Stayed at this hotel whilst on business recently. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful and the hotel itself and the rooms were well appointed for the budget sector of the market and very clean. There is a comfortable bar, lounge and breakfast area. Unfortunately it was the breakfast which disappointed - little choice of hot food - just... More

Strayed for 2 nights in three rooms, would have been nice to have the rooms next door to each other but we were all on the same floor and corridor. The breakfast was plenty good enough, it could be busy and seating was a bit sparse. Very comfortable beds, good for a long sleep! Bathroom was great too, lovely shower.... More

Miaka1991 Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. Room allocation can depend on the room type you booked, as not all our twins and doubles are next to each other. We do, where possible assign you as close as we can. I am pleased to read you enjoyed the rest of your stay and I will take... More

Only staying overnight for work but was very impressed by the service offered. From the moment I walked in, I received a nice welcoming smile from Hollie the receptionist. She was friendly , efficient and helpful. The rooms are comfortable and quiet. All in all a great hotel in a very convenient location. Excellent value for the money.

The hotel is really convenient for the city centre and the train station, with the station being literally 2 mins walk away on the other side of the road and down the hill. The hotel staff were really friendly. The room was good, clean and exactly what you need from a HIE. There are lots of restaurants just outside the... More

Consistent with the standards I've come to expect from HIE chain. Rooms and common areas are clean and warm. Everything works. Beds are comfortable. Breakfast feels like a bonus when the competition is taken into account. Reception and breakfast staff were welcoming and efficient. Paid parking on site. Free Wifi

Stayed at this hotel as my company offices are in Bradford. The hotel is good value for money, it really is clean and comfortable. It has one of the best shower cubicles I have come across in any holiday inn express hotels, the bar area is quite good as well. The food menus are basic, however you get 20% off... More

Check in was swift and easy. Small selection of snacks in reception was sadly rather overpriced. The shower in the room was hot and powerful and the room itself was clean and tidy.
