We travelled to Bradford to visit friends for the night and because of some renovation work at the house we decided to make use of the Highfield Hotel as the nearest hotel. In hindsight we should have stayed somewhere else. But hindsight is 20:20 So to review this hotel....... Reservation via phone was simple and straight forward, received a confirmation... More

After suffering the night before in "GoodNight Inn" , it was nice to come to The Highfield and see what real value you can get at a budget price. I was in room 400 which was enormous with a very comfortable bed and a good sized flat screen TV... Yes it was maybe a little dated, but perfectly adequate... Few... More

We stayed here last weekend when attending a Christmas function in Idle. The staff were very friendly. The hotel room was certainly larger than average and more than adequately furnished. I had forgotten that it had a swimming pool, I hadn`t gone prepared. The bed was lovely and comfy, i had a very good nights sleep. We hadn`t ordered breakfast,... More

I stayed there for a couple of nights whilst on a business trip. I chose this hotel as it had a leisure centre attached so it gave me something to do at night. Really glad I did. Gym was small but sufficient, pool and spa facilities were nice. The rooms were fairly basic, maybe the TV was a little small... More

We stayed here for 2 nights when attending a family celebration in Bradford. Our room was on the ground floor, the last one on the corridor leading to the spa. It was a huge room but very sparsely furnished with average quality wardrobe and table with mirror. On the web site it shows a sofa in the room but there... More

Big surprise was the a'Moo' restaurant , very relaxed and an absolutely brilliant burger! Hats off, no faults here. So , have a go, you will not be disappointed,... More

The bedrooms are very large but the tv in mine was temperamental, the decor in the hotel is dated but the staff were very polite,friendly and helpful. The hotel has a spa which is free for hotel guests but unfortunately they decided to clean out the Jacuzzi on Sunday morning and when my wife and I went down to use... More

Pros: good prices, generally very pleasant spa facilities, large rooms, comfortable beds, good proximity to Ilkley Moor etc and friendly staff. Cons: the mens' showers in the spa smelt strongly of urine, the wireless was undetectable in room 306, the breakfast was continental only/fairly minimal, the decor was dated and there was an extremely thin door between rooms 304 and...

Friendly staff, a decent pool, gym, sauna and steam room (free for guests), large bedrooms although the decoration is a little tired. The breakfast (continental) was sufficient and plenty of parking even when full. The only downside was that the bed was broken and we had to move rooms twice (the replacement room only had a double bed instead of... More

I stay at a lot of different hotels during the course of the year and although most give a friendly welcome, you sometimes get the impression that it's in their job description so they have to do it but the impression I got at The Highfield was that the staff really enjoy working there and this relaxed atmosphere rubs off...
