“Welcome change from sterile chain hotels.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Came for an overnight visit to see the Ballet, great central location with lovely helpful friendly staff. Beautiful interior & ambiance. What a welcome change from sterile chain hotels & far better value. Best full English breakfast I have had in years. The bar area does need an upgrade (thus the 4 stars) but I was impressed by the cleanliness of my room & public areas. I enjoyed my stay so much so am planning return visit.

A walk in wet room the size of a normal bedroom was a highlight but at the price, the location, quality of finish in the room and overall cleanliness plus the friendly staff make this hard to knock on any level.

Would highly recommend. One negative comment - the bar area needs an overhaul but elsewhere all great.

I stayed a Friday evening and I must say the staff were very hospitable and welcoming, the room was spotless ( try and upgrade) ours was on the 4th floor. Central especially if you come for curry like we did. Breakfast was excellent. The bar is in need of some TLC but we were told a new bar is opening soon. Can't fault the Great Victoria will definitely be back, it was a perfect stay rather than the usual chain hotel, highly recommended

We stayed here for two days; it was a pleasant hotel but our visit was spoilt by having the car side window smashed to steal the satnav. This was recovered very soon after by the police. Back to the hotel. Wedding party in progress on second day so lots of serious drinking! Lovely big rooms and excellent service. Sleep disturbed somewhat by all night post office vans coming and going. Food was good quality both evening meals and breakfasts.

Made to feel really welcome when visiting my home city after many years away. All the staff were extremely pleasant and polite. I upgraded to one of the fourth floor rooms and was not disappointed..........lots of original features combined with modern furniture and soft furnishings, fantastically comfortable bed and amazing bathroom. Appreciated the complementary ice cold still and sparkling water in the room and the up market toiletry selection. Although the bar is a little austere the wine list was pretty extensive, plumped for a New Zealand Savignon Blanc and was not disappointed. Ate out as it was the curry festival but the hearty freshly cooked breakfast on Sunday morning went down a treat. All in all I couldn't fault the hotel and the the staff are a real credit to the new owners. Great Victoria you lived up to your name!

Room Tip: push the boat out and opt for the 4th floor!

I stay here once a month for business. The rooms are a little small but generally OK, my big problem is you cannot open the windows to let fresh air in (if there is any in Bradford) in the summer the rooms are very hot and I have to use a fan all night, and in the winter the first thing I do is turn the radiators off otherwise it becomes a sauna and very uncomfortable. The bar is nice and service in there is good. Breakfast is good and service is fine.
