Bradford may not be the most attractive place in the UK but the city centre has been cleaned up and is bright and pleasant. It is a good centre for touring the historically rich area and its many beauty spots.
For my week's business trip I chose to stay at the Midland on the recommendation of a local friend. I was delighted from the moment I walked in out of the snow to the warm welcome of the lovely receptionist (Jackie) and was offered a glass of wine. Check in was fast and efficient and my room was spacious, well equipped, comfortable, and spotlessly clean, and the bed was one of the most comfortable I've slept in for a long time.
The hotel is extremely well run and all the staff with whom I came into contact seem to take pride in their job and in making guests feel welcome, with a 'nothing is too much trouble' attitude.
I had dinner in the hotel restaurant twice, not a very extensive menu but everything was top quality and excellent value for money.
The hotel also has beautifully decorated public rooms and is an old railway hotel, restored with loving care, and really is a gem.
On a previous trip I stayed at the Hilton. The Midland is incomparably better.
