First time staying in a Holiday Inn so difficult to really judge the quality however for a budget hotel chain what can you really expect. Staff were very friendly, facilities clean and cheerful but nothing special. The area surrounding the hotel is the best selling point as far as I'm concerned - several restaurants, cinema, bowling alley etc.

Stayed on third floor, very easy and quick stay. Parking is £4 for 24 hours which was cheap but they offer no reimbursement. Next to pizza hut, nandos, frankies and bennies, casino and Hollywood bowl. Great location for a quick visit. Overall happy.

The hotel is with in leisure complex and you park in the complex car park on the forth floor which is not mentioned on the hotel website. Cost is £4... More

Don't let the title put you off. Holiday Inn Express is a solid budget hotel and this Bradford offering supports the brand positioning fully. The welcome was warm and unpretentious. Room was clean and modestly furnished. The bed was comfy. The overall feel of the hotel good... They take a strong view on noise in the hotel which appeals to... More

Normally when something is cheap, I am normally of the motto well its cheap so you can't complain. However our general experience here was well below average and makes me question the Holiday Inn brand..

You park in the complex carpark on level 4 then walk about 200 years and the hotel is on your right I don't know if it's in keeping with the state of Bradford on purpose but the hotel is old, tired and a bit of a dump. Tiles in bathroom were scummy and could do with replacing. Carpet was manky... More

I rarely write reviews but after getting back from our trip last week we are still all seething about this hotel. It was cheap but that is no excuse for cleanliness and basic amenities not working.
