“brilliant budget hotel”
Reviewed March 29, 2011

this is a brilliant budget hotel, the staff at this hotel are very friendly and cant do enough for you, any problems are quickly resolved, on one occasion i asked to be moved to a different room and was moved straight away, the staff are friendly helpfull and its like a second home when you work away for long periods which is very nice as this placxe feels like a home away from home, the breakfast is good value for money coffee machine has good quality coffee in it so you dont mind drinking it some hotels coffee is bitter, the only thing i would cahnge is the beds they tend to be a bit hard but otherwise i cant fault the rooms at all

We were looking for somewhere inexpensive to stay for one night in Bradford. As we were travelling up from the south late in the evening and leaving early the following morning and there were 3 of us this seemed an ideal option. We were all in same room which many other hotels couldnt accomadate.

On arrival we were greeted by a reception area full of drunken men who were very loud. For 3 females travelling together this was very imtimidating. On all accounts this is what happens every night and nothing appears to be done to have them removed. They have access to alcohol which is sold on the premises! If I had, had to bring my children along I would have made a quick exit. When I asked the receptionist if they were always there he said "yes, I should try to get them to leave".

We were allowed to look at the room before we paid, luckily we had brought wipes with us as the room was not 100% clean. The bedding was clean and we had been given a disabled room so was quite spacious. The bathroom smelt of urine so we all wore flip flops in the shower.

As our stay in Bradford was at short notice and a surprise for a close friend we never mentioned beforehand where we were staying. When we told them they were all mortified. It is not in a particularly nice part of town.

In future we will be paying a higher price to stay somewhere better.

I stayed last night at the Etap Bradford. Have to say the receptionist working last night was extremely welcoming and very helpful. Its location is pretty ideal but thats about as far as I would go in terms of positives.

A previous post mentions the groups of blokes congregating in the foyer/communal area. This hasn't been addressed and last night resembled a drunken social club. I found the beds to be extremely uncomfortable. There was continual noise right through the night which seemed to come from all over the hotel. The breakfast is well overpriced, very limited in choice and the fact that all the bread was stale and only one tiny toaster for the whole hotel made the superstore across the road look the clever choice.

However, negatives aside, if you're after somewhere cheap, ideally located and your expectations are pretty low then this would fit your bill.

Great value, budget venue that IMHO delivers what it offers. On arrival staff were found to be very helpful & quickly attended to a couple of minor things. However the fact that when returning to the venue at around 8.30 pm each evening, one has to run the gauntlet of having to pass through high numbers of semi drunken male guests who have been allowed, every evening, to congregate en mass in the foyer/breakfast bar area armed with large quantities of alcohol, made us feel uncomfortable. Would recommend 'with caution'
