“very basic and doesn't feel safe!!”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

So we arrived at the hotel to see a police riot van! never a good first impression. I would describe this place as a hostel and not a hotel!! It is clearly used as a half way house for the homeless which isn't a problem, but there was a lot of drinking and drug taking going on.
Our room was extremely basic and rough around the edges but I guess you get what you pay for. However the bed linen, toilet and shower were clean. I did not sleep well at all as I just didn't feel all that safe (bloody tissues all along the corridor where there had obviously been a fight)
I would not stay here again and advise you not too, its definitely worth paying extra and staying in a nice hotel!!!!

Highly competitive price; pleasant welcome at reception; clean, basic, room but fine for a night, especially at the price. Room at back less noisy than front. Easy walking distance from Bradford Forster Square Station; retail park across road for Tesco, Greggs (cheap breakfast filler en route to station)

Room Tip: Quieter rooms at back; front looks onto busy road

I was greeted and checked in, by Stacey. Very professional Reception Lady. I met TWO more Ladies at this Hotel, operating The Reception 24 Hrs. per day.
They were ALL excellent, and a credit to the IBIS Organisation. I enjoyed my first stay . I shall be returning to experience a well organised and happy team at IBIS -Bradford.

Room Tip: All the rooms are well presented for a Budget Hotel.

Ok if you're not expecting very much from your room. We stayed in a standard (for 3 persons) with only 1 plug socket, claustrophobic toilet cupboard, no kettle and a tv with very limited channels. Shower is very good however and the staff are very friendly. There is a seating area with basic food facilities. Although you will probably be best off going to the garage next door or Tesco over the road as it will be a lot cheaper. You can get a better deal for £15 in Blackpool which is also self catering (were there last week). This place isn't for everybody, however it might be for you.
