The Great Victoria Hotel
Ranked #15 of 27 Hotels in Bradford
Reviewed August 1, 2012

For the price of the hotel (£49 including breakfast) this is excellent value.
The hotel is right in the centre of Bradford and is a grand old Victorian hotel. It has been modenised and the communal areas are done out to a high standard. The rooms have also been modenised though I think the quality of some of the furniture is not the best. The rooms are however perfectly adequate and very clean. The bedroom had a TV and a DVD player and you could borrow DVD's from reception free of charge which we did - they had a reasonable selection available. The staff were all very helpful and polite. Breakfast was also very good (especially considering the price of the room see above) with a full cooked breakfast available and the usual cereals and fruit on the bar.

For £49 the hotel is worth it's waiting gold! The staff were outstanding and could not do enough to help, and the communal areas had the wow factor! The hotel has a great location especially if your visiting the IMAX or the local restaurants. The hotel is a beautiful old building which has been very tastefully brought into the 21st century, and the bedrooms are bright, basic and clean which serve their purpose. I couldn't believe that for this incredible price we also got breakfast, free wifi and free parking! Amazing!

Stayed as part of a groupon deal and delighted to be allocated a luxury room (307) with four poster bed, very spacious and comfortable. Large en suite bathroom with shower over bath all very clean. Bedroom had flat screen tv and DVD player and we were advised on checking in that DVDs were available at reception if we required. Just one issue - the bath water is very low in pressure and the water trickled through so unable to enjoy a soak, so used shower instead. Tried again in morning and same problem. But this didn't spoil our stay at all. Dinner was lovely, very nice menu, served by an attentive waitress and breakfast rates as one of the best ever. The receptionist advised that there would be a wedding at the hotel on the saturday and apologised in advance for any noise etc, i can honestly say we did not hear a sound. Hotel is situated in the centre of bradford and is close by all amenities and even provides free guest car parking. We were visiting family in Bradford and will certainly look out for another similar deal for next time.

Stayed here with my family. We booked 3 rooms. We asked to be moved from 308 because water had leaked down the wall, which was still damp - the plaster was starting to come away from the wall and the room smelt musty. Moved to 207 - you need to pump the toilet handle to get the cistern to fill so you can flush the toilet - it didn't refill automatically. There was blood on the wall behind the curtains in 318 and the bed had broken slats. The shower in our last room did not work.
The staff were very pleasant, but reception was ridiculously slow and inefficient.
Breakfast was really good.

We stayed for two nights at the Great Victoria on the 30th of June 2012 and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It is a big hotel in the city and overlooking the Law Courts wih a Gala Casino next door. First impression was of an un-molested victoian building with massive public areas and high ceilings, this included the bedrooms. The hotel was spotlessly clean and the room large with bath, shower, toilet and sink, I could find nothing to criricise, TV could have been a bit bigger if I have to nit pick but that's about all. The bed was one of the most comfortable that I have slept in.We enjoyed the ambience in the bar and enjoyed dinner and breakfast which was to a high standard. Before writing this I have not read any other Trip Adviser revues so it will be interesting to see what others think. Bradford itself is filled with large well built Victorian buildings, unfortunately the town has almost completely been taken over by Asians and an hours people watching revealed no mixing or virtualy no mixing of the races. We had a good weekend and would happily return to this hotel.

Room Tip: I think that all rooms will be acceptable

The hotel very conveniently situated in the center of Bradford. A two minute walk will take you to the interchange. The staff were not very friendly and room was cold.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking time to post your comments onto TripAdvisor.

We are sorry to hear your experience at our hotel was not up to your satisfaction. During winter months the heating in the hotel is on all the time but being a listed building it is very hard to keep the temperature up to guests liking across the hotel.
In regards to your experience with staff, good customer service is of utmost importance for us and we are very sorry to hear that you have not been fully satisfied with received service.

Once again thank you for your feedback.

Kind regards,

Anna Krucinska

I stayed at this hotel from 1st to 3rd June 2012 and must say - I have never had service like this before - even at a five star hotel in London or worldwide.
The hotel is a lovely Victorian building on the square in Bradford - and before you say 'Bradford' let me tell you I thought the same but was put right back in my box by the spaciousness and graciousness of its Victorian heritage. Bradford was a thriving metropolis in the days of the English 'merchant'.
The hotel has been beautifully upgraded inside, the rooms are fabulous - as are the bathrooms - it is quiet and wraps itself around you with a feeling that says "come in, relax and sit a while".
The staff were extremely gracious and very efficient but in a very nice way - nothing was too much trouble.
I work for an international tour operator and am certainly going to recommend they look at it as base for our guided vacations which cater for people from all over the world. Our guests would love this 'window' into the real England.
Beds were wonderfully comfortable. Many of my guests commented on this. No-one wanted to leave,
Toodles
