“A gem In the middle of a city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2010

I recently stayed at this hotel, A relative was getting married there.
I found the room and bathroom well presented and in good size and order, the staff were very attentive and any problems were generally given their full attention.
TV channels were lacking i had our 2 year old son in our room and their was no cbeebies but reception staff offered a selection of DVD'S that were suitable,
I would happly stay again and for the price of the stay you could easily afford to stay again and again

We stayed for 3 nights. The staff were excellent, helpful and always around. The room was bright and well furnished, breakfast provided a very wide choice of buffet and cooked food all of a high standard. Its central location makes it an ideal place to stay in Bradford.

We stayed 1 night at the Great Victoria Hotel and were very impressed. The room was of reasonable size, clean and well appointed. When we arrived there was only 1 set of towels, and the window would not open, I let the reception desk know, and on returning half an hour later there were lots of towels and the window was open! All the staff we met were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was served in a huge wood panelled room and was delicious. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone.

Stayed here for 3 nights on Business in two different rooms. They have tried to modernise the rooms but without sufficient budget so it all looks a bit slapdash.
One of the rooms had the sash window wedged open with a piece of wood. Not exactly good for security (and this was one of the luxury rooms). You do not get sky television despite what the website says and to be honest its not really great value for money.

Restaurant was good and no problem with the breakfast but if you are going to update the rooms then do it properly!

This is a centrally located hotel across the road form the Bradford Interchange Station. Walking distance to The Alhambra Theatre, Imax and Cineworld.
The staff were very friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean and well decorated.

Booked a standard room for weekend away. Check in was easy and there is a large reception/lounge area. All public areas are kept clean and modern but still hold the classic side of the building. Rooms are not huge but are nice and clean with a double bed. TV did not have good reception so not realy worth watching. Otherwise were comfy with everything you need. Bathroom was large and clean though not as modern as the rooms etc. breakfast was in a smallish room and continental breakfast with some cooked breakfast, all self service. Staff were friendly. Would recomend to stay here though dont trust all the pics from the hotel websites as the rooms do look a lot bigger!.
