“The place to be!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2011

We booked the Midland for our wedding in june and would recommend it to anyone whether you are just wanting a bed for the night, want to go out for a meal or are organising a wedding or conference, we have no doubt the hotel will exceed your expectations!!

Before we booked we went for a look round the hotel with Gary as our guide. Gary was very helpful and answered every question we had. The hotel itself is a victorian masterpiece with spectacular ballrooms and gives you a real taste of the splendor of times gone by.

We then went back to book and met Denise who really looked after us throughout the booking process. We ended up meeting with her several times and she was even there on the day to look after us. I cannot praise her enough for the way she helped to make it such a special day for us. She helped us organise a family meal for 30 of us the night before which also went without a hitch.

On the day running the wedding with Denise was Simon who also acted as toastmaster for us. He is very professional and would be a credit to any hotel. He handled the whole day very well and made sure everything went smoothly. We had a wedding breakfast and a hot buffet at night, the food was delicious and well portioned. The chefs obviously know what they are doing, and all the dietary requirements (some gluten free, some lactose free and some both) were met and dietary foods were even ordered in specially for our guests!!! The bar and waiting staff were all polite and helpful, they also clearly knew what they were doing and I could not fault them in any way.

As bride and groom we received a complimentary room for the wedding night and received a very spacious room with a four poster bed. There was a fair sized bathroom with a jacuzzi and separate large shower that we didnt use because of the jacuzzi. The room was clean and tastefully decorated and the bathroom was spotless. Waiting for us in the room was a nice bottle of bubbly and a gorgeous engraved photo frame from the hotel.

At breakfast in the morning we went down to the restaurant and were again impressed with the food and service. There was a buffet with a good selection of hot and cold food and the restaurant itself is a lovely room.

Overall we had a fantastic time and a lot of that is down to the hotel, they provide superb quality service in a beautiful setting. You can just imagine the victorians who built the hotel getting the same great service 100 years ago. The value placed on customer service is obvious when you speak to any member of staff and they cannot do enough to help you.

We will be using the hotel again whenever we can and are already wondering what excuse we can find to book something else there!!!

Overall, this hotel I felt was superb. The whole experience fromstart to finish and excellent value for money. A large double room was about £80 B&B. On arriving I was pleased to find a free of charge car park, welcomed by the newly renovated Victorian theme and decor of the old railway hotel and offered a complimentary glass of wine. From there the rest of the stay was excellent. Food in room service was well presented, tasty and excellent value and incurred no tray charges. The room was airy, clean and included free wi fi. The bathroom was spotless. Overall a great experience.

Stayed at the Midland for a 'FunctionEvening' recently. Very friendly,attentive staff. Excellent newly refurbished rooms, coupled with lovely 'characterful' main areas and function rooms make this a very comfortable hotel. We arrived a little early and were provided with a complimentary pot of coffee in the lounge whilst our room was being finished and then found that all our luggage etc had been taken to the room for us, with suits etc hung in the wardrobes.Nice touch. Meals were very good too. Would certainly go back

In an age of corporate hotels with exactly the same offering The Midland offers something different, a personal and friendly service, no blue print for room layout and good value.
I stay at The Midland frequently and when in Bradford would never stay at any other hotel (and I’ve been to most of them).
I would also highly recommend the front bar (better feel than the bar located next to Reception and cheaper!) as Matthew (the main barman) was friendly, informative and entertaining. Bar meals are also top notch as well.

We have just spent a long weeked and the Midland Hotel, returning after spending New Year there too. The Hotel has loads of history and the building has two superb entrances. We were looked after by the staff exceptionally well as always with nothing too much trouble and the food is excellent. Although an old building the rooms have been refurbished to a very high standard.

Room Tip: Opt for a De-luxe room.

I bought a "Gold Voucher" for my partner for Christmas, which was fantastic value and allowed us to have 2 nights DB&B in an executive room. We really enjoyed the hotel, the room was immaculate, the food was excellent and the service was tremendous. We were very impressed by the feel of the hotel, it feels special and is SO much nicer than a modern building with no history.

We didnt spend much time in Bradford instead taking the train to Leeds for some power shopping (about 5 mins walk to station and 20 mins journey).

Within a couple of weeks of returning home, we had to book another weekend away later in the year (thanks Wendy from Peel Hotels!).

We stay in hotels regularly and can honestly say that we judge this hotel to be a cut above.

We have just returned from a weekend stay at the midland hotel (18th march) and i just had to leave a review as from the moment we entered the hotel to the time we checked out we were looked after by friendly efficient staff. This hotel has some great rooms with lots of history and character and right in the city centre, 7 of us booked a stay here for a family get together and we wheren't dissappointed, checkin was quick and efficient with a smile and a complimentary glass of wine (very nice touch) our rooms where lovely, very clean with great bathrooms we stayed in rooms: 146, 139 and 4 poster 239.
our evening meals along with our breakfast were excellent the food and the service couldn't be faltered. i cannot reccomend this hotel enough we will be booking and staying again next may for a family birthday. it's nice to see a hotel appreciate and look after its guests as this is sadly not always the case, thankyou again to all the staff at the midland hotel keep up the good work.
