Since my Yorkshire childhood I have always wanted to stay in the grandest hotel in Bradford, The Midland and a family wedding gave us the excuse. Okay, like the railway which spawned this hotel, it's golden age is long past, but it still reminds one of what a great place this must have been, and a wonderful bit is still left in the old station entrance which now leads to/from the car park. It is wonderfully old fashioned and even if the rooms are little shabby they are clean and big with grand sash-windows even if the view is of yet another everlasting development on it's doorstep which the hotel will once again outlast! The cheerful staff are happy in their work and attentive, working at the Midland still carries kudos in Bradford! There is a fantastic history to the place and we loved going down the grand staircases to the restaurant. At £150 for 3 nights for a twin with breakfast, through Superbreak, we got a bargain. We had dinner Friday night, £37.90 for 2x3 courses was a bargain for the superb cooking, no fancy food, just good honest fayre, perfectly cooked and presented, great chef here. We didn't have wine, a carafe of soft pennine tap-water is treat enough for us London dwellers! Breakfast was good, fine selection of fresh fruit, and the staff and service perfect. There are not many reasons to visit Bradford but this hotel is one of them! Check out their Xmas offers, they look a bargain if our stay is anything to go by. Oh, the fire alarm did go off briefly at 5am Sunday morning, but a quick call to reception soon put our minds at rest and we were back asleep in 5 minutes!
