I would just point out firstly that this place markets itself as a Boutique Hotel.

Well. Persuaded us to upgrade to a 'Deluxe' room as it would be further away from a disco taking place. Took their advice as we had our ten week old baby with us.

First question...do 'boutique hotels' have discos on Friday nights?

We were given room 2 for our extra cash. It was Directly above the disco, smelt of the smoke drifting in from downstairs, and acted as a bass box for the night from 10pm to 1am. We also heard DJ Dave's smarmy wise-cracks as if he was in the room next door. None of my young family got any real sleep during this time.

Then were woken by loud conversations in the room above from 5am to 8am.

This was a noisy place.

Hotels sell a good nights sleep to their customers. Not this one, and they took extra money from us for the pleasure.

"So why didn't you complain?"... We did, were told that the owner would sort something out for us, and they simply did nothing. Not even an attempt to ask if the second night was any better.

Awful.

Avoid.

A perfect hotel for a city break. The room was first class and the bathroom outstanding with a large walk-in shower, a huge bath and double sink unit. The room facilities were first class. The hotel is located in a quiet area of the city and very close to the lovely Lister Park which is well worth a stroll around. Our evening dinner was excellent, the portions large, well cooked and very and well presented. The staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. I would not hesitate to stay again if in Bradford.

If the previous reviews are anything to go by then there must be 2 Dubrovnik hotels in Bradford as I am even loathe to give this hotel 1 star.
I went as part of a coach trip. The room I stayed in was very dismal, the kettle only worked if you kept your finger on the power switch, the shower curtain was dirty and on one of the mornings there was asmell of sewage in the adjoining corridor. On the 2nd morning there was no hot water and when I tried to phone reception to complain there was no answer. I, therefore, phoned the landline number to be told that no-one was on reception. When I complained about the lack of hot water i wasn't even offered an apology.

Finally, the hotel is situated in a most unsavoury area of Bradford and we were advised not to venture out for a walk.

What a place!!!!!!!

I have just returned from having been at this hotel for the last 3 nights whilst attending a conference.
I booked 4 double rooms for single occupancy. Each of these rooms were of very good standard although I must add that there is no lift so if you have any difficulty ask for a ground floor room. They were large, clean and had good hospitality trays which included hot chocolate and biscuits.
The bathrooms of all 4 rooms were of good standard with great showers.
Breakfast was of very good quality. There was a good mixture of cereals although would liked to have seen some apple juice along with the orange.
Tea and coffee were both plentiful. Breakfast orders were cooked to order...I had perfectly cooked poached eggs on 2 of the mornings, the scrambled egg was plenticul and the traditional breaksfast was of very good quality with great herby saisages.
The car park outside of the hotel is a bit of a squeeze but we had no problems and whilst we were there a coach party were stayng with the coach in the car park....there is a lower car park which is bigger and just as safe
The area is in a residential area and we all felt safe.
We have already told the staff who are friendly and very efficient that we will be retuning next year for the conference its that good and we have tried quite a few in Bradford!

Room Tip: Corner rooms have great bay windows and are bigger
