“Best value in Britain ?”
Reviewed April 24, 2011

Maybe its because most people would not think of Bradford as their short break city of choice that this hotel is so cheap £44.00 for a twin room with hot breakfast. Its a modern hotel overlloking Bradfords latest attraction,a giant hole vacated by the Westfield property co.

You park in a Multi storey carpark which is subsidised at £3.00 for 24 hours and everywhere left standing in the city centre is walkable.

The greeting was worm and welcoming the hotel beautifully clean and the room superb.
I have stayed in some of the best hotels in the world and the thing that made this hotel so good was its unpretentiousness and the way it did things well. The room was big enough the bathroom with shower good and the beds and pillows first class what more do you need when staying for just two nights and spending all day out and about.

The breakfast was adequate beans sausage and toast with machine coffee other diners supplemented their breakfast by eating totilla chips and dips (UGH). Incidently when faced with machine coffee go for a double dose of espresso and add milk its almost ok.

Stayed here during February for one night. Having lived in the area some years ago this hotel was new to me. It is well located near the Interchange and walking distance to the city centre. Rooms were good and clean and the near by car park is good value. The hotel us keenly priced and to be reccomended.

2nd stay and excellent..lovely welcome on recpetion by lady called Ana who was very pleasant and helpful..ideal location for city centre and cheap hassle free parking. Room very nice and very clean..everything we needed
Nice touch now with the addition of hot sausages and scrambled eggs into the breakfast menu..even without it its still a very good continental breakfast
Price is so reasonable and such good value....ony problem was we had an adjoining room( ie room fo families or groups with connecting door) which wasnt ideal you heard every snuffle, and sneeze and cough .. not to mention their very loud TV at 11.30 pm..quick call to receptionn and this ceased, so handled very effeciently and effectively by night staff
If you do get allocated one of these rooms might be good idea to see if you can swap as they are noisy especailly if your neighbours arent too considerate !

This hotel is really good. One of the Expresses that gives the chain their good name. The rooms were very clean and modern - could not fault. Breakfast was lovely continental with a few extra hot bits which got me through until dinner! Bar area pleasant. Staff here are really great. Chap that checked me in was efficient, cheerful and chatty. Later saw him helping elderly lady in snow so really cant ask for better service. I would stay here again and even travel a few extra miles if on business in Leeds even. Would recommend...thumbs up from me.

Very central and secure location with parking (which you have to pay £2.80 per day for but if you move your car you have to pay that each time).
It's up to the normal good standard of holiday inn very clean, rooms small but adequate, breakfast ok for the money (buffet style) and really great staff.
You are guaranteed a certain level of comfort and service with holiday inn and this place doesn't disappoint.
