“Friendly hotel”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This is pretty much a standard Holiday Inn, but two things make it stand out when I need to do business in Leeds. Firstly, the staff are friendly and helpful; secondly, the location is picturesque and peaceful.

Stayed one night at Holiday Inn Bradford and surprised with its lovely country setting. Room with twin double beds with plenty of room and very quiet. Very clean and cared for hotel. Food good with a varied menu, and many options for breakfast.

Staff very attentive and we would certainly go back for another stay there.

Note that we understand that it can get busy with weddings and we were advised to check it out if there is a wedding on when you intend to stay.

My husband and I decided to get married 18 months ago and after visiting lots of venues we made our choice to have our ceremony our wedding breakfast and our evening reception here. We took advantage of the offer which was for 50 day guests and 80 evening plus lots of other extras. Right from the beginning we were given a 1st class service from Melissa who was our wedding coordinator with everything explained to us in detail and nothing at all was too much trouble even though we made several changes.
We had family visiting from cumbria, Glouster, Devon, Spain and Australia so it was really important to get the venue right.
The night before the bridesmaids and I stayed in one of the large suites which was ample with a large double and 2 large sofa beds with 2 large flat screen tv's. we had a lovely choice of breakfast and then lots of room to get ready for the wedding. The day of our wedding was just pure magic and perfect in every way, Mary looked after our every need and nothing was too much trouble for her and her staff.
Tony on reception was very kind to us and our guests and did a fab job, the hotel is spotless.
The only grumble we had was the Dj? he let us down a bit but overall an amazing venue with lovely gardens for photos with courteous staff who actually do care and want you to have a lovely experience.
The morning after the wedding we again had breakfast and the room had been cleaned and made back up for us. All the decorations and wedding things were all waiting and boxd up ready to take away.

We would like to recommend the holiday inn leeds Bradford and would like to thank all the staff at the hotel for everything they did for us, and say a special thank you to Melissa who organised our wedding and all the little extras she did for us which were big things to us you are priceless and to Mary for making the day run so smoothly and being so patient and kind.
Well done holiday inn, you have a superb team.
Thank you again for making us so happy.

We booked and paid for a room on 16th March 2013 through Expedia to attend a wedding in August 2013. Upon arrival at check in the receptionist stated that she did not have any record of our booking. We had taken the booking confirmation with us and the receptionist then tried to contact Expedia who eventually agreed that they had taken a booking from us and had received the cash. The hotel was fully booked which entailed us driving 50 miles home after the reception and not being able to enjoy the evening fully with our friends. After calling the manager of the hotel, as the receptionist was too busy to bother with us, we did eventually get our money back and they stated that they would claim it back from Expedia as they had sent the booking to the wrong fax number.
We have since contacted Expedia who have been less than apologetic for the mix up. Not impressed with them at all.

Stayed here for my brothers wedding, the reception was held at the hotel.I would not recommend it.The whole place seems geared towards weddings.This made it extremely noisey, I was there for a wedding so cant really complain.But if you wanted a quiet country stay look elsewhere.There were about 10 shouting kids running up and down the halls and reception until midnight.
My room when I checked in was rather dirty and in need of repairs.The taps on the bath/shower were not attached to the wall, and the soap dish was falling off the wall.One of the lamps in my room appeared to have been vomited on ( I kid you not, ill try to upload a pic) and had a brief wipe, but still had hair stuck to it.The stain was the size of a dinner plate and was speckled with paint spatters.I wasnt brave enough to turn it on incase it caused a smell.In general the room was dirty, hair in the bath, dirty fixtures n fittings.Bedding was clean thank god.
The staff seemed friendly enough, and gave good service.But did seem more occupied with the weddings than anything else.
Overall I think it was way overpriced due to the poor state of the interior.I have stayed in far nicer places for half the price.

I have seen the manager actually reply to these reviews, so this next part is for he/she.
It is your and your staffs job to deal with these issues PRIOR to paying guests checking in.Not to comment on reviews blaming customers for not complaining.The lamp in my room was absolutely disgusting, there is no way housekeeping did not know about it, it was the first thing I saw.The bathroom fixtures again must have been known they're hanging off the wall.This is unacceptable when there are other hotels nearby that are half the price ( I checked out my brothers room at your competition TL rooms were better).
