“Pleasant Place, good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2009

I liked this hotel. It has some rough edges, but it's a friendly, good value place to stay.

You can avoid some confusion by looking for reception in the pub. The door marked 'reception' leads to four other doors, none of which is obviously reception. There is some risk of entering the women's toilet by accident, since the sign for that is only a couple of feet off the floor.

We found the room clean, quiet, and interesting.

I recently stayed at the New Beehive whilst house hunting in Bradford with my student son. Having been attracted by the online description and the promise of real ale in a traditional and homely setting with beds to boot, I was not disappointed. The place is a hidden gem and offers the beer enthusiast a wide choice of well kept cask ales with an extensive collection of bottled continental specialist beers and malt whiskies to ring the changes.

The bedrooms are clean and comfortable and offer excellent value for money. The landlord and staff are friendly and welcoming and the breakfast was just was required to set one up for a day of footslogging. The atmosphere in the evening is enhanced by original gas lights and there is a choice of bars to suit most customers. The cellar bar offers live entertainment on Saturdays.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this inn as an ideal alternative to those people, like me, who are looking for an interesting and enjoyable alternative to chain and business hotels that are the same where ever one goes in the world. An added bonus if the close proximity of a couple of Indian restaurants that offer excellent and cheap sustenance.

Lovely building with super period features.
Very helpful and attentive staff.
If you enjoy music this is worth a try.
Good selection of beers etc.
Quirky.
Very friendly clients who brought out the acoustic guitars (full marks to the bloke on trombone & the chap with the bird sounds)
For the money - excellent value.
Car park fine, just to rear of backdoor.
Having read a previous review was a bit feared of ' Irish club' to the rear BUT this appeared to be shut & we found that the friends we were visiting in Bradford run a folk night there 1x per week, so not at all scary.
Excellent taxi service running 10yds away.
We will be going back and thoroughly enjoyed meeting the people there.

The pub itself is excellent - especially for devotees of good beer. The interior really attractive with what looks like authentic Edwardian decor. At £40 for B & B it was reasonably priced. The staff were friendly and the pub filled with locals - always a good sign.
The room was clean and adequately furnished with en suite bathroom. Nothing spectacular but just what you'd expect in that price range. I could just hear the throb of music from the cellar bar downstairs but it didn't bother me. Rather atmospheric, in fact. It would only be a problem for those who are precious about silence!! My difficulty with the music was, as I had an early start, resisting the temptation to go down and join it.
Fine for a short stay. I was only there for one night and would have liked a second crack at the superb Black Sheep bitter!
