Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Windyhill Refurbishment needed urgently!!!
I have been to this area before but never stayed in Bradford, which had some surprising parts in town to offer, this property is located in the perfect spot if you want to explore the city on foot. It is also sitting on top of an amusement park (chain restaurants, cinema, casinos etc) and in the middle of one of the busiest interchanges downtown. If this were New York... the hotel still would need a refurbishment (wallpaper coming down, lifts seem outdated, items are missing, mattresses are far too soft and old...) and somebody needs to clean all areas thoroughly!!! Please, do future guests the favour of getting this place up to date and speed, after all, you are right in the middle of it all in Bradford!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Friendly staff and a quiet room.
I stayed for three days whilst on business. Staff were very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The hotel doesn't really look like much from outside due to its position as part of a leisure complex. Therre were a lot of people outside, going to the cinema or eating out. However this noise could not be heard once inside the room. The room was clean and well appointed with a nice clean bathroom. The only downpoints I could find related to a lack of electrical outlet sockets in my room. i could only find two and the fact that there was no air conditioning that I could locate. If you are like me and have trouble sleeping when it is hot at night then perhaps asking for an air conditioned room may be your best option. Apart from that I would recommend it.

There is numerous food places, bowling, cinema and even bingo within a few minutes walking distance.

The only major negative I found about this hotel is the traffic noise even with the window closed and after midnight you could hear traffic noise.
The rooms want a slight upgrade in better televisions but all in all this is an excellent hotel with some really good staff, and the position for the city centre could not be improved.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PeterOz Breakfast Variety and Making the Chairs in the Lounge more Comfortable
The buffet Breakfast has to be improved greatly by adding more variety to the food served. For example, the foods like the croissants and similar pastries must be baked very fresh. My experience was that of eating non-fresh pastry.
Also the presentation of the breakfast has to be very appetizing as many people like myself finds it very difficult to have appetite very early in the morning.
The timing for breakfast should also be extended.
While the Lounge seems to be OK, there is need to improve on the furniture as the cushions and chairs are very hard on the bottom, which makes it very uncomfortable to relax there and have some drinks from the bar. The Lounge should be designed to entertain drinking in the bar. I was there during the World Cup and found it very uncomfortable relaxing in the Lounge area and enjoying the world cup with some pints of beer. The seating was very uncomfortable and the surrounding was not ambiance at all.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by collcarre smoking rooms
great if you a smoker, we stopped in room with couch too, drinking, pizza hut below so saved a fortune and had romantic time. WIFI and numerous TV channels too. Only criticism was my Partner not happy with breakfast as no bacon, i'm veggie no mushrooms or tomatoes, scramble egg on toast for me, chicken sausages for him but lots of healthy stuff for healthy people and pastries/rolls, jams, cheese, even Marmite for the rest of us and open till 10.30, some people sat there all morning enjoying themselves, which was good and not a problem with the helpful staff, coffee machine good lots of choice. Overall fantastic hotel and staff courteous. Holiday Inn Express Will be our regular hotel now when visiting my parents.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Teletubbies 24 Comfortable and close to the train station
We used this hotel as a place to stay before a visit to Leeds University the next day. The hotel was friendly, convenient, close to places to eat and a two minute walk away from the train station. The staff were very helpful when enquiring about trains and the locality of the station.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by bungle2 Nice place to stay. Staff could be more welcoming
I had to stay overnight for an early morning meeting. Arrived at the hotel greeted the lady at the reception only to be met by a cold stare. Not very welcoming.
I had my elderly mother with me. She can't walk long distances so getting to the hotel from the car park was difficult.
The rooms décor needs updating, wallpaper peeling off.
Shower should have a sliding door or curtain at least to stop the water from flooding the bathroom.
In the morning breakfast was great. Nice start to the day. The guy at the reception when checking out did greet me with a smile.
Overall a good stay. But would hesitate to return with my Mum.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Chris763 Pretty normal
Very much like any holiday inn, clean but carpets could do with a deep clean.
I hAd a smoking room which is a pleasant surprise being a smoker, so I didn't need to keep going outside.
Evening dinner however was a bit disappointing, it seemed like the food wS microwaved, chips were a bit hard, and batter on fish a bit tough.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tasha90 Would stay again
I stayed for one night and would definitely stay again. The hotel public areas were clean as was the room, the staff at reception were friendly and informative and I had a good nights sleep. I liked the after hours security at the front door (you have to use your room card to access the building) as well as the added security feature for accessing the room landings (again you have to use your card)

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jenny6520 ok
I have never stayed in an express before and wouldn't hurry to again. The hotel was really warm, public areas were boiling and rooms were too warm as no air conditioning. The beds were quite possibly the worst we've ever slept in at a hotel. We were a group of 6 and all said the same. It was also really noisy as the leisure exchange runs underneath, my room was above a passage way and people were using it until about 3am. Between the noise, heat and terrible bed very little sleep was got. However the staff were very pleasant, the hotel was clean and well maintained and the breakfast was good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rongle Exceptional Value
The hotel was first class in every way. I booked a single room but was given a twin with just about every facility provided. Couldn't be more delighted with that. Breakfast was good in a nice, bright area and communal areas first class.
Only thing I would suggest is better information as to how to get to the car parking facilities. Once there the value, again, was good. Liked the fact that there were so many facilities within walking distance of the hotel. Overall a first class experience and I will book again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Keyser First time in Bradford
Had to stay over for a night. Great location, with all the likely places you are going to use nearby. Rooms are average, but its good value for money. Showers are fine.
Not the greatest Hoilday Inn express...but does the job perfectly.
I just wish they tell guests with cars. To park in car park etc..
I did a few laps, before i called them to take instructions..

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 007jet First Class nights sleep
Having mobility problems we have accessibility rooms and have found with years of experience that twin beds in hotels are the answer to a good nights sleep. Here at Bradford the room was quiet, comfortable and a good view of the city.
The only down side to the room was the shower - a very, very slow trickle and not much warmth to it either. Good job it was a very warm couple of days so cooler showers were OK.
Hotel is at top of hill but even so it is a lovely gentle stroll down to the Centre and to St. Georges Hall and Alhambra Theatre.
Staff are very good even if one young lady is unsure of which is left and right.
Breakfast was very good with a very kind and helpful lady to assist if necessary.
It takes a bit of getting used to going up to fourth floor to park car then back down to ground floor to cross concourse to access lift up to 2nd floor for Reception.
This is the only reason we have given 4star rating instead of 5star
Thank you everyone we will be back again soon

My wife and I found parking to be quite difficult as it was early evening on a Saturday and the level we were advised to park on was almost full. We have a disabled parking badge but did not discover the disabled parking bay until after we had parked elsewhere.
The hotel entrance is tucked away among all the other entertainment distractions and is not very welcoming.
This is England where the ground floor, as far as lifts are concerned, is floor "1" not "0" - we have enough Americanisms in daily life without introducing more.
When we book a twin room we expect twin beds, not a fold down and uncomfortable settee.
Junk food is available just outside the hotel but a long walk is necessary to get a decent meal somewhere. The staff had no suggestions as to where we might eat but just pointed in a general direction.
The design of the bathroom leaves a lot to be desired, it is virtual impossible to have a good shower without soaking the bathroom floor - what was wrong with the old Holiday Inn Express bathrooms?
Neither my wife nor I like square dishes and the ones available at breakfast were awful - obviously designed so the diners do not eat so much. The yoghurt was cheap and nasty.
To sum up, having been one who has always enjoyed the Holiday Inn experience, I will not be staying here again nor recommending to anyone.

I always stay at this hotel when visiting Bradford. It is very close to the City Centre and travel hubs. I was attending a show in Leeds and it worked out cheaper to stay in Bradford and travel to and from Leeds by train The hotel staff are are very friendly and helpful. The bed is comfortable and it is sufficiently quiet during the night.Free wifi and breakfast make this an excellent choice

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by gbusuttil Good hotel and friendly staff
Been using this hotel for over 5 years and stay was always pleasant. However, the rooms need an overhaul especially the beds as they are very uncomfortable. During the summer days when it is unusually hot the rooms get hot especially on the top floor. No air conditioning and the lack of fans make a summer hot day unbearable.

Can't really fault this hotel great value and the staff are all very good and helpful. TV s and channels need up dating and the movie service is hit and miss, but at the price I can live with this!
All in all for business in Bradford it does a great job
I guess for feed back having stayed there on and off over the last 5 months the food menu needs changing!
