Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AngelaL A good night's stay
This hotel provided us with everything we needed for an overnight stay in Bradford. The room was clean, with complimentary tea and coffee and a TV to watch to relax after travelling. We had a good night's sleep as the bed and pillows were comfortable, the hotel was quiet overnight and the room was dark. The breakfast the next morning provided something for everyone and the whole stay was good value for money.

My daughter and I were in town for personal reasons which were very stressful to us. Happily, upon arriving in the hotel, we were greeted by friendly staff who gave us our keys and told us how to get to our room. We found the view about on par for the price we paid, but in truth, that was expected for the price.
The beds were very comfortable, the room clean and tidy, the bathroom a delight to use as it had a nice shower, and the tv maintained a crystal clear service despite remnants of Hurricane Gonzalo. Because the hotel is in a precinct visited by locals, there is a walkway between the hotel and the bowling alley which security are always patrolling. It does get a bit noisy, admittedly.
The breakfast was bog standard value baked beans, scrambled eggs, 2 kinds of toast, butter and jam, yogurt, cereals, juices, fresh fruits, and croissants. Teas were all Twinings, but there was only Everyday tea and herb/fruit infusions. The only other gripe was the terrible coffee - REALLY terrible :s But again, for the price, you really can't complain. Next time, I'll bring some Starbucks sachets or something.
The hotel is very amicably situated, with a cinemaplex and 3 restaurants on site, plus a bowling alley with a bar. Bradford Interchange is literally 2 minutes walk across the street, and the town center about 5 minutes. Easy to get about via buses, although we didn't have the time for sight seeing or anything. Getting to anywhere else you need to go would also be easy due to the train station being right there.
All in all, Bradford Holiday Inn Express was a pleasant experience, with lovely friendly staff :) I'd stay again if I planned on being in Bradford, and would recommend it to others.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JanKen poor access
one of the most difficult hotels to access.
whilst the hotel sign when you enter the city is easy to spot, getting there is another matter.
access is via a multi storey car park, you end up having to phone the hotel for diections - plus they dont tell you that there is no signage in the car park on how to get to the hotel.
not a lot of thought given to a traveller new to the city and arriving at night

Uncomfortable bed (saggy in middle). Toilet had been used prior to check in and not flushed. Sofa bed was covered in stains. Would stay in another room. Staff were very friendly. Did have to wait to be served at the bar and was not acknowledged whilst waiting which would have been nice. Breakfast could have more choice; i.e bacon and choice of eggs, choice of more cereals. Think the hotel would be better with sky tv when clients are relaxing in room for more choice of programmes as couldnt find anything to watch. We came to relax but found the facilities lacking. Room service would be good as we wanted a bottle of champagne but missed 2300 and would have liked a snack. so were disappointed. We like the location as not too far from town.
