Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rosie68 Great service at reception
Always enjoy the stay at Bradford holiday inn due to its central location and parking. However. I really struggled to sleep as neighbouring room occupants were very noisy with children running from room to room.
Hot breakfast items were of poor quality and not very hot!
Thankfully we always get a warm welcome from manager Ginta.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by asif7194 Not a good experience
Stayed at this hotel on a saturday night. It is in a great location,but the layout is quite different. Staff seemd really rude and not helpfull at all. The room itself seemd like one out of a harry potter movie, the best were really uncomfortable! Next time i will pay abit more money and stay in a better hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MammyDonk Staff are the best.
Stayed at the Bradford exchange holiday inn for 2 nights last week. We were touring some of the local golf courses so location was ideal. It was the first timy we stayed with holiday inn and we were really pleased with our stay. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was limited in choice but what there was was really nice anx it was free. The best thing about the hotel was the staff. The receptionists were so friendly and helpful. They brightened the day and were a credit to the company.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Alic78 Central comfortable convenience
Room a good size, clean, modern and efficient. Towels and toilet paper a little rough. Heater needed dusting as it smelt like burning every time I put it on. Central location good but a very busy noisy road outside. Good breakfast. Useful free wifi.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by selina123 comfort
the room smelt unpleasant( not a smoke smell) , the furnishings were old and tired, the sofa bed cover was ripped.
the breakfast had no bacon and the scrambled egg was dry, ran out of crossiants.
we have stayed in other cheap hotels and the standard of general upkeep in the rooms was poor. the staff kept it as clean as possible with what they had to work with.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Boboy Poor breakfast
Although the room was comfortable, my experience was sadly let down by the breakfast. I went for breakfast at 8.30 to find cold sausage, cold Beans , no bacon, overcooked scrambled eggs with no other egg choice, the croissants were very stale. This is not what I expect from any breakfast buffet

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Driver52 Great staff, tired room.
It's an ok hotel. The staff are excellent, nothing's a bother. Food in the evening is well cooked and a fair price.
However the rooms I have stayed in are beginning to look weary now. The television is quite outdated and frankly I stuck to my I pad in the main, which didn't like the wi fi, but 4G coverage helped. Heating is hit and miss, none in the bathroom ( or extractor fan ) which makes showers a steamy affair!
Bed was ok, although when my wife joined me up here, it showed up a very tired mattress, big trough in the middle!
The BIG plus for any smokers is that you CAN have a smoking room. At last somewhere which recognises choice!
In all not bad, good value, good location just needs a bit of TLC.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AJCL Good service and value for money
Checking in was quick and staff friendly. Room was neat, clean and overall in good condition, apart from the TV... Old, small unit. Not a great choice of (free) channels, NO sport channels????
Breakfast was slightly disappointing - especially the egg & sausages (no bacon).
Checkout was efficient.
Complimentary wifi internet for unlimited number of devices! That's excellent.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cornwallchris A good deal but it was hot
Considering the hotel was full the staff were very good.
food outlets were handy and the parking simple.
We did not realise that some Holiday inns did not have air con and for once as it was warm and very stuffy we needed it but there wasn't any.

It is really competitive price including breakfast in England. The hotel is located in a business center. However it was difficult to find parking entrance.

We only stayed one night but would heartily recommend HIE. The room was bigger than we expected, it was cosy and everything worked. We like to drink team and when we asked for extra tea bags and milk it was willingly provided.
Thanks for a great stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by shipstoreman smart room and comfortable in general
quite a nice but brief stay, a little disappointed with the television, only 6 channels available and no sky available.
breakfast was basic but enjoyable with friendly staff always attentive, will stay again and reccomend this hotel for short stays or business stop overs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Safep Good clean and comfortable room
Quick and trouble free booking in process, room was extremely clean and comfortable fitted with a small but good quality TV with a good selection of channels to choose from.
The room is equipped with coffee and tea making facilities but be warned you may need to go and ask for more tea and coffee as there is only enough for a couple of drinks each.
The location is on a complex that boasts a number of eateries such as Pizza Hut, Frankie and benny's in addition there is a Bowling ally, cinema, and casino.
All in all a pleasant stay with the bonus of a continental breakfast in the cost of your room.
There is a number of places within walking distance and a subsidised multi story on the complex For £4.00 when you get your parking ticket stamped at the reception. Although you could park in a municipal open car park just 2-3 minutes Walk from the hotel for £2.50 for 24 hours which allows you to come and go without having to keep paying every time you return to the car park during that 24 hour period

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Siddurst Good and Bad
I have stayed at this hotel before and was pleasently impressed with the service even with no benefits available for being a Platinum member.
Unfortunately this time round I discovered that you can get a discount for parking which was not mentioned before on my previous visit at checkin.I found this out from another customer not even the staff.
Also this time round the hotel ran out of on tap beer and REFUSED to give discount on bottle beer even to a Platinum member, the manager walks around without a name tag/badge his reply was IT IS WHAT IT IS not even SORRY.
Not that it makes any difference to you, Im only one person who will look at alternative hotels.I have relised there are other hotels around the area with there own car parking and probably air conditioned rooms.
Its ashame I have to write this review just aweek ago I was singing praises for this hotel.Now its the total opposite.
I will be signing up for other hotels loyalty schemes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stanley01 Really Convenient
This Hotel is 5 mins walk from Bradford Interchange Station.
We were staying here to visit Railway Museum in York, which is such an expensive city to stay.
Room was clean and well equipped.
This is our second stay here and certainly will not be our last.
It is always excellent value for money.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rosie68 Good standard
Being a regular visitor to Holiday Inn Bradford we generally have a good stay. One or two niggles with our last stay though. The TV desperately needs upgrading: the colour kept on disappearing and it was impossible to take advantage of the comimentary movie as the manager informed us the TVs were so old we would not be able to access the movie channels.
I can never access the hotels wifi either in the rooms or the public areas.
This time there was also very limited breakfast items. Even thugh we went to breakfast quite early, 8.00am, there were no croissants and only 2 varieties of cereal on offer.

This hotel is in a very convenient location for sight seeing in Bradford and travelling further a field via trains or buses.The transport interchange is across the road.The Hotel is high up offering lovely views over the city to the Yorkshire countryside.Breakfast offered just about anything you would want to eat early in the morning.All the staff I came into contact with were very helpful and friendly.Just outside the entrance to the hotel are several restaurants if you did not want to eat in the hotel or venture too far into the cityThere is also a cinema and bowling alley nearby..

I stayed at the holiday in express as I was working in bradford, and whilst the hotel was very comfortable, the room clean; it was the staff who really stood out for me. From the moment I arrived to the moment I checked out every member of staff was so friendly and helpful.
The only thing that would have been better, would have been bacon at breakfast :)

Very safe hotel! Slept so well as beds were sooooo comfy. They changed the towels every day even though they said it would be every 2 days. A big bonus for me. The staff were friendly and courteous - nothing too much trouble. Everything you need for a great stay. Thank you Holiday Inn.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SuzieB Room was very comfortable, clean and staff very friendly.
We've stayed here at least once or twice every year since it first opened. Each time we have received a very warm welcome from the staff, good service and a comfortable, clean bedroom and bathroom. We particularly like the low-level spacious shower.
The bar lounge area has comfortable seating to sit and relax. It is also well served by various food outlets, a cinema, cash point machines, casino, gaming machines and bar + family area - all within 30 second walk from the entrance to the hotel. A multi-storey car park is also a stone's throw away and you can get your ticket stamped at the hotel reception for a discount. Very reasonable parking prices too.
We usually use the hotel as a base and particularly enjoyed our day out in Saltaire (approx. 1/2 hour car ride) visiting the Saltaire Mill. If you enjoy looking at interesting buildings, history, art, books, antiques, nostalgia. We also enjoyed a lovely meal at The Old Tram Shed.
We would definitely recommend this hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Katie24 All fantastic!!! Well except the breakfast...
Very happy with the hotel experience the whole hotel was very safe and secure especially the parking area. Very pleasant communal areas, the bedrooms were well presented and clean. The bathroom was clean, tidy and well lit. I would have liked complimentary shampoo included as standard but this was available on request. But for the low price I paid I was pleasantly surprised how much my money did get me.
The only disappointment was the breakfast, the breakfast area was very cramped and it was tricky to get through without knocking into anyone. The breakfast selection was extremely limited and wasn't particularly nice. The cereals and juice were nice, but the cooked breakfast (which let's face it is the main reason for getting a hotel breakfast!) was very poor. The only options were shrivelled sausages, scrambled eggs and beans.
Great value for money, comfy and pleasantly decorated, just avoid the breakfast.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kitty1960 5 * Staff
I stay here weekly on business and do a review every now and again. I have been staying since March and will continue for at least another 3 months. If this was not an excellent base I would not stay.
Whether you are on business or pleasure this Hotel is an ideal base for Bradford/Leeds or west yorkshire in general.
I must give the staff an extra special mention. I have travelled far and wide and stayed from 2* to 5* +, and have rarely encountered staff attitudes so helpful as Bradford Holiday Inn Express. 5* customer service well done and thanks.
On a more general note if you are thinking of staying with a child the rooms are large enough to accommodate the pull down bed with ample room to spare. Rooms are clean and free internet access is a bonus. I have no hesitation to recommend this hotel for either business or pleasure. \date of last stay 3rd June 13

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by GISVPN Overall not bad
I stay a week here. It was tricky to find from the road but managed to work out how to park and get to the hotel. The room was very basic and I was surprised to find out there isnt a restaurant! But there are some local fast food restaurants opposite which was convenient. Car parking was a few pounds each night and close to the hotel. Staff were nice.
