Book into our Holiday Inn Express® Bradford hotels and explore one of the powerhouses of the Industrial Age. You'll be within easy walking distance of the National Media Museum, fanciful Victorian architecture and the elegant Centenary Square.
Recognized as the world's first City of Film by UNESCO in 2009, Bradford takes pride in its cinematic heritage at the National Media Museum, where you can read an autocue and play with audio mixers on a mock television-news set. Guests of our Bradford hotels can explore the city center, anchored by the Bradford City Hall and its magnificent Victorian clock tower. Enjoy the cafe vibe in the center's Centenary Square, where you can explore local galleries or just relax to the gentle rhythms of splashing fountains.
The city's local curry houses beckon with intense flavors and perfumed aromas. Home to a large Pakistani community, Bradford is famous across the country for its excellent, inexpensive curry houses, all minutes from our hotels in Bradford. Great Horton and the Leeds Road both have large concentrations of curry houses-just don't forget to bring along your own beer or wine. Venture farther afield from our Bradford hotels to explore the beautiful Yorkshire Dales just north of the city. This wild and hilly region has scenic trails for recreational walking and welcoming country pubs serving Yorkshire pudding and Yorkshire's famous bitter, a local pale ale.
Book a stay in our Holiday Inn Express hotels in Bradford to visit nearby Saltaire, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Victorian village built as a home for mill workers. Its fascinating Victorian mill buildings and houses tell the story of Bradford's past as one of the world's giants of textile manufacturing.

What's in a brand?
Quality of the brand continues to be dogged by inconsistent service and customer experience[Less]

great stay and good company
the manager went the extra mile for us and was very helpful in all aspects of our stay even took time out from a very busy schedule for a chat the staff and reception were spot on[Less]
I thoroughly enjoyed, what could have been a very sad journey. My daughter and I stayed in Barnsley to mark the first anniversary of my mothers death. I was scattering her ashes back in her town of[More] birth.
The wonderful experience of this hotel combined with the opportunity to use the facilities of the neighbouring gym made our stay delightful. The actual anniversary and scattering of her ashes was more of a celebration of her life and I am certain that this was partly due to the relaxing time we'd had prior to this event. Thank you and well done Holiday Inn Barnsley.[Less]
Good nights sleep
I liked the location being out of town and quiet and made getting a good uninterrupted sleep possible .The free easy parking was ideal and the historic location added interest .Good size room with[More] beverage making facilities was a nice touch .The breakfast was excellent with good quality hot and cold food in a no rush atmosphere .
The outside was a little spoiled by the abundance of cigarette butts left by some inconsiderate smokers .[Less]
A suprising Gem
