“Very sleep, sleepless night tho!”
Reviewed 6 February 2012

The etap Bradford is very cheap budget hotel. The price is good but it's pointless payin £25 if you can't get a wink of sleep.

Because its so cheap it's usually full of young lads and girls having screaming sex and smoking drugs.

The rooms themselves are not bad considering the price. It's just the people it attracts makes it very difficult to get a wink of sleep. The stairway usually stinks of cannabis which isn't pleasant.

It's just off canal road a major dual carriageway running through Bradford, it's hard to block the noise out.

The receptionist usually doesn't speak very good English so good luck

What a shame it cudv bin brilliant!

A great location since it is a 5 min walk in to Bradford Centre. It is a short walk to a great real ale pub The Corn Dolly and we always have a great curry at The Kashmir. If you need a comfortable cheap room for a short break it's fine.

Reviewed 27 November 2011

This was my second time staying in the hotel, so I knew what to expect. For a price of £25 I do think it's value for money, yes it is VERY basic in terms of space (not much distance between the bed and wall, also toilet is very cramped which can leave a bad smell). Also resources are very limited, the room has only ONE plug socket, only 7channels on tv (this I don't see as a bad thing as most other hotels charge you for the use of TV), also only 4 hangers which means if you're staying for 3nights or more you'd probably won't be able to hang all your clothes!

I think the shower was VERY good, nice temperature and very spacious (easily fits two people ;-) )

The only real complaint I have is that on the 2nd night, I was going out to collect some food there seemed to a rodent problem (yes a mouse/rat had somehow got into the building). I find this somewhat unacceptable and disgusting. Yes I was on the ground floor and yes Bradford does have a lot of Rats in city but I don't expect to find it in my hotel whatsoever.

I would stay at the hotel again just for the fact that its cheap, convenient (has a 24hour Tesco opposite) and it attends to my needs but I definitely will not be staying on the ground floor.

Future guests at the hotel need to be realistic in terns of their expectations, you are only paying £28 per night, what do youreally expect??

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights although the hotel is clean in all areas and the staff where friendly there are a lot of thing missing . We stayed in a triple room and where glad there was just 2 of us as it was small and cramped with 2 never mind 3. The bed is made of a board and a 2 inch bit of foam for a matress with one thin pillow for each person and no extra pillows available in the room if required. The toilet was like a small cupboard and was just enough room as was the shower which was seperate from the toilet but small too There is a modern tv in the room but although modern lacks channels ours only had 7 channels available to us bbc 1/2 itv channel 4and 5 one music channel and a french channel. There is also a lack of place to store your clothes 1 small rack on the wall with 4 coathangers no cupboard or drawers so we ended up having to keep clothes for 3 days in the case.There is no tea and coffee making facilities in the room . Although the rate of around £31 a night might seem" budget" at the time the lack of these facilities for the people with an average daily consumption of tea and coffee in 1 day can become expensive as you can buy cups of tea and coffee at £1.40 a time from reception, also if you need internet access wifi is not free you are charged £3 for 2 hours When you consider the other budget hotels who have can have nightly rates of between £19 and £29 a time and all these facilities are free then they are providing a much better deal .

We suffered a disturbed night because there was an influx of visiting families. They were continually visiting one another, knocking on doors [which creaked when opened] and talking.
A member of staffed entered our room at 5 o'clock in the morning in search of a noisy television not ours we were asleep!
An outside door was broken, leaving the building insecure where we were, the member of staff did not seem that bothered so we secured it as best we could, not ideal!
The accommodation was adequate and clean.
