“Spookey!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2005

This hotel is lost in a time warp! I was booked to spend two nights but checked out after one. It is old and worn (and looks it). I was told that it had been taken over by another chain and was being refurbished, about time. The rooms although clean are dated. The night I stopped there were 12 guest which gave it a very odd feeling. I did not feel safe and would worry if I was a single female guest. I was the only person in the room when I went for breakfast!! The staff are really friendly but they have little else to do. It seems that most people who stop in Bradford know about this hotel as I tried to get in the Hilton around the corner and found it full. On the 2nd night I moved to the Cedar Court about 2 miles from Bradford, much better.

Stayed 2 nights on business. It is an old hotel, a bit worn and creaky..but very comfortable in that way.
Very friendly staff.

Unfortunately the centre of Bradford is dreadful...

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2004

A splendid Victorian building, in the centre of Bradford. Bradford doesn't attract many visitors these days, and the hotel is distinctly worn-looking.

Although the hotel was virtually empty (I saw 3 other guests at breakfast), I was given a crap room overlooking the noisy bus station at the back of the hotel (perhaps because of being a single traveller). The room was clean but depressingly shabby. And the hotel tried to charge me for breakfast in the morning, although this was included in the room rate.

For anyone with a car, staying in one of the nearby villages (e.g. Haworth) would be a better bet. The Victoria would do at a pinch - but try for a room at the front of the hotel, overlooking the quiet square. Internet room rates (about 50 pounds ) are not too bad, but any more than this would be a rip-off.
