“Friendly base for regular business travel”
Reviewed 18 December 2011

I have stayed many, many nights at the Holiday Inn Express in Bradford over the last two years, on business in the city. The staff are consistently friendly and helpful and although, as you would expect from what is a value chain, the amenities are basic, the location is good - right across the road from Bradford Interchange station and next to a choice of eateries. It's easy to work in the rooms, which is important for when I am travelling on business; you get a good night's sleep; and only occasionally bother from people or traffic outside. My one wish would be that they provide free wi-fi.

Booked online for a room including breakfast, £39. As the hotel is reasonably new the rooms are still 'as new' and very comfortable. The leisure exchange complex also has a casino next door and this is open until 6am for all you night owls. The entrance is free and the drink prices were very reasonable. The access to the hotel from the ground floor is via lift with the reception on the 2nd floor, your room key card allows entry after hours. The interchange railway station and bus terminal are only about 150 metres away.

We had not been to Bradford before but came upon this hotel as a 2 night deal as we wanted to visit the EUREKA science museum outside Bradford.. The hotel is situated in a complex right by a multi storey car park which is so convenient. The complex also had two restaurants, a bowling alley and a cinema. Our room was clean and spacious and good value for the money we paid on this deal, An added bonus was inclusive breakfasts and we were given a voucher entitling us to a three course meal at Frankie and Bennys which is right next to the hotel. The meal was excellent. Staff were pleasant and courteous. at the hotel and we will definately be returning, we had a lovely short break .

Room Tip: We chose a double room at the front of the complex which was ideal to get to the car park

I would to thank Dean and his staff for a great stay, made us feel welcome, all staff members were professional but extremely friendly. Nothing was ever too much for them, very approachable, the room was clean and quiet, but a fridge would have been handy because we stayed for so long but we enjoyed our stay.....thanks guys......

Room Tip: rooms near the life were easier to access for elder people, and were quieter..

This hotel is conveniently located for eating out or going to cinema right in the middle of a leisure complex! it is quiet enough, clean and bright ,however there is no air conditioning and the room gets very stuffy. We found the bed uncomfortable, quite hard. The breakfast was very disappointing as they seemed unable to cope with the numbers staying at the hotel, meaning they had no plates or cutlery, the hot food was tasteless and the best thing on the menu was croissants. Sorry to say it was of a poor standard.

I've stayed in this hotel with my family several times of the last couple of years and I have never been disappointed. For the price you pay for a room it is very good value. The rooms whilst fairly basic are very clean with good bedding. The free breakfast is also good with a selection of hot and cold food.
The location is also excellent very close to the centre of the city with lots a restaurants nearby in the leisure complex where the hotel is situated.

Room Tip: Ask for one on the upper floors

When we arrived I asked for two quiet rooms. Guess what - that is what I got!! Rooms clean and the bed was very good with nice sheets (white cotton duvet cover). All you need. The rooms are very plastic form fit hotel but thats what chains are like. Added bonus complimentary breakfast - not five star but adequate. TV small but adequate. Only downer - no free wifi (in 2011!!)

Room Tip: ask for a quiet room and you will get one.
