Holiday Inn Express Bradford City Centre
Ranked #7 of 27 Hotels in Bradford
Reviewed 8 July 2012

I have stayed here before about 8 years ago, for a gig at Rios. This time for a gig at The Gasworks. The hotel entrance is in the middle of a Leisure Complex, which has a car park you can use for £3 if you're staying in the hotel, which is good vaalue. It's a short walk from the car park but it was well signed. It's also quite close to Bradford Interchange for thise wanting to use public transport. The room was spacious and clean. Breakfast was fine, not a full English but plenty of choice.My only complaint was the lack of air conditioning, would have been OK if we could keep the window open, but the traffic noise was too loud!
I paid an advance rate of £35 for a double room including breakfast. Great value for the money and we got 24 hours free Wi-Fi too!

I took ages to find the entrance to the hotel!! You can see it but you can't get in!! Very frustrating. You have to park in a separate public car park and walk through the shopping centre to Reception!! You CANNOT access Reception by car. Which is a BIG down when you have to cart bags etc from the car!!When I asked about Disabled guests I just got a blank look! This is big drawback as the hotel is central to the city.
When I asked for a Banana at breakfast I was told they do n't do bananas in Bradford !!!!!! Why when every other HIE in the land does them I do n't know????
Would not stay again because of the car parking.

Room Tip: Do not go if you have a car!!

Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel.

As with the pervious review below i will go and check the signage as we have not ahd comments before about the car park being difficult to find.

Once in the carpark if you park on the fourth floor you can walk right out onto the pedestrianised Plaza then it is a short walk past the bowling alley to the hotel. Due to the design of the complex, cars are not allowed up to the entrance , but this does enable familes to walk safely around the complex.
Should we have any guests who require assistance then this is given by our staff members.

We do various fruits as part of our free breakfast and like many Express hotels do not do Bananas, If we got a lot of feedback that this is what our guests wanted then a review would happen.

I am sorry that the carpark issue would effect your decision to stay with us again despite it being very good value for money to park overnight compared with others located near diofferent hotels

Kind regards

Bit of a strange to do finding the place once parked up in a nearby overnight pay and display - use the office car park at weekends rather than the multii-storey and save a few bob. Once in there, all ok. We were a family of four in the room and managed to get by with the sofa-bed pulled out - which wasn't very comfortable apparently. Rest of room fine apart from the broken double-glazed window which had lost its ability to keep the traffic noise out so it could have been quiter. Breakfast in the morning was pretty good as it was included in the room rate if a bit manic - too many people and too few staff to cope. Even the moans in this review couldn't stop it being very good value stay for the four of us.

I will be checking to see if any signage for the leisure Exchange Carpark has been removed ,as there were numerous ones on every approach to it.

The breakfast can get busy on occasions if guest do come all at once, we do have extra seating avaliable in our conference rooms at these times and extend the breakfast buffett as this is were most of the congestion occurs.

Stayed here as we were going to st georges hall to see Michael McIntyre. Had a nightmare getting into the car park as was not well signed how to get in. (had no email confirmation which would normally include details like this)
Ideally located in an entertainment complex with pizza hut, nandos,bowling and cinema. Also was straight road to st georges hall 5 min walk away.
Room was ok. Was clean apart from the bogey on the wall next to the bed.Tv was rubbish though! Was as far from the bed as they could put it and was about 12 inch tv which also kept cutting out and had no tv guide on it so had to refer to my iPhone app to find out what was on.
Was not enough coffee and milk ect but was given more when we asked.
Bathroom was good with shower big enough for 2 which was a bonus.
Bed uncomfy with not enough pillows as they were quite flat too.
Breakfast the next day was ok considering it's included in room rate but I would have preferred to pay a bit more for better breakfast. The hot options were scrambled egg,sausages and beans. My OH was still hungry.
Car park on way out was a joke as was the attendant. Turns out reception hadn't knocked any money off the car park fee and then the attendant told me I would have to walk round the corner of the car park to the other pay machine as the one there was broken (wonder if he would have said the same if it was dark and I was alone-I'm female)
Would stay again but purely for price and location

Dear Claire

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us.

I am sorry that your whole stay did not meet with your expectations and i will be raising the issues you faced in the carpark with the Leisure Exchange Manager who controls this area. Once a ticket is stamped at reception then this gives the guest a discounted rate at the pay Machine.
The Breakfast with the hot items is the current Holiday Inn Express Brand Standard which is reviewed at IHG with regards to the offering , any comments we receive are passed onto them.

Kind regards

Friendly and helpful staff. Clean and well presented room. Adequate breakfast. One of the two lifts was out of order throughout our visit but the hotel was fine for an overnight stay. Great value for money. Plenty of parking. Free wi-fi was a nice addition.

Very friendly and helpful staff, room excellent, breakfast very good. Ideal place to explore Bradford and its surrounding area. Only 50 mins from York, so price here with train fare makes it excellent value as trains to York are very frequent.

Dear Stanley Barks

Thank you for your comments on your stay with us, I will pass these onto the team.

The hotel is indeed ideally placed just a short walk from Bradford Interchange that does make it an alternative to staying in York that can be exspensive at peak times.

We look forward to welcoming you back to us again for a break.
