“A lovely view!”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

We enjoyed the lovely view over Bradford City( the room has a large window!), the location, which is just 5 minutes away from the station and bus stop and the city centre. The staff was very kind and friendly and breakfast was plenty and good. Excellent coffee! They do the cleaning every day and change the towels too many times. A very pleasant stay!
We didn't like the TV. It must be changed. It's old and small and it has few channels. For example, no music channel! Some channels are with a tax!! The soap recipients in the bathroom difficult to use. The wash basin one splashed me all the time! I prefered using my own soap. I know breakfast is English, but I stayed in the hotel 6 nights and I ate sausages, eggs and beans every morning( tasty, but the same). Little changes might be done. Some tomatoes would be lovely, a various way of cooking eggs( not just scrambled ones), bacon instead of sausages, etc. But little inconvenience, after all.

Very easy to find in the city centre, situated in a nice corner with the cinema with a couple of restaurants close by. The train and bus station is only around a 2 minute walk down the road. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly, and the room nice and clean. Bathroom was again clean and tidy. Breakfast was very nice too - we would definitely stay here again. The only downsides were the mattress didn't give much support and we rolled in the middle which wasn't great and the TV was a tiny portable one .
Overall an excellent stay and very good value for money.

On business last week and stayed here again,everything was as you would expect from an IHG hotel,friendly staff and clean comfortable rooms.

Chris on the front desk was very helpful with a booking error,and Hamed at the desk was the same,thank you both.

Why no bacon at breakfast?

Excellent nights sleep, good clean room, even though shower not brilliant - seems this is just in a few rooms.

Located on hill but nice stroll down to centre and St. Georges Hall, an Alhambra Theatre.

Despite being close to the city centre, this hotel is remarkably easy to find
Parking is in the adjoining multi storey carpark, which one has to pay for, but the price is discounted for residents
Have since returned, and have found the staff to be most helpful on both occasions, and will stay again
Only negative is that there are a limited number of places to eat within walking distance

Needed a hotel in Bradford at short notice - chose the HIEx Bradford for convenience and location - and a great price.

Nice welcome, even though we were really late, an unexpected room upgrade on top floor: surprisingly large floor space, nice bathroom with large walk in shower and all perfectly clean. Could hear the road noise a little but nothing intrusive.

Nipped down to bar for a nightcap and a snack - again excellent service and we were offered an alternative, free of charge side dish, as the kitchen had run out of something we ordered. Hollie was the bar person and she was a delight - very friendly and customer focused.

Unfortunately we had the worst mattress in the world on our bed: too soft, no support, lumpy and it had that annoying thing where you rolled together in the middle every time you moved. Not the best nights sleep.

Nice brekkie - simple, fresh, hit and plenty available.

On check out, we mentioned the mattress situation to the wonderful Hollie - who was now on reception duty (long shift!!!) and she was mortified.

She promptly removed the food and bar charges from our bill, to compensate us, and made notes to have the mattress looked at.

We were very impressed with Hollie - she is a credit to the HIEx Bradford - thank you Hollie, and the rest of your excellent team for doing a great job.

Will visit again.

Booked in for a night to visit the blues festival in hebden bridge. Once you have negotiated the car park and wandered the lovely steps of a car park in England is is through the exit and on the right. A bit confusing then the lift up to reception. After that everything was fine. Check in ok and the room was HIE standard. Clean and tidy. Shower had good pressure and the squeezy things worked. Breakfast was fine. The only downside was the noise. Ok for one night and the proximity to the train station was what sold it.
