Holiday Inn Express Bradford City Centre
Ranked #7 of 27 Hotels in Bradford
Reviewed 9 February 2009

This hotel was fantastic & excellent value for money, located a few minutes walk from the centre of the city. There are a variety of restaurants where the hotel is located & offer discounts to hotel residents, which I found a bonus.

The free breakfast was great and put me onto until lunchtime!

The staff couldn't do enough and were very friendly & helpful.

I will most definately be using this hotel in the future & highly recommend.

Located directly outside Bradford Interchange station in a cinema / fast food complex. Very much a budget hotel but I think £72 was way too expensive for this quality outside London. No soap or shampoo, just squeezy bottles on the wall. Bed & bathroom were OK, a hairdryer is provided. The shower leaks as there is no curtain. The breakfast is included and was no frills but adequate. A 5-10 minute bus ride from the football ground if that's your interest.

Easy to get to from Bradford Station once you realise it is next to the cinema and the restaurants. I was put in a disabled room and it was a bit bare and the wet shower room is a bit weird. The bed was really comfortable and I got a really good nights sleep. Breakfast is continental and again pretty basic. I had to ask for an ironing board and got to take it up to the room myself.

A good typical Holiday Inn Express. Clean, comfortable & helpful service. The usual complimentary breakfast which was fine. The hotel is very well located for Bradford Interchange rail station and also for restaurants (albeit 'chain' ones) as they are about 100 yds walk from the front door. I have stayed here before & would willingly do so again.

We needed to find a hotel at 1am in the morning and really would have taken anything so phoned express holiday inn. The chap i spoke to was friendly and accomodating and said they had rooms and reserved one last minute.

When we arrived he was very welcoming considering the hour. We checked in and found that the room was only kitted out (towels and pillows) for one. So phoned down to reception for a second set of towels and a spare pillow, again the chap on reception was very accomodating and sent the night porter straight up with the required items.

As for the room, like all holiday inns i have stayed in, the bed is comfortable and clean, the room spacious, bathroom very clean and tidy with a good shower.

Price wise very reasonable

All together very pleased with the room.

It's a Holiday Inn Express so everything is pretty much to the standard brand formula. I've stayed there for 3 or 4 days at a time for the last few weeks and I've found that there's a massive difference in the quality of some of the rooms.

The 1st floor is not good if you're at all sensitive to noise or the smell of smoke. The floor is a mezzanine (wooden) and there's a casino below. This equates to a lot of noise and in some rooms, the smell from the Casino smoking area filters through the floor so much that you can actually see it coming through the carpet. YUCK!

The 4th floor is very tatty with missing ceiling tiles and torn carpets. Some rooms seems to be 'last resort' rooms that only get used when the place is very busy.

Best bet is the 3rd floor. So far all the rooms on this floor have been quiet, clean and generally in good shape.

The included breakfast buffet is very good - plenty of choices (cereals, toasts, bread, fruit, drinks etc) and not often busy. The place is next to a 15 screen cinema and there's a Frankie & Bennys and a Nandos across the square. The Nandos is halal.

Staff have been helpful when I've asked to switch rooms and now they're used to me always staying in a room on the 3rd floor! Fast wi-fi is £30 for a week in the room and works pretty well - occasional dropouts but no worse than anywhere else I've stayed. It seems to be cheapest to book through the Holiday Inn website.
