“Nice hotel”
Reviewed 2 June 2012

We stayed here for two nights.Very happy with everything, accept our window in room 101 was painted shut.We did ask for this to be rectified as it was in the middle of our heat wave! This was not rectified, so we had to buy a fan to help with the red hot room.They have had refurbishments, but attention to detail on finishing was poor.For ex tiles on onsuite floor cut ragged around toilet and left, also tiling to walls big gaps left at reaching ceiling.But plus side is its very clean, lovely ironed clean bedding and comfy bed.We were very happy with breakfast plenty of.Buffet and full cooked.Staff very friendly and helpful.Would stay here again.

Room Tip: Room 101 does not have a window that opens also no hanging rail in the wardrobe.

We had a 2 night stay at the Cartwright Hotel. Although it is on a corner of a very busy road, directly opposite is the beautiful Lister park. Rooms were recently refurbished and so were very clean. The staff were very cheerful and helpful especially Tanya who was kept busy with reception, serving at the bar and waiting on tables.
The Full English breakfast was very good ,compliments to the chef and service was very quick.
The only down side was it was very hot in the room, even with the window open fully all night. It was unusually hot temperatures over the days we were there so i imagine this would normally not be a problem.
Would definately go again.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front very noisy with trafic -lots of ambulances and police cars with sirens .

We have just come home from spending two nights at the Cartwright hotel. We had a lovely big room with a comfy bed,nice bathroom . The only downside was the wardrobe had no hanging rail and the window would not open to let fresh air in.
Our major concern was at night that the fire doors where wedged open and there were no fire evacuation instuctions to be found which we are sure would go against fire regulations.
Staff were very friendly and couldnt do enough for you, the first night we had our meal at the Lister hotel again was well looked after and the food was lovely and plentiful. Breakfast at the Cartwright were lovely,lots of choice, everything hot as it should be we will most likely return again if we are in the area.

Have just spent two nights at the Cartwright using discount voucher. Location is ok but a bit noisy at night. Room was lovely and clean. Bedding and bed were great- meant a good nights sleep which is so important. But nowhere to hang clothes- not even a drawer. Was told at reception that wardrobes were on order !
Breakfast was fine- plenty of it, served hot. Obliged with my request to take meal to the room for my partner.
Lounge/bar area has a bit of a dated feel about it - not helped on the day we arrived by the three locals who had clearly spent the best part of the day there and needed to go home! No decent beers on sale which is very disappointing for Yorkshire!
Was just a bit worried by all the doors wedged open on the landings- not sure that would meet with fire regulations?
Clearly the management are trying hard to refresh this hotel and it shows. Don't think we would stay there again but that's because we felt we have exhausted the local area. Others should not be worried about booking- but remember you get what you pay for (which may or may not include wardrobes!).

Room Tip: try to get one away from the road and with a wardrobe.

Myself and my fiancee checked in which took all of 2 minutes,we were told what breakfast times were and then given our key and we went off to our room which was very clean,and had a lovely comfy bed which is always a bonus,we decided to eat at The Lister Hotel where we were not rushed to choose our meal,the meal was delicious and although the restaurant was busy we didnt have to wait ages between courses,after our meal we went back to the Cartwright and had a couple of drinks and then went to bed,in the morning I had a full english and my fiancee had a bacon sandwich,which was all cooked very nicely,the staff at both hotels were fantastic and nothing was to much trouble,we are due to come back to bradford in a couple of months and will be staying here again,keep up the good work.

We booked this up as a wowvoucher discount break and had heard many negative things about Bradford but we had a brilliant stay, the room was lovely and clean newly decorated nice comfy bed and big tv.The rooms were very basic and i had read on earlier reviews that the rooms had no coat hangers so i went prepared with my own only to find out there was no pole in the wardrobe so you could not hang your clothes up anyway.the windows in the room did not open so if you are like me and you like a window open at night then i would not recommend staying here as nightime the rooms were stuffy. There was no information book in the room and we were told nothing on arrival regarding room service and breakfast times so we got cheap taxi and ate out around Bradford, we found the local taxi drivers very polite and helpful.Apart from the negative we made the most of our weekend stay and would recommend visiting York as we had a lovely day out.
