Reviewed 7 January 2007

Stayed here Sat 6th Jan for one night. Booked online based on the reveiws I'd read on this site and wasn't disappointed! Found it quite easily (not knowing Bradford at all) and it was well lit up and signed so no probs there. Decent sized car park, straight into reception area to be greeted by Ryan (General Manager) behind the desk. He knew who we were (probably because it was fairly quiet that night) and check-in was dead easy. The room was outstanding - spacious, heated floor (although slightly patchy heat) plus an additional fan heater, LCD (or plasma - not sure which) TV on the wall, great decor, fantastic light fitting(!), small en suite bathroom with only a shower but a nice one nevertheless (excellent complimentary toiletries by the way!), HUGE leather sleigh-style bed - very comfy indeed!. Had a couple of beers in the bar (nicely decorated bar/restaurant area) and chatted to the friendly staff, admired the view of Lister Park out of the front bay window. Following morning up for brekkie at 9.30-ish (although we were told not to rush as they would serve us whenever - should've finished at 10am). Fantastic breakfast choice, settled on full English (fried bread AND black pudding - wow!!) and tasted every bit as good as it looked. Loads of juice, tea, etc. Nothing seemed too much trouble for the staff at all and really friendly. The ONLY downside to the whole experience was that we didn't bag one of the 2 rooms that had their own jacuzzis! Paid the very reasonable bill (£75 for double room, 2x brekkies, 2x Erdingers and a vodka and coke) and on our way. Will DEFINITELY stay there again - can't recommend it highly enough!

Whilst appreciating the effort that went into the decor of this hotel, the design is lacking functionality and quality in some areas. Here are some examples :-

- floors throughout the hotel are decked in probably quite expensive wood, including in the bedrooms. This proved to be a real nuisance whilst having a quiet drink in the bar or indeed trying to sleep with the noise of ladies' shoes. Perhaps asking staff to wear soft soled shoes would be a start. Not sure asking guests to take their shoes off in bedrooms would go down well
- good quality power showers have been fitted througout but with flimsy shower curtains resulting in a drenched bathroom. On one occasion the water actually came into the bedroom. I expect that this is the source of the flood stains on the ceiling in the bar
- there was no bin in the bathroom
- there was no heating in the bathroom! Indeed underfloor heating has been sparsely implemented throughout the bedrooms. I expect it will be cold in the winter
- food was OK. Nothing great
- breakfast tables lacked cutlerly and milk
- no full length mirrors in any of the bedrooms

All in all, nothing that can't be fixed with a little attention.

The rate was pretty good and it is probably still the best hotel around the area.

We spent two nights at the Lister Mansion hotel and were very impressed. The hotel is a boutique style hoteI with large bright contemporary styled rooms, the leather sleigh beds are extreamely comfortable and the large flat screen tv and molton brown products in the bathrooms add to the luxury feel. I must be one of the worlds fussiest people but the hotel manager and his staff could not have done more to ensure our stay was a pleasurable one.

The hotels restaurant is first class and the food served is of a superior quality with a menu on offer you would expect to find in a 5* hotel. We had a very relaxing break and would definately recommend this hotel to anybody who likes value for money and a top class service.
