Visited the restaurant, not the hotel. Long wait for the meal, pasta was not cooked enough and was lukewarm, but it was tasty. My friend has lemon and thyme chicken which had no taste but the sweet potato chips were fine. Very average meal

This was my first stay in Bradford for the purposes of a national archery competition. I didn't have too much trouble finding the hotel, but when I arrived, it reminded me of a 1970s local government office building from the outside. There was plenty of parking close to reception so that I didnt nave too much trouble carting my archery...

Stayed here with 5 other male friends after coming up from London for a football weekend. We went for two triple rooms and both rooms were clean and tidy and the guy who checked us in was extremely helpful and very friendly with it, considering we all turned up late in the evening. I had never stayed in Bradford before...

Stayed over Christmas (no room at the son's inn) for a second time. This is a really friendly hotel (for heaven's sake - it's Yorkshire! What else would it be!). Clean enormous rooms, comfy bed, smallish TV, Yorkshire Teabags, biscuits, use of gym, pool, steam room and sauna. Wow! Plus continental brekkie! Slightly old hat decor, and the wardrobe shelf...

The hotel is large but dated, the rooms although clean are very dated and the bedding was something to be desired for a hotel. The tv was far too small for the size of the room. The emergency night light was too bright and kept us awake. Breakfast was appalling, despite advertising a full English breakfast this was at an...

In life you generally get what you pay for. I needed a Hotel near a Training Centre as new to the area and relying on public transport. I had read the reviews and did not have any illusions. Yes the Hotel is tired. I had a room on the ground floor and should have asked for a first floor as...
