Our restaurant is not always available to diners on weekends due to private functions. It is advisable to telephone to check availability. Bordering Bradford, just off the M62, BEST WESTERN Bradford Guide Post Hotel is a great place to rest your head after stretching your legs across wider Yorkshire! Close to Leeds, Huddersfield and Halifax, you'll have your pick of moors, museums and high streets to explore! The hotel has 42 ensuite bedrooms that are designed for the ultimate relaxation on your return, and our restaurant and bar serve up sumptious dishes from a wide variety of menus. For even more special occasions, our 3 fully air conditioned function rooms are fab. Comfort and convenience are priorities here, so the hotel has disabled access including a disabled toilet, and disabled bedroom. You can tap into free WiFi access too, available throughout the hotel!

    « Very average & noisy »

    We stayed here for a couple of nights recently for a wedding . We didn't opt for breakfast and had room only . The room (no 34) was a decent size and clean . We found it warm enough once we'd turned the heater up , staff are friendly too . The only downside is the lack of sleep we got due to the poorly sound proofed rooms ! We were kept up late by people in the neighbouring room laughing and their tv ! Then woken early in the morning by others in the corridor outside . The wedding itself was ok but meal very average and no better than most wetherspoons ! And we were horrified at the amount the wedding couple had paid for such a very plain meal you could have got anywhere else for about 12 quid ! Not the most exciting place to stay and probably wouldn't recommend to anyone else . Sorry !

    « cold room with no heating »

    I arrived in the early evening. Reception was professional. My room was a good size. The bathroom was excellent (clean, bright and modern) Coffee and tea facilities with biscuits. Good selection of channels on the TV The weather was cold and snowy/rain When I arrived the room was pleasantly warm. At 10pm the heating went off. I rang reception to be told that it was on a timer and was off 10 - 5. By 11pm the room was freezing cold. There was no inroom thermostat. I put towels from the bathroom on op of the bed to get some more heat. When quizzed the next morning the guy at reception just smiled and said there was nothing he could do. The next night was even colder. I left my shirt on in bed! By the way I don't recommend breakfast. Not good value at 9 pounds. There's an excellent cafe just up the road.

    « did the job well »

    I had a meeting in Bradford and needed a hotel where i could get a late check out as my wife would remain until i returned. Originally I was quoted a cost for the late check whereas when I did check out (two hours late) the charge was not applied. Thanks. On the rooms, we were first given room 7 but this was next to the storage room and noisy so were moved to number 19 where the bed was smaller (but comfortable) and the room quieter. Very clean room and bathroom was well decorated. Heating could have done with being switched on before 1800 bit otherwise ok. Reception was pleasant checking in and out. Breakfast was basic but as needed. Overall a good room for the price.

    « Pleasantly suprised »

    Stayed here for a couple of nights whilst attending a course for work. There were about 18 of us in total, so quite a large group to cater for in one go. They managed very well though, highly organised and we all received our meals at the same time and all hot! We have stayed in several hotels (of 4 and 5 star quality) around the country as a group and this was by far the best. I have several allergies and having mentioned it on the first evening they prepared a 3 course menu for me to choose from for each meal. All of which were superb and prepared with care and attention to ensure I had a meal to the standard of everyone else's and at the same time. The rooms had everything you'd need and were very clean. The bed was comfy. If I had a complaint it's just that you could hear the people in the rooms either side. Thank you for a great experience!

    « Wedding »

    We had our wedding here on Saturday and the staff were lovely and very well organised that our day went without any problems. Sue is brilliant and kept things running throughout the morning And Laura who continued the day was very professional and again couldn't fault anything. We stayed in suite room 44 and it was beautiful. Abit of a walk but the room was clean and the bed was so comfortable. The breakfast in the morning was lovely and cooked fresh. Would definitely recommend for any couple who are looking for a venue. Superb service. 5* from us.

    « Lunch with friend »

    Went with a friend for lunch and was not disappointed 2 courses for 10.95 the portions were ample sized and delicious i had the pate then chicken and chorizo pie which was so good and piping hot, my friend also had the pate then salmon which she said wad also lovely.. followed by coffee the service was excellent. It had recently been decorated and looks really good. It is definitely worth a visit I would recommend to all my friends.

    « Very nice »

    I attended a wedding here and I have to say this is a very nice place ! Very clean and modern plenty car parking also we got a good rate for the room we stayed in and the room (no42) was fantastic very spacious and comfortable ! We booked breakfast which was very nice with a lot choice to eat ! Only complaint was the bar which ran out of draught lagers very early on ! Surely when you have a large wedding party on in the afternoon through to midnight this should be a simple task to make sure you have plenty barrels ! Also £3.60 a pint was a little expensive! So apart from that a very enjoyable night!

    Staff in the eating and bar are superb - they honestly couldn't do more and look happy are really helpful - some rooms are below expectation, others great - location is challenged - but the attitude of the staff and hence the service is great.

    « Strictly average »

    Stayed four nights from Friday 7/10/16. Check in (and subsequent check out ) a doddle. Very efficient, friendly reception. Room, number 40, small with a view of a brick wall 2 metres away from the window. Heating good and easily adjusted for comfort. Bathroom small but adequate. Unfortunately, baths side is quite high so anyone short,elderly or disabled will struggle to get in and out of the bath/shower and there is no handrail for assistance. Hotel very busy with weddings which meant we were unable to use the bar. Had to stand at side door and wait like schoolchildren to be served and sit in reception area to drink. This was not mentioned at check in. Breakfast was fairly good with hot food, fruit, cereals, and continental options available. Orders for hot food taken and served by friendly efficient waiting staff.

    « Very Convenient »

    Located very close to my work place. Clean. Plenty of room. The hotel appears to be busy with "working" people. Car parking outside was only a problem on one occasion. Food was nice, disappointing that condiments come in "tear off" sachets. Check in and check out very easy.

    « Buttershaw School Diamond Jubilee Gala »

    The small group organising the event sought a venue for this prestigious occasion. Several places were visited but the Guide Post offered the best best facilities for the budget. An excellent room rate was given for the guests. The event was booked a year in advance and to the event day the hotel gave excellent service with the planning of the buffet and table arrangements. Sue the General Manager was a joy to work with. On the day and evening of the event on 24th September 2016 Laura gave us our full attention in helping us set up the tables, balloons, banners and all the other essential bits. Due to Laura's diligence the evening event went off in splendid fashion. The buffet was superb. Chief guests the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress were very impressed. In fact everyone there was. Well done and thank you staff at Guide Post.

    « Not a nice place to go »

    My family and I went to this place for a wedding when we got there the party was down stairs in the basement there is no disable access to down stairs and when I complained that my mother in law was disabled one member of staff said if she can't get down you will have to go home the stairs are steep so we had to carry her down one old lady fell down the stairs and had to be rushed to hospital it's not a good hotel and the staff are rude I would not recommend this hotel to anyone

    « Very nice hotel shame about the off duty staff »

    We stopped here for 1 night as it is close to Bradford for the Alhambra. Very modern inside clean and giving an old apperance outside. Rooms very nice and the bar and reception areas very nice. The breakfast was cooked as ordered which means the food was hot and a good selection of buffet cold food on offer. The only down side were the off duty staff. We were in the upstairs bar when all you could hear were the loud converstations of the staff and swearing and private staff matters which the paying public shouldn't have to hear and i think at least one of them had had too much to drink. It's a shame that this was heard as apart drom this the stay was excellent.

    « Helpful friendly staff »

    Stayed here for a couple of nights on the 9th Aug. The hotel is basic and in need of a little tlc. The carpark is quite small holding about 15 cars. There is plenty of street parking however. The rooms themselves have a double and single bed, which were comfortable. There is a tv, iron,trouser press, tea/coffee making facilities, bath with shower. Check in and out went swiftly. All the staff were pleasant and helpful. We had a couple of meals in the bar and the homemade burger with chips was the nicest I've had in a good few years. The public areas were clean and tidy. The public toilets were spotless and had a lovely fresh fragrance. However the hand drier didn't work in the gents. The hotel provided all we needen and would stay again .

    Excellent Hotel very clean and staff were wonderful. We ate there for dinner, and breakfast everything was very good. Would definitely recommend this hotel. We took a chance with making this booking as we were on our way to a wedding in Shipley, and it was on route to our destination the next morning. No trouble finding it.

    « Groupon afternoon tea »

    Quite a strange location on a main road near an industrial estate. A few parking spaces at the front and then on street parking. Independently owned and run business. Large spacious reception where we were directed to the bar. We were seated near the window (only 2 other ladies in). Gorgeous decor with purple flowers and serviettes on each table. Extremely clean and tidy with a friendly lady server. Requested cheese and tomato sandwiches for me which was no problem. Got 3 fingers plus 3 of tuna and 3 ham salad all in delicious bread. Caramel slice, bake well slice and scone each with jam, cream and some kind of fruit purée all served in little pots on a 3 tier slate. Excellent food and service in a beautiful hotel. Super main menu as well with a loyalty card scheme where the sixth meal is free. Ignore the odd location and try it as its excellent.

    « Excellent Hotel »

    The staff here make this hotel and you feel friendly. Although the hotel is out of Bradford and on a part industrial centre and part housing estate the great nights sleep you get is great as there is hardly any noise plus the double glazing takes away the remainder. I woke each day very refreshed. Breakfast good choice and the evening meal was home cooked food which was worth the wait. This hotel has 13 ground floor rooms which is worth knowing as this hotel has no lift. There is also a ramp to the front door if you cannot manage steps. I recommend this hotel for anyone visiting this area with great links to the M62 (5mins) and the same from the centre of Bradford.

    « Good table service. »

    We went with some friends for dinner and it was a delight to find the restaurant was air conditioned! Food was fine but very average and the ice creams two of us had were tasteless. The house red is probably best avoided. However our waitress was fantastic and very helpful. Would go again, especially in a heatwave but definitely overpriced for the "tea" it was.

    « Christening Celebration »

    We attended a christening today at this venue, It was perfect for the occasion, the room was a good size, with dance floor and small bar but more than adequate. the service was very good , efficient , polite and well mannered bar staff kept on top of the job all day . The best part about this event was it was my nephews babys christening and they have been very careful with there overheads so did the catering themselves and did a fantastic job of it , I think it is really usefull to note that the hotel lets guests do there own catering arrangments and the room costs only £100 from 1pm till 8pm on a sunday . The venue was also very well decorated and of a really good standard with ample car parking spaces over the road as well .

    « Anniversary Celebrations »

    Visited and stayed at this hotel in June 2016. Upon arrival we were able to park at the front of the hotel. If full additional parking is just over the road. Booking in was quick and efficiently carried out and we were soon in our room on the 1st floor. Accessed by stairs no lift to these 1st floor bedrooms. Room clean, tidy and kitted out with the usual hotel attire. Bed was extremely comfortable with plenty of pillows. We attended a function in the evening in the Spa Bar and bar staff were very good. Breakfast on the following morning was excellent with a good choice of drinks, cereals and full English breakfast. Staff again excellent and efficient. Wouldn't say it's set in a lovely location as industrial units are opposite but a great base for us and the usual standard you would expect from a Best Western Hotel.

    « dissapointing »

    Room was okay ,but lots of noise outside from wedding party. We paid for a room for 2 people but only had toiletries and cup and tea/coffee/milk for one person. told reception and were given 1 cup and one spoon! so had to share shampoo and soap. Sounds a small complaint but annoying not to be able to make ourselves a morning coffee.

    « Basic Hotel »

    I stayed here for two nights midweek as part of a stay with work. The hotel is basic and in my opinion not to the usual class of the Best Western brand (I have stayed in a few, and even got married in one!). The hotel is basic, without lifts to the upper floor. The rooms are spacious with decent amenities, and a good sized LCD TV on the wall. It was hot during our stay and the lack of air conditioning or fans in the room made it feel very stuffy and uncomfortable. The bar is reasonably priced for a hotel, £3.60 for a pint of strongbow. The restaurant had some lovely waitresses very attentive and polite serving, very different to the impression from the bar staff. The restaurant food was standard, although none of our group of 16 rated the starters as any good, and at breakfast the sausages are a must leave alone. That being said breakfast was cooked fresh for you and there was enough choice to totally avoid the sausage and be satisfied - you have been warned! The hotel has about 5 parking spaces at the front of the hotel, with optional spaces on the road directly opposite and a bigger car park further across the road. Overall the hotel was fair, it didn't rock my world and the service was average but i slept okay and that was the purpose. Any questions feel free to inbox me.

    Unfortunately the resident DJ ruined our night by not listening to his brief from us about music to play. We were promised they would not use him again. This is not what we saw the other day when he ruined another couples wedding day. Awful!!!!

    « Check events on your date »

    Before you stay at this hotel be sure to ask what, if any, events might be on the nights that you intend to stay. While the hotel and room facilities are quite reasonable, if there is an event on you have little chance of getting any sleep before at least 1am. I was called by reception over four hours before I arrived to check if I still intended to stay as they were turning away guests. It might have been nice for them to inform me at that time that there would be a wedding reception on until the early hours of the morning in the function room across the corridor from my allocated room. If they were so desperate for empty rooms they could have given me the chance to opt-out of a sleepless night and inflict it on some other unsuspecting victim. I would have shifted my stay to the Day's Inn a couple of miles away. This is the second Best Western hotel I've stayed in. It will be the last unless I have no other option.

    « It is what it is »

    From the outside the building could do with a touch up here and there and parking can be awkward buy your not sleeping outside. Booked at short notice (very very very short) and yet on arrival staff had all the paperwork out ready and sorted which made check in easy and I was soon in my spacious room. Comfortable and clean and what you would expect from a Best Western. Food was OK but staff seemed to be doing 101 different roles but when serving where delightful.

    « Bronte Country Stay »

    My wife and I chose to return to Bronte Country, after a 3 day visit in the early New Year. We stayed at another Hotel then, but chose the Guide Post this time. A quirky Hotel, and as usually expected from a Best Western. The bed was very comfortable; we'd like to return, but will make sure we book in at an earlier time, to aim for the upgrade!! It was out of our hands for us arriving late. We won't do so again.

    Greeted at reception with a smile and a polite young lady, better still our room was ready early for a surprising early check in (just the ticket after a 3 hour drive ). The room was spotless with good décor and a tray full of tea/coffee etc.All staff that we came into contact with were pleasant and courteous, we took advantage of room service for snacks and breakfast in bed..not only was it spot on time but piping hot, plentiful and well presented...well worth the £4 service surcharge. We had a lovely Easter Weekend in a very pleasant hotel in Bradford. Will definitely book again.

    « A good place to rest your head »

    I booked this hotel as it was within minutes walk from the office that I was attending for training. The hotel is located within the middle of an industrial estate which is perfect for the business traveler as it is noisy during the day when you are out but very quiet a night when you return. The hotel appearance itself is okay if a bit dated, but inside it is clean an pleasant and almost a family feel as you check-in. Check-in itself was swift and pain free although they could have mentioned that the restaurant closes at 9pm so be careful to those business travelers arriving late. Note this closing time also extends to room service so you could be left a little hungry if you leave it too late. The rooms were quite spacious and acceptably decorated but the double beds were not particularly comfortable and far too short. If you are over 6ft your feet will dangle over the ends. The food in the bar areas were just ok if a little bit overpriced for what you get but perfectly acceptable if you don't want to venture out. On the 2nd night of my stay I did venture out to Akbar's Indian restaurant, which is about a mile away from the hotel and had probably the best curry I have ever eaten. Well worth a short cab ride. The breakfast in the morning was excellent with cooked food done freshly to order. In addition there is unlimited coffee, tea, juices, pastries and cereals available on buffet style but unless you are on a diet go for the cooked!!!! Very satisfied with my stay and will stay again on future business trips to the area.

    « Decent value hotel but mattress was like a huge slinky »

    Stayed here on business recently and really can't complain for £56/night. Couldn't get parked in the full cosy car park so parked on the road just outside and was looking forward to a deep sleep after a red eye start / heavy day . Or so I thought. I have been a memory foam convert for a good few years though so I wasn't quite prepared for the most metallic springy mattress I have ever tried to sleep on. Room was bit dated but clean and adequate. Had evening meal in the restaurant (mind your step), took the chicken fajitas, neither great nor unpleasant but the food prices did seem a tad ambitious. Waitress was really pleasant and professional. I had 2x mini boxes of special K (in one bowl!) and a cup of tea for breakfast the next day. £9 flat fee. Steep. Company were paying though. Phew.

    « Nice room but the rest average »

    Check in was quick and painless. Had to ask to add breakfast onto the booking (£9). Had a double room that included a small double and a single bed. Room was spacious with a desk, tea/coffee facilities, large flat wall mounted TV and an ironing board/iron. Bathroom was nicely decorated with bath and shower over. When I entered the room it was very warm and had to turn the radiator off and open the windows. There is no air conditioning. Hotel seemed very quiet when I stayed (no parties etc.), although it was mid-week. Bar area is pleasant, although prices seem very steep (£5 for a pint of Guinness out of a can!). Restaurant is nice enough if a little lacking in character. Menu had a good selection and food was ok. Bar service and restaurant service was generally good, although bar staff were new and had trouble with booking drinks to the room using the till. There is some parking on the front of the hotel (about 9 spaces plus handicap spaces) and the remaining parking is across the road from the hotel. Breakfast consisted of the usual choice of cereals, fruit and pastries plus a menu of cooked items including full English, kippers etc... Tea and coffee was available from 'urns' (didn't have either so don't know what they were like). WIFI is free inside the hotel and seemed ok for speed.

    « PETS ARE WELCOME »

    This was our 2nd attempt to make a reservation having been told to cancel our booking at the Chevin End Guest House in Ilkley as we had 2 dogs. We booked 2 rooms for 2 nights for 2 adults and 2 dogs and then phoned up the following day to confirm everything was fine which it was. The hotel as a whole was very clean, the rooms were comfortable and the staff were all very helpful and friendly, varied choice for breakfast which was very enjoyable and the evening meal was also of a high standard. All the staff were very accommodating towards the dogs, Irish Setters, and put no restrictions on them at all. Only slight criticism was the lack of parking available but it would certainly not deter us from staying again so would definitely recommend this hotel.

    « Overnight stay »

    Very friendly and helpful staff who are particularly attentive in reception. If you book breakfast tell them when you arrive/book as it is cheaper for a cooked breakfast that way(£9:00p). Breakfast was plentiful and served promptly - I had scrambled egg with smoked salmon. Tea was fine for me but weak. Coffee for husband fine. We also had dinner as it was reasonably priced but the issue was the waiting time. It took an hour and a quarter for us to be served with and eat starter (taco chips with salsa -not very arduous) and the main meal. We are not slow eaters! For this reason we did not take a dessert. The food was hot and plentiful but the neighbouring table of 5 had to wait ages for all people to be served, so I imagine that the first 3 had lukewarm meals until food for the other 2 arrived. I felt this was a shame as the waitress was very helpful and was clearly doing her best, the restaurant was beautifully set out with a waiting area in the adjacent bar. Finally there were a range of books in the restaurant which were very interesting because they were so old (I found a 1936 map of the area in London in which I live!), largely encyclopaedias and reference books, but some novels by Alistair Maclean too. - It certainly wiles away the time if you are not in a hurry!

    « Disappointing »

    I went in a party of 7 for breakfast on New Years Eve. The service was slow, the white bread was moldy (it was replaced), some of the continental breakfast items were a bit 'tired', the cooked breakfast was good and there was plenty of tea and (weak) coffee. It was a bit disappointing and we won't be returning anytime soon. The place itself is bright and airy, and clean. The staff weren't very attentive at all unfortunately.

    « Small and friendly »

    Stayed here for 4 nights for a family party that we had in the lower function room. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, the bedrooms are very pleasant and the breakfast superb. Didnt use the restaurant in the evenings as prefer the curry houses and local eateries. (Family lived in Bradford before we all moved to Spain). The only down side is the price of drinks at the bar, rather expensive. Taking all into consideration a great place to stay.

    Fine room. Pleasant and helpful staff. Good food....but, as stated by another reviewer, check before you book about parties downstairs or you will be up till 1 am with the noise. Our radiator shook with the vibrations. Shame as everything else was ok. Check out the Royal. Great pub food near by.

    « Shoddy hotel »

    Had to be moved first nights due to our room being next to the function room and the music being very very loud finally moved to a freezing cold room where there is no heat in between the hours of 11amand 5 PM unable to use the bar or restaurants due to there being a private function and creaky floorboards in room and mattresses seen better days you could feel the springs in your back and the bed was Lopsided In serious need of a re-Ferb Will not be staying there ever again

    « pleasant venue. »

    There were a dozen of us for a pre booked private function.Also in thè same room was another larger group.There was a pleasant atmosphere and the room was nicely decorated for the Christmas period.In an adjacent larger room was another large function in progress so I imagine the kitchen staff must have been really busy. However, the young waiting staff did a good job.We had three courses consisting of various starters and then the vegetables for the main course were served from platters. Everything was nice and hot and nicely cooked.We had a nice selection of sweets followed by coffee and a mini mince pie. Of course there were complaints about various issues such as the service was slow for some and some didn't like the way some things were cooked but you can't please everyone all of the time.All in all it was a good meal and the young waiters coped very well.

    « A pleasant surprse »

    My wife and I stayed here for two nights as part of a coach party. The hotel was really nice and the staff couldn't be more helpful, the room was fine and the bathroom was really first class. When we first saw the dining room we were surprised to see the tables were set with Christmas crackers and party favours and we thought that wont be for the coach party but we were wrong the staff had gone that extra mile to make us welcome , not like some hotels that treat coach parties as second class clients. The food was good with a good choice and even turkey and Christmas pudding,a really nice touch All in all a nice hotel good food and a special mention to the young serving staff who couldn't be better and to whom nothing was too much trouble Ian and Lil

    « Very pleasant indeed... »

    I stayed here for one night and really enjoyed the experience at this lovely hotel. The hotel staff were all really good and always dealt with customers to a high standard. I had a double room which was clean, spacious and very comfortable. A good nights sleep was had. I had an evening meal in the restaurant/bar and thoroughly enjoyed the Cajun Chicken. Again the staff worked hard and the service was great. I will stay again if I'm up in the area. Great value...

    « Poor hotel with confused staff »

    Stayed here October 2015. Paid just under £60 for 1 night for 2 people (breakfast not included). On check in we found the room very basic, very small, with a small and uncomfortable bed with a mattress which was extremely thin. We asked to move rooms. On 2 occasions we were told that we couldn't move rooms because the hotel was fully booked out. We offered to pay an upgrade for a better room but were told that there were no other rooms available in the hotel. After being in the room around one hour we started to smell a strange odour coming from the bathroom drains - a cross between sewage and vomit. We complained and this was investigated over a period of around an hour. We were happy to receive a refund and go else where but we were relocated to another room (in an already fully booked hotel...?!) Where they found this room is beyond me, as we had already asked 3 times to be moved and were told it wasn't possible - either several hotel staff were lying or we were put in another guests room - leaving them to endure the smell... Our room location was much better, a nice sizable bed and much better décor (by passing the dirty toilet that was left to greet us) Our night wasn't great as we were situated around a busy area with guests talking and banging doors until the early hours but this is something the hotel cannot really control. We checked out early the next morning. I did complain to the hotel directly but we had a standard response from the manager saying they were sorry and that the staff weren't lying - but we still never got an explanation to how a room can magically appear... As we have close family living in the area staying in a nearby hotel is a common occurrence for us and we now know for next time to stick with a Premier Inn rather than a unsatisfactory, dated and lying(?) hotel.

    « Fairly average, with friendly staff not totally compensating for small rooms and terrible internet »

    Stayed at a couple of Best Westerns recently, and this one did feel more solid. On arrival though, walked down a cold corridor past the dining room, down to a room which had a tiny single bed, a desk and not too much else. If anyone had tried to make it feel less like a cell then they had failed! It was warm though, and the bed was comfy ? not too soft. The staff are friendly but some of the services frustrate. I didn't try eating there in the evening, but cooked food in the morning seemed like a big challenge ? even though the dining room was near empty, it took 10-15 minutes to have two poached eggs on toast (one morning after 15 minutes I had to give up waiting and head to work). The biggest frustration for me was that, as with the other Best Westerns, the offer of free wifi was a false one ? it was free, but on all 3 devices it was one bar at most, and lost connection every minute or so. Perhaps not a big deal, but staying there for work and not being able to connect to anything is really a big inconvenience. I will stay here again, but hopefully they can sort out some better wifi coverage of their rooms, and I'll be sure to try to get a better room than whatever I had this time.

    « Lovely for a small wedding! »

    Stayed for one night for a wedding taking place at the hotel. Rooms were lovely and comfortable although a little bit too hot (it was mild for October). Staff were very good and attentive. Food was excellent. The Poppy room for the service was lovely and very well set out and was ideal for the size of the party. Bar was a little small but there was extra seating in the foyer/reception area. Would definitely recommend!

    « a reunion dinner »

    we did not stay overnight , just had dinner in one of the spacious function rooms. Staff were attentive , sadly some of the food was poor . Choice from a set menu , £24. The pate was tasteless and bland , three folk sent it back as unacceptable , sadly nothing else was offered neither was there an apology or bill reduction .we had requested a bread roll with the pate , this caused quite a stir as a bread roll apparently is not served with the 2 quarter slices of toast ! The beef was very tender, salmon nicely cooked ;well cooked vegetables served by staff .Lemon tart was drizzled with a sweet mango coulis ? why ?Custard was requested for the sticky toffee pudding , one cheese and biscuits sent back due to mould on the red cheese . Could not describe it as good value for money . No thank you , never again .

    The hotel is clean and comfortable. It is situated in a strange position near an industrial estate. However just 500 yards away is a lovely village with a good pub. The Hotel is comfortable and clean and the staff are helpful and friendly. Breakfast was good. We had an evening meal one night which was o.k. The menu didn't change whilst we were there. However its good value for money.

    « Oh Dear...... »

    Having worked a 10 hour shift that finished at 7pm then home to change, a bite to eat and then what turned out to be a torturous 2.5 hour car journey along the M6 and M62 to this hotel. We arrived at little after 10pm. All we wanted was a to have a drink in the bar and retire to our room to get a peaceful nights sleep before leaving in the morning refreshed before attending a Christening locally. Tired and weary we entered the hotel. No cheery welcome, just a young lady who really didn't want to be there on a Saturday night and was really hoping her shift would finish very soon. Had the hotel had their way peace and quiet would not have been on the cards until after 12.30am when the Engagement Party in the function room was due to end. The receptionist did apologise in advance that there may well be some disturbance. OK we can live with a dull bass thud but they attempted to put us in a room that was less than 15 feet away from the open function room with a very loud disco. As we got to the room door, after running the curtain of cigarette smoke, there was no way this was going to be acceptable. We returned through the curtain of cigarette smoke to reception and made our feelings known that that room was unacceptable. With a huff and a puff she vigorously clicked the computer and finally came up with a room. The room was spacious with a flat screen TV, 2 single beds pushed together to form a super king size bed all covered with set of bedding. The bathroom was exceptionally clean and very well maintained. Most importantly it was acceptably quiet. We popped back downstairs for a drink in the bar. Served quickly but drink prices are high. £6.60 for a John Smiths and a pint of Draught Pepsi. Whilst we drank a new bar person arrived. He attempted to pull a pint of Fosters but the barrel had run dry but rather than go and change the barrel admitted to a guest that he didn't know how to do it and would need to get the duty manager to change it. For a purported higher class of hotel employing people to work a bar without basic skills of serving and cellar procedures is unacceptable. it would have taken less than 2 minutes to do instead of the 8 it took due to the bar person having to phone to get someone to do it. We retired to our room for peaceful nights sleep and awoke refreshed and after having a refreshingly hot shower departed for our day of celebration.

    I stayed here on business for a few nights and had a very comfortable casual enjoyable stay. Convenient for Bradford, good rooms, nicely kept and good breakfast but some of the corridors were a little overheated. There a few parking spaces in hotel grounds else there's a free car park across the road. A short walk takes you to Harold Park which is lovely in the mornings.

    « Spot on location for further travels and good standard of facilities »

    Stayed here for two nights. Travelled here from Gateshead for business in Bradford on Tuesday. Went to watch football on Tuesday evening in Preston then stay at this hotel again before driving to Immingham on Wednesday. Managed to do all this from the hotel's location. Indicates the great links it has. Staff were very welcoming. Breakfast was good. Not the best selection if you don't want a cooked breakfast and not great value either if this is the case. Room was lovely. Bed very comfortable.

    Had our wedding reception at the hotel the staff were all brilliant the day and evening buffet's were both excellent and the room we were given for staying over night was really nice the manager sue was really helpful and stayed until the small hours of the morning to make sure everything ran smoothly. I have to apologise for one of my guests who gave her a hard time for a really trivial matter and was offered a more than necessary resolution to his complaint but still moaning about it. My opinion is he's a professional moaner. But my wife and I were more Than happy thank you. So were most of our guests we've had a lot of people on social media saying they had a great day

    The room was nice, spacious, bathroom was clean and airy. No lift in the hotel so taking suitcases up quite a lot of stairs was a bit of a pain. Staff were friendly and one member of staff helped take our suitcase up.

    « Convenient, friendly and comfortable »

    This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel. The fact I returned indicates I was happy with my previous stay. This time, I found it spot on. I was travelling for business, so after a long day, appreciate a speedy check in. This is exactly what I got. Not only that but I was expected, my name recognised by the receptionist who was clearly on the ball - all very efficient and friendly. I had a large, comfortable, well furnished room. Good TV, dressing table and separate desk - and a lovely bed. The bed was a good size and SO comfortable - and (this is where many hotels fall down) - the pillows were also excellent. Huge bathroom (which was spotless), with really good shower. This really was a very comfortable stay. Good free Wi-Fi reception in the room and throughout the hotel too. Meals are served in the bar or restaurant (same menu - choice of setting). More than ample choice of meals, at a competitive price. Meal was quickly served and was really tasty. The staff were really working hard - and again very friendly. Young waiter (Matt?) seemed to do everything from greeting customers, serving at the bar, taking orders, serving meals - doing all this and to a high standard. Breakfast served in the restaurant was really a very good standard. Choice of continental fare...and then a cooked breakfast menu. The full English breakfast was excellently cooked and piping hot. Very tasty indeed. The hotel is conveniently located for M62, M606 and Bradford. small car park immediately in front of hotel - and a huge car park immediately opposite. If you want a countryside hotel with wonderful views you don't stay here. If you want excellent value, convenient location, comfortable rooms, good food and friendly welcoming staff, then you should stay here.
