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

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...
