Hotels in Bradford

Carmel Smickersgill, Tours & Activities Editor

Take a trip to the picturesque and changeable landscape of Yorkshire, with Haworth and the Bronte’s moors in close proximity to the multicultural and vibrant cultural life of Bradford’s city centre, there’s plenty to see and do on a weekend getaway in the city. As with any short break the accommodation can be the shiny jewel or party ruiner, that’s why we’ve rounded up some of the best places to stay in Bradford.

If you’re looking for a luxury getaway that’s walking distance from theatres, galleries and museums, you can’t go wrong with the Great Victoria Hotel. This architecturally stunning house of decadence combines the grandeur of Victorian decor with the comfort of modern convenience. The Great Victoria is the kind of place where you can walk in after a late show finishing and grab a cocktail at the bar before heading up to a luxurious room. For those who prefer to escape the bustle of city centre life once they’ve finished their day, check out the Abbey Lodge Hotel. This warm and welcoming hotel in Shipley gives you the comfort and luxury of a city centre stay with the friendly Yorkshire welcome of one of Bradfords charming suburbs.

If you’re the kind of person who prefers to have their own space there are an excellent selection of short stay apartments to rent in the city centre. In response to the popularity to sites such as Air Bnb, we’ve become accustomed to being able to holiday in a “home from home”. We recommend Serenity Apartments, Aphrodite Suites and Fletcher Luxury Apartments. These spacious choices come fitted with modern and chic furnishings as well as those extra luxuries you wouldn’t get at home. They combine the comfort of being able to have your own kitchen and living space with perks such as jacuzzi baths and extensive entertainment systems.

These are just a few of the places to stay in Bradford when exploring the welcoming character and diverse culture the city has to offer.
