Bradford is well known for being a city that combines the grandeur of Victorian architecture with chic modern minimalism. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the Great Victoria Hotel. This city centre hotel embraces its lavish interior with pride, from the single room’s ensuites through to the Avenue Bar, each space feels designed to make you feel like staying here is decadence.

Glamour and style, with a prime city centre location

The rooms range from standard singles with spacious ensuites, to the palatial penthouse, which boasts two luxury bathtubs and a super king sized bed. There is a room perfect for all occasions.

In The Avenue bar and restaurant you can enjoy a range of classic and signature cocktails while surrounded by plush leather seating and high ceilings. The restaurant offers everything from light bites to a hearty full dining experience, all prepared with seasonal and locally sourced ingredients. They offer a pre-theatre special from just £12.50, a great way to make the most of an evening out in Bradford.

Just in front of the hotel is St. Georges Hall, an equally exuberant building that attracts big names to play intimate shows. With Centenary Square also just across the road, the hotel’s location is perfect for a weekend getaway. There are plenty of museums to visit in the day and concerts to entertain you in the evening, it puts you in the heart of the action, giving you more time to explore Bradford.

The hotel is also an excellent spot for afternoon tea. Enjoy luxurious cocktail sandwiches, freshly made scones and an assortment of tartlets and treats alongside fresh tea or coffee. There is also the option to enjoy afternoon tea with bottomless Prosecco, should you feel inclined.
