Stayed here in on a week day. Quiet rooms and clean. The breaks the was cooked to order and the variety not bad. Good on site parking and overflow parking across the road. Helpful staff. You know what you going to get with a best western.

We used a groupon voucher allowing a 2 course Sunday lunch for two with a glass of wine. We ordered a rose wine and exchanged the other for Coca Cola as driving. The offer was a choice of starter or dessert plus main course. We opted for the main of three meat roast and just turkey for the other meal. Came with large slices of meat, huge Yorkshire pud, stuffing and gravy plus a large dish each containing 3 roast potatoes, carrots, cauliflower and broccoli. The veg was a little too hard and needed a few minutes more on the boil. We were also offered a warm bread roll and butter each. The dessert menu was good and hubby chose sticky toffee pudding and ice cream whilst I got the cherry cheesecake to bring home. Great food, lovely decor, great ambience with superb music playing, excellent service. For the price on the main menu it is good but on a groupon price it can’t be faulted.

i stayed in a twin room 1 night with my daughter breakfast included. Reception team were very friendly and helpful on arrival. our room was lovely and clean. very large double bed and 1 single. Both beds were comfy i was worried it might be cold as it was January and weather wasnt nice, room was a nice temp. had tea and coffee and tv. hairdryer also. we was very happy with our room wish we had stayed 2 nights. as we stayed at another hotel previous night . The breakfast was nice help yourself to coffee and tea and juice. The hotel had no lift. when we arrived at breakfast no staff their to greet you or ask where we sit. we sat and waited for a staff member to come take our order was a few mins think he was on his own. but communication would help if he said morning with a smile be with you in a few mins . This was a sunday morning get him to smile and say morning enjoy your breakfast. I would stay again.

THis is a basic property in an industrial area, not a destination to stay in unless doing business in the immediate area. Comfortable , if tired rooms, with good attention to cleanliness. Polite and well meaning staff that are certainly in their set ways and not familiar with stepping outside of the "norm" if posed a question they haven't had before. Really good parking options and very comfortable and spacious restaurant. the food is good however short service times and not being an "all day" diner is certainly an issue as the location is isolated from any other services. would I stay here again ? Yes, if it was for a sleep only arriving late and leaving early, I may have breakfast again but would look elsewhere if needing to meet others or do any business on site.

Generally poor customer service followed by the worst steak and chips I’ve ever had. The restaurant waitress and the chef were obviously keen to finish their shift. £21 for this ? I didn’t leave a tip 👎

Had our Golden Wedding Party here on Saturday 27/01/2018. The evening was an enormous success enhanced by lovely bar staff especially Megan who was exceptionally helpful and a delightful young lady who seemed to enjoy the evening as much as us! The buffet was plentiful and enjoyed by all the guests - our complements to the chef and team in the kitchen! 11 of us stayed over and had breakfast together. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and what a great shower in the spotless bathroom! The Breakfast menu was varied - cooked to perfection and very tasty! Thank you to all the staff who were exemplary throughout - Japinder for the planning, reception for their cheerfulness and everyone else involved in making our Golden Wedding so successful. If all the Best Western Hotels are as good as The Guide Post, we look forward to our next breakaway at one of them!! Anne & Keith Denison

On Sunday 21st January we booked a golden wedding party for 11 people. It was ivy and snowing. No attempt to clear the car park, it was treacherous to walk up to the entrance. No meet and greet . No one asked to show us where to put coats of tell us when to go into restaurant. We had to ask for everything. The three course meal took over three hours to complete and coffee we had to ask for, no mints as advertised. In fact, the girl had to come back with coffee Which seemed to have been forgotten. There seemed to be a shortage of staff with two people having to do everything. Needless to say, I don,t think we will be returning.

Went to a private party held in the Poppy suite. Decent size, comfortably accommodated the 40 guests. Allowed the host to bring external caterers...suite has a dance floor and bar too...great time, had hired their own DJ....staff were great...special mention to the barman Mathew who was very helpful indeed

I recently stayed here for a couple of nights on a business trip. First impressions were good, although the hotel carpark is tiny and unless you’re there early you’ll end up parking on the road. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food was good too. However, the hotel does need some work. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable, but the furniture is very cheap with recognisable units from the budget end of Ikea and possibly the most flimsy wardrobe I’ve ever seen. I didn’t use the TV as my laptop screen was bigger and better quality. On the plus side, the hotel WiFi worked well. Overall, it was ok for a couple of nights, but for the price, I’d choose a Premier Inn over Guide Post every time.

I stayed at this hotel for 3 weeks during a training course. It’s one of the better ones in the area, although Bradford is not somewhere I’d ordinarily choose to visit. It was easy to get to and located at the end of the motorway. ACCOMMODATION • The Reception staff were great, very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble • My room on the first floor was adequate and had at some stage been “refurbished”. The room of a colleague of mine staying on a higher floor was quite poor and he was eventually moved on request. The rooms were clean. • The bathroom looked dated but the shower was wonderful and very strong • An iron and ironing board were in the room • Free Wi-fi was available and there was a lift • Unfortunately, I barely slept for two of the weeks I was there due to the other guests shouting in the corridors and generally being noisy in their rooms as well as outside. The room doors are quite heavy and continually bang. My colleagues had the same problem and it was an issue for all of us as we were revising for exams as well as trying to sleep. Some consideration needs to be given to better sound proofing FACILITIES • I chose this hotel because it had a swimming pool which I was intending to use but didn’t in the end • The hotel is very popular for wedding receptions and there were several very colourful weddings during my stay that brought extra guests to the hotel so it was very busy, particularly on Thursdays • The bar was popular and I had food there on a few occasions. Most of it was fine • There was a snack vending machine TIPS • There are two supermarkets within walking distance of the hotel in either direction and both have cafes. There is also a fast food restaurant • A garage is also nearby selling snacks as well as fuel • Beware of the standard of driving in Bradford, it’s scary! CONCLUSION If I had to go back to Bradford again, I’d prefer to stay at this hotel as it was better than the alternative in the area
