Marriott Hollins Hall Hotel & Country Club
Travel Blogs from Bradford
Last Sunday (March 25) we took a friend to visit her husband in the Captain Cook hospital in Middlesbrough - about a half hour drive from Guisborough. Since she planned to be there for a couple of hours, John thought it might be a good idea to visit the Captain Cook Birthplace Museum and Stewart Park which was right around the corner. What a …
So here is our super vague plan for the first few months of travel. The aim is to avoid air travel as much as possible!
7th November - fly into Bangkok, Thailand. Hang out for a few days in the city before spending a relaxing week on the beach near Koh Chang. Then back to Bangkok to hire a card and head north ...
Checked into our Uber Modern B&B in the old walled city of York. The friendly owner has gone all out in redecorating our room in a Japanese theme and electronics and buttons galore (press button shower, smart 3D TV, silent fridge etc). The old city has a myriad of narrow winding streets and 14th century houses and, of course Minster Cathedral, a sprawling example of a 13th century ...
... our conversations from the previous night, before wandering into the ruins of an abandoned Abbey. The ruins were yet another wonderful backdrop for picture taking.
Next to the ruins lies the York History Museum, which gives an overview of York's history from the dinosaurs to the Tudors. The museum featured a number of interesting artifacts, and is so far the best presented museum in York in my mind. The city of York was originally ...

I would reccomend visiting her 'handy stuff' page if you are considering a similar trip :) Also loving the Travelfish website for quick snapshots of each country including boarder crossings, visas, transport ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
We would recommend this hotel. There was a mix-up with our reservation and the front desk staff did a wonderful job making everything right. The food in the restaurant was delicious and the breakfast buffet left nothing to be desired!

Historical Traveler Reviews Marriott Hollins Hall Hotel & Country Club Bradford
Loved it! Great place for a romantic/relaxing getaway..
We have just returned from a weekend break at Hollins Hall - it was fantastic. The food was gorgeous and the staff were very friendly and incredibly helpful. I would definitely recommend this place as an ideal location for a romantic/relaxing getaway. Its worth every penny you spend!
Lovely facilities - Room not up to scrach
We stayed at hotel for bank holiday break. Facilities were excellent and breakfast was great. However, the room was not up to scrach. Reported faulty lighting in bathroom on arrival Saturday and it was still not fixed by departure Monday. Not very impressive for a chain such as Marriott. Also, lamps were dusty. Would have expected more. Would return again to hopefully better housekeeping
Nice hotel for a break
Stayed here in early August. Superb location for access to Harrogate etc. Nice and relaxed. Good breakfast. The staff, as with all the other Marriotts we stayed at, were superb - attentive, polite, helpful. More than happy and will be going back soon.
Rooms are a bit small for kids as well, but hey, we managed!
Great location - ideal for a get away
We stayed in early June when the UK had a "heatwave". Whilst the recepition areas was airconditoned the rooms were not. The rooms were very hot and stuffy.This did make sleeping difficult especially when the room overlooked the rear of the hotel and the noise from the disco in the Function Suite kept us awake until the early hours. The Hotel says that they will be dealing with "the ventilation issue".
The rooms were of average size and very comfortable and the Staff and decor were first rate as were the breakfasts.
All in all a great place to stay if you want to spoil yourself.
Will go back in the Autumn when not so hot !!
Had our wedding here & loved it!
We had our wedding reception here and we loved it. The staff were fantastic, the food was gorgeous and the rooms were really lovely too. We stayed in a Junior Suite and I can definately recommend it! All of our wedding guests commented on how beautiful the hotel was - the surroundings, etc. Everything was perfect and I just wanted anybody else who is considering getting married here to go ahead! Oh and not forgetting the amazing breakfast - fabulous!
My husband and I stayed at the Hollinshall for one night over the Bank Holiday weekend.
We stayed here for 2 nights, arriving on the Friday.
The room was spacious and very clean. The shower was fantastic. The breakfast was above average, hot and fresh and plenty of choice. The staff were very friendly. The leisure facilities were also excellent.
The only small grumbles that we had were that the mattresses and pillows were too soft for our taste. As other reviews have mentioned the directions given on the hotels website are misleading and hard to follow.
My wife and I would recommend this hotel.
Best Marriott I have stayed in.
I have stayed in a few Marriott Hotels in the UK, and this is easily the best.
The staff were very friendly and well trained. The restaurant food was excellent and very good value if you are on a DBB package. The dining room is very comfortable and well furnished.
The room was very nice but can get very hot and stuffy. There is no air-con but a fan is provided.
The golf course is superb and hiring a buggy is essential unless you are super-fit!
The location is great for a short break but do not rely on the directions printed on the Marriott website because we got lost following them around Bradford!
I will definitely stay here again.
A good hotel made great by the staff
We stayed here as a family for a short break in March. The room was clean and functional and the rate was excellent - family room and kids go free. Breakfast was good and fresh, and the leisure club is excellent - big 20m pool and jacuzzi and a very well equipped gym. The best thing was the staff, nott just polite and helpful, but friendly and anticipating our every need. Requests for extra towels were answered in 5 minutes; despite being busy the breakfast staff were keen to make the morning as pleasant as possible. Truly "better than american" service with Yorkshire friendliness and warmth!
Nice corporate hotel
Got a deal here in 2003, and was quite pleased. Marriott are a good chain and this is an ok hotel. Don't pay too much and you won't be disappointed.
