Great venue - had a lovely day

This is a beautiful venue, and the staff were friendly and accommodating. Only slight let downs were very slow response times to our emails, especially early in the booking process, and several administrative errors we had to correct that made planning just a bit more stressful! But everything was sorted by the big day and we had a fantastic time.

Poor service, poor experience

Broken facilities, service was poor, things were missing from our agreement, yet not only did they not correct any of these they kept our deposit. They're slow to respond, unapologetic and blame us for their errors like the A/C not working.

Well where do we start ! Outstanding!! The staff who served our food were amazing and so efficient I had one lady apologies I did not get her name but she poured my tea behind me and took every care not to spill anything on my dress and she was so lovely checking in on us to make sure everything was ok and if we needed anything.
You took so much care and detail for our day, nothing was too much trouble.
Your staff are a credit to you and your beautiful hotel.

“The team at the Mercure Bradford Bankfield Hotel couldn’t have been more helpful when arranging our rather unconventional short-ish notice wedding. From the start we knew we wanted to do something a bit different and Claire worked with us to create a bespoke package that catered for not only our quirky ceremony, but also for a large number of people with food allergies and intolerances. That wouldn’t have been possible without a flexible and open minded approach from the venue throughout the planning period (which was only a couple of months!) and then on the day itself. The food was absolutely amazing and plentiful – even for our guests with specific dietary requirements. We were able to arrange something that was unique, full of character and what many of our guests described as “the most memorable wedding” they’d ever attended.” Richard & Tori Murie

Beautiful and cosy venue

“Our wedding reception at the Bankfield was the best time of our lives that we can not stop thinking about!
Our wedding coordinator Claire was very friendly, attentive and nothing we asked her was too much trouble.
All the staff on the night were polite and made the evening perfect for us particularly our bar-man and DJ Mark.
The food provided was tasty and all our guests complimented it.
The Bankfield is such a beautiful and cosy venue which allows you to style your wedding to your suiting.
We only wish we could do it all again!
Thank you so much from Hayley & Jonathan Holdsworth”

Our Wedding

My wife and I have just celebrated getting married at the Bankfield and it was fantastic. The hotel reception staff were great, Sylvia who co-ordinated the day was brill and the food was superb.
The layout of the room where we conducted the ceremony was spot on and then the main ballroom was layed out perfect for the reception.

Thank you so much for making our day truly special.

Only gripe is that the drinks are way, way too expensive

December Wedding

We had our wedding at the Mercure Bankfield Hotel, To all the staff that help in setting out the hall, a big thank you - our deepest thanks to you all, we felt at ease and even with our last minute changes, nothing was a problem. You made us all feel warm and welcome. All our guests enjoyed the venue and had a great time. I would feel at ease to recommend the Bankfield to anybody wanting any type of function at the hotel as the staff are friendly and helpful. We will use the bankfield again and intend going to more functions that are put on there. A big thank you to you all
