The Midland Hotel is a 90-bedroom three-star Victorian hotel in Bradford city centre, owned and managed by London-based Peel Hotels.

The architect was Charles Trubshaw, who was contracted to design many railway stations for Midland Railway Company.[1]

Construction of the hotel began in 1885 and took five years to complete.[2] It was built by the Midland Railway Company as part of the original Forster Square Railway Station, as a showpiece for the company's northern operations.

Following the "golden age of steam" the hotel fell into disrepair until it was bought by Bradford entrepreneur John Pennington in 1992,[3] who restored it and the hotel re-opened as the Pennington Midland Hotel in 1993.[4] It was sold to Peel Hotels in December 1998, who returned it back to its original name.[5]

During its life, the hotel has played host to many famous guests, including Sir Henry Irving, an English stage actor, who died there in 1905.[6]

The corner block of the hotel on Lower Kirkgate (pictured) was made a grade II listed building in 1983.[7]
