My hiusband and I went for afternoon tea at this lovely, hidden away hotel. We used an Amazon local voucher for £15 for two. What a tea. Wonderful delection of cakes, two scones, varied sandwiches and lemon compote. The service was excellent, the surroundings beautiful. It was a great occasion and we can't wait to return! Prosecco is available with... More

I would describe my overall experience at the Cathedral quarter Hotel as positive. The outside & reception/entrance area of the Hotel are both beautiful - the marble staircase with the stained glass window are lovely. The reception staff I spoke to were very friendly & accommodating - I was allowed to check in to the room early as it had... More

business stay - nice room #25 - good bed and pillows, nice bathroom - not a great view but that wasn't an issue as I wasn't staying long enough - good deal at £69 b&b - Hotel has the makings of something really special but there is no atmosphere at all, the reception area is lovely with the grand staircase...

The cocktails here are the best in derby! Especially mojitos. I enjoy the plush surroundings and staff are really helpful. A friend had her birthday here the other month and we had a lovely time. We sat in the large foyer and watched the variety of cocktails being made.

Great location, beautiful staircase surrounded by astronomical and standard clocks, high classic ceilings in the breakfast area...and then you get to your room. I was on the third floor, and the problem was not the size of the room as others put (the room was small, by the way) but the elements on it. I mean, if you are going... More

My husband had enjoyed a stay here previously, so we were very much looking forward to a night at Cathedral Quarter Hotel last week. When we entered the hotel, the beautiful staircase topped by stained glass windows is so pretty, I could hardly wait to see our room. It was downhill from there. We were assigned room #7, which absolutely... More
