This is a very characterful hotel, having been a police station and council offices before becoming a hotel, retaining many original features. Reception staff excellent, service in restaurant also very good. The room was spacious, bed comfortable. Food good. Only constructive comment is that the original parquet flooring was retained in the bedroom making the floor a bit uncomfortable, particularly... More

This hotel is just as advertised. Brilliant placement. Right in the city centre just down from the cathedral. Parking is a bit of a issue but they have a discount with the car park and 12 places them selves so we found a spot fine. The service was top notch greeted fab breakfast service was great and good was awesome.... More

A Group of 12 of us ate here only. None of us stayed over. And we were allocated the large and comfortable private dining room of the superb main Restaurant, free of extra charge. Moreover, on a busy Saturday night, a set Menu was offered to each diner : everso important in these days when vegetables and side-dishes are charged... More

This is a proper old school hotel. Elegant and stylish with charm and good service. I stay in Derby regularly and this hotel is my choice when the prices are low. Mostly their room prices are at the higher end for the area but they drop a lot if you book well in advance or if you stay during school... More

We recently booked the wedding suite (room 23) here as we were under the impression (expectation) that this was one of the premier hotels in Derby. We thought paying £179 for the night would mean a great room, great service and a suite which would be suitable to spend our wedding night i.e. relaxing, polished, clean and special. On first...

Good conversion of interesting building although the room a little cramped. Some areas felt that they needed a good clean and the cocktail bar although servicing decent cocktails felt a little disorganised. Only one egg for breakfast looks penny pinching!!

As we were having a night out in Derby with friends - we decided to take advantage of a good rate at the Cathedral Quarter Hotel and stopover. I have been to this hotel previously but as a wedding fayre exhibitor so it was nice to use the hotel as an actual hotel. I love the design and style of... More

Clean, tidy and VFM. The staff where friendly and competent. Great location. Lots of bars and restaurants in the area. Breakfast was ok, had better. The shower was excellent. Plenty of towels. The bed was a bit soft and had a tendency to move without much effort.

We stayed here last night and it was one of the worst nights I have ever spent. The only highlight was the well stocked bar where I could get a nice bombay sapphire. It goes downhill after there. 2 large gin and tonics cost £22. The room (room 11 is the one to avoid) was shabby tatty and small. Only... More

The hotel is a converted police station so has lots of quirks and character. The reception staff were all excellent as were the breakfast room staff. The breakfast is well done although limited so would get tired quickly if staying for any length of time. Location is excellent with interesting shops and pubs nearby. The rooms are a nice size...
