It is a lovely hotel. In appearance it is stately and was good enough for Derby to host a lunch for The Queen a few years back. The room I had was small but cosy though it had no view. The bathroom was modern and quite tasteful even if the sink was a tad too bijou to shave or do... More

We decided to have a booze night in Derby, and stay over, and chose CQH. The rooms were small but no smaller than anything in London. Decor was nice and the quality of the room was high. A proper big key for the door as well..Would stay again!!

We didn't actually end up staying here. We checked in then a couple of hours later had to leave due to a family emergency, Staff were helpful and sorted out with the booking agent so we wouldn't be charged which was good of them. The hotel itself looked nice, rooms were nice albeit a bit small ( but I booked... More

There is limited parking; on street free from 20:00 - 08:00. The rooms are clean, well appointed but when I was there the air con was broken; too hot to sleep all the way through. The restaurant was wonderful, great breakfast with wonderful staff. The reception staff are great. The hallways need a attention!

This elegant Hotel is exceptionally comfortable and attractive for Sunday lunch. The lovely dining room is a pleasure to sit in with attractive decorations and period features. A nicely presented table with linen tablecloths. The staff are smart and attentive. The menu provides a wide choice to suit all tastes. Slightly disappointing was the prawn cocktail starter and the main... More

We went to the Opulence restaurant at the Cathedral Quarter Hotel and found the staff to be very attentive, the food was very good and we had a great time. I know that the venue has had some negative comments but we would recommend to friends and family to try it out. Would go again.

This establishment looks as though it might be sad and tired and confidence doesn't immediately come to you as you enter the ballroom like restaurant, tall ceilings, large open room and lacking in interest. But the food is really good here - we've been twice and the food has been good both times. The tablecloths are clean, the cutlery is... More

Staying at this place it proving to be quite problematic. Their booking system regularly loses bookings, checking in and out can take anything up to 15 minutes. They've been working hard to repair the air conditioning for over 2 months, but it still says it needs servicing; it rather gives the impression that they're trying to avoid spending any money...

Thank you for the constructive comments. Please note that we have introduced a new front office system to eleviate problems with the check in and check outs. So rather than being outdated, we now have a brand new system to work with. Air-conditioning affects a small number of bedrooms. Until this is fixed, please ask for a room with working... More
