It's location is perfect and the last minute price for the room with breakfast was excellent. The bathroom has obvious areas which need attention and bedroom furniture is scratched. If a manager or cleaner has passed through this room and ignored these things then what does it say about their standard of quality? The vegetarian breakfast had items which were...

Visited this hotel for afternoon tea after booking a group of friends in for the 2 for £20 offer. We were shown to our table and given the 'tea' menu to choose from but at least 3 were unavailable unfortunately. We were served with a selection of cakes and pastries initially which made us wonder if sandwiches were actually included....

My husband and I have just got home from the Restaurant at this hotel. And feel totally satisfied with the lovely meal we've just had. Firstly the waiter Ryan was friendly and welcoming, makes such a difference to your night when your 'special'. We were given some lovely bread while we waited for our starters and that was good and...

What was supposed to be a birthday treat was a complete let down. Drab surroundings that was in need of a good housekeeper and the floor in the Ladies was so deep in water, Adam Peaty himself could have done a few lengths. Mediocre sandwich selection and stale cakes, Definitely wont be going back.

My husband and I got married at the Cathedral Quarter Hotel last month. The main reason we chose the Cathedral Quarter was because of its central location and the fact that it is in a gorgeous building with a fantastic staircase. I think it's only right that I'm honest in this review - at first, it wasn't plain sailing. We...

I have just checked in for an overnight stay. I will not be doing so again. What is it with hotels in this country, it is supposed to be a 4 star hotel with an amazing restaurant. I arrived to be told there is only bar food and the offering on the bar menu is pretty poor. I ordered a...

Hotel of last resort. Atmosphere of the Titanic, but different music. "Nights in White Satin " blaring out at breakfast, in a room with no wifi. Unless you have a liking for flock wallpaper and out of place modern light fittings (in what was once a lovely wood panelled room) or like tiny rooms with Ikea like furniture all chipped...

Please accept my apologies that our music and wallpaper didn't match your personal taste. Please note that the owner has gone to great length and expense in furnishing the hotel when we opened in 2008. Certain rooms are due a upgrade, but this will not be done, neither has it ever been, with flat pack or cheap furniture. We are...

Very memorable occasion but for all the wrong reasons. There were only 20 of us at my nephews sons christening. Firstly we had to ask for extra tables as we were squashed but the staff were really good about this. They bought the continental breakfast out which had pancakes, yoghurt in a bowl, cheese and fruit. However we only had...

Lynne, I am disappointed that we didn't meet your expectations with our champagne breakfast. The sideplate was for your toast/continental breakfast. Yoghurts come in individual little pots for which you were provided a spoon. Thank you for the comment on the sugar pinchers. I will look into that one. Our full English breakfast is in my view quit extensive with...

My husband and I have just had a delicious three course Sunday lunch here.

The hotel is beautiful and had a lovely atmosphere with easy listening music. Just right for a quiet Sunday afternoon without any children. It food...
