Excellent 3 night stay. Fascinating history of hotel with connection to Bomber Command connection. Fine food and service. Amazing hotel grounds and excellent parking. Hotel well situated to explore Lincoln and surrounding historic wartime aerodromes and associated museums. A visit to the nearby parrot sanctuary is also recommended.

So boring and worn out. Go somewhere else. All dated and dirty. There are much better places. Like being in a time warp. Frumpy. Inefficient. Carpet in guest toilets grubby and green. Wanted to charge to go into the antiques fair. Yes, to go into a shop!

Thank you for your review. You may be pleased to know that refurbishment work on the Petwood Suite toilet facilities begins this Sunday and we are looking forward to unveiling a lighter, brighter look more like our other guest toilet facilities. For clarity, the Woodland Suite last Sunday was hired to an Antiques Fair organiser and therefore the £2 entry... More

We planned a trip of Bomber County, culminating in me having a taxy ride in Just Jane at Lincoln Aviation Heritage Museum (another story). I have a keen interest in 617 squadron especially and what with the squadron's link with the hotel, it seemed like a no brainer to stay here. Lovely hotel, in beautiful grounds. The food was amazing,... More

Big airy room with views over the roof and the RAF flag fluttering in the breeze-loved the mock tudor frontage and all the old wood.Took husband as birthday treat. Meal was good but not exceptional but the hotel and grounds were lovely. Old twenties style statues in the water features were really photogenic.

A perfect setting for the 40's weekend, sitting on the terrace overlooking the extensive lawned gardens, in the very footsteps of many famous WW2 characters. The impressive period outfits of most guests and the excellently appropriate entertainment all added to the fabulous ambiance, ensuring a most memorable time for all those 'in the mood'. The hotel is ideally situated for... More

This was our fourth year at The Petwood, and I have reviewed this Hotel before. The Hotel was this year playing a full part in the event. Within the Hotel was food being served, and two bars "going full tilt" with many things going on in the grounds all day, and through the evening. A battle waged during the day... More

Stayed here for the 1940's weekend. It's somewhere my husband has always wanted to stay and it didn't disappoint. We stayed in the Beech 4poster room which was massive, clean and quiet. The bed was really comfy and the dual aspect room had lovely views over the immaculate gardens. Some of the furniture in the room is a little dated... More

Thank you so much for your review and constructive feedback. I am delighted that you and your husband enjoyed your stay, particularly the dual aspect of the lovely Beech suite.

This hotel has a great history and could so easily be an excellent venue but really really lets itself down by trying to take shortcuts. Hotel hosted flagship event of Woodhall's 1940s event and rather than provide an outstanding experience to showcase the hotel to the vast numbers of people attending instead the hotel chose to exploit the 1940s interest...

We made a late booking here for the Woodhall Spa 40`s weekend, although the only room available was a twin bedded room we were not disappointed, the hotel is set in lovely grounds and looks and feels far better than its 3* star rating. The staff were exceptionally helpful pleasant and professional, we both enjoyed perfectly cooked sirloin steak followed... More

The Petwood is a historic hotel, being the home of the Officer's Mess of 617 Squadron (the Dambusters) during the latter years of WW2 so we were really looking forward to our meal there. It was not a special occasion, but it was something that had to be done! On arrival we were met at reception by the constantly attentive... More
