Lovely house, lovely garden; Margaret and Gordon are very friendly and attentive hosts, and serve an excellent breakfast... What more can one say about a superlative bed and breakfast ? This is a not to be missed place to stay if you want a quiet comfortable location but very well placed for visiting the City of Lincoln and Lincolnshire countryside.... More

We stayed the weekend in the self contained annexe overlooking the garden which was very relaxing. Breakfast had plenty of choices and food was superb. Margaret and Gordon were the perfect hosts. Would highly recommend.

We only stayed here for one night whilst visiting relatives but it was a home from home. The owners are lovely friendly people who will do their best to accommodate your needs. We had a choice of rooms and opted for one overlooking the immaculate croquet lawn! We had a quiet and comfortable spotless room with ensuite bath. Breakfast was... More

We spent the weekend in Margaret & Gordon's snug quiet self contained annex at the rear of their home overlooking their well tended garden. Saxilby is very convenient for Lincoln. As well as a good sized bedroom, with a very comfortable bed, we had a lounge area to relax in, and of course there was an en suite shower &... More

Very private and comfortable with a seating area separate to the bedroom and shower room/toilet. Nice clean linen throughout. Very convivial hosts and knowledgeable. Breakfast was superb after a good quiet sleep-in. Would not hesitate to stay there again.

Firstly, apologies to Margaret and Gordon for such a tardy review. I meant to write straight away but got sidetracked. Secondly - I cannot overstate what a lovely experience it was staying two nights at this delightful B&B. I had the Garden Suite, which was fabulous, quiet, clean and warm. There's even a stable pantry with a fridge from which... More

We have stayed many times at this beautifully appointed B&B & Gordon & Margaret the owners have become real friends over the years. We always stay in the suite in the garden which is fully fenced so our dog is able to enjoy wandering around the grounds. The B&B is spotlessly clean & well thought out. Unlike some B&B's the...

Warm and welcoming, Gordon and Margaret run a faultless B&B. The Garden suite is comfortable and spacious.The breakfast with fresh fruit and Margaret's full English or fish cannot be beaten! Always a pleasure to stop there.
