We chose this small hotel as it was in such a wonderful location, being close to the historical centre of Lincoln. Sadly the hotel didn't live up to the description on the web site. Although the two staff members we met were polite, they weren't much help when we had to complain that the room had not been cleaned and... More

Clean and comfortable hotel. We had a lovely 2 night stay. Breakfast was beautiful. Situated in a nice area of Lincoln near the castle and cathedral. There is a very steep hill to get into the centre of town

Fantastic little hotel in a lovely area of Lincoln, The staff were very friendly and welcoming and we though it was great value for money. Would much rather stay in this lovely hotel than a faceless chain. Would definitely recommend.

This is by far the best hotel you will find in town. It's pretty well located, the castle and cathedral are just around the corner and it has lots of stores and restaurants close. The rooms are the loveliest and everything was impecable.

Excellent service and loved the communal areas and breakfast in the Tapas bar next door. Stayed in a mews apartment; basic but adequate. Couldn't regulate the heating - sweltered! Was 2 degrees outside though. Looked at one of the cottages where we will stay next time.

The staff were welcoming and friendly as they were in the Tapas bar where they have the excellent freshly prepared breakfast. The location is ideal and close to the main town.
