Unfortunately, this hotel does not live up to expectations. We stayed in one of the modern self-catering apartments situated in the courtyard to the rear of the hotel and can say that the standard we found certainly did not justify the room rate we paid. Check in was stated as between 3pm and 7pm - we later found out that... More

They have managed to maintain the character of the old building with a modernised interior. The room was generously proportioned with a well appointed bathroom. Good value for money. The breakfast was adequate.

Excellent in every respect. Accommodation as described. Twin beds at the top of the house were comfortable and the towels magnificent - even had bathrobes. Clean and organised. Superb location. Breakfast easily obtainable elsewhere for those on a tight budget.

This is a well placed hotel with lots of character and very helpful staff, the only slight negative is that some rooms share a bathroom, I don't mind going out to the bathroom but sharing is uncomfortable for many with modern expectations. I would recommend thoroughly reading room details before booking. There is a really nice feel about the place... More

This is a beautiful hotel located in the centre of Lincoln, situated on the edge of the Castle walls, and offers great access to it, and the Cathedral. We had a family room which was prepared for 3 kids, although they thought it was only 2, so they very quickly made up the third. Our bedroom was spacious and comfortable.... More

This is a lovely hotel, just a few steps away from Lincoln Cathedral. The receptionist was friendly and welcoming, taking us up to our room on the second floor - and yes, you could see the cathedral from the window! The room was comfortably if slightly shabbily furnished, with en-suite shower - but if you want the latest in modern... More
