Hotel and room 2 very nice, but the bathroom needs some serious TLC! Why don't these small hotels check their rooms out more often? This spoilt what should have been a very nice overnight stop, all for about £50 worth of DIY! Nevertheless, the hotel is a good one. The staff are friendly and very helpful. Would consider staying there... More

Our only issue with Bail House is that the main sign out front is over the exit door, not the entrance. Once we got past that minor hurdle we very pleasantly surprised by this hidden gem. Bail House is located just inside the old town wall and is walking distance to everywhere. Lincoln is a beautiful old town and we... More

Marvellous stay. We were surpised with how quiet it was with our room (2) being main street facing. The staff were helpful and polite. The bed was a magnificent wooden structure which suitably provided a sound nights sleep. The hotel was rustic in charming way and we thoroughly enjoyed. Would recommend to a friend.

This is my second visit here and this time I'm here for about five weeks. I love the quintessentially British quirkiness of this hotel, that old world cosy charm, the warm welcome, the helpfulness of the friendly and informative staff and the period feel of the comfortable and clean rooms. It's a far cry from the sterile corporate feel of... More

Stayed just one night. The room was clean and spacious, overlooking the road, but not noisy at night.Location was good, about 200 yards from the cathedral, surrounded by many restaurants an bars. Staff were excellent, nothing too much trouble. The honesty bar in the residents lounge was great, offering a selection of beers, wines, snacks and spirits at very reasonable... More

Seven of us stayed over a long weekend. The staff were amazingly helpful. The location is ideal for sightseeing in Lincoln. However, the front rooms overlooking the Bailgate have to contend with late night revellers at the Weekend. Pity really! Take your ear plugs! Phill

Booked two-bedroomed apartment for one night for a city break to celebrate my mum's birthday. First impressions of the main hotel were generally positive and staff pleasant but the apartment was really disappointing. Beds and bedroom furniture were adequate but the whole set-up was shabby and tired: curtain hanging off a rail, battered and uncomfortable sofa, kitchen taps broken, noisy... More

Beautiful rooms, very kind service, good breakfast in adjacent restaurant, relaxed atmosphere and perfectly friendly staff. Perfect for a short trip to Lincoln. The Lounge with drinks is fantastic! Definitely worth a stay.

Nice room with four poster bed and ensuite. Nice hotel settings. Great location. No complaints other than the hotel is not staffed after 9pm which we thought was a little odd. But overall a good comfortable stay for our weekend in lincoln.

Service was great, hotel has plenty of charm. I really enjoyed my stay here, close to everything in this cute little town. Staff were very friendly and quick to help. Easy access to the cathedral and castle. I will be back!
