We spent a weekend in Lincoln, a first visit. The hotel is right in the centre although on a fairly quiet road. Our room (on first floor) was above average size and very comfortable. Cleanliness was good and everything was of a good quality. We had a good view of the cathedral from our room.The reception staff were exceptional and... More

Lovely hotel in a wonderful location. Staff were very nice and helpful. Wonderful little communal area to sit and have a hot drink and relax. Breakfast was very nice. Only real complaints were the shower and the parking. The shower was poor and the bathroom could do with an overhaul. The parking is not great. Get there early so you... More

OK so the décor was tired, particularly in the en-suite, so if you want chain hotel uniformity, don't stay here. But if you want a terrific location right in the heart of Lincoln's old town, friendly staff, a comfortable bed and some nice touches like the honesty bar and the range of different teas to help yourself to, then this...

We shared a 2 roomed apartment with kitchen facilities. Great location. An honesty bar if you fancy a drink or snack. We disliked the shower as it was almost impossible to get the temperature right. Freezing to boiling in one slight move. No temperature control - just a tap to move side to side and up and down. Could actually... More

Good place to stay, at the top of the fine old town, not overloaded with tourists steep walk with panoramic views, past the Cathedral (what a building is there) and the castle .... Has good tapas too in the day and evening, to eat in or in a fine old walled garden.

My husband mother in law and I stayed and the staff were more than helpful. Nice to talk to, and able to advise us of things to see or current attraction, this is our 2nd stay here and highly rate it. One suggestion get your plumbing looked at some taps need some TLC, and drains slow to drain.
