During a recent trip around the UK, we spent a night in Lincoln at Bail House. Based on our experience with the place and the staff, we very much recommend that you consider a stay there if you find yourself in Lincoln for some reason - a holiday visit, a wedding, whatever. The desk staffer we dealt with in making... More

Wow, what a beautiful place to stay. We parked round the back after ringing up for instructions as to how to find it. Both reception staff we had contact with were super-friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is an old house (clue is the name!), and some of the downstairs rooms are now being used communally for guests. e.g. the... More

It's a great home away from home when you're working away. The service has been brilliant and extremely flexible. The apartment has a television in every room, kitchen and living room. Free wi-fi.....need I say more!!

What an excellent bijoux boutique hotel. Reception staff were very helpful. The room was of an excellent standard and quirky. Secure private parking. Very very comfortable with en suit bathroom. It's position is excellent for sightseeing the historical Cathedral and Castle. They don't serve food, but there is plants of restaurants adjacent.

Lovely place to stay. Staff were lovely, very friendly, and the room was amazing. Great facilities, bath, shower, hair dryer, hair straighteners. Location was close to Lincoln centre, the cathedral and some great places to eat. Would definitely stay here again.

Great little hotel with character, a lovely lounge area where it was easy to meet other people, an honesty bar. We bedrooms with four poster beds and ensuite but they were lovely and roomy, although the ones on the upper floors were very hot. The ground floor room was fine. The only downside was the breakfast which was taken next... More

Good location, near the centre of the city. The room was OK, but one of the beds was lumpy. The room was on the top floor up a narrow flight of stairs (no lift). The staff were cheerful and friendly but had little knowledge of Lincoln and its attractions. There was a pleasant lounge area with complementary tea and coffee,... More

We chose Bail House Mews as it was close to the Cathedral quarter of Lincoln. We found the property to be clean and comfortable and the staff welcoming and helpful. The breakfast was delicious and we were particularly pleased to be able to leave our luggage with the staff whilst we explored the City. We would recommend Bail House Mews.

Perfect location to visit the cathedral and old city. The staff were very helpful and friendly and we had a good breakfast in the cafe next door (attached to hotel). Safe parking was excellent but have no idea if Wi-Fi worked or not.
