We picked the Bail house hotel for a one night stay in Lincoln, initially because it was cheaper than any of the " chain" establishments in the city, but we most definitely made the right choice. The reception staff were all extremely helpful and cheerful at all times and they were very accommodating in finding a safe place for our... More

Great location with the room & hotel living up to expectations. We stayed in the feature room (Room 5) which was comfortable though slightly space constrained due to all the historic beams. Very friendly & helpful staff. The lounge area was an added bonus, very rare I actually feel I want to actually sit in one but I did here... More

We stayed one night in the mews and it was perfect for our needs. The location couldnt be more central, almost spitting distance from the cathedral and surrounded by interesting little shops, castle walls etc etc. The set up is a bit quirky - but the mews itself was really stylish. You have to go to the Tapas Bar next... More

Had one night here while visiting Lincoln. Room was very clean and the decor very much in keeping with the area of the hotel. Very homely. The girl who greeted us was very friendly and professional. Her customer service was excellent. The breakfast was served in the restaurant next door and was also very good.
