My partner and I stayed in Room 8 at the Bail House for just one night and had been much encouraged by all the positive reviews it had received. It wasn't a cheap option but we were still expected to pay £5 for the privilege of parking 'on site', so to speak. Breakfast was also not included, and the property... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback about your visit. The room was given as a complimentary upgrade from the Standard Twin Room which you booked online to a Superior Twin Room so I am disappointed you were not satisfied with your stay. We find our room prices very competitive for a stay in the Bailgate area of Lincoln. On... More

This is a nice little hotel, not far from the cathedral and the historic centre of Lincoln. Bedroom was as described on the website. Warm welcome from the staff, even though we were comparatively late arriving. Excellent cooked breakfast, served in the tapas restaurant next door. Nice looking garden at the back, comfortable lounge with honesty bar, games and books... More

A lovely building in a perfect location. We had a comfy bed in a large room with dressing table, chair, sofa, wardrobe and chest of drawers.The bathroom was a good size, with complimentary toiletries and dressing gowns, which was nice. It was clean but a little dated. The accomodation has a lovely large lounge with tea and coffee making facilities... More

Having carefully planned a romantic weekend with my wife I arrived at Bail House with great expectations after the reviews I saw. I had previously ordered a bottle of chilled proseco to greet us. It wasn't there... When it did arrive it was a warm bottle in a bucket of water with two ice cubes. The room which cost me... More

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and the hotel is beautiful throughout. Our room was surprisingly big and the bed was very comfortable. We knew when we booked we would have to share a bathroom but this wasn't a problem. We loved the location as well, and it's very close to lots of great restaurants- spoilt for choice! The... More

Dear Guest, The staff at the hotel would like to thank you for all of your lovely comments about our service and the hotel. Our car park does have limited spaces and on busy weekends this does fill up particularly quickly. I am glad you found alternative car parking and, as you experienced, this is not far at all from...

We stayed in the feature room with the incredible showing of wooden beams. Amazing room and great service from the staff made it a great experience. Set in a beautiful area with plenty of places to eat and drink and of course, right next to the glorious Cathedral. 5 out of 5 easily

We booked into the Bail House 2 bed cottage at very short notice over the Christmas period to allow us to visit family. We found the Bail House to be excellent value for money and very good accommodation - very central location and very friendly staff. We would book and stay again when we next all come over to visit... More

I visited Lincoln for the night, 20 years after living there. The Bail House & Mews is in a perfect location in the heart of old Lincoln - a stone's throw from the Cathedral and Castle, Steep Hill and some great pubs and shops. The twin room I stayed in was spotless and full of character and the staff were... More

The location of this hotel is great. The staff are friendly and downstairs bar/lounge area is lovely.

The hotel has a lovely location in the cathedral quarter and goes for an old world feel. If you want something quaint and cosy it's great, if you want mod cons/convenience it is less good. Having to use two different fiddly combination locks to get in and out was a bit of a pain, especially as no 24 hour reception... More
