I stayed at this hotel in Lincoln, having walked past it many times, for a business trip back in January. It was everything I needed - good location, comfortable, well decorated. Then today I needed to get back to them to ask for a reprint of my invoice which has been mislaid and is required for tax purposes - I... More
