For a hotel which dubs itself the best in Lincoln - well, I really hope that isn't true. We arrived at about 6pm on Sunday evening after a long drive from London Heathrow and having located the street where the "hotel" is we couldn't find the front door! We had to phone to get instructions on how to get in.... More

Very special visit with a very special person. Loved every minute. A return visit that lived up to expectations. Only disappointment is that they don't do breakfast in bed now, which is something i personally think is a nice touch in a hotel.

Booked a "Luxury" en suite room with four poster bed back in September as a special surprise for my girlfriend. When we found the place it looked great from the outside, very quaint and it's in a super spot for a look around the Cathedral and nice little shops down steep hill. Unfortunately that's where the pleasantness must end. The... More

We really enjoyed staying here. We were upgraded to a spacious room with a lovely four poster bed, which we both found comfortable. The furniture was old and characterful which suited the old property. I agree with another reviewer that a bedside table on both sides would have been good. The bathroom was also spacious and had both a bath... More

This review is for Pemberton House not Bail House. This b&b (rooms no service) is managed by the same people as Bail House & Mews. Overall we liked it as it has such a good location, close to the cathedral and the building is steeped in history. Inside it looked a bit tired. The room is quirky has character and... More

Good location for exploring the top end of Lincoln, fantastic that hotel has parking, but we weren't aware before we checked in that this cost extra. Friendly staff at reception. Loved the decor and furnishings in the bedroom; bed super comfy, but only one bedside cabinet which was just annoying. Quite noisy spot though, people outside on the street til... More

From the main street, blink and you would miss this quirky period hotel. We found it quite funny that it is next to Ole', Ole' tapas restaurant which we ate at and reviewed on a previous visit and where breakfast is served! At the back of the hotel is a car park and we liked the fact that reception make... More

Hotel and room 2 very nice, but the bathroom needs some serious TLC! Why don't these small hotels check their rooms out more often? This spoilt what should have been a very nice overnight stop, all for about £50 worth of DIY! Nevertheless, the hotel is a good one. The staff are friendly and very helpful. Would consider staying there... More

Our only issue with Bail House is that the main sign out front is over the exit door, not the entrance. Once we got past that minor hurdle we very pleasantly surprised by this hidden gem. Bail House is located just inside the old town wall and is walking distance to everywhere. Lincoln is a beautiful old town and we... More

Marvellous stay. We were surpised with how quiet it was with our room (2) being main street facing. The staff were helpful and polite. The bed was a magnificent wooden structure which suitably provided a sound nights sleep. The hotel was rustic in charming way and we thoroughly enjoyed. Would recommend to a friend.
