stayed here on Christmas Eve, the arrangements to ring ahead to be treated all went smoothly, David greeted us warmly showing us to our room (1) the four poster bed was comfortable but the pillows a little hard. The bathroom is well equipped but not the most luxurious. The benefit of this hotel is the location and the authentic setting,... More

Just spent 2 nights at this lovely hotel which is brilliantly located just round the corner from the cathedral and handy for plenty of good restaurants. The enthusiastic welcome was genuine and very friendly. After dropping bags I was given a quick tour of the hotel. My room was roomy and included spring water, plenty of teas and coffees, good...

We stayed in the mews at the rear of the hotel and had the top floor. It's very well equipped, found the bed very comfortable and we could choose the layout ie 3 singles. The hotel is situated at the top of a very steep bank which can be tough walking back up from town but plenty of bars, cafe's... More

what a lovely find - at the top of Steepe Hill - so expect to walk everywhere - but it is one of the best B & B's I've stayed in. lovely room, brilliant bed and loads of room. Breakfast needs a bit of work on as it was quite limited (it's served in the tapas bar next door). great... More

A single night break and a charming little hotel. Bit tricky to find but one there, good location (near to the Cathedral) for the town and shops, and lots of character in the hotel. We had a fourposter bed, and good facilities for a reasonable price. Breakfast was in the next door restaurant, and was good. Parking on site, and... More

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
