Title says it all for many years I have avoided staying in Holiday Inn express places because historically they have been appalling, but this place in Lincoln was actually really very good and location couldn't have been any better for my time at the University Engineering dept. The room was a tad small but totally functional with free wifi which... More

Lovely new hotel, centrally located, very clean and wonderfully comfy beds and pillows. That's where the nice stuff ends.... What can I say, breakfast was free but it should be! It was shocking. No bacon, no fresh eggs, no mushrooms, no grapefruit/ orange segments nothing suitable for gluten intolerance!! My hubby who has coeliacs could only have an orange juice... More

Stayed for the weekend for a family get together. Firstly the other holiday inn is more central despite this one being called city centre! Like all budget hotels the room was fine with everything you need. Comfortable bed and fairly large. What let the hotel down was breakfast! The only hot options are sausages that I don't even think Iceland... More

Thank you reviewing your stay with us in Lincoln. I am pleased to see that the room provided you with everything you needed during your overnight stay.

Just stayed with friends for two nights. Excellent location, ten minutes walk to the waterfront. Warm welcome from all staff. We paid for the parking £5 per day, car park is attached to the hotel. Free wifi in bedrooms, rooms comfortable with very efficient air conditioning.

Well as with all basic hotels, the room was clean and everything was to hand. Unfortunately due to the location the noise of the traffic does not aid a good night sleep so ask for a room at the rear of the hotel. The pillows were very uncomfortable and even though they were labelled soft and firm it was hard... More

Found a deal on the internet with free breakfast. We had a bit of trouble finding the place as the website showed the wrong hotel. When we got there the receptionist said sorry and she had told head office and they were going to change the map. The room was excellent and had a great views of the town and... More

She told us we had to pay £5 for parking which we were unaware of and when we asked if this applied to blue badge holders she... More

I have stayed in a few Holiday Inn Express hotels and they are all pretty much the same standard. The staff here were very good, the room was clean and tidy but what I liked about this one is that it is easy to get to, get parked and there are restaurants within walking distance. There is a large supermarket... More

This is a really nice budget hotel. It is easy to find, although the tomtom took me to the retail park instead, and parking is hidden away but plenty of spaces available. £5 a night not too bad really and the location suited my needs perfectly. The room was lovely and clean. Very comfortable bed and nice shower. The staff... More

We stayed here in May 2015. We weren't able to locate the hotel initially (as we were new to Lincoln) and the way we approached the hotel meant it was hidden from view by a building under construction (we heard no noise from this during our stay). We called the hotel and were guided in by the lady at the... More
