I went to Lincoln for Steampunk Asylum we stayed one night and had a twin room for me and my lad, it was very comfy and clean, good tea/coffee making facilities, the staff was most helpful and breakfast was just right for us, you could leave your bags at reception when checking out, which was a great help for us...

We stayed here with our 3 year old son on 31st August 2015, we made our booking through booking.com and we're quite disappointed when we arrived only to be told our booking was only for 1 adult, when we told the receptionist we had actually booked for 2 adults and a child in a room with a double bed and...

We stayed two nights from 28 August to attend the Steampunk event. A great hotel with everything we needed - spacious room, fully air conditioned and included buffet breakfast. A very hilly walk to the Castle - we got the shuttle bus the next day and used taxis in the evening. Hotel staff were lovely, very friendly and helpful -... More

No one expects five star accommodation when walking through an Express' door, but everything and that is everything has been reduced to the lowest possible (easy to supply) denominator. Except the helpful and welcoming staff, of course. Food is re-heated from a pre cooked package and charged at a high price. Breakfast hot drinks are from a machine, with all... More

I stayed here for one night. We had a family room for my husband and I and our son - the room was very clean but cramped. The breakfast was poor - the cooked choice was scrambled inedible powdered egg, sausages and baked beans. The location of the hotel is good - it is quiet and you can walk into... More

Stayed for one night and staff were very helpful. Breakfast was varied and filling. The hotel is very well equipped and close to the shops and canal. That will even provide other essentials if you forget to pack them.

We went to Lincoln for a short break. We chose the Holiday Inn Express on price and location. Although the hotel is a little further from the Cathedral Quarter than we usually are we liked the walk into the city centre. The room was very comfortable and clean. The breakfast was basic and self service buffet style but none the... More

Stay here for 1 night as a stop over whilst travelling back from Lowestoft. The hotel is smart, clean, efficient and well positioned. It is just a 10 min walk into the centre. The waterfront area is a great place to sit, eat, drink and watch the world go by. Back to the hotel, it does exactly what you want... More

Clean comfortable rooms, friendly staff, short walk from wharf with a wide range of restaurants to choose from. Spacious reception and bar area. Breakfast simple self service and perfectly adequate - the hot food is sausage scrambled egg and beans so not full English but didn't matter to us. No cold meats for the continental breakfast but plenty of fruit... More

The room was very clean, and responsible spacious... there was even a chose of pillows from firm to soft (with funky little labels). Breakfast wasn't great especially the coffee machine - but you could purchase a really coffee from the bar. The staff were VERY VERY helpful. The location is perfect to go and explore Lincoln, close to the town... More
