Nice big room, older style. Bath, no shower (in my room anyway). Friendly staff, good breakfast, pleasant breakfast room. Very short walk to Lincoln Cathedral and restaurants / shops. There's a coin laundry close by as well.

The receptionist said that he had confirmed the booking and secure the rooms for me and asked me not to worry. So I gave them my contacts and details, and yet they did not... More

The owners and staff are very obliging and friendly, and there is adequate parking. The proximity... More

OK - Carpets, Curtains, Shower, Paintwork, Furniture - the whole place needs steam cleaning and the bedspread belongs in a film about WW1 But...£55 for a family room, great breakfast, friendly host, free parking and LITERALLY a stone's throw from the centre (yet nice and quiet) - you can't complain !

It is in the best location you can ask for for seeing this wonderful town. Comfy beds with TV, wifi, tea and coffee. All in all I feel... More

Stayed on several occasions and find it great, If you want plastic all the same and being treated like a number, don't stay here, but if you want a welcoming smile from the eyes and mouth, a breakfast cooked for you, a house full of character (with an owner to boot!), and really friendly staff, pick this one. Location superb,... More

Walking distance to great bars and restaurants, excellent breakfast and a friendly welcome. we have stayed here 3 times and each time I have slept like a log. Not a sterile chain of accommodation that could be anywhere but a place full of character and interest. see you soon!
