The Old rectory is a throwback from days gone by. The building is probably Victorian , the bedrooms, no two alike range from Doubles/singles and twins with on suite to the same with shared facilities. There is a comfortable dining room but no bar. 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 !

We stayed one night here and were very happy! The house has real character and charm with plenty of information and very friendly hosts. Our room was massive! The breakfast was lovely. 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!

Lincoln is one of my favourite cities and we always prefer to stay near the historic centre. The Old Rectory fits the bill beautifully and definitely looks the part too. As ever, we got a warm welcome and was well looked after in all respects.

Have spent many weeks now in The Old Rectory, very nice breakfast and catered for exceptionally well, if you need comfort and ease of travel to Lincoln's Castle and Cathedral and historic quarter then I 100% recommend The Old Rectory. The most important thing for me was the comfortable nights sleep, I've stayed in hotels for £160.00 per night and... More
