Out the front door, up the steps through the garden, along the path to the heavy gate which swings shut after you leave. Provided with a code for re entry we walked up the the steep cobblestone roadway and within 3 minutes we were in the heart of the city looking at the nearby castle and cathedral. Perfect. Such a...

The place is quirky home and so friendly! We were met by a lovely young man who couldn't do enough for us! He gave us a tour of the buildings and told us where to visit and how to get there. Superb welcome! We decided to have a glass of wine and admire the gardens before setting off and this... More

For anyone who just wants a good rest in a really comfy bed, and a nice simple breakfast, before heading into Lincoln, this place is perfect! Martin, the proprietor is lovely and really accommodating. We (myself and another couple) were in Lincoln for the Lincolnshire Show and we booked late, but Martin found us rooms, and given that we where... More

Bathroom on different floor was a bit of a pain, but all told the place is OK. Well placed for town and cathedral. Parking is not easy, with a big car it could be scary! Breakfast is continental self service, but works well.

The staff and owners seemed really friendly. This place suited us perfectly, very relaxed atmosphere and shared bathroom was really smart. Great variety of teas in the room and jams at breakfast! One warning is that the drive really is steep and thin- according to my partner (who was driving) it is easier to negotiate than it looks though!

Behave "shabby not chic" note to trip advisor readers if you are staying anywhere and other guests are outrageously noisy ring the contact number. If I'm woken up at 4am somebodies getting ejected. Only ever happened once but that was once to many. More

We stopped one night at The Poplars to meet up with some friends. The property is a Victorian house with magnificent views over the city and beyond. The bedroom (one of 20~) was well appointed with a good range of tea and coffee to choose from, the bed was really comfortable with duvet covers. Plenty of space in the room... More
