Stopped here on a travelzoo deal. Hotel is nice enough for a comfortable nights stay in a nice part of Lincoln opposite the huge Cathedral. Situated in on top of the town in the Bailsgate area a nice place to have a stroll around to view the smaller independent shops and Lincoln Caste. Parking was easy enough (£5 in the... More

Hotel had everything we needed for a comfortable night away. Easy parking, lovely room and view, quiet, enjoyable food and wine in the evening and a breakfast to set you up for the day. The room and hotel were clean and the staff very helpful and friendly.

The hotel is situated in the centre of the small City , a perfect location to walk into the lovely centre. There are several decent pubs and restaurants with five minutes walk. The hotel itself is functional with a basic bar resturant and small gym. It is a little dated in decor and furnishings but ok. The bedrooms are again... More

We enjoyed our weekend with friends. Our bathroom looked as if it had recently been modernised. The room was reasonably decorated and bed comfortable. The breakfast was self served and reasonable. Great location but be aware of steep hill.

We stayed on a Friday taking advantage of the special offer. We where checked in with a smile from the friendly receptionist. Our room was lovely with everything you need. We had a balcony room with a fabulous view of the cathedral. It is definitely worth paying that little bit extra for these rooms. We had a 3 course meal... More

Chose this hotel for its location up the hill opposite the cathedral and near the castle. We were'nt disappointed looking out every breakfast on the splendid cathedral over the road. Overall, the stay was great with comfortable beds, helpful staff and an excellent breakfast range. The only thing that could improve our stay would have radiators in the room that... More
