Very well placed to visit the cathedral and old centre of Lincoln. Parking easy and secure. Staff friendly and efficient and restaurant much better than expected. Room clean and with all basic amenities and comfortable beds. Also very good value if booked well in advance. Recommended as an interesting stay on a trip to the North of England.

A modern hotel, architectorily seems out of place in this historic location, however great views across road to the Cathedral & its grounds. Easy walk to medieval old town & castle. Steep hill descent to shopping area and waterfront, plenty of stopping places for return walk. Two night stay and we were very happy with our reception and Cathedral facing... More

We have stayed at the Lincoln hotel on a number of occasions and have had an excellent stay! The second time we were delighted to have a room with a cathedral view which was beyond our expectations.We went on a deal with bed breakfast and dinner on the first night and the food was excellent!

Just spent one night at the Lincoln Hotel and found all aspects of the service provided was excellent. Rooms were clean and the breakfast was very good. All the staff we met were very pleasant and helpful. Finally, what a location! Being only about 100 meters from one of the most beautiful cathedrals in the UK, the hotel immediately starts... More

For a sensibly priced hotel this was good value. Efficient check in and out, room on the small side but perfectly comfortable and good shower. Only ate breakfast which was fine, although limited vegetarian options. Service friendly and pleasant but breakfast on Saturday morning rather chaotic as staff seemed overwhelmed by large party staying following an event. Brilliant location, lovely... More

We enjoyed our stay in this hotel with fabulous view of cathedral from our room. The room and shower room were spacious and very clean. The breakfast was excellent with extras that you could order such as smoked haddock and poached eggs which my husband said was wonderful. We had an evening meal in the Green Room which was very...

We stayed at the Lincoln for 3 nights, returning home earlier today. As our stay incorporated our wedding anniversary we'd previously made a couple of room requests, these were kindly honoured - this added to what was a really delightful stay. We definitely chose the right hotel and couldn't imagine a nicer experience. I would have given an 'excellent' rating... More

The hotel is situated opposite Lincoln cathedral and is ideally placed for visiting the city. The hotel is still completing a refurbishment but still managed to be a comfortable place to visit.
