We stayed here as two couples on a travelzoo one night break. Both couples had Cathedral view rooms and what a view we had, simple stunning both day and night. The room we had (302) was on the top floor and was very spacious and clean. We had everything we wanted including the facilities to make a drink in our... More

Celebrating my wife's birthday, we were lucky enough to be offered the Princess Suite in this superb hotel. From the moment we were greeted by the ever helpful and welcoming Danielle, the hotel lived up to and far exceeded our expectations. The room was located in the old part of the contempory hotel, enormous in size, superbly equipped and had... More

Me and a friend stayed at the Lincoln Hotel for two nights for a friends Wedding which took place at the Hotel itself. The service upon arrival was lovely and very welcoming. We stayed in a twin room which was faultless upon entering. The bed itself reminded me of home which a Hotel rarely does so that was a bonus.... More

Well managed hotel with cheerful and helpful staff. Rooms comfortable (though can be very warm during the night). Good room facilities (tea, coffees etc) and comfortable furnishings. Green Room organising of available tables was a bit chaotic (our friends unable to join us as tables fully booked, whereas in fact several tables stayed empty all through our meal). Conference facilities... More

We stayed one night after a wedding reception. The food at the reception was excellent. Good selection of drinks available over the bar. Quite expensive, but, hey, this IS a Hotel!! If you want cheaper, walk out to the many bars available. Room had all the facilities we required, including biscuits and chocolate drinks! Very clean, and friendly helpful staff.... More

We spent two nights at this hotel. Great room overlooking cathedral. The room had everything we needed + spacious shower. All staff were very friendly and we felt very welcome. The restaurant meal was excellent as was breakfast. We would certainly stay here again.

Located right by the cathedral this was the most convenient base for exploring the city. There was ample parking and the surroundings were quiet with little traffic noise. Rooms were clean and comfortable with modern bathrooms. Soundproofing between rooms was not perfect, however. Corridors were rather dull and depressing. Breakfast was good apart from the coffee which was poor quality.... More

Plus points: super friendly staff. Good breakfasts (but why only full fat milk and no bananas?). Extremely convenient for cathedral (opposite) and castle behind that. Quiet when we stayed (April). Good selection of herbal teas in the room and shortbread delicious. Bedroom a decent size. Negatives: Green Room staff not overly professional, food okay. Bed rock hard, very cheap and... More

The hotel is at the top of the city and faces the cathedral. It is well worth an upgrade to a cathedral view. The carhedral clock does not strike between 22.45 and 7.00! The building does not have modern standards of sound proofing but is reasonably quiet. The room decoration was a llittle tired but it was a good size... More
