Upon arrival we was advised that there was a wedding on in the hotel and that we wouldn't be able to use the bar in the long room as the wedding was taking place there, we could however sit in the foyer and order our drinks from the table which would...

Stayed at this hotel to celebrate a 60th birthday, glad that we did. Excellent food in the restaurant, very helpful, attentive staff who helped make the evening a success. Reception staff very professional, couldn't do enough to help. Will definitely stay in this hotel again.

Friends from south of the Country were visiting Lincoln and staying at this Hotel. We joined them for an excellent meal with a very good choice of menu. The staff were smart and courteous and the room was warm and comfortable. A thoroughly enjoyable evening.
