Best points - brilliant staff, good breakfast. Bad points - tired room, stains all over carpet, pubic hair in bed, noise every few minutes from a boiler or generator, very poor for the price we paid. My bedroom at home is better and we wanted something for a special occasion. The whole vibe of the hotel was strange. Booked cathedral... More

As a Lincoln resident this was the perfect place to sit outside in the sunshine facing the Cathedral for lunch. Smoked salmon sandwich was lovely but was on poor quality sliced bread. Same with the wine, lovely white & chilled but served in a chipped glass.

From the moment we arrived we were met by professional and friendly staff. A big hands up to the management who have trained their staff to a very high standard. Our spotlessly clean room was right opposite the beautiful Cathedral and the hotel is superbly situated to visit all the great sites Lincoln has to offer. We had a meal... More

We have stayed at The Lincoln Hotel previously and chose this hotel again for an overnight weekend stay due the Cathedral being directly opposite and the lovely shops and restaurants at Bailgate a very short walking distance away. I would recommend staying at The Lincoln Hotel, however I would suggest that you check to see if the Hotel is hosting... More

My friend and I enjoyed a lovely afternoon tea served by friendly attentive staff. The tea was purchased as a Travelzoo offer and included a glass of prosecco. The meal could be taken any time between 11 and 4 so we decided to make it lunch which was an excellent option. A bonus was being able to park in the... More

Every member of staff we met was friendly, helpful and professional. Our room was spotlessly clean with a magnificent view of the cathedral. There was plenty of storage space. Our bed was comfortable and enabled us to have a good nights sleep on both nights. The food in the Green Room restaurant was excellent and there was no shortage of... More

We spent one night here on a TravelZoo deal and were delighted with every aspect. All the staff we encountered were friendly and efficient, our room and bathroom were spotless and the dinner we had in the restaurant was delicious. Breakfast was also good with plenty of choice. The situation of the hotel is perfect for site seeing and being... More

We needed a hotel with parking and with easy access to the cathedral for events, and this hotel was ideal. We stayed five nights and enjoyed the location and style of the hotel very much. The breakfast buffet was varied and fresh, and we enjoyed an evening meal in The Green Room. Our only concern was that the bar doubled... More
