Friendly hotel with a very good breakfast choice. Hotel rooms are clean and modern. The hotel is a very easy walk for the castle and the cathedral. There are numerous good restaurants near to the cathedral.

An easy walk to Lincoln town centre with beautiful views of the cathedral. Parking is free to customers but also a charge to the public. Hotel does have a lift which was close to the carpark making it easier to transport luggage. Staff where very friendly and helpful.

Booked the hotel for the Steampunk festival and weren't disappointed, it is perfectly placed near the Cathederal within a stones throw of the Castle and the Steep hill shops, restaurants and market. The room was spacious, well equipped and quiet despite two weddings going on downstairs during our stay! The bed was marvellously comfortable - just what was needed after... More

This is opposite the Cathedral and perfectly placed for the Castle and the quaint areas and shops at the top of Steep Hill. The hotel seems to be the most popular place in the city for weddings as there was one everyday we were there. The room was clean, with a small TV, smallish bathroom with bath and good hot... More

I had read other reviews and as such was unsure what to expect. However, we really enjoyed our stay, the room was very clean and was not as dated as we had expected. The room had a small balcony that had a sideways view of the cathedral. In fact for what we paid we were highly delighted with the accommodation.... More

The Lincoln Hotel is literally across the road from the fabulous cathedral and the castle and restaurants are a stones throw away. The decor is a bit tired and the bed wasn't the most comfortable but the staff were lovely and the breakfast, which was included, was excellent.
