4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel was easy to find using Sat Nav., which guided us deftly around the complications of central Lincoln to a spacious car-part with good-sized spaces. The welcome at reception was warm, friendly pleasant and efficient. We were delighted that the cost of car parking was included in the cost of our room. Our room was a little tired and... More

Close to the cathedral but rather faded 1960's hotel in need of some TLC. The staff are pleasant and efficient and the breakfast is excellent. However at £111 per night it does seem a little expensive although I suppose you are paying for the location and free carparking.

I'm afraid the only really good thing about this hotel is location...it could be amazing but is a little dated. The breakfast was disappointing I just don't get buffet breakfast ...why can't you just order hot food and have it served...only the eggs were freshly cooked...as we sat there a waitress was testing all the food with a temperature gauge!...

Very central right across the road from the cathedral. Lovely breakfast. It was served buffet style and the staff always seemed to be refilling something with fresh food even towards the end of service. Alot of hotels don't do this, but let the food run out towards the end of the service. The room was small but had everything you'd... More

The staff here are excellent , the room had wonderful views of the cathedral from our small balcony. Only one seat on the balcony, would have been better with two and a small table to make the most of the views. Can't fault the location , excellent, we spent some time enjoying the view and sipping champagne , watching the... More

We had a short break in Lincoln recently, staying in the Lincoln Hotel. The hotel is ideally situated opposite the Cathedral and a short walk from the Castle and Steep Hill. The room was pleasant, very clean and spacious, with a Cathedral view. We had a meal in the Green Room on our first night which was excellent, and very... More

The frontage of the hotel disappointingly lacks some character when you arrive in a historic city centre, but this was more than made up of by an amazing view of the cathedral from our room. I'll try and add a photo. Room was fine, dinner and breakfast both good and service very friendly. Dinner service was a bit haphazard but... More

When booking our room through booking.com I requested a quiet room within the hotel. I always make this request, sometimes it works, other times it doesn't. Obviously just depends on how busy and efficient they are. I was delighted that we had a very peaceful and quiet nights sleep. As it is the wedding season, there was a wedding being... More

The best thing about the Lincoln Hotel is the location right by the cathedral. The next best thing is the extensive choice at breakfast: a buffet but the kitchen will also prepare things to order. Our room was quite good, but as this building is now becoming dated there was a shortage of sockets for charging of electronic gear, although... More
