Stayed on a two night Travelzoo deal, B&B both nights, dinner up to £20 each first evening with glass of Prosecco. We had requested a garden room ob booking which was honoured, as we had heard the rooms overlooking Cathedral can be a bit noisy if you don't want to hear the bell chiming every 15 minutes , lovely to...

This is an old Hotel, right opposite the Cathedral. Updated bathrooms, but bedroom was a little dated but comfortable. You can walk to the Castle (see the Magna Carta Museum and the short movie), the Cathedral ( just amazing) and the Museums from here, and not have to drive. Ask for a room with a view of the Cathedral which... More

Balcony room well worth the extra cost, magnificent view, food quality was excellent. And staff particularly friendly. Don't bother with vip upgrade unless you need the early check in and late checkout.

I booked a balcony room with a lovely view of Lincoln cathedral for my husband's 50th birthday and we weren't disappointed. It was a spacious room with a huge bed and a lovely bathroom with a large walk in shower. Breakfast was buffet style and very good. I would definitely recommend this hotel, all staff were also attentive.

Our cathedral view room was clean and spacious ,the staff welcoming and efficient, and the food , both in the Green Room restaurant and at breakfast, very good indeed.

We stayed here on a Travelzoo voucher deal (£99 for cathedral view room, breakfast, £20 each to spend on the restaurant menu and a glass of Prosecco each) which seemed pretty reasonable compared to its standard price. The hotel is in a good location, right next to the cathedral, and as stated, the 'cathedral view' rooms certainly have that! Our... More
