My wife and I have actually stayed here twice, once for a wedding and once to visit friends who live nearby. Both stays were very pleasant. Because the hotel is in town it's very easy to get anywhere you want to go. It's right opposite the cathedral too so nice views. The staff are nice, the rooms are clean,if a... More

I stayed here recently for two nights and thought it was a great hotel. The rooms were clean and well equipped, although a little on the small side (however the balcony overlooking the cathedral more than made up for that!) The buffet breakfasts were very tasty and all the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Discovered Bar 67 on our... More

Visited as part of a travel zoo offer. All staff were really friendly and attentive. Service spot on. Food excellent in the green room restaurant and at breakfast. Room with veiw of cathedral, comfortable and clean. Would definitely stay here again and recommend! Probably one of our best stays anywhere.

The Lincoln Hotel is situated in a beautiful location overlooking the Cathedral. We have stayed here a couple of times and enjoy the quietness and privacy of the Garden Rooms with a little patio to sit out when the weather is lovely. These rooms are not large but have lovely shower room and a huge bed. Our room and bathroom... More

Ideal location at the top of the town across from the Cathedral, good parking, Food good, staff friendly and helpful, and a lot easier to park and get into than the Hart. Well worth the price, our room had lovely views to the Cathedral and a small balcony to sit on and watch the sun set behind the spires, and... More

This was our second stay at the lincoln hotel. Our first room had cathedral view which was spectacular. Our recent room had a garden view. The room was adequate although it had two single beds rather than the double we had booked. It was air show week so we didnt persue this, thinking they were fully booked. Fairly clean. Good... More
