Booked as a special offer through Travelzoo: 2 nights b&b plus £20pp toward dinner and glass of prosecco each for £149. Staff very friendly and helpful. Dinner in Green Room Restaurant was excellent: good choice and beautifully cooked and presented. Breakfast was good: great choice including many items cooked to order. 1960s retro styling not to my taste but everything... More

We had a lovely 3 nights here. The room was quiet (always important!) The shower was good and the bed comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast fab. Every thing you could think of on the buffet or you could order anything to be cooked fresh. We would especially like to compliment our waitress in the restaurant... More

If you want to visit Lincoln to see the Cathedral, Castle and 'old town' then look no further than the Lincoln Hotel. It is ideally situated to visit the sights and the Hotel, staff and food will not disappoint you. We took advantage of a special offer which included a Cathedral view room with DBB and we weren't disappointed, in... More

We stayed here on Sat night with friends. We have stayed 3_times before. The room was fine, staff helpful and a lovely meal once again in the Green room. The only thing that let it down was the cooked breakfast. Things have been moved round since we were there last summer and most of the cooked food was cold or... More

Very nice hotel, clean and cosy the only thing I would suggest that although it does say it is in uphill Lincoln it needs to explain how steep it is to walk down and back up from the town centre as I really struggled and if I had my Mam with me she would not have managed and I did... More

Dear Guest Thank you for your trip advisor review, I am delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. Steep Hill itself was awarded Britain’s Best Street in 2012 and certainly is an interesting talking point for all our visitors to Lincoln.

The cathedral view which filled the window of the room was amazing. The clock bells however start at 7 am (alarm clock not needed) and ring every 15 minutes until 11 pm. The hotel location is excellent - within walking distance of everything. The hotel looks a little tired in parts and the lift door has a mind of its... More

We booked this hotel through a traveling offer. We had a room overlooking the cathedral , which was very comfortable with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The dinner we had was delicious although I do wonder why we need to eat off a bread board. Breakfast was historic, even had trumpets to toast. Staff were excellent very professional... More
