We are just back from a 2 night Travelzoo offer at The Lincoln Hotel in Lincoln. This hotel is right opposite the Cathedral with lots of lovely areas to walk to easily. The staff go out of their way to make sure that your stay is special. Dinner was included in The Green Room and it was superb. All local... More

I stayed here with my husband and another couple. We had the travel zoo deal which tied in nicely with a family party. we parked in the car park which charges £5 overnight which is reasonable and entered the hotel via the car park entrance. The hotel looks a big tired in areas but the reception welcome was warm and... More

We had booked a family room and were surprised to find on our arrival that the room did not have any air conditioning. As a result we had to leave the windows open to allow for air circulation and comfort. In addition to the disturbance from the generators outside our room, we were unfortunately all (including our two young boys)... More

TZ offer which was reasonably priced. Great meeting from young man on reception, credit to hotel. Sadly one and only nice helpful staff member. Hotel had been overbooked over bank holiday weekend and also had two weddings booked in. (Apart from lovely view of Cathedral I can't imagine why this would be anyone's wedding venue choice) We ate in the... More

We visited Lincoln specifically to visit the cathedral which was well worth the trip. The hotel is in a superb location and we had a room overlooking the cathedral. the food was very good, breakfast especially as although it was a buffet all the food was freshly prepared and not kept warm unnecessarily. We enjoyed a trip on the river... More

Stayed with my mum for a lovely 2 night stay at The Lincoln, we were given a room with a balcony overlooking the Cathedral which was great, the room was compact but modern and had everything needed including tea/coffee/biscuits/shower gel/soap/shower cap/nail file/hairdryer, etc.. as well as chairs/table. We didn't work out the aircon on the first night and were very... More

We chose this hotel principally because of its location, close to the Cathedral - just couldn't be closer - and the 'bus stop (both the 'open top' tour 'bus and the regular 'Walk and Ride 'bus). There is complimentary car parking for guests which is very welcome. Our room had a balcony and view over the magnificent Lincoln Cathedral and... More

Would have given 5 stars if served Fairtrade tea and coffee. All good though. Bar 67 a real trip back in time. It's on top of hill but plenty of restarants and pubs and shops around there. Would go back

Reservation:Called to book direct on planned day of arrival and price quoted was more than the Booking.com. There was no attempt to negotiate by the joyless telephonist which is a bit daft as they lost my two room booking to Booking.com where I achieved a better rate and the Lincoln paid commission. Arrival: car park is controlled by barriers: the... More
