Regular visitors to lincoln to visit family and friends and normally stay for a few nights. We thought we would try the Eastgate as we saw the reviews! How wrong we were. This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed at and as a former hotel reviewer I know what to expect. Yes, the entrance is a bit shabby... More

Lounge not too welcoming and was noisy one night with a wedding reception but that calmed down by midnight. Hotel near to many attractions but the main part is down a... More

The hotel was great and the Green Room restaurant was superb, small areas that made it feel cosy, excellent service and food with a good selection (tuna starter was very good moist and sweet- rib eye main was cooked well (very rare just as asked for). The room we had was a Cathedral view and although the bells rang frequently... More

We stayed here last Sat night. We arranged to meet friends there for the weekend.We had a deal with Travel zoo the same as before and it was just as good value for money again. There had been a bit of refurbishing done since last August and hopefully they will think about refurbing the bedrooms (especially the carpet). The only... More

On the outside this is an odd looking 1960's concrete building which does not look like a hotel. It looks like the hotel is undergoing a refurbishment and the style of the hotel is modern retro with Orla Kiely prints in reception. Positives: *Great location directly opposite Lincoln Cathedral. Many of the rooms have a cathedral view which is impressive.... More

Great place, clean and nicely decorated, the staff are always on hand and couldn't have been friendlier or more accommodating to all their guests needs. The bar and lounge area look right across to the cathedral so you can admire the view over a drink or whilst browsing the papers that are abundantly supplied. Would definitely stay here again, its...

Unfortunately I was dropped by taxi at the rear of the hotel and struggled to get in only to find the poor receptionist was perched on an isolated desk in the middle of a building site,as the hotel is undergoing renovation work. Very friendly and efficient check in - I did struggle a little to find my room and whilst... More
