Stayed, as many have, on the Travel Zoo promotion for two nights. Room was basic and really quite tired however the view across to the Cathedral was amazing. Food in the restaurant was good but not fantastic as many have posted, but again exceptional value. Prices in the bar were also reasonable although the young lady serving at night was... More

The Lincoln hotel looks average from outside but is superbly situated for cathedral and castle - ask for cathedral view room. Restaurant is average - steak not great and air con was too cold in places; blows onto sitting position in some places. Staff very attentive generally and rooms quiet and fairly well appointed though not luxurious.

The Lincoln is superbly located opposite the Cathedral giving great views. We had a Catherdal view double with balcony and standing there looking out on the Cathedral at night with the flood lights was really nice. The room was I must say was a little dated, the funiture was chipped around the edges and the bath had a large chip... More

We stayed at The Lincoln Hotel with a travelzoo voucher for 2 nights, and had a wonderful time. The location is ideal, right by the cathedral and castle, and the shops are close by too. As soon as we arrived we were met by James the general manager, and Susie and Jodie on reception, who made us so welcome. Nothing... More

Stayed using a Travelzoo voucher. What a bargain, had a lovely couple of days there. The staff are very friendly and the meal in the restaurant was superb, we were well looked after by Lucas. We had a Cathedral view room which was very nice and the view amazing especially at night when the Cathedral is lit up. Very central... More

This is an ideal location for the cathedral quarter with free parking. Booking our stay was no issue but on arrival the Receptionist was not very helpful, not a good impression for the hotel, I did raise the issue when booking out. Room clean comfortable and what we had expected. Breakfast, restaurant and bar service acceptable. Could hear the person... More

Attended a conference there. Food, room and facilities were fine, location excellent with views of the Cathedral. First night was at another hotel as heating was down in the area I was booked into, notified before hand and they had arranged for us to stay at another hotel. It worked out fine as we got to sample 2 off Lincoln's... More

This hotel is ideally placed, being right opposite the Cathedral itself. It is a retro hotel and is very busy, it is situated in the old part of the city at the top of the hill, so to get to the bottom requires a steep walk down, bus or taxi. I took a group and we ate in a separate... More

The Lincoln Hotel is located very close to the City Centre, next door to the cathedral. The hotel is retro in style in keeping with the building, but this has been achieved in a calm manner with modern influences. The Green Room Restaurant has a romantic, intimate feel and the decor is beautiful. Our spacious room overlooked the cathedral. The... More

Great clean spacious room overlooking a beautiful cathedral. Excellent value for one of the busiest weekends in Lincoln. Right in the heart of the events for the 800th birthday of the magna carta. Breakfast was piping hot and tasty
