We stayed at the White Heart, for one night, with the intention of a nice celebration meal, for my birthday, in their restaurant, “The Lincoln Grille”. We parked in the hotel car park which is adjacent to the main entrance. This was very good for a medieval city centre hotel. From the hotel it’s only a short walk to the... More

Stayed here in Lincoln over night. From the outside it looks like a coaching inn, lovely facade, down a narrow road, lined with shops. Both the cathedral and castle a couple of minutes walk away. Also a good selection of tea rooms, bistros and pubs on the doorstep. When you walk inside it is very modern. Gone are the small... More

We booked an overnight stay here as we were going to the Waddington International Air Show over the weekend. The hotel is in a great location approx. 5 minutes walk from the truly amazing Lincoln Cathedral and historic Lincoln Castle (under refurbishment until 2015). Steep Hill is nearby and worth a wander down (you might want to get a taxi... More

I stay regularly at The White Hart and have been doing for a few months now. I wouldn't keep coming back if I didn't like it! Since the refurbishment, the bedrooms look great, the bar and restaurant are comfortable yet contemporary.

1964. We had our Wedding Reception here at the White Hart, so to celebrate we decided to return to this hotel.

Turned up late and had to leave early from this hotel. Everything was spot on and wish I could have stayed longer. So short and sweet review and would have given it five stars but not there long enough to taste breakfast or drink in bar. Maybe next time.

Stayed at the Whit Hart last Saturday night, although we didn't book until a couple of days before there was no problem getting a room.
