Stayed here for two nights while visiting friends. Superb location on the Waterfront so a choice of bars, restaurants, coffee shops (and even a cinema) within a couple of minutes walk. Away from the town centre bustle but close to it and to the Cathedral & Castle. We had a ground floor room at the front of the Hotel and... More

I've stayed at this hotel several nights a week for several months while working on a project for work and the staff have always been friendly, the rooms have always been clean (decor is a little dated but they have started modernising some of the rooms and is certainly not as dated as some hotels I've stayed in) - the...

This is in a great location next to a renovated wharf with nightlife area right outside the door and a Starbucks in the lobby. Room was good: clean, spacious enough, quiet. Pain to find the place by car, even with SatNav, because you have to actually drive on the pedestrian area, and then pay extra for parking. Come by train!

Just back from a weekend at this hotel. Superb location directly next to Brayford Wharf. Lots of pubs and restaurants nearby, but away from the bustle of the city centre. Staff were all very helpful. There was a scooter rally on the wharf front when we arrived, so had to park in a car park away from the hotel. We... More

Stayed here in a standard room on the Friday night before Waddington Air Show so the hotel was pretty busy but didn't hear a thing outside the room. Location on the wharf is excellent with many bars and restaurants nearby. However, the non-chain restaurants tend to be some way away on or at the top of the steep hill up... More

Checked in to hotel, reception staff were busy but not overly friendly. Arrive at room, bed runners were creased, no overhead light, damp on bathroom ceiling. Ran a bath, flushed toilet and sewage smelling water came up from the vent under the toilet. Called reception twice before they finally answered. Reported the issue and was told it was a common...

Nothing special but everything you need. Clean, quiet, very fast and efficient check in and check out. The one complaint would be the state of the bathroom. It is quite dated, but it is clean so I do not suppose it matters really. Good value sleep over.

We stayed here on Good Friday, and found the hotel very comfortable. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast on the Saturday morning was fresh and hot, and a limited choice, but also sufficient. Reception staff are always very helpful.

A Lincolnshire wedding brought us to Lincoln on a Friday night, as part of a two hotel weekend jaunt. I had booked a family room in the Holiday Inn, on Brayford Wharf North well in advance and got a good price, which included breakfast. We arrived at around 8pm and our main difficulty was finding the car park. The Satnav... More
