Some hotels fail to do this when multiple rooms are booked.Had to move the car on Saturday due to an event on the wharf but reception range me in advance of arrival date to let me know Friendly and helpful staff...

The Holiday Inn Lincoln is set in the river front in Lincoln and is surrounded by restaurants and bars. It's a bit of a walk upto the old part of town and uphill all the way, so a bus or taxi might be the best way to see the cathedral etc. The hotel is as you would expect modern and... More

Convenient location, spacious rooms, pleasant staff and a car park! All sorts of people staying in the hotel with some decent bars and restaurants close by. Its also really convenient for the town centre. Definitely no complaints and would recommend for a long weekend stay.

Unfortunately the noise from the refurbishment was a disappointment but I have tried to take this out of the equation as this is not ongoing. The hotel did take note of my request for a quiet room but not only did the hammering and drilling always sound like it was coming from next door but we also had the noise... More

Stayed here for the Easter Weekend, wonderful location, staff very friendly. Our room with 2 double beds overlooked Brayford Water, very quiet, meaning we had 4 great nights sleep, we were on bed and breakfast, plenty of breakfast items to choose from, the poato cakes (not hash browns) were delicious. Now to a few things that the hotel need to... More

Stayed on business. Although the hotel is undergoing refurbishment we received the usually good standards of hospitality and service. The waterfront location was an unexpected bonus and made for an interesting view over breakfast. Would stay again if in the area.
