Stayed for one night on business, alone. Excellent location once found - postcode on the sat nav lead me to a dead end at the other end of the Wharf, but hotel reception were very helpful when I phoned for directions.

We are an active older couple who travel extensively, we look for accommodation that is quiet, comfortable beds and reasonable roomy and in a good location. This hotel, apart from anything else, scores 100% on location - as stated by the other reviewers. If you are visiting the Lincoln area to see the area, this is the ideal hotel. It... More

Stayed here recently for a conference at the University. This hotel is ideally situated for the University and is very close to Lincoln town centre, and just a stroll up (the very steep hill) from the cathedral and castle. There are lots of places to eat on the riverside, and the hotel has a Starbucks and a sports bar downstairs.... More

the room was on the 3rd floor, whilst the hotel is next to a main road you didn't hear traffic all night, in fact I didn't hear many cars. There are some building works currently being undertaken, but this was not intrusive. Beds were very comfortable. The duvet was fairly thick though. I would of preferred a thin sheet. Restaurant...

I stayed here overnight as I was visiting the castle. I contacted reception prior to arrival to get clear directions as reading other reviews guests couldn't always find the car park. The receptionist was very helpful and gave us excellent information to get to the car park. Check in was quick and the man who checked us in was friendly... More

What a great stay, lovely location by the river, excellent room and breakfast. Parking just £5 and friendly staff. Wont stay at Premier Inn again! It has a feel of an expensive hotel (we had a king suite) rather than the 'budget hotel' its known as.
