I arrived on Wednesday 10th Sept at the Holiday Inn ready to check in to a twin bedded room. As I had stayed at the hotel on a previous occasion I had booked in May to ensure that I would get a nice room on one of the upper floors. You can imagine my surprise when I was allocated a... More

Very nice, friendly and helpful staff. The hotel is very near the centre and along a stretch know for it's night life. If you want a quiet get away, this not the place, with it's sports bar and Starbucks on site. That said, I'd visit again.

As a business traveller, I get to see lots and lots of hotels. Unfortunately, most of the time this is not always a good experience. But just sometimes I come across accommodation that is "just right". This hotel is one of these establishments. To start with, the parking is sufficient, unlike the hotel next door where it is not and... More

I booked a night at this hotel via Laterooms. Unfortunately, I made an error and booked the wrong date, which I didn't notice until after the date had passed by 1 day. I rang the hotel, hoping a chain of this size would understand that people do sometimes make errors and could they do anything. Initially I was told the... More

Reasonable hotel, relatively comfortable, however the bed in our room had a definite sag in the middle so it looks like the mattresses need replacing in at least our room. The bar and restaurant lack any form of atmosphere being quite clinical. The location however is lovely, walking distance to the town centre and cathedral right on the wharf front.... More

I have stayed here twice, when visiting my son in Lincoln. The rooms are spotless, large, well appointed- especially the ones with views over Brayford Quay. The staff are friendly. It is centrally located, a very short walk into town. There are plenty of restaurants and a cinema, close by. It is opposite the University, and close to some student... More

As we have never been to Lincoln before we decided to give it a go and booked the Holiday Inn on Bayford Marina and we are so glad we did. Our room was on the 4th floor (416) which was very well appointed, comfortable and very clean. The location is perfect and only 5 mins walk from all the shops... More

I have stayed in Holiday Inn hotels in many parts of the world and unfortunately this is not one of the best. The location can't be faulted and is walking distance to everything that Lincoln has to offer. The staff were great, very attentive and pleasant - although check in took forever. However we found the standard of the room... More
