It was our first time ever in Lincoln and what a surprise when we found the hotel. It's situated right on the waterfront of the wharf and it is simply heavenly. The hotel itself is a Holiday Inn and like all Holiday Inns it is a specific standard, well maintained, clean and comfortable with an excellent choice of pillows (I... More

Stayed Thursday-Saturday for family event. Position is very good as directly on wharf with many adjacent eateries and bars and a better view than Hilton Doubletree next door. Easy access to main modern shopping centre which seamlessly blends into fabulous old Lincoln. Our booking was made a week earlier and at that time was better value than competition. It included...

I have stayed at this hotel on several occasions, both on business and with my family. My recent stay was the first time since a rather complex food allergy was diagnosed.

We stayed here for two nights, excellent position reasonably close to the Castle and Cathedral. The room and bathroom was very clean and well maintained. Bed was average as far as comfort goes. Front desk staff very efficient and helpful. Free wifi but signal not always the strongest. Close to a good selection of restaurants

We were part of a coach group that stayed here for one night on a Sunday in August. There must have been 50+ passengers on the coach, but we were handled very smoothly by the 2 receptionists and had our room keys within minutes of arriving.

I'd read a few 'negative' reviews and as a result had some doubts about using the hotel for a 2 night break, but risked it.
