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

Thanks to Lorne my stay was really good, almost nothing is too much effort, wifi signal good, only criticism is to do with evening food, no healthy main or dessert available and yet at breakfast healthy desserts are available such as grapefruit segments, peaches and apples Why not offer a fruit salad as a dessert? Oh well will stay next... More

This gem sits on Brayford Marina right in the centre of Lincoln. Our room was at the rear of the hotel from which you could see the Cathedral overlooking the town. A nicely sized room with a very comfortable, large bed and a decent size tv with a reasonable selection of channels. The location of this hotel is exceptional with... More

We stayed here for 2 nights late October this year, chose this hotel as the reviews and location sounded good. View from the rooms are either the Cathedral or the Marina both being good. The location is very good on the waterfront with the cathedral and castle about 15 mins away up the Steep Hill which is very steep, but... More

The bedroom was cold until I switched on a heater, so not a warm welcome... The bed was comfortable and the room had a nice view over the marina but very little attention to detail or guest comfort or convenience. No sockets near the bed which I would think was standard, no fridge, large empty areas in the room so... More

Stayed for just one night while my son visited the University Open Day. Great location on the waterfront with cafes, bars and restaurants; really cool area. Hotel easy to find and great to have an onsite car park. Check-in was speedy and the room had the usual Holiday Inn layout. Room was clean and fresh, bathroom was a little dated... More
