Good size room, clean and cosy. Clean bathroom. Car park on the premises.Good service, got the key straight away. A big park just down the path but a bit of a walk up the hill to get to the old centre.

I recently stayed at the Hillcrest Hotel to attend the Lincoln Christmas market. My friends and I were fortunate to get a booking at this wonderful hotel. It is not 5* (but it doesn't claim to be either!). I had a single room which was adequate for my use. I was in town to see the sights, not spend time... More

An overnight stop to see a little of Lincoln and to meet up with friends. The Hillcrest is not a luxury hotel, but it was perfect for our visit as it is close to the Cathedral, Castle and the old town. We didn't have breakfast but our room was clean and the bed (four poster) extremely comfortable. It was a... More

Excellent location with amiable owners always prepared to help. Breakfast in pleasant surroundings. English breakfast was a little disappointing as only one sausage one bacon rasher. No egg provided. Toast delicious however

I stayed at the Hillcrest for two nights. The check-in was friendly quick and efficient. My room was located on the top floor. It was comfortable, a good size with a double bed, sofa and wet room. The Wi-Fi is excellent throughout the hotel. I opted for the full English breakfast each morning it was good quality although a fairly... More

We enjoyed our one night stay at the Hillcrest for my birthday. The place we normally stay in Lincoln was fully booked so after much searching we came across this small hotel. The car park is small but we got there fairly early so could manoeuvre the car without a problem so we were facing the exit. There is plenty... More

The Hillcrest was great; friendly, helpful and professional throughout our stay. Thoughtfully we were allocated a ground floor room as we were travelling with our dog. Rooms were well-appointed and beautifully clean. Breakfast was great; really good quality bacon and sausage and perfectly cooked poached egg! Piping hot too! The location is wonderful; great views over the Arboretum and a... More
