Stayed for one night with my husband for my birthday. The room was lovely and clean and the bed was very comfy. The breakfast was also lovely and the owner was extremely helpful. It isn't far from the Cathedral quarters. Would stay there again.

After forgetting to book my usual hotel, I ended up booking a midweek night at this hotel. What a peach! Forget "hotel" this is like visiting your favourite relative in the city. A private home turned small hotel, this really is a great place to stay. Clean, ultra-friendly and fantastic home cooking, this is extended family, not an amorphous city... More

This is a fab hotel in a really central location. The room was nicely decorated, clean and with a comfy bed. The breakfast was delicious and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again.

The Hillcrest sells itself on its good location about 15 minutes' walk from Lincoln Cathedral and castle. (Though be aware it is a stiff walk up-hill to get there...) It is very quiet after dark, as several nearby buildings belong to Lincoln Minster School, and with the Arboretum on the downhill side of Lindum Terrace, it can feel a bit... More

Very friendly at reception, good value and clean. My room was well decorated and had a comfortable bed and a good shower. Good breakfast as well. I would happily stay here again when visiting Lincoln. I have no suggestions for improvement.

Stayed at this hotel once, found it so good that I have stayed several times since. Rooms on ground floor appear larger other floors, good wi fi signal and desk, good room facilities. Both breakfast and dinner is good, however on days when no dinner is available Lincoln centre is about a 10 minute stroll. Just one word of warning... More

Stayed with my husband and in-laws during the bank holiday weekend. We all found the hotel to be attractively decorated, clean and comfortable, with friendly but not in-your-face owners. The rooms were spacious enough, and the beds deserve a special mention for being incredibly soft and comfy! Breakfast was standard fare, not mind-blowing but nice, and served with a smile... More

Stayed 2 nights whilst on work. I was given a lovely room overlooking the garden and the adjacent Arboretum. Good comfortable bed. Breakfast was very good and satisfying. I like the garden seating area. Relaxing. Very friendly owner and staff.

Don't be put off by the 2 star rating. The hotel is excellent and worth a full 5 stars. The hotel is family run, clean, comfy and dog friendly. We received a warm welcome and the staff were polite and friendly throughout our two day stay. The hotel is 5 mins away from the cathedral and city centre. The hotel... More
