We stayed overnight whilst visiting daughter at uni. It is a lovely hotel, spotlessly clean, bright and welcoming. The breakfast was very good and nothin was to much trouble. It is a really beautiful building which mixes the old with the new really well. I loved all the magnificent lights around the hotel. The staff were really friendly and helpful.... More

I stayed at the hotel for one night with my friend....Lincoln is a half way point in the country for us to meet. Free car parking is attractive when I look for a hotel. The decor was striking....I could tell that the owners had spent a lot of money creating the "wow" effect. The room was great...we just wanted a... More

We were on a business trip near Lincoln and decided to stay overnight and visit the Cathedral. I found Hillcrest via a dog-friendly web site and there was no extra charge for our large companion. We had room 1, right next to the front door so very convenient, and there is a path down the side of the building directly... More

We had a lovely welcome, despute arriving late and the hotel was warm, clean and ideal for our 4 night stay. Yes, the bathrooms are small but the beds are very comfy and the breakfasts were great. I've paid far more for far worse and would happily stay again. Close to the cathedral and the Christmas market the position is... More

Car parking is awkward, suggest you don't bother but park on the road which is fine. Room was small, with rather Heath Robinson desk and fairly basic furnishing. However bed was super comfy with feather pillows and duvet. Bathroom was small, with glass shelf above sink which catapulted my stuff into the sink when I tried to use it. Shower... More

I normally stay in chain hotels which makes them much easier to compare because they are all pretty much the same - the two star Hillcrest therefore is a bit of a departure from what I'm used to. There is limited parking on-site (I was lucky enough to get one of the spaces) but there was plenty of free parking... More

We had never been to Lincoln and as the weather was so good decided on the spur of the moment to make a short three day visit on our new motorbike! We searched for a hotel on Trip Advisor and it seemed perfect as we do not like big chain hotels or cold characterless modern bedrooms. We were not disappointed.... More

Our trip was very last minute, so I didn't have time to research b&b's, and not liking big chain hotels, went with what others had said about Hillcrest Hotel. And they were right about the welcoming and friendly staff. They were extremely accommodating and helpful. The hotel itself is in an ideal location, so close to the centre - not... More

Just spent a very enjoyable weekend in Lincoln and a night at Hillcrest. Would recommend the hotel to you all. Very well positioned for the Castle and Cathedral, easy walking to both. Around this area are lots of lovely shops and bars and both sit at the top of Steep Street which is exactly that - steep! However, we did... More
