A very good hotel in a great location for the cathedral and castle. We stayed in a room with a four poster bed which was really comfortable and gave us a great night's sleep. Reception was extremely helpful and booked us a table in a local Indian restaurant for our evening meal. Would recommend this hotel for business or as... More

Great Hotel in a really nice location! Dogs are allowed and a great park round the corner (below the hotel) for walking. Nice part of the city and ideal for walking in to the Cathedral, castle, pubs (Wig and Mitre good for beer and food and they allow dogs). Also another great pub which allow dogs just through the park,... More

Really lovely hotel, great location - just 10 mins walk from the cathedral but in a quiet area - great view over lincoln We can not rate this hotel highly enough, many places say they are dog friendly but in reality ... this one made us feel really welcome even offering to look in on our dog when we went...

This is an acceptable hotel reasonably close to the City Centre Practicalities : Space for about 5 cars within the hotel grounds but it's a bit tight. But parking on the road outside is unrestricted (though you may not get a space until after 4pm). About 10 mins walk to either the upper or lower parts of Lincoln (it's about... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in September. I had booked over the phone only a couple of days before and asked for a double room. Whilst booking I asked if the room would have a view the gentleman replied that it would. When we got there we were shown to our room. We were not disappointed we had a... More

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.
