Having stayed in various places in Lincoln over the years visiting family, this is the first time we have stayed at the Tennyson. We wanted to stay close to Sincil Bank football ground as we were going to see a match there in the evening. We found that the Tennyson is literally only a 5 minute walk away max. All... More

I stayed here visiting friends and was extremely impressed by the warm welcome and fantastic service throughout the stay. The lady who greeted us was very friendly, accommodating and helpful. The room was smart, comfortable and had everything we needed. Breakfast was excellent, and you had the choice of specifically ordering what you would like the night before, which was... More

Stayed at The Tennyson on Sat 14th of June 2014. A very pleasant experience from start to finish. Arrived early at 10.45 am. We were allowed to check in immediately. The room and facilities were very good.(Room number 3) The bathroom was large and the bath was luxury. Good car parking on site. We went into Lincoln approx 25 mins... More

Having been let down by nearby South Park guest house we managed to get booked into the tennyson last minute for one nights stay. The communal areas were very nicely decorated. Our room (8) was a good size. The bathroom was lovely and modern however the bedroom itself could do with a bit of a makeover. On saying that, it... More

The staff were lovely, they could not have been more helpful, recommending places to visit and places to eat in the city. Breakfast was spot on, plenty of choices all very delicious. There is parking for 6 cars, so it is a first come first serve basis. We were at the front of the hotel, which is on a busy... More

Couldn't fault anything as such. Hagna, the lady who runs it, couldn't do enough for you. Room was very nice, comfy bed, with a really big bath room. We were on the front, so if your a light sleeper you do need ear plugs as you can here the traffic. We had a really nice breakfast before we left, freshly... More

Not a big fan of B&B’s or guest houses but this place feels more like a hotel, my room was spacious clean and everything looked quite new, beds were also very comfortable. I was fortunate enough to have a room to the rear of the property so had no issues with traffic noise like some other reviewers. Breakfast has to... More

Don't usually stay in B&B's or write reviews but thought this was worthy of a mention as extremely friendly service & a very nice place to stay. We usually stop in hotels but stayed here for 1 night as it was very close to a friends house & were made to feel a lot more welcome than you would in... More

Had a very nice 1 night stay at the Tennyson. The lady who greeted us and cooked us breakfast was the only staff member we saw (possibly the owner judging by other comments?) and she was brilliant! Very friendly, and my omelette in the morning was fantastic. My girlfriend is veggie and they had plenty of things she could have... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Tennyson is situated to the south of the city at the bottom of the High Street on the A15, opposite South Common, a protected area of natural beauty. The A15 is the main route from Norwich to York. This means our location gives easy access to the Wolds, Coast and other places of interest in Lincolnshire. We provide the traveler with a warm and comfortable room and a substantial breakfast. For the tourist, we are 20 minutes walk from the City Centre with all its amenities and attractions. In addition to the colour TV, courtesy tray, telephone charging unit, etc in all rooms, we provide free WiFi. Also, in the guests' lounge there is computer and printer exclusive for guests' use.
