We were greeted by a really pleasant young lady Agne, The room we stayed in was immaculately clean, a good size with a large en-suite. We were given a slip to complete, requesting our choice of...

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

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
