This is a lovely luxury B&B in a medieval building (tastefully modernised) very near the cathedral in Lincoln. It is conveniently placed for all the 'uphill' attractions - the castle, shops and restaurants. Paul, Christina and Tracey were welcoming and efficient. The room was lovely - kingsize bed, ample storage space, stone fireplace, and a luxury modern bathroom with large... More

Had a great night here, the place oozes history and is tastefully modernised in a perfect location for exploring old Lincoln. Paul and his staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome and nothing seemed too much trouble. Breakfast was excellent, cooked well with good quality ingredients. Everything was clean and well presented, room 4 was quirky... More

We spent a fabulous couple of nights at this guest house. Could not fault it. Friendly and helpful hosts. Lovely comfortable room in the attic with wonderful shower. Breakfasts amazing. Lovely location next to the cathedral and close to the castle.

Just spent another fabulous weekend at cathedral view, it is clean and tidy and Paul and his staff are very friendly and welcoming,nothing is to much trouble for them. It is ideally situated for the castle and cathedral and the town centre is only a short stroll ,we will be back very soon.

On my frequent business trips to Lincoln I always try to get a room at Cathedral View. I feel so comfortable here on my own. Paul always goes out of his way to make you feel welcome. There are plenty of places to eat and drink and excellent Indian Restaurant just next door if you don't want to go too... More

Our family of four had two very comfortable and beautiful rooms in the Cathedral View bed and breakfast in Lincoln. Breakfasts were delicious and the location was without equal. Children were made warmly welcome, and there are excellent restaurants within a short walk.

This guest house is located on the North side of East Gate. It is not really possible to see the Cathedral (due to the properties on the opposite side of the street) but it could not be closer. The entrance to Minster Yard is literally just a few metres away. There is a small car park, approached through an extremely... More

This guesthouse offers a very central location for exploring the beautiful city; everything is in walking distance. It has a bit of a "cathedral view" but only the very top of the towers so the name is a bit misleading, though if you read their website carefully, they are not claiming anything other than views of the towers. The room... More

Perfect for historic Lincoln. Lovely old building with plenty of character and a view of the cathedral from bed, what mor could you want. Spotless, great breakfast and wonderful hospitality. Definitely will be back.

What a delightful place - perfect location, welcoming host, lovely room, delicious breakfast. Our bathroom (wet room) would not have disgraced a five star hotel. The bed was incredibly comfortable, and we really didn't want to leave. Just a one night stay this time around, as we were going to a concert at the Cathedral - we will make it... More
