Last week we spent our second stay visiting Lincoln and staying in room 7/the attic room of the Cathedral View GH. If you are tall do watch out for the low beams! It is however a charming room with a view of the Cathedral. The room has a bedroom and a sofa area as well as a spacious shower/toilet room,... More

We have just returned from a 2 night stay here, and have come away thoroughly impressed and intending to return. Firstly, the location of the property is wonderful...at the top of Steep Hill, in an area which has a "village" feel, lots of boutique shops, bars, cafes, and of course the amazing Lincoln Cathedral (and all the historical buildings) across...

Love Lincoln, so much to do that it's great to stay over. Have previously stayed in a 'chain' hotel, but this guesthouse offers so much more!! As a Grade II listed building each room has been beautifully renovated, but has retained its original character, so that you are staying in a piece of Lincoln's history. The staff are welcoming and... More

This guest house is well located in the upper part of the city, close to the cathedral and castle, and to good shops and restaurants. The room was large and we had the benefit of a large sitting room too, (Room 5) but the ensuite is very small and the fuller figure finds it quite cramped! Breakfast is served downstairs... More

This is a charming, comfortable and well run little guest house in a superb location, literally yards from the cathedral, castle, Steep Hill, pubs and restaurants. It has a small car park at the rear but we went to Lincoln but train and bus. The property was once a pub but is now offers excellent accomodation and hospitality as a... More

I always check reviews when choosing somewhere and Cathedral View was every bit as we had hoped for. The Cathedral itself was a little disappointing and Castle closed but our accommadation made it all worthwhile. If staying in Lincoln we would definitely stay at Cathedral View again.

Cathedral view is one of the best places that we have stayed at, my wife and I have just had another super weekend,it is ideally located for all shops ,pubs and restaurants. Castle and cathedral are only 2 minutes walk away, Paul and his staff do a cracking job and we would reccomend to all.

we picked this at random off the internet, and were delighted with our choice. The house was built between 1213 and 1220, when Magna Carta was being signed by bad King John,and we really felt part of the history. Our family room was up in the rafters and ran from the front of the house on Eastgate right to the... More

Well placed within earshot of the glorious bells of Lincoln Cathedral ( If you don't like or are offended by the ages old chiming of the bells go stay elsewhere ). Clean and professional, with a range of rooms retaining the original features of this former public house. A comfortable stay with only the curious lack of any Christmas decorations... More

The previous reviews says it all. Perfect guest house in a beautiful setting. On arrival we were helpfully guided into a parking space and shown to our lovely room by Tracy. Had 2 lovely days seeing the sites, shopping in little independent stores and drinking some lovely local ale, all quite literally on the door step. An evening meal at... More
