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

We spent one night at this guest house in May. The house has been beautifully refurbished in keeping with its historic significance while providing all the modern amenities. We stayed in the upper floor suite, which consisted of a double bed and a surprisingly comfortable pull-out couch. The room was spacious and very nicely furnished, and the bathroom - while... More

Stayed for 2 nights here. Hosts are very welcoming. Stayed in room 7 top of the house - low ceilings but a gorgeous room with both a double bed and a sofa bed so excellent for friends visiting lincoln or a family. Views of the cathedral and only a couple of minutes walk from the cathedral and castle. Plenty of... More

A very pleasant stay, welcoming and friendly. The added bonus of being able to park a car off road with additional costs made for the trip even more enjoyable. The top room was fantastic,but you need to mind your head as you move around,due to very low beams. One Down side was the breakfast, as most of it was pre-cooked... More

Thanks for your review, pleased you enjoyed your stay. For the benefit of readers we have a private car park that is always included in the price of the booking, there are never any additional costs. ( I think they missed the word 'no' from the sentence as you read it). Our cooked to order bacon and sausages are from... More

I stayed here with my husband and two small children (2 & 5). Whilst it is clearly not a family-hotel (far too nice!), the room we had (number 7) was perfect for a family of four: it had a fabulous, super-comfortable king size bed, and on the other side of a room was sofa bed. And more to the point,... More

Excellent location parking on site, right in the heart of the city. Rooms were spacious and had character. Excellent breakfast and excellent service, very reasonably priced would highly recommend. Only two and a half hours from London.
