My wife and I booked Cathedral View at the recommendation of friends who had stayed there. Not only does it have immediate access to the cathedral and castle precincts, but it also has parking! Not to be underrated in the congested city centre. The owners, Paul and Christina, are very friendly and welcoming; and they cook a very nice breakfast!... More

What an interesting find! A genuinely warm reception at breakfast from our host. Without this conversation we wouldnt have visited the Museum of Lincolnshire Life - which would have been a big miss. THe car parking was useful, if not interesting to get out of when surrounded by several very large cars in the morning. Our room, room 2 ,... More

We had an historically good stay at The Cathedral View Guest House this week and can fully recommend it if history is your thing. It is in an excellent position in the centre of old Lincoln for visiting the Castle and the Magna Carta exhibition and the magnificent Cathedral, all on the level until you reach the top of Steep...

Lovely weekend away in Lincoln. Very steep hill but always felt accomplishment on getting to the top! Plenty of nearby places to eat. Staff were very knowledgeable about the area. Room 4 was lovely, huge shower. Don't expect a lie in as cathedral bells start ringing at 7am but that didn't bother us!! Hope to come back soon :)

We stayed here for 4 nights at the beginning of August 2015.Situated 50 to 100 yards from the Cathedral this is an ideal spot to explore Lincoln especially the Bailgate area with its many pubs, restaurants and independent shops. Eastgate is one way traffic past the guest house and can only be approached from the Bailgate end and the entrance... More

The breakfast is wonderful with the usual full English and a choice of cereals etc. The staff are friendly and helpful already planning for next year. The guest house is close... More

We stayed in the family room over the gateway which is a very good option if you're travelling with 1 or 2 children. The people (Tracy) were very helpfull and she could tell us more about the sights in town than the tourist information. Breakfast was splendid, shower good, Although a bit more space in the bathroom would have been... More

We have stayed here on 5 separate occasions and always made to feel welcome by Paul and his staff. The building is lovely with lots of character and always spotless. Really good breakfast. Great location and close to good bars and restaurants
