Great from the start. After booking the Cathedral View, I telephoned them to see if we could park up earlier than the noted checking in time. I was told immediately that this wouldn't be a problem at all and indeed we could actually check in earlier. On arrival, we were shown to our room which was top class. Being a... More

This is a privately owned building which has been lovingly restored by the present owners. I believe its history goes back to the 12th or 13th C. We stayed in the attic room at the top, which I loved as it was full of old beams with loads of space and character but not good for anyone tall - I... More

The property is perfectly situated for exploring Lincoln: a few minutes' walk from the cathedral and the castle, the museum and the art gallery, and some friendly pubs. The host, Paul, was very welcoming and helpful. Our room was charming and the bed comfortable. Breakfast was excellent - great choice, and we didn't need more than a snack before our... More

Stayed for one night in the attic conversion. Not for the elderly, people over 5 feet high or those with heavy suitcases. Imposible for us to manoeuvre our cases up the winding stairs so had to bring overnight items from the car in a bag. The proprietor was friendly and the hotel position excellent. Breakfast was very greasy and over... More

I stayed here for five nights. The hosts were incredibly relaxed and welcoming, the breakfasts were lovely, and the inn is particularly well located for seeing the best that Lincoln has to offer. The building has a great deal of charm architecturally and in the way it's decorated. I would stay here again. Highly recommended.

This must be a listed building! Despite the restrictions this must place on developing this property Paul has made this a very good B&B as long as you don't mind narrow twisting staircases and uneven floors. Seeing your wardrobe lean forward at an angle is initially disturbing! That said the room was very large, the bed comfy and the breakfast... More

My wife & I stayed at the Cathedral View in Lincoln for 3 nights over the bank holiday weekend & really enjoyed our stay. The location is perfect & although right next to the cathedral , the bells didnt disturb us at all. The room was lovely & the bed very comfortable . The bathroom was shall we say compact... More

This 13th century house is in a great location just yards from the cathedral and castle with a number of good restaurants nearby (the Thai is particularly good) We had a charming room with a second adjoining room making it a suite which was very...

A great guest house which is located in a prime position. The room we had was large with a massive open stone fire place. Everything was clean and the staff were extremely helpful. Plenty of choice at breakfast and all tasted good. The Cathedral and the Castle are literally just around the corner and there are plenty of places to... More
