We stayed here for two nights during the Christmas Market. The room, although small, as perfect for my wife and I. Warm and clean with tea and coffee making facilities in the room. The shower was great, the water was hot and the bathroom was clean. We had ample wardrobe space and hung our clothes to make the most of... More

i'd made my reservation via LateRooms.com for 29th & 30th Oct and stated that i would arrive approx 9.00pm. I'd driven for 2 hours to find that no-one had left a key for me so i couldn't get into a room. I had no where to stay! - It took me until 11.00 pm before i managed to find alternative... More

I was staying on my own so I can fully understand how couples must have struggled as I had to leave my overnight bag in the bathroom as there was no space in the room. The coffee/tea making facilities are shoved in a tiny corner of the room and the sink in the bathroom reminded me of something you get... More

I've rated this on the generous side - it was better than average but not really "very good". The guesthouse is really well situated - a gentle ten minute walk to Lincoln Castle and Cathedral. The room was spotlessly clean and the bed very comfy, good hot shower. But I think I may have had the same room (14) as... More

Longdales House is a cross between a hotel and B&B ~ it is the Grosseteste University guest lodging. You need to book in advance and collect your key from the university porter (this is not clear on the website). The telephone number is only available until 16h30 The rooms are rather small, as is the double bed. We are not... More

Like Wiki071, we were shocked by the size of the 'double standard' room. We had no room for our two cases and had to move the bed to put them on the floor and then climb over them to get into bed. Management is off site so there was no one to complain to. We stayed two nights and our... More

This is a good location on the BGU campus and a few minutes walk from the Crown Court where I was working. It's a nice enough building and it is spotlessly clean and very pleasantly decorated. However, My single room was minuscule. If I had brought my cat, I wouldn't have attempted to swing it. It did have a nice... More

We booked to stay here Saturday & Sunday night. We arrived Saturday afternoon and although the building looked nice, we were immediately concerned about the noise from the building site not 20 yards away. We checked in and could not believe how small the room was. We had paid extra for a standard double room as opposed to a 'compact'... More

The service was non-existent here. Had to collect the room key from another building and then creep around the house looking for my room. The room was not especially clean. Don't think that I saw a staff member anywhere near the house over the weekend. Would not use again.
