The staff at The Old Palace are incredibly friendly and helpful. They worked with my partner for months to help plan a surprise proposal, and subsequently gave us wonderful service in their beautiful hotel all weekend. Our room in the lodge was impeccable, breakfast was superb and our dinner in the restaurant was gorgeous with wonder service from Hannah. Thank... More

As previous reviews mentioned not well signposted but as locals we knew where it was, however more signs might be appropriate for visitors less aware of location. Beautiful historic building which in places was a little worn but only to be expected given its age. Service on arrival was ok nothing outstanding shown to lift not room and not given... More

The room was lovely and was catered for all my needs even when I had needed something it... More

My friend and I stayed at the Old Palace last weekend, had a little trouble finding it, we came up the wrong street up the hill and had to double back down the hill, but once I put the post code in the sat nav we found it no problem. What can i say ? A fabulous hotel, we were... More

Full of character and charm. We stayed in one of the least expensive rooms for one night trip to Lincoln. It was well proportioned and very pretty with great views and small but fabulous power shower. The drawing room is lovely and the staff were really helpful and very genuine. The only downside was the bed was too firm for... More

We visited Lincoln for the first time ever for a 3 night break at the Old Palace and enjoyed a wonderful stay in amazing surroundings, and with the added benefit of free parking. The Old Palace is located at the top of Steep Hill, literally in the shadow of the magnificent cathedral and combines the character of an elegant old... More

What a delightful hotel, nestling in the shadow of the cathedral. The Old Palace was a residence for visiting clergy, and whilst it is only a three star hotel, the place could not have been friendlier. We will certainly stay there again. Check any internet offers, they will match them.

Have just spent two nights here. We were in the s St Michael's annex. A beautiful converted church. Room very comfortable and well furnished although a little small. Could benefit from a couple of easy chairs but probably too small. We could only sit on the bed. The breakfast was first class as were the staff serving it. Nothing was... More

I booked this hotel to celebrate our wedding anniversary and as a last break before our first baby is born. The hotel did not disappoint. We had a lovely welcome from reception who are really helpful. We stayed in the blue room on the first night which is lovely and spacious with super views of the cathedral. On the 2nd... More

Great Location just below the Cathedral and were able to leave bags as we had arrived early. Went back for Lunch on the downstairs terrace overlooking Lincoln bit of a Sun trap as it was late March and glorious. Room was very disappointing, very cramped and only 1 chair to sit on. Due to the age of the building and... More
