My boyfriend and I visited Lincoln in August 2014. We really enjoyed our stay at this lovely guest house. Sue was very welcoming and the room was very nice and comfortable and we had a great night sleep. We had a lovely view from our room (room 4). The breakfast was delicious. The location was quite good, was a 10... More

This B&B was ideal in location being at the top of Lincoln, easy walking distance to the cathedral and castle, 10 to 15 mins. For the more adventurous then a walk down steep hill for the shops and restaurants and back after a meal would soon burn off the calories. For those less agile then there is a local bus... More

My first visit to Lincoln & I was initially a little disappointed by the B&B's distance from the action, the center of town. In fact, it's a very easy, level, ten minute walk & perfectly safe at night. I understand David has run the B&B for many years & Sue is relatively new to the trade but she's a natural... More

We came here on Valentines evening during terrible weather. The room was warm as toast and so was our welcome. Room was huge and immaculately presented. Breakfast was super and the location could not be better. A nice easy stroll on the flat to bars and restaurants and then down Steep Hill into town. A little tricky to find and... More

What a lovely place to stay. Welcoming, warm and friendly hosts, comfortable, warm room (bed was lovely and soft) and the breakfast was very tasty and plentiful. Went in December for the Christmas Markets. So pleased that we chose this guest house just a few minutes walk from the markets and just a few more to the town itself. Plenty... More

Have stayed at the Mayfield Guest House before and returned again this year for the Christmas Markets. Since the last time the rooms have been re furbished and are very clean and comfortable. The quality of the breakfast is great and I would thoroughly recommend to anyone going to stay in Lincoln. The Cathedral is a 10 minute walk which... More
