Well situated within very easy walking distance of the cathedral, castle and the top of Steep Hill. Parking is free outside between 5pm and 10 am. During the day there is a 2hr limit but there are car parks close by, though they are not cheap! Room was compact (especially the ensuite) but clean, well-equipped and fine for a night... More

A lovely, relaxing night away in a comfortable, well appointed room. The Old Bakery had lots of quirky, interesting original features like the bread oven in the breakfast room. The five course tasting menu was delicious with excellent wine and service. We enjoyed our cooked breakfast with local produce and excellent coffee. The Old Bakery is in a great location,... More

We have just had a night here and can't recommend it highly enough. The room was gorgeous - yes the ceilings are low but the building is over 200 years old and full of charm and character - and spotlessly clean. The owners were lovely and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was delicious! The location is only a few... More

We stayed for 2 nights as part of a 'buy a gift' deal. The room ceilings were not for anyone above 6 feet tall but it was nice and the en suite was lovely. Random irritation was the radiator which was hardly ever hot but there was an electric heater that warmed the room up in minutes. Breakfasts were more... More

The room was a little small and tired looking but it was comfortable and we had a pleasant stay. Being a mere 5 minute walk from the castle, the location is excellent. What makes this place is the breakfast - the 'Full Lincolnshire' was great and there was a variety of alternatives for those who prefer their breakfasts a little... More

The room was on the small side and quite tired looking but overall it was clean and we both slept well. What makes this place is the breakfast - the 'Full Lincolnshire' is excellent and the choice of cereal and pastries was great too. Overall, a good average.

We have just had our first visit to The Old Bakery restaurant and we can not wait to return. Exceptional, creative, surprising yet unpretentious food and first class service in a wonderful setting. A very special place indeed. If only we lived closer! Thank you to all the team at The Old Bakery.

No problem finding the Old Bakery and a very comfortable room with new bathroom/shower fittings was great. Above all you MUST eat in the restaurant as the food is absolutely fantastic - but remember to leave room for your sumptuous breakfast! Located on the top of the hill this is an ideal location for sightseeing if you are not too... More

We are usually reluctant to stay in B and B's that are above restaurants because of noise, but this was an exceptionally quiet and comfortable place to stay. The room was very well appointed, as was the bathroom. And the breakfast was outstanding --- one of the best we've had in the UK. We'd definitely stay here again!
