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!

We visited on Saturday 26th July for my partner's birthday. We went for the Italian Taster Menu!! Wow!! We loved our journey around the regions of Italy. The food and wine were exquisite. The staff were excellent and well-informed!! Nothing was too much trouble!! A really lovely evening!!

Have stayed here several times. Quite good location average rooms and good breakfast were available. However at my last stay we were put into the attic room behind a faux bookcase mural on the landing. This is not a good room. Im not sure how it even passes safety inspection. The room is accessed by a very steep narrow starcase... More

Dear please note that when YOU booked the room on the website IT CLEARLY states that the room is an attic room with steep flight of stairs and a private bathroom on a different floor. Sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. Regards More

First off parking, Lincoln doesn't seem to like cars so parking is tricky. You can park for two hours outside during the day and we did see a car park a short distance away towards the castle but it looked short stay. On arrival you step off the road into a restaurant which was fortunately empty as we saw no... More
