Plenty of research went into choosing a hotel in Lincoln, a city new to us. Other reviews of The Castle Hotel were glowing and we have to say we agree with them after a very good three night stay. Great location with parking and directly opposite the castle, so a pretty spectacular view. It sits at the top end of... More

We chose this Hotel from the reviews on Trip Adviser and I must say we were very pleased with it. The room was clean and very comfortable. The location couldn't have been better, very close to the Cathedral and Castle. The service was excellent as was the breakfast. My only negative comment would be that the room is quite dark... More

I recently spent four nights at the Castle Hotel, Lincoln. I found the staff to be both helpful and charming, and as I was taking the short break on my own. They contributed greatly and the food towards making my trip pleasurable. That and the lovely county of Lincolnshire itself of course. Michelle Pickering

The bathrooms are nicely appointed with walk in shower. The bed was comfortable as were the pillows. A word of advice if you are a light sleeper like me , -... More

It's obvious to me that the owner of this small boutique hotel cares passionately about his customers requirements and what more can a customer expect. Quality in the bedrooms and presentation in the restaurant and I'm a retired hotelier and critic! I big well done to Paul and thank you from Peter Groves. (thelodgeatruddington.com)
