Our weekend stay was principally to visit historic Lincoln and the Magna Carta exhibition, but it coincided with the British Cycling Road Race Championships in the city. This meant the area around the hotel was busy and many of the nearby public car parks were closed. After a slight hiccup trying to get into the hotel car park (which is... More

We have just come home from a truly wonderful weekend in Lincoln staying at the Castle Hotel. I cannot praise this hotel enough. Our room was super with all the facilities needed to make a great weekend. The staff were fantastic catering for all our needs with a cheerful smile, nothing was too much trouble for them. There is no... More

Lovely staff, comfy room, great breakfast and superb restaurant. The location is perfect and I can recommend relaxing in the courtyard at the front with the sun beaming down on you. If there was a tiny fault would be the size of the room but as we weren't sitting in it all day it didn't seem to matter

We stayed in Lincoln overnight on our way home from Northumberland. Our reason for booking this hotel was its city centre location with parking. The location proved to be perfect being just a few steps from the Castle and Cathedral area with its interesting shops and wide selection of restaurants. Our room had been recently refurbished and was very comfortable... More

I can only echo the reviews of other guests, this is a lovely hotel. Location is fantastic, a few minutes away from the castle, cathedral and independent shops/cafes. It's also worth pointing out that whilst it's very close to these tourist attractions, it's on a relatively quiet street. Our room was above the entrance but we had no issue with... More

Really great location, nice little outside area for few drinks in the sun with a view of the castle. The per glass price for fizz it very expensive for a house champagne, much better value to buy a bottle if you are going to share a few glasses. Really lovely staff and great service, the food is very nice too.

This proved to be perfect for a short stay in Lincoln. Situated within yards of the city's two main highlights (cathedral and castle) the recently refurbished hotel offers modern, clean accommodation and we can't speak highly enough of its mostly young staff, all of whom were polite, efficient, friendly and smartly turned out. Breakfast was excellent, as was dinner. Visitors... More

Stayed recently for two nights in the Baden room which is a deluxe room. It was nicely furnished including a modern bathroom. Compared to other hotels we have stayed in we would say the room was a little on the small side. The hotel is centrally located and within easy walking distance of the main attractions, shops and restaurants. The... More

I have been fortunate enough to stay at some top-class hotels through work but I have to say none have matched the quality, warmth and general desire to help of the staff at The Castle. Without exception (and usually there is the odd surly staff member or too often only an odd happy helpful individual) everybody went out of their... More
