The owners have worked hard to make this wonderfully placed boutique hotel look and feel ultra modern and it is certainly very comfortable indeed. It's in the heart of old Lincoln and only a short walk from the Cathedral. But there's just something missing and it's that final touch of attitude. When we enquired about getting a drink at the...

We stayed for one night on a Saturday evening. The location of the hotel is ideal for walking down the cobbled main street between the castle and cathedral, leading to the many shops, bars and restaurants. The room was very clean, comfortable and nicely presented. The bar was small and the drinks expensive, but there is a bar across the... More

This is a fine dinning restaurant where the front of house staff have been trained to appreciate the importance of complimenting the fine creative work done in the kitchen. The Menu ( 28/03/14) was interesting , slightly different, not weird and included excellent but not excessive choices. Staff were well informed, polite, courteous and reactive to enquiries. The restaurant management... More

Excellent location "uphill" so no need to negotiate Steep Hill every day to get to the cathedral and castle - just a couple of minutes away. Really lovely food from "Reform Restaurant" - fantastic breakfast with great choice ranging from croissants / brioche to full english, omelette Arnold Bennett, and varieties of bacon / sausage sandwiches / eggs on toast,...

Stayed just one night at the Castle at Lincoln in the Courtyard apartment. Glad that we did. Apartment was well equipped for self catering although we stayed b and b. Staff were excellent. Apartment was chilly on arrival but was soon sorted after request to staff. Apartment had dedicated parking for 2 cars which is a bonus. Parking in Lincoln... More

We came to visit friends and stayed only one night but we wish we could've stayed longer! The room was decorated to a high standard,with a memory foam mattress, spacious wardrobe and tea, coffee and hot chocolate available with some delicious biscuits on the side. There were windows on all sides with beautiful views of the castle and cathedral over... More

We had a 4 night stay in February 2014. Our first night was spent in the disabled adapted court yard bedroom, which was very well fitted out and much larger than other adapted rooms we have stayed in. The hotel staff went the extra mile to make out stay restful and worry free, for example allowing us to charge my... More

This hotel is set amongst the finest of backdrops in English cities with a cathedral and castle close by. The historical pedestrianised area around the hotel predates Romans, but there are many lovely houses and shops, cafes pubs and restaurants nearby if you wish to look. Good beer and wine albeit expensive.
