Had a one night stay in Lincoln. Hotel is very well located near the Castle and the magnificent Lincoln Cathedral. The area nearby is interesting with lots of local shops and pubs and cafes. The hotel is very comfy, our room overlooked the rear with a view of the cathedral, fortunately the clock chimes stop at night!!! Breakfast was great,... More

We stayed one night in a junior suite. The only drawback for some would be that the room is up some 3 flights of stairs with no lift. However it was very comfy with views over the castle. Breakfast was very tasty with seemingly fresh/ good quality food. Parking is somewhat tight.

First time in Lincoln...had a great stay at the Castle Hotel. Easy check in and nice touch being accompanied to the room....Stayed in the Alexander Room which was really comfortable with a nice view of the cathedral. Superb breakfast in the morning...All of the staff are fantastic and are a credit to themselves and to the hotel. Will definitely return... More

I hosted a dinner for over 60 colleagues here. Delivering quality food at scale and with intimate yet unimposing service is no easy task. The Castle achieved it with aplomb! Every dish was tasty, well presented and cooked to perfection. Fillet of beef, cod loin, ham hock, monkfish, chocolate tart, cheese board, all top drawer. Highly commended.

We usually stay at The Lincoln but we were meeting friends and they liked the look of the Castle Hotel and using Booking.com we were able to stay on a bnb plus dinner inclusive deal. Good reception and the room well appointed. Although a little bijou it was fine for 1 night. Pillows could have had a bit more life,... More

We had a really nice one night stay at the Castle. Staff are really helpful, room was lovely - immaculately clean and nice decor. Terrific shower, too. And very nice breakfast. I recommend the Eggs Benedict!! If I was passing Lincoln again I wouldn't hesitate. It's a very convenient location too - 5 mins walk from the Castle & the... More

Stayed at this hotel on our first visit to Lincoln with friends, all the staff were very friendly especially Chloe who was a delight, and Hannah in the restaurant who was very nice indeed. Our room was a bit on the small side but adequate. The pillows on the bed could have been better, they were very thin, no complimentary... More

Comfortable room although not large. Clean bathroom with good shower. Decor slightly dark. Main restaurant very good although pricey. Bar snacks good value and also delicious. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay but the pillows were rather thin and lumpy.
