As always this hotel rates as one of the highest in Lincolnshire, the staff provided us with such a warm welcome, like meeting old friends again, the evening meal was a gastronomic delight accompanied by wonderful attentive service. Gibson room again was like sleeping with 'gods'. A great stay in a truly unspoilt location, thank you once again.

We stayed in the Franklin, a lovely room with windows on three different sides. They're not all huge windows but still it's refreshing to have a room where you aren't sharing walls with several other guest rooms. There was a nice view of Lincoln Castle across the way, and I should mention now that The Castle Hotel is ideally situated.... More

We stayed at The Castle for one night only but from the booking to checking out our stay was great. We had a lovely small room with wonderful views of the cathedral. Our evening meal was absolutely delicious and breakfast was also superb. The staff were friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Lincoln.

We visited the Castle Hotel in Lincoln for a couple of nights, as part of a Birthday treat for my wife. We arrived early and was allowed to park the car while we visited the local attractions surrounding the hotel. (The Cathedral, Bailgate, and the outside of the Castle, which was unfortunately closed during our visit) Every single person we... More

We stayed at The Castle for a couple of nights in mid-February 2015. We had stayed here several years ago before the refurbishments. Our room was the Tennyson, on the top floor, labelled as a Junior Suite. My partner and I stay at a good number of very high quality hotels. Good accommodation and great food is our 'thing'. As...

For mums 83rd birthday I treated her to a couple of nights in the castle hotel ... It's location is great with views of the cathedral and the castle. The accommodation was cosy well appointed and good beds. We were in the courtyard room as mother can't do steps. The food at breakfast and dinner was amazing. I would like... More

We have just spent 2 nights in this hotel. Our room was very clean and comfortable with a well stocked hospitality tray, great shower and comfy bed. The view from our window was a bonus overlooking the castle. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast offered a wide choice freshly cooked. I Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Stayed here for just 1 night on Valentine's night as a surprise for my husband. From my initial contact with the hotel via e-mail all the way through to our departure, everything was dealt with fantastically & nothing was too much trouble. We were given an upgrade at check in to the Castle Cottage & this is a great self-contained... More

Castle Hotel is an excellent all-round hotel. The rooms are nice and tidy, the staff are very helpful, polite and friendly. The location is up the hill but very nice and quiet and 5 minutes away from the heart of the city. highly recommended.

Right next to the castle itself, so you have all of historic lincoln, and the shops of steep hill, within walking distance. We opted for a Deluxe room, which was clean, spacious and well furnished. Bed was very comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful, didn't mind us checking out a bit late. My only complaint is, the wifi signal was... More
