As someone who is naturally critical, I could find NOTHING wrong with this hotel! It was clean, comfortable, and in an ideal location with adequate parking on site. The staff were ALL excellent with superb attention to detail - very attentive with ready smiles. We didn't eat dinners in the hotel, nor lunches, but the breakfasts were wonderful. We would... More

Lovely location, newly refurbished. Friendly, efficient staff, marvellous food. Very luxurious top floor room, with a bathroom the size of a small house. We couldn't have asked for a better weekend break - thank you to all the staff

Located right in the centre of the Cultural Quarter with its own car park this hotel offers everything you need for a city break whether it be for one night or longer. Very pleasant welcoming and helpful staff is a good start. Being escorted to your room on arrival is a nice touch. Our room had views of Lincoln's magnificent... More

My partner and I spent two nights at the Castle Hotel. We chose it on the basis of excellent Tripadvisor reviews, its central location and the availability of free parking on site. In all respects it did not disappoint. The hotel is a former Victorian schoolhouse, tastefully renovated in a modern "boutique" style. Our room was clean and comfortable, if... More

We stayed here recently and regret to say that it was only for one night. We were offered an upgrade to a de-luxe room for an extra £10, which we took, so this is the only room we can comment on. To start with, it had a name instead of a number which felt very posh! While the room was... More

We just had quick bar meal here on weekend break in Lincoln and found it to be very enjoyable. It was quiet and staff were very pleasant and attentive. My partner had the scampi and I had the Caesar salad with a lovely cool pint of bottled Black Sheep ale .. bliss!

Food was fantastic, well presented and cooked to perfection. Great flavours going on too. The staff were brilliant; both helpful and friendly. We felt we could have a laugh with them and not feel uncomfortable. The dining room is very pleasant; formal enough if you wanted it to be yet still a relaxed atmosphere. Will definitely come back.

We selected this hotel as it is quite close to the cathedral and castle and does not require a steep climb to visit these locations and the many delightful shops in what is known as the cathedral quarter. The car parking area is tight but if all else fails there is a pay and display 25 yards away from hotel.... More

My husband booked The Castle Hotel for 3 nights (19-22 June 2015) for a birthday treat for me. This hotel looks lovely from the outside, & is in such an ideal location right in the historic, cultural quarter - less than a 5 minute stroll to the Castle & Cathedral, Steep Hill and shopping area. Our room was on the... More
