We had an overnight stay here on a recent visit to lincoln. The hotel is perfectly placed to visit all of Lincoln's beautiful sights. The staff at the hotel were very efficient and attentive. The car park is tight but it is free so no complaints. The rooms are modern and stylish as are the bathrooms. The breakfast was delicious... More

Matt at the Castle got us out of a spot. Our normal hotel let us down at short notice and he stepped in an saved the day. So glad he did. The Castle is a superb hotel. Well appointed, very relaxed and with the best staff. The restaurant is superb - do have dinner there. We will be returning.

The Castle Hotel is centrally positioned only minutes from the castle and cathedral. Car parking is available on site. The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. Our room (the Bader room) was small but well-appointed and spotlessly clean with a good shower in the en-suite bathroom (over the bath). Breakfasts were excellent; the cooked breakfast menu included not just a... More

For Lincoln this hotel has a very good location. Unfortunately because we had some heavy luggage and there was no lift I reserved a courtyard room. I cannot comment on the quality of other rooms but the quality of the one we got insures that we will not return. The "courtyard is an open parking area at the back of... More

Stayed in the Franklin room. Was clean, tidy and had a lovely outlook. Hotel was great. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast had lots of choice. We didn't eat in at night. There's no lift which didn't matter to us but might to some people and you can hear the bells chime hourly - which again we were happy with... More

We have just returned home after a weekend in Lincoln staying at the Castle Hotel with friends. It is in a great location and all our rooms had views either over the Cathedral or Castle. The rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet, although we could have done with extra pillows. We did not eat in the restaurant in the evening,... More

Beautiful Georgian hotel with reasonable rates. Central with bus stops very near Come out of hotel and turn right onto Connelly street (1 minute) Go left across the street and walk straight down Connelly into the centre for shops, Nassau and grafton streets. Keeping straight from hotel you would come to the bridge taking you across the Liffey to temple... More

We stayed in the Gibson suite for 2 nights weekend of 8-10 May. Great room, really homely and comfortable. The room had everything we needed. Breakfast was perfect, full English first morning. The homemade muesli is amazing. The second morning ordered bacon sandwich with extras which was not a problem even though not on menu. Good quality ingredients used, really... More
