My wife and I stayed for two nights so that we could attend a graduation ceremony. Location wise I think it would be hard to fault as the hotel is within a few minutes walk of the cathedral and castle. It would also prove advantageous to anyone with mobility issues as it is at the top of the hill in... More

Dear Guest, I am very disappointed to read your review and I do appreciate the time it has taken to leave it. I would like to apologise for the issues you experienced during Breakfast as this is certainly not how we would normally run our Breakfast service. The points raised are being addressed immediately to ensure that they do not... More

Many thanks for a wonderful stay. The staff was amazing and very helpful and caring. The room was warm and comfortable and the breakfast great. Fantastic location too. We'd thoroughly recommend it for a stay in Lincoln.

I stayed at The Castle for one night last Saturday in order to look after my 7month old Granddaughter. The staff were amazingly helpful - parking my car, carrying my Granddaughter up to the room and ensuring at all times that we were comfortable. My Cote Hill Red soufflé was amazing as was the breakfast with locally sourced produce. I... More

If you would like a stay in Lincoln where you are treated properly, I am afraid I have to say it is probably best to avoid this hotel altogether. You can hear everything from the neighbouring rooms, and I had a terrible experience with the service there, with some lasting implications for me. As an aside, the wifi quality is... More

My partner and I stayed here for one night the week prior to Christmas. We pitched up in Lincoln on a whim having suffered the disappointment of having a four night break in Iceland cancelled due to the weather over there making it unfit for the plane to land. I found the Castle on my phone which told me only... More

We are new to Lincoln and had the Castle Hotel recommended for a Wedding Anniversary dinner on the 2nd January. We were disappointed with the food - some of the advertised dishes were not available - two of our party of four ordered turkey for the main course but it was tough and fatty when it arrived - we sent...

This is our second visit to this hotel having previously stayed in a traditional room which was excellent. This time we visited for a New Years eve break and stayed in the Tennyson junior suite which was beautifully presented and clean. Staff were extremely friendly and accommodating throughout our stay and the breakfast delivered to our room was generous and... More

Visited for a nights peace and quiet with mrs.dexter and after some initial issues with parking Chloe on reception went out of her way so we could get a space for our stay. We had to park slightly away from the main building and because of this Chloe upgraded our room to what has to be the most stunning apartment... More

We booked one night at the Castle Hotel during the Christmas market a couple of weeks ago and from the very moment of booking to leaving the hotel, the staff were lovely. We booked a family room for my husband and I and young daughter, they gave her a simple pull-out bed which was adequate, if a little lumpy. Our... More

Was at the hotel for the week, it was clean and quiet but it was nothing more than a basic hotel not reaching the normal standard i would expect for a holiday inn. Breakfast buffet was ready at 7am, but they provided 630am as the starting time. The bacon was cold each day, eggs were from a mix and overall... More
