We stayed in the hotel for a weekend break with some friends. We loved it, we stayed there last year for my birthday and we loved it so much we went back this year . If i have to say anything bad about it , it would be that the bedrooms were very very hot and that was with a... More

We stayed at this hotel to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were greeted by a friendly quietly spoken receptionist who was very welcoming. We asked for a late checkout and even though they didn't normally do them on a week day they didn't hesitate with allowing us one absolutely free of charge. We were shown to a beautiful room called... More

Recently stayed at the Castle Hotel for a weekend break in Lincoln and to attend the nearby Waddington airshow. We had not been to Lincoln before so did not know the hotel from personal experience at all but we were not disappointed in any way shape or form. From the minute we arrived to when we left we received polite... More

The Castle Hotel has been excellently modernised and has views to the cathedral and castle. Its location in the heart of the old city cannot be beaten. We arrived early, but were able to leave our bags so that we could go off for a wander before coming back to check-in. Room was modern, clean and comfortable and looked out... More

Just got back. Really good base for a stay in Lincoln. May be a hill climb too far for elder or disabled City explorers. But it is only stones throw from the Cathedral, castle, tourist shops and restaurants. The main shops are accessible via a pretty steep hill. Very friendly and helpful staff. Better than average breakfast. Get there as... More

Calling on spec a couple of hours before we booked the junior suite - a stunning room overlooking the cathedral and castle and since it was nearly 8pm by the time we arrived, decided for dinner. The menu ws fresh and varied and tasty, and the staff helpful and courteous. The whole experience was faultless with the owner even moving... More

We received a warm welcome and continued to be impressed throughout our two-day stay. The location itself, close to the cathedral and castle, is fantastic. Our room (in the courtyard) was tasteful, clean and well proportioned. The bed was very comfortable and the shower room was luxurious. The staff were friendly and knowledgable. Overall the place seemed well managed and... More

Spent a few days in Lincoln, mainly to visit the Cathedral and Castle. Thoroughly enjoyed both, although the Castle was undergoing refurbishment so was disappointed that we could not see the whole site. However, will consider coming back next year for it's anniversary. Stayed at the Castle Hotel for the first time. Will definitely stay here again when we re-visit... More

We have just spent two nights in the Castle Hotel (28/29 June). There is only one word to sum up our experience - WONDERFUL. We would recommend it to anyone. On arrival the car parking spaces were full. The lady on reception solved the problem in less than a minute by giving us a Residents' parking permit to use, until... More

We stayed just one night but thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The hotel has been beautifully and tastefully refurbished to a high standard in a contemporary style. The location is excellent being right in the old town, close to the cathedral and castle. Our room was lovely, overlooking the castle it was spotlessly clean and we slept well in the comfortable...
