Lincoln House is really a bed and breakfast, but is in a good location and very handy for city centre, castle and nearby park. Room was spacious but somewhat dated and very hot, even with window open. Excellent breakfast and very friendly staff.

When I arrived at this hotel with my service dog, the owner refused to let us have the room we booked, and put us into a room with a bed and a sofabed, instead of the two beds that we had reserved. Then they told me they would charge me an extra 20 pounds a night for the service dog.... More

At the time of booking there was no indication of a service dog accompanying yourselves. Our policy is service dogs only. Which we have always accommodated, If you had mentioned a service dog was going to be with you, at the time of booking, then the reception staff would not have hesitated to accept your service dog. Our sincere apologies... More

We stayed here for four nights on a short break to Cardiff. We were in room 209 on the first floor. The bedroom was very acceptable with a superking bed and plenty of space. There was only a small wardrobe in the room and, unless you're like us and live out of a suitcase, it would have been difficult to... More

My daughter and I stayed for three nights. This is a lovely guesthouse. It took just 20 minutes to walk into Cardiff centre through a pretty park. It had everything we needed. The breakfasts were lovely too. When booking this hotel it's worth bearing in mind there can be lots of steps to get to a room. The rooms are... More

This hotel was a marvellous delight. The Victorian house has been tastefully decorated and refurbished to the highest standard. We had a twin room with two ample beds decorated in shades of gray and white. The shower was the best water pressure we have experienced in some time. There is no lift, so if stairs are an issue, plan accordingly.... More

I struggled to find a hotel at the right price and with room availability. The Lincoln seemed the best option at the time and I'm pleased to say it was a great find. It was easy to find and there was no problem parking. I had a really nice 'small double room' (which was not really small) with a lovely... More

Stayed here for the weekend in the fourposter bedroom. Beautiful room....large, comfortable, spotlessly clean with good ensuite bathroom. Nice large leather chesterfield sofa in the walk - in bay window. A very comprehensive breakfast with friendly and helpful service. The only negative was having to wait for a table on a busy Saturday morning. Highly recommended.

Wonderful place to stay, close to the park and the centre of Cardiff. Friendly and very helpful staff, great breakfast with plenty of choice. Wonderful lounge room to while away a few hours. Will stay there again next time we are visiting Cardiff

Fantastic hotel to stay in Cardiff, everything was perfect. Friendly and helpful staff, hearty Welsh Breakfast and plenty of it. Homemade Welsh Cakes and laverbread to sample! Room 206 was fab with its four poster bed. Small bar for a beverage after a busy day exploring the Welsh capital. Parking on site, else on side road if it's a busy... More
