My husband and two adult children were travelling to Cardiff from Canada to attend a family wedding over the Easter weekend. After considerable research online, and given our dislike of hotel chains, we chose the Lincoln House. What a superb choice - lovely bedrooms, comfortable lounge, excellent full breakfast included in the rate and first class customer service! All this... More

We spent just one night in this hotel, wanting to be near to the city to walk in and back in the evening. Our room was very pleasant, traditional in style to fit in with the original features of the building. The en-suite was very modern in contrast, I like that! The whole place was immaculately clean. We had time... More

Frustratingly, there is no way to leave an email message at the front desk for an overseas guest who is travelling lightly without a laptop! Most annoying! It should be listed under Contact. I find this very disappointing.

Stayed for four nights. A change from the usual chain hotels. The staff were great. Very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The room was good. Not the best due to lack of attention to detail. Broken lamp shade and a visible wiring connection for a light rather close to shower! The water pressure in the shower was fantastic... More

We stayed for just one night having escaped without the kids! Lincoln House is a lovely place and so much better than the big chain hotels. Friendly service and happy to advise on where to go and how to get there. The standard of the room was very high, it was comfortable and had character. Breakfast was very good with... More

I agree with all the positive comments about this lovely hotel. Full of character and charm, and spotlessly clean. I loved the high quality linen and comfortable bed. Having stayed at very good large chain hotels recently where breakfast was a D I Y affair, queuing for coffee and the toast maker, I appreciated the excellent service at Lincoln House.... More

Within walking distance of Cardiff city centre and close to the river Taff set within Sophia park (?) the Lincoln House was the perfect location for our city break. It has an elegant feel to it and the room was at a high standard and exceeded our expectations. Breakfast was included in the price and included a variety of fresh... More

Stayed for three nights to go to the RHS Garden Show. Hotel reception very welcoming and efficient. They offered to help carry our bags upstairs to our room which was very considerate. The double room at the rear of the hotel was clean, spacious with all the usual facilities. The bathroom had obviously recently been refurbished and was of a... More

Have just spent this past weekend at the Lincoln House Hotel in Cardiff. Absolutely loved the Inn and its location on Cathedral Road. Beautiful Area. A bit of a walk into the city center but in good weather it's lovely. You can go along Cathedral Road or through the park which makes the walk very nice. We had to do... More

Lovely clean, well kept B&B. 20 min walk through park or road gets you to Cardiff city centre, Millenium stadium or castle. You can also get boat from park to Cardiff Bay. Room was comfortable with nice ensuite. Lovely breakfast served by friendly staff and private car parking too. Couldn't fault it!
