Our bedroom and bathroom were spotlessly clean, our only complaint being that the bed was too narrow and springy for our liking. The breakfasts are exceptionally good and served by... More

My family and I stayed one night at the Lincoln in a family room on the ground floor and a double room on the first floor. The hotel is centrally located with an easy walk to the Castle and city centre attractions, and a short drive from Mermaid Key.

Lovely small hotel, family owned . We stayed two nights in June with our son and daughter in-law. Friendly, helpful staff. Private parking. Excellent Welsh breakfast. Walking distance to local pubs and restaurants. Rooms were large and tastefully furnished. If your staying in Cardiff, do yourself a favor and stay here. Jim and Carol Brennan, Florida, USA

We had room 302 which was spacious with a modern bathroom, no air conditioning but the fan provided all that was needed. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of fresh fruit. Parking provided behind the hotel and it is an easy walk to... More

Unfortunately we had to go out too early for breakfast on the first morning but made up for it on the 2nd morning, very nice... More

Spent two nights on an Amazon deal on the four poster bedroom. Lovely bath/shower and large room with sitting area in bay. 20ish minute walk to the train station through a park and by the river. Allow £6 for taxi to the centre. Breakfast was good with plenty of fruit as well as Lava bread and a full Welsh breakfast.... More

This was our fourth visit to this charming small hotel in the last year. Staff are friendly and efficient, bedrooms very comfortable and clean and breakfast is delicious. The owners believe in good service and customers are happy! Will stay here again on one of our frequent visits to see family in the area.
