Small enough to feel more like a bed and breakfast, the Lincoln House Hotel is quaint and feels old fashioned but with clean rooms and stylishly modern bathrooms. The staff were incredibly helpful, breakfast was delicious and fresh, and the beds were extremely comfortable. It is a bit far from the attractions in Cardiff and the train station (a good... More

We stayed for four nights and enjoyed the proximity of the hotel to the city centre and the cafes/bars/restaurants in Pontcanna. We had a room at the very top of the hotel which was exceptionally quiet and the stairs gave a good workout after a wonderful breakfast each morning. The hotel was very clean and the availability of secure parking... More

We chose this accommodation based on the positive reviews, website photos, price and location. The free wifi and free parking were pluses, the breakfast staff were friendly and the food was good. Location was handy to laundromat and good restaurants, but we had to find these ourselves on the internet. However, we were taken aback by the curt receptionist on... More

We stayed for three nights in Cardiff during our recent trip to Wales. I had looked for an affordable accommodation not too far from city centre and with free parking, internet and breakfast. Lincoln House ticked all the boxes. It is a pleasant boutique hotel with all the modern amenities and tastefully decorated. Car park can be quite a tight... More

I have stayed here twice and it's a fantastic hotel. Always very clean and we love the proximity to the city too. The breakfasts are fab and it's great value for money. The large double rooms are exceptional value.

If you are looking for a boutique hotel in walking distance to Cardiff city centre but away from the maddening crowds then Lincoln House is highly recommended. We booked the Apartment for three days and had a really relaxing time. Slept well. Enjoyed hearty Welsh breakfasts and even a few G&Ts in the hotel bar. The Lincoln House Hotel is... More
