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.

Second visit this year and already planning a third later this year.Rooms/Ensuites always clean and well provisioned and the breakfasts are simply superb.As indicated by previous reviewers it is very convenient for Cardiff Centre, but equally it is only a short bus ride ( Service 32 bus stop other side of road ) from the must see St.Fagans Folk Museum.

Stayed at Lincoln House with friends for one night on a return trip to Cardiff to see the play War Horse (absolutely fantastic production). We loved our first stay here so it was an obvious choice to recommend to friends (always fraut with disaster!) and once again the hotel did not disappoint. It remains ideally placed for the city centre,... More

What a lovely hotel, one of the best I've stayed in so far! I originally booked two nights for business but then cancelled one night. That was before I arrived! I wish I stayed the extra night! Very friendly and helpful staff, amazing views, very clean, food great, what more could you ask for. Would definitely go back on business... More

We booked our two nights at the Lincoln House based on the terrific Trip Advisor reviews. The location was really a plus, in a quieter residential part of town. We loved the easy access to the beautiful river side walking path, leading to Bute Park which was glorious and in full bloom in June. As noted by so many of... More

I stayed here with a colleague for one night to attend a meeting in Cardiff. I had previously stayed here a couple of years ago and since then it has had a bit of a makeover. The check in was very straight forward with the chap at reception giving us both the WiFi code and front door access code. The... More

We normally go to this delightful hotel at least 3 times a year, for Welsh National Opera performances in Cardiff. But this year we had to miss a Winter visit owing to illness However I was delighted that friends took over our booking, as I would not want to let down these lovely people who are always so helpful. We... More
