Lovely hotel, within great proximity to the train station. Although a little noisy at times if you keep the window closed it's fine. The food was AMAZING!! After 2 long 11 hour days of auditing I headed back to the hotel and ordered room service and I was not disappointed. With a Waitrose and the train station just a few... More

Stayed last year. My wife and I loved it so much that we are excitingly looking forward to next weekend as we are staying again. Room was fantastic with lovely big bed. Food was faultless.

Stayed at the Great Northern after a last minute training day and was pleasantly surprised! I only booked at the last minute and was slightly worried as I had never stayed here before- so was really pleased with the location- literally opposite the train station which was really convenient!!!

Lucy It is a pleasure to have such a positive review. The staff work extremely hard to make sure that all our guests are taken care of, and they always will go that extra mile to do this. Our location is a plus point for the hotel, and considering its location the noise levels are not distracting. I do hope... More

Waiting for a train at the station decided to gor for a quick pint. I got served reasonably quickly, but after around 10 minutes, 4-5 other customers arrived for a drink. After 10 minutes waiting for any kind of service (no staff around), we rang the hotel & asked if anyone was working!

DCMLincolnshire thank you for your comments, I am pleased you were served but disappointed the barman left the other guests for such a wait. I would like to get to the bottom of this as this is not our normal level of service, so please email me on shaun@gnhotel.co.uk with the date and time you were in the bar thanks.... More
