“Out of Africa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

We stayed at Eden House in mid-March for a couple of nights visiting Lincoln. The Africa room is one of just two, with a splendid view of the cathedral, and furnished with African carvings and pots. A very comfortable bed in a generously large room, and a good sized bathroom (i.e. shower-room) too. Excellent breakfast. Very handily on the ring road if you're arriving by car, although a 10-15 walk into the old city centre on foot, along the old Roman Road. Some traffic noise audible, but the room is at the back of the house. Very friendly and helpful hosts.

Just spent four nights at Eden House. We stayed in the Africa room which is a lovely comfortable room with a view of the Cathedral. Geoff and Jane were delightful hosts, warm and welcoming. Jane's breakfasts were delicious, all made from locally sourced produced and fresh homemade bread. You could not wish for a nicer B&B.

Just got back from a relaxing stay at Eden House B & B in Lincoln. We stayed in the Africa room and this was really nice and comfortable with lovely touches such as cakes waiting for us and fresh milk in a little fridge. Jane and Geoff were great hosts and we were made to feel very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble and Jane's knowledge of Lincoln was very useful. Breakfast was very good especially the homemade breads and preserves .... yummy!. We will definately go back in the summer and make use of the lovely garden and summer house after a busy day walking around Lincoln.

Just arrived home in Bickinghamshire after spending the night at Eden house and we have to say it is definitely one of the best we have stayed in. Couldn't fault it. From Jane welcoming us at the door right through to us leaving today.It has been a lovely experience. We stayed in the Africa room, the bed was very comfortable, the room itself was clean and very spacious, lovely shower room too. I think the home made cake in the room on arrival is a great touch. Breakfast was lovely too, all the food was either homemade or locally produced. All in all a fantastic place, will definitely be back and will also recommend to friends if they want to visit Lincoln. Keep up the great job Jane and Geoff, we believe your doing things perfect. GIll and John Robinson x

Eden House gave us everything that we needed from a B&B. In particular, we really appreciated the ethically sourced food available, specifically the free range meat and local produce. We were very comfortable and peaceful in the huge bedroom and had plenty of local attractions to entertain ourselves with which were all an easy walk from Eden House, essential for those of us with no car! Situated on the 'up-hill' side of Lincoln, we didn't even have to tackle the dreaded Steep Hill for most of our outings, including the cathedral, castle and the fabulous independent shops, although a bus service is available if you don't fancy the return journey. Couldn't ask for more from an excellent value and incredibly friendly family-run B&B.

We stayed at Eden House in early November 2012. The proprietors are really lovely people whose care and attention to detail is much appreciated. We took both rooms for our family weekend, they are clean, spacious, well appointed and have excellent views of the Cathedral from their elevated position. The choice at breakfast is wide ranging, of high quality and plenty to give you a good start to the day. Eden House is situated on a better quality housing estate, a relatively short downhill walk into Lincoln past the Cathedral and Castle. The walk back uphill is not for the weak or infirm, they should use transport.

Jane H, Owner at Eden House B&B, responded to this review, February 1, 2013
A lovely revue but a couple of comments could be misleading:

The city of Lincoln is built on a hill and Eden House is at the top of the hill with the main tourist attractions including the Cathedral, Castle, museums, galleries, cafes, restaurants, pubs and many independent shops. This historic 'Bailgate' area is a 10 to 15 minute walk from our guest house, entirely on the flat. The railway station, river and shop chains such as M&S are at the bottom of the hill. This hill can be challenging for the elderly but there is a sprinter bus every 15 minutes to the top which is free for pensioners. In addition we offer a complimentary taxi service to and from the station.

Eden House is not part of a housing estate at all. Yarborough Crescent is very easy to find. To the back of our house is a pretty garden which backs onto allotments and to the front of the house is a wide tree lined road with houses which back onto more allotments and playing fields. Eden House has lovely views and is set in its own private plot on a residential road.
