“Close to city centre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

Stay here twice over the last 12 months mainly on business. Easy to find with parking and close to city center and park. Staff are very friendly and helpful making you feel relax straight away. Lovely breakfast served with minimal delay which is important if you are on a tight schedule.

I arrived at 1 a.m.and was given a very friendly an helpful welcome.

Relaxed staff, and "grand house" feel to the accomadation.

I didn't eat breakfast but was offered fruit to take out when I left in the morning.

Room Tip: My room was roadside and there was some traffic noise.

I think that you would find it hard to find a better small private hotel than this. Close to the city centre, which is a very nice walk on a fine day if you go through the park. The building itself is really nice, with high ceilings and tasteful décor. The tiled hall floor is fantastic. We had a couple of drinks at the small bar in the evening and the prices were good and the service was great. The breakfasts are cooked to order and I must say cooked to perfection. All in all an excellent hotel run by friendly people, delivering very comfortable and clean rooms. Why not 5, well, if I could give four and three quarters I would. My only small issue was that the ground floor room that we stayed in was right next to the street and the traffic noise disturbed a little. Hey but I would stay here any time, and its a load better than the chain hotels. Character it has in bundles. Stay and enjoy, we did.

Room Tip: I think may be the rear rooms would be best for light sleepers.

Thank you for your review, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay at our 3 star family run hotel.

Yes I agree the Victorian black and white tiled floor is beautiful.

It is unfortunate we didn't get that extra star from you, we had no idea that you were disturbed by street noise and had you have told reception, we would only have been to happy to have tried to accommodate you in a back room if available.

Exceptional hotel. Very warm welcome on arrival. The room was quite, comfortable, well laid out and it felt like a home away from home. We had room 303.
Very nice lounge area, lots of reading material and comfortable armchairs. There is also a very good bar area with comfortable seating.

The breakfast was excellent, well cooked , well presented and very tasty!! The attention to detail is second to none, plates were removed promptly, coffee and tea was available throughout the breakfast service and promptly served.
I accidentally knocked my cup of coffee and it spilled onto the saucer, I placed a small napkin on the saucer to absorb the spilled coffee. By the time I went to the buffet and back, a new cup of coffee had been served.

Very centrally located for Cardiff centre, either a leisurely walk or a £5 cab ride. The area is surrounded by beautiful Victorian houses, for those interested in architecture.

In all, a very enjoyable, comfortable and relaxed stay.

Room Tip: Choose rooms at the back of the hotel. From conversations with other guests and our own experience...

We stayed on the weekend of 12-13 October 2013 for a get together to see my cousin for mine and his birthday .We were greeted when we arrived with a very warm welcome and shown to our room where my boyfriend and I were staying . The room was very pleasant and warm and comfortable and had good tea and coffee ,sleeping facilities Breakfast was excellent lots of choice .The hotel is very close to the Park and did not take long to walk into the main area of Cardiff for shopping and look round the Castle there is also a bus stop close by if needed .We would go back and stay in the hotel again it was excellent and we would recommend it to people too .It was recommended by my cousin Mr David Hill as he had stayed there before and he booked it for us as well . It was an excellent choice and we would highly recommended it to anyone. Jacqueline Hill and Martin Clough

Yet again (third time now) we have enjoyed a two night stay at the Lincoln House. I cannot really add much to my previous review however suffice to say - just as before - perfect. Friendly staff, private parking, same large comfortable bed in lovely quiet room at the back of the house, superb breakfast. Well that's it - can't think of anything to complain about!

Room Tip: We always have the same room at the back - I don't know if it is quieter as have not stayed at t...
