“Good option for Cardiff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

Stayed 1 night and found it a good choice for staying in Cardiff . Reasonably close to the town centre ( 10 mins walk ) it is 2 period houses formed into a small hotel . Our room was one of their smaller doubles but being at the back was quiet as well as being comfortable with a good quality double bed . was excellent The breakfast was very good with a range of too order cooked options .
In addition it had an excellent array of fresh fruit including a fruit salad. All the more surprising
therefore that it only offered tinned grapefruit . Not withstanding this minor defect i would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: rooms at back quiet

Great service, rooms and breakfast. Rooms are clean, tidy and well presented. Breakfast is fresh, cooked to order and has wonderful fresh fruit and even welsh cakes!
Love the proximity to the park & town centre and live the secure parking. The staff are proud of what they offer and work hard to protect it. I always stay here when I come to Cardiff. It's easy to get to and easy to get to town.

It is a typical english twin house, with excellent localization, in walking distance to city center and stadium and Cardiff Bay. The breakfast is excellent. The room is ample, and the king size bed is a good choice. There is no restaurant and only a bar, but is close to many restaurants. Free wi-fi and parking at rear of the building. It is not luxurious but very comfortable and with a good price

Yes our super-king size beds (6ft) are a good choice for those who like a big bed and extra space in their rooms.

We hope to see you again in the future!!

This hotel was not on our radar but by pure chance we booked and stayed at this Welsh Gem. The attention to every detail and the comfort and cleanliness puts this establishment into the 5 star class. Care and consideration shown to us by all the staff during our stay was far beyond expectations. The Welsh breakfast, the fruit selection and the service was just a continuation of everything that is so good about the Lincoln House Hotel. Location and ease of access into Cardiff center makes this Hotel a must for us every time we visit. I ma so pleased to be able to share this wonderful find with other travelers looking for exceptional service and true value for money.

A nice place to stay, close to the centre, with a lovely entrance hall, breakfast area and lounge. Breakfasts were freshly cooked and lovely. We stayed in a room which was in the attic and was very slightly smaller than we expected with no bath, but was immaculately clean, and the bed was very comfy. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not in the attic for more space.

Thank you for choosing to stay in our 3* family run hotel!!

I am glad you had a great stay. Just to make you aware, we do have a selection of rooms, ranging from compact doubles to super-king size and also four-poster rooms. We do have rooms with baths, however it is always best to request this at the time of booking or on check-in if we are to allocate a room with bath!!

We look forward to welcoming you again in the future!
