“cute cottage retreat style hotel/ motel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012 via mobile

great there was a second TV in kids room (booked family room) except we couldn't get it to work. nice pool view. good size rooms. absolutely stand out amazing beds. location wise its less than a minute to town but a pain it was always by car being on the other side of the bridge. really cute restaurant and bar area with lake view and wandering peacocks

My husband and I stayed here over the weekend. It was our second time staying here. It's an OK place to stay, especially if you ask for a room away from the Princes Highway - facing onto the river. It's nothing special and the staff aren't particularly friendly. It does have a resident peacock who is quite beautiful but you must be prepared for its noise too - which can be startling. Watch out for the mozzies given this property's proximity to the water. It's an OK place but nothing special. Could do with an update and a bit more of a clean. Bedding was comfortable and we slept well. As I said, it was our second trip - it's not flash but it is comfortable.

Room Tip: Room 33 or 16 - any room not facing onto the Princes Highway.

Stayed here last month as part of a group. Rooms quite comfortable although bed was a little soft. Staff were most helpful. Although there was a wedding, they allowed our group to use the bar area to watch the NRL semi final and to eat fish and chips which was most appreciated. Would stay again.

We recently stayed overnight after traveling from Melbourne and were looking forward to a good nights sleep as we had been up since 3.30am. The room was clean if a little dated but smelt musty, like it had not been used in a while. Heating blew out cold air only so we had to add extra blankets to the bed. The bed was very uncomfortable, and you had to rollover about every hour to avoid sore hips and shoulders. Bathroom was good but hair dryer didnt work which I was advised was temperamental!! Could be a lovely place to stay with a little bit of effort and new beds!

Victoria A, Marketing Manager at Comfort Inn Lincoln Downs, responded to this review, August 20, 2012
Dear Jen,

We apologise for your experience in staying at the Comfort Inn Lincoln Downs.

The musty smell you experienced is from the lake that is located outside the balconies of this room. This can sometimes occur due to the extended periods of rain we have been experiencing lately.

The bed in the room you stayed in is new and in excellent condition.

The air conditioning must have been set on the cooling setting. The staff would have gladly helped you change the setting of the air conditioning had they been alerted of the issue. There are instructions on how to change the settings in the compendiums of each room.

Staff gave you a new hairdryer as soon as you alerted them that the one in your room did not work and this room has now been fitted with a new hairdryer.

We apologies for these minor issues and hope that you reconsider staying at Lincoln Downs in the near future.

We stayed the night in one of the 1st floor rooms. It was just a place to stay after driving all day from Sydney and before heading inland to Canberra the next day. We arrived in the dark so didn't get to see the views but the room we had (number 9 I think) was very roomy and spacious. It had a large flat screen TV and a very nice comfortable queen sized bed in the main room and another large TV and two single beds in the kids room. My wife was pleased to see a bath in the bathroom (nice to soak after a long drive) but only a microwave, toaster and kettle for cooking. After our cramped stay in Sydney we would have liked to have stayed a few more nights here but had to be on our way.
