4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We had a very comfortable one night stay at the Bail House in a very friendly and relaxed environment. We were given a warm welcome by the lady on reception and shown the facilities available. Although small, the hotel and a very comfortable, if perhaps over warm, lounge with a well stocked 'honesty' bar. The member of staff went off... More

We arrived early and was instantly made welcome. The room was beautiful. It had a four poster bed, en suite bathroom, nice fluffy towels and bathrobes. There was tea and coffee making facilities in the room and in the lounge area. A hairdryer and straighteners were also provided in the room. Breakfast was extra and provided in the restaurant next...

Very misleading description of the apartments. After much effort trying to sort WiFi we learnt that there is none in the apartment and you have to use main house - we had to chase this to find out. Really inconvenient to have no internet access as we had confidential work to do and WiFi was reason for booking there. I'm... More

We were late arriving but the lady on reception was lovely and even managed to get us booked in for a last minute meal in the restaurant next door. We were in room 4 which was all the way up stairs and was clean and tidy. The building is really old so there is no lift and the stairs are... More

On our arrival we were greeted warmly and direced to a private car park. Our room (as requested) was on the ground floor and was everything we expected and more. I hadnt ordered breakfast but we were offered it again on our arrival. Thank goodness we said yes! The beautifully appointed tapas bar makes a full english breakfast, freshly cooked,... More

Staff very polite & helpful, enjoyed the communal area and thought it was a really great area to share with our friends, we even had a bit of a laugh and cup of tea and coffee with other guests. Breakfast was lovely too. However our room was disappointing to say the least. We shared the family suite with friends. We... More

Hadn't been to Lincoln before other than driving through, upon arrival we were welcomed by the receptionist/owner. He gave us a free map of the town explained where we were, told us what to expect (Steep Hill) and he took us to our room going past the Honesty Bar and lounge area with free tea and coffee. The Room was... More

We stayed here at bail house for a 3 night visit. It looked very nice on the website and was advertised as 5***** and at a cost of £117 a night so I wanted to spend the extra and have a special visit for both of us. On arrival we were greeted by a very friendly lady who was at... More

We stayed in a house in the mews. The rooms were large and very clean. We were attending the steampunk festival and this was an ideal place for us. The staff were friendly and helpful. However - there was a dearth of electric sockets in our bedrooms - there was only one double socket (with the TV plugged into one... More

We treated ourselves to a last minute stay in one of the standard four poster bedrooms. The room was spacious with plenty of storage and seating. I particularly liked the bed, fire place and windows shutters. The bathrobes were a lovely extra touch and perfect given that it was a shared shower room and toilet. Both of the ladies we... More
