Best location ever! Couldn't be bettered. Huge bonus to be able to park the car on the premises. Unusual arrangement of having breakfast served in the Italian restaurant next door but it worked so well. Just a tad disappointed that the swimming pool was out of action as we'd taken costumes and extra towels so that we could enjoy a... More

It was alright, but certainly nothing to write home about. The room was dusty and several things were broken, including the toilet seat (no King ever sat comfortably on a broken throne!). There were wires coming from the kettle - if I wanted a thundershock I would play Pokemon GO! The shower head holder was missing so I had to... More

This B&B is in a great location for historic Lincoln, a short walk from the cathedral, castle and restaurants etc. Very useful car park (charged). However, it is badly let down by the breakfast arrangement which is provided by the adjoining tapas bar. Don't bother with this - it is rubbish!

Guest-friendly; very near cathedral and castle; lots of shops and restaurants nearby; perfect place for short-stay in Lincoln; fab staff - nothing was too much trouble (fresh milk; bespoke breakfasts; maps etc.).

What can I say about staying in a very well maintained historical house on the ancient Roman road in a town like Lincoln!? Quaint! Charming!! Out of this world!! The staff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable, making the stay even more pleasant. The room, up on the top floor (with narrow staircase and no lift) was comfortable, with nice beds... More

We managed to book 7 rooms for 15 people for this trip, and were extremely happy with all of them. I say rooms - the 'family' room turned out to be a complete suite.
