We decided to stay here for our trip to Lincoln and the International Bomber Command Centre because of its location, parking and breakfast. Unfortunately on arrival we were told there would not be any breakfast. We were also told we would have to pay for our car parking. There

We visited this week. Firstly I want to start on the positives. The lady on reception was charming and helpful. The lounge in the hotel part is cosy and inviting and has an 'honesty' bar which is a nice touch. There is parking at the rear in the courtyard but it's a gravel car

Great location and lots of history. The room was really nice although could do with more lighting. The room was cold on arrival but quickly remedied by the staff. The man on the reception was really helpful and professional. Great hotel and would stay again.

Dear guest thank you for your review. I note that on booking .com there are clear images & description of the property that you would rent, including a description that the ground floor area is shared with another apartment. The description reads: ''This apartment is situated within a modern townhouse and shares a ground floor kitchen and dining facilities with another apartment. This first floor apartment comprises of 2 bedrooms with flexible sleeping arrangements, a bathroom with a shower'' Unfortunately we are unable to manage how 2 separate groups decide to use the shared space, but would suggest that the kitchen being used is a reasonable likelihood & this leads to kitchen cups/saucers etc being used. I will look into other areas that you have highlighted without delay.
