The hotel is beautifully situated for shopping, restaurants, bars etc. The staff are superb and always go the extra mile to make sure your stay is enjoyable. The beds are very comfy and our room had a bath as well as a shower. If you're visiting lincoln I would highly recommend this hotel.

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. The price was very reasonable and the staff very friendly and helpful. The sitting room/bar area was perfect for us all to congregate in and felt... More

A fabulous treasure, a warm wellcome, lovely helpful and knowledgeable staff. Ideally placed amongst independent shops and cafes, within easy walking distance of Castle and Cathedral. A little strange to have breakfast in the tapas bar next door but it was well cooked but can be forgiven as the food was excellent. Will definitely be on my revisiting list.
