Stayed here for 4 nights due to work. The staff could not have been more helpful and welcoming. I arrived early but it was not a problem and my room was sorted promptly. The room itself was very functional with a large shower and a desk to work on alongside a sofa to relax. One good thing that sets it aside from other hotels at the moment is the rooms are cleaned every day in a COVID secure way which I appreciated as had takeaways most nights due to restaurants and pubs being closed Breakfast was grab and go but had no issues with this. All the staff from reception through to housekeeping and maintenance went out of their way to make my work visit away very relaxing. If in Lincoln again will definitely stay here again For info there is a Morrisons 5 min walk away and the city centre is around another 10 mins

Just got back after a few nights stay here and we had a great time! Disappointed we could get the top floor as requested, but Lorna did her best to sort this for us! The hotel is quiet, but has a fair bit of noise from outside, we over looked the car park, but there is an industrial estate which bordered the hotel - which isn’t quiet. The windows are double glazed, but don’t seal very well so you do get noise and a draft coming through, but nothing major! The hotel is within 10mins walk from the centre and is so easy to navigate around, yes it’s a busy road but that’s what traffic lights are there for. Plenty of restaurants and bars close by, ad loads of retail parks ideal for some spending! Breakfast is Grab & Go, if I’m honest it doesn’t work - the staff try so hard to make it work, but are really struggling! (I think head office need to rethink its policy) We missed breakfast twice and went across the road to McDonald’s as the queue was too big, and no tables available. It must be hard to manage, but I think there could be a better way of doing it. The staff make this hotel, so friendly and polite all the time which makes a hotel stay nice. Lorna is a superstar, Jack of all trades and she keeps the “young” ones moving - but always there with a happy smile and a friendly chat about your day! Duty Manager Imogen is also another great asset to the team, professional but treats you like a friend as really does go that extra mile! Thanks for a great stay, and next time we’re in the McFlurry’s are on you Lorna & Imogen! 😂😂

Room was fine other than we had 2 adults and child in room. With sofa bed down for son there was no space at the end of the bed to stand to use the desk table where teas and coffees laid out. Also room was cold no matter what we did with the temp control. Hotel was fine, staff friendly enough but really the size of room with queen bed not even double was cramped & only suitable for 2 people. Very busy roads to cross into town.

We visited this hotel and had a lovely stay. The hotel is a ten minute walk from the town centre. We found the hotel clean and we had a takeaway breakfast due to the current covid restrictions. Our stay was made more enjoyable due to the friendly staff who are a credit to the hotel.We would not hesitate to recommend.
