We visited Lincoln to see the British Legion poppy display at the Castle and we picked this hotel for its central location. However, it did not disappoint in any respect. Central location across the road from the Cathedral with magnificent views. A stones throw from the Castle itself. The rooms were comfortable, the staff were very friendly and helpful and... More

We arrived at 10:30 but couldn't book in until 2pm so decided to have coffee in the lounge. Had a lovely lunch and went into our rooms at 2pm. Rooms were well equipped with a nice view of the cathedral. A very tasty breakfast with a full English or continental opinion.

Room was very comfortable and staff were polite and helpful, a rare find these days in a large hotel. Shower was powerful, even if it was apt to flood the floor. Breakfast was well organised and there is lots of space to spread out but preferred the morning when Lincs FM was not playing terrible music and jingles loudly; it... More

We always enjoy staying here (4th time) as the location is excellent for access to the centre of Lincoln. This time we stayed in the lower price standard room which was all we needed for one night. The room was smaller than previous (a little knocked on the walls nothing major) but we were expecting that for the lower price.... More

Booked this hotel after reading other reviews on Trip Advisor and found it very good in many ways. Very helpful front desk staff, excellent location and very large car park. Our first room (a double bedded room) had a bedside table only on one side - not really happy with that and we were willingly moved into a rear twin... More

We stayed for one night on a Travelzoo deal. The room was clean, comfortable and a good size but the bonus was the absolute breath taking view of the magnificent cathedral.
