Airco in the room does not do its job at all, there is no power socket next to the beds for charging, reception desk was not manned in the morning or staff were not interested to serve. Very unfriendly people at the breakfast buffet. Tired rooms. Location is nice. Will not go here again.

I have been using Holiday Inns for 20 years and I am used to a high standard from them. This was no exception and I would recommend it highly not least from its position on Brayford Wharf.

The hotel doesn't look special from the outside and the lobby is rather small, but the welcome was good and the room was fine with a comfortable bed and a very nice bathroom. The bonus was the view over the Brayford marina - we hadn't expected this area of water in the centre of Lincoln. There are lots of retaurants... More

One night city break stay with friends. Excellent location for exploring Lincoln shops,castle and cathedral. Easy booking and warm friendly staff. Rooms clean and comfortable and no noise with rooms overlooking car park. The ones at front of hotel would look out over Brayford Water but I would imagine there may be a possibility of some noise from local bars... More

Located in the redeveloped waterfront area amongst numerous restaurants and a short walk from both the High Street shops, castle and Cathedral. Be aware that the castle and Cathedral are on top of a very very steep hill which could be difficult for some. Coming by car can be interesting as you have to and are allowed to drive down... More

The hotel is centrally situated opposite the University and alongside Brayford Pool, very close to the Town centre for Castle (currently the Poppy wave is there - free), Cathedral, Steep Hill etc. There is ample parking at a discounted rate for overnight guests.

We have stayed in Holiday Inn Express before and this one is up to the usual exceptional standard. Slightly further away from city centre than some hotels but still within walking distance of shops, restaurants, bars and the university campus. Lovely room, helpful staff and a buffet breakfast included in the price.
