Within easy walking distance of Lincoln Cathedral, this friendly hotel offers clean accommodation (be prepared that a single room may feel a bit small but it was OK for me). The friendly staff were helpful and welcoming and breakfast was great with a selection of fruit juices, cereals and yogurts as well as a choice of cooked breakfasts - just... More

We had a lovely weekend staying at the Hillcrest Hotel. . A very personal service from changing our booking when I made a mistake with dates to making us an excellent early breakfast on Sunday morning . So convenient, near the centre of Lincoln, yet in a quiet road with hotel and free street parking .

We chose this hotel for our short break in Lincoln and it was a lovely building finished to a high standard. We appear to have been upgraded to a four poster room which was also very nice! The shower was very powerful and overall the room was very nice with a view over Arboretum park. The room was very clean... More

We stayed here this weekend as it is in a prime location with lovely views over Lincoln and the owner and staff are lovely but sadly that's where it ends. The decor in the hotel at parts is nice but let down by rips in the wallpaper in the hallways. We checked in and our room was on the top... More

We booked in for one night (Saturday) prior to a vintage car rally on Sunday morning. The Landlady was very welcoming. We had to leave before breakfast but were provided with croissants, jam, fruit etc in our room. The hotel was clean, comfortable and well located for the historic quarter of Lincoln - less than ten minutes from the cathedral... More
