From the location at the bottom of The High Street to the breakfast in the morning, everything you could ever want in a B+B, checking in was hassle free and friendly, the room was spotless, a small double bed for a single room, decent size tv, tea and coffee making and a spacious bathroom. Breakfast was excellent, full English and... More

The guesthouse is stylishly furnished with a lovely living room and dining room, guests can use the microwave and the fridge in the kitchen. The bedroom and bathroom are spacious, super comfortable and quiet. The welcome and service were absolutely outstanding. Breakfast was perfectly cooked with top quality ingredients. A real find! I'll book again the next time we go... More

Wanted to take my other half for a spontaneous trip to Lincoln as we'd never been before. Literally booked this B&B minutes before heading up the motorway without looking into reviews or any of that stuff. For what i paid i wasn't expecting much - basically a bed after a night on the tiles. This place was so much more... More

Great guest house with helpful and friendly owners. Lovely and well decorated room. Breakfast excellent and tasty. A really good option to eat takeaway in the dining room and chilled bottl3d water available. Would not hesitate to book again if returning to Lincoln.

Stayed here for 2 nights, from the moment we checked in everything was great! The room was large, spacious and had everything you'd need for a weekend stay. The bed was just the right firmness, and everything was extremely clean and tidy, with a lovely fresh smell to the room. The bathroom looked brand new, and the shower has to... More

It took 5 pounds from station to get to the guest house, so was not bad. I was able to walk using high street to the cathedral and city center, took 25min walk. "Angae" the host was very nice. There is an area downstairs where you can keep your wines, soft leather couches to sit on and do your work... More

With a nice easy straight line walk into the city centre, about 30 minutes on foot, this is an excellent place to stay. The outside of the building looks a bit tired but don't be fooled. The rooms are comfortably furnished, spacious and very clean (at least mine was, room 8). Breakfast was served in the small breakfast room and... More

We stayed at the Tennyson for one night. The lady who checked us in was friendly, really helpful and accommodating. The room was nice (room 1), the only negative was the shower as it was quite small. The cleanliness was second to none. Everything you could need was on hand, sewing kit in the dresser and free bottled water in... More

I had a gorgeous spacious room, it is a bit out of the centre, but really easy to find. There is a huge park opposite which would have been lovely for a run on if it wasnt raining! Breakfast was fab, and you order specifically what you would like, and choose a time suitable for you.
