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.

I was warmly welcomed to this small B&B and was shown the lounge, breakfast and my rooms. It was a spotless double room with a new ensuite bathroom. Breakfast was Continental or the choice of full English or omelette, both of which are freshly cooked. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. My room was facing onto the road... More

Booked 5 nights through Kayak and got amazing value. Large light and warm double room, lovely decor and space with plenty of space even with a really comfy double sofa in it. En suite bathroom large and in perfect condition, sparkling clean like the rest of The Tennyson. Great touches - free bottled water in the lounge, chargers and items... More

On arrival, was greeted by Agna and told about amenities and eating places in Lincoln. Lovely room, very clean and nicely decorated and furnished with absolutely everything one would need, as was the ensuite. Breakfast cooked according to one's wishes. There was even ice cold water in the fridge for free! Very comfortable bed and a sofa if you didn't... More
