We really enjoyed our stay. It is a beautiful building, our room was very comfy too, very clean and breakfast was v good too. Location is great too. Be warned entrance to car park is narrow and as you are very near to the Cathedral there are bells at times but these not major issues

Opposite the cathedral, this B&B has a great location. There is a car park but the entrance is very tight and great care needs to be taken! We had room 7 at the very top with lovely original timbers, a comfortable bed, 2 TV's and overlooking the cathedral. Breakfast was very good offering a wide choice whilst the hosts were...

My husband and I had booked to stay at Cathedral View B&B in November this year and were really looking forward to our first visit to Lincoln. However, my husband developed a nasty infection for which he was prescribed antibiotics and I rang the owner of this B&B five days before we were due to arrive to advise that it...

Fantastic B and B. Very quaint but luxurious. Great breakfast. Friendly and accommodating hosts. We were able to leave our car there even after we had checked out. ideally located for the castle and cathedral. This was our second visit and hopefully not our last!

What a lovely place dating back to the 12th century, very clean and well presented. The hosts were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was very nice and plenty to choose from. Well situated for the sights, the castle, cathedral and steep hill. Would recommend.

I stayed at this guest house for two nights and wasn't disappointed. There is car parking but it is a squeeze to enter. This lovely historic building was built before the invention of cars! But Paul was there to help! I had room 2 which was ground floor and didn't have a cathedral view but it was really quiet and...

The Cathedral View Guest House is perfectly placed for a visit to Lincoln. After a slight disagreement with our satnav we arrived to be met by the owner, Paul, in the courtyard having navigated through the rather narrow archway (which is clearly mentioned on the website so was not unexpected but did take nerve to drive through in a Freelander...

Excellent position for discovering the old town. Paul and staff most helpful with some good tips for eating out. Unfortunately radiator not working but heater in the bedroom made sure we were cosy and warm.

Our Breakfasts...

We were welcomed on arrival and assisted to park in the very tight carpark. The room was lovely, very clean, bed comfortable. The breakfast is amazing, using local produce. Being close to the cathedral and the castle is excellent. Walking down the aptly named steep hill, you will find quaint little shops and many tea rooms, restaurants, bars etc. Everything...
