This was a great find; right below the Cathedral and within the bounds of the old City. Their on site parking, available before and after check in/check out, was very helpful. My room was in the upper half of a renovated chapel,[ The Annex], that was comfortable and well appointed. The included fully cooked breakfast was in a palatial upper... More

I stayed at the Old Palace for one night in August 2016. I had a very small single room but despite this I would definitely recommend the experience of staying in such a beautiful place. Be warned: this place is very hard to find, as there is no obvious sign on Minster Yard. After asking for directions in the Cathedral... More

Great position, a short walk to Castle, Steep street, Cathedral. We paid the extra for a master room which was definitely worth it. Room was in the chapel to the rear of the property, NOT suitable for disabled, as plenty of steps. Spacious room, view over Lincoln from beautiful window, great shower, lashings of hot water, Comfy bed and pillows,... More

Looking at the web site we expected a room that was a cut above average but our room on the bottom floor of the annex was nicely furnished but not what was expected from the photo's on the web. The bathroom was nice & modern, plenty of hot water, there was a crack in the sink but no leak. What... More

Wonderful place to stay right below the magnificent cathedral. I chose this place because of its closeness to the historic sector and we weren't disappointed. There was building work being done on the front of the Palace which spoilt any photograph but it's got to be done some time! We were happy with the room and the bathroom was very... More

This is our second stay in the old palace and we were slightly disappointed. When we stayed before the lodge had just been opened up and was stunning. Our room this time was very nice but was up in the attic area with only a small skylight window. However the dining area where we had breakfast was not as good... More

We had planned a visit to Lincoln as a trip down memory lane. Having been born in the city and attended the school on Lindum Road, I knew the location very well. No difficulty finding the Palace as I used to pass it almost daily during my school years. I had seen the photos on the website and the rooms... More

We stopped at the Old Palace on a trip to Lincoln. It is right next to the Cathedral and as the name says - it was once a Bishops palace. Kate at reception and the rest of the staff were wonderful. The rooms (we stayed in the lodge), were modernised even though they were in an old building. The hotel... More

I came here last week with one of my friends and it was absolutely spectacular. The view from the room was incredible, the bed was very comfortable and the staff made us feel very welcome. I particularly wanted to thank the waitress who was working on breakfast that morning Kelsey, because she really made the effort to make sure our... More

Converted old church, room a little dark, but plenty of character. Location up the hill near the castle and cathedral is very central but quiet. Staff friendly and the breakfast was fine with the usual choices.
