This lovely quirky hotel was a bishop's palace in bygone days and has many of the original features. Set at the foot of the beautiful and impressive Lincoln Cathedral, it is ideally situated for exploring the old part of town at the top of Steep Hill. Just a short walk to many bars and restaurants it is convenient for evening... More

My fiance booked this for us as a surprise marriage proposal, and it was perfect! The staff were welcoming and helpful, and the location was stunning! The room was clean and private, with a beautiful church style window. The room itself was situated in a small annex at the old chapel, in which you walk through a courtyard type area... More

Quite difficult to find, we had to ask several people for directions (on foot from train station). Allocated room 28 in converted chapel - lovely room, two windows either end of room. Not much natural light comes through so lights always on, we weren't in room much so that didn't bother us. Shower pressure bit low. Had to ask for... More

This hotel is in the perfect location and has free parking. Our standard room was one of 16 in an annex which was the old chapel. The conversion has been carried out to a high standard and very sympathetic to the building however our room no 23 has no views from the window. The bathroom is very modern but unfortunately...

Wonderful location - hidden away in the middle of Lincoln. We were able to store our luggage and park the car until check in, upon which we were taken to the most charming room with original features by the very efficient reception manager. Very comfy bed, and a powerful enough shower. The breakfast was lovely, and even came with a... More

Directly across from one of England's most beautiful medieval cathedrals, it occupies the 19th century bishop's residence, adjacent to the ruins of the medieval bishop's palace. Lots of history surrounding it. Very comfortable and well-run.
