Booked The Old Palace on the strength of other reviews and was really looking forward to a lovely break in Lincoln - unfortunately The Old Palace let us down. The room we were allocated was downstairs and was dark as the window was so small - had to stand on our bed to see out of the window. The bed... More

Loved this hotel from the moment we parked in the courtyard. The receptionist was very helpful. Our room was in the church in the Palace garden. Although it was separate from the main building it had character and comfort! The window looked over the beautiful countryside below! Breakfast was delicious and plentiful, the staff were very discreet yet helpful and... More

Stayed for 3 nights .wonderful short break .location couldn't have been better. You are right in the heart of all you need.On the doorstep to all the historical sights and very quaint coffee and tea shops.

Nestled just below the awe inspiring cathedral you could not be in a better position for exploring the cathedral Quarter and Steep Hill with its unique shops, tea rooms and restaurants. And what a view from the breakfast room which is actually in the Old Palace a short walk 50 metres or so from the bedrooms which are located in... More

The Old Palace is a Bed & Breakfast situated in the heart of Lincoln’s Historic quarter. It’s not a particularly easy place to find and even though the Sat Nav took us fairly close, we had to get directions from a kind gentleman. The building has no signage whatsoever so we were still unsure we had the right place until... More

We visit Lincoln two or three weekends of the year, staying in different places each time if possible. We decided to book at The Old Palace and booked one of the ''Classic'' rooms. The price was £135.00 per night, more than our usual budget but the web site led us to believe we where booking a really nice ''Classic'' room... More

We visited Lincoln with friends and would heartily recommend this hotel, mainly for it's location. Situated at the top of Steep Hill, it is within perfect view of the Cathedral and many of the better sites and restaurants in Lincoln. We booked the Green room. One of the superior options. Sight of the cathedral out of the velux window in... More

This is without doubt the most amazing B&B I have stayed in. The room we were in was in the same building as Lincoln Theological College. It was small but big enough, exquisitely furnished with an amazing bathroom. The mood and feel is sort of ecclesiastical chic. Have I just invented a new genre? If so, it's mine, I own... More

The Old Palace nestles in the shade of Lincoln Cathedral, has glorious views of the city one side due to is location on the hill in the Old Quarter and the cathedral the other. It's so quiet, so peaceful, a place for a true relaxing stay. The famous Steep Hill, restaurants and independent shops are located just a 5 minute... More
