“Quaint guesthouse excellent location”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

We stayed here for one night to break up our journey back home and it's in a fantastic location very close to the Cathedral, bars and cafes. It's a lovely old quaint building with original features. Very clean, with nice fittings and decor. Our only slight complaint was the allocated ground floor room right next to the door front door which was a bit noisy with guests coming and going ( it may be worth contacting the owner Paul beforehand for room choice ) but it still deserves 5/5

Room Tip: Room 1 is next to the front door - we found it a bit noisy with poor views, but may be a preferred o...

We stayed here for 3 nights recently. We were given the warmest of welcomes by Helen (who turned out to be the housekeeper)We were shown to our room and made to feel instantly at home, Helen was very knowlegable about the area and suggested various restaurants which turned out to be a real help as there were so many to choose from. (I recommend Ginos!) After a night out and good sleep in a lovely comfy bed with lovely linen we went for breakfast in the beautiful breakfast room and were cooked a fine breakfast by Paul, the owner who was very friendly and attentive. The room was spotlessly clean and we were delighted after our first day out to come back to find our room made back up with clean towels, drinks replenished, bin emptied and bed as neat as a new pin! On our second morning Helen cooked breakfast and I have to say it was even better than the first day! Poached eggs were perfect. In all this was the best place we ever stayed and Helen if you ever want a job"Up north" just give us a call! I didnt like to say at the time but we are in the same industry and hope we can emulate your very high standards!

Great location; wonderful breakfast; good sized room; friendly staff; free parking in courtyard. Highly recommended - and if you need traffic directions and other advice, Paul is the man!

Paul was the perfect host. Nice and friendly. When we arrived late afternoon he greeted us at our car and showed us to out room taking us on a tour of the guest house so we new where breakfast was served and the front door. He made us feel welcome and at home straight away. The weather was awful but our room was always lovely and warm. We will definitely go back.

We wanted a weekend in Lincoln (having never visited) and turned to Trip Advisor for a suggestion where to stay. Cathedral View was perfect - great location, friendly staff, clean, comfortable room, good breakfast and somewhere to park. What more could you ask? Will definitely stay here again should we return.

Super location at the top of the hill, a very helpful host, and great breakfasts. As others have commented, the car park is tight, but fine for a reasonable size car, and given the location so close to the cathedral, a great asset. We left our car there for 4 days, and used the excellent circular bus service to get around Lincoln (free with pensioner bus passes!). The best place for a Cathedral inspired visit to Lincoln.

I recently spent a few days in Lincoln and stayed at the Cathedral View Guest House. It is a really lovely comfortable guest house. We spent 3 nights there and everything about the Guest House is excellent.The host Paul is friendly and welcoming and the breakfasts we enjoyed were just the best. The lovely room was perfect and the bathroom is so luxurious ..........

We will definitely stay here again.........
