“A beautiful small hotel”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

This is a wonderful converted house located in a beautiful street about 15 min on foot by the city centre. We only stayed one night but we enjoyed sleeping there. Breakfast tastes anazing and the whole atmosphere is very cosy and traditional.

An excellent all round experience with a nicely furnished room and very good breakfast (fresh fruit and hot meals cooked to order). Good location within 10 minutes walk of Cardiff Castle. The nearby Cricketers Arms provides a handy in meal if you don't want to walk into town.

Our group of 4 stayed for 5 nights in August. We had great service, good advice as to where to go and what to see in Cardiff and Wales, and had a delicious hot breakfast every morning.

The only downside is that the hotel is about a 20-25 minute walk to the castle and city centre so if you don't have a car, keep that in mind. Having said that, you can walk through beautiful Bute park to get there so if you have the time, that is a great way to start and end your day out.

The staff are friendly and we will go back next time we are in Wales.

We are all happy hear at Lincoln House to hear that you had a great 5 night stay with us.

Good service, good advice and good breakfasts, can't ask for more than that can you?

There are buses running from Cathedral Road every 10-15 minutes, should you have not wanted to walk 20 minutes into the City Centre.


Hope to see you again if you are ever in Wales!

My adult children and I came to Cardiff early July and were delighted with our stay here. We had two rooms on the ground floor, as I have a dodgy knee, and they were immaculately clean and very good value for money. On the the advice of the friendly staff, we strolled along the quiet and safe street to the Cricketers pub where we had a light meal which was very pleasant. We enjoyed the breakfast and were sad to be on our way.

I booked a Four poster king room as a surprise night away to celebrate our 18th Wedding Anniversary. We parked our car in the rear car park. We were shown to our room, with the offer of our bags being carried for us. Our room was just simply amazing, and the champagne & strawberries delicious. A 15min walk through parks to the city centre, or a 5 min ride in a taxi costing under £5. We also went on the river boat to Cardiff Bay. The staff were lovely, polite & professional. The bar area was comfortable along with the sitting room, a great space to relax. The breakfast was perfect, with a fantastic choice. The perfect place for our night away.
Thank You.

We chose the best place to stay in Cardiff with a quiet location about 15 minutes walk from city center through beautiful Bute Park. The rooms were large, bathrooms modern and service was excellent. There are many good restaurants within easy walking distance as well.

Excellent hotel to stay in Cardiff. We are Cardiff residents and stayed here to enjoy the city through visitors eyes, we were very impressed the hotel was warm and friendly and very peaceful it had an elegant old world charm. The staff were helpful and friendly and the breakfast was delicious, the hotel had a convenient car park and we walked into town and back easily.
We would recommend this hotel to anyone coming to Cardiff.
