Lincoln House Private Hotel
Ranked #1 of 74 Hotels in Cardiff
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 4, 2014

It is a typical english twin house, with excellent localization, in walking distance to city center and stadium and Cardiff Bay. The breakfast is excellent. The room is ample, and the king size bed is a good choice. There is no restaurant and only a bar, but is close to many restaurants. Free wi-fi and parking at rear of the building. It is not luxurious but very comfortable and with a good price

Thank you for choosing to stay at our 3* family run hotel. We are pleased that you had a good stay.

Yes our super-king size beds (6ft) are a good choice for those who like a big bed and extra space in their rooms.

We hope to see you again in the future!!

This hotel was not on our radar but by pure chance we booked and stayed at this Welsh Gem. The attention to every detail and the comfort and cleanliness puts this establishment into the 5 star class. Care and consideration shown to us by all the staff during our stay was far beyond expectations. The Welsh breakfast, the fruit selection and the service was just a continuation of everything that is so good about the Lincoln House Hotel. Location and ease of access into Cardiff center makes this Hotel a must for us every time we visit. I ma so pleased to be able to share this wonderful find with other travelers looking for exceptional service and true value for money.

A nice place to stay, close to the centre, with a lovely entrance hall, breakfast area and lounge. Breakfasts were freshly cooked and lovely. We stayed in a room which was in the attic and was very slightly smaller than we expected with no bath, but was immaculately clean, and the bed was very comfy. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not in the attic for more space.

Thank you for choosing to stay in our 3* family run hotel!!

I am glad you had a great stay. Just to make you aware, we do have a selection of rooms, ranging from compact doubles to super-king size and also four-poster rooms. We do have rooms with baths, however it is always best to request this at the time of booking or on check-in if we are to allocate a room with bath!!

We look forward to welcoming you again in the future!

Turn left out of the hotel into Dyfrig Street, go through the gate at the bottom and walk across to the River Taff. In a couple of minutes you’ll be at the Swalec Stadium. Go on for a few minutes more, cross the road and you’re at the Millennium Stadium and just a few more metres further on there’s the City Centre. If it’s a decent day and you are feeling like some exercise (we were!) carry on along the Taff on the same side as you started, thread your way round past Penarth Quay Marina and walk across the Cardiff Bay Barrage and then on into the Cardiff Bay Development. You can either walk back from there (we did but then we’re old!) or get a bus or train back into the City Centre. That’s how convenient the Lincoln House is. Now ally that to an immaculately kept establishment, sumptuous breakfasts and service that is warm and attentive without being “in your face” and you have a really great proposition. Put more succinctly, we really enjoyed it.

Additionally, although we ate in the City, there look to be some decent places to eat nearby and there’s a fine pint of Evan Evans to be had in the Cricketers just a few doors down.

Thank you so much for saying we are an immaculately kept establishment. Glad you had lovely breakfasts and as always here at Lincoln House, you can be sure of a high level of warm service :-)

Thank you for choosing our 3* star family run hotel and we hope to see you again!
