Lincoln House Private Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 22, 2014

We could not fault our stay here and immediately booked to return. It is a delight to be able to walk through parkland into the city centre. The immediate vicinity is convenient for both the centre and Cardiff Bay. The hotel is stylish and comfortable, with a welcoming ambiance. Breakfasts are excellent. Although our room was a standard double, it had everything required for our comfort and was also very quiet.

An ideal place to stay when visiting Cardiff. Perfect location within walking distance of the city centre , yet in a quiet and relaxing position. This family run hotel is spotlessly clean and serves an excellent breakfast.

We have been to LincoIn house several times and have never been dissapointed.
I love the 4 poster bedroom (room1) and we try to book this room whenever we stay. Its well presented and very spacious which is great when getting ready to go out in the evening or relaxing in the afternoon.

The breakfast selection in the morning is very well thought out and presented by the staff in a
quick, helpful and friendly way.....breakfast is "..not a problem"

Stayed 1 night and found it a good choice for staying in Cardiff . Reasonably close to the town centre ( 10 mins walk ) it is 2 period houses formed into a small hotel . Our room was one of their smaller doubles but being at the back was quiet as well as being comfortable with a good quality double bed . was excellent The breakfast was very good with a range of too order cooked options .
In addition it had an excellent array of fresh fruit including a fruit salad. All the more surprising
therefore that it only offered tinned grapefruit . Not withstanding this minor defect i would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: rooms at back quiet

Great service, rooms and breakfast. Rooms are clean, tidy and well presented. Breakfast is fresh, cooked to order and has wonderful fresh fruit and even welsh cakes!
Love the proximity to the park & town centre and live the secure parking. The staff are proud of what they offer and work hard to protect it. I always stay here when I come to Cardiff. It's easy to get to and easy to get to town.

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

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.
