Reviewed May 31, 2014

Staying here for one night during our UK tour, we were confronted with a very small room. We were told to expect it, but were still taken aback somewhat. The shower/toilet was also small, however, one must realise that it is originally a house converted into a B & B. That aside the bed was comfortable, we had a ground floor room and it was very quiet, even being near reception. I utilised the bar, no beer on tap but a selection of bottle beer plus spirits were available. We ordered take away for tea and ate it in the bar area, we were supplied plates and cutlery
Breakfast was what you expecting a UK B & B, bloody huge. Plenty of cold buffet and a menu for the cooked, we had fried eggs on toast and porridge.

Room Tip: Beware the shower. Ours was on one speed...powerful and it was like showering in needles

Thank you for your review, our compact double rooms can be small to some people, hence the name, however there are king, super-king and four-poster rooms available also.

The shower has a lever that you can adjust to have it as powerful or as slow as you want.

Many Thanks,
Lincoln House, Cardiff

The Lincoln is well, located and comfortable if a bit old fashioned. The staff are friendly and helpful and the breakfast is fine (even though "over easy" does not compute). Our room was very generous, but unfortunately supplied with only a VERY HOT doona and a blanket with no sheet, which did not make for a sound night's sleep. Noisy plumbing did not help. The hotel almost backs on to Bute Park which provides for a pleasant walk before breakfast. Overall, the hotel leaves very little to be desired and provides good value.

Thank you for your review, yes to some we may appear to be old fashioned as we are a 114 year old Victorian property and try to keep the hotel within that period, whilst having all the mod cons needed in this 21st century.

An over easy egg to us means an egg flipped over and cooked both sides. The doona/duvet/quilt could have been taken off and a sheet provided, we would have only been too happy to oblige.

Thank you for reviewing our family run 3 star hotel.

our room was beautifully furnished, quiet and great beds. It was up three flights of stairs which didn't bother us, and we were asked if we wanted help with our luggage. The staff are very helpful, nothing too much trouble for them , and they even recommended a fantastic Italian restaurant which was nearby. It was our first time in Cardiff but certainly not our last, and we would definitely recommend the Lincoln House to anyone, Great breakfasts too. Thank you for our lovely stay.

The Hotel is in a beautiful part of town, convenient by foot to everything in Cardiff proper. The room was lovely. The breakfast was unbelievable. However, the staff is what made the experience. They were all terrific but, David in particular deserves a special acknowledgment.

Room Tip: We followed the recommendation to take a room on the 3rd floor in the back. It was really quiet. How...

My wife and I plus four friends enjoyed a great stay in this excellent hotel. Although essentially B&B accommodation, it was in every other respect a very comfortable and perfectly located hotel for exploring Cardiff and surrounding area. Cardiff Castle and shopping area is only a 15-20 mins pleasant walk through Bute Park alongside River Taff.
The staff were especially welcoming and genuinely pleased to help in any way. Breakfasts were superb, with an amazing selection of fresh fruit and cereals to start with. Rooms were clean, comfortable, well appointed and serviced daily.
Although no evening meals served, local restaurants were only 5-10 mins. walk away, offering good choices. Sunday evening is a bit more challenging as many locations are closed. The hotel allows you to bring your own wine without corkage charge!
There is a free car park at the rear of the hotel, where we left our cars for the duration of the 3 night stay. Surrounding area is quiet, residential, but Cathedral Road is a busy through road.

Room Tip: Rooms at rear and side are quieter.

The Hotel is on a very leafy street with a park located behind it which will bring you directly to Cardiff castle within 15mins. The rooms are spacious and clean, however can be very warm at night even with the windows open and the hotel and no lift. Breakfast is excellent with options of fresh fruit, cereals, pastries and welsh breakfast. I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. It will cost you £5 to travel to the city in a taxi if you are heading out at night, however there is several restaurants and bars located in the area. Overall a good hotel which I would recommend to stay in.

Room Tip: Try to get a room at the back of the hotel
