My friend and I stayed there for only 1 night. Linda and Rob made us feel very welcome after a long day travelling by train. (Our train was cancelled and arrived 90 min late!) Rob immediately carried our case up to a lovely twin room with en-suite. Everything was spotlessly clean. The breakfast was great. Choice of 4 cereal, natural yoghurt and summer fruits. Then full English and as much tea/coffee and toast as we wanted. Great value for money. Will definitely stay there again if in the area.

We have just returned from a weekend in Skegness having stayed at The Sherwood Hotel. This is the 3rd time we have stayed there and will go there again.The owners Linda & Rob give you a warm welcome every time & can not do enough to make you feel welcome & at home.The rooms are very clean with en suites & very comfortable beds.You get a lovely full English breakfast with as much tea & coffee as you can drink.We get treated like old friends when we go there now & highly recommend staying there.The hotel is situated right off the main high st & only a very short walk to the beach & ammusments it could not be better situated with carparking at the front.

From the moment we walked in linda and rob went out of their way to ensure that we were happy and had everything we needed. Our room was cozy, clean and comfortable, the whole place has a very relaxed atmosphere and the breakfast is to die for, what more can you ask for. I really can't find a bad word to say about the place or the people , we will certainly be visiting the sherwood again and we can't wait to do so.

We popped up to skegness for bank holiday weekend on off chance there were still some vacancies in guest houses. After a lot of driving around and getting hot and bothered we found the Sherwood lodge. We got a room straight away for 54quid for the night. It has its own parking which was a bonus too. The owners are very welcoming. The room we stayed in was lovely with its own ensuite. Would come again.

this was our 2nd stay at 'the sherwood' . basically just needed somewhere to stay after seeing show at the embassy. we were given front looking room with shower-room. rob and linda are excellent hosts, clearly interested in making you feel at home once you arrive. breakfast was very good 2, with plenty of choice. shower was a bit small, but then again i'm a big bloke ;) . everything you need is only a stones throw away as well. will stay again if need to visit skegness in the future.
