A safe bet for a room in a good location. Decor slightly outdated and the rooms are very basic. 'It does the job' and the location is great. If you are wanting a modern room with style then this isn't the place however if you are out and about and need a place to stay in a great location then...

We booked a Valentine weekend with upgrade to Cathedral view. The room and views were superb - very clean and well furbished. We had an evening meal in the Green Room on both Friday and Saturday, choosing different options and all food was well prepared and delicious. The menu was varied and we struggled to choose. Staff were helpful and...

Booked this place based on price inclusive of breakfast, location and reviews. First impressions were not good. Fake grass at front a bit weird but the steps (in your face as you approach the main entrance) shocking! Our first thought uho what have we done! However check in smooth, room large, admittedly dated, comfortable (big enough for a king bed...

Whilst visiting Lincoln for a shopping day we took advantage of a voucher for a lunch packet price of two courses - either starter and main or main and sweet plus a free bottle of wine for £13.50 per head. We left plenty of time for the walk up steep hill taking in the more eclectic shops than the main...

Booked a superior room here with view of Lincoln cathedral- excellent and well worth the view. Good room and spacious car parking with wide spaces. Ready pedestrian access to cathedral, castle and Steep Hill. Breakfast on second day was excellent- helpful staff and good porridge and eggs benedict.

We recently attended a large party at this venue. The room was nicely laid out but the ceiling height was very low - this made the large room feel a bit claustrophobic in my opinion. The acoustics of the room were poor - possibly due to its low ceiling. Another consequence is that, presumably because of the low ceiling, there...

The Lincoln hotel is in a great location but the 70’s style building is never going be very architecturally interesting &, although clean & tidy, the furniture & fittings are dated & a little tired. It does have adequate parking which is a bonus for a city center & was supposed to cost 5/day but no charge appeared on our...

Very friendly staff, rooms starting to look dated, although clean so adds to the feel of a retro style architecture. Breakfast was busy as a wedding party was present, plenty of staff and they still managed that individual service. Would stay again soon.
