Welcoming and helpful owners. Room and whole place was immaculate. Fantastic attention to detail - with lots of little touches which most places wouldn't think of (magazines in room, extra toiletries, hot chocolate in room, home made jams etc at breakfast) Close to Cathedral area. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Lincoln.

handy for town and attractions, the museum is only 10 min walk and the castle/cathedral 15min. The Mayfield itself is clean & friendly the breakfast is good. There is a small carpark at the rear (5 cars) Only downside was the size of the shower
