Maybe my expectations were a little high as I looked forward to our little trip to Lincoln but I cannot hide my disappointment with this hotel. At first sight of the online advertising it looked good, affordable with great reviews so I thought it were fail safe. Huge mistake! The room we booked for 2 adults and 1 child were in fact just a double bed, they gave us a bigger room with a separate bedroom for our daughter but it was not an advantage.
no 8 The smell of sewerage in the hall were overpowering and the obvious dirt everywhere from drawers, carpet, beds and bathroom were undeniable although when spoken to the staff acted shocked and unaware?! The mattress on the very creaky/Boosey bed looked at least 20 years old with protruding springs. The single beds were bowed in the centre and touching the floor. Headboard dirty, all mattress uncovered such as no protectors or pillows. Mould in the bathroom, views of trash in the garden.
We were then led to another room that turned out to be a house/apartment out through the car park onto a back street. This were very plain with dirty Walls/floors and thick dust, radiator cover broken, very wobbly dining table. I felt very upset that on a special family night away we are trailed around to these horrid places wasting more of our valuable time and energy.
We were then guided to our final room because we were too tired/drained to go find another hotel in the night with our daughter. It were a four poster room no 7.
The bed frame is lovely but nothing else sadly, the mattress as with all others had dirty marks and no protection, the two seater at the foot of the bed is the dirtiest sofa I've ever seen. The furnitures broken rather than vintage and the views are of a neighbours garden with swing. Bathroom window covered in ivy and then dirty water damaged drawers, toilet roll holder, shelf, floor, shower, carpets. The kettle full of limescale and dirty cups. It spoilt the whole trip and we couldn't wait to leave the area. I couldn't fit all the pictures I took as proof on here.
