Lincoln House Private Hotel
Ranked #1 of 74 Hotels in Cardiff
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 June 2010

We were staying in Cardiff for a very long weekend (5 days) of culture, ie opera and classical singing. It was so convenient to stay in the delightful Cathedral Road in Cardiff in definitely the best accomodation in this long road, where every other building seems to offer rooms. Everything about the place was good. Very good service, so very clean, beautifully-furnished rooms, marvellous breakfasts, and offers of snacks or of a table to eat one's takeaway meal. There is also much help and information when you need it. And there is also an excellent bar, where one can admire the photos of the owner's son who is a Hollywood actor!

The Lincoln House Hotel is very conveniently five or ten minutes from the Wales Millennium Centre or the St. David's Hall and one can either take a car or a taxi to both. It is also close to the Swalec Stadium for cricket fans, a shortish walk from the Millennium Stadium for rugby matches or for the Paul McCartney concert which was on while we were there.

This has to be the nicest place to stay in Cardiff.

My husband and I have stayed at this hotel a number of times over the 3 years that my daughter has been studying in Cardiff. On arrival, we have always received a warm, genuine welcome. I think for its location, wide breakfast choice, friendliness of staff and clean, tastefully decorated rooms and price it's hard to beat. It's only a 10 minute walk to the city centre; you can stroll through the park or walk along Cathedral Road. We've probably stayed in most of the rooms over the years ( though not the penthouse suite!) and if traffic noise would keep you awake, then opt for rooms at the back of the hotel - the Victorian style of the hotel doesn't allow for double glazing! If we have occasion to return to Cardiff we would certainly stay at the Lincoln House.

Well located for visiting the area this clean and well kept period small hotel is ideal for couples.Rooms are clean and decorated in a simple manner in keeping with the Victorian age of the property.Male Staff were attentive and polite.The front lounge is peaceful and relaxing but take your laptop as the resident computer can't be relied upon.Beds are comfortable but take ear plugs if traffic wakes you up.Breakfast is substantial and excellent quality.

Stay in one of the four poster rooms, it is well worth the extra money spent. The breakfast is great and the hotel staff cannot do enough for you. The rooms are traditionally but beautifully decorated.

We had a great stay at this hotel on the bank holiday weekend. Cooked breakfast every morning was plentiful and tasty, and the staff were friendly but unobtrusive. The location was quiet and 10 minutes' walking distance from scenic park, Cardiff Castle, and the town centre. Best of all was the decor: elegant and antique without being overdone or stuffy.
