2) A spring was poking dangerously through the surface of one of the mattresses on the top floor.

Met the owner David on arrival, showed us around, A birthday/ visit to Lincoln combined on Boxing Day. Superbly located, this accommodation did everything we expected for an overnight stay. We have NO negative reviews and would not hesitate to return.

Absolutely no ambience. Dirty bedroom floor, no ventilation and very hot during the night even though radiators were turned off, smelled of drains. Mattress disgusting covered only by skimpy sheet. No mattress cover, or bedside rugs. Only 4 coat hangers two of which were wire ones. Only one chair and grubby sofa. Lighting in bedroom so dim we didnt see...

Very warm and cosy. Yes...
