On first impressions we really liked our room. But after being in it for a few minutes we could smell freshly painted walls which was pretty overwhelming. On top of this we had no heating! Down on reception the ladies were very nice and offered us a small heater. She said that some of the rooms had the same problem. But why are they giving rooms to people if the heating isn't working? Plus they shouldn't put people in to rooms stinking of paint. They did offer us another smaller room but this wasn't really acceptable as there was 3 of us. On the plus side, the breakfast was very good and the location excellent.

This modern hotel is located close to the University of Lincoln, St Marks and High Stret areas of Lincoln. Car parking costs £5 per day but be careful as you have to pay and enter your registration when you arrive and it defaults to £10 and you have to reduce your departure time. It works on Automatic Number Plate Recognition. Our room was comfortable, but the desk light wasn't working. At breakfast which is included in the price two out of three hot drinks machines weren't working which was disappointing. However, the hot food was hot and the quality was good.

Great staff - very welcoming and friendly. We were on 5th floor and the room facing the main road. I am quite deaf but could still hear the traffic below without my hearing aids in. The room itself was well equipped and quite spacious - the bathroom was very clean and the shower superb. The breakfast was a little bland and disappointing but all in all cracking location, comfy bed and great staff. We would definitively stay again.

Stayed here for 3 nights in Late July 2021.We have used HI Express on many occasions and this was the best one we have stayed. The staff were very friendly and provided a lot helpful tourist information. The hotel was bright and airy as were the rooms which were very well cleaned and maintained. Due to the heavy evening rain, we ate in the hotel on two occasions. I was pleasantly surprised by the standard of the food which was good (not sure if they use a Deliveroo etc service). It was our first visit to Lincoln is a great place for a city break with lots to do and see.

We stayed in a top floor room for two nights. Up there you could still clearly hear traffic on the road below. In contrast, the windows in the breakfast room on the ground floor had excellent sound insulation. Our room was clean and well-maintained but on the small side. There was a useful desk lamp but unfortunately you couldn't use it without having other room lights on. Not ideal. The shower was efficient with a decent flow of hot water. We found every member of staff we encountered to be friendly and helpful. They are clearly well-trained in the art of providing good customer service. The breakfast buffet was good and well-serviced too. In spite of warnings to the contrary, we did not experience any queuing and therefore did not have to take "grab bags" back to our room. The hotel is close to the University of Lincoln campus and a five minute walk to the thriving Brayford Pool area with its various eating and drinking establishments.
