Its looking old and tired. The ceiling fan in the bathroom looked like it hadn't been cleaned in months. A lot of peeling paint on window ledges etc. The breakfast was your typical English Hotel. Staff were pleasant but the whole place is lacking the spark. Great location. The guys on the desk didn't seem up to speed on the... More

The Lincoln is located in the Cathedral quarter and has access to all the differing aspects that Lincoln has to offer. You can easily walk to the historical sights, the main shopping area, whilst having somewhere safe to park the car. The hotel is also situated in a quiet place but is easy to get to from the main roads... More

I booked a deluxe room with a cathedral view. The view over to the cathedral was lovely but describing the room as deluxe would be pushing it a bit. The hotel is rather dated but it was comfortable and the location was ideal for a weekend break. The staff were friendly and helpful. We found the evening menu at the... More

Went for lunch here on a travelzoo voucher. Two courses and a glass of presecco🍾 Very nice meal, in a small intimate dining room, very good service. Would definitely visit again. Very reasonable even if you didn't go on a deal.

Room very good, view of Cathedral from our balcony. Comfy bed, nice hot water with a choice of bath or shower. Heated towel rail. Good wi-if connection. Good walking distance to the Bailgate with lovely shops and restaurants. Castle opposite the Cathedral so all very easily accessible. Then on down Steep Hill to the centre of Lincoln.
