I booked this hotel for a short break as we had not visited Lincoln before. First impression of the hotel from outside was a little disappointing, part of it looked unwelcoming and grey. However, once out of the car and looking at the front of the hotel I did change my mind. The hotel is perfectly located, being just opposite...

This is a "seventy's" hotel by construction but very comfortable.It has an unrivalled view of the Cathedral from its public rooms and is within minutes of the conservation "uphill" area with its myriad of shops and restaurants. Comfortable rooms and a good buffet breakfast. Bar prices are reasonable. A big car park. We generally stay here. Helpful staff.

We stayed for a one night break for a Birthday celebration. We booked into one of the Cathedral view rooms with a small balcony. The view was beautiful, especially in the evening when the Cathedral was lit up. The room itself was large, nicely decorated and spotlessly clean. The staff were friendly and helpful and the manager Suzie helped make...

Right beside the Cathedral and in easy walking distance of the castle, this hotel has a prime situation. Décor is late 60's early 70's but beds / bathrooms are clean and comfortable. Stayed on the ground floor and there is a very musty smell in the corridor but only there -- it didn't pervade our room. Breakfast below average for...

Booked the Lincoln through secret escapes and was really happy with our choice. Booked a room overlooking the cathedral. Clear blue skies made for a spectacular view. By far the best thing about the hotel are the staff. This is best exemplified by Nicola who provided a friendly warm welcome, and took time to ensure everything was as we'd hoped....

I agree with other 'reporters' it needs some TLC to get it to a standard it deserves, the 60s style from the outside looks grey, they should keep the style but needs attention. There on business and it seems to depend on which room you get as to whether it is good, bad or indifferent, a colleague had a Cathedral...

Love the lunch deal on a travelzoo voucher. Great service, lovely food, small intimate dining room. Would definitely recommend. Easy to find with car park, opposite Lincoln Castle & a short walk down steep hill to the main shopping area. Hike back up not so quick (steep hill☺)

Unfortunately I don't have much of a choice in where I stay as I'm constrained by my company's budget. Normally I find somewhere better to stay, but every now and then I'm dumped in the tired, dated and smelly - yes, smelly Lincoln Hotel. There is a unique smell in the corridors, most probably from the carpets which haven't been...
