A Weekend in Cardiff at the Lincoln House Hotel was very pleasant. The hotel is ideally situated and is an easy walk to the centre or the bay. The hotel is comfortable and welcoming. The staff we met were very helpful and friendly. The breakfasts were very good. Car parking is limited so get there early . The location is very nice with a number of restaurants and bars locally, listed in the hotel information book along with a brief local history.

We chose the hotel as a central base for our Xmas shopping weekend in Cardiff and thought the reviews were very good too. The hotel is a large old Victorian property in a nice area. Unfortunately we couldn't park in the car park as not many spaces available, but managed to park in the road opposite the hotel. The hotel is old fashioned, a bit tired, needs updating, some love and attention, which is a shame as it could be an impressive Hotel. Rooms were ok, but in need of a good intense, deep clean, as did the modern bathroom and shower. The windows surround in the bathroom I imagine, haven't be cleaned for a very long time. Having said that, the beds were comfy, we slept well and enjoyed a lovely breakfast with friendly service. Unfortunately the heating in one of the rooms wasn't working and the room was cold, although rectified later. We felt the cost of £85 PN didn't reflect well. Many thanks, but we won't be returning.

Arrived to a freezing cold room as the radiator was not working! Floor was not hoovered and also no heating in the bathroom. The man in reception was pretty unhelpful, however he did manage to get 2 electric heaters and hoovered the room whilst we were out - with a lot of persuasion from us. Couldn’t move rooms as fully booked. Shower temperamental running intermittently hot & cold. Sorry I would not recommend this hotel as at £170 a night I would expect a better room and service.

This is a gem of a small hotel. It is situated on Cathedral Road with good bars and restaurants nearby and the town centre and Principality Stadium are a few minutes’ walk away. There is a small free secure car park behind the hotel and plenty of free on-street parking if it is full. The rooms are spacious, quiet and spotless, with high ceilings and a comfy sofa. Breakfast is excellent and the staff are friendly but unobtrusive. The hotel offers excellent value for money. We will certainly visit again.

Car parking a nightmare, rudest little man on reception I’ve ever met, given a room with 2 single beds when we were supposed to have a super king, but the man on reception done it for me, would never stay again
