We booked this hotel for an overnight stay thro' Secret Escapes. The location is ideal and has plenty of parking which is a bonus in a place like Lincoln. We had a standard room which was spacious and comfortable plus it had a big bathroom. The staff were lovely and friendly and the choice at breakfast was excellent. We cannot...

This hotel has a really great location. Car parking on site at rear. Basic room is fine. Clean and bed comfortable. Shower a bit temperamental. Breakfast varied and good value. Great view over breakfast of the cathedral.

I can't remember when I stayed somewhere so poor. Reception staff were criticising the previous customer when we checked in. The corridor smells of urine. The place has a hostel feel to it. Beds uncomfortable. There were biscuit crumbs on the Chair. It's only saving grace is that it's opposite the beautiful cathedral.
