I stay in Lincoln a lot and normally go for a large holiday chain which is at the other end of town. I decided to try the Tennyson mainly because the price for 2 nights was the same as what I normally pay for one night. Therefore, my expectations were pretty low especially as it is no secret that this...

Beautiful hotel within a 30mins walking distance of the cathedral. But there were busses along the high street road. The hotel was clean, newly decorated and well maintained. With everything you need in the room. Nothing to complain about really. The 'help yourself' continental breakfast - we skipped it tbh - not that inviting. But some may enjoy.

I've stayed at The Tennyson a few times before this May trip. On my previous stay, I've been very pleased. The location, the staff and the breakfast very good. I had even rated it excellent on Booking.com on my first stay. This month, I needed to stay 2 nights in Lincoln and when I rang to book, I was told...

We booked The Tennyson hotel four a visit to the cathedral city of Lincoln. We chose it based on its value for money Ann's parking availability. Unfortunately a week before our planned stay I received a phone call stating that cooked breakfast will no longer be available and that continental would be available only, I was told I could change...

Stayed here for a week and was one of the best places I've stayed! Everything was done to a high standard and the quality of the room was fantastic. Would recommend this to anyone staying in Lincoln, it's perfect 😊

Stayed here last Saturday. We got there really early about 11am and check in time was 4pm. The lady let us check in straight away. This was really kind and helpful and was no problem to her. The room was really clean and had a really good bathroom. The breakfast was really good and again the lady had exceptional customer...

Nice place, only has a few (6) rooms but our room had that 'attention to detail' that you hope for, but don't always get i.e ear plugs, hair dryer, sewing kit, torch, free bottled water and sweets. Usual expectations such as TV, tea/coffee facilities, access to ironing board etc. Has a fully functional shower suite in bathroom, which is modern...

We stayed here for two nights, Sat 11th to Mon 13th March 2017. Upon our arrival, with the advertised free parking, we were warmly greeted and given a comprehensive introduction to Lincoln; advice of the local restaurants, hostelries (of which there are many if you are real ale fans), and the best ofs to see with the time you have...
