    Had an overnight stay in the suite. Beautiful room and equally gorgeous bathroom. Lovely breakfast with great views of Lincoln Cathedral from the dining room. Location couldn't be better at the top of Steep Hill, literally a few minutes walk from the Cathedral and Castle.

    Thank you for mentioning how warm the room was. Could you not turn down the heat? Did windows not open? I don't like to be hot. Also, you say B&B not a hotel. The difference? I like my own room and bathroom. Thank you.
