Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

What a fantastic place. Lots of parking. Great outside grounds [very family / Dog friendly] Play areas really nice outside seating areas. Comfortable bed - nice bath and shower. Matt and Claire obviously run the pub and hotel in a way that the staff are like family (all went about and beyond) there was approximately 70 of us. Back of house staff / front of house staff all had a smile and friendly greeting. The Bar staff definitely earned their Christmas Bonus looking after us. Justyna, Mitch, James and Oliver were just a few of the staff too many to mention. Allie was amazing. Food good value - and cooked to perfection Music - live band Football on TV POOL TABLE was fun [Tommy taking on our best player at the end of the night] Dart board.. Really great place to stay

I've just returned home from an extended weekend get-together with our group of older bikers. The service we had was beyond reproach, all the staff bent over backwards to make our stay the most enjoyable few days. Matt, the manager, what a bloke! He couldn't do enough for us. Ali, the 'no-nonsense supervisor, she's a real star. Mary also needs special praise. In fact, every member of Matt's team went the 'extra mile to make our stay effortless and memorable. The rooms were spotless, the restaurant also spotless, the food, was great quality, and also hot, which is difficult to achieve when serving 70 at the same time. The bar staff and drinks waiters are faultless. The attention to detail, the efficiency, and the friendliness all deserve a mention. Thank you to Woodcock's for a perfect weekend.

Fantastic place to stay..went with a group of 70..the staff were great,, nothing was to much trouble. Even though we r a diverse group the staff stepped up and made us feel at home. The rooms r clean and spacious, everything u need. I was here for 4 days and will stay again. ALI went above and beyond her duties funny helpful and a pleasure to be around. Tom behind the bar was a nice and fun person to be served by. The manager also went above and beyond, I won a picture, which was to big for my bike. I asked if they could send to my home, with me paying for postage. No problem for the woodcocks. Thank u for a great stay Try for yourself Great place

Booked this because we wanted easy parking for a trip to Lincoln. Got a good deal on Marstons website and prepaid for breakfast. Room was clean and spacious, bathroom with bath/ shower, shower gel on the wall. There was a kettle in the room and coffee and tea and biscuits provided. We ate in the Inn for the two nights with their great food deals which made it easier than looking round Lincoln for somewhere to eat. We walked along the Fossdyke Navigation into Lincoln which took around 50 mins or so…but there is a bus which runs a few times a day which picks up at Burton Waters ( next door housing/ shopping/dining area). Staff were friendly with giving us info around surrounding areas and what to see and do.

This was our third visit to Woodcocks in Lincoln. Immediately on arrival we noticed that things had changed for he better since our previous visit. The staff were very welcoming and were prepared to go out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The body language of the staff was very positive and they seemed to be enjoying their work. In particular we would like to single out a young lady called Alli who was particularly helpful in making our stay in Lincoln a enjoyable one. She was very attentive and gave us a lot of information about the City and sorted out a bus timetable so that we did not have to drive into the city which was really busy because of road works. She should go a long way in the hospitality industry. The rooms were large, clean secure and complete with air conditioning. Very Good value for money

This was a great hotel to attend the Geocaching Mega event. The staff are so helpful and friendly and we had no complaints about the reasonably priced food. Yes, one night we had to wait as the restaurant was packed and we didn't book.
