“First class hospitality”
Reviewed 12 September 2013

A two night stay during which the hosts excelled with their welcoming hospitality. Very good room well equipped with everything one could wish for. The addition of a guset's lounge was a nice touch. Within walking distance of the varied amenities that Saxelby has to offer.

We had a very enjoyable short stay at Canal View. We found the modern furnishings and comfortable bed a pleasure. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean with every need catered for. The location was ideal for visiting Lincoln and the canal-side was perfect for a nice walk which unfortunately we did not have time for as we only stayed one night and had to leave early. Breakfast was great and our hosts were very friendly and helpful recommending somewhere for dinner. We chose the nearby Bottle and Glass in Harby which served home made food at a reasonable price in a nice village setting. We would definitely return to Canal View and would highly recommend it.

We spent two great nights in this delightful house with very welcoming hosts, including pretty Grace who was a great character. Our room was spotless and the bed very comfortable. Everything we needed was there, and it was so good to have fresh milk in the fridge instead of UHT! Breakfast was delicious, with great variety. We enjoyed the village trail and the relaxing canal, chatting to boat owners and to a lovely lady when we travelled on the bus to Lincoln (so easy). Short walk to The Sun which proved a very good place for a meal. There was nothing to fault and we would highly recommend Canal View to anyone.

This is the fourth year we have stayed at Canal View. We cannot fault it; the accommodation is a very high standard and the breakfasts absolutely delicious. Always spotlessly clean with gorgeous feather duvets and pillows and lovely extras like fresh milk, ground coffee, biscuits and nice toiletries.
Roland, Louise and Grace are excellent hosts and have thought of everything that you could possibly need. We will be back next year!

We've just had three very comfortable nights at Canal View. Roland and Louise made us very welcome. The bedrooms are very clean and nicely decorated, but not cluttered. Plenty of space for my own stuff. Nice beds with lovely cotton sheets and duvets. Excellent breakfasts with real, locally sourced food. The marmalade and homemade jam are delicious.
Canal View is also a short walk from Saxilby railway station and we used the train to go in to Lincoln.

We booked a 2 night weekend stay at Canal View based on previous reviews by other people and the facts it was well placed for where we were visiting and also child friendly. We were not in the least dissapointed with the weekend. We took our 2 yr old grandson for a weekend to visit Sundown Adventureland (7 miles away, also 100% must do!), and stayed with Roland & Louise for the period. Right from arrival on Fri evening we were made welcome, with a cup of Tea and a slice or two of cake. The residence is totally clean, modern and well put together. The room we had was a little cramped but we knew that before we arrived, as Roland explained during booking that a travel cot (supplied) would fit but cramp it a little. The beds are most comfortable and ensured a good night's sleep But the stay at Canal View more than compensated. Breakfast is a stylised and enjoyable as the decor and the rooms. Enough cereal, fruit juices, toast, hot meal choices as one could wish for and totally filling. The ambience is just right, friendly but not overbearing, but always there to help. Roland pointed out that one local pub in particular ( The Woodcock) at Burton Waters (2 miles) has a 2 for 1 meal deal on every evening. We ate there both nights, as it has a kiddies fenced off play area, and the meal deal ensured more value for money throught the weekend.. even deal on steak's too !! In all, Roland, Louise and there helpful daughter Grace cannot do enough to ensure your stay is enjoyable, value for money and a place you would love to return to again. we for one will be back when visiting the Lincoln area in future.

A very warm welcome on arrival with coffee and local cake in the guest lounge. Our room was excellently appointed, sparklingly clean, and with all one would expect for a comfortable stay, especially appreciated was fresh milk in the mini fridge and fresh ground coffee ready to go.
Great, freshly cooked breakfast with locally sourced products for the 'Full English' and plenty of cereal or 'lighter things' for those with an alternative preference.
Our hosts' local knowledge provided us with an excellent evening meal venue without having to travel into Lincoln.
Altogether a very good choice and a splendid base from which to explore the area.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend a stay.
