“A home away from home”
Reviewed 19 November 2007

We stayed at the Gables a second time, having stayed here a year earlier, and being highly impressed at that time.

Apart from being a lovely home, with beautiful modern rooms, it is the little touches that help to make this an exceptional place to stay. Things like tea towels to dry your cups, face washers in the shower, and an iron and ironing board.

There are blankets on the bed instead of winter weight doonas, which is a really nice touch to all those B & B's who persist on putting winter weight duvets on beds, and wondering why guests complain about getting too hot in bed! It is nice ot be able to throw off a blanket if you are getting too warm.

It is close to several restaurants, and not too far to Lincoln. Dave and Jo are the perfect hosts, and they provide a great breakfast.

Having travelled extensively through the UK, I have no hesitation in recommending the Gables as one of only two B&B's I have stayed in that are of exceptional quality. The owners are tuned into the needs of the traveller, and this is reflected in the quality of their product. Stay there, you will not be disappointed. We will be back.

Reviewed 23 October 2007

We stayed here for one night when we were house-hunting in Lincolnshire. The house was immaculately clean and tastefully decorated, and our room was very comfortable. The en suite shower room, with its double shower, was particuarly nice, and the towels were thick and soft. Breakfast was good, and the owners were friendly and helpful. Another point worthy of note was that there was ample parking for the number of rooms available - not always the case at many guest houses. We would certainly recommend The Gables.

  • Liked — Cleanliness, excellent en suite.
  • Disliked — Was only able to get a twin room, as there were no doubles available - it's obviously popular!

We couldn't have found a better place than The Gables; friendly, helpful service right from our first telephone enquiry, no need for pages of praise---simply the best!

Reviewed 30 December 2006

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at the Gables on the 23rd December 06, which is situated in North Hykeham just outside of Lincoln.

The guest house is one of the best, if not the best guest house we have stayed in.

The Guest house and the room we stayed in were very nicely decorated and the en-suite bathroom was modern, very clean and a good size.

The owners Dave and Jo were extremely helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was excellent, using good quality fresh produce from local suppliers.

The Gables is ideally located for visiting the beautiful city of Lincoln and the surrounding area.
