“Fantastic Hotel”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

Great hotel,great service. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for accommodation or great food in Lincoln. Room 6 was fabulous. Staff incredibly helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Paid a lot more money in other hotels in the past and not as good as this one.

Room Tip: Room 6 was excellent, top floor

As many others have written, this is the perfect location for visiting the castle and cathedral as they are less than two minutes walk away The staff were very friendly and helpful and the room clean and comfortable and the breakfast superb. There was an unfortunate noise issue which affected sleep for a while but we were very happy with the way that it was handled by reception and would definitely come back here again.

We had a last minute room at this hotel this weekend, the staff were very friendly. The room (No.16) was to a good standard, however would have benefitted from brighter lighting. The bed was comfortable with a firm mattress. The hotel does have a busy bar, however with the windows closed there was no problem with noise. Breakfast was lovely in the morning, however we did have to remind them we were still waiting after 30 mins. We would stay again and the location was great for the cathedral quarter

We stayed in the tower with the aim of visiting the cathedral - open till evensong at 15.30 fish this Sunday and old. Lincoln. The hotel was ideal, car parking is in the NCP park opposite, the hotel help with the cost. Roomwas great, we eat out as no dinner on a Sunday - the hotel is close to the restaurant area in the old town. breakfast was very good. Great beds and staff who were all friendly

I took my mom for an afternoon tea to this hotel based on the reviews here on trip advisor. After a mix up with their reservations book which left us standing in the hall while they searched for our reservation, the whole experience was lovely. I had communicated with the hotel a week previously about what could be offered for is as vegetarians and the responses where always prompt and helpful. We loved the whole experience and would definitely go back.

Started a new job back in April travelling the country and this is by far the best hotel I've stayed in yet by a country mile. All staff are very friendly and will go that extra mile for you. Glyn who cooks the breakfasts is fabulous and his food is the best ever, enjoyed it every morning and he even made us earlier breakfasts as we had to be out early for work. Would recommend to anyone staying in Lincoln to sample glyns breakfast especially the Lincolnshire sausages :) wouldn't stay anywhere else in Lincoln apart from from The Tower Hotel. Inside and out this hotel is brilliant, well maintained and cleaned daily and the beds you just wouldn't get out in the morning as there so comfy and inviting. Thank you so much.
