“Excellent guest house, best breakfast ever”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

Stopped here for 1 night recently and can't praise it highly enough. We stopped in room 4 which despite facing the road was beautiful and wonderfully fitted out. They even supplied ear plugs if you did find the noise from the road annoying.
The bathroom was fantastic and the bedroom was furnished wonderfully. The breakfast in the morning was probably the best I,ve ever had at a b&b and was only spoilt by the fact I was too hung over to enjoy it properly. The lady that ran the place couldn't do enough to help you and obviously took great pride in the place.
The only real down side is the road which is a bit noisey and the fact it's a little bit of a walk into the city centre.
Other than that I can't speak highly enough about this place.

My husband and I stayed for 1 night while visiting Lincoln and we were not disappointed. South Park is a traditional guest house situated approx 20 minutes walk from the City. The staff were very pleasant and fresh coffee, tea and cakes were provided free on our arrival which was a nice touch. The room we had was very clean with nice white bedding and a good powerful en suite shower. Plenty of coffee, tea and hot chocolate provided in the room with biscuits and even a few chocolates! There's good Wi-fi connection and a computer in the lounge which guests can use. The breakfast was superb! Fresh fruit juices, coffee and tea, plenty of cereal choices, a breakfast menu from which we both had the full English and as much fresh toast as we wanted. Eggs, bacon, sausage, etc. all cooked to perfection. Delicious! Could not fault it at all and would highly recommend.

My fiancé and I stayed here for just one night on a mini-break visiting Lincoln. We booked our room about a week in advance and had high hopes for the B&B. Needless to say, it delivered on all our expectations and then some! The guest house was comfy, welcoming and beautifully decorated, not to mention owned, run and maintained by the wonderful Jackie. Jackie was, by far, the most eager to please and ingratiating woman I've ever met and she truly made the difference between a good stay and a great one, nothing was out of the question for her and she would often go out of the way to ensure we had absolutely everything we needed, truly the hostess with the mostest!

The breakfast was incredible; loads to choose from with the fry-up being the centrepiece. All of which was done exactly to your specifications and with no bother whatsoever if you wanted to swap one or more items, simply the most pleasant breakfast experience I've had while staying away from home.

The room was spotless, spacious and comfortable giving us enough space to feel we could lounge around for a bit if we felt we needed to while also enabling us to use it as just a "base" to come back to in between plans. The shower, however was the real coup de grace. It felt like a spa quality wet room in the middle of a Lincoln B&B - a real treat.

All in all, I cannot talk this place up enough, the only way to find out how wonderful this place is, is to go and see for yourself. I urge you to book now, you won't regret it.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the park have a better view and it's worth paying the little bit extra for the en s...

We stayed for 1 night of the Valentine weekend, we were overwhelmed as soon as we walked in with the free coffee,tea and cakes on offer. We could not fault the room at all as it was one of the most comfortable and cleanest we have ever stayed in. The breakfast the next morning was really incredible, we have already recommended this Bed and Breakfast to our friends and would have not hesitation in staying here again.

This by far the BEST B&B we have ever stayed in, you cannot want for anything more, Jackie could not possibly do anything more to make your stay more welcoming and comfortable, my Husband and I went Valentine weekend and Jackie had a red rose for all guests, this was such a lovely gesture, along with chocolates, biscuits, cakes and sweets not only in your room but in the reception and lounge, with lovely hot coffee and soft drinks available in the lounge in the afternoon and evenings, any Hotel/B&B can offer a room and breakfast but its all the extras that Jackie puts in place to make this establishment what it is a true little gem and as for the breakfasts, there is nothing that is not available, Jackie certainly thinks of everything, Thanks for a lovely weekend Jackie, Tracy and Peter.

Room Tip: The shower in room 6 was amazing, but if you want a bath room 5 looks very nice.

You could not ask for a better B & B, its a lovely old house. Jackie could not do enough for you very warm and welcoming. We had 2 nights from 13/1/14. Jackie's Breakfast is one of the best nothing to much trouble. In the residents lounge there is always fresh Coffee, Tea etc with cake and biscuits just like home. It was very nice to stay in a B & B that was spotless no mean feat in an old house, Jackie and her help, work very hard to deliver you a lovely stay, and may I say they definitely delivered that for us. Thank you Jackie
