The Holiday Inn Express in Lincoln is a modern hotel. All very new and looking good. Whilst providing a budget price, this is definitely a cut above a Travelodge. The rooms are nicely fitted out and quite stylish and the big plus, breakfast is included.
This hotel is on a major road junction, but there was little traffic noise in the room. Closeby are a number of fast-food type restaurants and an out-of-town shopping centre. A five minute walk to the "High Street" and there is a Wetherspoons (The Ritz) just around the corner, whilst even nearer is a buffet style Chinese restaurant (YoYo in Beijing).
The walk into the old town for the Cathedral and Castle takes probably around half an hour, and is uphill most of the way (including the very aptly named "Steep Hill"). You can get to the modern shopping area more quickly and the railway station is around 10 minutes walk away. A little out of the way in the evenings, but otherwise ok. Very convenient to get to/from by car as well, as dont' have to fight through city centre traffic.
The breakfast is a help-yourself buffet, with cereals, yoghurt, bread, croissants, cheese, fruit and cooked items (sausage, scrambled egg and baked beans). No bacon for some reason. Whilst busy, there was never too long a queue and always sufficient seating. All the food selections were kept well topped up.
The hotel has it's own carpark - £5 charge per day or £4 if you are a Priority Club member.
