“Great value for money”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

Great value for money, we paid £49.50 a night for a room with double bed and sofa bed so could have had 4 people, (although would have been very squashed). But for one night on a night out would have been excellent value for money.

Free breakfast, self service which was nice.

The room was clean and bathroom adequate

The only down side of this hotel is that it is a little further away from centre then the rest of the hotels , (but only 10 minutes walk) but lets face it for the price worth the walk.

Room Tip: Go for one with sofa bed as you get chair to sit on

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.

Had to stay in Lincoln for a long weekend and would normally have stayed at the Holiday Inn but as that was fully booked I booked into the Express not expecting much but was very suprised by the hotel.

The staff were excellent and nothing seemed to be to much effort, the rooms are clean and very large. The only downside to the hotel is that wireless access is only availaible in the lobby and not bedrooms. This means that if you are working from something like an IPad or other tablet you have to go to the bar however having said that its free.

All in all a good stay

Stayed here for two nights on a city break. The hotel is a short walk from the train station and the city centre. The staff are attentive and range from very friendly to extremely helpful. The hotel is purpose-built and very well designed, the rooms aren't huge but well thought through, the space utilised very well and they have everything you need. The decor is modern but comfortable and the beds are very comfortable. The bar area is very nice and doesn't have that awful "hotel bar" decor about it. Breakfast was good, only gripe is that the coffee is awful. Free wi-fi is available in the bar/restaurant area downstairs, easy to connect to and a good fast connection. We booked with www.bestratebeds.com and got a very good price, it was much less than other hotels in Lincoln I looked at and given the quality of the hotel and the level of service I am delighted with how little we paid. Oh, and the hotel is spotlessly clean to boot. It was excellent for a romantic trip away but would be equally good for business travellers.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the quieter side of the hotel to avoid traffic noise.

We originally booked into the holiday inn but were transferred due to over booking. I can not do anything other than praise this great hotel. The staff are happy, attentive and helpful at ALL times. On arrival we were given a full apology, although it was the other hotels fault for the booking problems. The reception were helpful in all aspects of our stay. The rooms are have all that is needed, are clean and well cared for.
I realised when I got home that I had left my phone charger in the room, I phoned the hotel (it was nice to have a number that was answered straight away by a human) they had already found my charger and have offered posted it back to my home address free of charge. I would definately recommend this hotel although a little out of the town centre the staff of this hotel make up for the walk.
