My wife and I had looked forward to two nights in a great small city and chose this place after reading other reviews.
The appearance of this gaunt building sandwiched between the MacDonalds and Morrisons was not encouraging - but at least the cathedral was in sight still. Though the location for tourist activity is OK - it is far from the best even at the price. Car parking is a charged extra - listen closely to how to work the barrier system!
The room was OK - not large,but clean enough. The carpet could have benefited from a shampoo and the complementary services in the room were weak - we had to ask for tea bags etc during stay.
Far the worst feature of the stay were the breakfasts. They were basically a 'university hall' service. The same each day, little choice was available, and the scrambled egg was sloppy and unpalatable. The sausages lacked taste and seating was uncomfortable.
The reception staff did a lot to recover from the very worst kind of experience.
Do the business people - or those visiting the nearby University - not want something better on visiting Lincoln. We certainly will!
