Great stay would go again.Room was very nice with a cathedral view that i didnt book which was a great suprise. Breakfast was beautiful dont miss it. All the staff were very pleasant and helpful. If you are staying for one night book your restaurant in advance. Struggled to get in anywhere for dinner. Tried to get in the Bronze Pig and the Jew House + a few others all full. Ended up in the Thai no 1, ok but table was badly situated.

We were recently in Lincoln for wedding and stayed in The Lincoln Hotel. There were some good restaurants and pubs nearby. The staff were excellent - very friendly and helpful, and although not a new hotel it was clean and comfortable room. In terms of value for money, The Lincoln Hotel will be very hard to beat!

Stayed here on business. Plenty of free parking, check in was quick and easy. The room was average size but nicely decorated. Location was right nice to the cathedral so if your sight seeing would be a great base. Wi Fi is free of charge as well, you just have to enter your email on the browser. Eat in the resturant, the food was ok, but thought the portions were quite small and left still hungry, cost £24 for a starter and main which is fair value.

Staff were all very nice and when I asked if they could drop an iron off at my room the did so straight away.

There is a gym in the hotel as well but I didn't use it so couldn't comment if it was good, I checked the website before hand to see if there was a gym and couldn't see a referance to it anywhere so presumed there wasn't one, so didn't bring my gear.

I found the bed to be very very hard. Breakfast was pretty poor I thought, I went for scrambled egg on toast and the egg was almost cold even though it was on a hot plate.

Check out was quick and easy as well.

Would stay again if I was in the area

Dear Guest

Thank you for taking the time to post a response on our trip advisor website following your recent visit to The Lincoln Hotel.

I was sorry to read of your disappointment with your comfort and breakfast experience, please accept my apologies for this. This certainly isn’t the ‘norm’ as we usually receive many positive reviews for our breakfast service, so I will look into rectifying this immediately.

Although we do have images of the gym within our website gallery, following your comments, I will certainly look into amending the text on the website to highlight this better for future guests.

In the meantime, thank you once again for your comments as we do appreciate all feedback. Hopefully we can look forward to welcoming you back to The Lincoln Hotel in the near future.

Yours sincerely

Just returned from a girlie weekend in Lincoln, I know this hotel really well & it gets better with each visit. They have up graded the tv system lately which I'm hugely impressed with. Along with the iPod docking stations.
Great food & fabulous staff, my next trip is already booked.

We loved this hotel from the moment we arrived. Very cosy and comfy and the staff were all so pleasant and helpful. We had 2 lovely rooms at the front with a fabulous view of the cathedral. Being set back from the road there was no road noise at all. The rooms were spotlessly clean and with plenty of space. The bathrooms had large, walk-in showers and there was always plenty of hot water. Breakfasts were fabulous and the restaurant very good value for evening meals. Free parking. A lovely comfy lounge with newspaers and magazines. Real ale in the bar! What more could you want?

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have fabulous views of the cathedral.
