“Great view of Lincoln Cathedral”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2014

We stayed one night at the Lincoln Hotel because it was close to Lincoln Cathedral where we were going to an evening concert. Our room was comfortable and pleasantly decorated and there was a lovely view of the cathedral which was a short walk away. The breakfast was good, the staff were helpful, the parking was free and we thought that it was very good value. We regretted that we had only stayed a night instead of booking for the weekend.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the hotel with a view of the cathedral

Was pleasantly surprised. Hotel was easy to find. Check in went smoothly. Car parking was free because we booked online. We ate in the hotel. Food was lovely although small portion size and was more expensive than we'd normal pay. £24 each for 2 courses. We walked down steep hill but tax i'd back after exploring (£4.20 so very good). Breakfast was fine. Check out simple. All in all a good hotel in a central location.

Dear Guest

Thank you for your review, I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us at The Lincoln Hotel.

It is also very pleasing to hear your positive comments about the standard of food in the Green Room Restaurant. All the staff are even more excited now as the Green Room Restaurant has just recently won Restaurant of the Year in the Select Lincolnshire Food, Drink & Hospitality Awards 2014.

However, I am slightly disappointed as it sounds like you may not have been aware of our DBB rate. If you were to have upgraded to the dinner, bed & breakfast package, you would have been entitled to a three course dinner for £25 per person.

We do feel that £25 is a fair price for three courses whilst dining in an AA Rosette restaurant. In addition, all our menu items are individually priced so that the two course option is available from £15-£24.

In the meantime, thank you again for your comments and I do hope that we can look forward to
welcoming you back on your next visit.

Yours sincerely

A great hotel in central Lincoln bang next to the minster and castle - staff very friendly and the food was superb + the room we had included a garden - WOW
Having its own secure carpark was an added bonus
We will be back as the saying goes

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a Garden

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
