My wife and I decided to stay at this hotel for our wedding anniversary - without the kids. Booked through Topcashback / Expedia, £99 for a double room with breakfast, no problems checking in earlier than we really should, we had a room on the 3rd floor near the lift with a good view of the castle and cathedral. Well sound insulated - we were not bothered with people coming and going on the lift.
The bed was very comfy with both hard and soft pillows. Tea and coffee making facilities were there, but instead we drank wine and reveled in the child-free quiet.
The hotel is well placed for all of the amenities of Brayford Pool - lots of restaurants, a cinema, and the rest of Lincoln's a short walk away. As a result the only meal we had at the hotel was breakfast, a perfectly fine buffet arrangement.
So why not five stars? Well, a couple of issues, really: the bath was rather small. I'm no giant - well under 6' - and was rather hunched up in the tub. And the room was quite cold, you had to juggle two different heaters, one of which was rather slow to react to changes in the settings. Minor things, but enough to knock off a star.
No problems with the staff, all of whom that we spoke to were efficient, friendly and polite.
Shame it all had to end and we had to go home and pick up the kids, really!
