“We are going back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2012

We'll be going back next year. The Admiral Guest House is friendly, warm and clean. The breakfasts’ are amazing and it's close enough to the castle and the centre of Lincoln to be convenient. Nikki, the proprieties is very lovely and friendly. I would recommend the Admiral to anybody going to Lincoln.

The room was tiny and being only 5 ft tall even I had to watch out for hitting head on tv etc the en-suite was tiny your knees hit the door when you were on the toilet, there was a large chair which either blocked the wardrobe and drawers or blocked the rest of the room, the wallpaper was coming away, didn't sleep for three nights as local students coming home from bars etc were screaming in the street, needs double glazing. However the bed was comfy the room was clean, and the breakfasts were very nice, as other people have said don't stay in room 8. Very expensive for what you got.

Room Tip: Ask which rooms are at the back of the hotel.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Admiral this weekend for one night. The Admiral is a small, cozy, endearingly quirky guesthouse within a stone's throw of the centre of Lincoln..literally a 3 minute stroll to the wharf and quayside. With the added bonus of off street parking I was given a very warm welcome by Nikki who was very accommodating about the possibility of last minute changes to my booking. The room was adequate and comfy and very clean, although a little old fashioned..but I quite liked that! Breakfast prepared by Andrew was superb served in a delightful, cheery dining room with the news on the tv discreetly in the corner..again something I liked. Extremely pleasant stay with very reasonable rates. See you again soon I expect!

Our Third visit and we were pleased that the standards had not gone down a very warm, comfortable, clean and welcoming Guest house, our room was called the admiral and it had a charm of its own,the breakfast was very good and we arrived as old guests and left as friend we will certainly be going back

Our latest visit (3rd Aug 2012) we stayed in room 2 (ground floor) the room was very clean and fresh with a quirky coastal decor theme

To be fair its a very old building (not a purpose built hotel) if you want to wake up with immaculate wall paper, pay the extra £30 and stay in a multi chain hotel, or you can stay at somewhere like the Admiral and receive a warm friendly welcome with a homely feel

Its a 10 minute walk along a beautiful tow path and past teh Brayford wharf into the city centre

We would highly recommend the Admiral

Room Tip: We've stayed in room 8 twice and room 2 once, both very nice rooms
