Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 April 2013 via mobile

We dropped on this guesthouse and managed to get a room for £40. The woman we spoke to was very friendly, kind & nice. The room was clean & warm which was perfect as it was freezing!!! The breakfast was standard fayre and no vegetarian options but all in all a decent stay. Oh & only a 10 minute walk to the main stuff...

Thought we would write about our recent experience at the admiral , came with my friend for a girls night out. Found some really good pubs and night clubs , and all in walking distance which is what you need on a night out. Nothing wrong with this place large bathroom next to the room large mirrors for getting ready which was a plus booked with no breakfast for a cheaper rate.
Large carparking we will be back .

Stayed there for 4 nights and the place is depressing as soon as you walk in, weird smells masked by lot of air fresheners. The worst of it is the state of the room I stayed in, the furniture is ancient, dirty floor and tiny en suite with a shower that is at best a tepid dribble. The whole room made you feel grubby, the lady owner had a lip on all the time and you weren't made to feel welcome at all. I am not a moaner and in fact this is my first review on here but I felt I have to tell people the truth of this place. Avoid. Ps the next door neighbours in the adjoining building are so loud they play music all night until 4 in the morning and crash around banging and shouting, hardly slept at all and that's with earplugs in! No fault of the hotel but its not what u need when u are paying money for a place to rest

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!
