“Very cosy and with plenty of character”
Reviewed 4 July 2013

The Admiral is an excellent place for short or long visits. I have stayed in Nikki and Andrew's guest house on numerous occasions, and I can recommend this place very highly. All rooms where I have stayed have plenty of character, lots of historical charm, and great character. The guest house is conveniently placed, very close (5 minutes) to the Brayford University campus, railway station (15 minutes) and High Street (12 minutes). Nikki and Andrew are a very friendly couple and go the extra length to accommodate their guests' needs. I definitely encourage people to stay at the Admiral, as it is excellent value for money as well.

Stayed here in early June, sharing a twin with a friend. Reasonably priced at £55 for the room with ensuite facilities and tea and coffee. Whilst i could have done with an additional pillow or two, the bed itself was fine.

If i was to be picky i'd say the decor was a touch dated but that wasn't what i booked the room for. You can pay a lot more for the supposed budget hotels in Lincoln and for a place to crash after a night out this fits the bill.

I didn't try the breakfast due to feeling worse for wear the following morning but it's good to know it's there should you want it. I would stay here again.

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.
