Hillcrest is in a great location for Lincoln, being just a short walk from the cathedral, castle and Steep Hill. The hotel overlooks the aboretum, which makes for a quiet, peaceful location. We enjoyed the views both from our room and the delightful conservatory, where we enjoyed a pre-dinner G&T later.
The room was an adequate size and the en suite, while small, met our needs - though we did spot a bit of mould in the corner in the shower (hence only 4 stars). Style wise, the room and hotel in general are decorated in a classic style, but with a contemporary feel. It definitely has the feel of a fairly fresh refurbishment, so some of the older reviews here that says it is outdated are possibly outdated themselves now.
Breakfast was lovely, my husband enjoyed the full English, while I went for one of the lighter options. Both very nice, and the service was excellent, as it was throughout our stay.
In general we would recommend Hillcrest and would return if back in the area.More
