My husband and I stayed for 5 nights in the middle of August. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the room was very clean and spacious. Breakfast was excellent. The hospitality was also 1st class, we will definitely be visiting again!!

Once again my son is off to Afghanistan and I have driven up from my home in France to see him before he flies out and to let him know first hand how much I love him ,and to keep your head down. I went online and found the travellers dream. A small hotel/guest house that really looks after you. It is called the Tennyson and has just[two weeks] been taken over by a young couple. I booked in for three nights, After a long drive up from home I was met at the door by the owner and invited in with a wonderful cup of tea and shown my room.After a sound nights sleep and a refreshing shower I went down to a breakfast that was fantastic.My three days went too fast,but my stay at the Tennyson was absolutely great. Next time I am back in Lincoln I will be staying at the Tennyson as it is the perfect Home from Home. Alan Normandy. France

Room Tip: My room was great as I am sure all the others are. If you stay more than a week you will put on ooun...

So many places are easily forgettable because they are just like all the others. I find that the memorable ones (not the bad ones) stand out because of small but different features. The Tennyson was one of these: the home-made biscuits, renewed every day, clean towels every day, teddy bear on the bed (!), breakfast menu in 13 different languages.
The single room was spacious enough, though the shower room was tiny. It was on the ground floor and traffic noise went through the night ( no great Problem for heavy sleepers like me, but worth knOwing if you're not). Very comfy, clean bed.
Breakfast varied and well cooked every day-will give you any version of a cooked breakfast within reason.
Good value for money if you stay more than 2 nights cos 3rd night is free. Free wifi access.
20 mins walk from town centre. Places to eat of varying style and quality.
Would certainly stay again.

lovely place situated just outside the city outskirts yet a nice walk into town or short bus ride from round the corner rooms are nice and cosy and the breakfasts are superb! Nice choice of different language menus..proprietors were very helpful and couldnt do enough..took advantage of the 3 for 2 room rate special and am glad i did..would definitely stay here again..Lincolns pubs are well worth a visit but be warned...the hill is not for the faint hearted but its a beautiful city and well worth visiting and a lovely place to stay.excellent overall

I recently stayed at this B+B and was made to feel welcome by both Jeff and his wife. The accomodation was clean and spacious and a good location for walking into Lincoln. Breakfast generous and cooked to order. Would recommend a stay especially if you are in Lincoln for 3 days and avail yourself of the 3 days for the price of 2 offer - good value for money.

Room Tip: Mr and Mrs Brimbles room is quiet and spacious.
