The welcome is warm and efficient. The parking is convenient but is first come first served and limited. The location is good and is only a few minutes, steep, walk from the Cathedral. If you book a suite you might get a view across the Brayford Pool. We had asked for a room with a view but were given a room with a view of a wall, which was disappointing. The rooms and bathrooms are a good size with a large comfortable bed. The decor is grey with the usual blandness preferred by most chains. It is a pity they don't try to give their rooms some character especially if they are trying to appeal to tourists rather than business travellers.
The restaruant was fine rather than excellent. The menu was limited but the food was well cooked and the service attentive. Others have lamented the popularity of the hotel bar with locals as it was so busy when we visited we immediately gave up try to get a drink. It did not help that there was also a post Xmas corporate party. This is a growing problem with many hotels - residents don't count when it comes to using the bar or getting a table in the restaurant.
If you want a well located hotel with a comfortable bedroom, reasonable value for money and a convenient restaurant - then this is a good choice. If you want character and special treatment as a resident then you might want to look elsewhere. The trouble is there doesn't appear to be much choice in Lincoln.
