The staff were helpful and welcoming, the room clean, comfortable and as described, the car park was full but the staff gave clear directions to a nearby multi storey which was fine. The electric restaurant was fantastic. A lovely stay and happy to recommend to others.

We booked a king double room for £99 on Sat 26th April .After reading reviews we went straight to The Lucy Towers NCP car park which is just round the corner from the hotel and was £7.50 for 24 hrs which turned out to be a good move as the hotel car park was full. We were checked in quickly and given a lovely warm chocolate cookie each which was a nice touch. We were on the 3rd floor. The room was very good. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was great. We went up to the hotel bar which was pleasantly busy late in to the evening with fantastic cocktails and a great atmosphere .All in all, a great hotel in a great location. Really enjoyed our stay.

If you want a base to explore Lincoln, or for any reason to be in Lincoln overnight, stay at the Double Tree. We cannot fault the place at all, the cookies handed out at check in are amazing! Don't expect a parking space, if there's a space, it's yours, if not, the multi strorey car park is a very short walk away. Staff are brilliant, everything is clean and modern, if you want a view, book a suite, but, we didn't sit in the hotel looking out the window! Perfect location for an evening on Brayford. 5 star quality, for Travelodge prices. The Electric bar was really buzzing, a cocktail is a must. Amazing.

Room Tip: We stayed near the gym, didn't hear any outside noise whatsoever, and the hotel was full at the...

Chose this hotel for its location. Plenty of choice of pubs and restaurants on waterfront right next to hotel and town centre is also very close. Service and room good standard 4 star. However if you like a view most of the rooms dont have one whereas the Holiday Inn next door half of the rooms appear to face the water. All in all a nice experience.

The cookie upon arrival is the only good thing about this hotel . Cobwebs in room and loud music on past 11.30 pm . Phoned reception to get a very unhelpful lady saying "I will ask them to turn the bass down ". I will never again stay in a hilton hotel .

I went awhile back now for some cocktails, when i got out of the lift there was a red haired bartender who looked more like a manager than a bartender but im unsure of her name but she was very nice the hole time i was there and helped me choose my drinks which i was very greatful of she had so much knowledge of cocktails more than anyone i have ever seen.
The bar was very clean and tidy and the seats around the bar where very nice too.
But overall the red haired lady made my night and ensured it was a great night to remember.

No parking due to a limited number of spaces, be aware if you are in a hurry. Staff were unhelpful and very unapologetic for the lack of spaces. Room had a window but was facing a wall therefore very dark almost like a dungeon. Had various problems with the in room heating and could hear noise from the room next door. Area around the hotel also very noisy.

Thank you for your review, Please accept my sincerest apologies for any inconvenience you experienced during your recent visit to our hotel, I am very disappointed to hear our rooms did not meet your requirements and you were disturbed during your stay, we are currently working on a solution to increase the number of on-site parking spaces which hopefully will be in place by the end of the year, however there is ample public parking a very short distance from the hotel. I would like the opportunity to welcome you back in the future, please do not hesitate to contact me directly and I will ensure you have a more favourable stay.
