The Old Palace is a beautiful hotel in the centre of the historic part of Lincoln, a stones throw from the Cathedral. I stayed in a twin room in the lodge, which is out the back of the hotel in a converted little church. The room (a twin) was described as cosy and I feared it would be small, but it was a lovely, a very well decorated room which we were very happy with. The breakfast was plentiful though sometimes a little chaotic. The orders weren't always right and they weren't particularly busy.
The two things which needed attention were the signs (there are no signs to say that it is a hotel) very difficult if you're not local. Luckily I was born nearby and knew where the hotel was.
Although in the main the staff were very friendly and helpful the male receptionist was dreadful, it was almost an effort for him to speak to us and didn't give us the time of day. We had to extract information from him. He was the same on all of the days we were there, quite off putting. Everyone else was great.
