We have stayed at the old Palace before and booked for our daughter's wedding. The wedding was perfect, as we intended it to be less formal than most, with the reception as a garden party. The guests were all impressed by the building and the garden. The location is perfect as the wedding was at the Judge's Lodgings by the cathedral and it was a lovely walk there and back from the hotel.
The staff could not have been more pleasant, attentive or hard working. Even if we never did get a do not disturb sign for our room! The team serving the wedding reception met all the timings and were happy and engaging all night. The wedding planning team were also excellent before the event. We paid for a late music licence until 11.30pm and the guests were partying well in the garden until then.
The rooms are not quite perfect, as a result of being in a historic building. The ones in the Lodge (the converted chapel) are more modern and all unusual. There are limited opening windows to some rooms as the windows are the old church windows. The ones in the main building have a less modern feel, but that suits the building. The views in the main building are impressive, either toward the cathedral or long views to the south over Lincoln.
The food is good. I can recommend the restaurant where the food is excellent and the breakfast is good quality and plentiful.
