Premier Inn Lincoln City Centre Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 July 2014

You know what you are getting with Premier Inn.
They provide a simple service that should not go wrong.
So the room was ok and everything was clean.
They give you 30mins wifi free- this would be great, but you can't get on it.
This would not encourage anyone to actually pay for more time.
I did eventually get on it- after numerous attempts, but then it was so slow- it was not worth using.
I pre-paid breakfast, paid for the max, good value at £8-75, or so I thought.
Goes for breakfast at 7am only to be told the hot stuff was not on because "they were not busy enough"- and this is my fault?
If i pay for a full breakfast, with bacon, sausage, egg etc etc I do not expect to just be offered cornflakes, fruit and bread. Anyway it came on shortly after- just as well I wasn't in a hurry.
At the said breakfast- I left my table to get some jam, and found it totally cleared on my return!
A little too efficient for my liking.
You have to worry when a historic city such as Lincoln cannot do better for hotels than this.

We stayed here for a single night and the whole experience really impressed us. The location is excellent close to the waterfront and city centre. The busy road ( Broadgate ) was surprisingly unobtrusive even though our room was overlooking it and it was easy to cross. Cart parking was adjacent in a multi-storey at a reasonable over night rate.(even cheaper on Saturdays).
The staff were all very friendly and welcoming & reception was spacious & spotless.
The room was great - unfussy and once again, spotless. Air-conditioning was very welcome on a hot day.
I would definitely recommend this to any one staying in Lincoln, which is a lovely city.

Room Tip: Even on the rooms overlooking Broadgate, traffic noise was minimal.

This is a great premier inn. It's less than 5 minutes walk to the theatre and centre of town. There is a multi storey car park next door (for 24 hours £2.50 at weekends and £4 mid week). There is a bar and restaurant which looked really nice and the hotel is very clean and new feeling. Certain rooms have views of the cathedral, 335 being one of these. Would definitely stay again.

This premier inn is just over one year old and is in the best location for visiting Lincoln city. The hotel is spotless and the food and staff in the restaurant were very good. A special mention for the young lady on reception who was friendly, chatty and helpful.

I stayed here for one night on the 10th July with my husband. We had a very nice room with a view of the cathedral. The room was spotless and all the staff were very friendly and helpful and gave us a map of Lincoln and advice of what transport was available i.e. tour buses. We had the meal deal which at £23 was good value. This consisted of a two course meal with drink and a breakfast. Both meals were excellent. We would certainly stay in a Premier Inn again.

Room Tip: We had a corner room on the 3rd floor and had a wonderful view of the Cathedral.

Great location within easy walk of city centre. Very modern, clean hotel. Rooms are great, some even have great views of the cathedral. Breakfast is good. A choice of car parks right next door for £4 or less per 24 hours. We will return next time we visit Lincoln.
