“Premier inn lincoln city centre”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

Having stayed in multiple premier inn's across the country this has to be one of the more modern one's. With self service check inn you can be off the street and in your room within seconds. The room it self was of a high standard with a cracking view of the cathedral. Sheets & towels changed daily something rarely undertaken in budget hotels. The hotel restaurant was very popular with the hotel being fully booked. I would recommend booking a table on arrival.

Stayed July 2014, travelled solo

Good location in Lincoln. Booked a quiet room so no disturbance from traffic or other guest. Room very comfortable. Breakfast good. Stand out quality were hotel staff who were all unfailingly polite, friendly and helpful.

We stayed here for two nights in order to explore Lincoln and obtained a very good deal. The hotel is quite new so obviously well decorated. The weather was hot so we were very pleased to have efficient air conditioning in our room. Whilst our room overlooked a fairly busy road, there was little or no noise to be heard due to good insulation, except perhaps the odd siren. The staff were all excellent - very courteous and friendly - not least the ladies on reception. We ate in the restaurant and enjoyed our food. The NCP car park next door was convenient and good value at £4 for 24 hours. The hotel is in an excellent position for exploring Lincoln and is also close to the river area which has been developed and where there are plenty of resturants - useful for anyone who does not want to walk up the hill into the city itself, although this only takes a few minutes. We would stay here again if we returned to Lincoln.

Great location and great for our family. Very clean and well positioned.have stayed here 2 yrs running, staff couldn't do More for you. You could pay double the price for a hotel on the Brayford but it's really not worth it if your staying with children. The hotel is halfway up the city's Main Street making t ideally located. Breakfast was really fresh and topped up or replaced regularly. Staff went the extra mile to make our chidren feel welcome. Really really lovely .

I was under the impression that Premier Inn was a step up from other budget brands, but this one proved me wrong. It was certainly no frills with some annoying features! And certainly over-priced for what it is. We booked this at the last minute; it was the only place with availability in central Lincoln. I thought it would be okay as you know what you are getting with a Premier Inn. It was okay, but more like a Travelodge but without the cheaper price.

Check-in was a horrible experience. They have adopted self-check-in computers which certainly make things slow when more than one person is ahead of you in the queue. The staff member on hand was pleasant enough, but the whole process is most unsatisfactory. Bring your reading glasses - even if you don't usually need them! God help anyone with a visual impairment - the paperwork that's printed has such small type that it's a miracle anyone has any idea what they are looking at. And it's a very unfriendly start to the stay.

The room was basic but clean. We had booked a twin, which was a double with a fold up bed stuffed against the window. Fine, but really basic. There was no soap in the bathroom despite there being dispensers. They were empty.Towels were stored outside the bathroom which we realised prior to it becoming an issue! The bathroom was a good size.

We didn't bother ordering any food as looking at the menu it seemed very overpriced. There are plenty of far better (and cheaper) options nearby.

Having said this, the location is great for discovering the city, and a short walk from the railway station. It was quiet and felt safe. We were there for just one night, so it wasn't the end of the world. But Premier Inn has gone down in my estimation after this experience. It was never top of my wish list, but it's at the bottom now!

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.
