Reviewed 7 December 2013

Lovely experience, lovely service, lovely staff.
Excellent food.
Rooms are beautiful, very we'll thought out and very comfortable, very quiet at night
Set in the best part of lincoln half way up steep hill with the bail gate, cathedral, castle, traditional pubs & restaurants. City centre the other way, shopping bars etc etc
Highly recommended, can't say enough.
Easily 5*

Reviewed 5 December 2013

It's really rather nice and not what we were expecting.

We had a sound night's stay in this new hotel, The Rest, last weekend and found the room, amenities, staff and coffee bar to be fantastic. It's such a lovely location - found right in the heart of the old district Lincoln. Parking was easy enough in Castle Square and we walked down the beautiful Steep Hill (with quaint little shops) to the hotel. Delicious coffee and cakes and very very friendly staff and service. Can't recommend it enough.
It resides between the old Cathedrale & castle area and the bottom of Steep Hill (where all the shops are) and you can't miss it when coming back up the hill - its perfectly placed when you need, well, a rest!
We'll be coming back.

Room Tip: All the rooms looked great and all soooo new - we stayed in 'Treetops' and had a good night...
