We stayed two nights in the Garden Room. Lovely room which was beautifully clean and had a very good bathroom with bath and powerful overhead shower. We, like a previous poster, had problems with the sophisticated heating controls (problem solved for us by opening the window) and there was still no WiFi in the room (so on site it was only possible for us to use Wifi in the day time when using the cafe).
We found the cafe somewhat disappointing. For a fairly expensive B & B (£139 on Saturday night) we felt that improvements could be made - the cooked breakfast was fine but other components were less good: very basic OJ, only one cereal (Cornflakes), yoghurt was a pot of flavoured Muller. One day this was served to order ... so this took ages with one willing but inexperienced waitress though on the next day a small buffet was set out - much more efficient.

Room Tip: All rooms seemed good but those needing WiFi might find none in the Garden Room

We stayed 1 night in a rooftop room, which we loved. The decor is lovely, rooms are clean, fresh & high quality, the location couldn't be better (near pubs, bars & shops), & everyone was welcoming, helpful & friendly.

Our room had WiFi, fluffy towels, a fridge, iron & ironing board, safe & decent hairdryer - couldn't ask for more. The only thing we thought was a net/voile at the window for privacy would be appreciated, then you wouldn't always have to have the blind down when in your room.

Lying in bed with the roof window open & listening to the Cathedral's bells ringing on Sunday morning was lovely.

The full English breakfast was tasty, as was lunch.

All in all we had a lovely stay. Would definitely come back & recommend to others.

A delightfully restful stay
Rooms are furnished in a welcoming contemporary style, with soft fluffy towels in the bathrooms and sumptuous mattress toppers for a cosy night's sleep
Very well situated for bars and restaurants in The Bailgate area
Only downside was a very lengthy wait for breakfast

Basically a nice place to stay but the underfloor heating in the room is set at a sweltering 25 degrees and following the instructions to alter it does not work. There is no wifi in the Garden Room and calls to the front desk during office hours and to the out of hours mobile number have gone unanswered.

Dear Jon,

Thank you for you booking with us, we appreciate your generally positive comments but sorry you experienced some problems with the under floor heating and wifi.

All our rooms under floor heating are individually controllable for personal comfort, which in this instance hasn't been successful. We have simplified the instructions to alter the heating in each room and re-set the free wi-fi. We hope our discount goes some way to making amends and look forward to seeing you again next time you are in Lincoln.

Best regards, Richard

My parter and I recently stayed in the Garden Room and I can't recommend it highly enough. The furnishings were beautiful with great attention to detail. The location is perfect if you want to take in the best wine bars and restaurants Lincoln has to offer and the welcome you get from the team is exactly what you would expect from a 5* Hotel. We'll definately be staying again.
