“Fantastic establishment”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

Beautiful decor- excellent staff who are concerned about the customer experience. Wine menu exquisite- wine glasses compliment said fine wine - temperature of wine- spot on. Bravo!! Food exquisite- menu not pages upon pages of choice but all bases covered with a tantalising selection- beautifully cooked and detailed presentation- a chef who know his/hers vision. Portion sizes exactly right- enough to savour the flavours but not too much to feel one has over indulged! The Sunday lunch is also delightful and highly recommended- worthy of regular patrons.

Myself and two friends have adopted the Castle Hotel as a place to meet up regularly and enjoy a great 3 course lunch. Last week was no exception, my hake on a bed of cous cous was wonderful. My friends enjoyed their food as much as I did. The food is served in the immaculate dining room, the staff are very good, and very patient with us as we are often there for hours! Have also called in for a light lunch and coffee, and a drink in the evening. The staff, atmosphere and food make this a great venue.

The service from the minute you arrive is superb! How many hotels show you to your room and carry your luggage. The rooms are not huge but are beautifully appointed with a super bathroom. Don't miss the restaurant the food and service is fab!

Located in the heart of the old city, this hotel is ideally placed to explore Lincoln. The staff were friendly, welcoming and very helpful, the room was very comfortable with views of the Cathedral and the breakfast was one of the best we have had anywhere - freshly cooked with a great choice including a wonderful Eggs Benedict! Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the Cathedral

What a great little boutique hotel! Beautiful surrounding and great location. We stayed with two friends and had the apartment to ourselves. The decor, cleanliness and style of the hotel is spot on. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly! Even the waiters and waitresses in the restaurant took time out to discuss our trip up to Lincoln with us, in there busy Friday night service. The food and wine was exquisite. I'll be back here when I visit Lincoln again, thank you

Stayed for two nights in the Franklin room. Lovely room with triple aspect and view to castle walls. Hotel and restaurant were excellent both in terms of service and quality. All staff very attentive. Breakfast range offered good choice from hot and cold options. Highly recommend a stay here.
