Creston Villa is like staying in the Victorian time zone, furnished in quality period furniture throughout with modern facilities and without doubt the finest breakfast in Lincolnshire with the added bonus of an ongoing comedy act and non stop banter between the very friendly and excellent hosts Anna and Iain Brown and their regular guests.

The gourmet breakfasts have that little extra not shared by many other similar establishments we have stayed in throughout our travels, from locally sourced Sausages, Porridge made with Milk and Cream and real Scrambled Egg made with Cream and Butter, not the watery powdered variety so often served up elsewhere.

When visiting our property in Lincoln in future, we will definately stay at Creston Villa as without doubt it is more than Excellent and should be awarded 6 Stars.

Room Tip: All the rooms are of a similar excellent standard

Possibly the most fun I've ever had at breakfast for a long time. It's a bit like being in an episode of Fawlty Towers but in the nicest and most joyful way. Guaranteed to make even the most curmudgeonly smile and the very best set-up for your day. Creston Villa...recommended in every way.

Once every so often, you come across people who are truly love and are passionate about what they do. When you do, you will realise that you are in the presence of passion personified and you cannot help but be caught up, inspired.

Anna and Iain are one such lovely couple, who love running Creston Villa, and it shows in all the little details--the welcome, the love they put in the rooms, the quality of linen & toiletries, range of teas, homemade cakes & biscuits, welcome cushion, excellent breakfast and they time they take to make you feel at home. I do notice and appreciate the small details!!

This was our first B&B stop of 4 and we'll just say that Anna & Iain spoilt us for every other B&Bs thereafter. We only stayed the 1 night but truly wished we'd stayed more. We cannot recommend Creston Villa highly enough and will tell all and sundry--STAY here! Just think of all the other B&Bs you've stayed at where the hosts were jaded, tired or not so attentive and you will know what I mean when it shows the owners do care!

We might just go back to Lincoln one day just to stay there!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Priory Room.

From start to finish Iain and Anna provided exemplary friendship: the room was a fascinating treasure trove-just up my street. The breakfasts were the best I have experienced anywhere in my extensive travels and nothing was too much bother for my hosts. The range of free snacks was astonishing and the standards of cleanliness could not be bettered. I have no hesitation in recommending Creston Villa to all who prefer good taste and gentility. I shall return in September and know that once again I shall step into a hassle free zone.

Room Tip: Any of them.

We've just spent two nights at this wonderful guest house and can't wait to go back and be totally spoiled!
Lovely very clean and comfortable room with en-suite shower, superb breakfast cooked by Iain and a selection of free snacks and hot and cold beverages available 24/7. Anna and Iain are delightful and welcoming hosts for whom nothing is too much trouble.

We have just returned from an overnight stay at this lovely establishment. We were welcomed by Iain who took our luggage took us to our rooms which were fabulous! They were clean, comfortable and had everything that we needed. He also showed us around the Guest House itself and introduced us to the endless supply of beverages and delicious homemade cakes! We had breakfast on Sunday and wow what a breakfast that was!! and Anna was a wonderful host during breakfast.We had a menu to select what we would like for breakfast, the night before and then had the delight of tasting local sausages, homemade bread/topast and homemade jams and the atmosphere was fantastic. This was also such good value for money! Anna and Iain really made us feel welcome and they were so warm and friendly we felt like we had know then for ages! We will definately return and recommed Creston Villa to our friends and family!

Room Tip: I stayed in the Attic en-suite room overlooking the main road and my parents stayed in the Pine en-s...
