“A real gem!”
Reviewed 25 June 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lincoln House Hotel. We booked two rooms for 4 nights during a week-long UK vacation. Both rooms (Triple Room & Small Double Room) were perfectly sufficient for our needs in terms of size and amenities. The bathrooms are quite small, but if you are like us and only use hotel bathrooms to freshen up in between tours and excursions, don’t be turned off by the small size. The bathrooms are very clean, as are the bedrooms and common areas. The breakfast is also lovely, and very reasonably priced. For that matter, the Hotel is great value overall - you don’t have to search far to find more expensive options in London! The Hotel is a quick walk to Marble Arch, which is your connection point to all the wonderful attractions that London has to offer. We would certainly stay at Lincoln House Hotel again.

I stayed at the Lincoln House Hotel 3rd to 7th June 2013 and will defiantly go again. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the whole hotel was immaculately clean. I booked a 'small single room' as I am both small and single! The room exceeded my expectations the bed was wonderfully comfortable and the shower room was a work of compact genius so I would advise large people against this option! The room had plenty of mirrors,and hanging space something many hotels fail to provide I also had a fridge in my room and there was a water cooler on the landing. The breakfast room was cosy and the continental breakfast was as good or better than most places I have stayed in. The location was great for tube and bus travel and great for all the shopping and tourist stuff that I wanted to do. Very importunately as a lone female traveller I felt very safe there. If you want clean, comfortable , good value and a great location this is for you. If you want cool hip and trendy or you cant cope with stairs look else where.

We stayed here following a short break in Prague to accomodate taking in a couple of London shows. It is not too far from Marble Arch underground station so getting about is not bad. When we arrived it seemed slightly strange that you have to go downstairs to the reception desk. We were early and our room was not quite ready so we were kindly allowed to leave our luggage and were told it would be in our room for us when we returned later.
As promised our luggage was in our room, which was a relief as we were as we right at the top of the hotel,think it was room 45. The room was small and the shower room was minute,clean but just too small. We opted to have breakfast in the hotel which was an extra £6.50 each and it was totally acceptable and a pleasant atmosphere both mornings we used the facility. On leaving the hotel we were allowed to leave our luggage in our room and they kindly brought it down for us ready to collect later in the day. For £145 a night this was not a cheap hotel,the staff were very friendly.

Room Tip: Try for a room near reception on the first floor.

I stayed here 3 years ago, and while it was small it was acceptable.
Now I definitely didn't enjoy it. Ok London is expensive but, these rooms are really small and the bathrooms are almost too small. When I entered my room for the first time, there was an overwhelming smell of cigarettes despite being nonsmoking, so I had to have the window open all the time which eventually improved it.
The breakfast which used to be basic and fresh is now self serve with very cheap food.
The walls seem paper thin and I could hear my next door Neighbour start his laptop and have a phone conversation. My room was off a cluster of 5 rooms, and on the last night, a bunch of young people were going in and out their rooms talking loudly and calling out and generally being a pain in the butt between 1am and 2am so I didn't sleep well.

The location is fine but I found a lack of cares for a simple meal as it is too nears
Oxford St. Later I found some places in the back streets which seemed to be an option. In hindsight, I think a place at the far end of Oxford St near Soho would have been a better priced option with lots of cares to choose from.

The staff were friendly and helpful though.

Thank you for placing a review on out hotel. May I say that at the end of the day it’s all to do with getting our expectations right. If a guest expects higher stars facilities and services in a West End London hotel but is paying a budget price, then naturally the guest might get disappointed.

Our newly introduced Buffet Breakfast includes all the items we offered before in English & Continental Breakfast with the exception of fried eggs. This we have replaced by scrambled eggs, plain omelette and Spanish omelette. In addition we have doubled the selections for our vegetarian guests and added to the range with continental cheese, other dairy products and variety of breads. We have also widened the range of cakes, buns, scones and French pancakes. In total over 45 items to choose from, what is missing is caviar, smoked salmon and king prawns but for the price we are charging it is a bargain that we are gladly willing to subsidise. The great majority of our guests are very appreciative of our new breakfast selection and find the price unbeatable.

I think somehow you didn’t pay enough attention to the full range we are offering and hastily took this kind of impression.

Your other concerns have been adequately explained in the previous management responses that were made.

Yours sincerely,
Joseph Sheriff

Stayed here on business. The room consisted of a single bed, desk and en suite wet room. Wi-Fi was free and worked perfectly. On the whole great location and hotel super cheap for location in central London. Would come back here again.

Whenever I'm in London, I usually stay at a B&B on Gloucester Place for the price, convenience to the Tubes, and location (somewhat removed from tourist areas). A basic B&B, and the rates were good for late April. Staff was very accommodating, as my room wasn't quite ready on check-in. Breakfast isn't included, but for a small fee, the food is decent to fill you up.

My only gripe was room 25. Yes, a very good price. But, with very heavy luggage, it is a haul up 3 flights! Just an FYI - this was also probably the smallest room ever! But, again, good wifi, tv, fridge. Can't complain too much.

Room Tip: Pack light, and be a small size to fit into room 25!

Admirably quiet for a hotel on an arterial, near bus and underground, this place suited us for a Five-day stay. The staff is courteous and helpful and the breakfast quite generous. The only thing we missed was a shelf or drawer for personal belongings.
