“Great Hotel”
Reviewed 15 June 2013

Great Hotel in a fantastic location. Start off with a wonderful breakfast that offers a full range of delectables. Then head out the door to a side street leading to a gate that opens to a park entrance. A nice stroll through the park leads to a door adjacent to Cardiff castle. After visiting the sites, head back to a room that is comfortable and pleasing. Lovely stay and charming host. Prior reviews and pictures do not lie. Highly recommended. Will definitely stay again.

This is a private family owned hotel, largely bed and breakfast. The hotel is very conveniently located at the back of Bute Park (and a stones throw from Glamorgan Cricket Club). It is on the main Cathedral Road which means it is in easy access of the city centre (a ten minute walk in fact).

The hotel is very clean, welcoming and the rooms are very comfortable. I rarely stay at B&Bs, but will not hesitate to stay here again!!!

This hotel is located on a street that is lined with lovely old houses. The downstairs lounge and breakfast room are lovely and the bedroom was quite spacious. We had a room at the back which was nice and quiet. Staff were friendly and very helpful.
There is an entrance to some beautiful gardens a few metres down the side street with paths leading to town.
There's no lift so request a lower room if stairs are an issue. There are three floors I think.
Breakfast offered a large range of foods, hot and cold, including some Welsh delicacies.
I definitely recommend this if you're after a Welsh experience rather than a chain hotel.

What a lovely place to stay. Friendly and welcoming from the moment we walked through the door. Nothing was too much trouble. All staff very friendly. Room quite old fashioned but kept in line with the character of the house. Also spotless and fresh towels and room cleaned every day. Booked when speedway was in Cardiff so very busy but breakfast was excellent and piping hot also did not have too wait very long. Would definitely stay again and recommend to anyone wishing to stay in Cardiff.

Room Tip: Stayed in a room at the back no noise except other guests in the room above walking around at 6in th...

On arrival, it was noticed that only one room was booked. we were a paryt of two couples. As two rooms were originally booked we were quite worried that there would be a problem, but no, luckily another room was available and all was handled with politeness and efficiency.
Wonderful breakfast with everything you could think of, including welsh laver bread. The amount of different fresh fruit was amazing.
There was nothing we could fault them on, but saying tha,t you have to be reasonably fit as there is no lif, and walking up 34 stairs to the 3rd floor, where we were, became quite demanding at times.
Would recommend this hotel to anyone, and the convenience to the park and the river and town centre shops is great. It is a lovely walk.

Room Tip: All rooms are good, but the front is quite noisy with the traffic.

Apologies for the confusion of your booking on your arrival. I am pleased this was dealt with in an efficient manner.

In regards to your room being on the third floor, when you book next time, please let us know you require a ground or first floor room at the back of the hotel and we shall do our best to allocate you one of these rooms.

Hope to see you again at Lincoln House.

What a grand place to stay! We loved the decor, the parlor, our room, the breakfast buffet, the staff and the location (easy walking distance to Cardiff Castle, Sophia Gardens, Bute Park, the Civic Center, the river, shops and restaurants). A walk to the bay takes about forty minutes. Bus stops are just down the street, a street lined with other beautiful Victorian buildings. An excellent choice while visiting Cardiff.

A charming hotel in the hip Pontcana district of Cardiff - with cafes, gift shops and chic restaurants just a short walk away. The traditionally dressed room was clean, spacious and well appointed and the staff were warm and welcoming. The choice of breakfast options were fantastic & included a true full welsh with the option of laverbread (which you must try if you've not had it before).
