Lincoln House Private Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 June 2013

Another stay at this hotel and can only re-iterate other comments. Rooms clean and well appointed. Staff welcoming, helpful and attentive. Breakfast absolutely superb. Car parking readily accessible.
Although outside the centre of Cardiff ( approximately 15-20 min walk to centre ) this is actually ideal as the walk is through nearby gardens affording easy access to water taxis that can take one down the River Taff to Mermaid Quay/Cardiff Bay.
As to eating out, there are many Cafes, Pubs and Restaurants in the area.Also do take time to explore the nearby streets; the architecture of the houses being quite stunning with many having tiled paths/entrances the likes of which you do not see these days.
Finally, you are only a 30 min walk away, through Llandaff Fields, from Llandaff Cathedral a worthwhile place to visit.

Room Tip: If light sleeper request room at rear.

We stayed for three nights at Lincoln House. Our room was on the top floor and was very cosy. I think some of the other rooms were much bigger but our room was 'bijou' and we really liked it. The room and ensuite bathroom were spotlessly clean as was the rest of the hotel. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The lovely receptionist recommended us to use the local boat service to get to Cardiff Bay, it was such a treat much better than using the car or getting the bus. The breakfast is bountiful you will not go hungry whilst staying at Lincoln House! Also on the receptionist recommendation we ate at the Cricketers gastro pub just a bit further down Cathedral Road, the food was delicious it's not cheap n cheerful however it's not expensive either for the quality of the food and service. We had a great stay in Cardiff and if we ever get a chance to visit again we wold stay at Lincoln House.

Room Tip: Our room was on the back of the building and was very quiet at night even with the window open.

Thank you for your feedback. The room you had was a king-size room, our largest in terms of bed is a super-king (6ft bed). Just in case you book again and wanted a larger room.

Glad you used the water taxi to get to Cardiff Bay, it is a lovely little trip and cheap too.

We do hope to see you again at Lincoln House.

Diolch en fawr.

Very welcoming, small family run hotel. Wonderful breakfast. We have been staying here in the Penthouse Apartment for 6 years and it is as good as ever. Ideal location for Cardiff City Centre. Would highly recommend.

Stayed at this hotel last week and had a very enjoyable stay. It is a Victorian hotel which is charming. We were lucky enough to be allocated a room at the front of the hotel which had a bay window, four poster bed and a newly fitted bathroom. I don't have a lot more to add to the previous reviews. The hotel is clean, excellently situated for the city (a nice stroll through the park past the cricket ground - 20 mins) or in the other direction about a 30 minute walk to the football ground. The staff are very welcoming and the breakfast has pretty much anything you'd want from fruit to cereal to a full 'welsh'. All in all a pleasant stay and I would certainly recommend it.

Room Tip: the hotel is on a fairly busy road so if you are a light sleeper you may wish to ask for a rear room...

Very welcoming hotel breakfast amongst the best I've ever had, nice clean comfortable room, very convenient and walking distance for the city centre, millennium stadium and Swales stadium but in a nice leafy part of Cardiff with several excellent pubs, restaurants and coffee shops very close by. Only downside is front rooms are not double glazed and you can hear traffic.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the rear or side

We booked this over the phone at reasonably short notice because of a family funeral in Cardiff. I spoke to David on the phone and as he was very helpful and they had all the rooms we needed, I decided to look no further and book it.
We had 3 rooms - the family room and 2 doubles. All were spacious and well equipped and quiet as well which was appreciated. There is parking at the rear of the hotel for about 12 cars - we had no trouble getting spaces. There is a big guest lounge and a bar - neither of which we actually used but they looked very comfortable . Breakfast was excellent with a huge choice.
Reasonable price for what we needed. The single occupancy of a double room I thought was a bit pricey - I was told they had single rooms but that they were so small they didn't like to use them.
Overall a good experience and would recommend

Room Tip: ask to stay at the rear of the hotel - the road out front is quite busy with traffic

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.
