Reviewed 13 April 2014

Stayed for three nights to go to the RHS Garden Show. Hotel reception very welcoming and efficient. They offered to help carry our bags upstairs to our room which was very considerate. The double room at the rear of the hotel was clean, spacious with all the usual facilities. The bathroom had obviously recently been refurbished and was of a very high standard. The breakfast had an excellent cold table and hot food was waiter served and included some vegetarian options - really enjoyed having a veggie sausage with my breakfast. The lounge and bar looked very comfortable though we didn't personally use them. Onsite parking for a dozen cars. No lift so book a ground floor room if stairs are a problem. The entrance to Bute Park is just round the corner and is handy for all Cardiff's sports stadiums. Plenty of eating places within walking distance but no evening meal at hotel.

Top tips. Use the riverboat to shuttle between the castle and the harbour area. Do visit the City Hall - all set out for a wedding when we were there. Very impressive rooms. Do go to the Impressionists Gallery at The Cardiff Museum - superb. Do visit the Welsh Parliament Building down by the harbour - be prepared for airport type security. The cafe there has a good menu, very reasonably priced with a great view. Don't expect to use your bus pass here as it's not valid.

Many thanks for your very detailed review.

Very pleased you had a good 3 night stay at our 3 star family run hotel. Yes all of our bathrooms have recently been refurbished and are all different in style. We do not have a lift due to our property being 114 years old.


We look forward to welcoming you again the future!

Have just spent this past weekend at the Lincoln House Hotel in Cardiff. Absolutely loved the Inn and its location on Cathedral Road. Beautiful Area. A bit of a walk into the city center but in good weather it's lovely. You can go along Cathedral Road or through the park which makes the walk very nice. We had to do a room change because the drain in our bathtub would not drain water properly. The only disappointment was that the room we were moved to did not have the same nice modern bathroom that our original room had. The breakfast here is fantastic. Free wifi and free parking which is great. Would definitely stay here again.

Lovely clean, well kept B&B. 20 min walk through park or road gets you to Cardiff city centre, Millenium stadium or castle. You can also get boat from park to Cardiff Bay. Room was comfortable with nice ensuite. Lovely breakfast served by friendly staff and private car parking too. Couldn't fault it!

We stayed here for a night this weekend and the hotel is lovely! Walking distance to the Town Centre and right on the river Taff so lovely walks to. The hotel staff are very attentive and could not do enough for us. Although I did not have breakfast my husband said it was lovely with lots to choose from. We wouldn't think twice about booking again.

We could not fault our stay here and immediately booked to return. It is a delight to be able to walk through parkland into the city centre. The immediate vicinity is convenient for both the centre and Cardiff Bay. The hotel is stylish and comfortable, with a welcoming ambiance. Breakfasts are excellent. Although our room was a standard double, it had everything required for our comfort and was also very quiet.

An ideal place to stay when visiting Cardiff. Perfect location within walking distance of the city centre , yet in a quiet and relaxing position. This family run hotel is spotlessly clean and serves an excellent breakfast.

We have been to LincoIn house several times and have never been dissapointed.
I love the 4 poster bedroom (room1) and we try to book this room whenever we stay. Its well presented and very spacious which is great when getting ready to go out in the evening or relaxing in the afternoon.

The breakfast selection in the morning is very well thought out and presented by the staff in a
quick, helpful and friendly way.....breakfast is "..not a problem"
