“Excellent Staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

The hotel has plenty of character, in a good state of repair, clean, the staff were absolutely excellent, the parking was sufficient during our stay and the breakfast was particularly good.

I could not fault the hotel in anyway and I would not hesitate to book again.

Wanted to stay on Cathedral Road and so this came up on Trip Advisor and proved to be a very good choice. Had a large room on the ground floor which suited all our needs. Breakfasts were very good- absolutely masses of choice and had the opportunity of trying the Laverbread, which I really enjoyed. Found all the staff to be extremely friendly helpful and efficient. Located in an excellent part of town and was able to take the water taxi from closeby over to the docks. The castle just a 15 minute walk away also. Car parking to the rear.

We enjoyed our two day stay at this slightly quirky bed & breakfast hotel which combines old-fashioned and modern elements. The building dates from 1900 and retains many original features. Our bedroom and bathroom were spotlessly clean, our only complaint being that the bed was too narrow and springy for our liking. The breakfasts are exceptionally good and served by efficient friendly staff. The 20-minute walk through the Park alongside the Taff into the centre of Cardiff was wonderful. There are several restaurants within easy walking distance. We went both nights to Zanzibar where the early bird meal (served before 7.30pm) on certain weekdays was delicious and exceptional value. If we return to Cardiff we would stay at Lincoln House Hotel again.

Overall a brilliant and comfy stay, not to far from the town & situated near the park. I was pleased with the price & the warm welcome from the hotel managers and colleagues < also very polite. Needed an extra fan because of really hot weather & was able to get one straight away, also liked the fact the bedrooms had free-view. However one slight downside is the lovely modern bathroom doesn't go with the oldish Victorian decor. Other than that i seriously couldn't fault my stay and would be happy to go back again also loved the fact breakfast was included in the price as not many places include breakfast (VERY GOOD FOR THE PRICE). :D Thank you very much to this hotel for such a lovel and comfy stay! much appreciate < and look forward to seeing you again. :) ps; was very suitable for me a my partner on a night out, we stayed in a twin room and just pushed the beds together was BRILLIANT.

I just have to tell you about this excellent hotel in Cardiff .We've stayed there several times and each time we have been so impressed . The staff are lovely, the breakfasts are absolutely delicious and the rooms are clean and very comfortable. I have stayed in hundreds of hotels either through my work or for pleasure and this is one of the very best.

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely

My family and I stayed one night at the Lincoln in a family room on the ground floor and a double room on the first floor. The hotel is centrally located with an easy walk to the Castle and city centre attractions, and a short drive from Mermaid Key. The hotel is well maintained with careful attention to the preservation of period features. The bathrooms were modern, but the one in the family room needed some attention. Strange though, there were no washcloths in either of the bathrooms. Both rooms were very hot during the night and this made our rest a bit uncomfortable. Even though the window in one room could be opened, the street noise cancelled out the cooling effect. It was good to have off-street parking. The breakfast was satisfying.. Overall, its the location that makes this place a top player for accommodation in Cardiff .

Room Tip: Ensure that you get a room that has windows that can be left open.

Lovely small hotel, family owned . We stayed two nights in June with our son and daughter in-law. Friendly, helpful staff. Private parking. Excellent Welsh breakfast. Walking distance to local pubs and restaurants. Rooms were large and tastefully furnished. If your staying in Cardiff, do yourself a favor and stay here.

Room Tip: If you have trouble with stairs ask for a lower floor room. Hotel has 3 floors no lift.
