As regular users of Premier Inns, we have mixed feelings about this one south of Lincoln.
The staff were very friendly and efficient, but it seems the hotel is in need of a bit of an upgrade. Our double room was comfortable, but didn't have any form of double glazing and as such we did get a bit of traffic noise from the road it backed on to (B1131) and also condensation was a problem in the morning, this being a particularly cold night.
Although reasonably clean and comfortable, the room wasn't actually very well valeted - hairs in the bath and a coin on the floor - which suggests it was only lightly cleaned, but ok otherwise.
The slight mould around the bottom of the shower curtain and the yellow stain that was evident under the toilet seat when lifted suggests that the room hasn't had much in the way of a refurbishment recently.
The associated bar was quiet by the time we visited (New Years Day). Most (local) people seemingly having departed after the "2 meals for £10" offer which ended at 18:30.
Selection of drinks were good and the staff were friendly and efficient.
We ordered food but were disappointed to find that both meals were somewhat overcooked on the outside, but only just about cooked on the inside.
Breakfast the following morning was of a different standard, however.
A nice quiet restaurant meant we were served straight away and the full English breakfast was superb.
In summary, the staff here are all very friendly and courteous, but perhaps a bit of money needs to be spent on the hotel, which is in quite a good position.
