“Christmas Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2013

First time at the hotel and was very impressed with the very well running of it . The dinner was very good and there was plenty of room between the tables so not sitting on top of very one. There was 5 people in our group and we only had 1 plate of veg for all 5 of us but noticed that the same amount of veg was being served to tables with only 2 or 3 people . I had cheese and biscuits for my dessert it was nice but would have been better if I was asked what cheese I wanted , but these were only minor things. Would book again for a Christmas dinner. The surrounding were very festive and all of the staff were very friendly and happy .

Room Tip: Book in the summer so you don't miss out . Very popular hotel for Christmas dinner

We used the hotel as a base for going to Lincoln Christmas market, drove to Metheringham station and then train to Lincoln.
The staff were very friendly and helpful, the guy on reception couldn't have been more helpful ensuring we had located the car park and had a pleasant day.
Our room was clean and well presented and overlooked the rear patio area. It appears to be an old coaching inn and has some good features.
In the evening we decided to eat in the hotel restaurant, the food was very good, slightly high on price but well presented.
Breakfast was excellent and all the waiting and bar staff were really polite and enthusiastic. All in all a good stay, the only slight problem was a drain type smell overnight which I reported in the morning, the receptionist was most apologetic and said she would get it checked out.
We will return in the spring to have a further tour of Lincoln.

Room Tip: I would personally choose a room at the rear, probably quieter.

I stayed one night at this hotel this week whilst nearby with work. I normally stay in Woodhall Spa but the hotel was full, and I am so pleased it was! I will now always stay at the Admiral Rodney.

I paid the corporate rate and was given a very large and comfortable room. A bit hot, but I turned off the radiators and opened the windows.

I ate in the hotel and, though I would not describe the menu as extensive had a very good steak, done exactly as I asked it to be. I asked for veg and mash instead of the usual accompaniments which was no problem. Veg arrived and I had two bowls with 5 or 6 different perfectly cooked veg. Extremely smiley pleasant service from the waitress.

Bed was comfortable and the water pressure in the shower and bath, in the morning was very good.
Breakfast was nothing fancy, but a pleasant cooked breakfast done for me.
Free fast wifi and plenty of parking.
Would I come again and recommend? Too right I would!
But would I recommend Lincolnshire to go to? What a boring flat County, I hate the place! This hotel is a welcome oasis, as indeed is the town of Horncastle.

We have enjoyed this hotel on a number of occasions over the past two or three years and always enjoyed our stay. This time we were given an excellent room with a spare bed. The room was spacious clean and well equipped. The over bath shower was powerful and there was an abundance of hot water. We had breakfast on each morning and we found the choice wide and the breakfast well cooked. We ate in the restaurant on each night and found the food to be well cooked and attractively presented. All of the staff we met were cheerful, friendly and professional in their approach. Overall, we enjoyed our stay immensely and look forward to visiting again.

This was an Amazon deal which added value to a really good deal of two nights with breakfast and even a bottle of wine if you dined in the restaurant. The rooms are a really decent size with bathroom and spacious bedroom. The bed was to die for and we slept really well apart from one (no) two things. On the first night we had the usual nutcase that can annoy you in the next room i.e. loud from the time they wake at 6am with no thought for anyone else. This was added to by outside workers tapping at the windows nearby and one of them singing at the top of his voice! The second night I was awoken to someone actually on the loo and you could literally hear everything ... I mean everything! The rooms may be big but the walls must be very very thin! Otherwise a great stay and the staff are brilliant, as you come to expect from Best Western.

Room Tip: As reception for the quietest room where you are away from other rooms a little?
