Our room was good, with nice touches like the hot drinks and wifi. However it was unclean, the sofa bed had visible mess on and the floor needed hoovering. We left a note on the comments sheet provided in the room. The hotel doesn't offer room service, however, you can order food at the bar downstairs and they will give...

The hotel is in a good location just outside town...only a 10 minute walk to the waterfront. The rooms aren't big but fit for purpose, spotlessly clean comfortable. We were only there for one night so absolutely fine. Check-in and checkout were easy and simple and the staff were friendly. Breakfast was nice. Good bacon and sausage and considering its...

Good location next to university. Retail park in surrounding blocks including Next, Homebase, Sofaworld etc with Pizza Hut & McDonald's opposite. Easy 10min walk to Bradford Quay with restaurants and Odeon and from there to see the rest of Lincoln. Pretty cobbled streets with some unique shops on way up steep street to Cathedral & Castle - still walkable depending...

There is no storage space e.g. Chest of drawers, wardrobes We were there for 5 nights and had to effectively live out of the suitcase. The free breakfasts were good with food being regularly replenished

Second visit and enjoyable again. Clean and warm with really comfortable beds and pillows.Breakfast was nice with a decent choice,but while the cooked breakfast was nice the choices were extremely poor but it wouldn't put us off staying again.Nice 10-15 minutes stroll to the town centre. car parking only £5 which is excellent value for money.

A little over priced for the location. £10 parking fee per day. Still a good 10 minute walk into town with the busy roads. Ideal for university visits. Clean and tidy rooms but the price would justify a Holiday Inn or Crowne Plaza stay.
