Good value hotel, it’s clean and quiet enough and the staff are as good as they get. The only problem I have is the parking their - it’s now managed by MyParkingSpace. If you use the registration system at reception, you will end up with an account with MyParkingSpace.

Stayed here whilst on business in Lincoln just before Christmas. Staff were friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and clean and the bed was nice and comfy. Ideal location. The complimentary breakfast rolls were also nice.

Stayed here for 4 nights due to work. The staff could not have been more helpful and welcoming. I arrived early but it was not a problem and my room was sorted promptly. The room itself was very functional with a large shower and a desk to work on alongside a sofa to relax. One good thing that sets it aside from other hotels at the moment is the rooms are cleaned every day in a COVID secure way which I appreciated as had takeaways most nights due to restaurants and pubs being closed Breakfast was grab and go but had no issues with this. All the staff from reception through to housekeeping and maintenance went out of their way to make my work visit away very relaxing. If in Lincoln again will definitely stay here again For info there is a Morrisons 5 min walk away and the city centre is around another 10 mins

Just got back after a few nights stay here and we had a great time! Disappointed we could get the top floor as requested, but Lorna did her best to sort this for us! The hotel is quiet, but has a fair bit of noise from outside, we over looked the car park, but there is an industrial estate which bordered the hotel - which isn’t quiet. The windows are double glazed, but don’t seal very well so you do get noise and a draft coming through, but nothing major! The hotel is within 10mins walk from the centre and is so easy to navigate around, yes it’s a busy road but that’s what traffic lights are there for. Plenty of restaurants and bars close by, ad loads of retail parks ideal for some spending! Breakfast is Grab & Go, if I’m honest it doesn’t work - the staff try so hard to make it work, but are really struggling! (I think head office need to rethink its policy) We missed breakfast twice and went across the road to McDonald’s as the queue was too big, and no tables available. It must be hard to manage, but I think there could be a better way of doing it. The staff make this hotel, so friendly and polite all the time which makes a hotel stay nice. Lorna is a superstar, Jack of all trades and she keeps the “young” ones moving - but always there with a happy smile and a friendly chat about your day! Duty Manager Imogen is also another great asset to the team, professional but treats you like a friend as really does go that extra mile! Thanks for a great stay, and next time we’re in the McFlurry’s are on you Lorna & Imogen! 😂😂
