A very clean and professional ran hotel, situated across a quiet one-way road from the fantastic Lincoln Cathedral of which the main entrance is a slow beautiful 3 minute walk. The dinning room has wonderful views of the cathedral. The £90 (ish) double room was clean and functional, nothing outstanding but comfy and served its purpose. The local magazines provided...

The best part about this hotel is the amazing staff. They always have the accommodating attitude and a smile. They were all very good with our kids too, even after the third week of staying there. The hotel rooms are nice but there are some slightly better in Lincoln. The location is perfect. You have to see it to understand...

A wedding reception was in full flow when we arrived but it didn't cause us any problems and our stay was a good one. True, some of the rooms are looking a bit tired but...

Shame about poor condition of rooms and lack of basic facilities pen and paper! Breakfast was ok food and drink reasonably priced. Lack of king size bed. On plus side well positioned near Cathedral and bailgate area but if you want a view you pay a premium.
