“Very well equipped, very comfortable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

We stayed a night in Room 1, overlooking the road but perfectly quiet. The en-suite was immaculate and efficient and the room itself a good size with a huge and very comfortable bed. The room was very well equipped, even including items I wouldn't expect: a sewing set, cotton buds etc. It was as if the hosts had tried to supply any imaginable requirement. Could I find anything to complain about? The switch was stiff on the two bedside lights! In the morning the breakfast was comprehensive with many cooked options and all a hungry person could possibly eat. And tasty too!

Any downside? We were tourists rather than most of the guests who were working people so maybe the 8.45 last serving for breakfast was rather early for us. Guests need also to be aware of the actual distance into Lincoln itself if that is their target destination. However, we were heading south the next day and so the location was really convenient.

I Stayed at this guest house for two nights while working in the area an was really impressed. I normally stay at hotels with bar and restaraunt but was just as happy staying here as it was really clean and homely, and the owners are very friendly and helpfull. Also with it being a guest house rather than a large hotel I didnt have to put up with loads of people coming and going and doors banging in the night. The Gables is very clean and nicely decorated and the breakfast is spot on! There are at least four food pubs within walking distance and the owner will point out the best ones.I would definitely stay here again. Just cant believe someone would complain about paying more through Laterooms, when its obvious you pay more for the convenience of not having to search and phone about!! Book through their own website for a cheaper rate.

This 4* Guest house was a bit further out of Lincoln that we thought, and although a bus ran past the accommodation, it was very infrequent, so it was about a mile to walk to the next route. Saying that, we parked in the city early on the Saturday and had no problem parking.
Lincoln was absolutely heaving so having done the Christmas market, won't be going back for this. Although we will go back during the Spring or Summer as the Catherdral was one of the best we've been in.
The guest house was spotlessly clean and very modern. There were 3 couples in our party and we had the smallest room, however the other two rooms were huge! Ask for room 3 or 6 if possible! Breakfast was superb with lots of choice and tasted wonderful. As mentioned previously be another review, a nice touch to have a fridge on the landing with fresh milk.

Good attention to detail. Immaculately maintained and spotlessly clean, bedrooms contained everything one might need.
Lots of choice in the cooked breakfasts, and all included in the price.
