Highlight following: 1 Central location within walking of High Street and station. 2 Car park of hotel is £5 per day and general car parking is difficult in Lincoln. 3 Staff are welcoming and helpful. 4 Rooms are clean and well maintained. 5 Views from hotel of the Minster and castle superb. 6 Breakfasts were...

Great stay again. Lovely staff, welcoming. Room and facilities all great for a business trip stay. Ate in the hotel and had beef ghoulish for dinner. Didn't have high hopes, but was amazing! Melt in the mouth. Could have eaten twice as much! Great lounge area. Great location.
