Very friendly staff, rooms starting to look dated, although clean so adds to the feel of a retro style architecture. Breakfast was busy as a wedding party was present, plenty of staff and they still managed that individual service. Would stay again soon.

It was mainly self service but there were several options which you could order. It's in a super position opposite the cathedral...

Excellent location for the Cathedral and uphill Lincoln. It is nice just to be able to park the car and then walk to all the pubs and restaurants. First class rooms, service and friendliness. Ideal location for a wedding or parties.
