We attended a family get together for lunch at White Hart and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was nice to have the area sectioned off and the service and food were first class. Whilst we had a mixture of the 2 and 3 course set meal for adults, the small children were catered for too. We were not hassled and a... More

This hotel describes itself as elegant and sophisticated. Sadly, it is no longer either - and we remember it when it was, albeit 30 years ago. The room was OK. It overlooked the cathedral which would have been nice had we been able to see it through the condensation which pooled on the window cill. The wifi was off more... More

Very disappointed. The room where the ceremony was held was cold, stark and impersonable; the dinner was average with very small portions of vegetables. The room we stayed in overnight was situated next to the boiler room and was noisy with 'singing' pipe-works; too much light came into the room to enable us get to sleep, (no curtains, just blinds)....

The White Hart must surely have the best location in the whole of LIncoln. It is literally feet away from Castle Square and the gate into the cathedral. My husband and I stayed here for the night of 23rd November 2016 and could not fault the hotel. Lincoln, just before Christmas is a wonderful place to be, but my husband... More

Lovely area, amazing location for the hotel and parking just across the road. Room great and we had a couple of cocktails in the bar before heading out which were really nice and the bar staff really good. Breakfast the next day spoilt the overall experience unfortunately and the staff on that time didn't really seem to get customer service... More

I stayed here recently with work and hope I get to come back. My breakfast was delicious. Freshly cooked French Toast with blueberries, warming and tasty. The breakfast crew were great, professional and courteous. My room was spotless and a great size. I did not have the spectacular night time view of the cathedral colleagues had but that meant I...

Just back from a long weekend stay here. Brilliantly positioned, nice room, great bar, very good staff, and fab cocktails. *But* - the breakfast was a bit disappointing. No choice of jam (strawberry only so ended up buying raspberry jam from M&S and taking to breakfast each morning!), pastries and fruit regularly ran out and weren't replenished, eggs were overcooked...
