We had an evening meal at Holiday Inn Lincoln tonight and it was really good. The meal was superb and the service first class. Great table overlooking The Brayford Pool. Would definitely recommend a meal here, whether you staying at the hotel or a local looking for a first class meal out.

I wasn't expecting such a great location. Very good check in, very friendly and plenty of information. Swift check in after being made to feel like a regular guest. Didn't dine here so can not comment on the food. Room was clean and warm. Very pleased with my staff

The hotel was chosen for its location which is alongside the water of Brayford marina. The hotel also provides parking at a low fee. The city is all within easy walking distance. The room was surprisingly quiet. It is a pity that the décor showed a little wear and tear. The hand basin had a big crack in it But...

Good location for short break overlooking river and very close to restaurants, bars,Lincoln main shopping centre the Cathedral and Castle. Helpful staff, overall good service, worth booking a river facing room. Good sized rooms comfortable not luxurious. The breakfast was more than adequate with a reasonable menu selection Child friendly, on site parking 24 hour reception.
