Stayed here for two nights and thoroughly recommend. The location is central, the building is charming, bedrooms and bathrooms were immaculately clean and really well-appointed, i.e. secondary double glazing, good lighting, thick curtains to keep the room dark at night. The new managers are brilliant and the breakfast is great.

Couldn't have felt more welcome, great Central location, great breakfast, very clean, would stay again for sure. Good value as well, would pick this place before travel lodge or Inn as the service is much more personal and the landlord and lady are spot on, very friendly and down to earth while still maintaining professional standards

I stopped here for a night whilst having a couple of days driving round and about in Lincolnshire - Quirky, but very clean and well equipped room. Evening beer and morning breakfast were superb. Owners were most helpful.

I have been working in Boston on Business for the last 6 months and have had the pleasure of staying at the Magnet Tavern. I can say it is friendly, clean and a really safe place for a lone female to be staying. I would highly recommend staying at the Magnet Tavern whether your stay is for business or pleasure.

Quality jukebox if you want it also pool and usual pub sports available if you so wish. Surprising waterfront sunspot outback clean and well worth a mispent afternoon out back imbibing...

Lovely room very clean nothing to complain about everything there that I needed 😊 pack lunch available instead of breakfast which is well worth it .Close to town centre for all amenities. Bev and Kev the landlord's are really friendly and go the extra mile to make sure my stay was comfortable. Will definitely recommend this place to my friends...
