Great hotel in a great location, the room was lovely and clean, and the staff were very friendly. The bar is really lively with a lovely conservatory and outside seating area. The car park opposite is really handy and not at all expensive as the hotel pays half the fee. We had breakfast in bed and and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We will be going back again.

Lovely position - facing medieval castle walls; very obliging staff. Pleasant comfy room. Good meals.

Only issue was = v hot when I stayed! Hopefully they have the central heating now under control....

Room Tip: Upstairs facing the castle walls

Getting a child free night with no plans we decided to stop in Lincoln for a night. No booking, no internet, so many phone calls to overpriced double room rate hotels. We drove passed the Tower thinking it would be also booked or over priced. We were told their was one room left, the superior double, which the kind lady let us have at a reduced rate as it was getting late in the day. we were very impressed with the decor of the bar and reception area..but then our room...WONDERFUL ! we would have paid the room rate knowing what we know now. The team were young but very pleasant, the atmosphere friendly and relaxed. An excellent place to simply walk down into Lincoln. A view from the room of the Catherdral. Parking across the road. Good clean room, nice breakfast, good service. Have told everybody about it on our return, will recommend to anyone. Hopefully we might go back even with the children....Thankyou....

Decorated very stylishly throughout, boutique style.
Stayed here in a Family Room on second floor with my children, room was large and very clean, beds comfortable and bathroom lovely.
The staff were very, very helpful and pleasant, nothing seemed like too much trouble.
Breakfast was good with a great selection, cooked freshly and plenty of staff around if you needed anything else.
The bar is very busy but has no music playing so it is just the chattering of voices that can be heard, no thumping bass thank goodness!!
The bar closed at midnight and by 12.30 it was totally silent - thank goodness!
Definetely recommend staying here, but if you want peace and quiet then please look elsewhere.

We stayed here in a superior room on a saturday night. Room was fine, clean and well furnished but a bit tired. Could do with a makeover. Bathroom light didn't work and tv sound came and went. Strangely, there was no wardrobe or even hooks to hang clothes....
Quite noisy as there is a very popular bar at the hotel. But they do warn you about this at weekends! Don't stay here if you want an early night!.
Restaurant was excellent. An imaginative menu with good food, but not cheap.
Price was the going rate for a hotel in the city centre, and the staff were friendly and helpful

Room Tip: top floor rooms will be the quietest, due to the busy bar.
