The hotel was fine, I have stayed there on 2 previous occasions, and may stay again. I found the service a little lacking compared to my other trips. A system should be put in place to charge a person breakfast only of he actually had breakfast. There is a person with a ledger who asks for your name and room...

Just spent a night here, we found no fault with anything. The check in was efficient, the room was completely spotless, lovely modern bathroom with a great shower, the bed was super comfortable and the amenities were all there. The hotel is in a great location, right on the Brayford Wharf with bars, restaurants and shops close to hand. We...

Very central hotel, Decor overall a little tired and in need of a spruce up if the current pricing is to be maintained. A 6:15 fire alarm was very unwelcome but completely the fault of whichever room it was that decided to smoke in his shower ! Staff at breakfast were very friendly and helpful but again the decor was...

We were visiting Lincoln for the cycle race and usually stay in a hotel close to the cathedral. This time we decided to stay in this hotel for three nights. We chose to pay extra for a room with a view and better facilities. We booked direct and joined the rewards scheme to get a better rate. First things first....

We stayed for 1 night Monday 15/5 great room staff friendly. Mix up over breakfast times we were misinformed however it was rectified to our satisfaction! Shower wasn't that hot at 6.30pm probably due to lots of people using it at that time but our morning shower was hot. We enjoyed our stay.

My wife and I stayed at Holiday Inn (Brayford north Lincoln) for a night in room 11 which is a ground floor accessible room at the front of the hotel, looking out towards the marina. The room was clean and well maintained with 2 double beds and a reasonable sized wet room. Check in was very straight forward and the...

I have been lucky enough to spend the last few days in Lincoln, it is a lovely town with lots of pubs and restaurants in the area, there is also the castle and the cathedral at the top of Steep Hill...you have been warned the hill is very steep but you can always stop off at The Magna Carta or...

Stayed for just one night in a room on the second floor. Our room was large with two really comfy double beds, the bathroom was also quite spacious with plenty of fluffy towels. There was ample storage space and our room also had tea/coffee making facilities. Our room overlooked the Marina which was really lovely. All the staff at the...

Stayed for a couple of nights, in a room on second floor with a couple of double beds. It was a good size and the shower was excellent. It was expensive though as a bank holiday and I felt it lacked small touches it could have done with for the price. No toiletries apart from those large tubes attached to...
