We stayed overnight while visiting Lincoln. The hotel is right in the heart of the main attractions of Lincoln on top of the hill near the Castle and Cathedral. There are also a lot of nearby restaurants if (like us) you eat out in the evening. The room was comfortable and well furnished. The breakfast was good , but could...

We had a standard room which was modern, clean, quiet and comfortable, with all the amenities you'd expect from a good hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfasts were really good, we loved the eggs benedict. Booked via booking.com which was cheaper than going direct.

Lincoln lends itself perfectly to the festive season. The Castle Hotel adds to this. We had a really good couple of nights. All the staff were welcoming and very professional. The room was very good: cosy and comfortable. We had dinner in the restaurant both nights. Excellent food and first class service. This was particularly notable because we were there...

We were here for two nights in November 2016. We were in the top floor of the main building, and had an AMAZING view of the lit-up cathedral at night. The room is small but well-appointed. The shower was great. The bed was smaller than I would prefer for 2 people, and the mattress a little worn out... but did...

Booked a suite at the Castle Hotel and the room was well appointed and spacious. The bathroom in particular was lovely. Parking is limited at the front of the hotel but there is a car park next door at the cost of £7.50 a day. The receptionist was very welcoming and advised us of the best places to go on...
