We were concerned after reading all the other negative Trip Advisor comments about this place. We traveled from the USA to visit family in Lincoln. After I called "Andrew" with our concerns about the comments re: squeeky uncomfortable beds and dirty floors he assured us if we did not like it we could check out and he would refund us all our money. We did not like it - we spent one night and could not sleep on the poor mattress with the bed sqeeking each time we turned over; the stone floors and carpet up the stairs are grimy dirty, and the bathroom is tiny. To make matters worse I got locked inside the unit when the key would not work from the inside and I had to climb out of the window to get out. When Andrew arrived he had the same problem getting key to work from the inside of the unit and told me the previous guests must have made a new key. I am writing to the health and safety people in Lincoln about that. Very scary. Andrew then charged us 2 nights for our one night 18 hour stay as we checked out 85 minutes late waiting for the pouring rain to stop before we loaded our suitcases, AND increased our room rate for both nights too - we are fighting that with our Visa company. Our gut told us not to stay at Tennyson court, but Andrews reassurances caused us to change our mind, that was our mistake. Don't make the same one we did. We ended up moving and staying at the new Holiday Inn for £13 a night less and got free hot breakfast and parking every day included. Ignore any assurances you get from Andrew, its just not worth the risk.
