“Understated place!”
Reviewed 27 December 2011

Me and a few friends stayed here one weekend in December before Christmas and we couldn't get over how good it was for the money! The location is a little further away from the main Lincoln town but if you dont mind paying 4 pounds for a taxi or a 10 minute walk into town then its all good! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay in Lincoln for a couple of nights,the facilities are great, lots of room. The beds were comfy and clean! The only downside is the welcome... there isn't one really... Getting the key for the rooms was a little wierd as you are directed by a piece of paper!! Also when ringing to ask questions beforehand the person on the other end was not very friendly but sufficiently answered our questions nonetheless.

In sum, we Will be visiting here again and think everyone should give this place a chance. It's great value for money!!

Friendly and helpful, arrived a little late which wasn't a problem. Lovely looking accomodation around a courtyard with parking.

We had 3c, the bedroom was very nice, wooden floors and furniture. Bathroom was a modern tiled wetroom, shower was ok not great. Downstairs there was a kitchen with cooker, kettle, tea, coffee, etc. There was also a sofa and tv with cable tv.

All in all very good, especially considering the price, would definately return!

First class location, a quality development that is obviously maintained well.

Great communication, clean and stylish room I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting the beautiful cathedral city of Lincoln.

The place was basic and functional. Given the price the facilities were acceptable. However the standard of cleaning was not.
Perhaps the cleaner was too horrified by the last occupant's snot and nasal hair smeared over the shower tiles, and their dried up contact lenses on the bedside shelf to actually do any cleaning - I found it pretty disgusting.The cleaning is perfunctory. Whilst the sink had been wiped and the bins had been emptied, the tops and most other surfaces clearly hadn't seen a cloth for a long time, so be prepared for dust, smears and dead flies at best.
With a bit of thought the bathroom could have been nicely arranged, without the shower being stuck under a beam.
As other reviewers have said, the bed creaked beyond belief (it had been diy cobbled together), and you can only get into the double bed from one side which makes it even worse.
'Cable tv' is actually freeview on a 12 inch (yes, really) portable.
On a positive note the bed was clean and the linen was freshly laundered spotless white cotton.

Room Tip: There would seem to be a huge difference between the suites that have been recently refurbished and...

3A IS A DUMP, The sofa has stains on it the floor was sticky and filthy dirty, my son's socks had to be thrown away, the cutlery and crockery was tatty and looked and felt dirty, the place just had this old damp smell and as for the shower, well disgusting black mould, never again, you should be ashamed of yourselves renting it in that condition, you are greedy and lazy people.
