Orchard House
Ranked #39 of 51 Lincoln B&B and Inns
Reviewed 15 August 2010

Booked in for a couple of nights with my family after reading the excellent reviews but was slightly disappointed with the reality. Only 3 out of the 5 rooms have been decorated in the style you see on the website - the other two (twin and single) are rather dated and worn although they were clean and the beds were comfortable. My room had drink making facilities and a TV (no BBC1 or BBC2) but no hairdryer and no books. The atmosphere was very friendly and relaxed and the owner is totally lovely. Excellent breakfast which sets you up for the day. Great location - easy walk to the castle and cathedral. Overall I would definitely recommend Orchard House and would stay there again but a tiny little bit more attention to detail would have made it 10/10.

Saw this on Tripadvisor and was so taken by the photographs, the reasonable room charges I booked for a family reunion. Was a bit worried just in case it didn't please everyone, however, we all loved it. Beautifully appointed, spotlessly clean, great breakfast and a friendly amenable host, Stephen, who gave us loads of tips about the locale. He also told us about the short-cut up to the castle and cathedral which saved us loads of time. If I could give it more stars I would , and I have no hesitation in recommending it, you couldn't get better service in a 4 star hotel.

A friendly welcome from mine host Stephen, nothing is too much trouble. A lovely clean house, cosy rooms, great decor and a real home from home. The breakfast is well worth dragging yourself out of bed for ! Ample off-road parking This the 2nd time we've been in the last 4 weeks and will be back again very soon. Thanks for everything Stephen, see you soon.

Very friendly, helpful host. Clean well decorated rooms although the decor might not appeal to everyone!
One review says quiet location but I would disagree with this. Yarborough Road can be quite busy and so Room #1 (Purple!) which looks out over the front can be quite noisy, particularly if you like a window open at night. The back rooms (2 & 3) look out over the garden so are much quieter.
Good breakfasts (although I'm not a fan of plastic packs of cheap marmalade/jam!).
We would have liked a lounge area as we were staying with friends, but these are small complaints really.
The walk to the city centre is about 10mins or so, so not bad. It's a great benefit having on site parking and being able to leave the far there during the day.

Quiet location within walking distance of the cathedral castle and old town. Good size rooms, excellent breakfast, onsite parking. Stephen, the delightful host, made our stay very enjoyable.
