Opposite the impressive Lincoln Cathedral and a 5-minute walk from the city centre is The Lincoln Hotel.
Score from 642 reviews Very good
Built on the foundations of a medieval palace, this elegant hotel sits in the shadow of Lincoln Cathedral. It blends traditional features with modern amenities like flat-screen TVs and free internet.
Score from 612 reviews Fabulous
Dating back to the 12th century, this Grade II listed bed and breakfast is less than 100 metres from Lincoln Cathedral. Original stone fireplaces and wooden beams feature throughout Cathedral View.
Score from 267 reviews Exceptional
In Lincoln centre, 4 minutes’ walk from Lincoln Cathedral and the University of Lincoln, the Poplars offers traditional bed and breakfast accommodation. Free Wi-Fi and free parking are available.
Score from 345 reviews Very good
A calm and peaceful stay with excellent eateries close by. You can come and go as you please with two simple codes to let yourself into the hotel. If you're a couple who just want to relax and take in the sights within walking distance in the centre of Lincoln, brilliant. Recommended.
We had room 3 and unfortunately there is a sodium street light fixed to the outside wall alongside window! Not the hotels fault, of course, but thicker curtains would help prevent so much light coming in at night.
Hotel was really traditional with shutters instead of curtains and four poster beds great. Lounge and honesty bar fab and good value for money. Breakfast at tapas bar is also really good. In fact nothing to dislike.
Everything the accommodation was excellent, the staff were very friendly and helpful, the location was ideal we could not fault this visit and are already making plans to stay again in the new year well done everyone.
Decor, ambience, location, staff, facilities
Parking charge for some. Breakfast room too small
Friendly efficient staff. Beautiful room with comfy bed. Large bathroom. Quiet night's sleep. Honesty bar and lounge area. Informal yet classy. Great value.
Bathroom décor could do with a bit of attention
Staff location honesty box in lounge - great idea comfy lounge with free tea and coffee to help yourself free bottles of water, biscuits and chocolates each day. dressing gowns lovely soft towels toiletries car park
perhaps bedroom could have been a little more comfortable. Had room 3 - a new cushion on the comfy chair wouldn't go amiss. bedside table at both sides would be good. New net curtain at window
Lovely interior to the house. Friendly and helpful staff.
The value for money .
Having to pay extra for a cooked breakfast . Damaged ceiling in room.
Central position, good use of house with mediaeval core, friendly and helpful staff.
Bathroom door catch tending to jam. Bare stone not an appropriate finish for bathroom and toilet walls. Sloppy cleaning of shared bathroom - used towels and multiple used shampoo bottles. Open air passage to breakfast a trial in heavy rain.

Location: at the top of Steep Hill near the cathedral. Staff: good welcome and helpful. Guest lounge: spacious and comfortable guest lounge with tea/coffee/drinks available. Secure car parking on site.
Our room was on the top floor with no lift and so we had to climb up two steep staircases with bags; help was offered but the climb might be difficult for guests with accessibility requirements. Rooms are available on the ground floor. Wi-fi was only accessible in the guest lounge, but this was a comfortable area. Breakfast was in the adjoining tapas restaurant; limited choices and poor value.
Atmospheric location in Bailgate near cathedral, castle and Roman remains. Period furnishings in room. Very comfy bed. Lounge facilities.
A big deal was made at Reception about us booking cooked breakfast but as vegetarians. This was noted and was going to be passed on to the restaurant next door. When we arrived for breakfast there was no recognition of any message and the veggie breakfast was the same as the meat-eaters minus meat. Even youth hostels have heard of veggie sausages!
Very friendly staff, lovely room full of character, comfy bed. We were upgraded to four poster room which was nice surprise.Good breakfast in tapas bar next door.
Nothing to dislike
This was a last minute booking and what a gem . Beautiful house , Fabulous room and lovely welcoming staff . Also the well stocked honesty bar . Couldn't wish for a better location seeing the cathedral from the bedroom window . Highly recommend and will be staying there again in the future .
Not to sure about the shower shoe horned into the bedroom .
The location was excellent for the cathedral & castle. Good restaurants & pubs. Excellent room & honesty bar.
Having to leave
No space for a wardrobe and the only hanging rail was not high enough to accommodate even an ordinary day dress. The chandelier directly above the stairs had only one of the six bulbs working
Excellent location for visiting the cathedral. Staff were pleasant and efficient.
Breakfast was passable but could be much better.
We visited for the annual Steampunk weekend, which is all based around the castle and cathedral. So Bail House is perfectly situated. The car park was almost full be we managed to squeeze in (and a car park is a great asset here). As we'd brought a friend, we booked a "family" room and this turned out to be better than we expected, being a good-sized suite of two rooms, with views of the cathedral to one side (but away from the street). The bathroom wasn't fantastic and the décor in the bedrooms wasn't up to date but all was tidy and clean. The public rooms downstairs are great, with a very comfortable and stylish lounge and an honesty bar. Breakfast requires stepping outdoors, into the back yard and then into the next door restaurant (Spanish). But that wasn't a problem at all and breakfast was good.
Room would benefit from an update. Not cheap (although good value). Car park is small.
Location. Beds were clean and comfortable.
Rooms smelt musty and damp. Reception phone not answered. Rooms should have been cleaner.
Staff friendly and very competent and efficient. Breakfast in Tapas Bar was awesome the owner is Spanish and great to talk to
Tuesday late evening/early Wednesday morning loads of noisy people at 3am going past my bedroom window that was right on the street. Must have been the students or yuppies.
The wifi.5. The rooms decor. Close proximity to city centre.
Having to share bathroom and toilet facilities. Uncomfortable bed. And sofas.
Everything especially the breakfast
Had to pay for parking and was not aware of that
door in bedroom not suitable for children. sewage leak in toilet. Milk for amenities was off.
