Location, decor and atmosphere. Super room and spacious bathroom
No view from skylights apart from rooftops so couldn't see either castle or Cathedral. Good was good but quite expensive.
Duty manager Mat was very helpful, very professional, in fact excellent.
Lovely welcome at reception and help with my luggage much appreciated. Dining room staff very attentive,and polite.

Excellent overall. Very nice breakfast
everything. the room,the food,the staff,the location.
My fiance and I booked this hotel as a very last minute night away since we had the day off together and wanted to go to Lincoln to sort out some paperwork for our forthcoming wedding. I booked an executive double room for the night at around 10am on the day we wanted to stay so was lucky to get an available room and at a bargain price. We arrived at the Castle Hotel in the early evening which was quite easy to find and had space for us to park around the back of the building. We were greeted by a very courteous and professional young man who was friendly and helpful and showed us to our room. The room was not particularly large but was very well appointed and had a lovely view of the Cathedral and had everything we could possibly need. It was beautifully decorated and had a spacious bathroom with a large walk-in shower which was fabulous! Very comfortable bed and plenty of tea/coffee for our comfort. We decided to eat downstairs and had a bar meal which was lovely and excellent value for money. The staff were at all times very pleasant and helpful and nothing at all was too much trouble. Breakfast next morning was again excellent with a good choice of menu and everything cooked to perfection and piping hot. I would certainly recommend this delightful hotel to anyone and shall certainly stay again in the future.
Position, right in the heart of mediaeval Lincoln Refurbished room really comfortable and well presented Staff tremendously obliging Really innovative restaurant menu, well cooked and presented Best breakfast menu we have ever experienced
Fantastic location, so close to the amazing Cathedral and Castle. Having been to many European cities, this is up there with our favourites - and right on our doorstep too! Love the boutique feel, helpful staff and ambience of the hotel
We could hear a bit of noise from the TV in the next room - but we guess they had it on loud!
Breakfast- excellent Restaurant-very good but a bit pricey Free parking Excellent location being 5 mins walk from the Cathedral
Rooms were on the small side
It was our return and thus 2nd visit back at the Castle Hotel. I was very impressed as previously with the quality of the decor, cleanliness and excellently comfortable bed. We had the same room (102) on our 2nd visit which (may have been coincdiental) but if not was a nice touch on the hotels part and the bathroom shower(s) - note there are 2 :)) 1 american style overhead,- and 1 lower down which can be used for showering down or shampooing and rinsing etc, again cannot be beaten over all over hotels we've stayed in. It was nice to note, that although our 1st visit to the Castle was only in February this year (2014) that most of the staff were the same, doing clearly what they have been doing for presumably some time very well. Nothing is too much trouble for these guys, and they always do what is requested without hesitation, and with excellent manners and genuine smiles and sincerity. Very highly trained. Top draw.
Now to a just a few minor 'bug bears' :- 1. The radiator TRV valve in the room we have been in on both occasions now, - doesn't seem to regulate at all well, even in the OFF position it still came on. Not the best,- given that it was very mild and hot on both evenings stayed. Plumber required - may be worth them paying a bit more for a specialist company, who can do thorough in-depth on the job checks of the radiators, etc. 2. The Bar - the 2nd night we stayed, it was a Saturday evening!! And guess what ... The Castle at Lincoln is only interested in serving guests or non-residents in their A la Carte Formal Dining Room, which is o.k. But... We had done this the night before on the Friday, and whilst the food is excellent (both at Breakfast, and on the Friday night, fresh home-cooked and divine, TOP MARKS guys again),- we were so stuffed, and not being local to Lincoln,- we just fancied a lighter bar meal. I know there are plenty of pubs within the vicinity which do cater fine on any night... but I do feel that the hotel are missing a trick here!!! My guess is, they found perhaps that they weren't getting enough of the right clientele in their Bar for bar meals on Saturday nights, so this may have caused this. Not at all good, given that most people on leisure as we were, like to stay in, guys staying in ... is the new going out these days...! 3. Absolutely every tiny little extra on the Friday evening was charged for, whilst I don't expect anything for nothing, most expensive hotels like this, such as Hilton etc, will sometimes say don't worry about a couple of plates of potatoes, etc, we do well out of guests without overcharging for such extras. The Bottom line ... Go there, it is excellent, but be prepared to pay for every extra cup or refill of coffee etc.. Divine Food, well worth dining in their Restaurant, but if you want a romantic weekend, then their policy of no bar food (which includes room service too!!!
The room was modern and clean and had the necessary amenities. Staff were friendly and helpful. The morning breakfast was nice with plenty of choice.
Limited parking but to be expected within the popular area
I liked the fairly central location, all be it at the top of a VERY steep hill. I liked the breakfast facilities. The staff were relatively pleasant.
The room was overpriced. As a couple we wanted a double room, and what we got was a twin room with the beds pushed together and made into a double. We were put in the disabled room, and told we could move to a double room elsewhere for an extra £10. We also booked late check out, which didn't go through to the hotel. We could book extra time, for an extra £10 an hour! This was rather excessive, considering the room was £115 a night!
We stayed in the self catering cottage which was perfect with the kids. The staff were lovely and very friendly.
Everything, without the best stay to date in Lincoln. Great location uber friendly staff Nothing more needed to say - now my hotel of choice.
Wifi strength was poor and patchy but nothing a decent IT tech couldn't sort, not bad enough to distract from other qualities.
Breakfast was fantastic - lots of choice and very well cooked. The room was comfortable and clean, and location was perfect for visiting the cathedral.
Location. Decor / building Staff. Breakfast. Parking.
Comfort of bed. Early breakfast Early check out.
Location: perfect. Room: beautiful and comfortable. Breakfast: amazing.
Wifi: rubbish in the room we were in, I had no connection. No fridge/mini bar in the room.
The girl on reception was great and very helpful with directions she was on fri night and sat morning.
We asked for a double and got 2 singles
Staff were excellent. Fantastic location.
Cobwebs on the ceiling in the dinning room. Not enough choice on the menu. Smell of drains in en suite. Loud music late into the night and noise from other rooms.
Reforms food was excellent,the decor in the room very nice.
Room service could be better.
Location, staff, breakfast
no air conditioning, so bedroom very hot overnight, even in October with radiator turned off.
Helpful friendly staff. Room comfortable. Nice meal in the restaurant.
Pity about the breakfast the sausage was cold, black pudding burnt and fresh mushroom tasted of garlic. However, this wouldn't stop me from staying here again, I would make a different choice.
Fantastic location, very comfortable bed Probably the quietest hotel (in terms of guest noise ) I have ever stayed in
Nothing, all good
