nothing everything was really good !!!!
Notthing to dislike.
the room and bath room was clean..breakfast in the room the location
the room was small the Wi-Fi never worked t.v was free view and half cannels not working for the money I pay expected a lot better
Great location for city sightseeing. Nice rooms, friendly staff.
The location was excellent, right next to the cathedral. The breakfast was good and the lounge was comfortable. It is a lovely old building.
The room we were first assigned was practically underground with a window high up that I couldn't see through. This was in the converted church next to the main building. We were given another room in the main building which was much brighter but was like a garret room where we both bumped our heads on the ceiling several times - and I'm only 5ft3in! These were basic price rooms but I had expected a little better for the money.
Location was first class. Excellent staff. Breakfast was good but cheap frozen sausages used.
Furniture not that comfortable. Facilities poor for the price. En-suite small & smelt of sewerage. Car Park cramped. Wi-Fi limited. Upgrade miss-leading as picture did not represent the actual room we stayed in. Could use better locally sourced products such as sausages.
setting good breakfast friendly staff handy car park
noisy shower wouldn't stop dripping
Wi Fi in rooms would be helpful.
Ideally situated to explore Lincoln. Very interesting building with lots of character. Our bedrooms were located in the roof of the church adjacent to the main building. Very comfortable with pretty decoration. Good range of teas and biscuits in the room. Staff were very helpful and friendly.
Breakfast was a bit average. The walls in King's room where breakfast was served were a little plain and needed pictures or more interesting decoration.
Closeness to the Cathedral Unusual buildings and historic setting Breakfast and breakfast staff
On our second stay the single beds were a tad firm
Comfortable and tasteful rooms. Friendly staff. Good breakfast in a stunning garden room. Beautiful garden with view. An unpretentious, lovely hotel in a stunning historic location. Loved it.
Our room was above the kitchen fans, so it did disrupt our sleep especially when they started up very early in the morning.
Position - right at the cathedral. Our room was in the lodge, a converted little church. The rooms are beautifully appointed, and the beds very comfortable. We really enjoyed the church bells ringing on the night we were there - it must have been a special occasion, the sound was magnificent. The staff was very helpful in many way. A very pleasant stay!
Nothing. All was perfect!
Location,peace and quiet, lovely terrace and garden. Pleasant, kind staff. Good breakfast.
Lovely big bed in a room which was a bit cramped.
Location in the Cathedral Quarter. Character property. Lovely breakfast and service.
The church part of the hotel over looking the Cathedral in the historic quarter.
Fantastic location right beside the cathedral with good car parking with impressive old world architecture. Very enjoyable in a location you would think is a privilege to stay at. Nice.
Room was a little cramp, but fine. No air con, but in a building this old...not expected.
Location. Classy bit of history.
Hard to find and then to get to in auto.
Location and good staff
Dirty carpet in the lift
Location right beside the cathedral.
1)Receptionist not particularly welcoming 2)Room (in the annexe) rather small, bed not very comfortable 3) Bathroom well appointed but extremely small and inconvenient 4)Breakfast - Full English - had an egg which was hard, and cratered, though the white was sloppy. I asked the waiter to have it replaced. 5 minutes later he brought back the exact same plate (the egg was recognizable) and asked "Is that all right, sir?" I said it was not, and asked how difficult the "chef" found it to cook an egg. Eventually I was served an acceptably cooked egg. This was not a cheap hotel, from the price we paid, but it is by no means up to the standard it professes in its advert. It felt more like slightly superior student accommodation than a good hotel room.
Loved the position of this hotel, left the car and walked everywhere. Good old world charm with a modern edge. Lovely room in the Lodge Annexe, very comfortable , spotlessly clean, with a super shower room. The grounds are lovely with a great view. Lovely staff, breakfast was smashing, plenty of choice. Would go back in a second as so quiet and peaceful . Really good value as well!
Nothing at all
Very friendly and obliging staff; you feel that one could make a little more of the amazing buildings they have.
Just about everything,including the price.
The room we stayed in was really unique and had a fantastic window. The breakfast was excellent
Difficult to find the hotel
This hotel is in a stunning location with accommodation that is equally stunning.
