wonderful to wake up to the sound of the cathedral bells, lovely location ,historic hotel
long wait for breakfast due to small room and staff shortages but staff were apologetic and tried their best to be helpful when food eventually arrived it was excellent
Always pleasant and helpful staff. Cracking breakfast!!
Perfect location, beautiful surroundings, a comfortable friendly place to stay. Our room was small but very comfortable and clean. Staff were friendly and helpful. Our breakfast was lovely and the service excellent. We would love to stay here again!
Decoration, cleanliness, comfort and location. The breakfast is really nice.
Everything! Best place we've ever stayed in, beautiful!
Having to leave!
Nearness to Cathedral where we were the choir in residence for the weekend and we both sang solos.
T V signal kept breaking up
Fabulous room great atmosphere in historical surroundings. Great position in Lincoln very near to old Lincoln. Lovely breakfast.
Difficult to find unless you knew where you were going in Lincoln.
Everything. The location. The ambience. The helpful staff.
The bathroom in the standard room is smaller compared with other boutique hotels.
The hotel has a fantastic location next to the Cathedral and with a great view over Lincoln from one side. The Lodge is set apart a short distance from the main building, with v nice rooms. There was a wedding party on that day, but being in the Lodge - we avoided any noise disturbance (which may not have been an issue anyway). Breakfast was great, the staff were great and it was a very comfortable stay.
Some noise during the early hours when neighbouring people showered/flushed toilets but only a problem if you're a very light sleeper.
Pets allowed. The room was well furnished and very clean. The location was excellent for the top of town, with restaurants to walk to. The receptionist dealt with my "little" problem sensibly and courteously,thankyou.
A dark room and very small.Not being in the main hotel.( had to go outside, probably OK in the warm weather!)Being told off at breakfast as we didn't get into the dining room until about 9.25!Then informed chef may not cook us breakfast!!!!When we eventually were given our poached eggs, I had a piece of shell in mine so could not eat them!! Also may I just add,that your reception needs to smell a bit nicer. Smelt of lamb fat, on both days.
Location was excellent for what we wanted to see. Bed comfortable, room adequate.
Reception staff - we were not greeted by them on one single occasion during our stay. Other staff were polite and helpful. The plumbing ( a macerator) in our room and adjacent rooms were very noisy every time the loo was used or a tap was run.
Kate the manager was so attentive and gracious in helping us arrange our stay. Kate is the best representative of the Old Palace hospitality.
The hotel building, breakfast and staff were excellent. The location was oerfect for cisiting shops, restaurants and bars as well as the castle and minster
The shower had difficulties draining which the hotel were aware of but meant that you had to be wary of the water building up in the tray. The hotel was really difficult to find without better directions and a different post code. It took three phone calls to be guided in and there were no visible signs from the road
Beautiful room. Location was perfect for sightseeing, shopping and eating out.
Great location and lovely historic building.
Room was really nice if a little tired, could do with a sympathetic makeover.
Location next to cathedral and steep hill. Fabulous suite in converted church.
Hard to find by car
The suite was fantastic in every way,Gothic,rustic, a dream.Would recommend this hotel.
Ideal location. Very spacious and comfortable room in the chapel. Fine breakfast.
Breakfast was hot and made to order. Restaurant staff for breakfast were friendly and welcoming.
Advertised as spacious room, this was not the case, a superior room at this location was standard size, bigger rooms at cheaper hotel chains, shower door did not close properly resulting in water over the floor. Pictures on this site are not a true representation to the room you will stay in, our room was definitely not as elegant or as spacious as depicted. King size bed = two singles pushed together with an uncomfortable ridge down the middle. All in all disappointing stay and not worth the expensive price tag.
Stunning scenery & impressive architecture nearby, welcoming staff, great food
Occasional minor noise disturbances, restaurant staff helpful but could improve knowledge of menu, wifi broken in breakfast room
Atmosphere,Period,History,Room,Decoration,Breakfast and the proximity of Cathedral and City
Bar room was closed for a function.
We liked everything about this place
There was nothing we didn't like
Wonderful staff who went out of there way to provide an excellent friendly service.
Thr reception area is a little tired and not very welcoming this coupled with a rather brusque attitude from the first receptionist we had dealings with gave a poor impression. Luckily the situation was saved by the rest of the staff who were lovely.
the convienience to the cathedral and other facilities
We did not realise we had to go outside to our bedroom and were not notified of the numerous stairs to breakfast and dining ng areas as well as to the outside chapel for our bedroom
