Beautiful 1930's Art Deco building directly opposite Lincoln Castle and only a few minutes' walk from the Cathedral and historic Bailgate, with its selection of independent shops and restaurants.

Washingborough Hall Hotel, hotel in Lincoln

This family-run Georgian manor is set in secluded grounds only 3 miles from Lincoln and has an AA rosette award for its food. Free WiFi and free private parking are available.

Completely met expectations and was situated in a very quiet and secluded location. It's clear much emphasis is given to guests comfort, and the whole ambience is one of indulgence. Whilst we didn't dine in, other than to enjoy the fabulous breakfast, then I am sure the experience would have been very worthwhile, but we wanted to explore a little further. Next time, however, we will pencil in a full dining experience.

Woodcocks, Lincoln by Marston's Inns, hotel in Lincoln

Set in Lincoln, 6.5 km from Lincoln University, Woodcocks, Lincoln by Marston's Inns offers accommodation with a garden, free private parking, a restaurant and a bar.

Very easy & swift check-in by a pleasant hostess in the bar reception. The room was clean & had everything we needed for our overnight stay. Plenty of sockets everywhere, usb sockets on each side of the bed and amazingly a socket under the dressing table mirror for plugging in hair stylers etc (a hairdryer is provided anyway). The bathroom was clean with plenty of towels including 2 large bath sheets. We had a great nights sleep as the room had air con and was very quiet. We didn’t eat breakfast so can’t comment on the food but there was plenty of tea/coffee and milk sachets for an early morning drink. In summery, don’t expect lots of frills but you should have a comfortable stay.

FAQs about hotels in Lincoln






The Glory of Medieval England

Lincoln was a powerhouse of medieval England and retains amazing monuments from that period. In the Uphill district is the castle built for William the Conqueror. Inside its an original copy of the Magna Carta and its ramparts offer fabulous city views. Across the cobbled square which houses the large Christmas market is huge Lincoln Cathedral whose unusual façade features 2 tall towers, while another at its centre overlooks the Bishop’s Palace.

Connecting the cathedral quarter with the Downhill district is aptly named Steep Hill, a narrow street lined with unique shops and historic buildings including the Jew’s House. Even older are the Roman Newport Arch, Mint Wall and the well on Bailgate.

This road slopes down to meet the River Witham at High Bridge, a stone-arched structure with a half-timbered building atop that is the oldest of its kind in England. Lincoln boat trips depart from the Brayford Pool just west.

Another monument is the 18th-century Ellis Mill, opposite the Museum of Lincolnshire Life. The Collection combines an archaeology museum and art gallery, while The Lawn has a conference centre and the Joseph Banks Conservatory, displaying artefacts he brought back from adventures with Captain Cook.

Booking.com’s Lincoln accommodation covers luxury waterfront hotels, guest houses by the university and cheap apartments near the train station.

    Lincoln is a city dating back to Roman times with many buildings and ancient remains to see. It's more recent history associated with WWI and the invention of the tank can be discovered in the museum of Lincolnshire Life, and its WWII connection to bomber command, the Dam Busters and the RAF can be explored in the poignant International Bomber Command centre and memorial. Lincoln has a very lively pub and restaurant scene, catering for every taste. The cathedral quarter is the most scenic although car parking can be at a premium.

    Stunning cathedral - would recommend the floor and roof tours and the cafe. The Victorian prison in the castle and the ramparts walk are well worth visiting. There is a very steep hill (called Steep Hill!) linking the lower and upper part of the city where the historic centre is.

    I love Lincoln!

    I love Lincoln! I have been 3 times now and keep finding interesting places to go that I either didn't have time for before or hadn't come across. The view from the Castle is amazing - suitable for all weathers. The Victorian Prison inside the Castle is unique and well worth a visit. The Cathedral is breathtaking with a wonderful restaurant attached, helping to extend my visit there. Lots of shops, cafes, bars, cinema, theatre, galleries, etc. Everywhere is welcoming and good value for money. Perfect for a long weekend but also enough to do for a week's stay. I travelled by train there and could walk to everywhere easily. I have used the buses as well, which are easy to navigate.

    I regularly go to Lincoln to visit family and stay for a few days when I can. Some parts of the old town area are difficult to access due to cobblestones and narrow pavements with mobility aids. The cathedral is well worth a visit. Shops and restaurants are plentiful.

    Lincoln is two towns, a lower one which is like many towns in England and an upper town, which is special. At the centre is a square across which the cathedral and castle face one another. The cathedral is so large and impressive that it dominates everything else

    Great venue for a weekend away - you can walk everywhere (steep slope up to the Castle andCathedral). The Cathedral is stunning and the Castle worth the trip on it's own. The £16 ticket seemed a lot, but it was well worth it. A guided tour outside, a walk with audio set around the castle walls, a visit to the old prison and, to cap it all, to see the Magna Carta (one of the four existing copies in existence). With the cafe on site we spent a very full morning seeing everything - allow 4 hours to do it justice.

    From the moment we arrived to the time we left every member of staff was so friendly and profesional. The hotel is in a perfect location we could see the Cathedral from our window. Bedroom and bathroom were both comfortable and very clean. The breakfast we had was one of the best I have ever had, as we were travelling with our dog we ate our breakfast in the bar area (as dogs are not allowed in the restaurant) on a table set up just for us Ivy (our dog) even had her own Lincoln sausage. Would recommend this hotel to eveyone

    great location, very nice clean en-suite room. I stayed for a couple of nights over the weekend. very welcoming staff, the owner Darren was very considerate and was very helpful in efficiently getting through the contactless checkin. in my opinion this guest house is way better than the local chain hotels, has more character and is way cheaper in comparison. situated only about 15 mins walk from the city centre is an ideal location. would highly recommend and would definitely stay there again if I’m ever that way again!

    Arrived at the Loudor and filled out my cooked breakfast request with what ever I wanted. The room was so quiet and the bed super comfy! Breakfast the next day was amazing! It was such a surprise to be served by a talking robot- loved every minute of it. There were plenty of cereals to eat, the cooked breakfast was excellent quality and the owner Wendy was so friendly. The parking is free and the hotel was super clean and felt just so safe which is important to me as a single traveller.

    This hotel is my favourite place to stay in Lincoln. It has a homely, friendly feel and the staff are a delight. The building and amenities are beautiful and cosy. I personally really like that a delicious croissant breakfast is delivered to the room and that there is milk, orange juice and water in the fridge. I upgraded this time to a deluxe room to get a bath and it was a beautiful bath, as well as the room having a stained glass window with great views.

    Lovely, comfortable, clean hotel with very friendly and welcoming staff. Our room overlooked the Brayford wharf area which is attractive both night and day. The hotel is situated a short walk from a large number of bars, restaurants and Lincoln City Centre itself. The breakfast options and quality are absolutely top drawer, the choice is formidable. This was our third mini break here this year and it certainly won't be our last.

    This lovely property is in an ideal location to explore Lincoln and enjoy the sites of the city. If you have car it’s easy to access and parking is convenient. We enjoyed the privacy and it felt quite relaxing having an outdoor space with a whole place to ourselves. It is well appointed, quiet and comfortable. We will absolutely stay here when we return to Lincoln.

Ideal for exploring the Cathedral, Castle and higher level above Steep Hill, with bars and restaurants within a few minutes walk.
