Arranged to have a cup of tea with my Aunty Dorothy who is an octogenarian and her partner Eric who is a nonagenarian. Now before thinking I have the longevity genes, Dorothy is not a blood relative. My Aunty Marion who is my mothers sister reached her early 80s so I live in hope that I will still be able to annoy my darling wife for another 30 years. Derby ...
Yesterday Julie lost a crown from her teeth so today we hoped to make an appointment with a Southwell dentist. We found one just a short walk from the Mill so off we set. Julie went to reception of the Minster Dental Service, crown in hand, and was told to take seat, a dentist will ...
... people were unaware of this as we wanted to surprise people except for my family as I am rubbish at keeping secrets and told them straight away. Lying to your nearest and dearest is actually very stressful and I was just too excited! Anyway the surprises started on Monday when we told Sarah Green who didn't believe us but offered to pick us up from the airport. She now had the task of deceiving our friends for five days. We stealthily kept our Facebook presence to a minimum with a lack ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Lincoln Hotel
El exterior del hotel es feo. Una vez dentro, las cosas cambian. Le recepción, el bar y el restaurante estan decorados de forma moderna y agradable. Nuestra habitación estaba en la parte antigua, lo que fué una suerte, ya que era muy agradable la decoración, el tamaño y sobre todo.... la vista de la caterdal. El baño es un poco viejo y sobre todo, frio!
We stayed at the hotel in Jan 2006, and had read the other comments, and were expecting problems! But the receptionist was pleasant, decor fine, and service attentive. The rooms (and most of the decor) would have been fashionable some years ago, but are in a fair state.
My partner and I stayed here on a Saturday night at the beginning of October. All hotels in Lincoln are expensive for what they are. Apparently this is to do with demand outstripping supply, exascerbated by extra tourists coming into the town because of its links with the Davinci code.
Stayed at this hotel based on the review written and the excellent location. It is very central for the cathedral and the castle, although the cathedral can be quite noisy first thing on a Sunday morning (there does not seem to be a logic with the chiming of the bells)
A weekend at the Lincoln Hotel Eastgate was most relaxing. The staff were welcoming and helpful. The breakfast delicious and plentiful, as were the lounge snacks. Our twin en-suit room backed onto a very pleasant garden view. The beds were comfortable. The cathedral bells could only be heard if the window was open, but we liked them anyway. We will visit again.
Having grown up in Lincolnshire it seemed a little odd to be staying in a hotel that I used to travel past each time I went to Lincoln on a teenage shopping trip. The exterior hasn't improved, it still resembles a multi storey carpark but inside they have tried to make it more 'now'. That doesn't matter though. If you stay here you MUST ask for a Cathedral view, it's what this hotel is all about. It's worth putting up with the bells chiming every 15 minutes just to be able to look out on one of the city's famous landmarks. The rooms are pretty big if a little dated in places. The bathrooms need completely modernising to bring them up to scratch. The staff are friendly and helpful and willing to do anything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Room service is efficient but why no 'Full English' breakfast? What a shame! Lincoln is a fantastic city, it's friendly, the shopping is much improved to how I remember it when I was younger. If you like Italian food then check out ASK on Brayford Wharf. It's part of a chain of restaurants and it has a Cookies and Cream cheesecake to die for! All in all we had a great time in Lincoln and I can safely say that The Lincoln Hotel is a lovely place to stay.
Superb Hotel in Wonderful Location
We have just returned froma 2 night break in Lincoln. We stayed at the Lincoln Hotel and had a super time. The hotel was excellent, food great and the staff very friendly and helpful. They gave us information on places to visit and things to do, noting was too much trouble. Our room looked over what must be the most exquisite cathedral I have ever sceen.
Great time, great stay, will return
The hotel is in a great location, the front rooms with a fine view of Lincoln Cathedral, and things were acceptable for an inexpensive ordinary but redone 1960s hotel--- until the time of checkout. We were unjustly accused us of five scratches to the wallpaper, with seventy pounds (about $130) added to the bill. When we insisted that we had nothing to do with the damage, the manageress said she would charge our card anyway, even without our permission. We signed for the other charges, and she later put a separate charge on the credit card without our signature. She also threatened to call the police (but did not) and to pursue it as a "civil matter". This was the ugly end to a visit to a good long and sacred Palm Sunday weekend in the Lincoln area. We are a middle-aged couple, a medical doctor and an artist famous in her field. We have travel all over the world, for two or three months a year. We have never experienced anything like this.
I'm glad I strayed in Lincoln
I recently strayed here on my way to York. It was such a surprise, I never knew Lincoln was such a charming old town, the Casle is incredible and the Cathedral is too. The hotel looks a little out of place in the middle of all the old buildings ,but when you get inside, its really friendly and comfortable with great art and a cosy bar. We had one of the best rooms which looks right over the Cathedral. I think they had just made over our room (302) and it was excellent, modern but nice colours and a good bathroom. We only had breakfast but that was good and the Restaurant was full so I would say the food is pretty good too Next year I am going to get back and take more time in Lincoln.
The Hotel sits in a fantastic location right in the Cathedral Close and looks out onto the Cathedral from all the principal rooms.
Now under new ownership and management it is changing fast and by the summer of 02 will be the best stay in town.
The new owners promise to bring in local foods,(Delicous Pork Pies, Stilton Cheese,and the freshest Veg etc etc) all made or grown in the County.
The Dining Room is perfect for Sunday Lunch and the Bar Menu serves all the usual snacks PLUS traditional Cucumber Sandwhiches and Toast and Strawberry Jam for Tea!!!
Rates will remain HIGHLY COMPETITIVE.
