Love the lunch deal on a travelzoo voucher. Great service, lovely food, small intimate dining room. Would definitely recommend. Easy to find with car park, opposite Lincoln Castle & a short walk down steep hill to the main shopping area. Hike back up not so quick (steep hill☺)

Normally I find somewhere better to stay, but every now and then I'm dumped in the tired, dated and smelly - yes, smelly Lincoln Hotel. There is a unique smell in the corridors, most probably from the carpets which haven't been...
