This was our second visit to the hotel. This is, without doubt, the best hotel in Lincoln. It's perfectly positioned right in the centre, the rooms are terrific and the staff can't do enough to make your stay perfect. The food is terrific too. It won't be long before we are back.

Lovely hotel and great location to explore the castle/cathedral and surrounding area. Fantastic view of the cathedral from bedroom window. Small but well equipped bedroom only downside is hotel only offers standard double bed and if you are going away with a hippo this is a bit if a squeeze. Also water pipes from other rooms a bit noisy and...

Free city centre parking in a great location at the top of Steep Hill with views of the Cathedral. Helpful staff, very clean and modern rooms with a good size shower. Excellent breakfast choices for a good value. The only downside was the noise through the rooms was loud, so you could hear next door. Also although it was winter...

My friend and I stayed here for our annual Christmas shopping trip. As always, a lovely room, friendly welcome and a wonderful breakfast. Add to that a brilliant location - already booked for next years trip!

First, the good points. The hotel is excellently located for tourists, with the cathedral, castle and Steep Hill very close, along with many restaurants. It has its own, free, parking. There was no noise from the outside. The room was well furnished and the bed comfortable. However, the sound proofing between bedrooms (I was in the main building) was terrible....

After reading all the good reviews I was very disappointed, I had to wonder if I was staying in the correct hotel. I appreciate popularity influences the price, but I would at least have expected reviews that reflected the reality. When a hotel charges well over a hundred pounds per night it is going to be compared to the best...

Wasn't expecting much due to looking at previous trip advisor comments after booking it but was pleasantly surprised upon arrival. Was greeted by helpful staff and shown to two nicely decorated, clean and spacious rooms. It was a lovely stay topped off with a wonderful fresh cooked breakfast that was not skimping on portions! Great value, comfortable stay in perfect...

Every member of staff at The Castle provided excellent service. Service at reception and in the restaurant was delivered promptly and with a smile. I left my iPad behind and it was posted immediately and I received it the following morning. Housekeeping deserves particular mention - my room was spotless every day and they even changed the bed linen halfway...

My wife and I normally have the kids with us when we do nights away but not this time and so, rather than a Premier Inn, we booked what we were told was one of the best rooms at the Castle Hotel. Unfortunately, the price was twice that of a Premier Inn for much poorer standard of accommodation and maintenance...

We stayed here for the weekend. In terms of booking the staff were very helpful and came back quickly on any questions . Upon arrival their is a car park at the side of the hotel very tight and would imagine not big enough if hotel is full , but a large public car park opposite if full. Upon arrival...
