My partner and I have travelled to almost all continents and to over 25 countries in the world. We have stayed in a wide range of hotels, which range from "cheap-and-cheerful" to "5-7 star luxury".. Lincoln House just stands out amongst the crowd! And this superb result...in every category! Personalised service from the family owners and staff (some of whom...

Stayed for one night at the hotel. The house/hotel has 4 floors... and of course I was right at the top. Everything was there as you'd expect from a major chain hotel and breakfast was excellent, parking was right around the back of the property with a good security light in operation. All in all a comfortable stay but possibly...

Best breakfast I've had in a long time with beautifully cooked local ingredients. The room was immaculate and comfortable with an excellent shower. And the staff were all friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

This traditional styled hotel deserves better praise. We stayed in a classic double. Very spacious room, comfortable king size bed, very clean, lovely decor. Great bathroom and shower. Very good breakfast. We will definitely return and stay longer. Friendly, attentive and respectful staff and service. This was our first visit to Cardiff and the stay here helped make sure that...

The best hotel breakfast ever! Friendly, helpful but non-intrusive staff. Very comfortable room and very unusually, good reading lights. Although the car park is small and first come first serve, there was plenty of parking on the street outside. We really enjoyed our stay here.

Lovely hotel, very nice rooms and service in reception and at breakfast was second to none. I've stayed at quite a few b&b's on Cathedral Road, and this is one of the best. Decor throughout was very nice. Everywhere clean and looked after. Breakfast was very good with an excellent selection. Will definitely be back.

Wonderful hotel! Lovely room, great shower, comfy bed and breakfast was just right. About 20min walk from main shopping centre with lovely indoor market. As I tire easily, we walked into town, pottered about, had something to eat and then got a taxi back (£5.30, Dec 2016). Would definitely stay here again!

My husband and I stayed in the 4 poster bed room for my birthday. Check in was easy and staff were friendly. Parking at the rear is brilliant in the busy city! The room was immaculate as was the rest of the hotel. We had a drink from the bar and sat in the lounge, which is beautiful. Breakfast is...

I spent three nights in this nice traditional hotel whilst on a birdwatching break in the area. A well maintained hotel with a very comfortable room.

Very pleasant stay at this hotel. Good parking. I was on the third floor and as I have recently sustained an arm injury was very pleased when the staff offered to help with my luggage. Thank you. Well appointed room and bathroom, and although on a main road was nice and quiet. Nicely poached eggs for breakfast. Many rooms could...
