The Lincoln Hotel, a refurbished 1960s property next to Lincoln Cathedral, is a great base from which to explore the medieval city. The hotel is close to the Westgate Water Tower, The County Assembly Rooms, the Priory Arch and the Medieval Bishops' Palace.

Lincoln Castle, a Norman castle constructed in the late 11th century by William the Conqueror, is five minutes' walk away. The Collection Usher Gallery, which houses an eclectic range of works by famous artists, decorative arts and timepieces, and the Museum of Lincolnshire Life, which celebrates the culture of Lincolnshire and its people from 1750 to the present day, are both within 15 minutes' walk away.

Doddington Hall and Gardens is 20 minutes' drive away and the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is 40 minutes away.

The hotel's AA-Rosette Green Room restaurant combines traditional flavours with a contemporary twist and sources local ingredients. "The Green Room has a striking, design-led interior, with candles and fresh flowers adding a homely touch", says The AA, which also praises the hotel's "superb uninterrupted views of Lincoln Cathedral".

You can relax in the lounge with a coffee and a cake or have a pre-dinner aperitif in Bar 67, which has retro déco -- its name is an ode to the spirit of 1967, when Jimi Hendrix played a sold-out gig at Lincoln's ABC Cinema.

Rooms are decorated with modern designs and all come with Wi-Fi and tea- and coffee-making facilities. Superior Rooms have views of Lincoln Cathedral or garden views, and some have a private patio.

Smart clean rooms. Gave us a quiet room as requested. Breakfast was buffet style, not the best but OK. Nice views of cathedral from breakfast venue. Shame the bed was a small double.

Other Comments
Rooms were quite large but we didn't pay extra for a cathedral view so at the back of the building and so glad as the bells ring a lot , hourly etc. Had water and biscuits in room complimentary nice touch.

The food was exceptionally good, the staff were attentive and the rooms were clean. However, in the lift, corridors and room itself there was an overpowering smell of air freshener that made my throat itch. Unfortunately, as the weather was so cold, we couldn't open the windows long enough to get rid of it.

We booked this as a deal through travelzoo and as such it included dinner in their fine dining room (The Green Room)and, as such we have given it 5* as value for money but cannot comment on the normal price. It was a standard room with a view of the rooms in the next wing. The corridors to the standard rooms are looking rather careworn but the rest of the building is fine. We enjoyed our stay and the fine dining resturant food and staff were excellent. There is also a more standard style dining area but we only experienced this for breakfast.
