The Lincoln Hotel is a restored 1960s hotel next to Lincoln Cathedral and 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 décor -- its name is an ode to the spirit of 1967, when Jimi Hendrix played a sell-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.

The hotel hosts a lot of weddings, that can make for disturbed nights and crowded public spaces, car park, etc

Our room was above the function room and they had a wedding going on. The music was very loud and we couldn't get to sleep until early hours. The carpet in the room looked like it hadn't been laid properly. Was a good location but wouldn't stay there again.

Breakfast was extremely busy, and the hotel looks a bit outdated on the outside. Generally ok, but wouldn't pay full price
