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 décor -- 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.

Really good value- The food in The Green Room nice but the hotel was trying too hard to be different and seemed to receive a lot of negative comments not may empty plates. Maybe more 'Gastro Pub' style food would be easier and not receive so many complaints.

This hotel is in the perfect location for visiting the Lincoln Cathedral and Castle. We chose the superior room which had great views of the cathedral especially at night when the cathedral towers were illuminated. The hotel itself has a very friendly atmosphere with a great breakfast. We used the restaurant in the evening as we booked the dinner option and the food and service was excellent with a few complimentary additions brought to our table. The beds are very comfortable with nice bathrooms. The hotel car park was excellent value at £5 for our complete stay.
