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 10 minutes' walk away.

Doddington Hall and Gardens is 15 minutes' drive away and the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is 35 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.

An outstanding 98% of over 840 Travelzoo members who visited on a previous deal and rated their experience said they loved it.

The Lincoln Christmas Market takes place from 6-9 December in the medieval square between the castle and the cathedral.

We've also negotiated an afternoon tea for two for £24 or dinner and wine for two for £39.

The en-suite was very chilly (no heating or heated towel rail and cool air coming out of the extract). The water in the shower was scalding and could not be adjusted, but there was a bath to use.
