  • "Great location - only a ten minute walk to the cathedral and castle (and no hill!"

    ) - and nice property. We were there at Christmas so it was too cold to use the generous outdoor space, but found the property better, if anything, than we were expecting (might be worth including a floor plan in the property details to explain the layout?). Very grateful for the efforts to prepare the house for our arrival and the little gifts waiting for us. Thank you.

    We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your Christmas break and thank you for your feedback. Property Owner

  • "Our group (five retired males) really enjoyed our stay at Lincoln House."

    The accommodation was very good and suited our needs perfectly. It's proximity to the Castle/Cathedral/Top of Steep Hill was great. We found great Pubs and some great places to eat within a short distance. My friends and I will hopefully be back at Lincoln House to further explore the City sometime next year.

    We are pleased to hear that Lincoln House met your needs. We would love to welcome you back again in the future. Property Owner

  • "Although parking was restricted directly outside the property parking was never a problem."

    The property was comfortable and there was room for us all (4 adults, 3 children and 2 dogs). So overall it was a really good place to stay and a good base for Lincoln city. Just a couple of minor niggles, the hinge on the stairgate needs mending. The cold tap in the downstairs bathroom needs fixing. Could do with a few more pots and pans for the amount of people that can stay. Aside from this we would be more than happy to stay here again.

  • "Lovely place to stay."

    A real hidden gem. Everything you could need in a kitchen for cooking a family meal. Lovely sizes bedrooms and with 3 bathrooms so easy for all the guests to share. Although above a shop we had no problems parking and neighbours were friendly. The owners made us feel very welcome.

  • "Facilities inside the cottage were generally very good."

    The furthest back bedroom lacked a bedside cabinet which was quite irksome as there was nowhere for me to put my glasses and phone at night. Even a small shelf would be useful here. Heating was good although I had to manually turn down the temperature before going to bed as it seemed otherwise to run all night with the associated noise from the expanding and contracting pipes/floorboards. The large fridge in the kitchen was excellent as was the milk and loaf - a nice touch and appreciated. The tumble dryer filter had apparently not been cleaned for a long time, and was completely filled with fluff, to the point of being a potential fire hazard. I cleaned it but we eventually did not use the washing facilities after all! But having both a washing machine and dryer available was excellent. We figured out how to use the TV/Sky Box in the downstairs lounge which was fine for the amount we used it. Parking is a huge issue - but probably not much you can do about it. If we wanted to return to the cottage during the day for more than 30 minutes we were stuck, as finding a parking space anywhere near the cottage was all but impossible. And we had to leave by 08:30am if parked outside or just hope the traffic warden hadn't been down that street yet. Twice I got a parking space over the road - luxury! Would we return? The lack of parking would be a deterrent, but the cottage was very good.
