  • "Very dated property and even smells old."

    Three piece suite needs replacing. Front bedroom bed and mattress needs replacing. Television needs updating. Shower is tiny with nowhere to put shampoo/soap etcetera. Bathroom sink takes forever to empty. No freezer. Blunt kitchen knives and stained chopping boards. Not even any salt and pepper. Three sheets of tatty A4 paper with limited instructions (laminators are not very expensive!) Drive a very, very tight squeeze for our wheelchair accessible vehicle. Great, quiet location but could be so much better with a little investment. Definitely overpriced for what it is. Begrudgingly bagged the bedding and towels we used as per the tatty instructions. We left early as we couldn't face another night. Would only return if it was updated to a much better standard.

  • "Clean with plenty of space and large garden."

    Owners were very helpful and friendly. I would recommend this place as it’s easy to get in and around the city and there is parking on the road too. Bus route at the end of the road which takes you to town and a park 7mins walk away. Thank you

  • "The property was a home away from home."

    The only issue was being given a few hours to move out after booking for an extension more than a week previously. This left us stranded. Thanks to Sykescottages that refunded the 2 weeks payment promptly. It was wrong to wait till the last minute before being told our stay could no longer continue. This was very distressing to hear. Sykescottages looked for alternatives which could not work for us.

    Thank you for your review. We are delighted to hear that you found Alberts Lodge to be “a home away from home.” We are sorry that we were unable to facilitate the extension of your booking, which, as advised previously, was due to unforeseen circumstances. We did ensure you were refunded as quickly as possible. Thank you once again for your feedback. Property Owner

  • "Albert's Lodge was a great place for us to stay."

    There was plenty of room for just two of us. It was in an ideal location, and was set in a quiet street. We could just see the Cathedral from outside the property. The accommodation was totally adequate, and we had all the facilities we needed. The bungalow was clean and comfortable, and access with the 'key box' was easy too. Had we not had a map of the area, we would have had difficulty finding it from the instructions given though, as we apporached it from the ring road! We did meet one of the owners, who was very polite, when he came to put the bins out. We appreciated his doing that, as we had no idea when they were to be put out. All in all a very enjoyable place to stay.

  • "The bungalow was well-equipped very clean and in a quiet location."

    However the beds were so uncomfortable we had to sleep on sofa and use one bed but sleep on top of 2 quilts This then ruined the stay as we didn't get a good night's sleep

  • "I booked Albert's Lodge for my son to stay during his visit from London."

    The house is very bright, clean and more spacious than expected. The bed linen looked beautiful and excellent quality. The garden is quite spacious and private and the neighborhood seems very quiet and peaceful. The location is great with easy access to Lincoln and all it's attractions. I do feel that the house is looking a little dated in parts and that with a few inexpensive additions and tweaks it could look a little more inviting and cosy. My son really enjoyed his stay but felt (given the place is large enough for a family) that a washing machine would be helpful.

    There was access to a large, well maintained garden. Hartsholme Country Park is 10 minutes away and lovely to walk around. Lincoln with its Castle and Cathedral was a short drive.

  • "Bungalow is basic, old fashioned but clean inside, outside windows, sills ,doors and seating area need cleaning and painting."

    The shower is small and with a high step up into it and no grab rail not very accessible for older people with slight mobility issues.There are no mattress covers, with covid I think these should be in place and draws in the front bedroom would be handy The kitchen pots,pans cutlery and crockery are a all a mishmash and need updating. The toaster base is broken and for a family of 5 a 2 slot toaster is not big enough. The microwave is rusting inside, needs replacing and the oven was dirty inside as we left it, I didn't use it. Kitchen floor covering needs replacing. With a little bit of money this Bungalow could be really nice and a 4 star.

    Thank you for your feedback and highlighting areas for improvement. We do take all guest feedback seriously and made a visit to the property within 24 hours of receiving the information. Following the visit we have acted on the issues raised by yourself and also things we noted during the visit by purchasing new items including microwave, pans etc. We do understand there is a need to decorate the outdoor seating area however this had to be postponed as we do not want to disturb guests with work taking place during their stay and this is to be scheduled for later in the year. I would also like to assure you that we have discussed your concerns regarding Covid safety with our cleaning contractor and made them aware the lack of mattress protection did not meet expectations particularly as mattress and pillow protectors are provided and should be changed on all beds along with the bedding, after each guest has vacated. We have received assurance this will not occur in the future. Thank you again for your feedback. Property Owner

    the dishwasher worked perfectly well so not sure why this had been the case. most cottages have cleaning products onsite but there was nothing here, also a small clothes airer would be useful as we seemed to pick some rainy days. apart from that all ok. bus stop for the city in Ashby Ave just about ten mins away No6 was the one took you right into the city.

    Lamps which were useless. Shower did not have a holder for shampoo etc. or support bar. No shaver / tooth brush point. Bedside tables poor. Cooker and dishwasher with no instructions. No freezer unit, just a larder fridge. Otherwise the bungalow was very well equipped and of an excellent standard.

    It is on a pleasant housing estate so don't expect views of countryside. Large garden with enclosed veranda, we went when it was very hot so a lovely place to sit. Ideally situated for Lincoln 5 minutes away. Country park just up the road with lakes and a cafe. If we visit this area again would definitely book again.
