Top tips for finding the perfect Lincoln hotel

Hotels in Lincoln’s historical Cathedral Quarter offer direct access to the city’s top sights, including its soaring cathedral and ancient castle. For a luxury stay in antique-furnished bedrooms with views of the cathedral just outside your window, choose the White Hart Hotel on Bailgate. Or, there’s the comfortable Lincoln Hotel, situated just behind the North Tower of the Roman-built East Gate and offering bright, modern rooms, some with a private balcony or terrace.
For quirky and unique accommodation in Lincoln’s Cathedral Quarter, try the Old Palace on Christ’s Hospital Terrace, steps away from Lincoln Cathedral and directly opposite the medieval Bishop’s Palace. This boutique B&B occupies a converted chapel and has bedrooms brimming with character, featuring stained glass windows, exposed wood beams and Victorian bathroom fittings.
Business travellers looking for some of the best mid-range hotels within a short drive of Lincoln Central train station will find several well-known chains along Brayford Wharf North, a buzzing area near the University of Lincoln. These include the 4-star DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, with fantastic features including a rooftop restaurant, signature bedding and luxury bathroom toiletries. Just nextdoor is the Holiday Inn, with free wifi, meeting rooms and a Starbucks coffee shop.
Families and groups of friends looking for apartments in Lincoln will find them at the 4-star Tennyson Court on South Park, just around the corner from the green expanse of West Common and less than a 10-minute drive west of the city centre. Choose from four serviced apartments sleeping up to six people with wet rooms, modern fittings and with free parking on site.
For good-value hotels in Lincoln, try a small, friendly B&B in a quiet residential area west of the city centre. These include Admiral Guesthouse, tucked away on Nelson Street, with a Victorian-style breakfast parlour and patio garden, and the cheap-but-cheerful Queen In The West on Moor Street, a traditional pub with rooms whose hearty breakfast is legendary among guests.
