Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Norman82 Relaxing stay
The hotel is in a pleasant location.
The reception staff were very helpful and very knowledgeable about the surrounding area, marking the restaurants we were going to on a map to help us locate them.
Sleep score given because mattress was firmer than the one we have at home and was uncomfortable for us.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Shack. Leisure location
Mine was a holiday visit and the hotel location was admirable, convenient for evening promenading and City access.
Lack of quiet public room, noisy/busy bar not suitable for relaxation.
Disappointed with restricted dinner menu but as we were on our own for the first 90 minutes can see the problem.
Nevertheless our stay was enjoyable and we would be happy to stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by don,t have one storage
I found lack of storage a problem, althought there was sufficient hanging space there was a lack of hangers and drawer space was non-existent, quite a problem when staying for a number of nights, not everybody wants to live out of a suitcase, I think this issue should be addressed, especially when the room we had is meant for up to four people, four people and only TWO chairs, would two have to stand?
Not really good enough do you think?

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 a comfortable bed and warm welcome
I have been to holiday inn at Brayford wharf three times and the experience is always a good one, no matter what the weather the welcome is a warm one. Recommended for bad weather and good. The quayside is a good place to kill time if required. the locals are pleasant and welcoming.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Lovely weekend
Very nice hotel in lovely location.The hotel is right on the riverside and very close too many bars/restaurants and high street shops. We went to visit the cathedral and the castle,well worth the climb up steep hill to see the sights,there was a lovely food market and some nice bars and tea rooms.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sammy1212 POOR VALUE FOR MONEY
Unfortunately this has priced itself out of the market. The hotel chain needs to take a look at what it's offering. We were not treated as Priority Club guests.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mickey101 Unacceptable service in bar/restaurant
My stay was spoilt by what I feel is an unacceptable situation. When I went to the bar restaurant for an evening meal, I was told that as they had a large party in that they would not be accepting a food order from me for at least 90mins. As it was 7.30pm already this was obviously not acceptable. There was no warning at reception about this before hand when I checked in, and when I complained to the reception, they were not aware of this situation.
As a business traveller I pick my hotels so I get a certain level of service, as a person staying in any hotel, I do not expect to be told to go out of the hotel to have a meal, because they were to busy that night to be bothered to serve me or any other hotel guest. I do not think in a large hotel a party of 40 people which surely must have given prior notice, should stop other guests having a meal.
It is a pity as the hotel is in a good location and the rooms are to a high standard, so hopefully leasons can be learned and paying guests are not told to go to the pub at the top of the road if you want something to eat, as I was.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Miek11441 Good location, good value...
Good location by the wharf, good pubs and restaurants within walking distance...near the town centre and close to RAF locations (by car).
A little difficult to find the car park, due to pedestrian walking area and associated signs...! Make sure you have the GPS coordinates or the hotel phone number.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great w/end away
This hotel was recommended to us by my parents.
It has an enviable position right on the waterfront and yet only a 5 minute walk to the town.
Checking in was fine, although I would say that more than one member of staff is needed, as there were always queues, but was very friendly and efficient when it was your turn.
Our room on the 3rd floor, No.323, overlooking the water was great apart from the sink in the bathroom which constantly leaked at the base when turned on. The bar staff were friendly also.
As the title says, a great w/end away.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mrs Chris Poor buffet & parking experience
We have stayed with you at this hotel on many occasions but were disappointed this time as the standard was not what we have come to expect. We went down to breakfast after 10am and although the buffet is served to 11am many of the items were missing or had to be requested. The tables were not set properly. The pastries were non existant and the fruit salad tasted more like it had come out of tins rather than fresh and that too was in short supply. The car parking was disappointing due to the Camper Van event at the Marina. This we should have been informed of when we made the booking over the telephone. My husband had to get up very early to move the car on Sun morning into a neighbouring property, which was not convenient as the access & exit were restricted. If we had known this we would have booked at the Holiday Inn Express on the other side of the university which would also have been at a substantially lower rate.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Szikora Great location, friendly staff.
Central location was excellent as we went for a weekend shopping and a family birthday, Hotel was easy to find on sat nav. Own car park is really useful in Lincoln. We were upgraded to a wharfside view on arrival. Room was very clean and all was in good working order.
Didn't use the bar as a bit loud, young and trendy for us, as were other bars in the area. Good pub nearby by the bridge.
Breakfast was OK, could have been warmer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Landnc Lovely City, Good Hotel, Great Location with Great Staff !
Arrived relatively late on Friday 17th January 2014, following a last minute decision to stay in Lincoln. Elfwyn on the reception desk was exceptional. She allocated us an upgraded room with great views over the wharf and quickly addressed all our queries. The following morning we were greeted by friendly & courteous staff both in the breakfast restaurant and on the reception desk upon check-out.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by cc&sc Poor check in
Arrived early Saturday, well around 1 PM. The check in took 30 minutes, trainee doing his best but only him working. We were told both of rooms were not ready, fair enough. Came back about 4:30 and were told again that our rooms were not ready, luckily the cleaners came down in the lift and managed to confirm the rooms were now ready. Pub attached was ok but cold.
Excellent location, uncomfy bed but that's personal choice. Morning check out staff were nice, cant complain except for check in.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DJR02 Poor hotel in need of TLC
We arrived at the Lincoln Holiday Inn Friday Evening, after a long day spent clearing my late Aunt's property nearby. This unpleasant task was made worse by spending the night in room 222 and having to endure unacceptable room conditions. Even with the small wall mounted heater on full the room was extremely cold. The bed had a summer duvet and by 3am neither my partner or I could sleep. We had to then face another day at my aunts house with minimal sleep. Having recently stayed at Holiday Inn Express Hotels in Manchester, whilst attending a conference and Birmingham for the Good Food Show at the NEC, which were both excellent, our experience of Lincoln leaves a lot to be desired. The shower gel was empty in the bathroom and there was still 21st birthday confetti left from the previous occupants. We booked this hotel despite various reviews from Trip Adviser complaining of a similar experiences to our own. It appears little has changed and customer feedback has not been addressed. Compared to the Holiday Inn Express, the original Holiday Inn is now showing it age. This hotel needs a revamp and some TLC. The location is excellent but I now wish we had stayed at the Express out of the town center and paid for a taxi
