Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DSP50 Loud big building
There is a huge building being constructed next door. Their work starts at 0630 and it is noisy. My room was right above their worksite.
The road to the hotel is shared by the construction site, and is very hard to find unless you've been there before as there is no signage indicating the hotel drive.
The internet is very slowwwww
The rooms are very small, with no suitcase valet in the room.
The air conditioning system kept the room very hot, and uncomfortable.
There are no restauruants withing walking distance of under a mile.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Freddie 67 Convenient location
Having stayed at this hotel on numerous occasions, we were surprised to see the building work going on beside it - new rooms for students at the local university. The view of the cathedral and castle from the area outside the lifts is completely obliterated by the new building. This was a disappointment outside your control.
Will there be parking problems once the students occupy their building? Parking spaces are already quite narrow, and a challenge for my wife who suffers from arthritis.(I block the road whilst she gets out before parking.)
The service provided by the staff was good and the room comfortable but seating in the room was limited.
Range of evening meals was fine, if a little pricey for what they were.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by for get it It did what was required
Overall the hotel was average, our draw back was the food offered in the evening, it was overpriced for warmed up food. HENCE WE ONLY ATE THE ONCE.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Abergirl Very business like
Holiday Inn Express lived up to expectations from previous visits; business like and efficient.
The only criticism is the bathroom, which smelled faintly of urine and could have done with a deep clean around the WC area.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Arabicatheart Poor mattress and faulty kettle but Customer service/ staff were great
Good location. Only 5 mins walk to the very busy Brayford Wharf and plenty of bars and eateries. 10-15 mins walk up Steep Hill to the Castle/Cathedral area. The reception staff at Holiday Inn Express, were great. Extremely knowledgeable, friendly, approachable and extremely quick at serving in the bar area as well as reception. The only faults were a faulty kettle that should have been picked up before the room was booked out again and a dreadfully poor quality mattress. Rolled into the middle, raised ribbed area around the edge was really painful when trying to get out of bed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Norfolk Seagull Another Pleasant Stay
This hotel is in an ideal situation for visiting Lincoln city centre. It is close to the University and near to Brayford Pool where there is a variety of restaurants. We have enjoyed many weekends at the hotel and the level of service, comfort value has remained at the highest. The only downside is that a huge building has been erected close to the hotel which overshadows it and building was still going on whilst we were there. However that does not reflect on the high standards of the hotel.
