Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TadX Hotel run to pamper the needs of the guest.
The hotel was busy but well run. Advertisements displayed giving information about services were very helpful and any questions asked of the staff were also very helpful. A good location, only 5 min from the railway station but would not be put off driving to the hotel because it is near the A57 and driving through the city center is avoided..

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by nellie1807 Disappointed / mixed bag
From a personal point of view the stay was marred by inaccessible bathroom facilities for wheelchair user tho' to be fair this is not the only hotel where we have encountered this problem.
Meal choices not great. Breakfast not as good as some well-known chains.
Minor cleanliness issues - dusty window sill, hair in sink plughole.
In a large group, others satisfied so not a total disaster

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NeeNaw Great Staff
Really enjoyed my stay here and key to that was the quality of the staff and their helpful and welcoming attitude.
Rooms are good, modern and clean with good internet access throughout the hotel and a reasonable choice of TV channels.
Cooked breakfast a bit limited in choice(sausage, scrambled egg and beans) if not in quantity, but acceptable and included in the price.
Be aware of the building site next door - not a problem and there was no noisy work going on outside normal site hours during my stay, just a bit unsightly and dusty.

I always enjoy a comfortable stay at Holiday Inn Express. Cosy beds and choice of pillows. Clean bathroom and comfortable bedrooms. A great choice at the breakfast buffet in the mornings. Staff are always welcoming and helpful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Debsie21 Very comfortable and very quiet
We stayed for three nights and found the place to be extremely comfortable and clean. Though construction of university accommodation was taking place next door when windows were shut there was no noise. The staff were very helpful and friendly and doing an excellent job of keeping the place clean. The self service breakfast was very good with plenty of options which suited our needs. The Inn was walking distance to the shops and restaurants. If we come to Lincoln again this is where we will definitely stay again.

Staff went out of their way to arrange a room with twin beds so that we ended up with 2 double beds in the room!
The room was very clean and had everything we needed for a one night stay. the location was brilliant for the University which was the focus of our visit.
Will definitely stay there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kittycat70 Another Good Stay
Stayed again for one night due to son starting at University. Room clean and tidy. Only couple of minor things, lack of beverages in room i.e. only two tea bags, bulb not working in bathroom and no cooked egg at breakfast (just never seemed to be replenished) Apart from that another pleasant stay and am sure to return.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by holidayhunter Short stop
Great little hotel but thought the rooms were very overpriced indeed! I've stayed in other Holiday Inn Express' that have cost no where near as much as this stay. So was very disappointed at the price but needed a hotel to stay in and was somewhat of a 'captive audience' as not many hotels in this area. Was especially dissatisfied as needed two rooms!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bangers Clean and safe but poor dining options
I stayed here as I could not get in at the Holiday Inn in Lincoln. It was within a ten minute walk of the office that I was visiting. The staff were very pleasant and efficient and the check-in experience was good.
The only downside was the choice and quality of food both in the evening and at breakfast. The evening meal seemed to be prepared by the reception staff rather than a chef and was probably microwaved. Disappointing so I would recommend walking into town and eating in one of the many restaurants on Brayford Wharf.

Couldn't fault this Holiday Inn, stayed in a number before and this was one of the best, even when there was a lot of building work going on next door. Staff were very friendly and happy to help, room was very clean and comfortable! For arguments sake the only fault I could say was that the prices were very high even when booking months in advance however this is understandable as we went during a busy time in Lincoln as it was for a graduation. However this wouldn't put us off staying here again! Thank you!

Booked last minute holiday for self and daughter the value couldn't be faulted. The room was very clean comfortable and the airconditioning meant we could regulate the temperature as the daytime weather was quite hot. The staff were very friendly and helpful and when I had accident with coffee tipping over they were speedy with changing bedding and quite unruffled by it. All amenities wer within easy walking distance and we would definitely stay there again.

Stayed here before and the hotel never fails to please. Always helpful and polite staff, own parking and within walking distance for the university and centre of town (about 10-15 mins). Breakfast is a bit of a rush but then I always leave it to the last minute! Highly recommend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nelincsvisitor First impressions count
We visited as a family of four. The purpose of our visit was to bring the 5 year old grandson who didn't know what a hotel was! When booking, i explained this and requested interconnecting rooms. On arriving, we found the reception staff extremely helpful and we were allocated the rooms as requested. The rooms were great, good size, immaculately clean, and everything was as it should be. Beds were extremely comfortable and for the first time ever we had to wake the 5 year old! Breakfast was varied, replenished reguarly which mean there was always enough of everything and hot food was always hot. We checked out spent the day in Lincoln and my grandson was very disappointed not to be going back to the hotel. All in all, the four of us had a great time, we all loved the hotel and will be returning.

This was a hotel booked whilst on a training course.
The expectations were not too high but to be honest when we booked in we were pleasantly surprised.
The rooms were to a high standard, comfortable and suitable for either a business stay or leisure.

A good place to visit Lincoln. My only dissapointment is the price of the car parking. This summer I have spent ten nights in seven differents HI or HI Express hotels in England and I have only paid car parking in two of them.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gill L Good value and friendly staff
Hotel is right next to the University. Luckily for us its summer break so very quiet area despite the building site next door which I understand to be further student accommodation! Bed was a little "roll together" and the breakfast not as good as Chester Express. Only 1 fruit on offer and that was tinned, and in syrup. The coffee machine was switched off after breakfast. If you wanted a drink then you had to order and pay for it. At Chester last year we had free drinks any time of the day, a selection of freshly prepared fruit at breakfast and marmite! The parking was another issue. £5 charge. Free at Chester. We overheard bikers who were going to Cadwell Park like us being charges £6 a day to park their bikes!
On the upside, the hotel was good value and the staff very friendly and helpful. Would stay there again but not when the University is open.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Pat E its Express for a reason
Perhaps we had been spoilt by staying in a Holiday Inn before, we didnt think it being an Express would differ them as much as it did. I had requested an earlier booking in time, I hadn't heard anything so thought it had been arranged.. it hadnt and the staff were not helpful it trying to amend things, also there was no prior communication warning us that there would be a £5 charge each night for carparking, the matress was very soft and offered no support, the first night I slept on the sofa with only a towel to cover me, for a large hotel the breakfast area was small and a totally different experience to our previous stay in Holday Inn, lastly because only one key card is given it meant when I went down for breakfast on my own, when my partner decided to get up and shower he was unable to as there was no card to administer power to lights hairdryer etc, overall very disappointed, but on a positive location to central Lincoln was good

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bsb fan Good overall, couple of glitches
The nicest thing about staying here is the staff, once again they were all friendly, helpful, efficient and willing to go the extra mile. Next best, everything works and is clean and comfortable. Only glitches are - £5 per night parking charge not immediately clear when booking, rubbish sausages and small plates at breakfast, and the fact (NOT Holiday Inn's fault) that there's a student accommodation block being built next door that takes out the only nice view of the cathedral

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Shazzab Nice size room. Good Location
Pleasantly surprised by the comfort and size of our Standard room. The Bathroom was a good size but the pressure of the shower was rather poor.
Breakfast was good but sausages were of a poor quality.
Ideal for 1 or 2 nights stay.
