Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mindiemoe clean and friendly
We found that the pillows were not what they said on the tags as the soft ones were just as firm as the firm ones. There was not much choice of a full English only sausages, scrambled egg and beans. The staff were friendly so we did not like to complain as I guess it is standard within the company.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Holiday Inn Express Stay
Overall can't really complain. The room is nice enough, but the air con is too cold and so you have to open a window and then it's too loud.
Breakfast is very basic and not great quality, but is fine and acceptable for a budget hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jimsomniac Excellent night in a very clean hotel
This was perhaps my nicest hotel stay in 2014. I travel regularly from Stockholm to the UK, and this hotel was very, very clean. The facilities were modern and clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
The breakfast selection and organisation was quite poor, but this would be my only real complaint.

Room clean tidy, bed comfortable, no complaint at all although breakfast it would have been a little bacon of eggs something other than scrambled?

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Clawfinger good place to stay
Food: like the new menu particularly the portobello chicken and mushroom
However the mugs plates and dishes are not clean. I can feel something on them like grains of sand. I take water from the hot drinks machine and wipe them over and then pour the water into tray underneath the machine.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Paraman Good city center location
The hotel is located close enough to the city centre that means you can leave the car there and walk into town. Just as well as it will cost £5 a day to park. I find this odd as I feel hotel guests should get to park for free.
The Breakfast is a bit lack-lustre. They have scrambled egg that is based on a powder, just add milk. As a result it would work well for use as cement or mortar. Not sure why there is no bacon. The hot food is baked beans, sausages (again poor quaility) and the scrambled egg.
Hotel Wifi uses a long character string that must be entered in each day. So if staying for several days do not loose the sheet of paper. They limit you to 2 devices on the free system. This seems odd but I suppose it should help to keep the speed fast. It is not exactly fast anyway so reducing devices on the system is a must.

Lovely hotel but sound proofing facing road inadequate. Lots of road noise at front of hotel. Suggest ask for quiet room if bothered by this. Breakfast good staff very good.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rich96 Nice
My stay was almost a week in duration. I'm not completely fair in my assessment because I measure Holiday Inn Express from a USA pespective which isn't fair to the UK folks. The stay was adequate--things were very condenced in the room (small). No real closet or dresser drawer (only one drawer). The bed was as comfortable as anywhere I've ever stayed in throughout my travels around the world. The staff were excellent by any measure! I had cereal for breakfast because most things were out by the time I got to breakfast. Only a shower in the bathroom--normally for me this is no big deal because I'm a shower person. However this trip I needed a bathtub and there were none at this hotel. There was construction on going which takes away from the outside personna--I'm sure things will be nice when they are complete. I would stay again--however not my first choice at this location.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TheDon1 Comfortable, clean and within walking distance of city
Ideal for a city break, clean, comfortable and lovely friendly staff. Would definitely stay here again. Lincoln itself is a lovely place to visit and the hotel was in easy walking distance, approx 10 mins to main area. Only downside was bar was a bit pricey for a nightcap!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TiredWalker Wonderful staff, pity about the price
Lincoln does not have much choice in hotels or eating. HIExpress makes it harder by picking a location with no food and no access to anything else except by taxi or serious trek. That said, the hotel was OK, but not worth what we paid. Staff could not have done more, but they are working with poor materials.

The only downside is that access to hotel car park is poor as there are building works on the corner, the hotel is very visible from the drivers seat, but if you miss the turning it is a long diversion to reach hotel proper

Members of my family and I have just spent a great weekend at this lovely hotel.The staff were very friendly and welcoming making you feel relaxed immediately on arrival.All our rooms were spotless with soft towels in bathroom which in my experience is not always the case.I had a small problem with the shower head which was fixed within 5 minutes even though it was late afternoon Saturday.At breakfast and dinner there is a good choice and the food is excellent.The hotel was busy as a huge amount of air crews who were taking part in the Waddington air show were staying yet the staff were on hand to help with anything ie taking a family photo for us.I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend the hotel and it's staff.

An excellent hotel that I always use when visiting Lincoln. Shops and theatres nearby. I put average for sleep quality as I do not sleep well wherever I am.
I wish they would change the fragrance of toiletries - I hate coconut!
I would like the breakfast hours to be longer.
I'm always recognised whenever I go back and this makes me happy.
A favourite hotel

This particular hotel is immaculately clean with friendly staff who do aim to please.
Comfortable bedroom with adequate facilities, especially for the business traveller.
Improved the menu which does seem a little on the pricey side for what it is but the standard of cooking is good.

Chose Lincoln Holiday Inn Express as have stayed before, it is very convenient for all that Lincoln has to offer, a short walk over the canal to restaurants and pubs and you can easily walk to the Cathedral and Castle ( up the hill, still manage it at 70) and all of the High Street shops.
When I am in Lincoln again I will always use the Holiday Inn Express I believe it represents excellent value for money and has a welcoming atmosphere, nothing was to much trouble for the staff

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Penny Pincher Good servive
I would recommend this hotel, it is clean and modern and the staff are great.
Breakfast was good, would suggest provision of trays to be helpful. Other Holiday Inns we have stayed in have provided them?
No problem with parking and yes there is a £5.00 charge which is reasonable, for keeping your car safe.
Lovely view of the Cathedral from the window by the lift. Our room looked out on the car park and was very quiet.
I found the mattress a little uncomfortable and the pillows not great. I would take my own pillow next time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pete78 Really nice hotel
We are a small family and really enjoyed our stay. Staff were really nice, and the rooms were up to a high standard. Breakfast was great with a good variety of things to choose from. The hotel is just ten minutes walk from town, although you're not in the middle of things, getting to other restaurants, shops and the city is easy enough. Just a 10 minute walk over some cross roads.
