Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by London48 Generally Good but Breakfast Poor
Everything in the hotel was good but the breakfast was poor. The sausages were only warm, the scrambled egg was rubbery and tasteless plus it would be good to have warm plates to put it on. Nothing wrong with the cerials or fruit but I didn't drink the coffee as it was aweful. I don't think I have ever thrown a cup of coffee away before but I did with this one. Staff helpful, room was clean but I was surprised to see a cigarette butt on the floor in the seating area near Reception. May stay again but would have breakfast somewhere else. Sorry but that's it.

I do wish this hotel would get rid of the coconut toiletries! I hate coconut. I was told it was the brand that will not change it but there are other fragrances in the other HiExpress Hotels I have stayed in.
The last time I stayed here I got free parking as a Platinum Member, but not this time. My bill was in two halves as I was first charged another rooms price and then when the mistake noticed I had another charge so have two receipts.
I was a bit disappointed this time but it usually lives up to the HiExpress brand

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sam2186 Just what I was after.....
Modern, trendy, clean and easy to find hotel in a great location for Lincoln City Centre. Didn't get woken up by any traffic noise, parking was £5 for 24hrs which is more than reasonable compared to other car parks in Lincoln and furthermore we didn't have to check out until 12. Didn't sample breakfast as we went up the road for a full english, but the restaurant seemed busy ! No complaints and would recommend to others !

"We stopped over night whilst visiting the City with the Green Army and everything went very smoothly. The booking process was simple and straight forward. We were arriving by train and it was about a 10 minute walk from the station. We had requested that we drop an overnight bag off before going to the game and on arrival just after mid-day found not only was there a baggage room available but also that our room was ready and we were able to check in immediately which was a pleasant surprise and the fine service continued throughout. The room and the bathroom was clean, spacious enough for our needs and although the water pressure in the shower was not the greatest we had no real complaints with it. We found the location,although not the most scenic again ideal for our needs.It is a few minutes from the High Street so close enough to the various shops and bars but far enough away so as not to suffer from too detrimentally from noise disturbance. After a good nights sleep the breakfast in the morning was self-service with plenty of variety and was basically unlimited . We appreciate that this is part of a chain so perhaps did not have too high of expectations for originality but that said we had a very enjoyable and peaceful stay with comfy beds and attentive stay at a reasonable price. We certainly hope to stay here again sooner rather than later."

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DakoLobot Excellent Reception Staff
"You expect that members of hotel chains will provide a common standard across the chain; you do not expect that a particular hotel will so comfortably exceed the norm.
Location is brilliant for visiting offspring at University.
Check-in staff friendly, helpful and cheerful.
Room comfortable, clean and well-equipped (I liked the firm bed and pillow).
Breakfast room busy (9:30 on a Sunday) but we were found space. Breakfast was delicious, all the buffet selection was constantly refilled.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will only stay here for our future visits to Lincoln."

I would highly recommend this hotel in Lincoln. The staff at check in we're great, bar staff friendly. The room was clean and beds comfortable. It was a quiet room considering the hotel is near a busy road. Breakfast was great. Would recommend.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AB60 Comfortable and good value
I stay at the HIE in Lincoln almost every week - the staff are consistently helpful and polite and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The free wifi for gold members is an added benefit, as is the free drink with dinner on each stay.
Minor grumbles are:
the menu could change more often and some of the dishes (especially the beef burger) are not great
the breakfast menu is very limited and a bit tasteless - the addition of bacon to the hot breakfast, better quality sausages and less flabby croissant would improve things a lot .

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ros10 Comfortable and welcoming
Staff always pleasant and smiling, even late at night. Beds springy and very comfortable; shower-room fine and enough hanging space for a short break. Breakfast unhurried and as a buffet, could return for that extra coffee if required!
Location, across many busy multiple lane highways from the city centre & station, rather daunting despite crossing signals.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Wonderful Bed and 5 Star Service
Excellent quality of service, stayed here many times over the years and still gives consistent 5 star ratings from all us, even though the Double room with sofa bed for three adults was a bit squashed.. But very clean! Will stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by happy84 one night
To usual Express high standards. Quiet room on the top floor. A short walk to the city centre and Brayford Pool area. Got a little confused by Express map which i thought located the hotel in a different location though written instructions were correct. Like breakfasts but always arrive early to avoid rush. Hot food isnt always appealing but rest good. Did have a problem with booking where I ended up with two reservations when I only wanted one. Did speak to hotel before arrival and they said it would be sorted but it wasnt. Acting manager issued credit so no problem

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Barbary Must do better with evening meals
The choice of meals on the menu appears impressive but the sad truth is that the meals are essentially pre-packed frozen microwave meals with very little actually cooking at the hotel.
For the prices charged you expect more, both in terms of quantity or quality but you get neither. A 50% increase in quantity might go some way towards making one feel better about the lack of quality.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rm46 Excellent room, loads of parking, great staff, breakfast slight let down
Room far better than I expected and much better than recent stays at much dearer hotels, great efficient and friendly service from staff. Not so impressed with breakfast - croissants seemed to be yesterday's. But overall great value for money

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mart21 Superb hotel in a great location!
My partner and I stayed at Holiday Inn Express Lincoln for a Friday & Saturday night and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The hotel is very modern and therefore all the rooms & public areas are immaculate. We were in a room on the top floor so had a very quiet & relaxing stay, the breakfast was excellent taking into account it is included in the room price. Sunday morning was very busy in the breakfast room but we still managed to get a table and the breakfast items were topped up regularly.
Overall we would both highly recommend this hotel and we shall definitely return again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Timho This was poor
I rarely use the Holiday Inn brand.
My wife and I were really disappointed in what this hotel offered.
The setting of the hotel is almost unfortunate. It id sandwiched between Morrisons and MacDonalds - and its stark modernism does nothing to say 'relax'! The welcome and work of staff was quite good. They quickly made up the number of tea and coffee sachets in our room and supplied cinema data. But it was a struggle to compensate for a smallish double room (did they really have singles in mind when these were designed?) But the worst thing of all was the breakfast - it was gloopy egg with bad tasting sausages. Little choice was on offer - a vegan or vegetarian might panic.
The overall feel was of a university hall of residence with smiley staff.
Get real on car parking charges too - but better still would be to go elsewhere in Lincoln where much better value for money is to be found.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Noels Relaxing stay at Holiday Inn Express
I stayed at HIX for 1 night on 30th September 2013. My room was very clean with a comfortable bed. The AC was on when I first entered the room which I found was a little cold but once I turned off the AC the room was a more comfortable temperature.
Breakfast was a little disappointing. I'm a vegetarian so would like to have seen more variety with the hot breakfasts i.e. tomatoes, mushrooms, porridge, and fresh fruit salad.
Otherwise my stay was very comfortable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DeeJ81 Comfy bed and room
Enjoyed my stay but unfortunately the hot water failed and I was unable to shower the morning I was checking out.
The staff did offer the use of another room but I did not have time to make use of this offer. It was just an unfortunate even which does not reflect the quality of the hotel. I will definitely stay here again.
The bed was very comfortable and The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Blackie111 Good Hotel BUT why pay for parking?
This is a good hotel from a comfort aspect BUT it is bad enough having to pay for hotel parking (holiday inn york do not charge).but at least last year we got a discount for being priority club members, this year I assumed it would be the same but the rather surly receptionist said no. This is hardly a city centre location. Check out receptionist was cheerful and polite. Breakfast is OK but would be great if there was bacon as well as or instead of sausage. Would have given 5 stars if bacon present. The sausage quality is not great and cheap bacon tastes much nicer than cheap sausage! Once in a chair with arms in restaurant impossible to get out if back to back with someone on next table, perhaps a bit too close together? Still a nice place to stay though!
