The Holiday Inn Express Lincoln City Centre combines a convenient location with good value. Stay close to all the attractions of central Lincoln, with free wireless Internet throughout and a breakfast buffet included in the rate.
Situated on the Brayford Wharf with beautiful views of the marina or Cathedral, the Holiday Inn Lincoln is an ideal base for everything this beautiful city has to offer. The hotel is in the heart of Lincoln and surrounded by history, shopping and agricultural areas. A great place to stay for families as well as being close to many major business parks and many local companies.
We booked at a couple of hours notice due to visiting a severely ill family member, who subsequently died before reaching the hotel - the staff handled us brilliantly during the booking and through[More]
the check in process and this treatment continued throughout the stay; they are absolute starts and a credit to the hotel.
The hotel itself is comfortable and clean throughout, with the guest room being spacious, clean and comfortable. All facilities worked and the bathroom had enough water pressure in the shower for me to raise the head high enough (I'm 2m tall); this is very rare in hotels ! There was no bath, only a shower, which wasn't a problem for us, but may be for some. The noise levels were low and blackout curtains fitted helping us sleep. There are plenty of power sockets which allowed us to charge a multitude of devices at the same time.
Breakfast, though slightly limited in what it provided compared to some hotels was of higher quality than those, which more than made up for the slightly reduced choice and was available over a long period so we never felt rushed. The food at breakfast was of a high quality.
As we booked at effectively zero notice we didn't expect a low rate and weren't surprised when we had to pay quite a bit more than the advance rates. Our only negative point is that the "on the spot" rate is quite high for what is seen as a budget hotel; having said that, it wasn't excessive and the treatment we received was exemplary so this is a very minor criticism.
All in all I would very highly recommend this hotel. [Less]
