    Superb

    We loved the location and our room which was exactly as we requested, Lincoln Cathedral was right outside our window and looked spectacular lit up at night. Fabulous breakfast with friendly and helpful staff.

    Lack of parking - there are not enough spaces in the grounds if the hotel is busy. Also no checks that we could see on unauthorised cars. We parked on grass by the ruins as other cars were already there. On our return there was a note under our wipers to ask us not to park there as it was not part of the hotel facility. There were no signs to that effect. Not a major grumble though, the pluses of the Old Palace overwhelmed this minor problem. It would not stop us staying there again.

    Enjoyed the experience. Receptionist (called Kate) was extremely helpful, organised taxi's for my colleague, nothing was too much trouble for her. Breakfast staff were welcoming, very friendly and efficient. Great location for "Steep Hill" and its hostelries. A lovely place overall.

    Very difficult to find in the dark! The lack of a proper bar although they are licensed to serve drinks.

    Loved the location and the history. Staff were friendly and welcoming.

    As the lodge was 'outside' the main building, we got a bit damp going over to the main building for breakfast. Perhaps umbrella's for guest use in the lodge drawing room would be helpful

    Very good

    The location was fantastic and the reception staff very friendly and helpful.

    The dining room was chaotic and supervisor panicked and in appropriately reprimanded staff in public.

    We stayed for one night during the Lincoln Christmas market. The staff were very helpful and friendly and made us feel very welcome. The location is fabulous - great views across the city, very close to the most historic buildings (and the Christmas market), but secluded and private. It was a very special place to stay and especially nice as it has only opened relatively recently. It was a particular bonus that we were able to enjoy a lovely dinner in the "pop up" restaurant. We loved it!

    Nothing!

    Fabulous

    A very relaxed atmosphere, the staff are really good. Room small but clean and warm, breakfasts excellent. The position of The Old Palace in Lincoln could not be bettered, next to the cathedral and close to nice shops and restaurants.

    Fabulous

    The hotel is full of character, pleasant surroundings, great people and a good menu selection for breakfast. All produce well cooked sourced locally and with perfect poached eggs. The service was excellent. The bathroom was well appointed and the towels were soft.

    The only criticism is with the bed. The mattress was too hard for us and I personally didn't sleep well at all, in fact I ended up with a painful neck for all of the next two days. The room could have been a little warmer. (Picky?)
