We stopped over for 2 nights and used this as a base for Lincoln Christmas market, splitting the travel. The hotel is marketed as an ex manor house and indeed, when we rolled up into the car park we were impressed, the Christmas lights around the trees and over the frontage were lovely. Car parking is ample, all be it poorly lit away from the main hotel. We checked into the Georgian House, this is an annexe to the side of the main building. There is also free wifi and newspapers in reception. The room size was average and there was a clean modern and functional bathroom sporting both bath and shower. Access is via a push button system and there is a vending machine and computer in the foyer of the annexe. The beds were comfortable and it was a good nights sleep in that respect. The problem with this wing is noise, the hotel is used for weddings and parties, it is noisy as one of the function rooms was 20 yards away and belting out music, so loud I could here the words. I could also hear the people next door. We dined in the hotel dining room the first night, this was great, 4 courses for £21 per head, the food was plenty and well cooked, the desserts a dream, breakfast was continental plus a choice of either full cooked, omelette, salmon, smoked haddock etc and was superb. The restaurant is well presented and has a disabled toilet by it. There is always a down side, the downside was the wifi, if you stopped on business and needed this for work, it isn't reliable enough. On the second day, we went to the restaurant, only to find the hotel had booked 2 coaches in for a meal and residents couldn't dine until 8.30pm, there was no forewarning. We dined in the bar, whilst this was OK it was just pub grub and nothing to write home about. In all, it has loads of potential, the staff are great but the noise lets it down, it is great for disabled people as it is level in the main. We were just a bit disappointed about being put to the back of the line when it came to coach parties.
