Lovely location, although you have to appreciate it is right by the Cathedral so it is not quiet. We were disappointed to find only a queen size bed in the room, we are used to a king size bed at home. Had a complete wet room which was great but as it was for a disabled person this means that all the mirrors etc. are too low when you are not disabled. Breakfast was fresh and well cooked. Garden is very tranquil and we enjoyed a bottle of wine there. This is our first time at the Old Palace and we would stay again, but a double room should have a double bed.

The hotel is in a pefect location for a pleasure trip to Lincoln with great views of the cathedral next door and the surrounding countryside. We had a standard room in the Lodge annex which was very nice. The hotel has been very tastefully decorated and fitted out. We cannot comment on the food as we chose to eat out (plenty of places to choose from nearby). We would definitely come back to the Old Palace again.

The Old Palace combines history with service. I stayed here for several enjoyable days while attending a squadron reunion and was able to explore historic Lincoln as well as investigate the new city, all within walking distance. Once you've located the hotel you can appreciate why eye-catching signage would absolutely destroy its charm. The views south from the breakfast room and north to the Cathedral are spectacular. My single room was very comfortable with TV, ensuite, WiFi, excellent bed, tea/coffee. I hope to visit Lincoln again and The Old Palace will be my accommodation of choice.

I love this Place! The old Bishop Palace isn´t easy to find first, but if you get there you are impressed by the view of the Cathedral or towards the city. Very friendly Staff (I got a complimentary upgrade of the room). Free parking was also a big plus.

This is in a lovely setting. Our room was in "The Lodge", a converted church on the same site, which meant a short walk outside to get there. Our car had to remain parked outside the main building: not ideal. But in all other respects this was a brilliant 4-night stay, with perhaps the best breakfast selection and quality we have ever enjoyed!

The Old Palace came up to our expectations. Only one room was available, which met our requirements. The room (no. 6)was very comfortable but it felt rather cramped and there was not much of a view from the window, which was very small.

Rm 16 needs a security handle to assist in getting into the bath/shower. Finding the hotel was not helped by lack of a notice at the gate saying it was the hotel entrance.

We visited the old palace as a treat to celebrate my partners birthday. The hotel itself was perfect as was the area it is situated in. The staff were very freindly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The view of Lincoln Cathedral from our room was stunning, the bells ringing on a morning were actually lovely, not a problem as some might imagine! The breakfast is fabulous! great choice and freshly cooked, the staff were so freindly at breakfast too. We had a wonderful weekend and the old palace was a big part of making it perfect !
