Positive Reviews

Exceptional hotel

The Rest a luxury boutique hotel in the Cathedral Quarter of Lincoln is a charmingly converted church hall; an intimate hotel with just ten rooms. The spotless rooms and bathrooms, tasteful décor, luxurious bed linen, underfloor heating and very comfortable beds means that the hotel has overwhelmingly positive guest reviews.

Terrific location

The hotel's location between Lincoln cathedral and Lincoln palace makes it ideal for sightseeing, visiting the local universities as well as for organising intimate events such as wedding ceremonies or special anniversaries. There are beautiful views of the cathedral and pubs close by for guests looking to have a drink or a meal.

Excellent service

The hotel offers service with a smile, say more guest reviews. The staff is attentive, efficient and polite, said guests. The breakfast offered is full English and cooked to order; described as excellent in taste and quality.

Negative Reviews

Parking at a bit of a distance

Parking is available at a car park about 100 metres from the hotel. Parking is paid but the 24 hour car park passes are quite reasonable.

In the middle of Steep Hill

The Rest is located in Steep Hill which could pose a problem to those with a problem walking and climbing. One or two guests thought the hotel was a little difficult to find.

Can get hot and noisy

The old building means that noises from upper floors can be heard. Also on Tuesdays (students' night) sounds of revelry from the street carry into rooms. The rooms without windows can get very hot particularly when the under floor heating is on.
