Is The Rest suitable for young children or the less able

The Rest is located on Steep Hill which is a beautiful award winning cobbled street, but it does live up to its name and may be difficult for people with health problems. There are also steps to access most rooms and may pose difficulty for you if you have very young children or have difficulties with mobility. If you are at all unsure please contact us.

Do you have Parking at The Rest? 

We are located on a narrow cobbled street which is restricted to traffic which means the hotel enjoys a quiet and privileged location in Lincoln's old Bailgate. The majority of hotels use the car parks located very nearby, both above and below the hotel. We have a special arrangement to use any of these car parks, which you can book directly with us. Buy a 24 hour pass and leave your car whilst you enjoy all that Lincoln has to offer.

Extended stay 24 hour passes are from 15:00 pm to 15:00 pm for just £5. Please add when booking or ask and collect at reception.

You can drive past and drop off your bags outside and park as near as 150m away. Please collect your parking pass before parking.
