The Location

One of the best located hotels in Lincoln

The Rest is a wonderful base for your visit to Lincoln. Sitting between Castle, Cathedral and City Centre, its the most central hotel getaway location possible in Lincoln.

The Rest is in the historic Cathedral district of the Bailgate, on Steep Hill, which was awarded Britain's Best Street 2012. Just 100m from the Castle Square where the Cathedral & Castle begin and the Magna Carta is housed. Then just 150m to the shopping district.

If you are visiting for the Universities of Lincoln and Bishop Grosseteste, the hotel is ideally located for both and for graduation venues.

Park the car and leave it. Walk to shops, restaurants, pubs, universities and night life.
