Best place to stay in Lincoln

Okay so we may be a little biased, but based on customer feedback on TripAdvisor, the Telegraph and Times reviews, The Rest is one of the best places to stay in Lincoln, excellent value for money and constantly rated as the friendliest service and cleanest rooms of any hotel in Lincoln.

Work or leisure or visiting Lincoln Castle, Cathedral or the University of Lincoln, The Rest is THE most central location and in the beautiful Bailgate area where cobbled roads, boutique shops and independent pubs and restaurants are located. A short walk brings you to the hub of the high street and the recognisable brands for shops, bars and food.

We believe that The Rest is the best place to stay, but don’t take our word for it, our guests think so too. Our guests rate us at 9.6 overall on and one of the highest rated hotels in Lincoln.


Great location

The most central accommodation in Lincoln between the Cathedral, Castle and City. Perfect for sightseeing, visiting the universities or staying somewhere a little different for work.

All rooms have outside private individual entrances, to come and go as you please but with the benefit of a team on hand for the all important breakfast and anything else you may need.
