The Tennyson, Lincoln
This is now self service
AFTER we booked, but BEFORE we arrived, this location was sold, and became a "self-service" B&B. There was no one there to help us, no one to give us directions, the password for the internet was almost impossible to find, and the "food" available for us at breakfast was unsatisfactory. We were provided with a telephone number to call for assistance, but no telephone. We are from the U.S. and do not own a smart phone. We were simply cast adrift with no help. We knew only 24 hours before our arrival at the Tennyson about this change. By then it was too late to cancel. WE NEVER WOULD HAVE STAYED HERE HAD WE KNOWN OF THIS NEW ARRANGEMENT.

Great B & B in Lincoln
Fanastic B&B at an extremely reasonable rate. Extremely well appointed room and bathroom with very comfortable bed and all of the right little touches (such as a full sewing kit, electrical converters, flashlight, lotions, fresh fruit, teas and snacks that were available all day). The neighborhood is fine and conveniently located. The inn is run by Agna, who is outstanding. We got there late and could not find a restaurant that was open, so she got up and made us a pot of fresh tea to eat with our dinner of cheese and crackers. She is a terrific cook, and the omelettes she made for breakfast were delicious. You will love this place. We did.

Pleasantly Surprised at Quality
Last minute booking (same day) so assumed there would be problems. However, phone number provided on email was answered promptly. Hotel has no staff on site, however, information that was given assisted greatly. The dining/ kitchen area is small, but there are only a few rooms so more than adequate, my booking was for B&B, which basically is help yourself, with more than enough choice

Very Good8.0
Good location and reasonable price.
Been before, will stay again. Clean, comfortable, convenient for where I need to be. This place used to be fabulous, now just good under new ownership. DIY breakfast etc - nil human contact.

Nice stay
Wasn't sure what this stay was going to turn out like after I received an email to say it wasn't manned but I shouldn't of worried as everything went to plan and had a great stay . There is some parking but if you have a larger vehicle you might struggle but there's plenty on street parking on a road close by . 30 mins flat walk into the centre of Lincoln
