Guest Reviews

What people say

Over the years we have worked hard to create a country house hotel that’s intimate, relaxing and welcoming. Intimate in design and size, relaxing in ambience and surroundings, and welcoming because, well, that’s just the way we do things.

We invite all our guests to leave a review, here’s a small selection of our Lincoln hotel reviews…

Superb Sunday Lunch

When we arrived we were ushered to a table in the bar and were allowed to make select our menu choices at leisure. The table in the dining room was spacious and service was excellent. I had the roast beef which was delicious. I will definately return.

Fantastic Sunday Lunch

Went with my wife and another couple for Sunday lunch having previously visited and been impressed then. I have to say the standards are still very high and food and service first class. Special mention to the chefs as the food was some of the best I have tasted. Cannot wait to book again and will be back next year for my daughters wedding.

Beautiful Surroundings and Lovely Afternoon Tea

We had a great visit today, my husbands work colleagues had treated us to afternoon tea for his 50th birthday, it was just lovely, soft relaxing music playing in the background and the food was delicious.

A very good place to stay

We did a bargain break here which included 2 nights bed, breakfast and diner, as well as transport to, and a free entry into Lincoln Cathedral

Our room was absolutely super, as was the bathroom and the four poster bed.

Breakfast was excellent, as was diner each evening. Drinks were not expensive and the ambience of the hotel was lovely. The staff were very helpful., We would willingly stay again.

Great Hotel!

The hotel is welcoming and relaxing with helpful staff both professional and friendly. My room had a very comfortable bed and a luxurious bathroom which was squeaky clean.

Lunch and dinner were outstanding; a varied seasonal menu using locally sourced produce and vegetables cooked to perfection; desserts to die for and a great selection of cheeses. Breakfast for me included home made granola, fruit salad and pastries which were delicious.Great for those of us who skip the full English although it did look very appetising.

I particularly appreciated the attention to detail such as the fabulous home made bread and lovely extra touches such as chocolates, fudge and Turkish delight.

Lucy and Edward are superb hosts and worked incredibly hard to ensure my stay was a truly memorable one for all the very best reasons!

Charming in every way

A quite splendid stay and we could not have wished for more. Friendly and efficient staff, delightful surroundings and excellent bar and dining facilities. We are sorry that we do not have an excuse to return. We loved every aspect and it is but a short drive to Lincoln City and its magnificent Cathedral.

Fabulous - four star establishment.

The Washingborough was a fantastic treat and completely different to the regular chain hotels. This boasts antique furnishings, interesting paintings and quirky sitting areas. We just loved our stay and every single member of staff went out of their way to make it enjoyable. Big thanks to all.

Amazing!

We couldn't have wished for a better venue and Amy the director of romance made sure everything went smoothly.. nothing was too much trouble. She offered advice on suppliers, got back to our endless emails and hundreds of questions! Everyone commented on how wonderful the food was and the staff were extremely attentive. We had exclusive use of the venue and all our guests commented on the rooms and how gorgeous the grounds were. We can't wait to visit again x

Washy Hall is just outstanding!

Washingborough Hall was our dream wedding venue, and everyone went above and beyond to ensure everything was perfect! We had full exclusivity of the venue meaning we got the top standard service from start to finish and Amy is outstanding at her job, she is an absolute credit to the hotel. We had the best days of our life and i would pay it all again to experience the same day. All of our guests were commenting on how amazing the food was too, we will be back for a meal just to relive the culinary experience. We cannot thank the staff enough for the care and love they all put into their jobs, even mopping the floor multiple times during our rather zealous disco dancing, they looked happy to be there! If anyone is looking to book their wedding here, just do it, dont ask questions its by far the best venue for the job, trust us! Overall Washy Hall is just outstanding!

Just book it - you honestly wont regret it!

We had our wedding weekend at Washingborough Hall, with a family meal on the Friday and wedding on the Saturday - everything was perfect. From the minute we booked Washingborough 2 years prior, Amy was on hand to help with anything, calming my nerves and guiding us through every step - Amy is an absolute star and made the wedding planning as smooth as possible. The staff at Washingborough are so welcoming & polite and were absolutely amazing on the day. The attention to detail at Washingborough is perfect and no ask is too big for the staff. The food was fantastic and all our guests were commenting about the food, staff & exclusivity of the venue. If you are currently considering Washingborough Hall as a venue, just book it - you honestly wont regret it. It was the most perfect day & we cant wait to visit for our anniversaries. Thank you Washingborough Hall for making our dreams come true. Love, The Colemans x
