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…


  • A very big thank you for a lovely buffet to celebrate my 80th birthday.  The attention we received from your staff was marvellous.  They are always so welcoming and friendly, the buffet was fabulous and the venue, as always, was perfect.  All our guests were full of praise for everything.  Thank you for making my special birthday so memorable.

  • This place really is a hidden gem. The hotel is beautiful, the staff are lovely and the food.. well, on Friday 5th May for my birthday, the best food we have EVER had was served, utterly stunning, service charming, can not praise it enough. Nothing ever seems to be too much trouble for the whole team at Washingborough Hall. Fabulous function room and private dinning areas for smaller events, they seem to have covered all possibilities and requirements. Well done, we will be back....yum!

Fabulous hotel
  • This was our second visit to this fabulous hotel. If you want comfort, superb food and excellent service then look no further than this hotel. After a long days sightseeing and shopping warm scones and tea in the lounge Nothing is too much trouble for the owner or the staff. When the taxi we had pre ordered prior to our stay cancelled 5 minutes before we were due to be collected,and with no other taxi available, the owner stepped in and drove us himself to where we needed to be.

Attentive, friendly staff
  • We are fairly frequent visitors to Washy Hall as our daughter is studying at Lincoln University and during our visits over the past few years we have found little to fault. Attentive, friendly staff, wonderful food, beds that seem to hug you to sleep and an all-round ‘cosseting’ atmosphere that ensures you relax from the moment you set foot over the threshold.

  • We both had a fantastic time.  The staff, the food, our room and everything had exceeded our expectations by far. Thanks for making our first anniversary special.
