Exceptional 10.0
This is a lovely place to stay. Don't be put off by the 'shared bathroom': it was one between two rooms and no-one in the other room. The four-poster room was a good size and nice furniture. There was an 'honesty box' bar, and the staff were nice. If you get the 'wait and ride' bus (until 5pm) from the corner of High and Silver St at the bottom of the hill, it stops about 20 yards from the front door on the flat at the top. I would happily stay here again.

A star - but not as bright as it was...
Location (at top of hill near Cathedral) is perfect; the street itself very historic. The hotel was a Michelin-guide entry for 2007/8/9... and then, seemingly, the clock stopped! It is still a lovely Georgian building, but fittings/furnishing need tlc - but our bathroom was very new. The lounge with its honesty-bar, and help-yourself soft drinks/snacks was excellent. The lower prices here reflect its current status, but it is still charming.

Perfect for visiting Lincoln
Lovely helpful reception, accommodation was tired but comfortable, and perfectly located for visiting Lincoln. Excellent breakfast just up the road. Would definitely chose the Bail House again.

Bail House
The main lobby and lounge of the hotel were lovely. The room I rented was large enough, bedding nice and clean but the decor was tatty and in desperate need of updating. The shower curtain was a bit moldy and made the place smell a bit fusty.
