"Fantastic period property, ideal location, easily accomodated 11 people"
We hired St Hilda's for the week prior to our daughters wedding at Charlotte House. Our party was family with ages ranging from 2 years to 59 years so the five bedrooms suited us perfectly. The rooms are large, bright and warm with furniture to suit the period of the property, and extremely comfortable beds. The children's playroom is a wonder world for children of all ages, well stocked with a variety of toys and equipment (high chair, travel cot, changing mat). Kitchen also has ample plates, cups, pans etc for all 11 people, it is a lovely big room and you do not feel on top of each other when every one is present in the kitchen. The lounge and dining /drawing room are well proportioned with sufficient seating for all occupants. We used the dining/drawing room for the morning of the wedding....hair and makeup, getting dressed in bridal finery.....made for beautiful pictures as did posing on the stairs and leaving through the front hall way that has original decorative tiles....Three parking permits were provided and made parking outside easy. The proprietor Jamie answered all my numerous questions promptly and was very helpful....I have mobility problems/ disabilty which in now way hindered our stay at this property but if in a wheelchair or unable to use stairs this would not be suitable..I would recommend this property without hesitation
Many thanks for the review. I'm really pleased you had a great stay and it was well suited for your wedding party - I hope the photos turn out well! I agree that the stairs are worth mentioning, they are quite steep leading up to the house so may not be well suited to everyone's needs and requirements. Best regards, Jamie

"Gorgeous house in a great location"
We stayed in a well maintained characterful house over Lincoln's busy Christmas market weekend. It was great in many respects - spacious accommodation and an excellent location for getting to all the Lincoln highlights while being placed on a quiet residential street - plus some lovely views.
Many thanks! I'm glad you had a great stay. Best regards, Jamie

"Exactly what we needed"
My family and I stayed here for the weekend, due to my brother's wedding. I found the owner Jamie very helpful and kind to deal with. The house is huge and really beautiful with some lovely ori… More
Many thanks for the review. I'm glad you had a great stay and I appreciate your constructive comments about installing additional facilities. I think it would be difficult to install a third toilet in the suggested location, but it should be fine to install another shower in the bathroom in addition to the separate en-suite shower. I am currently getting some building quotes and I will update the main webpage information once I have made some progress in these regards. Many thanks again, Jamie

"It really is as old as the pictures!"
We stayed as a group at this property as we were working at an exhibition. The property is very old and shortly after our arrival the downstairs toilet blocked. As we were working form 6am -8pm daily and only using the house to sleep and shower we used the upstairs toilet. There was no meet and greet at the property although a contact number was left.
A couple of guys were the only ones left the last couple of days and left breakfast dishes. The owner decided that we couldn't have our £150 deposit back as the toilet was blocked and the cleaner had to wash some dishes.
I apologised regarding the dishes and told him to take money for the cleaners time. He demanded the £150 after a lot of emails and a waste of my time I could only get £75 back. As far as i'm concerned this is wear and tear and the landlords responsibility to keep the drains clear.
Unless you want to stay in a Time Warp of the 1950S and pay towards the up keep of his old house steer clear.
Hi, thanks for posting your review. Yes it is true that St Hilda's is an old and characterful property, it dates back to the 1890s, as does some of the furniture and fittings. I have also recently refurbished and decorated the house in keeping with the age and character of the property for the most part, there are new carpets throughout, a newly installed downstairs toilet, broadband wireless internet and a new LED integrated TV/DVD. As you point out one of the bedrooms does have some retro 1950s Italian style furniture, though of course I can understand why this wouldn't be to everyone's personal taste. The feedback that I've had so far from other guests both on Tripadvisor and in our guestbook is that they have generally really liked the house. On the matter of the deposit it's regrettably true that the workmen from your company left the kitchen in a mess when they left and also true that the new toilet was blocked during your stay. It's also true that I tried to resolve the matter with you amicably several times. What you fail to mention is that the new toilet was blocked due to someone carelessly putting kitchen roll down the toilet during your stay instead of the toilet paper provided. You also fail to mention that you made no effort to let me know about the blockage. I think that under the circumstances £75 was a reasonable deduction from the deposit to contribute to the extra costs generated. I do provide contact numbers so guests can get in touch easily should any problems arise. I also welcome constructive feedback on how I can make guest stays more enjoyable. Many thanks, Jamie

We all had a fantastic stay at St Hilda's. It is in an excellent central location within easy walking distance of Lincoln's Castle and Cathedral. There are many amenities nearby. The house is very characterful, spacious and peaceful. The owner was very helpful in answering all our questions about the house before our stay. The information provided about places to go in Lincoln was also very useful and the personal recommendations that we followed were all very good in helping us make the most of our stay. In the house there were some nice touches such as providing slippers, fresh milk and biscuits for guests when we arrived. We also made good use of the family kitchen which is large and well equipped. The house is obviously old and there are some original as well as modern features in many of the rooms such as chandeliers. The four double beds are large and comfortable, there is also a single room with a bunk bed. There was a good wireless internet connection. Outside the house has a nice landscaped garden at the back with a decked area which would be good for bbqs. The steps leading up to the house at the front are quite steep. Parking is on street outside the house with parking permits provided. Being located on a hill there were some nice views and we even saw the Red Arrows practicing overhead a couple of times during our stay. Lincoln is a great place to visit with lots of places to take in the history, things to do and eat out. St Hilda's is an ideal place to stay. Would definitely stay here again.
Thanks for the really nice review, I'm glad you had a great stay. Many thanks, Jamie
