About Charlotte House

Charlotte House Hotel’s mission is to provide the perfect home away from home environment. Though small, the family-owned 14 room hotel provides well-appointed rooms and suites in traditional or contemporary design.

From superior double rooms to two-bedroom apartments and suites, guests can look forward to comfortable beds and bedding, Wi Fi access, plasma televisions, and ample sized bathrooms with power showers.

Located on eight acres of exquisitely landscaped property, the Art Deco style structure and contemporary design is a perfect venue for wedding ceremonies, business meetings, and receptions.

Due to its size, the hotel provides a relatively small menu and buffet style dining. Guests typically have a choice between two to three main entrées, sides, and desserts.

Charlotte House is located in the historic Cathedral Quarter. Beautiful Lincoln Castle is just across the road. The hotel is also home to the Sir Joseph Banks Tropical Conservatory and the John Dawber Gardens.

Close to Lincoln Castle grounds.

Due to its location at the top of Steep Hill in the Bailgate area, the hotel is a very close to the Lincoln Castle grounds, offering pleasant views, gorgeous landscaping, and a relatively quiet environment. The hotel is located just behind the castle, so

Welcome blast from the past for some.

Due to its age Charlotte House lovingly retains and maintains many of the original construction features that include high ceilings, wooden floors, and dark stained wooden furniture. For some it's a welcome sight, though for others it may be a bit old-fas

Negative Reviews

Old building lacking in some amenities.

Due to the age of the building, you may not find amenities you're used to in a bed and breakfast or hotel, including lack of a lift. Heating pipes are also old and exposed in the rooms, so watch out for kids and don't get burned. Parking may be difficult

Popular wedding venue challenging to some.

Charlotte House is a popular wedding venue so you may want to avoid booking a room when a wedding party is in occupancy. On such occasions, the bar and restaurant may be closed and loud music and noisy, partying guests may interrupt an otherwise peaceful

Beware the restaurant may be closed at dinnertime.

Several negative reviews focused on the inability to book tables for dinner or the restaurant being closed. This seems to be fairly common when private or wedding parties are booked, mainly in the summer months, so check ahead of time!
