Lincoln House Hotel
A family-run hotel set in a former Victorian Town House close to central Cardiff, the capital of Wales.
The Lincoln House Hotel is perfectly located in a leafy residential suburb of Cardiff but less than one mile from the central city and its host of visitor attractions. The hotel itself is made-up of two elegant Victorian townhouses which have been sympathetically restored to their former glory.
Located on the main thoroughfare of Cathedral Road, the Lincoln House has the best of both worlds – away from the bustle of the city centre whilst still offering a host of quaint pubs, restaurants and eateries within a few minutes’ walk. With complimentary on-site parking it is an ideal city location for your driving tour of Wales whilst its convenient location ensures you can be within the city centre within a 5 minute drive or twenty-minute walk. A pleasant stroll through Sophia Gardens will take you to Cardiff Castle, the city’s focal point, and to the water taxi which can take you along the river Taff to the cosmopolitan redeveloped Cardiff Bay area.
A family-run affair, the Lincoln House is owned by the father-daughter team of Juliane and Carl Kodurand and operated with the help of a small local team. They offer a warm welsh welcome and have been known to provide complimentary freshly baked welsh cakes for guests of adeo Travel upon check-in!
The hotel has 24 guest bedrooms each of which is individual in size and aspect reflecting the historic nature of the building; rooms are generally spacious with large comfortable beds and en-suite bathroom facilities. Each room is individually designed and well-appointed; décor and style throughout the accommodations are modern whilst also effortlessly integrating and retaining their historic character features such as Victorian fireplaces, cornicing and bay windows. All modern comforts are catered for including complimentary tea/coffee making facilities and free in-room wifi. The hotel is spread over three storeys and although there is no elevator the reception staff will be happy to assist with your luggage or ground floor rooms are available upon request.
A hearty full-Welsh breakfast is provided in the sun-filled breakfast room each morning and whilst there is on-site restaurant for evening dinners there are plenty of options for evening dining within a short walk of the hotel or in central Cardiff – the reception team will be happy to make personal recommendations. There is a small, peaceful bar in the hotel where you can have a pre-dinner drink, and an elegant guest lounge with a large Victorian fireplace and mantle, antique furnishings, book collection and chandeliers. This is where you’ll find the complimentary guest computer with printer and internet access.
