Hickman Hill - comments - Rating 5/5

Room was ready even though we arrived early. Our room was great, newly refurbished to high standard with good in-room facilities. Near to town centre. Attended wedding nearby so only had breakfast in hotel - very good, freshly cooked with a good selection of buffet and cooked items.The owner who welcomed us was very friendly and professional, arranging a taxi for us and making sure everything was OK. We recommend staying at Hickman Hill.

stay at Hickman Hill Hotel - Rating 5/5

I would recommend this hotel to any-one who wants a relaxing evening after either a hard day at work or just a day out, the owners are very welcoming and friendly, weather you eat in the bar area or restaurant, the food is excellent, I recommend the belly pork and black pudding as a starter, the braised beef and mushroom sauce was beautiful, I will defiantly stay again, for business or pleasure.

Nothing was too much trouble, including providing me with fresh, delicious and imaginative vegan food. If you are coming to Gainsborough, or the area, staying here would make your visit a real pleasure.

We were the only guests that Sunday night. We had dinner in the hotel and there was no problem in choosing whatever time we wanted. The food was excellent, especially the pork belly.We both had a comfy nights sleep followed by a hearty breakfast.If anything I would contest that the B&B rate is too high for the area and for what is provided, albeit to a high standard. We would consider staying again but are mindful of the rate


Dear Jonathan,Thank you for the review and your great comments regarding the food and room.

arrived here prior to a wedding the next day, was worried that we would be late for dinner, but the proprietor couldn't have been more accommodating and e mailed us the menu so that he could have the supper ready when we arrived at 9:00 pm. When we arrived we were greeted by Michelle, who was so welcoming and showed us to our room which was fabulously appointed with gorgeous furnishings and decor, to a boutique style. We were made to feel very welcome and they were so helpful with local knowledge that we needed to know to get to the wedding the next day. The food was pretty good too, with a lovely choice for breakfast. Would definitely recommend this hotel to others without hesitation.

Welcoming & Friendly - Rating 4/5

I stayed at the Hickman Hill Hotel for one night prior to meeting a client in Gainsborough. After a long 4 hour drive the welcome I received was both informal and friendly. I arrived later than planned but was made to feel that this was no problem at all and after unpacking was welcomed into the bar with a much needed drink and a menu from which to select dinner. The food is without doubt the hottest and freshest I have ever had - seriously, don't touch the plate!! Nothing seemed too much trouble and anything that could be done to make my stay for comfortable was done without being overly 'in your face'. My one reservation would be that the room decor and bathroom suite was a little tired and could do with modernising, it felt a bit like I was staying in my grandparent's spare room but it wouldn't stop me staying here again next time.

Hickman Hill - Gainsborough - Rating 5/5

Have used before and will do so again. Run by a very friendly couple who can give a bit more time to any little things you might require.PS - very nice steak for dinner!

Such a warm welcome - Rating 4/5

We were made to feel so welcome. The bedroom was very comfortable, superb breakfast and we would visit again or just pop in for a meal.

Hickman Hill Hotel- Rating 5/5

Had a super stay at the Hickman Hill while visiting Lincoln Christmas market. The charming hosts couldn't have been more helpful and the food was as fantastic as the hospitality. Will definately stay there again if I get the chance! Julia Leigh


Thank you Julia for the great revue.

Out of the Ordinary - Rating 4/5

Great welcome from enthuiastic hostess. The Music Room was "a little quirky"but very comfortable, you get lost under an avalache of pillows and cushions. Only two little gripes chest beside bed is too high, bashed my elbow and no shelf near small handbasin in the bathroom. Food excellent!!!! The Patron should go in for "Masterchef"


Dear Mr Friend,You are very kind about the food. We agree about the lack of a decent shelf in the bathroom and will be doing something about it very shortly.

3 Night Stay - Rating 3/5

A great welcome and friendly personal service/attention to the needs of this customer. Meals were of a very high standard, with prices to match. The interesting hotel building itself is a work-in-progress:our room was rather 'tired', but not all are.

A little gem - Rating 5/5

This is a little gem of a hotel that we would fully recomend to any one wanting a quiet peaceful weekend away. Excellent service, friendly and amazing food. Worth more than AA 2stars anyday.
