Cathedral Quarter, City of Lincoln
Duke William Hotel

Duke William Hotel

A historic hotel and self-catering cottage dating to the 17th century on Lincoln's famous Bailgate, in the heart of the Cathedral Quarter.

Part of the successful independent Ever So Sensible Group of pubs and restaurants, which runs sites throughout the East Midlands, the Duke William offers you a very relaxed stay. Whether you’re in the area for business, a short family break, romantic weekend or part of a celebration this is the ideal choice. Free WiFi is available throughout the building. All the rooms have either baths or showers, some have both, including free standing baths for that more luxurious soak.

Breakfast is a homely affair of quality local ingredients, cooked fresh to order. All of the food in the restaurant and pub is freshly prepared using only local suppliers. Food is served all day and there is a fantastic range of local cask conditioned ales, as well as British craft beer, a great selection of soft drinks and naturally a comprehensive wine list.

The building itself dates back to the 17th Century, so the bar and a number of the rooms have real historic character. With an open fire during the colder months of the year, this is a building of real character and atmosphere.


The 17th century cottage is situated directly onto the Bailgate. It has a double and twin bedroom (can be converted to a double), with a sofa bed in the lounge and is available to rent as self catering for a minimum of three nights.

You can of course join the restaurant for breakfast and dinner if you want, or room-service is available to have it brought round to your own backdoor with drinks, and take the dirty dishes and glasses away after. The cottage has a small yard area to sit outside.
