This place is fantastic. Its cute and cosy like all guest houses should be, the breakfast was delicious but the thing which made it stand out were the lovely, friendly, helpful owners. We booked the accommodation as we were off to a gig at Lincoln Showground. When we arrived, we attempted to book a taxi (I know, we are not very organised), the owner saw that we were struggling and offered to take us himself to the Showground. He also offered, if we were unable to find a taxi at the end of the night, to come out at 11pm to collect us! When we went to leave the next morning, our vehicle was not happy and we had to call out the RAC. Again, the owner came out several times to check on us, offered us our rooms back, offered us tea and the use of the facilities. They could not have been nicer, they were also genuinely interested in our conversations and we could have chatted all day. Would 100% recommend this accommodation.

Just returned home after a lovely short break at The Black Swan Guest House. Hosts Graham, John and Judy made us (and our dog Rufus) feel very welcome and 'at home' in their period property. Our room, the 'Cromwell' was extremely comfortable; excellent facilities with a small kitchenette (fridge, microwave, kettle, tea coffee and hot chocolate supplied too). Tea towel, dish cloth, washing up liquid and kitchen towel also provided, with fresh fluffy towels, soap, shower gel and tissues. Even cotton wool balls and eye pads - nice attention to detail. We also had good night's sleep on a soft, comfy bed - which makes all the difference when staying away from home. Breakfasts were fantastic; nicely cooked fresh to order, with a big menu choice. Hearty and wholesome full cooked English, fruit, yoghurts, cereal and porridge, toast and Tiptree jam, juice, and a lovely large pot of freshly brewed coffee. Tasty and a great set up for the day. Rufus enjoyed his first break away too. Toilet facilities provided in the garden and some very nice walks down to the River Trent. Thank you for a very pleasant stay and hope to visit again at some point.

We stayed in the 4 poster room on a friday and Saturday night. Very impressed by every aspect. Very friendly hosts, very clean rooms, exceptional breakfast. Will most certainly return! With connections to Oliver Cromwell the building itself it beautiful and tastefully decorated. Visited the local battle of Gainsborough site and also old Gainsborough hall which is a must see attraction.
