I have stayed in many hotels over the years for business and you cannot help but build a rapport with the staff when you stay for a few nights. The staff here are great, we have had great fun staying here and have got on well with everyone. The rooms are clean, comfortable and up to date with decor. The...

We stayed here with our 2 young children, the room was spotless, friendly staff the only down fall was for the price we paid didn't get breakfast which to me seemed rather over priced Needham is a lovely place and I would if needed to stop here again

We attended a Christmas meal and dance. The food was the worst I have ever eaten anywhere. Frozen bits of crayfish starter, a pepper stuffed with just tinned mushrooms for main with cold partly roasted potatoes and frozen sprouts. We complained and only paid half price but definitely won't be returning. This in no way reflects the staff, they were...

Stayed here a week ago. First impressions of the hotel as walked in from the back - OK. Reception area very run down and was waiting 5-10 mins for any service. Check in process was poor, no explanation about breakfast or dinner or the bar. No explanation regarding check out times or any further information. Room was lovely though, stayed...

I arrived at The Limes a charming Georgian town house in the High Street at Needham Market, to a warm welcome from Luke - and must say this hotel has its own country charm ' which is much more homely and cosy than the sort of chain hotels which I'm not very keen on. The room was lovely. Very spacious,...

Came here for breakfast with our Dog on a rainy wet Saturday morning. We were impressed with how friendly and welcoming the staff all were. They were flexible with the food orders, and happy to accommodate quirky requests that mixed up what was on the menu. The food was plentiful and tasty. We were delighted with our food and the...

We stayed for one night in room 11 which is a superior room at the top. The room is beautiful with a very clean new looking en suite bathroom. There is also a small seating area - two seats and a table. We heard the church bells very faintly, but not so loud as to wake us up. Tea, coffee,...

Had our wedding here,we were both widowed , and choose this venue with an all inclusive package for up to 60 guests and all eleven bedrooms included in the deal. Everybody without exception enjoyed the weekend with attentive staff and considering it was mass catering pretty good food. It is an old county hotel and some of the area's could...

This is a quaint and quirky establishment although looking a little bit tired. Our room was very clean and well presented and full of character. The let down was my breakfast, the fried eggs were solid and the sausage looked as if it had been re-heated. My wife's breakfast was good. Maybe Limes Hotel is work in progress so we...
