Managed to park easily in the good size carpark. A warm welcome from the owner Mel on arrival and issued a key each for the front door and bedroom.
We were on the top floor (room 6) with a double and 2 single beds. Nice spacious room with nice clean linen on the comfy beds (sheets and blankets rather than duvet) .Plenty of extra bedding and pillows in the wardrobe.
2 comfy chairs and quite a few scatter cushions as well.
The ceiling light also had a fan which could be turned on at different speeds-very welcome on this warm weekend.
Plenty of electric sockets in the room. Hairdryer supplied but the safety cut-out seemed to kick in when it got hot after using it for a few minutes.( Used my own travel hairdryer to finish my long hair off so worth taking one along.)
A notice on the wall said iron/ironing board was available.
Wall mounted Freeview flatscreen TV .We couldn't get BBC signal on ours, don't know if that's the case throughout the house, but plenty of other channels available.
The usual beverage tray with tea,coffee,sugar,milk with 4 glasses as well as the 4 cups & saucers.
Plenty of drawers, tops and cupboards for our possessions.
Decent size bathroom with electric shower over the bath. The nice big fluffy towels replaced each day and complimentary shower gel,shampoo and soaps. It was nice to have a toothbrush holder on the wall, not seen this in many places .
Room well maintained with nice clean carpet and curtains.In fact the whole place was clean and well decorated .
The breakfast room was spacious with help yourself to cereals, yoghurt, fresh fruit, juices.Also perculated coffee. Toast and tea served at table , along with the cooked breakfast which was very well presented and well cooked . All served by Mel and a friendly young girl. Pleasant outlook over the garden area from the breakfast room. A good start to the day!
Ideally situated being only a short walk into town but far enough out to get away from the hustle & bustle later at night . Banks with outside cashpoints and shops very close by.
Next door,just a few metres walk over the road on the opposite corner to The limes , is The Lodge Bar which is part of The Bawn Lodge hotel. Very popular and also has a beer garden with patio heaters.Free Wi-fi in there as well much to our sons delight. Nice and handy just to roll out of the bar back to the guest house just a few steps away ;)
We felt really welcome and at home at The Limes Guest House and will certainly book here again.
Thanks to Mel and staff for making it a brilliant weekend :)
