“Good for one night - just”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2014 via mobile

Stayed at The Limes for just one night. It was average in every way, not bad, but average. The decor was in need of improvement and bringing up to date. Welcome from the hostess was functional. Size of room was adequate but bed was among the most uncomfortable I have experienced - not much sleep. Breakfast was good, served swiftly, but I think the fresh fruit was better than the cooked options. So, all in all, OK, but just.

Stayed March 2014, travelled on business

Just returned from a fabulous overnight stay at this really nice guest house. We stayed in room 7 , a lovely spacious attic room. It was spotlessly clean, fresh crisp bedding, an a lovely ambience. Breakfast was really nice, a good english breakfast. THe manageress was really helpful and friendly. The guest house is in a really nice village with lots of amenities, only 15 walk from Chester City. I would definately recommend this lovely guesthouse, first class. we will definately be returning

Room Tip: room 7 is a very spacious family room in the attic, really nice

Not a luxury experience - hopeless shower, no plug for the wash basin and lots of extension leads to provide sockets - but great value, location close to the city centre, good parking, clean, warm and lovely girls serving at breakfast.

7 of my friends (inc my fiancée and I) stayed here last night.

Gosh. Where do I start? It absolutely stank of a retirement home. Like a vintage, soggy hospital even. Just horrible. The actual stench was so overpowering throughout the hallway, eating area and our bedroom.

Awful pillow. And a strange ink type smudge on the linen.

The landlady actually told my friend off for having his leg stretched out under the dining table. (He's 6 ft 2) She wasn't very warming at all. A real stern headmistress type.

All the rooms are the same price, yet my room was so small, you couldn't swing a cat in it. So how comes my friends paid the same rate as us when they had a room double the size?

And do t get me started on the UHT milk at breakfast and the food itself. The sausages were greasy and carcass filled and there was no vegetarian option. NO VEG OPTION? Ridiculous.

Turn around and go somewhere else!

Stayed at the Limes a couple of weeks ago and we are full of praise for the Hotel and the staff all of which were very polite and welcoming. The Hotel was very clean and peaceful with just short walk into the beautiful City of Chester. I would happly stay at the Limes again. Nearly forgot to say the breakfast's were good to.

The rooms in the limes are clean and tidy and as such, will provide you with a comfortable sleep. The women who runs the B&B however, is substantially less than a treat to deal with. Her snarky comments at breakfast about the greediness of my friend because he had a bowl of cereal before his fry up to prepare for a 80 mile bike ride that day was less than well received. In addition, we were overcharged 30 pounds for the stay and after a small argument, decided to leave it and head on our way. Thus, you'll be well rested but will likely leave with an unpleasant idea of the areas hospitality. Good luck!
