The Lime Tree in a comfortable boutique hotel located in Belgravia - close to the tube and within walking distance of many London attractions. The neighborhood offered a variety of amenities - pubs, newsstands, shops - yet was very residential and not touristy. It was a nice retreat at the end of the day - quiet and restful.
Breakfast choices included traditional English or continental - both are plentiful and tastey. Staff allowed us the flexibility of mxing it up - part traditional, part continental - if you want some fruit with your fried fare.
The staff were friendly - some more attentive and accommodating than others but overall good service.
We stayed in Room #2 which faces the garden and is on the 2nd floor (bonus). The room's high ceiling added the perception of space and although cozy, we didn't feel crowded. The bathroom on the other hand is tiny. Functional, but very tight quarters and the step UP into the shower (about 10") seemed a bit like an accident waiting to happen.
Standard amenities were included as well as a fan and heater - the fan served us well.
We would recommend the Lime Tree and would definitley return.
