We stayed here for 6 nights in mid May at the beginning of a six week tour of the UK and again for 11 nights at the conclusion of our trip. We stayed in a superior twin and then a superior double. Both rooms which overlooked the lovely back garden were warm, sunny, spotlessly clean and furnished very comfortably for an extended stay. There were plenty of mirrors, lots of wardrobe space to store clothing and suitcases. The bathrooms were small but very adequate with powerful showers.
I wasn’t going to review the Lime Tree because there are already so many good reviews and the Hotel is often booked out months in advance, however this was our 4th trip to London and we were so comfortable staying here it would be unfair not to do so.
Without exception the staff are all very competent, friendly and genuinely interested in ensuring their guests’ comfort. We loved being served breakfast with a warm smile and as we stayed so long they anticipated our requirements and were ready for us each day. The warm, welcoming atmosphere in the dining room was a very pleasant start to each day.
The location was wonderful with a short walk to Victoria Station or to the Bus Stops for our days in London. It was one street away from the busyness and great to come home to and chill out, exhausted, have a quiet lie down and ready ourselves for the evening ahead. The surrounding area has great restaurants. The Ebury Wine Bar next door was very accommodating serving quick meals before going to the Theatre. La Bottega was best in London for a great coffee and lovely Italian treats, which I could never resist. The Thomas Cubitt had the best Sunday Roasts. The surrounding neighbourhood was lovely for walking around. We won’t hesitate to stay here again, if we can get in, as it was our best London Hotel experience by far.
