“Limes Hotel”
Reviewed 2 April 2012

On arrival we were warmly greeted and shown to our room, we were informed that if we needed anything at all we just had to ask.The room was extremely clean and it had all the facilities that we needed. The breakfast was very good and there was plenty of choice.We were celebrating our Ruby Wedding Anniversary and were delighted to find a dozen red roses in our room.All in all a first class experience and a place I would definitly recommend & return to.

recently spent long weekend at The Limes and from first phone call when we got lost to saying goodbye on the Monday morning nothing was a problem for them. First class breakfast and a comfy room. Convenient for the city centre, nice walk along riverside or bus , stop is just across road. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: we had room 8 so no noise from main road.

Stayed overnight at the Limes March 2012. Room was spotlessly clean and comfortable, lovely bathroom toiletries provided and a wonderful cooked breakfast. The owners are very friendly and welcoming and the location was great for the city centre. Would recommend the Limes.

We stayed for just the one night on Friday 11th Nov 2011. The room was very clean and nicely decorated. The owners, Fiona and Ricardo are very pleasant and nothing is a trouble to them. The hotel has plenty on site parking and easy access into the city centre. In the morning we had a breakfast that was truly fabulous with table waiting that was second to none.

We just got home from a two night break at The Limes. What a superb place - it feels more like staying with friends than staying in a B&B and it really is like a welcoming family home! The owners Ricardo and Fiona go out of their way to make you feel at home and are always well presented and smiling. Our bedroom was immacculate and supplies replenished as needed and the breakfasts were beautifully presented and very enjoyable.

All in all we couldn't find fault with anything - from the decor to the friendliness of the family all is first class - will definitely be staying again!

Reviewed 29 September 2011

First, this isn't a bad place to stay - it's just below what my wife and I expected for a 4 star and from reading the reviews. The good; location is good, well placed for public transport and only a 15 minute walk along the river into the city. Breakfast, no complaints at all, very good.

The service was friendly although we had no reason to ask for anything out of the ordinary. Getting replacement tea bags and milk for our room was more difficult. The owners has some friends or family round on the Saturday night, which was fine except that they could be heard until around 2 am, depriving us of our sleep. Back to the tea bags - my wife tried to catch the attention of one of the family during their party to get some extra tea bags, to no avail. She did catch their attention, but whoever it was decided not to do anything about it.

Generally the place was clean, although most of our towels were frayed. The mattress felt old, but I slept ok apart from the Saturday night. No blackout blinds either, and a rather small en-suite.
To sum up - nice enough place, overpriced and spoiled for us by a noisy Saturday night. Not the place for a romantic weekend away.

Room Tip: Avoid the ground floor!
