“Beat my expectations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2013

I can honestly say I really enjoyed my stay here. We came to York on business at short notice and picked the place based on the proximity to our meeting. Yet it turned out to be far better than we expected. In fact, we will not be using the mainstream hotels in Tork in future. The rooms were at least as good, similarly with the business facilities, and the service was truly leagues better. I am now looking at returning to York for a short break and this will be the place for us.

Room Tip: First floor is best for me

This B&B is family run by Riccardo and Fiona who are friendly and welcoming hosts and go out of their way to provide a good experience. The ensuite rooms are extremely clean and comfortable and the breakfasts are exceptionally good- we have experienced none better and is one of the reasons we keep going back! Don't be put off by the location being slightly out of town as there are regular buses into town - though we preferred to walk in along the river..only about 20 minutes and good to stretch your legs after a full English breakfast. Visited regularly whilst our daughter was at York University and have just visited again with friends who were just as impressed as we were. A fantastic B&B!

We had 2 nights at the Limes hotel and were disappointed with the room and its furnishings. Everything was in need of refurbishment and not what we had expected for the price. Bed was very uncomfortable. We paid £70 per night with no breakfast as the chef was on holidays which was supposed to be a discounted price. This did not compare well to other B&Bs we have stayed this trip.

My mom and I stayed at The Limes over the summer and had a wonderful experience. Fiona and her husband were very welcoming and accommodating to us. We needed to get some washing done as we'd be on a trip around England for over a week at this point, and she arranged it for us without a problem! While I was there I also left my cell phone in a taxt and she helped us track it down and was there to get it from the taxi driver when he brought it back. Outside of their outstanding customer service, the room was clean, comfortable, welcoming, and overall lovely. Thanks again!

We chose this hotel mainly because of its location and because of other comments made on Trip Advisor. We were not looking for a City Centre Hotel.

The Limes is situated about a 20 minute walk from City Centre via Banks of River. It also has Car Park although there is off street parking available. If you don't fancy venturing to City Centre there are about 4 local pubs within a 10 minutes walk and also a local Chippy. There is also a regular bus service to York City (£1.90). Taxi costs £5.00

We found this hotel to be extremely friendly/clean/ hospitable. Fiona made us both feel very welcome, she is friendly and humorous. The Breakfasts were freshly cooked and fulfilling and the room we stayed in was extremely clean and comfortable.

Thoroughly recommend this Hotel for those who don't fancy finding a parking space and enduring City Centre location

This is an excellent well run B&B close to the city centre.We were ther for only a couple of days and needed to be close to the city and this fitted our requirements to a T.Good off street parking, just parked the car up and didn't use it till we left Good sized room very clean with en-suite shower and toilet. Good breakfast served in a good sized breakfast room.lounge bar was nice to be able to have a drink whilst waiting for the taxi. Helpful owners with information about York. would definitely use again.
