The Limes is a lovely friendly hotel which we would highly recommed. We had a wonderful stay for 2 nights and the owners could not have been more welcoming and accomodating. Breakfast was delicious too! We would definitely stay again. Thank you once again.

We have just got back from a wonderful weekend stay at The Limes, and were very sad to leave. There were 11 in our group and all had a great stay. We had a very warm welcome from Fiona and Ricardo the owners, who will do anything possible to make your stay special. The hotel is immaculate, all the rooms and bathrooms are very clean and well equipped, Breakfasts are wonderful, with a good choice of yoghurts, cereals, fruit and full english cooked to perfection. There is a lovely bar and sitting room and an outside space where you can sit and enjoy the sunshine. There is also plenty of parking. We had taxi's into York ( arranged by Fiona) as we were attending the races but chose to walk back from York centre later on and found it to be a pleasant 20-25 mins. We would suggest you book early to avoid disappointment as our stay at The Limes has been a real treat.

We have stayed at the Limes several times before and each time it has been a pleasure. The owners are very friendly and always very helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the breakfast is excellent with fresh produce well cooked. The location may seem a little way out of York centre but it is on a convenient bus route and we found it no more than a brisk 20 minute stroll. There is nearby access to walks along the river both into and away from the city and of course it is very well placed for access to the university. Our daughter has now graduated from the university so our visits will be less frequent but I can honestly say that when we visit York or North Yorkshire again we will want to stay at the Limes.

We used this B&B for our daughter's graduation and found the hosts to be most helpful.
Breakfasts were delicious and they even cooked an early hot breafast for us on the morning of the graduation. There is a very pleasant public sitting area which is licensed to sell alcohol and lovely to relax in at the end of the day.

My only criticism would be the price.. We paid £120 for a triple room and I felt that was a bit expensive compared to other B&Bs

It is also worth noting that the regular bus service on the Fulford Road stops at 8pm sobe prepared to pay for taxis as the B&B is really too far out of town to walk at night.

Great place and convenient for the York University campus (5 min easy drive). Warm welcome, great accommodation and easy bus ride/walk into town. Not the cheapest guest house you will find but if you want quality and convenience I would recommend highly. Very restful night's sleep and excellent breakfast. We will stay there again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our three nights staying in a clean and well appointed family room which was spacious enough for two adults and two young children, although the en suite shower room was on the cosy side. The welcome and service couldn't have been friendlier and the breakfast was excellent. Well located for both the City Centre and for the ring road. Double bed somewhat on the soft side, but bunk beds well received by the children.

My wife and I stayed here on a three night mid week break. in June.The hotel has a free car park and as there is a nice walk into the city along the river we didn't have to use the car.There is a good bus service into the city if you don't want to walk with the bus stop not far from the hotel.The Limes is a small but comfortable and clean hotel.The room was a good size and very clean.The owners are very freindly and helpfull with any questions. There is also a small bar in the hotel for a quite drink.Breakfast in the mornings were excellent with a great choice.
This was the first time we visited York and will return in the future when we do we will defientley stay at the Limes as I could not fault it on anything.
