Here is our experience of our three nights, four day stay at The Lime Tree Hotel. We stayed there 7th April through to 11th April 2013, Room 108 Deluxe room, city view, breakfast included; booked through agoda.
Email exchanges with the hotel were dealt with promptly and concisely being very customer focused throughout.
On arrival at the airport (we‘d requested they meet and collect us; very straight forward to arrange) we were met by one of the hotel’s smiling drivers who welcomed us to Kuching and soon had us safely loaded into the very clean, modern minibus. A short journey later we reached the Lime Tree Hotel. Check in was a seamless and pleasant experience during which various bits of essential information were communicated to us in a helpful and concise manner. We made our way to our room and our luggage arrived a few minutes later.
Our room was as exactly described on the internet and we were very pleased; very clean and spacious. Plenty of hot water on demand and we appreciated the very large shower head and the drenching effect given. Room 108 had a comfy bed and was, during our stay, a quiet room.
Wi-Fi is free. During our stay the Wi-Fi was a little erratic in function but there were notices up explaining some local external difficulties which was currently impacting on the internet. That said we managed to connect as much as we personally needed to, overall.
Air-con in our room perfect, could not have been better – quiet and effective.
Breakfasts consistently good and for ourselves provided ample choice all being very tasty and filling. Every morning Mr Soh (the hotel manager) was on hand checking all was well and was seen repeatedly helping to clear tables whilst chatting with guests in an interested (but not intrusive) way about guests plans for the day ahead.
Mr Soh really does care very deeply about his hotel and the guest experience therein – an outstanding guy who sets the standard and seems to be on duty 24/7. Took very good care of us personally and his staff unfailingly followed his lead: thank you Mr Soh!
We made good use of the various shuttle services at the hotel and highly recommend others to check this out themselves; we found the rates and destinations most cost effective and well thought out. Each driver (we experienced three different drivers) were professional and always punctual, a really great team!
In conclusion: The Lime Tree Hotel, its manager, its staff can be extremely proud of the work they are doing for they provided, in our experience, truly excellent all round hospitality and this, vitally, at very competitive rates. Well done Lime Tree!
We absolutely recommend and will not hesitate enjoying a return visit very soon.
