This place is an absolute gem. The rooms are lovely and spacious, the staff great and the food amazing. Prices for rooms are extremely competitive, similarly for the food and drinks. All the food is freshly prepared. The breakfasts are too. I chatted briefly to the owner, who told me the place was originally his house and he'd built the... More

Stayed for one night, great location approx 1/2 mile from M42. The room was clean and well appointed, very comfortable single beds and comfy pillows which is a must for me. Dinner in the restaurant was well cooked and nicely presented. However the huge portions could put some off, didn't really need the starter which was also massive. Overall I... More

Stayed for one night to break a log journey. A nightmare in every way. External door did not open completely and we struggled to get through. The room was not made up even thought it was past 6pm in the evening. The windows were made of the old glass bricks so we could not see out. We were given another... More

Came to The Limes on Monday with my family and I have to say this place is fantastic. You can tell there has been lots of work done to the grounds which really puts this place on the map. The BBQ area is brill, all of our food was cooked on a wood burning BBQ which is very rare. This... More

A great wedding venue., Although nestled in a lovely country lane this Hotel is easily accessible. The food served was tasty and the staff coped well with the event. Would suggest some patio heaters as would take the chill on standing outside.

Hired for a half-day workshop. Conveniently close to M42 in very rural area. Quite attractive with large external marquee and gardens. Fairly small venue and the room required for the conference was the breakfast area so we had to wait for people to complete breakfast. Room once started was OK but roof was leaking and we had to move one... More

Dear Speigal, Thank you for your review. I understand there was some confusion from the booking agent and what was expected. We fulfilled everything stated on the contract and was happy to included extras on the day at no further cost. We would have been happy to accommodate further catering if requested. It is disappointing to hear you feel we... More

This is a lovely venue - with rooms (rather than a hotel-focused operation). We were guests at a lovely family wedding and The Limes was ideal: friendly and relaxed with thoughtful service. The team seem young and keen and the food was excellent. (Unusual for a wedding, in my experience). The grounds are terrific (with some areas still being enhanced),... More
