Once again we stayed in The Limes Guest House on Hoole Road. Since 1997 we have followed the Manageress, Mall Hall, to every location she has run. As usual we had a lovely time with people we have come to regard as friends. The staff were very good and everything was kept beautifully clean and the breakfast was perfect. Unfortunately... More

Had no booking just called in on off chance of a room for the night. The owner made me feel very welcome and showed me the room before I committed myself to staying. Was a large, clean ensuite room which I found quite suitable. This guest house is an easy walk to Chester town centre. Only down side was it... More

After reading some earlier reviews we were a little apprehensive before our arrival. However our concerns were unfounded. A very comfortable and spacious room, super choice and quality breakfast and the lady owner very obliging with a great sense of humour. Highly recommended - would stay again without hesitation.

We stayed at The Limes on the Hoole Road back in April – I’ve just not had time to get the done – but feel I should review due to some of the negative reviews I’ve seen on here. The Guest House is easily found on the Hoole Road – we’d hired a car from Liverpool airport, taking 40 mins... More

As a family we booked 5 rooms for an overnight stay at The Limes, but after reading reviews on this site we were worried whether we had done the right thing! We were very pleased to find that we were greeted with a smile on arrival and check in was very easy. Rooms were spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Breakfast... More

Where to start. I arrived on Friday 11th April with my friend and her 15 year old daughter, plus two friends who had collected us from the station with our cases. We had booked two family rooms for two nights, totalling eight beds, with seven of us staying. The moment we arrived the female host of The Limes was unwelcoming... More

To start with,the woman who runs this place is far from welcoming and warm. She made remarks that were rather pointed and rude and the day before we left (I'd booked the 2 family rooms) she asked when we'd be out. We were shocked to learn breakfast is only served between 7:30-8:45 and checkout is at 10. When she asked... More

Dreadful from minute of arrival. No greeting,. I was meeting other guests, as we met, told to make less noise. Never been spoken to like that. No disabled facilities,had to walk 3 flights to my room on very top floor. The room was filthy,carpet made feet dirty Picture hanging of wall above bed. Beds like bricks. On leaving a cleaner...

Stayed at The Limes for just one night. It was average in every way, not bad, but average. The decor was in need of improvement and bringing up to date. Welcome from the hostess was functional. Size of room was adequate but bed was among the most uncomfortable I have experienced - not much sleep. Breakfast was good, served swiftly,... More
