We stayed here as a couple and were very impressed at the team spirit and quality of what was on offer at the Limes. Spotlessly clean accommodation, great breakfast, very decent set of staff who were genuine and friendly. I've paid twice as much for half the service. thoroughly recommended.

The rooms were very... More

Breakfast was plentiful and it was great that you could eat in the conservatory and keep the dog with you. It is fantastic to find such a dog friendly hotel, but you... More

We have just stayed at The Limes for a long weekend and it was excellent, very helpful and freindly staff, good clean and tidy rooms 1st class breakfast, in fact I can't fault it (except maybe the walk up the hill after a couple of glasses of wine in the evening!) We will definately be back.

Gorgeous little B&B in Swanage, The Limes is perfect for a short break. Clean, comfortable, excellent facilities, great location, very dog friendly, even more people friendly! The breakfast was everything you'd wish. The attention to detail from the very approachable and helpful owners takes some beating. They have menus of all local pubs and restaurants, will advise you of places... More

Stayed in this charming B&B for one night with my two whippets. The hosts are so friendly and helpful. You just feel comfortable the minute you walk through the door. Great location and so many beautiful places to visit in the area. Room very comfortable, good Wifi too.
