Many thanks to Lyn for her and her teams caring and excellent help! Breakfasts were exceptional, family room was spacious and very clean. Beds were very comfortable and plenty of towels for two adults and two kids. With all the rain we had during our visit, our car breaking down, the being soaked from head to toe the one thing...

3 of us stayed at The Limes overnight while walking the coast path. The owners couldn't have been more accommodating and helpful and made sure we were first served for breakfast so that we could get stuck into our 15 mile walk that day. Rooms were pleasant and one of our party had a single with shared bathroom facility which... More

Our annual family/friend visit to Swanage, also our third time at The Limes, once again we were made very welcome. Rooms were clean and well equipped. Breakfast was great, there were ten of us and we all had different combinations of breakfast!, Hopefully we will be back again next year.

The Limes in Swanage is a great find. Firstly, a fantastic location just outside the town, although the hill was quite tricky after a few cocktails!😉 Our host, Lyn was engaging friendly and very helpful, showed us to our very spacious and well equipped room. The room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was also very... More

You must visit The Limes! A beautifully presented home from home. Very clean. Wonderful hosts, really warm and welcoming. The Limes offered the best breakfasts we've ever tasted! A choice of delicious full English or a lighter breakfast with fruit, cereals and yoghurt. We had a lovely room with a sea view. We found the room rate very reasonable and... More

Our room on the 1st floor was very well maintained & comfortable although the shower wasn't very powerful & we prefer a hand held spray but that's just personal preference, there was however a plentiful supply of hot water. There is also a communal bath on the first floor so that is very good as an option if you prefer... More

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.
