We have just returned from a lovely 2 night stay at the Limes. The building itself is beautiful and very homely. We arrived early evening on the Friday and had a warm welcome from Lyn. Lyn has that rare quality of giving you all the information you could possibly need whilst being entirely unobstrusive. The hotel has a guest lounge... More

We stayed at the Limes as a couple with our dog and we could not fault anything. We had never been to a ‘Guest House / B&B’ with the dog before and as such we were apprehensive but we need not have been. Following a warm welcome, we had a perfect 3 nights. Everything was spotlessly clean and the breakfasts... More

We are currently staying at The Limes, and usually I wait until I've left a hotel before reviewing, but this is so good that I felt confident saying so straight away. We wanted a dog-friendly place as we travel with our two dogs, and this is perfect. There is no extra cost for dogs, we were offered a cover for... More

Had a very warm welcome and the owners were very accommodating as I had to have an early cooked breakfast. The single room was comfortable and the shower was good (shower and toilet across the hall, which wasn't an issue at all). Nice stay and would certainly recommend it.

Arrived on the off-chance in the town on way home, decided to stay, and this was recommended by tourist information. Great choice, friendly welcome from Lyn, and our dachshund Bertie loved it! She said up to 15 dogs stay here, and can accommodate up to 30 people in 12 rooms. Will be returning next March for the Blues festival. Breakfast... More

Thanks for the review. Delighted to hear that you, and Bertie, enjoyed your stay. Fifteen dogs is extreme (only once I think!), but we often have a few staying. You don't have to have a dog to stay at The Limes! Hope to see you all another time. More

Lyn and Garry are very friendly experienced hosts who genuinely want their guests to have a great visit. We received a warm welcome (even though they had only 20 minutes notice of our arrival). All the rooms in The Limes are beautifully clean and freshly painted, the bathrooms appear newly refurbished. We were offered tumble drying for our wet clothes... More
