A faultlessly welcoming hotel, from the warmth of the proprietors to the comfort of the bed, and the bay within view, its arm around the sea. Lyn was kindness itself. And then there was Declan, the powerhouse belowdecks, rarely glimpsed but indispensable, as well as utterly charming. Oh to be there in summer when we could have sprawled on the... More

We decided to visit swanage for valentines weekend and found this B&B via a dog friendly website. We had room 5 which had a great view of the bay and a lovely big room. Comfy bed. Lyn was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. She even recommend a lovely pub called the black swan for a very yummy... More

We have stayed in this hotel a couple of times and are going back this year. The hotel is lovely and clean. Lyn is a wonderful hostess and the breakfasts (I think cooked by Lyns husband) are delicious. My children are now 14 and 11 and they now consider Swanage their favourite place in the UK. Our dog is welcomed... More

I came with my sister, friends and a pack of well behaved cocker spaniels and we couldn't fault the hotel at all. I had a small (but perfectly formed) single room that was great value for money. My sisters double that she shared with her boyfriend, was a great size and everywhere was clean and tidy. The breakfast was brilliant... More

Stayed here for one night only. The room was a good size and the ensuite very good. The hotel is only a short walk from the tan and beach and there were plenty of places to eat nearby. The breakfast was lovely and the owners friendly and welcoming. Would definitely stay here again

This was our first trip to a dog friendly hotel. We had a pleasant surprise. The room was small but very clean and adequate for our needs. It was our first time in Swanage and Lyn gave us great advise on where to eat and what to do. The breakfast was lovely and we did eat in the dining room... More

We often come now when the season is at an end, though this year October has been very mild, weather wise. We parked in the rear car park, checked in ( easy ), and took over our room. The Limes is a known quantity. Easy, relaxed, comfortable, well placed. The decor is modern, the atmosphere friendly. The breakfasts are superb.... More

Our visit to The Limes couldn't have been bettered. Welcoming hosts, lovely breakfast with lots of choice, a decent sized room and a lovely little bar. There were lots of dogs when we stayed so there wasn't room in the conservatory but we were happy to leave our Yorkie in the room, so no problem there. The whole place was... More

I once turned up in Swanage without having booked a place to stay, and ended up traipsing around the streets for ages looking for somewhere to stay. This time, I decided to book a few days ahead, and be sure of a bed for the night. I told the proprietor, Lyn, that I would be arriving late. She told me... More

Once again a lovely stay at the Limes. Great breakfast which you can eat in the conservatory if you have a dog. Our room with sea view was spacious & comfortable & also spotlessly clean. A very friendly & welcoming hotel & would definitely recommend.
