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.

Stayed for a couple of nights last week in August. Super B&B. Excellent breakfasts, really nice bedroom and comfy bed. Short stroll to town centre restaurants and heritage rail station. Lyn is really friendly and welcoming.

We had a lovely few days at The Limes. Rooms spacious, well provided, comfortable beds, excellent views. Nice residents' lounge and bar. Breakfast good, and plenty of it. Décor very well kept throughout (oh how we hate tatty hotels!).

Just had 3 enjoyable days at The Limes with our dog. Both Lyn and Declan were very welcoming and made us all feel right at home. Great idea to have a separate area for folks with dogs to eat breakfast away from the other guests. Breakfast was excellent and so was the cosy bar! Thank you for looking after us.

We've just returned from a very enjoyable bank holiday weekend in Swanage staying at the limes. Very well run establishment. Excellent breakfast served early to fit in with our diving. We had a room overlooking the garden. Not huge but adequate with en suite again adequate. Very clean throughout. We would return.
