Myself and my partner found Limes Hotel (not really a hotel very much a B&B) last minute as we were visiting friends in the area for a Summer Party we thought £105.00 for a B&B was really very steep, but we didn't have a choice. To ask guests on a Sunday to attend breakfast between 8am - 8.45am to be... More

A very friendly family run establishment. Upon arrival we were warmly greeted and shown to our room, which was clean and nicely furnished, although quite a small room it was more than adequate for our one night stay. Breakfast (full English) was excellent and was a great set me up for our journey home. Would recommend!!

This is a small, family-run hotel, close to the centre of York. It has its own small but sufficient car park, which is conveniently entered from a side road (Moorland road). The hotel is pleasant, with rather small but well-equipped and pleasingly presented rooms. Staff are friendly and helpful. The beds are comfortable, with heavy curtains to keep the room... More

We stopped here for 2 nights for my wifes birthday and the dante festival. We had a lovely, clean room with everything we needed. Ricardo greeted us on arrival and showed us to our room. We were immediately impressed. Shortly after we had a drink in the bar and he recommended a restaurant for my wifes birthday. He then rang... More

Friendly staff made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. We opted for the family room as our daughter accompanied us, and this was pleasant and ample for our two night stay. Minor gripe was that the flat screen TV was a bit dated, but we didn't have time to watch more than the odd weather forecast. Breakfast in... More

I gave this b&b an excellent review on the owners' kindness alone. But it also was a lovely house, very clean, and provided a great breakfast. There were minor problems, such as my shower going freezing cold or scalding hot intermittently during the shower and not having a telephone in the room. Also the electric kettle quit working the second... More

Just home from a great weekend with 5 friends. From the time we arrived until the time we left we felt more like family than paying guests. Our 3 rooms were large, comfortable and clean. The breakfast was excellent which set us up for the day. The hotel is located just outside of York centre which is easily accessible either... More

Got to the Limes earlier than expected, and was greeted by the owner Ricardo who welcomed myself and my wife to York, he showed us straight to our room and he was very helpful with any questions we had. We had a great weekend in York and I think it was helped by the stay at the Limes with the... More

We stayed 2 nights B&B in The Limes. The service was friendly without being intrusive. Comfy bed and good menu choice for breakfast. Happy to recommend. Only one tiny irritation - the kettle wouldn't fit under the tap in the en suite bathroom, so had to fill a cup and use that to fill the kettle. About a 20 minute... More
