An overnight stay at the limes, before a visit to the university was a very pleasant experience. On arrival (which was quite late) we were shown to our room which was very clean, comfy, and had all the little extras such as travel shaving packs, toothbrushes and complimentary kit kat! A great nights sleep was had by the 3 of... More

Our stay at The Limes was a delight. We were welcomed by the lovely Fiona and the stunning breakfast was cooked by footballing legend Marco. The room was clean, spacious and well equipped. My partner and I, both keen gardeners were impressed by the beautiful flowers and hanging baskets on display. Next time we are in York we are going... More

We stayed here on Saturday night and the place was very well kept and comfortable. The breakfast on Sunday morning was lovely. This will be the first place we'll check the next time we come to York. Highly recommended.

Wonderful guesthouse that felt more like a boutique hotel than a 'bed and breakfeast'. The owners were helpful, polite, freindly, warm and accomadating. The room was beautiful, clean and well kept with lots of space. Breakfast was amazing and very sympathetic to vegatarians. The owners took pride in their customer service and were informative about the area.The guesthouse was only... More

Just back from a wonderful 2 night stay at The Limes. Can't speak highly enough of the accommodation or of the staff and the breakfast was fantastic. We are already looking forward to staying again next year!

We stayed three nights at this excellent b & b. Room was very nice and York city centre is only a 25 minute stroll away. Breakfasts are superb, all local produce and plenty of it. Fiona and Riccardo are very knowledgable of the area and will advise on which resturants to eat etc. Overall a very pleasant stay and would... More

This is what we want ! Perfect room, perfect location, perfect food and perfect hosts. You can't get much better than this. Independents like this just prove there is better value out there other than the big chains provide. Well done for all your hard work. Long may you continue to be successful !!

We stayed with our 2 children in the family room of this charming little B n B over Easter. The hotel was a convenient 20 minute walk into the city center of York. The walk along the river was one of the nicest walks that I have done in a long time. The hosts were friendly and welcoming and the... More

Looking for a last minute hotel near York we called the limes to be helped over the phone booking. Great customer service and helped with our questions about local transport for the evening. Our room was spacious and would be perfect for a family as there were bunk beds available. Breakfast was substantial and great quality. Overall it was a... More
