The Limes, York I stayed for three nights at The Limes in York in November 2014. The interior was charming and comfortable, like the home it once was. Although I was a single, I had a large room with a comfortable double bed. The bathroom was bright, clean, and functional. I ate the hearty English breakfast, served with a smile... More

Having travelled a lot over the years, just got to say that the time we spent here was terrific. The place itself is welcoming, warm and friendly. Everything was just a cut above most places to me it was the little things that made it. They seem to have thought of everything you might need and provided it, To top... More

We have just returned after two nights at The Limes. It is in a great location, with an easy walk into the centre of York ( about 30mins). The accommodation is superbly clean, the hosts very welcoming, and the rooms nice and large, and very warm. The beds extremely comfortable. Parking is provided off road, and easily accessible. Breakfast both... More

Stayed at the Limes this weekend while visiting York for the races. The Limes was lovely, clean, rooms a good size and together with the friendly hosts, Ricardo and Fiona (and family) we couldn't fault it. The breakfast was excellent too. If we visit York again we wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.

Stayed at the limes for 2 nights-friendly family run guest house. Greeted and made to feel at home by the 17 year old son. Amazing breakfast made by Ricardo. Hostess Fiona was fab, friendly and made our stay wonderful. If we come to York again will stay with you.

Our fifth stay at The Limes and it's just like visiting old friends. Always a warm welcome, very clean, excellent breakfasts and great fun. We will return,as always, and I can't recommend The Limes highly enough. It is only a short walk into York so it perfectly placed. Looking forward to our next visit - see you soon guys x

Traveling from Scotland to London we came upon this B&B by accident through a booking site. We like to take advantage of last minute discount and therefore preferably book the same day or just the night before arrival. Such we did in this case. The Limes are advertised as a hotel on the booking site, but are in reality a... More
