Stayed here for 1 night whilst away on business. Pros: secure carpark, nice gardens, close to centre of York, clean. Cons: rooms on small side, 1 hour slot for breakfast which doesn't start until 9, squeaky bed, heavy quilt (esp in summer). Overall would stay again whilst on business.

Had a great stay here for my husbands birthday. There were six of us in our party, rooms were very clean and breakfast was excellent. .The owner was very friendly even put a candle in my husbands black pudding on the day of his birthday. Felt very welcomed indeed.

Just spent last Friday night at this hotel, I was originally meant to stay two but couldn't. 19 of us were booked in for a hen weekend which meant we took over the whole hotel. I was met with a lovely friendly welcome by the lady who runs the hotel. She showed me to my room and explained everything. I... More

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 !!
