We found the Sunday Carvery was very disappointing that was being served at the limes hotel. It lack flavour and quality . We decided to enter via what is called the Bugs bar and then you have to walk down a corridor- through another room and then down a further corridor. Where you then collect your meal from metal food... More

It seems to be an hotel in transition (presumably from previous owners). Young staff (some being trained as they go along). Sad, tired reception area spoils first impressions. Up-dated room we had was comfortable, with a modern en-suite bathroom. Food is really good. The two-for one on a Tuesday is a real bargain. Attractive restaurant but the same food can... More

Good to see hotel & restaurant reviews for the Limes are improving, but what a pity about Bugs Bar! Used to be the centre of Needham's social life, bank holiday weekends particularly it used to be full of people eating and drinking, jazz bands playing etc. Now what? -aggressive notices telling you not to bring your dog in, naff plastic...

I stayed there Monday and Tuesday night (13th & 14th April) in room 9. I could only get a Wi-Fi signal if I stood by the door to my room, so spent a lot of my time laying on the floor next to the bathroom/front door so I could get online. Needham Market it would seem has very bad Vodafone... More

Went for a meal here this evening and really enjoyed it. The only reason we tried it was because we had vouchers from the local paper for two mains for the price of one. When we arrived the waiter told us to save the vouchers as Tuesdays are 2 for 1, which we felt was very honest of him. It... More

I know this place like the back of my hand and have been pained to watch it crumble over the last few years to a humiliating low. However the new team have moved mountains to clean the place up and it reminds of the days of old again. Rooms were amazing, food was great, service was fantastic and the whole... More

I was a bit apprehensive after seeing the negative reviews and press but was pleasantly surprised. Attended a wedding which I helped organise and all of the staff were amazing. The food was fantastic, rooms clean it was everything you could wish for. The management team have worked hard to lift this beautiful venue out of a difficult time and... More
