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

My Mother in law had reserved a table for a family meal to celebrate her 82nd birthday on 14th February 2015. We found ourselves in a central table surrounded by several couples. The tables were beautifully decorated with rose petals, the menu was varied and interesting and the ladies were offerered rose, chocolates and everyone had a glass of fizz... More

Having chosen to stay here as a party of four taking a slight gamble based on recent reviews we were more than pleasantly surprised. We found the service to be, quite frankly, excellent - reception was well manned and they were very helpful and attentive to all of our needs. Breakfast was very good, freshly cooked to our requirements, even... More

We were hoping to go and see our friend sing on nye. When we enquired about tickets for our family we were told it was £6.00 per adult including children over the age of 12. How can they class a 13yr old as an adult when they cannot even go to the bar. We were going to bring our children... More

This hotel is in the heart of the village situated near antique shops and quaint coffee shops and excellent eating establishments, just across the road is the village church that is approximately 700 years old and is well worth a visit. The hotel it self is well run with an excellent team. Food and entertainment is first class the rooms... More

Ever since new management have taken over, it seems as though the Limes has gone drastically down hill. The drinks are much more expensive, and as for the food! I cannot see you how you can charge £5 plus more for a meal of the same size and quality than before. Service was slow tonight, despite being relatively empty as... More

We have stayed here many times in the past but it is now under new management and it has gone down hill dramatically. They insisted in us paying for the room when we checked in and said that if we were unhappy with anything they would give a refund. The room was fine and had been redecorated since we last... More
