Myself and 3 others have had fantastic afternoon tea here today. The food was delicious and plenty of it. The brownies where one of the best I have ever had.( and I've had plenty) they even wrapped what we didn't eat to bring away with us. I have had nicer coffee but it certainly wasn't awful and I would have... More

Attended the hotel for our Christmas party. Very dated decor but understand it is under new management who are now beginning to update the hotel. Meal was a simple menu. Starter was beautiful and yummy (goats cheese salad) although my colleagues prawn starter wasn't as only had about 5 little prawns on the plate. Main of beef was quite dry... More

Returned for a second visit to find that the ownership had changed again. Had a modest room this time but with superb bathroom. Couldn't fault the food both at dinner and breakfast. Everything (including the room) priced sensibly because this is not an up-market hotel, although "fine dinning" is promised for the future. The staff were very welcoming and efficient.... More

I held a special birthday party at The Limes-Afternoon Tea for 16 ladies. We had exclusive use of The Oak Room and sat around a huge round table draped with a crisp linen cloth. The food was brought in and just kept coming. The loaded table looked so pretty and dainty. Sandwiches, home made sausage rolls ( fantastic), scones, clotted... More

Stayed in room 1 for the night. Spacious with lovely bed and decent bathroom. Very clean. Very noisy - seemingly fans or something of the sort from the kitchens. Also an annoying green light as the fire escape is the window. The staff are exceptionally lovely and make you feel at home. Breakfast was lovely too. Good food and value.... More

Had a meal with a small party, ordered the risotto with mushrooms, spinach and brie, it came with no spinach! Staff told the chef who had forgotten to include it. Luke warm also. Table setting was very nice and the staff were friendly.
