Stayed for one night, New Years Eve, had a fabulous time. Very friendly welcome, lovely room & best of all, a lounge to die for, roaring fire, honesty bar, even bowl of chocolates on table for those who didn't have enough over Christmas. Half hour walk into York which may be a bit far for some people, but on main... More

I don't tend to stay in guest houses but this one is welcoming not stuffy with friendly service and very clean, I didn't go down for breakfast but it smelt great. Close to main attractions in York. Room was warm, bed comfy and shower powerful not just a dribble of hot water you get in some hotels. I will definitely... More

We stayed here on our way back to Devon after we had stayed in Scotland for a week to break up the journey. I don't think we could have picked a better guest house. The owners were very welcoming and gave us information on the local area and explained about walking into York or which buses to get. The room... More

Had a super week's stay while moving my daughter in to York Uni. Whole house is kept spotlessly clean, breakfasts were amazing! Both Fiona and Ricardo made me feel like part of the family and nothing was too much trouble. They were my oracle on local information. The Limes is about 25 mins walk in to town but as the... More

I was in York on business and found this place by accident - I needed to be in this part of York and had a car to park. It turns out the place was a real gem. The rooms were clean and comfortable and as you would expect. The walk along the river into the city centre was very pleasant... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights last weekend and I have to congratulate the owners as we had great weekend! Fiona was extremely friendly and the quality of both the room and our breakfast was amazing. This is the first time we have been to York and we will definitely be returning to the Limes. See you...

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.

Firstly I would like to thank you for taking time to post a review for The Limes. We do take notice of any negative points given in reviews and act upon them accordingly. The room that you were staying in is really the smallest in the house and is used for single occupancy wherever possible but is not tiny and... More

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
