First of all I rarely if ever write a review but I had such a good experience at The Limes in York that I feel I need to. It was my first visit to York, England. The best part of the experience was the owners Ricardo and Fiona. They were so friendly and helpful with anything and everything we needed...

We chose it from trip advisor reviews and so glad we did. There were problems of original date we booked for them as our friend was ill...

My mum and I had a fantastic weekend staying at the Limes. The hospitality was the best I've ever experienced, all the luxury of a top class hotel with a personal and homely feel. The breakfast was out of this world, and the location was ideal for walking and access to the centre of York. Would definitely recommend.

Nice location, roughly 30 minute walk into York (or get a bus from just outside). Rooms are clean. The real star is the breakfast though, 100x better than most hotels. The ingredients used are top quality, and are cooked on demand to a very high standard. Good selection to choose from and a great selection of speciality jams. Would recommend...

My partner and I stayed 2 nights and were greeted by one of the owners, Fiona who was extremely pleasant, warm and informative. We found the place clean, tastefully decorated with quality fittings. Food was excellent. Would definitely recommend it to a friend and would have second thoughts about returning.
