Think this is the third time we've stayed here and very much enjoyed it. The rooms are very comfortable and spotlessly clean, a good breakfast is served, the people are very nice and co-operative and we can walk to the racecourse (about 20 mins) from here. We've booked for next year already.

We booked last minute and were fortunate to land this friendly, accommodating and clean B&B. The hosts (and their family) were informative and welcoming. We walked into the city along the river but an easy bus home at the end of the day. Loved York. We will be back!! Thank you.

A lovely clean and comfortable guesthouse with very friendly and accommodating owners. Ideally situated on the outskirts of the city centre, a casual 20 minute walk either on the road or by the river. Private parking available. Would highly recommend and would definitely stay there again.

We spent 2 nights in one of the triple rooms which was very comfortable and clean. I needed the use of a wheelchair for sightseeing and Fiona & Ricardo very helpfully took delivery of it on the Friday morning of our arrival and then facilitated it's collection on the Monday after checking out on the Sunday. Nothing was too much... More

Thank you so much for posting a review for us. It was a pleasure and I hope your son enjoyed his 13th Birthday in York! The wheelchair was collected without any problem. We hope to see you again in the future. With Kindest Regards Fiona & Ricardo THE LIMES More

We spent 2 nights here while visiting family & sightseeing in York. The room was small but comfortable and the hosts were welcoming and helpful. Breakfast was excellent. It was relatively expensive for the quality of accommodation offered, but that may have been a result of being on a weekend where most accommodation in York was booked out.

We walked along the river twice into York town centre which was a nice flat picturesque walk it took us about 40 minutes I am sure it would be quicker if we had used the main road.However local bus service excellent and bus stop a few yards from...

My husband and I stayed for three nights at The Limes. We were made to feel very welcome on our arrival and our room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean as was the en suite. There was a well stocked welcome tray which included biscuits and sweets and these were replenished daily. The bed was extremely comfortable with lovely white... More
