After a long wet drive we were happy to see The Limes lit up like a beacon on the main road making it very easy to spot. From the moment we walked through the door nothing was to much trouble and the landlady gave us all the information we needed to make our weekend fantastic. Our room was spotless and... More

The room allocated to us, was of an excellent standard - lovely, clean, and good facilities. As we were relative strangers to York, we received helpful advice on the best leisurely walking routes (along the... More

Fiona, the proprietor, was lovely from the moment I spoke to her over the 'phone. She saved the day when another hotelier let us down at the very last minute. The Limes is welcoming, spotless and friendly. The breakfast, along with the cleanliness was five star and Fiona and her team couldn't do enough for us during our stay. I... More

Good size room, very clean, comfortable bed. Good breakfast, plenty of choice. friendly hosts. Use local buses, or easy walking distance by the river for York centre. Would stay here again when visiting York.

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.
