We had booked for one night at the Lime Tree only, but rebooked for a second night for the two nights we stayed in Kuching. The hotel taxi was there to pick us up at the airport as ordered, the staff were very friendly, the rooms were clean, the breakfasts were great, the location was good and we ate both nights at the rooftop bar which offers superb viewing. We would certainly stay there again.

We've stayed in lots of hotels and hostels this trip. Cheap as well as expensive. This was one of the best. Cheap for what they have to offer! Nice and clean rooms, modern, good food, very friendly staff, good breakfast, great rooftop terrace, wifi everywhere (good quality). Higly recommended!

This hotel lived up to its excellent reputation. The staff are very friendly and obligingly organised a trip to the Sarawak Cultural Village for us. We were always greeted with a smile, which makes all the difference. The rooms are very clean, spacious and comfortable. The hotel is a comfortable walking distance from Kuching's main attractions including the Waterfront and Museum.

We stayed at the LimeTree Hotel for 3 nights and really liked the hotel. We didn’t want to stay at one of the chain hotels and had read excellent reviews on Trip Advisor.

We booked an executive double. There are some cheaper rooms without windows for RM100 (£20) which is an excellent option for a backpacker on a budget who doesn’t want a dorm room. This price includes breakfast. Our room was a good size with a very comfy bed. The hotel only opened in May 2009 so all the rooms are spotless clean and modern. The bathroom was a good size equipped with lots of toiletries. We had a TV, fridge (with some drinks provided FOC – this applies to executive doubles and above I think), a safe and good air conditioning.

The hotel has a travel desk and the staff are very helpful, making suggestions on restaurants and trips from the hotel. The hotel also has a minibus and a car which will take you around town or wherever you want to go for the same price as a taxi. This is really helpful if you’re worried about local taxis or being over-charged as a tourist and although there were plenty of other people in the hotel we never had a problem getting hold of the hotel transport. The hotel does airport pickup and drop off.

The restaurant is good. Breakfast has a good selection. We had cereal, fresh fruit, toast and then eggs cooked to order. There was also a selection of Malaysian foods for breakfast. I note some trip advisor reviews have criticised breakfast, but for us there was plenty. We also ate dinner in the hotel one night. It’s a small-ish menu but there is international and Malaysian food. I had a delicious crab sandwich with chips and coleslaw, and my boyfriend had chicken with Sarawak pepper sauce which was also lovely.

One of the best features of the hotel is the rooftop bar. It only opened in January 2010 but is a hidden gem. The bar has an indoor seated area with a projector screen; my boyfriend was pleased as he could watch the football. There is also a lovely outside area with views over the city. There are a selection of drinks, Tiger draught, wine at a reasonable price and good cocktails, also a good selection of premium brand spirits.

Rather than having a list of 25 cocktails which are all average they have a list of 8 or so cocktails which are made well. I have found that cocktails in Asia are very weak, but these were nice – especially the LimeTree Mojito. Only RM12. The opening prices finish in February though. We sat in the bar most evenings and watched the sunset. I took my laptop onto the roof and made the most of the free hotel wide WiFi which is fast and reliable.

There is also a darts board and sound-proofed karaoke room which is quite popular with the locals!

Overall this hotel is an excellent 3* family run hotel in a good location with good facilities, brilliant staff (better than you find in some 4 and 5* hotels in Asia) and you will not want for anything if you stay here.

Dear Sandh_uk,

Thank you so much for such a great review of The LimeTree Hotel! We were overjoyed to know that our team was able to make your stay an enjoyable and memorable one.

You may wish to know that the rooms without windows are our Superior rooms and as you mentioned, the rooms in February were under a festive offer of RM100 per room/night with complimentary breakfast. The Superior room is also larger than the Deluxe rooms which have windows and a view.

We are also really glad that you enjoyed our LimeLight Rooftop Lounge; we too love the breeze and view in the evenings there! In any case, we will continually strive for excellence to make our lounge one of the best things our hotel has to offer.

It was great having you and your boyfriend with us during your stay and we thank you again for sharing your experience. We wish you safe travels and look forward to welcoming you back when you are in Kuching!

Best regards,

Julie Tay - Resident Manager
