Stayed here a week ago. First impressions of the hotel as walked in from the back - OK. Reception area very run down and was waiting 5-10 mins for any service. Check in process was poor, no explanation about breakfast or dinner or the bar. No explanation regarding check out times or any further information. Room was lovely though, stayed...

I arrived at The Limes a charming Georgian town house in the High Street at Needham Market, to a warm welcome from Luke - and must say this hotel has its own country charm ' which is much more homely and cosy than the sort of chain hotels which I'm not very keen on. The room was lovely. Very spacious,...

Came here for breakfast with our Dog on a rainy wet Saturday morning. We were impressed with how friendly and welcoming the staff all were. They were flexible with the food orders, and happy to accommodate quirky requests that mixed up what was on the menu. The food was plentiful and tasty. We were delighted with our food and the...

We stayed for one night in room 11 which is a superior room at the top. The room is beautiful with a very clean new looking en suite bathroom. There is also a small seating area - two seats and a table. We heard the church bells very faintly, but not so loud as to wake us up. Tea, coffee,...

Had our wedding here,we were both widowed , and choose this venue with an all inclusive package for up to 60 guests and all eleven bedrooms included in the deal. Everybody without exception enjoyed the weekend with attentive staff and considering it was mass catering pretty good food. It is an old county hotel and some of the area's could...

This is a quaint and quirky establishment although looking a little bit tired. Our room was very clean and well presented and full of character. The let down was my breakfast, the fried eggs were solid and the sausage looked as if it had been re-heated. My wife's breakfast was good. Maybe Limes Hotel is work in progress so we...

We had booked this hotel as it was near to a wedding reception we were attending. It's not a bad place for an overnight stay, the room we had looked like it had recently been upgraded and was totally adequate for our needs. Breakfast was nice enough and I had full English and wife had kippers, which she says was...

We were instantly won over by the quirky charms of this old hotel, and we loved the deal price of the Travel Zoo offer we took up, most of all we loved the friendly staff. That’s not to say the place was perfect, and their dinner menu in particular needs refining, but we had a marvellous room – charming, comfortable...
