We have just returned from our stay at this fabulous guest house. Sonia was terrific and so accommodating, nothing was too much trouble even taking us to the venue for our concert. Breakfast and accommodation excellent.

A beautiful, atmospheric property oozing with character and charm. My husband and I were made to feel like friends coming to stay rather than paying guests as Sonia was kind and welcoming. No expense was spared on all the little details in the room and we just wish we could have stayed longer. We can’t recommend The Limes highly enough

I've been meaning to do a review so as we are all "stay at home" now is my chance. We had tea at outside the Limes on a fete/event day with a view to book a future weekend. The rooms are lovely and the landlady welcoming , if not a bit over chatty with the hard sell. Tea & sandwiches in the afternoon overlooking the green was delightful until about 5 pm. Then we heard a barrage of loud profanity that even my husband winced at as 3 doors down there is a "working men's club". They were all on the patio of the club using an assortment of undesirable language that was loud to hear. One of the attractions of the Limes is it's tranquillity ........ but the working men's club & it's clientele "to hear" was NOT. So thank you for the wonderful tea & sandwiches but we wouldn't want to risk our weekend with your neighbours. For the place itself I would give 4 but the neighbours takes it down to an overall 2. It's a shame. I have attached a photo showing the proximity.

This B&B is a gorgeous period property in a perfect location overlooking the Green. Sonia the host is just wonderful, friendly, welcoming, lots of information on attractions in the area, so much knowledge. The food is absolutely delicious with the most divine selection, yogurt, fruit, serials etc, which leaves you short of nothing. The english breakfast is cooked to perfection with first class ingredients. The large bedroom was gorgeous, having on suite shower room. The large bed very comfortable & there was lots of storage space. This has to be one of the best B&B’s we have stayed in. Thank you Sonia for looking after us so well in your wonderful house.

We were again very fortunate to stay at the Limes, our second stay in three years, and both were excellent, and a good value for the cost. Sonia is a charming and gracious host, and has thought of every detail for a comfortable and relaxing stay. We were apprehensive as we approached our first visit, having never stayed at a B&B, but were quickly welcomed and made at home. Bearsted is a quick and easy direct train ride from London, and The Limes are worth a day or two away from the big city. No car needed if you don't have one- while it may look like a hike on the map from the train station, the Limes is at best a five minute, luggage-friendly walk. Several restaurants and shops are nearby, along with hourly trains for day trips back to London, neighboring Maidstone, Leeds Castle, Sissinghurst Castle or further to Dover or Brighton. On our first trip, Sonia even arranged for a private antique car tour back and forth to see the White Cliffs of Dover, with the requisite stop at the pub for a pint. The house has two suites, both are equally roomy and comfortable, quiet and private. The bed was large, amazingly comfortable, with every British amenity we could think of, from a selection of teas and snacks, Pear's soap, local books and brochures and space to spread out. We entertained our local relatives during our stay, using the lounging and breakfast rooms as though we were at home. Although there was another couple when we stayed, we never knew it, and felt as though we were the only guests. The garden and outdoor lounging areas are welcoming and available anytime, and Sonia is happy to share gardening tips and seeds. Breakfast was an excellent start to the day, changing daily, with essentially an unlimited menu on request. Sonia's repertoire on her classic AGA range included American and British fare, and anything in-between. Timing is very flexible, early or late as needed. In summary, The Limes will absolutely be on our itinerary for our next stay.
