The hotel is a few minutes walk from the river, just outside the centre of town. The staff are helpful and friendly - able to supply an extra bed for a toddler in one room and a cot for an infant in another. Breakfast is adequate.

Stayed here with my hubby and 10 year old daughter as a base for exploring Kuching. We were upgraded to a suite which was lovely. Very large and clean room. Unfortunate the room was above the bins and every morning smelled of rubbish and bins. We did mention it to the staff and they were very helpful and sorted the...

Room was basic but clean. Tv in room and shower was good. Very comfy bed. Staff were very friendly and helpful. They provided us with an ice bucket each day to keep our drinks chilled. You can hire a cooler if you wish. Lime light bar on the 5th floor is pleasant and provides a limited food choice but what...

It's a 2nd time i stayed in The Lime Tree and the rooms and amenities are good and keeping to it's standard. Just only the thing is my room is facing the main road and it's a bit noisy at night and I woke up few times by the sound of the motorbike. But it's not a big deal as...

We stayed 4 nights and had an enjoyable stay. Staff were always friendly and helpful. Room was clean, bed was comfortable and bathroom was a good size (with nice hot shower!). AC and wifi were excellent. Breakfast was plentiful. "City view" was average.

The rooms were very clean, staff was friendly, and more importantly this place is probably one of the top value-for-money place to be at. There's a lovely rooftop bar on top to escape from the bustle of the city below Would definitely come back again if I'm ever around Kuching

The staff were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Our room was okay, basic, but there wasn't a proper wardrobe, instead, what we had was a very small space behind a tall mirror with only enough space for two hangers. Unfortunately the bathroom wasn't very clean, but with dark tiles you don't notice it at first. The breakfast didn't have much...

Spent 5 nights at the Limetree from the 25th March. Was a wonderful experience. The staff were incredibly friendly, the room was amazing and the breakfast was great each morning. It is the second time I have stayed at the Limetree and will certainly stay again when I visit Kuching next.

In general, the rooms and toilets are clean and it's non-smoking!!! It has been very warm for the past 1 week due to the equinox so we are quite lucky that the room's air conditioners have been working very well for us. Cafeteria does have buffet breakfast included but choice is limited. However, that should be good enough for those...
