We stayed at the Lime Tree Hotel for a week in October and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. It became a little home away from home which, when you're on extended travels like we are, is very welcome! It's definitely punching above its weight, providing you with all the mod cons in a very convenient, central location at a really... More

A pleasant hotel, friendly, helpful staff. Room had everything you would need - tea and coffee making facilities, bottled water, TV, slippers. Our room on the 2nd floor overlooked the street, so there was some traffic noise - mainly underpowered motorcycles with what sounded like no silencers. Bar / restaurant on the top floor with view over the town. Breakfast... More

Comfortable room with all necessary amenities, good breakfast to start the day. Food in the rooftop restaurant is good and the lime cheesecake should not be missed.

Although it didn't feel like I was in Malaysia staying in the LimeTree Hotel, it is a very nice property. Very clean, kinda hip and a little bit quirky with all the references to limes. The rooftop bar is a nice place to lounge, although it doesn't have a view of anything particularly interesting. Staff was really friendly. It's just... More

I stayed here for 7 days. I paid to upgrade my room to a larger room on the 4th floor.

This hotel is not top of the range but more than adequate for a couple of nights stay giving you the opportunity to visit various local attractions.

This hotel is located by a very busy road and only has single glazed windows. Because of this all the rooms in the front (we tried 2 of them) have a serious noise problem from the loud motorbikes that seem to drive by till late at night. Our first night was in a deluxe room at the front, we could... More
