Good hotel, clean comfortable rooms. Breakfast is served in the lobby cafe. It’s a short walk to the riverside. Excellent free WiFi. Taxi service available. Friendly staff. Pleasant roof top bar which catches the breeze.

We enjoyed our stay at the Lime Tree. The staff were welcoming and always helpful. It is an easy walk to the Waterfront from here. Our room & bathroom were very clean and we enjoyed a lovely breakfast. We would recommend this hotel to you.

The hotel actually easy to find, just at the corner of traffic lights and the location is not that bad. Yes, parking is limited but since I'm using grab, that was not a problem for me. Besides, its very easy to get a grab car which only cost you around RM4-RM5 to go Kuching

Dear ShielaGopinath, First of all, thank you for choosing to stay with us recently and for taking the time to write a comprehensive review on your stay. We appreciate your kind compliments regarding our customer service standards; Awang sends his best regards! Your feedback on the bathroom allowed us to investigate and take prompt action to thoroughly remove the rust and watermark stains in the toilet. Thank you for bringing this matter to our attention. Your comments on breakfast have been shared with our kitchen and cafe team, and we are sorry to learn about your experience. We wish to take this opportunity to clarify a few points. Our breakfast menu changes daily except for staple items such as scrambled eggs, baked beans, toast, our signature banana fritters, fruits, yogurt and Sarawak Laksa. On first day you had breakfast, beef frankfurter sausages was served based on the breakfast menu, and from on our CCTV surveillance, its food tag was visible and at its correct location. Chicken frankfurter sausages were served on every other day. If our guests had dietary needs, we suggest that they approach our friendly members of staff and make this known to them in order for the kitchen team to prepare an alternative breakfast to meet their requirements. Be assured that if your situation had been made known to us that morning, we would have assisted you to the fullest. We apologize for the service shortfall experienced during the refill service, and with your comments I prompted our staff for retraining on efficiency during breakfast service. My team and I remain committed to providing excellent services and facilities at all times; it is through feedback like yours that we can monitor our standards of service and discover areas to improve. Looking forward to welcoming you again. Wishing you many safe travels! Best regards, Julie Tay - Resident Manager The LimeTree Hotel

As usual, the room was spacious and comfortable! I looked forward to the breakfast every morning - great laksa, banana fritters as well as rice and noodles, sometimes porridge if you want something light. The breakfast is Asian-centric but they do have scrambled eggs, baked

This hotel was in a great location for doing a bit of sightseeing around Kuching. Lovely happy hour drinks on the roof with a decent view of the water front. Rooms definitely on the small side and the bathroom could do with an upgrade, but otherwise fine. Bed was super comfy,

Do the windows in the rooms open?
Hi NatalieSFO, our windows with hinges can be opened slightly (6 inches), although we do not encourage this as it will allow warm air and noise into the air-conditioned room.
