About

Family-run for 30 years, we like to think the Lime Tree fills the gap between tired old B&Bs and big, impersonal chain hotels.

We offer lovely bedrooms, friendly service and a delicious breakfast in a brilliant location. By doing away with all the expensive add-ons of larger hotels we concentrate on getting the basics right at a great price.

Staying with us

The Lime Tree is situated in a beautiful Grade II-listed building almost two centuries old, and thankfully every effort has been taken to preserve its original character. Many of our rooms feature grand high ceilings, open fireplaces and original cornicing - with the odd creaky floorboard too!

Due to our historic status we don’t have a lift, so if you can’t manage stairs easily please do ask us in advance for a room on a lower floor (staff are always available to help with luggage). Given our central location in upmarket Belgravia, please also note that room sizes can be smaller than you might be used to in out-of-town locations.

Our area

Sited adjacent to the junction of Ebury Street and Elizabeth Street, we enjoy the lovely village-like atmosphere of south Belgravia, surrounded by a wonderful selection of coffee houses, restaurants and independent boutiques.

Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Harrods and the museums of South Kensington are all within easy walking distance, while the West End's shops and theatres, the Tower, the London Eye and St Paul's Cathedral are all quickly accessible by bus or underground.

Rooms

& Rates

Every one of our 25 bedrooms has a different size, shape and layout, but they all provide everything you need to put your feet up after a busy day out. Each of our rooms is individually decorated in a distinctive style using a range of designs from British suppliers such as Osborne & Little, Sanderson, and Cole & Son, and all have their own ensuite bath/shower room, opening sash windows and radiator with temperature control.

Reviews

It’s hard to imagine better value for money in central London… a place that made me feel at home the moment I walked in.

The Daily Telegraph

You'll be hard pressed to find better value in the centre of town. The Lime Tree – two elegant Georgian townhouses – stands less than a mile from Buckingham Palace, with Westminster, Sloane Square and Piccadilly within walking distance.

Sawdays

Enthusiastically run by Charlotte & Matt, the Lime Tree offers spacious and thoughtfully decorated rooms and a fun-loving breakfast room.
