Very good 8.0
Nice hotel, good location
The hotel has nice and green surroundings with trees and good car park. The room was good size and with table and chair in the balcony but could do with having a small fridge and kettle.

Exceptional 10.0
Refreshing as a lemon
It really was refreshing to meet the very friendly and helpful staff at the Lemon Tree Inn. The rooms are nice, and reflect a vintage touch, from their 50's beginnings. I especially liked the Princess wall phone hanging next to the toilet. Our stay was very pleasant.

Very good 8.0
Nothing “lemonade” about the Lemon Tree
Nice quiet motel. Nicely maintained and a great place to stay. The restaurant had amazing food! Having the restaurant on site was an added plus. Very friendly and helpful staff. Great rate and would stay again and recommend.

OK hotel, needs cleaning and renovation
This hotel is fine. Good location and nice courtyard, pool. But the rooms are pretty outdated (old bath fixtures, for example), and our carpet was filthy (kids' feet turned black after being barefoot in the room). For $140 a night, the carpets should be clean...
