4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Very comfortable and quaint accomadations. Stayed in the downstairs bedroom with a comfortable bed and bathroom which was exceptional. Beth and Dave were very accommodating and eager to please. The southern breakfast (grits and scones) and amazing teas was worth the overnight fee in and of itself. Historical house. The community is quiet but representative of that part of Alabama.... More

A welcoming place after a long journey! Beth and David made us very welcome - their hospitality was second to none. The house has so much charm and character the rooms where very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was outstanding, made even better by Beth and David joining us. Thank you Beth and David for making... More

When my mom visits my sister and her daughters they always make time to visit this Tea Room and B&B. Today was my first visit and I am glad we had time to squeeze it in during my trip as well. Dave and Beth are renovating this grand old lady themselves and are taking the time to do the research... More

Victorian charm envelops everything at this B&B. The owners, David and Beth, are delightful conversationalists and excellent hosts. Breakfast of cinnamon scones, strawberry-banana scones, eggs to your liking, bacon and fresh brewed chai was elegantly served in their well appointed tea room. The fruit was lovingly prepared (mango, strawberries, peaches.....scrumptious!) and accentuated by flavorful, fresh fruit butter. The atmosphere and... More

We always have a great time when we visit the Tea Room. David and Beth (the owners) are always so accommodating and helpful to our "tea-time" needs. It is really a great experience for friends to sit and visit with one another without all of the busy, hectic world interruptions.

We stayed with David and Beth (the owners) for 2 nights. Due to health issues, we were a bit more trouble than most but it didn't faze them in the least. The tea and scones were lovely. We loved the chance to try different teas but the do have coffee for the diehard coffee fan.

Don't let the exterior paint condition fool you (the owners are gradually repainting the house). Inside is a wonderful combination of genuine southern hospitality, neat and comfortable rooms, and excellent food. Service is outstanding. In addition, the cost equation is excellent too - great value for the money. We have stayed in many, many B & B's and this one... More

We enjoyed a short overnight stay at the Smith-Byrd House in Prattville. This a great way to break up the long drive to the Gulf coast. David and Beth have lovely old home and were very gracious hosts. Breakfast was wonderful and we were served scones, omelette, juice, coffee and obviously tea. We used the room downstairs and the king... More

Headed for a special event in Montgomery, Alabama, but want a quiet spot to stay? Book a room at this charming Queen Anne B&B in nearby Prattville, Alabama. Innkeepers Beth and David Melling are charming hosts. The Inn is beautifully decorated with period furniture. With the atmosphere and exceptional breakfasts, the Smyth-Byrd House is a great value. The Mellings accommodated... More
