What a lovely Inn! Staff was great, accommodations were superb (bed was oh so comfy) and very chic, location couldn't be more ideal as you can walk to so many things. In a residential neighborhood which makes it so quiet and peaceful...we awoke to the sound of birds chirping. Absolutely wonderful. Just wish we'd had one more night.....

I live in Durham, and refer many visitors to the King's Daughters Inn. Every since it opened I have been looking for an excuse to stay at this lovely inn. And I found my excuse on February 12th, when central North Carolina was under the siege of one of the worst snowstorms of the decade. We had tickets to a... More

I too was at the King's Daughters Inn during the snowstorm. Our hosts provided gratis dinner for two nights and the entire staff could not have been kinder. I think there is nowhere I'd rather be stuck for several days--a luxurious room with gloriously high ceilings, free wireless, lovely quiet decor, a sitting area and desk for work; walking distance...

We were stuck in the recent North Carolina snow apocalypse and were able to get this beautiful B&B room close by while every hotel chain was sold out! It took us 2 hours to get there (which was 2 miles away!) but once we arrived the manager and owners did everything possible to make the best of the snowy night... More

Picture this: Durham NC is suffering under the throes of one of its worst snow storms in history; the governor has declared a "state of emergency." Cars litter the roadsides. The icy wintry mix, barreling in from the South, has hit three hours earlier than expected. En route from Virginia back home to Johnston County, NC, I am caught driving... More

This was our family's first stay at a bed and breakfast inn. Let me start by saying, KDI has set the bar extremely high! We loved every moment of our experience in this exquisitely decorated inn. The luxurious amenities were numerous and surprising. We were pampered with a fantastic and spacious room filled with conveniences including an IPad and fabulous... More

My husband and I stayed here to have a night away and enjoy the culinary talents in downtown Durham. To our delight, the King's Daughters Inn lived up to all the rave reviews we read on Trip Advisor. And, they left use chocolates and port in our room! The KDI is a boutique hotel/B&B. The rooms are gorgeously decorated in... More

Upon arriving to the kings daughters inn, I was greeted by a very pleasant and knowledgable staff. An attendant showed me to my room and all that it offered which included an ipad (every room has these.) Breakfast the next morning had many tastful varieties of freshly prepared breakfast food. The meal is the perfect accompaniment to the great night... More

An overnight stay at KDI is the ultimate holiday gift to yourself! I stayed in the Tyree room and luxuriated in supersoft sheets, all manner of lotions and potions, and a visual smorgasbord of lovely appointments, while pampered with wide-screen TV and electronics.Breakfast brought an array of granolas and fruits, beverages, and yogurt, followed by personally selected omelet, pumpkin waffles...

Our stay couldn't have been better. The location is outstanding, with a wonderful view of campus. Our room was spacious, comfortable, and quiet. The Inn has done a great job keeping the historic feel of each room while ensuring that the fixtures and technology are modern and convenient. Service was also outstanding. But no review would be complete without mentioning... More
