I can't recommend this place highly enough ! Fantastically located in central Memphis just behind the Peabody Hotel and near Beale street - we were able to walk to most attractions and it was 3 minutes home from our nights out on Beale street . Tom the owner met us and showed us to the safe lock up parking nearbye... More

Really comfortable place to stay which felt like a home away from home. Very central, rooms are very comfortable and cleaning. We enjoyed talking to the hosts, they were very helpful, had lots of suggestions and could not do enough to help out. If you are going to Memphis I would highly recommend, make sure you ask for dinner recommendations.

This place is the perfect place to stay on so many levels. First of all, the two hotel managers are really nice people, with great conversation and who will go out of their way to make sure that you are confortable, and know what to do / where to go. Second, location is right downtown. You are within walking distance... More

Talbot Heirs is a terrific place to stay in the heart of Memphis. Conveniently located in the downtown area, you feel right at home as soon as you walk up the stairs. Tom made us feel right at home. The "room" was every bit as spacious as our Boston area condo with a full kitchen, sitting area, desk and comfortable... More

I spent a week in Memphis and could not more highly recommend the Talbot Heirs Guesthouse. Located in Downtown it is 2 blocks to Beale St. and within easy walking distance of amazing restaurant choices from the toniest to total dives, all with food to savor. Do not pass up Gus's Fried Chicken or Central for bbq, 6 blocks or... More

What a place, just round the corner from Beale Street. We had the appartment with the grand piano. You could not fault Sandy, he was an excellent host, did everything and even managed to park our pick up truck in the multi story nearby. You cannot ask for more. And right in down town Memphis too. Better than any hotel.

We will join the chorus – Talbot Heirs is perfect for hospitality and location! We phoned Tom from the Peabody where we had been deposited after our Mississippi cruise and in no time he met us half way along the street and carried our luggage up the stairs. He was then extremely generous with his time in providing advice about... More

Theres not much more I can add to everyone's prior reviews...only that you'd be crazy to stay anywhere else if you're in Memphis for fun. Great location, great service, wonderful room-bath-kitchen-patio, lovely touches like coffee and breakfast ...stay here!

Perfectly located, opposite the Peabody and 100 yards from beale st, this was so much better than a hotel. Huge rooms, great shower, and kept stocked with tea, coffee and snacks. Tom and Sandy were lovely and really helped us out when our suitcase was damaged. Definitely the place to stay in Memphis.
