The home itself is full of love and character. Nancy's hospitality and award winning breakfasts and fresh fruit in the parlor really start the day off right. The rooms are quiet and clean and decorated in a unique way. There is a lot of outdoor space and a lovely and spacious patio area for outdoor dining. The living space is... More

My mother and I travelled to New Orleans for the July 4th Long Weekend. I booked the hotel online with no problems and promptly received a confirmation email from the owner, Nancy. The day we arrived Nancy met us at the B&B, she gave us a tour of the lovely home and provided us with maps and information on the... More

We spend 5 nights in the bed and breakfast and we did not want to go home! What a beautiful house and Nancy is an amazing host to have! Rooms are beautifully decorated and feel like home. When you don't feel like going out you can sit outside in the garden. Breakfast is homemade and amazing, something different every day!... More

A friend and I stayed here during the Essence Fest a couple weeks ago. I secured this reservation back in February after talking to the owner, Nancy. She was very pleasant and helpful on the phone when I asked her several questions about the bed and breakfast and about New Orleans in general. When we checked in, she was there... More

We spent 8 nights in the Courtyard Suite and it was truly our home away from home. The french doors leading to the back patio were such a convenience as we spent many evenings resting and enjoying the beautiful surroundings. Nancy was a wonderful host and very knowledgeable about her city. The house was beautiful and only a short walk... More

I found this place on line but it there was no vacancy. at the last minute with no hotel to stay we were lucky enough to get a room. The owner welcomed us into her amazing home. I loved it from the minute I walked in. Loved the artwork painted on the walls. We stayed in the honeymoon suite. Spacious,... More

Not sure what else to say that hasn't already been said! Would highly recommend if you fancy something totally different and quirky and not your usual unfriendly hotel. Its a wonderful place to stay and Nancy is a fantastic host. Don't expect to have TV, there are plenty of board games if you want to play them. It was great... More

Without a doubt, the best place to stay in New Orleans. Not only is the location fantastic but the accommodations are top notch. Nancy is a superb "innkeeper" with an amazing support staff. Nancy has mastered the art of making you feel like a treasured guest in her home, part of her extended family. Nancy also creates an amazing breakfast... More

We chose to stay at Auld Sweet Olive as it was only a short and pleasant walk to the French Quarter and offered free parking outside the property. We couldn't have been happier with our choice - what a fantastic house and neighbourhood. We stayed in the Palmetto room which had its own door out to the patio. It only... More

This is a great B&B in New Orleans. We opted to stay in a B&B instead of a hotel in NOLA and I'm glad we did. Nancy is a fabulous host and quite famous in her own right. She goes out of her way to make your stay easy - we travelled with our bub and she left us toys... More

Enjoy the gardens, the private courtyard, and our complimentary breakfast featuring coffee, juice, fresh fruit, yogurt, fresh-baked goodies and more!
