I've stayed there twice, once under current ownership and once under previous ownership, and enjoyed it both times. The space is beautiful and the breakfasts are quite tasty. The current innkeeper was very helpful to us on our last trip and gave us lots of tips. We also enjoyed the new amenities to the neighborhood like the coop, the theaters... More

I stayed at Auld Sweet Olive for a week in March 2015 and loved it. Nancy is friendly and helpful and does a mean apricot crumble for breakfast. My room was spacious with a good size shower and toilet. The interior walls are works of art themselves, and the lounge dining area is a lovely space to relax and catch... More

This is a beautiful and well kept B&B, well worth the reasonable price we paid. The rooms are comfortable and nicely decorated, the food was delicious, and Nancy is the 'sweet' in Sweet Olive. We'll go back as soon as we can.

Nancy's lovely place will provide all with a calming escape. The location is in a reasonable walking distance from Frenchman and Bourbon streets. She was extremely helpful in suggesting places to eat and sights to see. Each morning greeted us with delicious homemade hearty (and healthy) breakfast offerings! We would definitely stay there again when visiting NOLA!

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights and had a great time. Nancy was very sweet and accomodating, her homemade breakfasts every morning were delicious. She also gave great advice on places to visit and eat at. The B&B was adorable, bed was comfortable and in walking distance to most everything. The only complaint I could give was that... More

We were going on a family trip: my husband and me, our three adult children, and one boyfriend. We needed someplace comfortable and close to everything - and affordable! Sweet Olive had the absolutely perfect layout for us: two rooms to accommodate a pair in each plus a "two room suite" - actually two complete bedrooms with baths connected by... More

From Nancy's warm welcome to her fond farewell our stay was absolutely wonderful! She thinks of everything from printing out maps for guests to including a weather report on the breakfast menu. Great location, warm and inviting a home away from home.

Nancy is the best.. My husband and I stayed here for 3 glorious days and when it came time to go back to reality I really didn't want to go. We stayed in the Olive room for the first two nights and it's simply amazing. Have your own private porch with beautiful French doors,a gorgeous 4 poster king size bed... More

We made a return trip to New Orleans and didn't think twice about where to stay. We received the same wonderful greeting from Nancy, had the delicious breakfasts and interesting conversations with fellow guests. The area around the B&B is becoming more developed so there's even more interesting things to see and do. Looking forward already to our next stay.

Owner/Innkeeper Nancy does everything to make Sweet Olive a beautiful place to stay. There are few rooms -each with its own bath/shower - and each decorated in a different style (I stayed at the Oak Room, so of course that one's my favorite!) It really feels quite private and cozy (you even lock the outside gate when you come in).... More
