My wife and I decided to spend a few days in NOLA as a part of our 21st Anniversary Celebration. One of the highlights of the trip was Auld Sweet Olive. We found it clean & comfortable, Nancy made us feel like we were staying with a good friend. Breakfast was served buffet style with a new featured offering each... More

Just returned from a three night trip to NOLA and I had to sit down and write a quick review of this charming Bed & Breakfast. I traveled with my wife, our 18 year old son and 9 year old daughter. I reserved the courtyard suite and tears came to my eyes as I watched the delight on my family's... More

Stayed here for my birthday back in late May (Long overdue vacation after many years). I spent hours researching where to stay before I found this place. BEST choice ever. Outstanding food, upfront pricing (no hidden parking fees or other garbage) gorgeous rooms, and an incredible owner/manager (Thanks so much, Nancy!). She really went out of her way to make... More

My husband and I went to enjoy a short visit to New Orleans and spent 2 nights and 3 days at this beautiful b&b. The area was charming with a lot of flavor. Close to the French Quarters, we walked there daily. The house was beyond beautiful, no noisy at all, comfortable and just a pleasure to be there. The... More

Myself and a friend stayed in Auld Sweet Olive for three nights in July. The innkeeper Nancy welcomed us in to her beautiful home with open arms. She had obviously spent time and effort gathering info-materials to help her guests make the most of there trip, which we really appreciated. She was always available if we needed to ask anything....

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!
