We stayed at the B&B during a long weekend and received great advice for places to see and where to eat. Nancy was great host, very friendly and easy going. We stayed in the Courtyard Suite and the neighborhood is quiet and seemed safe. We walked to the French Quarter very easily. The room was clean and met our needs.... More

We stayed in the light and airy Sweet Olive Room which is fabulous, with windows (with black out shades!) or a french door on three sides and a private outdoor entrance. This was my first trip to New Orleans. Nancy is a superb baker and innkeeper and surprised me with a German Chocolate Cake for my birthday breakfast that was... More

This is a lovely home to spend time in. Nancy was helpful with places to see and places to eat. We were included in her tree decorating party. The lounge was huge and comfortable. The rooms big and quiet. The drawbacks for us were: No tea making facilities during the day only at breakfast. It was a long walk to... More

We had never stayed at a B&B, and this exceeded our expectations. What a charming place. And host Nancy was incredible. Even helping with some dinner reservations. We can't say enough about how wonderful Auld Sweet Olive B&B is. A quiet neighborhood just a short walk from the Quarter. You have to stay here. Thanks Nancy. And the breakfasts were... More

My boyfriend and i stayed here for a few days between Christmas and New Years. The location in the Marigny is great- a quick walk to the quarter, but located on a quiet residential street. There was ample on street parking. Owner Nancy's home made goodies as part of the continental breakfast were sublime, and she was super helpful with... More

My wife and I have traveled from our home state of New York to New Orleans on five separate occasions in the last few decades. Our latest trip in November was put together quickly and our usual bookings at hotels in the city and in the French Quarter were not available. We decided to try a B&B just outside the... More

Booked the entire place for a girls trip. Everyone so friendly and helpful. Very chill, relaxing and low key. Very nice courtyard with delicious cumquats growing. Nancy full of great advice. Had a great time. Only draw back is not that close to anything. 15-20 minute walk from French quarter, and neighborhood a bit unsettlingly night. Ended up paying for... More

I surprised my husband for his 50th birthday with a trip to New Orleans. First time for both of us. Auld Sweet Olive was perfect. I chose this place because I wanted to be away from the hustle and bustle but close enough that we could walk. This gave us a nice local experience because we had to walk through... More

Having never been to New Orleans, it was my hope that by staying in a B&B (rather than the stereotypical hotel), we would have the benefit of an 'insider's view' of NOLA. Our experience was better than we could have ever expected! Nancy and her staff made some of the best suggestions for activities, places of interest, best dining options,... More

My husband and I have been to New Orleans several times to meet up with our friends who live in Lafayette, LA. The four of us booked Auld Sweet Olive for Halloween weekend and split the 2 room suite.This beautiful and peaceful B&B is by far our favorite place that we stayed in NO. The owner, Nancy, is such a... More
