Stayed only for one night. Excellent location. Very friendly innkeepers, delicious breakfast, adorable courtyard. Everything was very clean,relaxing atmosphere with complimentary gourmet snacks during mid afternoon. The room and bed were comfortable, of appropriate size and pleasant but somewhat simple. Small shower area with poor water pressure. A little overpriced in my opinion, but in all fairness, a good value... More

We have stayed in many Bed & Breakfasts over the years, but this was by far the best. Everything from the décor, comfy beds, and friendly, helpful staff was excellent. If you stay here be prepared to gain five pounds. The gourmet breakfast and afternoon tea were wonderful with daily creations made on premise by a wonderful chef and kitchen... More

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Malbone House Inn in mid June, and we missed the comfort of the luxurious King bed we had there right away! I dare say the sheets and mattress were just as good, if not better, than at the Sofitel. You'll have a restful night's sleep here. Also, toiletries are by... More

This place is located near the shops and restaurants. The mansions is well maintained. The guest rooms are very nice. Breakfast and afternoon tea are both delightful. We got great dinner recommendations from the people there.

They provide a delicious breakfast in either dining room or enclosed patio, and an opulent afternoon tea. Everything freshly prepared and delicious. The owner and staff were extremely helpful with restaurant and touring recommendations, and make the guests feel genuinely valued. We highly recommend the Francis Malbone House!
