“Lovely get away!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

A beautiful place, great service, lots of charm, and within walking distance of Duke and many places to eat, We stayed in the Watts room. Lovely decor and a super comfortable bed. We even had an iPad provided in our room to use with the wireless. Nice bathroom, but upon close examination the craftsmanship of the shower during the remodel is lacking...I hope it does not get old looking too fast. Shower water pressure is great. Nice towels and robes provided. Port wine and chocolates were by our bedside when we returned from dinner.. No refrigerator in the rooms which was too bad because we wanted to chill a couple of drinks, but they said there was a refrigerator we could use somewhere even though we did not use it, I will stay there again when we visit!

We have been received extreemly friendly. The rooms are very nice, large and clean. Breakfast ok. The location is close to the main street and has also close access to the campus. Can just recookend also for parents of students.

My daughter and I chose the King's Daughter's Inn as the headquarters for her recent wedding weekend and were more than pleased with the outcome. From the casual family dinner in the beautiful dining room Thursday night through the following Monday when I had to ask them to go through their trash to find a diamond necklace that had been inadvertently thrown away, every detail was flawless. (Yes, they found the necklace!) It felt like we had invited our closest friends and family to stay with us in our home where every need was met with a smile. Breakfast was deliciously made to order each morning; our beds were magically waiting for us each night with chocolate and port on the nightstands. We gathered in the large living room and first floor sun room and visited with one another to our hearts' content--it was like a big family reunion. Every request was greeted with a smile, and the staff was always friendly and helpful. We held the bachelorette party downstairs in Brody Hall on Thursday; the groomsmen dressed and had lunch and photos in the same place on Saturday. All in all, I would highly recommend The King's Daughters Inn to anyone who is looking for a place to gather family and friends in a congenial, beautiful setting. You won't be sorry.

Room Tip: The Trinity Suite was wonderful--large, light and airy, with the fabulous sun porh. The girls of ou...

Second visit to this B&B. Rooms all have a sitting room and separate bedroom with an art deco decor. Very clean, awesome high-end sheets. Breakfast made to order in the inns historic dining room was great. Homemade muffins, scones, stone-ground grits, chocolate chip waffles. Only negative was that we had to check out very early and asked for a to-go breakfast, which the inn offered to do and were really disappointed to find a few store bought packaged snacks. We were looking forward to some of the inn's awesome muffins or scones.

My husband and I had the privilege of staying at The King's Daughters Inn recently and it was the most pleasant bed & breakfast experience we've ever had! The ambiance of the property is so unique and refreshing. Our room was fantastic - bright colors, retro decor, and high ceilings - we could have camped out all night. Its location is so close to both Downtown Durham and 9th Street Areas, however, that we opted to walk to dinner. When we returned, we were greeted with a sweet turn down service including a treat of port & chocolate for each of us. The owners of KDI are fabulous - Deanna and Colin are dedicated to being TRULY GREEN - a rarity but something that is so important! Whether you live in Durham and want a getaway evening out, or you are in town visiting, or even looking for a place for a large group to stay during a wedding weekend, KDI is the most special place you can stay in our area! I highly recommend it!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Markham Suite - it was awesome. Corner room - two rooms, very spacious, high ceilin...

My wife and I received a gift certificate and what a pleasant surprise it was. Couples who need time to focus on each other, look no further. This B&B was decorated to bring out its past with lots of modern amenities. Microfiber robes, big screen HDTV, full cable, iPads in every room. Port wine/chocolate service every night. Very friendly and quick service when needed, and gave lots of great recommendations for the Durham area. Eat the tikka chicken at Chubby's tacos, (thanks Colin!) We stayed in the Parrish suite, which was so cozy we cancelled our first nights plans and instead enjoyed a hot bath and champagne. Breakfast was awesome, I hope you get to try the stuffed French toast. The durham area also accommodated as a fine host with tons of great dining options (voted the "foodiest" small town in America) and great music venues. My wife and I plan on putting The King's Daughters Inn in our rotation of getaway spots. A++++

I can't recommend King's Daughter's Inn highly enough. Every room is gorgeous and unique, breakfast is delicious, the location is perfect for access to Duke/Durham, and the value is exceptional. Romantic, but also just a nice place to rest after a workday of meetings in Durham.
