“Lovely welcome for cyclists”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

My husband and I enjoyed 3 lovely days with Wendy. Very comfortable room with terrific breakfasts and evening treats. Wendy is a very accomodating hostess: flexible breakfast times, our favorite newspaper and a place to accomodate our bicycles. The inn is across from a nice city park and just a few blocks from the Greenway bike trail along the Roanoke River. An nice neighborhood restaurant is within walking distance and downtown Roanoke is just a few blocks further. We have recommended Rose Hill to our friends.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the garden room, streetside, sunny and quiet. Private bath is not adjoining, but close...

For our first B&B experience we hit the jackpot. Someone else wrote it was like staying with a favorite relative and I couldn't agree more. Wendy couldn't make you feel more comfortable or important unless you called her Mom. Ironed sheets that smell like lavender, breakfasts with fresh made muffins across from a beautiful city park. Great B&B in a beautiful city.

Room Tip: Garbo room has an ensuite bathroom

My wife and I and another couple stayed at Rose Hill in mid October, 2012. We were welcomed by Wendy and she did a great job making us feel welcome and comfortable. We enjoyed cookies, tea and hot cider in adition to two swell breakfasts. Wendys recommendation to visit the 'Market' downtown was a hit with the ladies.
Great location in a very nice city. Its very quiet here. Even out on the front porch in the sun.
We will return to Rose Hill next time we are in the area.
Thanks again Wendy!

Room Tip: Any of the rooms would suit us just fine.

Beautiful home in a fabulous location. We stayed in the Garbo room which had the most comfortable bed & the biggest bathroom I've ever seen! Fantastic breakfasts, Wendy prepared cookies & cakes for snacking and very thoughtfully brought up a jug of iced water with biscuits every evening which was much appreciated. It was lovely to be a part of this wonderful happy home & to meet her gorgeous grandson Lionel. Wendi went out of her way to make sure our stay was the most memorable. Couldn't fault anything and would definitely recommend.

I am actually a Roanoke local who has lived in the area for over 10 years. I heard about Rose Hill from a customer who came into my store last month raving about the most phenomenal breakfast she had just eaten. We discussed her stay and I decided it might be a nice one night get away for my fiancee and I who, because of his new job, won't be afforded any extended vacation time in the near future. We arrived at Rose Hill on Saturday afternoon around 3pm to the smell of freshly baked cookies. Wendy was oh so pleasant and informed us that we had arrived just in time for afternoon tea. We sat on the porch swing and enjoyed delicious treats and refreshments while admiring the beautiful park directly across the street. The house was immaculate and our room oh so comfortable. Breakfast was even better than the woman in my store had described and I don't think we ate anything the rest of the day on Sunday. We will definitely be back for a visit and would recommend Rose Hill to anyone looking to be pampered in the comfort of a home away from home.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Garbo Room and loved it!

Wendy is an incredible hostess, not only does she immediately make you feel that you made the right choice, but she will prove it to you. Best beds, best personality and best food yet!! Thanks Wendy and Lionel for such a wonderful experience. It was like staying with your favorite relatives!!! I recommend her comfortable place and her charming personality to everyone. We had a great time and we'll be back!! Reg and Melissa Pinkerton

Room Tip: The Garbo Room is particularly charming with its own private bath attached.

Only stayed one night before our next stop, but our lovely experience here set the tone for the entire vacation trip. Afternoon tea by Wendy is extraordinary--and it's served on far better china & tableware than we use at home! We stayed in the "Garbo" suite, which was spacious, attractive and very quiet. Found a night-time snack of brownies and a carafe of water left outside our door. Breakfast was delightful (French toast for me, yea!). I would have to disagree with <travelmom42> because I found the premises well-maintained, secure and completely congenial. Wendy had other guests, but the place was restful at night and full of interesting conversation during the day. The huge public park across the street is a plus for walking off the outstanding breakfast and snacks. Due to my own oversight, we left my spouse's favorite jacket in the "Garbo's" closet. However, Wendy & her lovely daughter not only kept it safe for us, they were happy to have us swing by three days later en route to the airport & retrieve the jacket, even though it was during the B&B's "private" time. All in all, a wonderful stay that we've talked about since returning home!

Room Tip: Let Wendy pick--she has a good instinct for her guests.
