“If you go to NOLA...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

If you are going to New Orleans, you have to stay here at least one night for the absolutely delicious breakfast! The house is spectacular, the owner is so nice, and the staff is very attentive. It is worth mentioning again...the breakfast is to die for! We had the spinach quiche with fresh fruit, and an apple turnover the first day, then, grits, fruit, and a creme brulee french toast the second day. I was in a food coma by the third day and I cannot remember what they served us, but everything was fabulous!

We stayed at the Terrell House for a quick weekend get-away. The Terrell House Bed & Breakfast MADE our trip. The house itself has the New Orleans elegance and character and is in a lovely part of town close to local transportation, but the service and cooking were really what made our experience extraordinary. The lovely ladies running the B&B were not only welcoming and friendly, but they went out of their way to be helpful. They explained how to get in and out of the city easily, and even made our dinner reservations when our original plan fell through! The breakfast was so delicious I wanted to stay another day just to enjoy the cooking one more time! I feel comfortable saying that if we had stayed anywhere else, our trip would not have been so wonderful.

We stayed here for a wedding and were very pleased. The accommodations are comfortable, the common areas lovely, and the breakfasts are plentiful and delicious.

Short drive to downtown, easy walk to trolly stop. Would definitely recommend!

While in New Orleans for the Jazz Fest, we stayed at Terrell House. This was our second time there and everything was wonderful. Its a beautiful home with quite an interesting history.
The staff is great, the breakfast is outstanding, and the location with Magazine Street and the Trolly in close by is very convienent. Looking ahead to 2014 Jazz Fest.

Just spent 3 wonderful days in New Orleans for my Son's wedding. We stayed at Terrell House which was also the location of their destination wedding. The inn is beautifully maintained and the staff was excellent. They made us feel as if it was our home for three days. The lower garden district location is ideal to access the many neighborhood shops and eateries on Magazine Street as well as being a quick cab ride away form downtown. We will definately be coming back here!

If you're thinking about getting married in the Garden District, do it at the Terrell House. Not only is it gorgeous, but the food is amazing and the staff is very accommodating and friendly. I stayed for two nights for a dear friend's wedding and could not have been happier. I was in the Yellow Room. There was nothing I was lacking and the room was right off the courtyard, which was nice. The bed was comfortable, the water pressure was excellent, and everything was very clean. I got 5 star service, complete with a tour of the property and an explanation of where everything was in the room. But you know what the best part was?? THE FOOD. Seriously, go to breakfast every morning. I know getting there at 9 AM may seem early but it's worth it. Annicka makes the food and she does a phenomenal job. Each breakfast was different and I never had a dish I disliked (which is impressive because I tend to be picky). They also catered the wedding, and the food was delicious then too. I honestly felt like I was staying at a friend's house, not at a b&b or hotel. The main breakfast area is so gorgeous as well. Everything is impeccably clean and didn't smell old in the least. There was no mold anywhere, which was wonderful given that I'm very allergic and can always sniff it out. I honestly cannot recommend this place enough. Oh and make sure to say hi to Jubilee, the cat wandering around the court yard. She's a total sweetheart! Next time I'm in NOLA, I will definitely be staying here!

Room Tip: If you don't want to climb stairs, stay in the yellow or red room; they're off the courtyard...

We loved our 3 night stay here at the Terrell House. We chose the Blue Room which is in their Carriage House. Be mindful that all rooms except two will require using steps so if you are sensitive to stairs or lugging a huge suitcase you may want to request one of the ground floor rooms. Our room was very tastefully decorated, immaculate and quiet. The fireplace is not a working fireplace. When you arrive you’ll need to find the call button at the front of the gate to be “rung in”. We were shown our room and given a basic run through on details of coming and going. We loved the lower Garden District location, however you’ll need to realize that you’ll either be walking a bit or needing to call for a cab to get around. One day we walked up Magazine Street to self tour the Garden District’s beautiful homes. When we wanted to go to the French Quarter we walked about 3 blocks to St. Charles street to catch the streetcar to the Quarter for $1.25 a ride. When we left the Quarter we either took the streetcar or the #11 bus which runs right up Magazine Street. Late at night when bus and streetcar become further spread out, you’ll want to catch a cab to return home from the Quarter which cost about $8.00. We so enjoyed the delightful courtyard where we could relax after a long day with some wine near the fountain. We didn’t have much luck locating a good wine store nearby. There is an ice machine and a shared refrigerator for guests to use. Breakfast is served at 7:30 or 8:30. You are asked which seating you prefer. You’ll sit in a gorgeous formal dining room at a communal table with some other guests. Each morning a beautiful, huge bowl of fresh fruit was offered along with different breads (scones or biscuits, etc.) and egg dishes which varied each day. We loved the delicious breakfasts and all the lovely touches. The website photos accurately depict the property. We appreciated Stanley, our cab driver, on our trip back to the airport which Linda arranged for us. In sum, we look forward to returning some day!
