“Old Time Charmer”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

Everyone was very pleasant throughout our stay. We had a nice room on the 7th floor which afforded a nice view of the river. While there are many places to stay in Natchez we chose the Eola because of its slightly faded opulence. I love a place like this. Reminiscent of the old days. The beds were nice and linens were clean. The hotel shows its age but you can still catch glimpses of its former glory. The food in the restaurant was good also. Help an old lady out-come stay a few nights at the Natchez Eola!

Room Tip: Higher floors have the better view of the Mississippi River.

Loved our stay in this beautiful old charmer.

Our room was very cosy with a large balcony looking towards the Mississippi River in the distance .

Ate in the restaurant. Waitress ( Tammy ) was great and food very nice. Then adjourned to the bar & enjoyed playing some good old tunes on an original Wirlitzer Juke Box.

Fun couple of nights; we were sad to wave goodbye to this charming old lady

Spent two nights in this Grand old hotel on a tour.
Loved the decor and the service was great ( old southern hospitality at its best ), room and bathroom were clean and beds were very comfortable. Would recommend.

This was booked for a convention in April. The price given earlier for room rates increased for the convention. The hotel elevator is brass & has not been cleaned/polished for some time. An extra $10 per night will get you a mini fridge. Extra charges made the stay not pleasant. I would look for a more updated place to stay. Front desk was understaffed & not over friendly.

I have been a guest of the main Natchez Eola Hotel. My overnight stay was back in the early 1990's and, as many reviewers have noted, the public rooms are beautiful but the actual guest rooms are quite disappointing. Our room was very small and was apparently next to a noisy water pipe. Hoping changes had been made to the hotel, five years ago, by a happy accident, I was going to Natchez and booked at room at what we thought was the main hotel only to be told that the room we booked was actually in The Natchez Eola Guest House, on the corner across the street. This beautiful property has a wrap-around porch with beautiful white wicker furniture. The manager was wonderful and quite personable. There are 16 rooms in the guest house and our room, The William Martin Room, was directly next to the check-in desk. The period furniture in the room is breathtaking! The room was large with an ample bathroom and lavatory. A large, flat-screen television with cable channels was there for our entertainment. French doors opened directly onto the porch with two of the lovely wicker chairs and a small table were there for early morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening. There are a couple of beautiful sitting rooms, one of which has a coffee bar that is "serve yourself" unless the delightful manager is there to serve you. There are an assortment of coffees and teas and this is where the wine is available in the evening. When you go to the main Natchez Eola Website, there is a link that says "Also visit our: Guest House". It is so small you might miss it, but it currently is on the left-hand side of the page. Needless to say, I highly recommend the Natchez Eola Guest House over the main hotel. I guarantee you will be delighted with your stay and will yearn to return to Natchez and the Eola Guest House!

Room Tip: Our room, The William Martin Room, is the only room we have enjoyed on both of our stays. It is qui...

We went as part of a coach group tour. We arrived to warm cookies and juice. Nanchez was like a ghost town as it was Memorial Day,a public holiday in U S A. The hotel served us dinner. A couple of complaints from group but my fish was lovely. The waitress happily moved two extra tables so we could sit with our new friends. Two of the chairs were wobbly , this amused us. perhaps reflecting th The hotel has lovely old furniture and statues. The staff were helpful and cheerful. Breakfast was limited in choice but the biscuits and gravy were lovely. A treat for Brits as we do not have this at home. My husband and I loved it

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the river. We had a room facing the road but it was charming

First impressions count, and the courtyard and lobby areas of the hotel are spectacular - very beautifully furnished in period style. Pity about the guest rooms, small and cramped with tiny bathroom and hard to adjust shower. The breakfast was poor - hot food was cold, and very difficult to get milk for cereal, coffee etc. Tiny 10 ml long life half/half just doesn't cut it when you have to get a dozen of them for a decent serve. Luckily we only spent a minimum amount of time in the room, the drinks in the courtyard made up for it. There is no guest laundry, but the wifi is free!
