“Natchez' version of Tara”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Monmouth Plantation in Natchez must be what Tara was in the classic movie of the Old South, Gone With The Wind. We have stayed at Monmouth on two occasions, most recently for three days in Eliza's suite that features a large bedroom, large parlor and two baths on the second floor. Eat your heart out, Scarlett O'Hara. Monmouth has changed quite a bit since our last stay. The new owners have added the very posh 1818 restaurant, perhaps the best dining experience in Natchez. There are more rooms and a very expansive breakfast facility that is separate from the Big House. During our visit, a large contingent of English tourists stopped for a night, dinner and breakfast. Monmouth is close to all of the exciting attractions in Natchez. It includes wonderful gardens. Roosevelt tends bar from 3 to 10. Visitors enjoy drinks and snacks prior to dinner. Breakfast is tasty and plentiful. Even the grits taste good. Monmouth dates to the early 1800s and is the grande dame of the antebellum mansions that cover the landscape. If you have to pick one place to stay for one night or three, Monmouth is your best bet.

Room Tip: If you are looking for Clark Gable/Scarlett O'Hara luxury, choose Eliza's Suite. You can fin...

We stayed at the Monmouth Plantation for one night. The place was almost charming. I stayed in the main house upstairs 2nd floor in the room on the right at the front of the house. It was shabby chic - not what I expected from a 4 diamond place. The room was underwhelming and I had been excited for an antebellum feel. But what I felt was wondering if the room was clean. The bathtub had black mold around the interior - so gross. I told them about it but they were disinterested. The bathroom was tiny for two people and up a step. I kind of felt like I got a bottom of the category room and it was in the antebellum category. It felt like a standard or below type room. The grounds are lovely and the breakfast was yummy. But I would not stay here again.

Room Tip: Read all of the reviews - but they won't confirm the room only the room type. Just stay somewher...

At the last minute we made reservations here on a cross country road trip. From the minute we drove up to the Inn, we began to relax. The staff was most pleasant and our room was a special treat that evoked visions from the 1800's, but with many modern conveniences in the bathroom. Hair dryer, etc. Dinner was in the Main dining room with other guests at the antique table. A lively conversation with travelers from many places in the country. The grounds and gardens were lovely and relaxing, and breakfast in the "Garden Room" was delightful. Of course the weather made the entire site a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend this Inn.

Room Tip: Cottages look private and special

Elegant buildings – exquisite antique furniture – gracious bedrooms – fine dining restaurant – landscaped grounds – what more do you want? Well, value for money I guess. Did it deliver? On balance, yes. We paid $600 with tax for 2 nights in an upstairs suite with a king bed and separate sitting room and large bathroom (with walk-in shower) located in an external building away from the main house. I’d say, given the relaxed and charming surroundings, it was probably worth the money. The on site restaurant 1818 is splendid and the barman, called Roosevelt the night we stayed, made heroic mint juleps. The breakfast was the best I had out of 5 different hotels I visited on our trip around Mississippi and Louisiana. Incidentally, a car is a must as the inn is some distance from Natchez center. However, Monmouth definitely has the feel good factor and worth the price for unbridled luxury. And by the way - they like to call it Monmouth Historic Inn not Monmouth Plantation!!.

Monmouth plantation has pretty grounds but is not worth the price. The overall feel is gimmicky. We stayed for one night in May in a deluxe suite. The room was clean. Yet, the television was out of date and the bed was uncomfortable. We ordered room service and had a bad experience. Our salads tasted fishy yet we ordered chicken. Our food came late and the cheesecake as subpar. The parking next to our suite was also tight which we did not appreciate. If we had to do it again, we would have stayed closer to downtown for a better value at a bed and breakfast.

We live about 100 miles away and visited Natchez this week for a short break staying at the Monmouth Plantation for the first time. From the very welcoming check-in to the equally warm check-out , the whole experience was wonderful. We stayed in one of the cottages away from the main house - it was very comfortable, king bed & first class en suite bathroom - AC was quiet and effective . We had an excellent dinner at the reasonably priced 1818 restaurant and hearty breakfast which incidentally is included in the room rate.
If you are looking for a peaceful location with interesting history and charming attentive staff Monmouth Plantation is the place to go - we will be back..

Room Tip: Set in 25+ acres of wooden grounds all of the accommodations offer good locations - we stayed in a c...
