“Attic Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2008

We stayed at both the Madeleine and it's sister B&B, Hacienda Nicholas, and both were fabulous. The Madeleine is a delightful mix of cultures: New Mexican warmth, beautiful Victorian house, and Indonesian artistic touches. We had the top floor under the slanted roof: a spacious and comfortable bedroom and our own sitting area as well as private bath. (It's two flights up stairs so not recommended for someone with difficulty walking.)
The amenities were just delightful. In the Madeleine, we had access to tea and coffee (throughout the day and night) and homebaked cookies and brownies. Breakfast and afternoon wine and snack were offered just across the yard at the Hacienda Nicholas. Had we planned just a day or so in advance, we could also have enjoyed a massage or facial at the Madeleine's spa. There was parking on the premisis and much of what Santa Fe has to offer (the galleries on Canyon Road, the plaza, the Santa Fe School of Cooking, and several excellent restaurants) were all within walking distance. The superb International Museum of Folk Art and the Japanese-inspired Ten Thousand Waves spa were only 5 to 10 minutes away by car.
Staff was always available for advice and directions. Everything from checking in to checking out was painless and pleasant.

This is definitely the place to stay if you are visiting Santa, Fe. This was my first experience staying at a B&B and my first review. I cant even begin to tell you how wonderful my husband and I's first wedding anniversary stay was and how it exceeded our every expectation. But i guess i should try as this is the whole point of this review. Well from reading the other reviews you already know a few things 1. The house is beautiful and comfortable 2. The staff is oh so welcoming and helpful 3. The food is de-liscious! But did you know that they are eco-conscious? And not just "Hey, we use recycled paper". Almost every detail of the Inn is sensitive to our Earth and its environment. But the best thing is that it doesn't compromise your experience one bit. They use only natural cleaning products which is not only good for the environment but your health as well. Shampoo, body wash and soap dispensers, are used instead of little bottles to reduce waste. And if you think they use cheap shampoo, think again. Surprisingly they used my favorite, Avalon Organics. Aromatherapy all the way! All the light bulbs are energy saving light bulbs, the toilets and shower heads are of the low water usage kind(don't worry the pressure is still excellent) and yes, they even recycle and compost.

I was blown away! cant wait to travel back through Santa Fe. I loved the town and loved staying at The Madeleine. Its good to see an Inn that is conscious of its actions and the impact of those actions. Five stars!

  • Liked — The food, the hospitality, the house and its envrinmental friendliness.
  • Disliked — Honestly, we loved it all!

We were in Santa Fe for a wedding(at Posada, just down the hill) and delighted to have made reservations at The Madeleine. The Inn is exceptionally lovely, the Inn-keeper and staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful, and the breakfasts were over-the-top. The best part, besides the ultra-comfy room, were the treats baked daily and set out for guests to nibble on throughout the day (and night:) The Madeleine is very affordably priced, perfectly situated only a few blocks from the central square(you wouldn't want to be closer) and now offers luscious spa treatments on the premises -- you couldn't ask for more! We'll definately bookmark The Madeleine, or brother inn - Hacienda Nicholas for any future trips to Santa Fe.

This B&B is a great place to go to get away. The setting is tranquil, the rooms are lovely, and the food (breakfast, cookies, muffins) are out of this world! There is an adjoining spa to boot! Ann, Paige, Kevin and Louis all did a great job making sure my stay was relaxing and comfortable.

This past week my husband and I went to Santa Fe, NM for a long weekend. We had selected The Madeleine for our B & B from browsing Santa Fe places to stay. We had a delightful stay. It's, as are most B & B's, a charming place and beautfully furnished. The location is perfect. It's an easy walk to the historic area of Santa Fe and at the same time in a quiet location at the end of a dead end street. We were very comfortable in our bedroom with our luxurious pillow top mattress. We had wonderful full breakfasts every morning. There was yogurt and granola, breads, muffins and a hot entree. The two mornings we were able to have the full breakfast they had french toast with cream cheese, almonds and blueberries on top and the second morning we had a spinach frittata, both being delicious. The third morning we had to leave early before breakfast to catch a plane so they let us come into the dining room and help ourselves to some bread, granola and cereal and coffee. Downstairs in the entry hall there was always coffee, tea, homebaked cookies and other treats available. One afternoon when we arrived back from exploring Santa Fe, we were helping ourselves to some tea and Kevin, the Innkeeper, said come into the kitchen and offered us cookies fresh out of the oven. The whole staff made us feel so welcome and happy to see us. They were most helpful in informing us what special things were going on that we shouldn't miss and what restaurants were outstanding. We felt completely at home at The Madeleine.

I chose this bed and breakfast based on all the reviews I read on this website. My husband and I both enjoyed our stay very much. The house is beautiful and comfortable. The rooms were very clean and we just felt right at home. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. The food was excellent as well! My husband and I LOVED Kevin's cookies-they were the best. We also took advantage of the spa services as well-we recommend it! Overall a wonderful experience and relaxing experience.

The Madeleine is a quiet, peaceful B&B located at the end of a city street, just a stone's throw from the plaza. The atmosphere is relaxing, calming and you awake to singing birds and a tranquility comparable to a country B&B. The main house is charming with reading material, antique furnishings and snacks/drinks at any hour. We stayed in the Forsythia in the cottage and savored the fireplace and daybed, as well as the King bed and spacious private bath. Right outside our door was a lovely courtyard with rocking chairs that offered a perfect location to curl up with a book. The breakfasts were magnificent with scrumptous food and compelling company gathered around big wooden tables. The evening wine and snacks were perfect before a dinner on the town. Oh, and the cookies...well, they were the best cookies I have ever tasted.
The Spa was steps away from our door and we enjoyed a couples massage that melted away any stress that entered with us.
This B&B is a must for any B&B lover. Don't leave Santa Fe without a dinner at Thai Cafe (great prices, great curry) followed by an evening of entertainment at the Vanessie piano bar just a block away from the Thai restaurant. Great tunes, great singing and great audience interaction make up for the over-priced drinks/appetizers.
If we ever return to Santa Fe, we'll repeat on all accounts.
