I chose the Talbot Heirs because of it's central down-town location. Being unfamiliar with Memphis, I figured being across the street from the Peabody, it had to be okay. The proprietors were most helpful regarding parking and bring our luggage up to the second floor suites. While I was a bit fearful on entering the dimly lit hall, lined with... More

This is such a central location in Memphis, only two blocks from Beale Street. The suites are huge (even numbers have a separate bedroom, odd ones don't) and really well set up. Tom and Sandy are really friendly and informative and are on hand to help most of the day.

Have just returned to London from my stay at the Talbot Heirs Guesthouse. The suite which we had was absolutely brilliant and full of charm and character. Sandy and Tom went out of their way to make sure we were looked after. I'd recommend this place to anyone. It's proximity to Beale Street, Sun Studios, the Gibson guitar factory and... More

Stayed here for 2 nights & it really surpassed all expectations. The accommodation was super comfy, the location unbeatable & Tom & Sandy were warm & knowledgeable hosts. All of which culminated in a fantastic stay in Memphis.

A great place. Super friendly, convenient, clean, comfortable. Jerry was super helpful. It's a great location, parked the car and walked to all the fun spots. Memphis is a fun location and staying here made everything so easy. We will return!

My wife and I spent 2 nights in August and our host, Tom, could not have been nicer. He was on top of everything - emailing us re our arrival time so he could assist us in carrying our luggage to the room, filling us in on things to do and see in Memphis since this was our first visit,... More

Wonderful place! Accommodations were charming. Our party had rooms #3 (loved the shower) and #5. This was the last leg on a whirlwind TN trip and it was a perfect place to rest and regroup before exploring Memphis. Tom helped map out our visit to get the most of our short time in Memphis. Even managed to fit in a... More

We stayed in suite N°5 and we had a wonderful stay. Talbot Heirs is located across from the famous Peabody Hotel, conveniently close to downtown attractions. It is quiet and peaceful on the second floor of a building on Second Street SW. There is an "at home" feel in this guesthouse. Tom & Sandy Franck, the owners/managers are warm hosts.... More

The reviews on Tripadvisor gave us high hopes for Talbot Heirs and our experience, if anything, exceeded expectations. We’d arrived rather early having travelled on the night train from Chicago but Tom was at the door ready to welcome us and haul our suitcase up the stairs. While we sat in his office, chatting, Sandy joined us and made tea.... More

Talbot Heirs Guesthouse is a gem find. Great location in close proximity to Beal Street and major downtown Memphis attractions. Managers Sandy and Tom are the most welcoming and friendliest of people. They are very hands on and attentive to ensure their guests are comfortable with the accommodation and with getting around the downtown area. The Guesthouse is definitely nothing... More
