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

Yes it's all true ! We can only endorse all the great reports you'll see elsewhere! Location is spot on - so close to Beale Street & lots of restaurants (Flying Fish - just downstairs is well worth a visit). Rooms are excellent - everything you could need (cooker/microwave/fridge/tv/cd player etc) - complimentary tea & coffee /cereals/milk/juice/biscotti - comfy beds/lovely... More

We were looking for something not of the chain variety and we came up with this gem! Tom and Sandy were great hosts. Tom met us at the curb and helped get our bags inside. Check in was a breeze. We just had to move the car to the off site, but very close, parking garage. Our room was perfect.... More

There's a reason why Talbot Heirs has so many glowing reviews - it deserves them. The rooms are all like mini apartments with a well-stocked kitchenette, bathroom and living area. Little extras like a bottle of beer in the fridge, snack bars and tea and coffee made it even more special. The location couldn't be more perfect. Slap bang in... More

I'd seen the door before, and seen the name, though never stayed here. My husband and I decided that Memphis would be nice for our anniversary. Talbot Heirs Guesthouse is perfectly located - across from the Peabody, a block from Huey's - right in the middle of everything. All of the rooms are upstairs - ours looked out on the... More

My husband and I just returned from a short visit to Memphis where we combined some tourist activities and family visits. A friend of ours who is a retired employee for Fed Ex advised us to stay at Talbot Heirs, a guest house located central to Memphis and its attractions. At his advice, we selected one of their eight guest... More
