We were here for four nights and have never stayed at such a characterful and atmospheric place. OK, the bathroom fittings are not the most modern, but they work and are more than amply offset by the beautiful rooms filled with family treasures. We stayed in the same room that F. Scott Fitzgerald had when he went there to write.... More

Do you want to go to a place to escape Wi-Fi? TV? Then Welbourne is your place. It is a Bed and Breakfast that is also a working farm that has been owned by the same family for generations. Renowned novelists F. Scott Fitzgerald and Thomas Wolfe not only visited Welbourne, but wrote about it. Soak up the history, especially... More

While I have intended to write a review of Welbourne for some time, I now feel compelled to post in response to the absolutely preposterous review recently submitted by Mr. Rawnsley. You sir are the one who should be ashamed- your ridiculous statements regarding the cleanliness of the rooms are only bested by your ignorant and prejudicial comments about Welbourne's... More

Welbourne's the worst B&B and hotel in which I've ever stayed. Dirty, shabby, decrepit upstairs (but very elegant downstairs) then the manager was rude and tried to cheat us on our bill, our bed was unmade on arrival, our bedroom door was locked from the outside (illegal fire hazard), the 2 thin single mattresses on our "king" bed constantly slid...

I have delayed in responding to this review until I could be calm enough about the following issue to address it. While in some sense I understand your objections that I address below, I am deeply troubled by your comments about our staff. That you mention their race is unacceptable, particularly while in the same breath alluding to the most... More

OK, this is the old South, and it is frayed at the edges. But, it is also part of our (USA) history. The accomodations are basic but interesting. The building itself is fascinating especially the library (see the papers granting officer-ship in the Confederate Army) and the Dining Room. We had a delicious silver service breakfast, and loved just wandering... More

The place has character. It has charm. But it's not clean, which is just unacceptable in my mind. I imagine it costs a lot of money to keep up an inn such as the Welbourne, but I do not think it would cost the owners much to invest in some new, clean sheets and towels. These simple things would have... More

"Only the cool people stray here" is how Welbourne was described by one guest - a professional poet - to other guests. Big, sprawling, quirky and completely authentic down to the tiniest Antebellum detail. Straying here like living as a member of the extended family in some PG Wodehouse story set in an aging English manor. Excellent breakfast, hundreds of... More

My daughter and I stayed as part of a wedding party. The "farmer's wife was gracious enough to take us on a tour of this magnificent property.We watched the hunt and enjoyed the hospitality of our hosts.

This was a wonderful- quintessential bed and breakfast! My husband and I stayed for our wedding anniversary and had a blast! The house has aged beautifully and is well kept. We very much enjoy American history and this house gave exactly what we were looking for. We loved how inclusive the atmosphere in the house was, were everyone knew each... More

When I phoned for reservations, Nat told me "Welbourne is a home, not a hotel, so if no one is here, just go into the front hall and there'll be a note on the table telling you where your room is. Cocktails are at 7." Yes, Welbourne is an authentic historic home, and you are a paying guest not a... More
