We paid $20. Per person for the 10 am tour. What a disappointment. The tour was tragically dull. and the guide gave very little info about the home or the family that lived there. Multiple questions about the home and it’s furnishings went unanswered. Overall the property is in bad need of a proper cleaning and further refurbishment. We saw only about four rooms of the home, none of which were remarkable. We did not lodge in this home nor eat in the restaurant, so no review for that. We felt like it was a waste of our time and money.
Beautiful gardens and I loved the tour here. Our rooms smelled a bit damp but with the humidity I can imagine that. The best part of this hotel though is the staff, from the people at the reception, the lovely lady that gave us a tour, and the ladies at breakfast: you are doing an amazing job!
The house tour was worthless and a disappointment. The house tour costs $20 per person. the docent was twenty minutes late. All you get to see is a hall, the dining room and the bar. The bar had a beautiful chest that the docent did not bother to open. A much better option is to have drinks in the bar. The drinks were excellent and the bartender opened the interesting chest for us that the docent did not bother to open. Dinner was good, but not necessary to see the dining room. If you have drinks, you will be able to see everything that the house tour provides. the tour was definitely not worth it. Dinner and drinks were worth it.
The location is lovely but the Inn and cottages are in need of some major investment. Check in was ok and we were directed to cottage no 7 - no help was offered for bags etc Access to the cottage was up steps and an uneven path, not easy to manage. The accommodation was dingy, in need of redecoration and a thorough clean. The bed had a tendency to push you into the middle, the bathroom needed upgrading, the lighting was poor. There was no fridge and no ice in the ice machine at the back of the hotel, no pen, no paper. Make your own bed if staying for more than one night. On the plus side there was a plastic bag of fresh towels hung on the outside door handle. Dinner was good but not inexpensive. Breakfast was another experience altogether. Very limited menu ( see photo) avoid the french bread option and located in a separate building. The mansion itself is not up to the standards, nor indeed the interest, of the Rosalie, Longwood or Magnolia Hall . If we had to pay extra fro the tour of the house I would have wanted my $ back. The general condition of the cottages and grounds are poor, much is overgrown and badly in need of some TLC and significant investment. This Historic Inn should be great and its not. Please see some of the photos I took. I tried to find someone to speak to but the lady at the check in desk was relatively new and did not have the authority nor knowledge to help.…
We stayed at the Monmouth for one night on a road trip from Nashville down to New Orleans. It was awesome from the start not least because of a tornado going through some 20 miles north - the most amazing electric storm I have ever seen! The property is secluded and very beautiful. We were in the main building in a room with a four poster bed and lovely antique furniture. We ate at the restaurant and used the bar - very attentive service and I recall the food being lovely. The gardens are amazing and well worth a walk around (the storm had passed the next morning). We went for the tour around the property which was undertaken very professionally and charmingly by a young lady. With retrospect, I wish that we had spent more time at the Monmouth and in Natchez. The hotel is charming as appears the town itself.…
We were dismayed by our stay here. The room appeared magnificent but paper was peeling from the walls, curtains were dusty, paintwork was peeling (and had been for some time), the garden was overgrown and weedy - apart from the area for weddings - and the balcony outside the room was dirty. It also had only one rocking chair so there went the fantasy of a mint julep together at sunset! The breakfast was weird with one very friendly member of staff and one decidedly snippy. Different items were available on different days and you certainly couldn't change things around (eg bacon for sausage). There was no space in the dining room for us to have dinner so we had a very enjoyable evening in a great place by the river - Magnolia.
First of all the grounds and the overall impression of the property are magnificent. It's truly beautiful. It was lovely to walk around the grounds and have a swing in the chairs, walk over the little bridge etc. It's just lovely. We stayed one night en route to Memphis from New Orleans. The welcome was great and our room was ready. It was lovely and we slept well but there are a few things that need to be done. It's all very well keeping everything "historic" and to the original decor, but that does not mean that some of the cleanliness should be ignored. The patio outside our room was in dire need of a proper clean as the stones were very slippy from the moss; the outside furniture could do with a clean. The sofa really could do with a proper upholster as it's practically impossible to sit on it. The bathroom is finished in totally out of character lighting and laminate flooring whereas nice tiles would be so much more characterful and more in keeping with the site as a whole. We were hoping to have the tour of the house at 2pm but when we turned up we were told as there had been a cruise party earlier that meant that the 2pm tour was cancelled which was a huge disappointment and surely paying guests shouldn't be ignored in favour of passing trade. We were offered a tour at 10am the following morning but that wasn't possible due to our onward travel. That really didn't seem fair. The meal in the main restaurant was delicious and beautifully presented but did lack a little atmosphere. The breakfast the next morning was a bit disappointing. Unfortunately my husband picked up a yogurt which was weeks out of date. He had not realised this so when he opened the pot, there was mould all over the yogurt - not a good start. The menu choices depend on what day you are there and we just didn't feel it was as good as it could have been. This is a beautiful property but it can't rest on its laurels and needs to keep standards up to date.…
Wonderful place , Restaurant 1818. Beautifully decorated, staff was excellent, food was amazing. Had fried green tomatoes which were the best I’ve ever had, lightly breaded. Corn chowder was very good. I had the pork chops & my husband had the roasted duck. Warm white choc bread pudding was delicious. Recommend highly!!!
The entire staff was outstanding from the reservation throughout every step of the way! Chef Mike is fantastic in Restaurant 1818, Shanondra,Michelle,Da’Nasia all took super care of our entire group. Friendly staff will go over and beyond the call of duty! All employees are courteous and proud of what they do.
This beautiful home sits on the outskirts of Natchez and is close to town but NOT in town. We were in Room 42 Springfield which was a lovely accommodation. The Inn's Garden's were in need of some TLC but it's still a very charming Inn. Their restaurant was excellent and their prices were reasonable. A full breakfast is provided.
