“We had a wonderful time with a few disappointments.”
Reviewed February 21, 2009

We had a really good time with the people we encountered at the Coombs House and the staff was very friendly. We were disappointed that our bathrooms were never cleaned after we arrived and we stayed three nights. We had fresh towels each day but the sheets were never changed and the bed was remade very hapharzardly. The ice bucket never had the plastic liner changed and we never had fresh glasses provided. Requests had to be made for more tissues instead of them realizing the box was empty when providing clean towels. Also, the breakfast was not gourmet like we have experienced in other B & B's.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay for a much needed romantic weekend. We stayed in the Hemingway and it was really cozy and private. We had our own seperate entry so we didn't disturb anyone. We had a little trouble getting reservations for dinner but we ended up having a late dinner at the Magnolia Grill and it was well worth it. We had the best prime rib ever. They had many special menus but I highly recommend the Magnolia Grill. We wanted to try the Owl Cafe also but didn't have enough time. We are planning another trip soon!

  • Liked — The room was very nice and private
  • Disliked — Very busy at breakfast

We spent our 25 th Aniversary Night here and enjoyed our stay thoroughly. Staff was most helpful and answered any questions we had about the City. The Coombs Inn was very detailed and Elegant. Snacks were on hands and Breakfast was great with fresh fruit and eggs to order.

One of the best Restaurants in the Panhandle was just three blocks away. We'll be back....... The Jordan's, Havana, FL

One of the best B & B's I've stay in. The bed was beautifully hand carved and the whirlpool tub was large and comfortable with a stained glass window next to it. The owners have done a great job restoring this victorian. I would recommend this to everyone.

  • Liked — the room
  • Disliked — wireless internet only available in the main house. We were in the second house

Step one hundred years into the past complete with superb personal
attention. We ran into travel difficulty which forced us to telephone the manager and tell her that we would be hours late. Her only response was "drive carefully" and I'll be waiting for you with hot tea and warm cookies."
