“British charm in a Southern Home”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

Thanks to owner Tracy's good taste, warmth, and easy manner, a stay at the Little English Guesthouse is a treat. We stayed in the London Room, complete with a comfy 4-poster, and full bath. Decorated in an eclectic English style, this B&B is more notable for its distinctiveness compared to other American B&B's than it is for being like B&B's one finds in England. Everything is just right; nothing is overdone. Tracy promotes a convivial atmosphere in which one can mingle with fellow guests or be alone. Breakfast is a straightforward serve-yourself style, rather than the full English breakfast one might expect in London. Some nice touches: personalized key codes for getting into the home, readily available snacks and soft drinks, good parking, a pretty English garden, quiet, easy access to restaurants and major roads, and comfortable front room for reading or web browsing. We even enjoyed goofing around with a little machine in the bedroom that played soothing ocean (and other) sounds. All in all, a very pleasant sliver of the UK in FL, USA... and a doggone good night's sleep.

We were travelling and stopping in Talahassee for one night from Georgia to Mid Florida. The host Trace was very kind. It was a very good choice, the room was nicely decorated in English style (obvious) , good bed , quiet, parking space, nice hopitality and nice average breakfast. A fine place to have a stop for a night

Thank you for your positive review. Perhaps next time you're in Tallahassee, you can stay in one of our other rooms which you might find not so "old style" - we've tried to hit the mark with as many personal tastes as possible. Some of our guests want the "Visiting the old Aunt" feel, some want the lap of luxury. So....we've got the free WIFI, cable TV, body jets in the shower, no doilies, lacy things in one room and the dark wood Queen Anne dresser and armoire in another. Come try out all the rooms to get a different "flavor" of England!

I chose this place, because my wife and I are English, and we stayed in the Staffordshire Room, because my wife grew up in Staffordshire. We discovered that Tracey had spent a lot of time in Staffordshire as a student! We had a lovely couple of days, in a relaxing atmosphere. Thoroughly recommended!

(We also found that the local Publix had the largest array of British foods and treats that we had seen - much bigger than that in local Publix's!)

Thank you for your sweet words! Anniversaries are a perfect reason for a little getaway, but who needs a reason? You work hard, so take a little break and enjoy our relaxing atmosphere and try out one of the other rooms. We'll look forward to seeing you again! Just give us a ring 850 907 9777 and we'll put the kettle on!

This was a great overall experience. Tallahasee was a halfway point to our trip from New Orleans to South Fl. It was so charming and we felt like we were in our own home. They had all the immenities that anyone could need, even down to ice cream for those late nite snacks!!!
We also went to eat at the Square which is right down the road from the B&B! Tracey was so sweet with all of her recommendations. This was truly a winner all the way around....
Thanks from New Orleans!

Thank you for such high accolades! We pride ourselves in giving good value for money - which includes complimentary ice cream and soft drinks. Those "other" chain lodging establishments provide a surprise "incidentals bill" when you check out, that is NOT NICE!
Come back and see us when you're leaving New Orleans and need a getaway weekend!

What a great experience! I had never been to a bed and breakfast but other bed's and breakfast will be hard to beat after this one. Clean, cute, tucked away in beautiful NE Tallahassee and in close proximity to restaurants, this English themed bed and breakfast had me wishing for a whole week's stay. I will definitely be back for more get aways and special events.

Room Tip: The London Room is spacious and has a VERY comfortable bed.

This sweet guesthouse is a quaint way to spend a week away without paying hotel rates. It is off the beaten path, completely surprising to find, beautiful setting and graciously delightful owners (true Englishwoman, Tracey). Perfect way to host out of town guests that your own house won't hold.

Lovely, comfortable room with nice details. We felt like we'd stepped into a London home; enjoyed the decor very much. Location is good; close to everything we had in our plans to do. Tracey was so nice and very helpful with directions and recommendations for dining and shopping. Though the breakfast is not the traditional "b & b" cooked meal, it was very good--muffins, fresh fruit, cereal, juice--and the coffee was ready when we got ready for it! My daughter and I had a great experience. I would definitely stay again!
