We stayed here for 2 nights in August while attending the PGA Championship. We stayed in the West suite. We have stayed in quite a few B & B's over the years and looked forward to staying in another during our stay in Louisville. Unfortunately what we experienced was not what most of the reviewers for TripAdvisor have experienced. The house is beautiful with its old charm and furnishings. Location was great for our purposes. That's pretty much where the positive aspects end.
The room needed a good cleaning, the queen size mattress was old and saggy. The extra pillow in the closet was on the dusty floor with its ripped pillowcase.
Compared to all the other B&Bs we've stayed in, breakfast was far from stellar. There was buffet-style offerings of yogurt, blueberries, cereal, some sort of pre-fabbed egg on toast. Nothing was offered in the way of cooked to order. That is a big minus for a B&BREAKFAST.
We enjoyed our stay in Louisville with its lively downtown. The PGA venue was wonderful, but we won't be staying at the Bashford Manor if we return. It's a shame since we do like to support locally owned businesses like this.
