“Great stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2011

We have just returned to the UK after 4 weeks of travelling in Virginia, North and South Carolina and can honestly say that we would like to have spent more time in Wilmington. Sean was very welcoming and informative on our arrival and we soon met Tricia and Bob who are really lovely people. Their home is beautiful and very conveniently situated for all the town has to offer....and there is a lot. Much more than we thought or had time for.
The breakfasts were amazing and their suggestions for trips, restaurants and onward travel plans were really helpful.
We loved it and will visit again one day.

We had such a great stay. Loved the rooms, the area, the owners, the food. we had a wedding to go to, all in walking distance, to all of the festivities. The whole Family of the groom stayed @ the inn.

I'll start by saying that this was our first time staying at a B&B. I'd always been reluctant to stay in someone else's home. This experience changed my thinking about B&Bs.
The inn-keepers, Bob and Trisha, made us feel very welcome from the moment we set foot into their beautiful, historic home.
The room was very large and comfortable, but bright. The window shades didn't do much to block the morning light. If you're not an early riser, pack some eye shades.
Breakfast was incredible. Each day we were treated to a remarkable feast of fresh ingredients prepared in a manner that would be suitable for royalty. They even made sure to provide alternatives for dietary restrictions and allergies. Fantastic!
The inn is conveniently located only a few blocks from Wilmington's famous river walk, teaming with restaurants, shopping, sight-seeing tours, and live music.

Room Tip: Make your reservations by phone.

What a wonderfully charming and romantic little piece of heaven!! Look no farther, as this little inn is simply superb!! Feels as if you stepped back into a little history. This historic inn is absolutely one of our favorite places we have stayed. The inn keepers were fabulous and the gourmet breakfasts were better than a 5 star restaurant!! We enjoyed Carolina, Kure, Wrightsville, and Topail Beaches while in Wilmington. By staying at the Rosehill, you can enjoy fabulous restaurants, sunsets, and some good nightlife at night while relaxing on the coast during the day.

When on vacation from the UK we were travelling around Virgina and North Carolina only booking one stay ahead. We researched whilst on our travels for accommadation with good reviews and were pleased to find that there was a vacancy for the 2 nights. Tricia and Bob were very welcoming and the room was so comfotable. Bottled water and chocolates left in the room everyday and the help yourself night time brandy on the porch was a lovely touch. The location is very handy only a few minutes walk from the atmospheric waterfront where there are plenty of good restaurants to choose from. The breakfasts were great, fresly cooked and varied with good coffee.

Bob, Tricia, and Shane made our stay a delight as always. This was our third stay at Rosehill Inn and I hope it won't be our last but we don't get there often now.

They bend over backwards to accommodate dietary restrictions if known and the rooms are exceptionally clean.

One of the best B&B's.

Bob, the owner, is a very nice man (his wife and son also are innkeepers). He is engaging in conversation and can recommend several great places to eat. The home itself is a large older home in downtown Wilmington that has been very well taken care of and preserved.
We enjoyed our stay at Rosehill and the owner's were nice, but felt uncomfortable within the surroundings. You cannot have food of any kind in your rooms. Check out is at 11am and as we were walking out the door of our room at 11:10am, the phone rang and the person on the other end said, "this is just a reminder that check out is at 11am." I thought that was unnecessary. Everything is locked so your can't just find yourself an extra towel. Parking is limited and can be somewhat challenging on the street. Breakfast was not good. At the dining table one morning, a guest drank from his glass and sat it back on the table which was not covered by a table cloth. One of the innkeeper's reached past the guest and moved the guest's glass over to a coaster. (I thought that was completely uncalled for.)
There is a great porch across the front with swings for enjoying the afternoons and the location is great for enjoying downtown without having to drive everywhere.
The Rosehill Inn was elegant, but you are not made to feel at home at all! Even as adults, we felt like children in a store that could not touch anything for fear your hand may get slapped.
