“A Quiet Oasis in NOLA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Guy and Nancy, proprietors of The Sully Mansion exemplify the spirit of New Orleans hospitality.
From the wonderful array of breakfast offerings, to tips on where to go, what to see and where to eat, they help make your NOLA stay a memorable one. Gracie, their dog will always welcome you back with an enthusiastic tail wag, after a long day of sightseeing.
We shall return !

From the moment we walked through the gate and up to the entrance we thoroughly enjoyed this Garden District mansion B&B with its comfortable rooms and gracious hosts Nancy and Guy. The daily morning coffee awaiting us outside our room was a great way to start the day followed by a delicious breakfast excellently prepared. Our hosts were always happy to provide suggestions on the best way (usually the block away St. Charles streetcar) on how to get to the attractions we wanted to see and shared their knowledge of the New Orleans music venues. Nice courtyard out back to relax in before and after a busy day of sightseeing. Would stay here again.

The Sully Mansion and its hosts, Guy and Nancy, made our trip to New Orleans everything we hoped it would be. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable with every amenity you could need. Their suggestions for day trips, meals and transportation choices were spot on!. The location, a block off the street car line, and in the midst of a beautiful neighborhood was perfect. Of course Gracie, the resident pooch, made us smile and miss our own girls a little less each day. The location of the inn, the graciousness of the hosts and the wonderful breakfasts make me say it was the perfect choice for us.

In our travels throughout the world, our preference is staying in B &B's because of the personal bonds and guidance that we often get from the owners. While the Sully Mansion is a well located, gracious home in the Garden District of New Orleans, it's owners, Nancy and Guy were distant, insulting, rude and insensitive. Rather than being sympathetic to my partner's hearing loss, Guy icily quipped "how close do I have to stand near you for you to hear me?" When we told them that the shower water turns cold in the midst of showering, they arrogantly Implied that we were lying. While proud of their home, the quality of the breakfasts were inferior with overlooked sausages, dry and heavy muffins and some inedible baked biscuit concoction. Thankfully there was fresh fruit and the coffee was good. It is a shame that the imperious demeanor of the owners ruin such a lovely property. A course in charm school would help.

No owner of a bed and breakfast likes to see a review like this of their establishment. We hope the users of Trip Advisor will see how unusual it is to have a guest feel they were treated poorly or that the food was 'inedible' or problems with the accommodations. Despite our efforts to meet to their demands or respond to their criticisms (including their view the pump for the shampoo was too far from their hands) clearly they were not happy and we hope they find a place which meets their expectations on their next trip to New Orleans.

Nancy and Guy were absolutely top-notch hosts. They helped me plan a perfect intimate wedding ceremony at their B&B. Even with the threat of tropical storm Karen, everything turned out just the way I wanted. The B&B has several spots for a small ceremony; we had 15 people, but they can also do larger parties of 50-60. Nancy helped me every step of the way, with great advice for florists, officiants, and jewelers. We spent two nights at Sully for a 'mini-moon' as well. Beautiful rooms, delicious breakfast, and perfect location in the Garden District. We will definitely be back for an anniversary celebration!

Went to celebrate the wifes birthday along with another couple ordered the wine basket and emailed our arrival time
What I received for 60.00 was we were handed a bottle of wine in the kitchen with a srewcap no chocolates and not told of the flowers hidden in the window. Very nice place to see once but will try other b&b's in the area next time

We know it is fun to write little zingers in Trip Advisor Reviews but felt this one deserved a response. The wine was a good sauvignon blanc and it was chilling in the refrigerator when the guests arrived. We handed it to them along with extra wine glasses so they could enjoy the wine in the courtyard with their friends as soon as they were checked in their room. We have double checked our records and found no request for chocolates or we would have provided the locally made sweets from a chocolatier up the road as we always do. The couple traveled with friends and we helped them select restaurants and bars and day trips to the Northshore and thought they were having a wonderful time as our guests. We respect some guests may not like our food, or want us to interact more with them or less with them or wish we were closer to the French Quarter or serev3e afternoon sherry - but we take our wines and flowers seriously felt the need to set the record straight.

Seven of us stayed at Sully Mansion for 4 nights and we occupied most of the rooms. Location is great and convenient to restaurants and the Street Cars. Rooms that had been renovated were lovely but some rooms had antiquated bathroom. Breakfast was good the first morning then went downhill after that. Guy and Nancy were helpful but not very friendly. We all thought they were very standoffish. They seemed put upon when asked for anything. One evening about 5pm. we needed assistance and they had closed their door and did not answer when we knocked.after we returned from dinner they were still not available. We should have been told this beforehand. We have all traveled extensively and have stayed in many B&B's. We would not return to this one nor would we recommend it to family or friends.
