We loved our stay here. Hugh and Mary are very experienced in providing a unique home away from home. Their local knowledge is exceptional and they are more than willing to spend time helping you plan your activities. The rooms are fabulous and we are more than happy to put up with any quirks in exchange for a fascinating historical home.
We found it an easy walk to any part of the French Quarter and the journey was always fascinating. We could as easily caught public transport.
It is not a place for people who want the bland perfection of the large chain hotels but this should be obvious. Stay away if you prefer this style!
For us, we can't wait to return one day and stay much longer.
A special thank you to Mary who assisted me in organising an urgent medical specialist appointment for when we arrived. She really cared about my problem and I felt that she would have done anything almost to assist me. Deeply appreciated Mary.
