Reviewed May 8, 2013

We booked a room on the second floor of the main building. The climb was too steep so the staff moved us to one of the cottages. The cottage is nicely furnished with a large front porch with rocking chairs. It was a very comfortable place to return after a long day of sightseeing around Natchez. The inn is a bit pricey and only makes sense if one is to stay more than one day in the Natchez area. The inn serves a very nice southern style breakfast. It also offers afternoon cocktails with a limited selection of appetizers and fairly expensive drinks. The staff was congenial and helpful. The main drawback to our cottage was the bathroom. An oversized spa type bathtub dominates the bathroom. The shower is narrow. The spa tub looked difficult to get in and out of - so we used the shower. We did take the morning tour of the inn and learned about the origins of the plantation home. Overall, a nice stay.

Room Tip: Cottages are relatively secluded and quiet.

We just spent 1 night at Monmouth in May on a tour through LA, MS, and AL.

The entire hotel is absolutely gorgeous. The staff is amazing, the rooms are comfortable and unique, and the breakfast (we didn’t eat dinner), and drinks were perfect!

If you go, make sure you take a bit of time to walk around the grounds. Also make sure to go to happy hour to meet Roosevelt! He was so friendly and makes an amazing mint julep!

Would definitely recommend to anyone traveling in the area!

We stayed at the main house and loved the well preserved athmosphere of older times, without compromising on the quality of the bathroom and the wifi connection ;)

John Quitman's bed (room 22) was large enough for two tall dutchies, the matrass was a bit sagged, but we didn't mind.
Both breakfast and dinner in the lounge were great quality just like the cocktails !
Monmouth is a perfect place to rest and relax and enjoying a bit of history.

Monmouth Plantation
We were very comfortable. The room was big, the bathroom large and clean. The garden, or shall I say the gardens simply magnificent. Our breakfast was excellent. M-mm, nobody can make biscuits like they do it down South!
I am taking a point off for peeling paint.
Great place to stay!

We stayed at Monmouth Plantation as part of a 15 night tour of the Southern US states. The team in the bar and restaurant were fantastic, the room was beautiful and the setting was fantastic. We arrived late afternoon and enjoyed drinks in the courtyard as the sun set. We ate in, and dinner was delicious, the waiting staff were very attentive.
What let this visit down was the very disappointing attitude of the reception team when we had a problem. Staff don't stay on the property 24 hours, so when we woke early in the morning to continue our trip and couldn't open our bathroom door, we had to wait for over an hour and a half before we were able to gain access. Our door had somehow locked itself overnight, and the delay in gaining access to the bathroom affected our timetable for that day's journey quite severely.
However, in an old property these things can happen, unfortunately the reception team when we came to check out made no effort to compensate us for this inconvenience in any way - they refused to give us any money back, not even covering the cost of 4 drinks we bought when we arrived, claiming that they didn't have the authority and that the duty manager wouldn't be in until later that day. We asked for the duty manager to call us when they got in, but no phone call was forthcoming. This really put a damper on the whole experience. In summary - great if everything goes well, but if something goes wrong, don't expect any help from this team. Not what we expected from a 4+ star property; I won't be recommending this place to any of my friends or family.

After enjoying snacks in Quitman's Lounge, a couple of Roosevelt's unmatchable mint juleps, and a walk around the lovely grounds, we enjoyed a delicious meal in the 1818 restaurant. We stayed in an upstairs carriage house suite which was very quiet and private. We liked the fact that the sitting room could be closed off completely from the bedroom. It would have been nice to have had a small refrigerator in the room, but the turn-down service did at least include fresh ice. The memory foam mattress was very comfortable. Breakfast in the Garden Room was elegant and delicious. It offered a combination of a self-service cold breakfast bar and full-service hot beverages and breakfast plate service with choices that would accommodate tastes ranging from heart-healthy to full Southern. The house tour would be of special interest to history buffs as the home was owned by a well-respected general who was also governor.

Our next station after New Orleans was Natchez. Natchez itself is just a nice city on the Mississippi River however; Monmouth Plantation is a real Gem. The main house, our room, the great garden around everything had a great fill of luxury and good taste. The southern breakfast was very tasteful
