We were en route to Memphis and decided to stay at this interesting and well-recommended Edwardian house. The building is impressive and attractive and we were welcomed warmly by Joel and Amber and their three friendly dogs. Our room was spacious and light, well furnished and with a well appointed if somewhat small bathroom. Breakfast was very well prepared and served with style. Joel and Amber were very hospitable and this establishment really deserves better. The town of Helena is rather sad and declining and the surrounds are a little depressing. We like to walk and found the pavements pretty rough. This is not the fault of the Edwardian Inn which stands out like a diamond in the rough
Beautiful and historic bed and breakfast. Owners were extremely kind and friendly. I felt as if I was at home. Having 3 pups running around really made it feel like home. I highly recommend the Edwardian Inn!
We just stayed one night but the Inn is really historic, well maintained, and the rooms are very well furnished....huge in fact and extremely comfortable. Breakfast was a very welcome healthy alternative. Would highly recommend staying here
We were traveling through Arkansas and stopped in Helena-West Helena without reservations. We were fortunate enough to find an available room at this beautiful old home turned B& B. We stayed in a second floor room, beautifully redone, with a sitting area, as well as bathroom and bedroom. The bed was comfortable, the bed and bath linens were delightful. This would have been a 5 star experience, except for details. The large front semi-circle front porch desperately needed to be hosed down. It was late April and Christmas decor was still out! Come on, even Easter is past. Put out some spring items! Indoors as well. The owners are great people, and we had supper at their downtown historic district restaurant. Food there was very good, with nice wait staff. Breakfast at the B& B was a nice continental serve-yourself affair.
If you are looking for an owner to give you a lecture after several hours of hectic travel then this is the place for you. After several hours of flight delays I finally landed in Memphis at 11 PM. It was an insane travel day that was accompanied by a personal tragedy that I dealt with during the brief moments we were allowed to use our phones while either in the airport or waiting on the tarmac. I had a voicemail from the Edwardian Inn when I landed and I called them to apologize and inform them of my delays. I would have called earlier had I been able to (and were I able to call from the air). When I arrived at the hotel the owner grumpily answered and let me in. He told me that I was rude for getting there so late and that he wished he hadn’t let me in. No inquiries about the cause for my delay. No acknowledgment that I called as soon as I landed. No curiosity as to what may have caused such an insane travel delay. Rather, a scathing lecture. What a way to end the day. Also, the beds are terribly uncomfortable and the soap dispensers in the shower don’t work. They also don’t have bar soap in the bathroom. Perhaps the owners have a good lecture about how it’s rude to not bring your own soap. Bed and Breakfasts are supposed to have a personal touch. This one comes with that. It’s just a very rude personal touch.
We enjoyed a stay at The Edwardian with a group of friends. We were sharing a beautiful restored mansion of a bygone era with great community space on the front porch and main parlor. The rooms were comfortable with good beds and linens. The host prepared a nice breakfast each morning with several options. It was perfect for our group and would also work well for solo travelers.
Had a wonderful overnight stay on business at the Edwardian Inn. The owners were very welcoming and informative about the area and satisfied every need, including an egg white breakfast on request. The General Dobbins room was large and comfortable and the home is beautiful and enjoyed exploring the common areas. Also enjoyed dinner at their restaurant Southbound Tavern on Cherry Street in the Historic District.
Beautiful and charming! The atmosphere was warm and inviting and the owners felt more like visiting old friends! We felt as though we were at home! The breakfast was delicious and coffee was always available. The decor detail was amazing. We will be staying again! Thanks again
I stumbled upon this fine bed & breakfast quite by accident. I was planning to attend the Deep Blues Festival in Clarksdale, Mississippi but was too late to find accommodations in town. As I searched for alternatives, I came upon the Edwardian Inn and I’m so glad I did. It’s a beautifully restored grand old home that sits on a knoll not five minutes from the bridge that crosses the Mississippi River between Clarksdale and West Helena. The décor and accommodations are of the type and quality I experienced in the best bed and breakfasts in New England. The rooms are large, comfortable, and high-ceilinged - nicely appointed with traditional furnishings, very comfortable beds, and fine bathroom amenities. Breakfasts are a real treat – gourmet style. Joel and Amber are the owners/innkeepers of the Edwardian who, together with their pair of Dalmatians, are wonderfully hospitable and helpful. They also own the Southbound Tavern just a few minutes away that features delicious and creative American fare along with large screen TVs and live music. If you are considering attending the many art and historical events that the Clarksville/Helena area has to offer, this is the place to stay. You’ll be within minutes of events on either side of the River and happily spend your off-hours reading or having tea/coffee in the spacious living areas with fellow guests.
We have not stayed in too many B&B's, but the friendly owners were always around, baking cookies for guests and welcoming us and having sumptuous breakfasts -- and that is why we sometimes stay in a B&B instead of earning points at a chain hotel. But this atmosphere seemed a cold. But it is great if you want to be left alone. The 2 dogs were cute and very well-trained. The house is lovely but it is very dark and it feels like you went a couple hundred years back in time. The 2nd flood where the rooms are is very dark and I almost tripped. We were in the blue room with a couch so low you could not sit in it. Bed was comfortable but the bedroom heater is very loud and on the wall about 4 feet from your head in bed. Nice bathroom and it was nice to see a separate heater for the bathroom. There were NO breakfast choices -- you got what you were given, period. Didn't even ask if anyone had allergies. The food was lukewarm and felt prepared in advance. One morning lukewarm egg on toast/muffin with bacon, but really delicious pico de Gallo. Since I don't like eggs Benedict, I got eggs Benedict without the sauce: one egg on a dry muffin. It wouldn't have been so bad if there was butter on the muffin or even an offer of butter. Next day was very little to eat since I don't eat white gravy on biscuits -- if she had bothered to tell me what was for breakfast before putting it on the table, I could have said just the biscuits with butter and the sausage. Instead, I had to scrape the gravy of to get 1 biscuit, put the sausage in and eat it dry. Due to the awful breakfasts, I skipped the last one. There was zero concern for you at breakfast. There were 2 bottles of water in the room every day, but no housekeeping at all. The bathroom trash was emptied and towels replaced on the 3rd day only. The towels were very tired and very used. We ate 3 nites at the restaurant they own, can't remember the name, and the food was good and service excellent.
