Nice property and staff. Food was also good (we had light dinner and breakfast). We stayed in the cottages. Rooms were clean. Enjoyed our stay. We would stay there again if we were going to be in Natchez again.
Stayed in the main house for 1 night in four poster room. House looks impressive from outside and the grounds were stunning. Room was large and great but 1 night was enough for us. Bathroom was very old fashioned as you would expect from a property like this. Tour of house interesting though the lady lacked any charm or charisma and enthusiasm for the property which was surprising. Dinner was very nice in the extremely romantic and charming dining room. Pre dinner drinks took an eternity as the poor chap had no help and was doing an impossible task of serving everyone single handed. Not his fault but resulted in people receiving a less than acceptable level of service. Management need to look at this as we waited nearly 25 minutes for a drink. Breakfast the next day was a short walk through the grounds and was delicious. Scones were incredible. Beautiful setting again. Enjoyed our stay very much.
If you want the Tara experience, this is the place. It's a beautiful location and the food at the restaurant is excellent. Shirley the server there is excellent and very nice. is Great music with dinner both nights of our stay. A lot of Natchez locals,who exhibit their own homes,hang out there. Take the tour of the house. Interesting and informative. Our room was just ok. Nice terrace and view, but the furniture and bathroom were nothing much and somewhat down at the heels. After seeing the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis and driving the Delta, we questioned the relevance of such a place, nowadays. Indeed, Monmouth is the ying of today's anti Dixie yang. Never mind, y'all. Still a lot of fun.
On the way on a long road trip, great place to stop and chill. Needs money spending on it as whole place is getting tired and living in the past too much. However, worth staying if you want some southern relaxation. Nothing much to do in Natchez so only use as,a stopover
......…at the Monmouth Inn, not least the architecture, the gardens, the excellent bathroom, hot water, towels, ice, beds and more, it is sad to report that service cannot be included in the admirable category. One rather pathetic incident gives the lie to this, which I describe ‘in media res’. Having spent a pleasant evening and sound night, I proceeded to breakfast at 7.30 the next morning, offered in a separate shed in the grounds. I was greeted, if that is the right word, by three malaperts, one folding napkins, the other two seated, leaning on their hands, doing naught. A cheery good-morning from me was barely reciprocated – not a problem and I was told I could sit anywhere…obviously. I was asked by a risen malapert if I wanted some coffee and it was poured. I asked if they had low-fat milk, to which the bald and deeply unpleasant answer was ‘No’. Nothing more by way of explanation, reason or even excuse, simply ‘No’. Any milk at all? On the side, so clearly, Mr Guest at our excellent Inn, get it yourself……but having asked for low-fat milk the obvious offering of any sort of milk was completely beyond her. I don’t wish to be treated like that. I left and cannot comment further on the quality of breakfast as I didn’t have any. I recommend McDonalds on Sgt Prentiss Drive, a mere 5 minutes away – cheap, good quality and polite staff. It was rude and inhospitable and also downright lazy and idle of these three underworked ladies to speak to anyone, let alone a guest, in such a manner and despite what anyone else might have to say on the matter there is no excuse whatsoever for bad manners, as they cost nothing and add greatly to the quality of life.
This is a beautiful plantation home. We stayed for one weekend in November and it was very comfortable. Our room was in the main house and it was beautiful. My only complaint was that the bathroom vanity was starting to rot and the towel bars were loose and close to falling off of the wall. The food at the restaurant was delicious and the bar had wonderful drinks and appetizers. The town of Natchez is beautiful but the town looks like it is suffering financially. Most shops have closed and shopping there is a bit depressing beside the fact that most shops and businesses close on Sunday making it hard to find things to do on the weekend. Plan on staying on property and visiting other plantations during your stay. It is a beautiful town and the people are very friendly.
This is an old historic property with lots of charm. The grounds are beautiful and very peaceful. We had a garden room which was very spacious, although the shower cubicle was a bit snug. The bed was very high - I had to turn a waste paper bin upside down to use a step to reach it (I am only 5 feet tall). The room could also do with a full length mirror. As with so many hotels we have stayed in - the air con is noisy at night. We ate in the restaurant which was expensive but very tasty. We could also have eaten in the bar - which we didn't know at the time. Breakfast was included in the price and was really good. The staff are very helpful and friendly.
This really is a beautiful and historical location set in lovely gardens. We stayed here for two nights and had a marvellous stay. The front desk staff were lovely and really looked after us. There are some real characters that work here. Hal the porter and Roosevelt the bar tender are just great fun and require a special mention. I thoroughly recommend eating in the main restaurant. Chef Mike provides an exquisite menu - a taste sensation!!
Beautiful by any measure, this estate hosts beautiful gardens with the fantastic home and restaurant. Long a landmark in Natchez MS, you will enjoy the accommodations and the cuisine. Give Monmouth a visit!
We visited Natchez as a stopping off point midway between New Orleans &memphis. The Monmouth turned out to be a excellent choice We had a fantastic room in an annex close to the main house ,upgraded as a complimentary gesture as it was a special trip for us The reception staff were superb ,the room huge & we sat on the porch in rocking chairs admiring the view of the immaculate gardens & pond Dinner was good & the bar staff worked tirelessly in humid conditions The tour around the house was most interesting as well 5 stars from us
