We booked through booking.com for a stopover on our honeymoon road trip and were allocated a garden room. The room was lovely, the floor a little dusty and could do with being mopped. The bathroom was spacious with l'occitane toiletries. In the room there were complimentary bottles of water and a full ice bucket. The bed was of an appropriate style to match the property but the mattress was a little sunken to the middle so both of us kept rolling into the centre. Due to the nature of the room being in the lovely gardens there were mosquitoes and a couple of cockroaches who wished to share our room with us, which we quickly removed. We ate in the fine dining restaurant 1818, which was delightful. The lamb lollipops were cooked perfectly, as was the salmon and the chocolate dessert was so rich. The wine was also good, we shared a bottle of pinot noir. The complimentary tour the next day was a nice end to the stay, as were the festivities ongoing for Monmouths 200th birthday. Unfortunately, we never got a chance to sample the hors d'oeuvres or try the cocktail bar as we arrived later on. The breakfast was of a very high quality and service was excellent. I would stay here again but I would be sure to book direct and ask for a room in the main house.
Once you drive up the beautiful drive to the antebellum mansion, you are transported to a time of refinement and true southern hospitality. In a time where we are all rushed through dinner, rarely thanked or looked in the eye, this is the respite we all need and seek. The rooms are beautiful - Ms Mary, still makes you breakfast as she has for 38 years in a dining room straight out of gone with the wind. Most of the staff has been there for at least 10 years and they love the place. It is obvious the owners love it as well. The grounds are amazing and the Mint Juleps at the fine dining restaurant are second to none. Absolutely nothing is lacking. Fishing at the pond on the property (more than 25 acres) and croquet on the lawn...homemade biscuits in the morning and coffee on the veranda. And the town. Live music every evening at one of the multiple honky-tonks. Great restaurants and a cute casino on the majestic Mississippi - grab a cold beer at one of the bars on the river and experience a sunset like nowhere else. This inn as well as this town is truly a gem I am happy to have found.
The Monmouth is a small historic mansion in extensive and very attractive grounds. The House itself offers 6 or so suites but the vast majority of rooms are in outlying buildings with adjacent car parking. Rooms are of good size, lavishly furnished in period style complete with dummy fireplaces and open onto verandas with rocking chairs overlooking the gardens. Bathrooms are also of good size but contain bath with curtain rather than a dedicated shower. Guests are provided neither with complimentary drinking water nor coffee making facilities. There is an upmarket dining room that we did not try, but casual dining is reasonably priced and of good quality. The inclusive breakfast provided in the very well presented Garden Room by delightful staff is excellent. All Staff are courteous and friendly and the complementary tour of the Mansion is well worth while.
Stayed for 2 nights on our 26 day road trip. Lovely welcome on arrival, told us restaurant was open for dinner that evening and casual (no shorts please) was fine. Map of estate given to us and shown where to drive and park for our stunning cabin suite. Had dinner in 1881 that evening, very quiet but lovely room and excellent food and service. Had a drink in the beautiful bar rooms served by the very knowledgeable and gentlemanly Roosevelt. Toured the area next day by car, a stunning town, as lovely as anywhere we have seen in the usa. Lovely breakfasts in the garden room. Thanks Monmouth for your hospitality and professionalism. Tour of the house before we left, remarkable property.
We stopped in for the tour and a stroll around the grounds for Fall Pilgrimage 2018. I know this is a B&B but we didn’t stay here, but would consider it in the future. The tour was interesting and the grounds were beautifully kept. I bet it’s gorgeous in spring with more stuff blooming. Tour guide was reasonably knowledgeable, but couldn’t answer questions that went too far off script. She needs some more study. Still enjoyed our visit.
Our stay at The Monmouth Historic Inn was a little slice of heaven! This Inn is so welcoming, for starters the office staff will take care of you from the beginning. Laura & Lorri we’re great in planning our stay. Ms. Ivering gives the Best tour We had the Romance package & upon arrival we found champagne & choc covered strawberries awaiting our stay in The Plantation Suite and Miss Eliza’s Room in the Main Home. Breakfast was of high quality foods & Miss Mary’s biscuits are to die for! Nightly turn down service was so nice. The bed linens & towels & robes are wonderful. Bathrooms are stocked with all necessity items you may need. They provide it all!! Two of their longest employees are so naturally attentive to the guests - Laura, Lorrie & Hal provides any changes to your daily accommodation needs or changes. Hal always greeted us by our names. and Roosevelt, oh he is such a southern treat in the Quitman Lounge. He served very smooth Mint Julep drinks. Roosevelt serves light dinners in the lounge too. Restaurant 1818 was exquisite. They treated us so fine! Star 5 all the way. Shirley is a top notch fine dining waitress. We toured the gardens, the grounds are so Pretty. Special mention to the owners, Nancy & Warren, they are so friendly and nice. We loved our stay & plan to visit again. Roosevelt said “we’ll leave the light on!” We highly recommend staying at the Monmouth Historic Inn!!!
If you are going to stay in Natchez this is the place to stay,it's like going back in time the main house and rooms are so elegant and steeped in history, the grounds and gardens are beautiful.A very warm southern welcome when you arrive and the staff are amazing,Roosevelt is the star of the place who looks after the bar and closely followed by George who looks after the restaurant,the food in the restaurant was very tasty. If l am ever in Natchez again l will definitely stay again
To enjoy Natchez you need to stay in an historic inn. The Monmouth is an old building set in beautifully mature gardens just outside down town. We stayed in a garden cottage. The décor reflects the period of this establishment so modern furniture would not suit so I have no idea why other reviewers have criticised this Inn for this. The accommodation satisfactorily met our needs and it was lovely to stay in a four poster bed and to have a turn down service. The bathroom may not be the most modern but is was spotlessly clean and had little touches such as L'Occitane toiletries. Hal escorted us to our room and provided us with lots of history about it and recommendations on where to eat in town. Breakfast is serviced in a separate building located in the garden. On a good day you can sit outside or sit indoors with the comfort of the air conditioning. Our waitress Nichelle was absolutely lovely, extremely friendly and a real character. She made our breakfast experience very enjoyable due to her banter and cheerful disposition, alongside the delicious breakfast even though the grits are not to our UK taste. She is certainly not a malapert! If you want to experience Natchez you need to stay in this hotel
We just spent the one night at the Monmouth on route from New Orleans to Memphis but would have happily stayed longer. We were lucky enough to get an upgraded room as it was a birthday trip which was a lovely suite in one of the outbuildings. The staff as we’ve now come to expect in the south were all very hospitable and both breakfast and the evening meal in the main dining room were very good.
It's a period property, but makes for a comfortable, pleasant stay. The main house is beautiful, restaurant looks great (we did not use it as it was fully booked). Breakfast is served in a separate building at the bottom of the garden - lovely little walk first thing in the morning - and it is delicious. Overall we were very happy with our stay. Little quibble: We booked through Booking.com and upon arrival we were allocated to one of the garden rooms - a sort of a shared bungalow in the garden. When we went back to the reception to ask to be moved to the main building as that was what we booked, one of the receptionists was really rude about it. Thankfully the other lady was lovely and sorted it out for us quickly and efficiently.
