Over Monmouth Historic Inn
Wat is er meer typerend voor 'The Deep South' dan de katoenplantages? In de Monmouth Historic Inn verblijft u in stijl, omringd door het verleden. En natuurlijk de prachtige groene tuinen! Vele eervolle vermeldingen vielen Monmouth al ten deel, waaronder 'een van de 10 meest romantische plekken in Amerika'. Het is gelegen in Natchez, nabij de Mississippi-rivier en in de omgeving bevinden zich katoenplantages die nog steeds in bedrijf zijn. Monmouth, een Nationaal Historisch Monument, beschikt over smaakvol ingerichte kamers en suites, elk voorzien van moderne gemakken zoals televisie en WIFI. De kamers en suites hebben hun klassieke charme behouden, het decor verwijst trots naar de roemruchte tijd van weleer. Verblijven hier is dan ook vooral een stap terug in de tijd, met behoud van comfort!

Natchez werd zo’n 250 jaar geleden gesticht en is daarmee de oudste nederzetting van de staat Mississippi. De invloeden van de Franse en Spaanse cultuur zijn nog ruimschoots in het straatbeeld aanwezig. Langs de rivier en door het oude stadscentrum kunt u fraaie wandelingen maken en oude plantagehuizen bewonderen.
We wanted to spend the night in Natchez while touring, and chose the Monmouth Inn based on its reputation. It is old and very authentic. So, expect the decor to be Victorian with lots of fabric. Naturally, older places don't have many electrical outlets, so we had to share an outlet. The bathroom was small, but the shower was good. The lighting throughout the room and bathroom was quite dim. The sleep quality was just average, because our king bed did not have a good mattress/box spring. Every time one of us rolled over, the whole bed jiggled. There's no excuse for that at this price point. We had dinner in the Inn that night, and the food was fine but not exceptional. My gumbo arrived lukewarm, not hot. There was a thermos of coffee available in the main building for early risers. Breakfast was in a separate building, and was fine, but, again, not exceptional. The servers were very nice. Staff was pleasant. The grounds looked beautiful. If you love the "old plantation" experience, definitely stay here. I, however, was glad we only had one night here.
"Accommodation was in a suite away from the main house."
We were assigned a suite away from the main house but close to the building used to serve the breakfasts. The rooms were spacious and well furnished. We had a patio with rockers and a swing chair to share with our neighbours. Ample free parking. Ice was provided daily but no in-room tea and coffee facilities nor a mini bar. No wi-fi in the room but I was on vacation so not a problem. 1818 restaurant in the main house was good.
"Quite a bluff."
As a well travelled couple we expected an exceptional quality hotel. We were given a room on the ground floor (room 30). This place was full of humidity. Carpets in very bad condition, maintenance in the whole is needed. We planed Thanksgiving at the hotel so we had dinner at the restaurant. The place is a refrigerator. Food was served cold. The sweet potato soup was cold, the mushroom toast, served cold, the main dish (turkey) served cold and looked like made for a lion to eat. There is no class in the whole thing. The service quality of second category. As a Swiss used to exceptional class hÃ´tellerie service in hotels and restaurants, this place is much of a BLUFF for European and American clients standards. The staff needs instruction on how to serve and act as perfectly as the pretentiousness of a Southern mansion of cultural heritage imposes. We had a shabby experience. Won't come back for sure.
"Luxurious Southern Charm"
We adored our stay at this property. It was luxurious, restful and quaint. The staff were friendly and pleasant. Our room was well appointed - we felt as though we were staying in a museum. We spent an afternoon wandering the grounds taking in the charm of the property. The complimentary breakfast and hors dâ€™oeuvres were very good and served in beautiful, well appointed rooms in the main house. This property embodies the charm of the south.
"Best of the South"
From the genteel reservation attendant to the grand mossy oak trees lining the entrance, we traced our steps back to a time of long ago in the South where manners, etiquette, opulence & a grandeur were a part of every aspect of our stay. The on site historians proved an invaluable source of reference, don't miss out on the evening hos d' oeuvres & drinks in the Quitman study. We WILL be planning a return stay
