“So much better than a hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2011

We were attending a quilt show at the Hampton Convention Center and wanted an alternative to the typical hotel chain. I found Magnolia House Inn online and booked our stay. It was only a short drive from the convention center. Magnolia House is on a quiet street. From the moment we were welcomed inside by the owners, Joyce and Lankford Blair, our stay was just so relaxing. They have lovingly restored this turn of the century house into its original splendor. The decorations are just perfect. So warm and inviting. Our room was spacious, the bed comfy, the amenities just right (robe and slippers included). They thought of everything to make our stay comfortable. Breakfast was outstanding. I loved the croissant french toast. They had a guest pantry on the first floor where we could get tea, coffee and other beverages at night. And Joyce made the best chocolate chip cookies for a late night snack. The Blairs were gracious hosts who made our stay in Hampton just perfect.

My wife and I arranged a weekend at the Nagnolia House for my parent's 25th wedding anniversary. From the first moment that I spoke with the owners of the Magnolia House I was impressed with their professionalism and personableness. The Blaires helped me to make all the arrangements for my parents and took personal responsibilty for the quality of their stay.

My mother was effusive in her praise for the Magnolia House and their hosts. She and my stepfather were so touched by our gift of this weekend that they wish to come back to stay taking my wife and I along so that we can share in their experience.

I wish to personally thank the Blairs for making our gift to my parents for thier 25th wedding anniversary so memorable and meaningful.

We stayed at the Magnolia Bed and Breakfast to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. Our trip to Hampton and the stay at Magnolia B&B will be one of our favorite memories. Both Mr. and Mrs. Blair made our stay very comfortable, their B&B is beautiful, clean and very tastefully decorated.

The breakfast that Mrs. Blair prepared every morning was delicious! Both my husband and I became big fans of the blueberry muffins that Mrs. Blair made for us (and we usually NEVER buy muffins at the store)! They made great recommendations for site seeing as well as dining (even taking the extra care of making reservations for us). We had an amazing anniversary dinner (at Brent’s) as well as a HUGE Sunday lunch (at Captain George’s).

I have only good things to say about this place and think ourselves lucky on stumbling across this B&B for our last minute weekend getaway.

We were excited to get away for one day to celebrate and relax on our anniversary. We too own a B&B and were ready for someone to wait on us for a change. When we arrived, Lankford met us at the door, what a nice guy! He showed us around their beautiful B&B, then to our room, which was lovely, and explained that his wife was out, but we would meet her in the morning. She was as pleasant as he was and was a world of knowledge when it came to the hospitality business. We invited her to sit while we had our breakfast to " talk shop." The meal was warm, wonderfuland filling and the company was like dessert. Joyce helped us with innkeeping questions and concerns and has remained available since our visit, whenever we need her expertise. Thank you Joyce and Lankford for a relaxing visit, we left regenerated. Hope to come back again soon. Come visit us too.

Another great visit. Joyce and Lankford are beyond hospitable from warm cookies on the porch to individualized beverages to touring tips to delicious breakfasts to down-home friendliness. The house is immaculate and the rooms provide all the comforts of home and plus! It is our choice of places to stay in Hampton before any other.
