The House on Bayou Road
Ranked #83 of 141 New Orleans B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 November 2008

The Inn is beautiful. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Included breakfasts (made for you) are delicious. One of the main draws besides the charm and service, is the fact that your bill is what you are quoted. No hidden extra charges or fees (which happens more than it should). The price is very fair. Lets not forget the convenience of gated parking included. We plan on staying here every trip to New Orleans.

found this B&B on "Select Registry". The "House on Bayou Road" is a charming, unique property, attractive rooms (ask for Bayou Self), pool, lovely grounds, about 20 Min. walk from the French Quarter (and worth it). The staff was very helpful and atttentive and the breakfeast changes daily and is excellent.

All in all a wonderful New Orleans experience and far superior to any hotel.

Just returned home from New Orleans where I stayed at the House on Bayou Road with my wife for the first three nights of our week long vacation. Upon arrival the front of the house was locked with no indication of where to go to check in. After searching for any living soul for about 10 minutes the proprietor came out the back door to finally greet us. We were then shown to our room. The room we were given was not what we had booked. We were supposed to be given a superior room but instead checked into a standard room. The room itself was quite small with no sitting area, no amenities to speak of, and an AC which didn't function for two of the three nights of our stay- this is the hottest time of the year in N.O! In other B&Bs we've stayed in they at least provided some decent bathroom amenities like shampoo and conditioner etc... Here we made a tiny bar of soap last our entire stay. Breakfast was complimentary but was lacking in many ways. There was no choice of menu whatsoever and it was assumed by the ownership that everyone staying with them would be okay with the one offering. No continental items to speak of like muffins, danishes, croissants, bisquits etc... The pool was also not in opporation for our entire stay. All in all the condition of the house and the grounds are rough around the edges. We were left with the impression that the House on Bayou Road's glory days reached their peak prior to hurricaine Katrina. There seems to be a bit of penny pinching and corner cutting to make profit margins. To add to the not so wonderful experience was a not so friendly staff. I recommend you spend your hard earned money on a hotel or B&B that will deliver upon its promises. You'll not have a hard time finding a better location elsewhere.

I had been to New Orleans before, and stayed in the French Quarter. I'm so glad I decided on a different area this time. You are still close to the Quarter, but it's so much more peaceful and pleasant. The area definitely has some blight, as well as beautiful mansions. Don't let that put you off. We felt absolutely safe. I went for a walk by myself around the neighborhood (during the day!). Taxis are prompt and inexpensive. The grounds are beautiful, with a very refreshing pool for those hot summer days! We stayed in Bayou Cane, a lovely and comfortable room. Very private and romantic. The complimentary sherry is a plus! We were planning on staying 4 nights, but ended up staying 5. Could have stayed longer if time allowed. We'll definitely be back! As an aside, if you want to hear great music, and go where many of the locals go, try Frenchman Street (close to the French Quarter, but much better IMO).

I cannot encourage you enough to book a room here. I had never been to New Orleans and looked and looked. Luckily I came across the House on Bayou Road and it was perfect. I stayed in the private cottage which has an amazing bathroom very new and updated. It was wonderful to be able to take a $5 cab ride to the French Quarter for the day but then come back to this peaceful home and get out of the chaos. The bed and linens were great and the decor perfect. The included homemade breakfast is also really, really good! It is so nice to wake up and stroll over to be served a wonderful breakfast. The staff was so personable and helpful. They suggested a great restaraunt Brigstens which was unbelievable. We loved it! If you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing or romantic getaway STAY HERE!! I cannot wait to go back, my boyfriend and I absolutely loved it!

The House on Bayou Road is everything their website advertises. It is a gorgeous intimate area. Attention to detail is tremendous. The food is awesome. We stayed in the Bayou Self bungalow which is absolutely beautiful. We felt like we were in Key West. A must stay on the next trip to New Orleans. It is close enough to the quarter but enough away from the hustle and bustle. It is in an old area of New Orleans where the mom and pops set up shop when they immigrated to the U.S Angelo Bocato's bakery is a must see, the Mediterranean Cafe is scrumptious. Thank you Jane and your staff for the gracious hospitality. We will be back.

We stayed at the HOBR during Mardi Gras 2007. It was one of THE BEST travel experiences I have had. I was surprised from the moment I walked into the room how beautifully decorated it was - down to the little details like bath salts in a silver canister and a rubber ducky! :) The property took some damage from Katrina but is pretty much up and running with the exception of the gardens which are growing back. The hotel staff was wonderful - pleasant, welcoming and helpful. Breakfast was to die for - prepared fresh for each guest - including fruit and a main dish like Eggs Benedict or something equally delicious and fresh squeezed orange juice. Even though we were in one of the more affordable rooms I was so pleased with the experience that we are already planning our trip back for Mardi Gras 2008.
