The Claiborne Mansion is a wonderful oasis to return to after a long day of sightseeing. It is in a quiet area, yet just minutes walk to the quarter and is near some excellent restuarants (if you stay there try Marigny Brasserie). The room was lovely and very comfortable, the pool and gardens beautiful. Fresh pastries were provided every morning with fresh coffee, we could help ourselves to beers from the fridge and one afternoon a plate of cheese and biscuits were provided for us. As for the owner Cleo, she is quite a character and we all got on very well with her. If you are prepared to make an effort and do not treat her like a hotel receptionist in her own home, you will be rewarded.
