Ashton's Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #3 of 141 New Orleans B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 November 2013

We stayed at Ashton's for our honeymoon. This inn is gorgeous ! From the monent you walk up the steps onto the porch, you feel welcome. The grounds are beautiful and comfortable. You can relax in a rocking chair and watch the people go by on Esplande or sit under the 300 year old oak tree on the back patio. Patrick and Karma are such gracious hosts and Patrick makes hands down the best breakfasts I have ever had ! We stayed in the Creole room. It was the perfect place to go "home" to after a long day of sightseeing. We could either take a bath in the huge sauna tub or take a nap on one of the best beds I've ever slept in. Patrick gave us wonderful tips and advice on what to see and eat in New Orleans. He even printed out a walking tour fron the inn to city park with specific details on everything from the historic homes to the cemetery.

Patrick and Karma (and Richard and Caroline) thank you for making out honeymoon a dream !

There couldn't be a better bed and breakfast in New Orleans! Patrick is a resplendent cook.The rooms are lovely. The tree in the backyard is ancient and ridiculous. We were greeted by a voodoo zombie wedding on Halloween weekend--couldn't have been more perfect. The big claw foot Jacuzzi tub made my body happy after long days of walking in the beautiful city. The Ashton's were inviting and helpful at every turn. Just know that you will have to take a cab to get to the main attractions, but I found it nice to get away from the hubbub. GREAT PLACE!

Very pleasant antebellum home with attentive and caring innkeepers. Bed and linens lovely and very comfortable. Home large and "Southern gracious." Rooms vary in ways adapted to have private bathrooms. We were very well situated in Garden District room; would avoid Jackson Square room where bathroom is only curtained off. Patrick and Karma are welcoming hosts and their breakfast server and housekeeping woman couldn't have been nicer. Did I mention breakfasts?? They were amazing! Patrick loves the cooking niche and does an exemplary job in planning and preparing gourmet offerings, alternating sweet and savory each day. Having a car to get around made staying out on Esplanade a pleasure.

What an incredible experience at Ashton's B&B! The house, the furnishings, the ambiance and character were all first rate. The personal touch by the owners (Patrick and Karma) were seen everyday. The grounds are manicured perfectly and the massive 300 year old tree in the courtyard is something to witness. Everything from the super-soft sheets to the incredible breakfasts----I truly don't think they've missed anything. One thing we noticed is the quality of people staying there---everyone was from different places and cultures, yet we found them all very friendly---we can't thank the Ashton's enough for such a great stay and we're already planning our trip back!

We rented the entire bed and breakfast for friends and family. It was amazing. Patrick, Karma, Richard and Caroline made our trip, hands down. The location is great in the older creole mansions, right on Esplanade. We walked from the quarter a couple of times but mostly took taxis. Patrick was so helpful in trying to find ways to feed our crew when the restaurant we called had a line.

The beds were actually more comfortable than 5 star hotels. The sheets were incredibly soft. The house is large and the rooms spacious. It was a bonus to have the whole place as we got to see all the rooms. There wasn't a bad one in the house. They have used only the best accessories and furnishings. In the past my husband has felt uncomfortable in Bed and Breakfasts because of his size. He's 6'7, so antiques just don't work for him. They have taken the time to furnish the house, the bathrooms and the kitchen breakfasts with only the best!

My favorite places on this trip was having cocktails in the back courtyard and eating the yummy snacks after we came in from listening to music and rocking on the front porch. We always stay at the Hotel Monteleone when in New Orleans but from now on we will be staying here.

Slightly out of the French Quarter, but worth the taxi ride or walk there. The room was lovely and clean. The breakfasts were amazing. The staff was very pleasant. The cats were welcoming. Snacks and water provided 24 hours. I can only hope to return again soon.

We very recently visited New Orleans with 2 other couples for a short 5 day trip. The 6 of us occasionally travel together and were initially somewhat averse to a B&B experience (beds / privacy / noise, etc.). However, reading so many excellent "Trip Advisor" reviews convinced us to make the reservations anyway. Happy we did as we all really enjoyed our stay!

Ashtons was always a fun & relaxing place to go back to, after long days out and about, mostly walking and checking out "NOLA". Relative proximity to New Orleans' many good restaurants and music scene ($7-8 cab) provides convenient access to the city's entertainment scene. We found the best music on Frenchman street, although Burbon street certainly has a life of its own. Nearby Royal street has many little shops for people who like to browse!

If one enjoys cigars, Patrick the owner, is happy to share the cigars in his 2 humidors (the B&B is strickly "non smoking" inside). The very large front porch & rocking chairs are inviting for leisurely late afternoon sittings. Another much appreciated gesture was the tasty scones baked and left out for us to eat in the morning. Once Karma found out we had to be at the airport by 6.30am and, would otherwise leave without a real breakfast (which breakfasts are by the way, special too! Patrick, Karma, Richard & Caroline make a great team.
