Ashton's Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #3 of 142 New Orleans B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 July 2014

When you've had enough of the sightseeing and partying, Ashton's is a great place to rest. The house is beautiful, and our room was well-appointed with everything from bathrobes and luxurious sheets to Aveda toiletries. Karma and Patrick were excellent hosts and offered helpful tips on where to go and how to get there, but they were never intrusive. They provide round-the-clock snacks and beverages which they keep set up in their gorgeous dining room and the breakfasts they serve are absolutely top-notch. Each day they serve a different decadent breakfast. My favorite was the eggs Benedict on an artichoke heart. YUM!!! The location is halfway between the French Quarter and City Park, each about a 20 minute walk away. There is a bus stop out front and the United Taxi service is quick and reasonable. My husband and I walked some days and took the bus or a taxi at other times-it was all easy. We couldn't have chosen a better place to spend our 25th anniversary. This was our first time in New Orleans, but it won't be our last. We would love to stay at Ashton's again - we highly recommend it!

We spent 4 days in NO and had a great time. A big part of that stay was our host and room at Ashton's B&B. They know NO and led us to some great spots and helped us out in a new city. Would gladly stay there again.

We decided to end our beach vacation a few days early and plan to stay in New Orleans a few nights. I knew immediately I wanted to stay at a B&B. I began researching and Ashton's seemed to have the best reviews. We arrived at Ashton's and were immediately greeted by Patrick, the owner and inn-keeper. He was so friendly and took us on a tour of the property letting us know the history of the house-even the 300 year old oak tree in the back. The breakfast, cooked by Patrick himself, was phenomenal and the service he and his wife provided was above and beyond any service you'd get at a hotel chain. They have complimentary snacks and drinks all hours of the day, Patrick even gave us some cigars of his own.
Nothing could've made our stay at Ashton's better. Well definitely be back next year and will be recommending them to all our friends traveling to NOLA.

This was an amazing discovery in a peaceful neighborhood. The breakfast - Bananas Foster Waffles Flambe - was beyond delicious. You have never experienced linens like the ones here. We had the best night sleep ever. The house is stunning, with high ceilings, period furnishings & a lovely back garden under an enormous oak tree. Patrick was a lovely host & we would definitely stay here again whenever we get back to New Orleans.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Garden District, very quiet & elegant.

We felt privileged to have found such a gorgeous home-away-from-home for our NOLA visit. Ashton's B&B represents everything that's so great about New Orleans in general: it's hospitable (Patrick is such a great host), delicious (the breakfasts...), with an extraordinarily beautiful, unique, old-style, yet cozy decor... And it's only a short, safe trip from the amazing music that New Orleans is all about. We can't wait to return on that lovely patio or the wonderful big tree that offers shade in the back yard, this is a truly New Orleanian haven.

Absolutely the best breakfast I've ever eaten, both mornings we were there! Banana Fosters Waffles and Poached eggs with smoked pork on a buttermilk biscuit with Cajun béarnaise sauce. WOW! Thanks Patrick! PS Loved the ginger scones you sent home with us! I love the personal attention you get here. Beautiful home. Top notch B&B. Super soft bedding sheets! Complimentary cigars, snacks, beer, coffee, tea's, etc. close enough to the quarter but far enough to not be bothered with the noise. Will definitely be coming back.

Writing this review I almost find myself at a loss for words. Its truly what you would expect in a 5star rated B&B in the south. Karma, Patrick & their staff were just so delightful and really show their guests what southern hospitality means. That house is absolutely amazing and our room was gorgeous. There are so many little things they include and do for their guests; truly above and beyond all expectations!

As for the breakfast...I am still working it off..lol. There isn't one dish I can't taste when I think about it: Bananas Foster, Sweet Potato French Toast...and more. The location was a healthy & pleasant 1m walk to Bourbon street. We found it to be entertaining by day and too much at night. Ashton's was a nice sanctuary from that scene.

Thank you to everyone who made our Honeymoon finale a memorable experience. Absolutely in love with this institution!

Room Tip: They're all beautiful..just book one!
