“Needs an elevator!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2010

I would have to concur with the flavour of recent reviews, having booked Dunleith after missing out on others. The rooms in the main building are substantial, but carting cases up several flights of stairs without assistance was not pleasurable. The taps in my bathroom were leaking badly and the bathroom itself bordering on inadequate (and I am a tolerant chap..) Check-in was the best bit; the restaurant was shut on Sunday night and breakfast was uninteresting, for the South. Beautiful home and gardens but not worth the effort.

The house and grounds are very nice without doubt. We got stuck in a cobweb infested servents quarters. The worn out rugs were soiled and you pretty much need to be an Olympic athlete to get to the majority of the rooms. The restaurant is over priced. The bar was pretty good but the service below average. Our promised tour of the main house was cancelled due to a private function. There was reluctance to refund our prepaid cost for the tour. We really screwed up by not checking TripAdvisor for this accomodation. Even 20 out of 32 is high.

Dunleith was recommended to us by friends from Mississippi who always stay there when in Natchez. Having to use an out side stairway over 70 stairs to our room was really difficult.
We felt like second class citizens as there were wedding plans going on with the wedding the next day. So we had to check out for that night and come back the next day to continue our visit. Don't expect to use any part of the house besides your own room The main parts of the house are off limits. The tour of the house is a disappointment as you only see the first floor and none of the furniture belonged to the original families. The day following the wedding, the house and grounds were strewn with remnants of the big day, glasses, bottles etc everywhere. Mops, brooms and vacuums left in the corners. The rooms we stayed in were large, but worn around the edges like the carpets on the stairs. The Pub and Castle restaurant were fine. Food was good. Service was good. The place has such potential, but needs a lot of work.

We enjoyed experiencing the history of Dunlieth. The outside is beautiful, and just what you think of when you think of the South. The suite we had was managable, but, in dire need of updating. It did have good bones...just needed a bit of cleaning and attention. The quality of the mattress was good. I would, however, suggest you make the splurge and stay at Monmoth.

Just had the pleasure of spending a couple of days in the Main House in room 501.Climbing all those flights of stairs was worth it. We were there for a wedding. Room was beautiful, everything functioned, bed was really comfy, fireplace was a treat at bedtime. Really warmed up the room.
Rooms are very large. Bathroom came with a jetted tub. Breakfast was really good as well. Would definitely love to stay again.

Recently my husband and myself were guest at this historic Inn. We came for the wedding of our niece and stayed in room #101. We were assured it was a handicap accessible room when we verified our reservations by phone. The room, though very beautiful, was not a handicap accessible room. I am in a wheelchair full time and could not even enter the room without my husband having to lift my motorized chair over the threshold. The furniture had to be moved out of the doorway in order for me to enter after that. I don't want to sound crude, but even the handicapped have to be able to access the toilet from time to time and a hand rail approximately two feet off the floor next to an extremely low setting toilet just does not exactly follow ADA guidelines. The tub was completely unaccessible. The room barely large enough to maneuver my wheelchair around in. The only thing that followed ADA guidelines was the sink in the bathroom.

We missed most of the wedding and reception since the courtyard was not accessible to a wheelchair bound person and my husband could not leave me and join the festivities because I could not even get around that room without assistance. If we had known all of this in advance, we would have stayed in a much less expensive hotel with real handicap accommodations and only gone to the Inn long enough to hear the wedding vows. Which was the only part of the wedding we were able to share with the rest of the guest and only then because that part of the ceremony was moved inside due to rain.

I am sorry that I can not comment on the beauty and historic relevance of this inn. I did not have the opportunity to appreciate these attributes since most of my stay was spent in tears in our room.

Dramatic setting on grounds of lovely plantation house; spacious room decorated in period style with (electric) fireplace; tastefully modernized with AC, great bathroom.
BUT: the 4-poster bed was very, very high (we were able to roll in and out, but short people will have problems, as the staff readily admitted; you can't sit on the bed without your legs dangling in the air). There was no place to put anything: the shelf in the small closet was full, there were 3 tiny tables cluttered with lamps + stuff that I had to put on the floor. The sink is in the main bedroom and splashes go all over the rug. Awkward access to the room with a small, poorly lit driveway and dark, gravelly parking area (so dark we drove down a steep stretch of lawn by mistake). We ended up parking some distance away where there was a light. The outdoor staircases are steep + completely uncovered, and we saw no sign of anyone to help with luggage. No wi-fi in room (though we were able to use the PC in the office for internet access).
The breakfast was wonderful, though, and the staff was nice.
