Very nice 8-room guesthouse (I guess that means a B&B without the second B) smack in the middle of downtown across from the Peabody Hotel, home of the famous ducks and an easy short walk away from Beale Street - couldn't be better! Large, clean and comfy rooms with a small kitchen and with complimentary coffee and tea, cold cereals...

I can’t say enough good things about Talbot Heirs. This is undoubtedly the best hotel/guesthouse at which I’ve ever had the pleasure of staying. The location can’t be beat; it’s in the heart of Memphis and within walking distance to anything you need downtown. The inn consists of just eight rooms which were formally studio apartments, and the owners, who...

This place is by far the absolute BEST!!!! Tom and Sandy are so friendly, helpful, and accommodating. From the start they made us feel welcome -- like old friends. We enjoyed 4 wonderful nights there. Everything about it was absolutely perfect. We loved the room. What a treat to have our own little balcony in the middle of the city!...

Service, style, warmth, & comfort are the essential ingredients for Talbot Heirs. From Tom meeting us at the curb to Sandy's smile to Tara's outstanding talents, this place was great. It is centrally located being close to Beale Street, trolley cars, and major highways. My wife & I spent three nights there and loved it. We highly recommend staying here!!

My husband and I spent 3 nights at the Talbot Heirs and loved everything about it - location, hosts, room, art! We were greeted by Tom and Sandy's friend Jerry who gave us great tips for dining and getting around. The atmosphere is wonderfully relaxing.

My friend and I stayed at Talbot Heirs on the start of our blues highway roadtrip. We were fortunate enough to be here for 3 nights and it was fantastic. The suite was spacious, homely, comfortable, and clean. The location is about as perfect as you can get. A stones thrown from many great restaurants, walking distance from Beale St...

We stayed at Talbot Heirs while on a trip around the American South from England. Tom and Sandy, the hosts, are lovely - very friendly and laid back. We stayed in Suite 3, which was great - and huge. It made us slow our pace as it was just nice to spend time there. The snacks left in the kitchen...

A spacious, genteel cool comfortable oasis after running around Memphis. The owners are equally cool, helpful, friendly, charming. Great local artwork adorns their walls and halls, quiet atmosphere, so close to attractions only needed to get out the car once from the parking lost half a block away. Felt safe and pampered and would come back in a heartbeat.

Talbot Heirs is warm, personal, friendly, charming, authentic. We chose room #7 because a single room, combination bedroom sitting room, suits us. We loved the colors and character and comfort. Paintings by local artists line the halls. The hosts, Tom and Sandy, were great, helpful, personable. The location is ideal. We used the kitchen in #7 to prepare our breakfasts....

We spent 2 nights in Memphis on our road trip through the South - and stayed here over a busy weekend. Talbot Heirs is superbly located, in the heart of downtown, walking distance to Beale Street and other attractions, yet still fairly quiet. The accommodation was very spacious, comfortable and coolly decorated. Jerry and his wife are incredibly welcoming, friendly...
