Talbot Heirs Guesthouse
Ranked #1 of 18 Memphis B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 March 2012

Talbot Heirs is a fantastic hotel located within a couple blocks of Beale Street. The accommodations are outstanding. We had a room with a full kitchen, living room, a master bedroom, and a roll-away bed. Everything is extremely clean and tidy. The kitchen is stocked with milk, OJ, granola bars, cookies, and coffee. There is a cleaning service everyday that replaces towels, dresses beds, cleans, and stocks up food/beverage items. The hotel manager and his wife could not be friendlier. They are both extremely knowledgeable of the area and also always accessible. There is a lock on the street level/main door so there aren't any strangers walking through. We paid $175 a night over the weekend which was standard for the area. I recommend flying fish for dinner which is right next door.

Talbot Heirs is hidden on a Memphis side street. Don't let the location fool you. It's within walking distance of everything in the downtown area.

The suite was outstanding -- comfortable, well appointed and felt almost like home. Tts a great place to stay at a reasonable price.

Room Tip: #3 has a nice outside lounge area.

We very much enjoyed our two night stay at Talbot Heirs. After overcoming our initial trepidation about the physical location of the front door, we were very pleasantly surprised at the high standard of accommodation and the general ambience of the place. It is ideally located as a base from which to explore all the sights and sounds of Memphis. Very close to Beale Street and the Civil Rights Museum.
Our host gave us a thorough briefing on what to see and where to go, which we followed almost to the letter and were not disappointed.
We would definitely recommend Talbot Heirs to anyone new to Memphis and who wants to be at the centre of all things that make Memphis such an attractive place to visit.

We stayed for 3 nights and to
thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Tom and Sandy are excellent hosts who make you feel right at home. We stayed in room 7 and found it to be well appointed. The room was large and the kitchen area good sized.
The bed was ok, not great but I have no real complaint.
The room was on the side of The Flying Fish restaurant and when we opened the door you were met with the smell of fried fish. After a minute the smell went away and you don't smell it again. My wife has a sensitive nose and she only noticed it on entering. That is the only thing I would say caused any concern.
The hotel is centrally located and the parking garage is a short walk away.
We would definitely stay there again.

A friend and I had the privilege to stay at Talbot Heirs Guesthouse Room #5 for New Years 2011. The room was very spacious, shabby chic adorable with eclectic artwork as far as the eye could see. We had our own porch and were just a few blocks from all the attractions - Beale St, Rock & Soul Museum, Flight Wine Bar, Rendezvous, Right Across the street from The Peabody. I would go back to Talbot Heirs in a heartbeat. Our hosts, Tom & Sandy were Great, taking the time to map out locations we must see and getting to know us. Overall great experience!!! Go WIU!

Room Tip: Room #5 is adorable, quiet and spacious
