My husband and I spent the weekend there in March and we stayed in the room called Joy. Scott was a wonderful host and knowledgeable of the Wilmington area and had great suggestions for restaurants and shopping. I will definitely stay there again!

My boyfriend and I spent a weekend in February at this charming Historic Bed and Breakfast in the heart of downtown. We stayed in the room called Love; bright, clean and welcoming. Comfortable bed (ironed sheets!) and spotless bathroom. Attentive, welcoming, and knowledgeable innkeepers. There was also wi-fi all throughout the house. Easy check-in and check-out. Delicious breakfasts with candlelight,...

What a delight! We stayed one night and last minute but will make a point to come back for another weekend. Lovely home in a great location. Walked to Circa for dinner. Parking was no problem, right out front. Breakfast was superb. Amazing French toast, presentation and atmosphere with china and candles. The only thing with more character than the...

Elegance, charm, warmth, style, savoir faire; I could go on. My wife and I arrived in Wilmington late after a twelve hour drive north and found there was not a room to be had for miles around. A very helpful staff member at the Hilton we tried to check into made a half dozen calls before finding the only available...

Our first time with a B and B and we are hooked! From the moment we arrived we were greeted by Scott who was both hospitable and knowledgeable about Wilmington! Our room - the Peace Room - was large, bright and very comfortable. The added drinks sidebar in the hallway was a great touch! But it was the breakfast that...

The located just about 7 blocks east from the Riverwalk area and around the corner from Bellamy Mansion. Not too far of a walk, but the house is located on the edge of one local told us as 'ghetto'. When we arrived there was oodles of trash and mattresses leaning against the tree adjacent to then inn. Not a good...

We welcome all guests comments, whether it is good or bad. Having been in the business for twenty years, feedback is good, it means growth to me. With this being said, I feel as though a few issues need to be addressed. The Taylor House Inn is located on a quiet one-way brick paved street in Historic downtown Wilmington. Our...
