    Historical Traveler Reviews Ashton's Bed and Breakfast New Orleans

    Fantastic

    from

    The home is beautiful, Patrick and Karma are very friendly and gracious hosts and the food is absolutely fantastic!

    A wonderful place!

    from

    Ashton's is a beautiful, graceful southern mansion in the heart of New Orleans. The rooms manage to be both spacious and homey, and are impeccably decorated. Patrick and Karma are hosts par excellence. I recommend the bananas foster waffles for breakfast... if you dare!

    They're deadly good.

    I Ate Too Much

    from

    Of course, I expect to eat too much when I go to New Orleans but still...

    First, they stuffed us full of excellent breakfasts.

    Then they left all sorts of snacks and drinks out where we could get them.

    Then they convinced us to go to Drago's and attempt suicide by something innocuously called 'The Seafood Feast'.

    I thought I was going to burst.

    Seriously, Patrick and Karma (the proprietors) are two of the nicest, most hospitable people I have ever met.

    Ashton's is GORGEOUS

    from

    We love New Orleans. The French Quarter, the food, the Garden District, the waterfront, the music, the food, Magazine Street, the food... But now it's more: it's where we stay! Ashton's B&B makes your visit to New Orleans the ultimate experience. You get to stay in a fabulous antebellum mansion, and your host was actually born in the city, so you get the real story, the best advice, the insider information that makes New Orleans such a magical treat. And ooohhhh that coffee - you will want to get some from Patrick before you leave for home.

    Absolutely wonderful

    from

    Ashtons is one of the best places we have ever stayed. The house itself is beautiful with a wondeful backyard and front porch. Very very romantic. Our room was huge, beautiful and very comfortable. Patrick is an amazing cook--the breakfasts were wonderful! He also makes dead-on restaurant/food choice recommendations. We would not have had the New Orleans experience we had if we had stayed elsewhere. We are hoping to return in December!

    All around great experience.

    from

    We just returned from a three night stay at Ashton's. It is an unbelievable value considering the beautiful accomodations, wonderful food and endless amenities. It's a nice distance from the French Quarter, a quick cab ride.

    Nice Place

    from

    We really enjoyed New Orleans. The B&B was nice and the people friendly. Only bad part was the walk back from the French Quarter. The area around the B&B is really shady. Cabs are the only was to go. We are big city people, but we did not feel comfortable walking back Esplanade.

    Unsurpassed Excellence at Ashtons!

    from

    Patrick and Karma Ashton are gracious and knowledgeable hosts. They have thoughtfully considered every detail. Breakfast is simply without peer! Ashtons is conveniently located just outside the French Quarter; accessible yet quiet and private. The residence is stately, beautifully, yet casually decorated. Relaxing beneath the 300 year-old oak in the back yard, reading a book, while smelling jasmine and trumpeter flowers is a wonderful break from the bustle of sightseeing.

    My wife, daughter and I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in New Orleans.

    Best of NewOrleans!!!

    from

    While we were in Montgomery, AL we made a spir of the moment decision to go to New Orleans. I checked the internet for bed and breakfasts in or near the French Quarter...The very nicest ad that caught my eye was the Ashton. I placed a call to reserve. The woman who took the call was exceedingly pleasent. When I found that it was 9 blocks to the Quarter, I hesitated, then she assured me the walk down the oak lined Esplanade was very pleasent and a quiet and grasious way to see the Quarater and experience the old Spanish homes that studded the walk. She also said" Please come and stay with us- I know you will love it here - I will hold 3 of our best rooms for you to choose from. Wow. Her directions were perfect. We were thirlled with our choise. The home is beautiful.

    The rooms are well airconditioned with controls in each room that are perfectly decorated. In the back yard stands a huge 300 year old live oak tree with pretty flowers about-a great table and chairs & bar for lounging. The master of the house, Peter, is a computer gurue, and has wireless internet available for all his guests. He also fixed my computer's internet settings so I could receive my e-mails and surf the web. But the very best of all was Peter's cooking. The breakfasts were out of this world. He has kindly shared 2 reciepes with me. We will tell everyone of this great place and the great people who own and run it. ps: you do not have to walk to town...there is a bus stop just across the street or a cab ride for $4.00. And the best local flavor restraunts and jazz a few blocks away. Be sure to try it. You will NOT be disappointed-C&B Forrester

    Fantastic Stay!!

    from

    My wife and I had a great 4 days at this bed and breakfast. I did a ton of online research for B&B's and finally decided upon Aston's. I was a little nervous about what to expect before I got there but it turned out to be the best experience we could have had for our 10th wedding anniversary.

    We were served a great breakfast each day that kept us full until the midafternoon despite a whole lot of French Quarter walking. Even though Patrick (the owner) denies it I'ld swear he's had some culinary training. The owners, Patrick and Karma Ashton were easy going, helpful with advice on what to do and what not to do in the quarter. They've lived in the quarter and know the restaurants, bars and even the street scams to avoid.

    Ashton's Bed and Breakfast is off Esplanade about 9 blocks from the quarter. We bought RTA passes and made the trip to the quarter by bus, walking and taxi. All three were easy, even in the chilly weather of January. It was just enough insulation from the quarter to make it quietly romantic and yet close enough that we could be there in just a few minutes. If you have any issues with waiting for a bus or spending about six dollars on a taxi, you should just stay in the quarter. But if you don't and you want to stay in a clean well-run place with nice people I can't recommend this place enough.

    We stayed in the Napoleon room which was the largest, had it's own room thermostat, four poster bed and a large clawfoot tub, but I was allowed to check out the other rooms and I was impressed by every one of them, especially the one with a large claw foot tub that had jacuzzi jets built in.

They are extremely curious and as our guide was saying, leaving anything on top of the water would cause them to come over as their sense of smell was really good. To demonstrate this, he started playing with a rawhide dog bone on the water to get them to come closer so he could touch them. It defied believe how comfortable he was with his arm in the water, while telling us he had never set foot on a plane, and after 911 never ...

    ... up to the Greek inspired building adds to it's intimidating ambiance as you look round and imagine how rich the owners were from slavery. As we took a tour, marvelling at the plantations size and extravagance felt mandatory, however the museum did well to evidence that the magnificence was not due to the owners but mostly the slaves. After this we then drove continuously before reaching Texas and stopping just outside Fort ...

    Shortly after we arrived we were off for a stroll through
    the French Quarter and Bourbon Street. Our first stop was in a sleazy little
    bar where one bartender had the look of a long term crack addict. After we were
    there for about ten minutes Karen pointed out that we had found ourselves in a

I bought myself a leopard print beanie with New Orleans written on the top of it whilst we were waiting for everyone to finish up in the first bar :) After I bought my hat we walked to he bar everyone was at and they were all out on the little balcony drinking and shouting at us from above. We spent quite a while ...
