Historical Traveler Reviews Brittania & W.E. Mauger Estate B&B Albuquerque
Superb Heritage Homestay Experience
The Mauger heritage home B&B is ideally located in a quiet neighborhood between Old Town and downtown. Parking is available on site.
The new owner, Tammy, has been managing the place since August of last year. She was a delightful host, much fun to chat with, and very helpful indeed. She's really the heart of the place.
The home has been renovated and re-decorated with its history in mind, but not overdone. The decorations for the holidays complimented the heritage ambiance.
We had the cheapest room which was plush, clean and nicely decorated with historical touches. The bathroom was clean and modern. The bed, large and plush. We got in early and were able to peek at other rooms which were just as cozy looking. The large suite downstairs has a contemporary design including a large screen plasma TV.
Breakfast was delightful and plentiful, with Tammy's delicious homemade quiche and bread. There were also evening treats on hand. The Wi-Fi worked fine, which is essential for those of us with laptops. The Mauger is gay and lesbian-friendly.
As a travel professional and guidebook author, I have not a single negative point to report. I only regret that we had just a single night to spend in Albuquerque!
Loved the Mauger!
The Mauger B&B ( [----] ) is a wonderful place to stay! The two of us stayed 4 nights over Christmas, and it was utterly delightful. The staff were friendly, the room was spotlessly clean, the breakfasts are incredibly delicious (somehow there's nothing as tantalizing as maple syrup wafting up to your third-floor room in the morning), and it was great to talk with the other guests at breakfast or during the evening over wine and cheese. This is what separates B&B's from anonymous hotels and motels and what makes the stay more fun! We encountered other couples, families with children, and folks travelling with their dogs and the Mauger seems to be a good fit for all types of travellers. We will stay here again!
Loved the period furniture and the photos showing how the Mauger was restored to its original. The holiday decorations were absolutely charming. Their menus from Albuquerque restaurants were helpful for selecting dining choices. The only thing is the satellite TV selections were a bit unusual. We did however get to know and love the NASA channel's "Video File" program.
We stayed during the heat of the Summer in July. We were told that the B&B had air conditioning. Upon our arrival, we found out this to be an incorrect statement. All the windows in our room were open. We could have slept in the rental car and had a better nights sleep than in our room! The bath room was very small and the shower was down the hall. In our room, but seperate. The next morning in the shower, my husband had to repair it before we could use it. The owners were out of town and the staff was busy with breakfast. Next we discovered that the in room snacks were not gratis as we assumed. We were paying over $160 per night and you'd think the drinks and snacks would be included. NO WAY! They charge $1 and up per drink or snack. Mind you these were snack bags that were sold in store for about 12 for $4.00 and they were charging a buck a piece or MORE! No water, no drinks, had to pay for everything. Breakfast was PRE-packaged. The staff just warmed and served.
This was the worst we have ever had! And if you're wondering why didn't I contact the B&B? I did!! At the time of our stay, the staff "couldn't do anything" because the owners were out of town. The owners didn't even reply to my complaints. I also asked for a price adjustment since we repaired the place! Never got a response back. I would NOT recommend staying here. At least at a hotel we would have had air conditioning!
Best wishes for a better stay in Albuquerque! - K
I am very sorry for your poor experience at the Mauger Estate B&B, but think that it is a bit unfair for you to write a review 6 months after your stay.
To all review readers - please do not give merit to this review, as the B&B is under new ownerhship!
Enjoyed the Mauger and its innkeepers
The Mauger enjoys a good location just within the confines of downtown and a little over a mile from Old Town. Mike, Tammy and Julia are friendly, helpful, responsive to guests' needs and overall excellent innkeepers. The rooms are comfortable, breakfasts are wonderful, the afternoon wine and munchies are lovely and the night-time chocolate chip cookies are a highlight. A real cozy atmosphere where you're comfortable "coming home," sitting in the living room and relaxing after a day of running around, sightseeing or whatever... All that a b&b should be.
A pleasant stay at the MaugerB&B
Tammy greeted us at the door for our one-night stay. Our room, 1B, was spacious and comfortable. Bathroom was small but adequate, except for the sink - very old with a hot and a cold faucet. Since we had to depart for the airport very early AM, Tammy prepared bagged breakfasts for us to take along. A pleasant surprise since we assumed we'd miss the breakfast part of the B&B experience. We wish Tammy and her husband much success as the new owners of this historic B&B.
To our future guests - please let us know while you are at the Inn if you have comments or suggestions that you think might help us improve!
Nicely Renovated Victorian-styled historical landmark with enthusiastic staff
The B&B is a nicely renovated Victorian styled house. Except the sink in my 2nd floor room which is in dire need of replacement, everything else on the 2nd floor are in very good condition (all rooms on the 2nd floor are open so I had a chance to check them all out). The dining areas are also neatly decorated. One interestingfact is that bathroom facilities are sometimes in odd places, due to the fact that the house was built as a family house rather than a B&B.
One needs to keep in mind that it's a historical hotel and don't expect a plasma TV to be hanging on the wall.
The staff are very friendly in a typical B&B fashion. On my last day, I had a 7am flight and didn't expect any breakfast at all. To my delight, they offered me a breakfast bag for me to bring to the airport (I later found out that it's a typical thing that they do for all guests)
Location wise, it's very closed to downtown, which has no value to leisure tourists, to speak the truth. The historical downtown is a short drive away, but really, people come to New Mexico for outdoor. The hotel is a short distance from I-25 / airport which matters more to me.
A Purrrfect Place to Stay!
A Purrrfect Place to Stay!
Tammy Ross and her husband purchased the Mauger Estate B &B in June, 2006. Tammy, the owner-innkeeper, is a tremendous young woman and her staff are also dynamic. The B&B is a beautifully restored Queen Anne mansion. We stayed in room 2A and absolutely loved it. The bed was sooooo comfortable and the room was spacious, with a nice sitting area and very comfortable chairs. The inn is kept exceptionally clean. The inn was filled with guests, but it was very quiet; we never heard any noise. It is in a nice neighborhood and within easy walking distance of downtown (Cental Ave) to the restaurants and to places to get on the bus you want. Old Town is a little further walk, but we enjoyed it. The breakfasts are 'to die for'....between Tammy and Julie, you will not want to leave. You will remember the Blueberry Bread Pudding and the Decadent Waffles for a very long time. Breakfast meats, fresh fruits, cereal, yogurt, juice, coffee, etc. are available every morning. The sunny breakfast room starts your day off nicely. They helped us with directions and stored our luggage the day we left (we didn't leave until late afternoon). We spent 3 nites in Sept. '06 and highly recommend it. If we ever return to Albuquerque, we will make reservations at this B&B! Thank you Tammy, Julie and staff!
I traveled to Albuquerque with my grandson and stayed in this B&B for our first experience in a B&B! The staff was friendly and met all of out needs. The rooms are awesome! Our family is planning to return to Albuquerque to this B&B for Thanksgiving, we know that staying there we'll have a Great experience and many things to be thankful for. Their breakfast is wonderful!! We look forward to our return trip!
Awesome Staff made all the difference
If you prize service high on your list, this is the crew to stay with! The staff is warm, friendly, and accomodating! The rooms are charming, clean, comfortable - you feel like you're staying with relatives! I'm picky and I can't say enough good things about our stay!

When one balloonist threw the ring on the pole, the crowd went wild, cheering and clapping in congratulations. After that challenge they move across the field, trying to drop a weighted marker into designated squares from just a few inches off the ground to 200 feet in the air. Again, they are not allowed to touch ...
... relaxing by the pool as the temp was around 95 f and the driving is quite tiring, although we here by all accounts that the UK has equally been as hot! Off into Albuquerque in a mo before embarking on our next route which is a 220 mile trip to Holbrook in Arizona. Just to say that although we do have WiFi, it is not particularly quick so some of the photos are taking an age to download so on some blogs may be coming through a day or so late.

Early start this morning, dark as we got through Albuquerque, very pretty with the city lights twinkling. Wind at our back today, made good time, long day but good travelling, stayed the night in Elk City OK. Nice KOA with an on site cafe, pizza for dinner! Hoped to watch the Cardinals, darn rain delay, caught up with Idol ...
... we thought it was too much hassle and just decided to head straight to hotel. According to the satnav we were 5 minutes away!?! It was the perfect time - we checked in and headed to the pool for a few hours of sunbathing in the gorgeous cloudless heat. There was a really loud group of kids with a large family and one of the little ones would stop staring at us but we blocked them out by listening to ...
