Alla's B&B was a dream! My husband and I felt right at home the moment we walked in and received a warm welcoming embrace from Alla. It was as if we had known her for years the way she loved on us. Her historical home had antiques from around the world! We shared dinner from a nearby Italian restaurant that provided FREE delivery to the B&B. The hot tub was lovely. Our bed very comfortable and breakfast, oh the breakfast was delicious!!! We will definitely be back to our "home away from home."
This was our first ever stay at a Bed and Breakfast. We did not quite know what to expect. We loved our Latte Room. We had a private entrance, which Vicki chose, specifically for us since we were first timers. Breakfast was to die for. I never knew you could have dessert at the third course. I feel so deprived that I missed this my whole life. LOL. The Best part..we could pick our own time for our yummy breakfast or was it the coffee and homemade biscotti delivered outside our room every morning or was it our great host and hostess Vicki and Wayne who are fun, friendly and made us feel so welcomed? We can't decide which it was so I guess this means we need to go back again to figure it out. Michael and Marika
Great location with so much within walking distance. Rooms are comfortable and there is something for just about any preference (larger rooms with beautiful antique furniture or more privacy in the Dickason Cottage out back). Beautiful historic home is impeccably decorated and managed. Michael was a wonderful host (and an excellent chef) and was very knowledgable about the area attractions and how best to get around. There will be some foot/car traffic noise late on the weekends but that's a result of being so close to the center of any big city. Can't wait for our next visit!
Was in need of a room for a few nights while wrapping up a holiday trip to town. The Daisy Polk was convenient to where I wanted to be, so I gave it a shot. It's a typical, well maintained B&B, along with all of the entertaining quirks that come with such an establishment. Breakfast, while sufficient, tried too hard. (Please stop flavoring your coffee!)
I found the room delightful and charming until I tried to go to sleep. All night long I kept hearing a swoosh sound every time a car passed by and my mind would say 'The window is open, the window is open.' I didn't get much sleep. When daylight came, I checked the window to find it is completely rotten, hence the open window. This is a big problem for this house because each time it rains it comes into the house and down the wall to the lower floor. Not only will it effect the walls, but encourage termites because of the moisture,and raises the energy bills. I encourage you to fix this problem to help preserve this wonderful house. I found Sebastian friendly and helpful and he made a great omlette. .
This is a very pleasant place to stay. No checking in with anybody necessary upon arrival, just enter the code they email to you and enter the room. Room was spacious and furnishings nice. The same access code gets you in the pantry where all the bottled water, sodas, coffee, and such like are located. These items are included in your stay. Overall, we were very pleased. The neighborhood was quite and there are many places to eat nearby. Would definitely stay here again!
The Corinthian exceeded our expectations! We travel somewhere every fall to celebrate our birthdays and this was possibly our best accommodations yet! Laurel couldn't have been more welcoming or accommodating. We held our gift exchange and celebration in the third story family room...it was enchanting! One of the couples we met from out of state goes there several times a year. If you want a charming, pampered getaway, The Corinthian is your place!
Our stay at this B&B transported my wife and I back in time. Alla is the simply the BEST and is a genuine lady with class. She ensured we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay and served the most delicious breakfast with many entertaining conversations. She is hilarious and loving! We will definitely return and recommend this to anyone who is staying in the area. Thank you Alla !!
We love staying at this B&B where we stayed on our wedding night. The one-room guesthouse provides solitude even though it is within the vibrant Uptown Dallas area. We love that we can stay in a peaceful place, yet walk to a number of restaurants along with other Uptown residents and visitors. This is a benefit because parking can be tricky, especially on the weekends. The last two times we stayed, there was construction going on that had us frustrated, but only temporarily. We had unfortunate timing. The breakfast NEVER disappoints. It is always beautiful AND delicious. We will be back each year as long as possible!
This really is a lovely place to stay at. The house is beautiful with so much history and the owners are a delight. But in fact the real diamond of the Daisy Polk is the chef, Michael. His breakfasts are so tasty and varied and you can while away hours just chatting to him. I couldn't recommend this bed and breakfast more - stay there whenever you're in Dallas! So much nicer than anaemic hotel with no character and unfriendly staff.
My husband and I stayed here to celebrate our anniversary. We had such a wonderful time. Jim is a great host - talking to him is like chatting with an old friend. He does an amazing job ensuring that everything is perfect for your stay. He even got us dinner reservations at a wonderful local restaurant including a complimentary appetizer. We loved visiting with the alpacas, the great pyrenees, and especially the really friendly cats. Our cabin was comfortable, cozy, and private. It felt like we were in our own little world. It snowed the night of our stay, and sitting in the hot tub in the snow was the perfect way to spend our evening. This was probably the most relaxing place I've ever stayed. I'd recommend it to anyone who loves animals and nature and is looking for a place to get away from it all without having to worry about anything.
We were in Dallas from November 9 to 12 November,after new York and Miami,came from Russia!Hotel Alla's Historical Bed & Breakfast, Spa & Cabana can be found on the Internet,struck the interior of the hotel,you will be in the Museum,slept on the antique bed, like a Princess!We are tired of the big hotels, where you are one of hundreds of clients,Alla feel at home!Delicious and healthy Breakfast(I was a kid), garden,Jacuzzi!We have a very remarkable impression about America with such hospitable people, as Alla!
The location was awesome! Never once had to use our vehicle. The room was great too. There could be some improvements on cleanliness but nothing major. I'm pretty easy on that. Any place is usually cleaner than my house! Breakfast was good, however, I wasn't a huge fan of the brunch on Sunday. Some of it was rather fancy and it wasn't labeled so I wasn't sure what it all was or was for. So the positives are the location and the room. the not as positives (but not negative, rather areas for improvement) are the cleanliness and the Sunday brunch.
We stayed two nights and the operators are really good folks. You will enjoy the alpacas, they are super quirky and cool. Very hospitable treatment here! Happy camper here! -Brock
We usually stay in "stand-alone" b&b's for the privacy factor. We really enjoyed our stay in this older home. Never heard our neighbors. The bed was very comfortable and the food, particularly, was outstanding. We will recommend Locust Street Inn to our friends.
We have stayed here twice, in two different rooms. We returned after the first visit because we felt welcomed, well accomodated, and catered to. The inn keeper is knowledgable about the area and was even able to direct us to a driver for the night at a reasonable cost. Our second visit was enjoyable as well. The breakfast was fabulous from the herbed sausage, peach pancake, seasoned potatoes, and rolls. The house was full and the company was enchanting; ranging from within the Dallas/Fort Worth area to returning customers from Australia! I know we will be back again!
We go to Dallas every year for a Cowboys football game and this year we decided to try a B and B. This was a lovely property in a quiet residential neighborhood. Very accommodating, clean and totally met our needs. We plan to return next year.
The Corinthian Inn is a lovely house with a gracious host. The room was decorated with care to preserve the theme of a grand manor, the bed was very comfortable. The only problem was the temperature -- the air conditioning blew too cold, so that we had to plug in a space heater. The breakfast was beautifully presented and tasty. Cookies and sweet breads were always available. The Inn was located within a block of a bus route to downtown. We would definitely stay at the Corinthian Inn again.
My partner and I, along with 2 friends from out of town, rented two rooms for the Halloween festivities in the Gayborhood right around the corner from the Daisy Polk. It was very loud due to the music, but that's why we were there! The Daisy Polk has private parking which is a huge benefit for any major event happening in the Gayborhood. This property is romantic and there are TONS of restaurants nearby, along with dance clubs, bars, the public library and a grocery store all within walking distance. We stayed in the main house, our room was very nice and the bed extremely comfortable! I loved the antique furniture and the beauty of the entire property is amazing. Continental breakfast was a waffle with fresh fruit, coffee, and juice. A full breakfast menu is available for an additional $20. I will pick the Daisy Polk from now on, rather than staying at the Warwick Melrose Hotel. Wayne & Patrick were very nice and accommodating hosts, thank you!
Gorgeous home in the Oaklawn area close to everything! Amazing service and the accommodations exceeded out expectations! The value of the room was better than the gamble of Priceline or hotels.com! We paid $129 and got free parking fabulous breakfast and the convenience of being around the event we were attending¿¿
We were celebrating our 9th wedding anniversary and stayed at the Nancee Gee Cottage. Check in and check out was quick and easy. Bed was soft and comfortable. TV was great. It had cable and a DVR and it was placed perfectly for watching in bed. Lots of pillows to prop up with. Loved that it had a decent sized mini frig and microwave and coffee maker. Good water pressure in the shower. The hot tub was private and a nice way to end the evening. Jim made sure we had everything we needed. Breakfast in our room was NICE! We love sleeping in. The animals on the property were fantastic! We loved them ALL. Valentino was our favorite alpaca though. Very friendly and affectionate. Loved petting him. Loved watching the Great Pyrenees "work" and protect the herd. Do the "alpaca experience". It was loads of fun and very informative. Loved spending time with Jim's personal dogs, Cookie the schnauzer, Rascal the schnoodle and BBA (grin) (the standard poodle). I made friends with a black cat too. Watching the 2 kinds of geese (about 7 total) waddling around was amusing. There were ducks in the pond. My husband got to get in some fishing time while I walked around petting and watching animals. Love the fountain in the pond and fountains in the gardens by the office and bar. Love the gardens and lights.Lots of fun things to look at in the gardens. Fun decor. Very pretty at night. Enjoyed visiting with everyone at the outdoor bar at the end of the evening. I was looking for quirky and fun and quiet and romantic and I found it all in one place. I was so glad we stayed 2 nights. Bring your sense of humor and be prepared to laugh.
Wife and I stayed for 3 nights celebrating our 11th anniversary. Had a great time! Breakfast - served in bed - was superb. My wife is an animal lover and really enjoyed spending time with the alpacas. Overall quite a memorable experience!
