Horrible

1.4 on February 16, 2016

We arrived at the bed and breakfast around 7pm on a Saturday after a long day running around Orlando. My husband and entered our room and heard extremley loud music and shouting. They did not inform us of a wedding going on directly below us in the courtyard. So instead of a relaxing stay at the bed and breakfast we had loud blasting music and cheers until 10:30 pm. Then the wedding party moved inside where they talked loudly outside our room until 1 am or so. The staff did not care at all. They did nothing to compensate us for our horrible night of little sleep. You would think they would inform customers of loud events. WE are a young couple who does not normally spend a large amount on a room. WE thought we would have a special weekend at a romantic bed and breakfast. We were very wrong. I also emailed the bed and breakfast twice and never had a reply.


Horrible experience

5 on February 15, 2016

We stayed in the Welburne Suits. I booked my room 6 months in advance. 1 week before check in, I called to double check on my reservation. Good thing I did because I originally reserved my room for 2 nights at $150 a night. When I called they told me I'd have to pay $185 a night and put me in a completely different room. When we arrived for check in all of the guests reservations were wrong. Several people had to find other hotels to stay in. The room we were in had paint chips on the walls, the bathroom floor was cracked (had found a FINGER NAIL in the crack), the vase in the living room had dried up snot stuck to the side of it, and mildew in the shower. I have pictures for proof. I would not waist money staying here.


Night at Courtyard

Nelson, the desk clerk, was awesome. Very friendly and informative. Catered to our every need. A lot of responsibility with everyone checking in at one time. He handled it graciously and very professional.


A perfect stay for our perfect wedding

The Courtyard at Lake Lucerne is an ideal location for a wedding! We loved the charm, the history and the unique features this venue had to offer. The location is perfect in Orlando, centered in downtown and easy for everyone to get to. The staff are very friendly and great to work with. We had Angie help us and she is amazing, very responsive and patient with me with all of my questions. The venue itself is stunning, it has a charm all in its own and very little decor is needed. We got married in October, it was warm but no rain. At night the lights strung up in the courtyard were so pretty. If you are looking for a venue that is unique, this is a great place to pursue. They have great wedding packages and are affordable, they make it very easy on you! We were so pleased from start to finish and loved this venue! We stayed October 9th and loved the room, gorgeous decor, comfortable bed, huge bathroom and very clean.


Nice B&B in the middle of downtown

We had a wonderful stay... Very beautiful estate... Remember to ask for the free wine... Very nice after a day of travel... And they let us keep our truck and uhaul an extra night so we didn't have to pull it to Cocoa Beach for one night we traveled there.. Super nice management!! Will stay again for sure!! Rooms very clean!


Beautiful place! Very romantic!!

We're staying in Norment Parry house where the office is and absolutely loving it!! Me and my husband got a room upstairs (#103) and it is absolutely gorgeous!! Huge bathroom with a bathtub, private outside sitting area, antique furniture, very clean and tranquil just what we needed after a long road trip from NJ. Breakfast was good, different variaties of food to satisfy everyone. Sad we were only staying here for one night, I'm gonna miss this place. But we will definitely be back the first chance we get!


Wonderful fun place

Wedding DJ Problems

2.8 on March 10, 2015

This is the only bed and breakfast in Orlando. My family stayed in the Wellborn suites for two nights before cruising out of Port Canaveral. Unfortunately - our first night there was a Saturday evening that the B&B was hosting two wedding receptions at the same time. After driving all night and spending the morning and afternoon at Universal - we came back to two DJs playing loud dance music on each side of our room. Our room being the buffer between two wedding receptions created a maddening stereo music effect. The suites being old historic apartments give them no noise dampening, so in our kitchen you could hear every note of Taylor Swift's 'blank space' song being played at full club volume... In the main bedroom you could hear every guitar lick of the other wedding reception's 80s music. The rest of the suite you heard both sets of music playing at the same time... and that is like listening to two radios playing songs on top of each other... That will make you go crazy. The B&B does warn of wedding receptions being allowed music until 10:30pm when you book. However - I never would imagine that the suites would be used as the noise buffer for two separate outdoor wedding receptions. The room is comfortable and not terribly worn out like other reviews have suggested. However - the housekeeping leaves something to be desired when you find dust bunnies under the bed. The service I received from the staff before I booked was also very professional and nice. The location is nice, but gave a very sour first impression when I first pulled in the hotel's additional parking. A large group of homeless individuals had taken over a good part of the parking lot. The hotel staff must have ask them to leave because that was never a problem the rest of our stay. The B&B feels like it is under a highway, but there are no noise or traffic problems that come from its proximity to the toll road.


Great price

4.4 on November 03, 2014

Loved the retro look of the building and the tucked away location. Good value for location. Only complaints are the grounds keeper starts the blower at 7 a.m. every morning and the guests above us, you could hear every move they make. We were awoken a lot because they were walking around all night. Thin ceilings.


A Bed and Breakfast with no breakfast

3.0 on October 28, 2014

My husband spent the first night of our honeymoon here and then went back on our fifth anniversary. Both times we were told there was no breakfast, each time with a different excuse but only a recommendation of a restaurant in walking distance. The first time we were understanding. The second time we were not. We will not be staying here again.
