The Epitome of Southern Charm ---

5 on June 15, 2016

Your stay in this romantic B&B will transport you back in time and your gracious hostess, Cindee Quick, will treat you wiht genuine hospitality. She will start your day with a delicious breakfast and provide advice on the best restaurants and sites in NOLA. This is our second stay, but will not be our last.


Perfect place to stay in New Orleans

5 on June 13, 2016

I looked at several places to stay for our anniversary trip to New Orleans and kept coming back to the Southern Comfort in my quest. I make the perfect choice! It was great close to the street car line, quiet, unassuming, and beautiful. the location was just right close enough to all the areas of New Orleans and out of the hustle & bustle of the French Quarter. Cindee could not have been a more gracious host. The food was out of this world. Our room was at the back of the house and except for the morning rain storms could not have been more quiet and restful.


Perfect Accommodations For My Wife, Granddaughter and Me

4.6 on June 12, 2016

We took our 12 year old granddaughter to New Orleans in March, 2016 and stayed three nights at the Southern Comfort B&B. The two room suite was perfect for us. The owner, Cindee Quick, was a very gracious hostess and most helpful in recommending attractions in the area. Her breakfasts were a perfect way to start our day. Cindee recommended an air boat tour in Allemand (only about 45 minutes southwest of New Orleans) that was a highlight of our visit


Wonderful B&B

5 on June 11, 2016

We are repeat customers to the Southern Comfort B&B and will allow our lovely and lively host, Cindee, to pamper us again when we return. There is no other place we would rather be when we visit New Orleans because what can be better than a short walk to the trolley, a wonderful front porch with a swing, filling and delicious breakfasts, and morning conversations with Cindee and wonderful and interesting guests from other parts of the country and the world? And oh, that morning coffee! No worries about doing dishes or washing sheets or whether a deposit will be returned -- just a little pampering and a lot of comfort in the lively city of New Orleans. What could be better?


Great Location, Great Host

4.0 on March 07, 2016

Whether you are visiting New Orleans for Mardi Gras or not, Southern Comfort B&B is a great place to stay. Located in the Garden District, it is away from the crowded tourist area but only a trolley ride away (we actually walked to Bourbon Street one morning) if you choose to venture there. Mardi Gras parades pass two blocks away (again, close but not too close). The rooms are lovely and spacious, the front porch inviting, and owner/hostess, Cindee Quick, greeted us each morning with a delicious breakfast with a local flare. She knows the area well and directed us to great restaurants as well as added some history and details about the various Parade Krewes to our Mardi Gras experience. Stay at Southern Comfort B&B for a wonderful New Orleans visit.


Amazing B&B!!

5 on February 25, 2016

My wife and I stayed at the Southern Comfort B&B in December of 2015 and I must say that it was all we could've hoped for and more. Cindee, (the owner) was the most welcoming and gracious host I've experienced at a B&B. Her knowledge of NOLA and where to go and what to do based on our interests saved us so much time instead of having to do it ourselves with no clue. She broke down all the districts and history of each and really made us feel at home the entire time we were there. Oh and the best part of our stay was her cooking!! Each morning we were treated to home cooked breakfasts, each one with NOLA flair and so delicious! We had a wonderful time and will definitely be back to Southern Comfort the next time we head to NOLA!


Lovely B&B

5 on May 11, 2015

Lovely B&B and Cindee the owner made our visit special. We have stayed at many B&B and this one is on top of list. Location ,Breakfast, Rooms and Cindee made our 50 th Anniversary perfect.


Just what we were looking for!

5 on April 15, 2015

This was our first trip to NOLA so we were not sure if we wanted to stay in the french quarter or another neighborhood. After reading many reviews, we settled on Southern Comfort in the Garden District and we couldn't have been more pleased. Being only 2 blocks from the St. Charles Trolley allows you to explore the quarter at your leisure, but coming back to the front porch for a nightcap was the best way for us to end the evening. Quiet neighborhood, great breakfast, comfortable room and the best hostess we have encountered made this a very enjoyable and relaxing trip. Cindee knows all the best places for everything you could want to see and experience so don't hesitate to ask. (Be sure to take the air boat swamp tour) Highly recommended.


Location, Accommodations, Food

5 on April 14, 2015

The location is great: two blocks from a trolley stop, yet away from the traffic! The breakfasts are like eating in a five star restaurant! We liked sitting with fellow guests at one table in the lovely dinning room. Cindee is a wealth of information about places to go, things to do. She suggested we go on this Garden District walk and then go to the Commander's Palace (a landmark we learned later) afterwards for lunch (she even made the reservations for us). We had a wonderful time on the walk and didn't realize how lucky we were to get into the restaurant until we were there! We also took her advice about which plantations to see and weren't disappointed. Our accommodations were spacious and comfortable: we had a suite of two rooms and a bath-- the furniture was as comfy to sit or sleep on as it looked (we've been burned in the past). Very nice set of rooms, with a view of the patio below. We arrived late in the evening, after a long day of driving. My husband appreciated being able to get a beer from the fridge (leave your money in the basket) and I helped myself to an orange from a basket. I would highly recommend staying here again. The location, the accommodations, the food, the proprietor-- all were good!


Southern Comfort and hospitality for real!

4.2 on March 21, 2015

Our stay at Southern Comfort B&B was great, hospitality couldn't have been better. The house is as nice as it is in the pictures. The accommodations were top notch, bed was very comfortable. We stayed four days, the breakfasts were different every morning, you could taste the TLC in every bite. The early morning coffee that was made available for me was greatly appreciated. The location of the B&B is another plus, we were just two blocks from the Street Car and used it everyday, didn't need a car. The proprietress's knowledge of New Orleans was very interesting and a great help to us. .
