We aren't big bed and breakfast people but had a lovely stay. The proprietor, Sophie is very friendly and extremely accommodating. She takes the attitude that her home is your home while you visit. Anything you need, she is quick to come to your assistance. Breakfast and snacks were more than we could expect. She gave us choices, which was very helpful since I have several dietary restrictions. If you like bed and breakfasts, we would definitely recommend you stay.

We were looking for a place to stay in Wilmington to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday which happened to fall on Labor Day Weekend. Many of the hotels were overpriced due to the holiday and several of the bed and breakfasts were filled. I came across Port City Guest House and knew immediately it was where we wanted to stay based off previous guests reviews. When I met Sophie the owner I felt like I was meeting a celebrity because so many of the reviews spoke of how wonderful she was and let me tell you she truly is wonderful. We have stayed in several bnbs and she is by far the most hospitaible owner we have experienced. Upon arrival I was greeted with a hug and from that moment on we became friends. The food was incredible and we enjoyed dining with the other guests. There are 4 rooms so our breakfast was intimate with 1 or 2 other couples depending upon the day. We throughly enjoyed our stay and will most definitely be back.

My wife and I visited Wilmington the 2nd week of July and stayed at the Port City Guest House. There is no way the rooms could disappoint. What you see is what you get. They're beautiful. Sophie, the owner of the inn is wonderful, is a real treat. When the term "southern hospitality" was coined, they had Sophie in mind. Sophie is extraordinarily gracious and generous, she certainly loves her job and the guests she serves. Highly recommended.

Sophie is the greatest! Every morning starts with meal that is made to perfection. The house is beautiful and convenient to downtown attractions. My husband and I spent our anniversary week at the Port City Guest House in the Green room. The only complaint we had, we were so full from breakfast we had to skip lunch. Haha, a must stay in Wilmington, NC.

I surprised my husband with a trip to Wilmington for his birthday. We stayed at the Port City Guest House (B&B). This is a GREAT place to stay, Sophie was the most amazing hostess! Upon my husband and I arrival, she had a birthday cake, a card and a plate of home cooked salmon patties (Melt in your mouth) to welcome us and to wish my husband a Happy Birthday. She makes you feel very comfortable and right at home the moment you walk through her doors.. Her house is beautiful, clean and the rooms are a nice size. Sophie is an excellent cook, her breakfasts were mouth watering and made to order with many choices! She made sure you didn't leave her home unsatisfied or hungry. Sophie is very knowledgeable about restaurants and different activities/entertainment in Wilmington. Her house is located in the Historic District and is an easy 10 minute drive to the downtown area and riverfront. Sophie we will be back for another stay very soon and thank you very much for an wonderful experience and an enjoyable stay. The Alexanders

My wife and I stayed here for a week following a family member's wedding. Sophie is a wonderful hostess and excellent cook! The house is amazing, incredibly comfortable and close to everything. Love the off street parking. We are already planning our return trip! Don't forget to visit with Chase!

Sophie was the most amazing Madame Curator! Her hospitality, warm demeanor, and unwavering commitment to her guests was truly aw-inspiring. The room was very large, with an attached bath, complete with a fireplace (didn't use it but it added to the overal feel of the room). The house is a large Colonial, complete with high ceilings and classic decor. The breakfast was impressive--to say the least. It is made to order, and so many choices! Eggs and bacon with toast, and then waffles with homemade whip cream the next day (with more eggs). We felt as though Sophie really cared that our stay was amazing. And it was! We will be back.

Everything about this Bed and Breakfast far exceeded our expectations! The Breakfast was made to order and was exquisite! There was no excuse being hungry because Ms. Sophie made sure we were all filled to the brim! Not one complaint about this B&B. Will definitely be back to visit with Ms. Sophie and her sweet dog Chase!

My husband and I stayed at this B & B for three nights recently and were delighted with our choice. We were the only guests at the time and our host, Sophie, couldn't have been more hospitable. Her house is beautiful and full of antique furniture, her breakfasts were superb and set us up for the day and the location of the house is an easy 30 minute walk to the downtown area and river, or a six dollar, plus tip, taxi ride. Sophie gave us a lift one night, rather than call a taxi for us, and told us to telephone when we wanted picking up. She also did very enticing afternoon tea and gave us chips and fruit for our onward journey. Most unusual in a B & B facility, and most welcome, was a laundry room for guest's use. Thank you Sophie for a very enjoyable stay. Barbara and Dave, Ireland
