Best Accommodations in Norwalk Ohio

5 on May 02, 2018

I have been traveling to Norwalk most every quarter for over 20 years for business. I can honestly say that the Georgian Manor Inn provides the best accommodations in the area. The owners, Gene and Judy, are wonderful hosts and serve made to order breakfasts for their guests. The rooms are cozy and comfortable and the gardens are beautiful. If you are staying in Norwalk, stay here.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for taking the time to post a review and for your kind words. A benefit of Inn Keeping is meeting so many nice people like you making time go so quickly. So it is hard to believe that we've been open for little over 20 yrs and you've been staying with us about every quarter for all this time. Your stays are enjoyable as is the conversation.

The best bed and breakfast in Ohio

Our stay at the Georgian Manor was a complete pleasure. We had a beautiful room, enjoyed the common areas with our local friends and had the most generous and delicious breakfasts served on delicate china and crystal in a gorgeous dining room. We loved our stay and highly recommend the Georgian Manor.

We had stayed at the Georgian Manor many years ago, had very good memories of our stay, and were happy to have the opportunity to stay again. We spent two nights, which means two fabulous breakfasts! The inn is spotlessly clean, and the proprietors bent over backwards to make our stay perfect. Highest recommendation.

We loved staying at the Georgian Manor. The home is exquisitely decorated with the finest features and furniture, the rooms are spacious and comfortable and every breakfast was scrumptious and beautifully presented and prepared. Everything was first class and we really enjoyed our stay. Thank you! We'll definitely be back again.

A perfect place to stay and relax

The Georgian Manor Inn is one of our favorite b & b's. It's such a lovely home. Gene greets us as soon as we walk in. He helped us with maps and locating places of interest as well as recommending Berry's in downtown Norwalk, which we enjoyed for dinner. Judy's breakfasts are outstanding. Presented beautifully and taste delicious. This time I relaxed on the screened in porch and on the back patio and enjoyed the flowers in the backyard. We definitely will be back.

Georgian Manor Inn -- a great place to stay

5 on April 17, 2017

The area around Norwalk is charming, the Inn is beautifully preserved and elegantly appointed; the room was comfy; the hosts were friendly and helpful with good advice about the area, and the breakfasts were beautiful and delicious -- what more could one want from a weekend stay at a B&B? We took advantage of their anniversary special -- a really good value. Highly recommended.

Excellent property
