Great Suite - Great Location

4.2 on January 16, 2018

We had a Queen Suite with Fireplace in the sitting room and bedroom and a full kitchen. With the exception of an ant issue in the kitchen and semi-clogged drain in the bathroom, everything was great.


Very Nice Weekend

4.4 on January 14, 2018

Our stay at Bluff View was very enjoyable. Our room was comfortable, clean, and the view was excellent. Of course the location of Bluff View can't be beat for its proximity to downtown, the Aquarium, the river front, the museum. Local dining was very nice, if a bit pricey. We will certainly return.


Breakfast Unsatisfactory

3.8 on January 08, 2018

I question whether this lodging can legitimately call itself a Bed and Breakfast. Breakfast was not offered in the home that we stayed in. Instead, we were given a voucher to take the the coffee shop next door. The voucher specified the strict rules about each category of food that we were allowed to have. The food was mediocre. A big disappointment.


Very Pleasant Stay...Highly Recommend

4.4 on January 02, 2018

Comfortable, welcoming, extremely convenient location to downtown attractions and museum. We will certainly be returning to Bluff View.


Beautiful yet needing

Public Restaurant down stairs... very noisy at night. Had to ask for extra coffee every morning. The coffee maker was in the common area for the 4 rooms... small pot. Would have been willing to make it ourselves but they wouldn't leave the coffee and filters. For this kind of money the tub fixtures should work correctly, was told they just hadn't got to it yet. Best part the, Innkeeper was really friendly.


Great service, great location

4.4 on December 17, 2017

It's evident in the service and the details that this property is treasured by the staff. Lovely art can be found inside the inn and outside in the gardens. The inn is located near the Chattanooga Riverwalk and downtown attractions. I will definitely visit this inn again.


Awesome, Quaint Place to Stay!

outstanding

Overall stay was awesome . Kelley took us to our room explained everything even told us way to aquarium . Next day she seemed disappointed we were leaving . Great hostess and a blessing to Bluffview Inn. Breakfast was at Rembrandts was disappointed was not greeted , unsure were to sit . Went by cash register TWICE was never even looked at , stood in line then left . That was only downside to our stay


Beautiful Victorian style B&B

4.8 on November 29, 2017

We had a wonderful stay in the Carter room. Beautiful view of the TN river and loved the Victorian style furniture and décor. Definitely recommend this B&B :)


Loved Bluff View

5 on November 26, 2017

We go home to Chattanooga quite frequently because my mother is in an assisted living there. A friend recommended Bluff View and I’m so glad she did. Even though I have been to the art district quite some time ago I didn’t remember the beautiful old homes that have been turned into bed and breakfast facilities. We stayed 2 nights and were more than pleased. Everything was exceptional and the beds were extremely comfortable. My only complaint would be going to the coffee shop for breakfast where you have to order for yourself then try to find a table. You only have a limited choice for breakfast unless you pay extra. We didn’t have a chance to eat at the restaurants this time but we understand they are very good. Maybe next time. We will definitely stay at Bluff View again. It definitely beats Hampton Inn !!
