A spacious, genteel cool comfortable oasis after running around Memphis. The owners are equally cool, helpful, friendly, charming. Great local artwork adorns their walls and halls, quiet atmosphere, so close to attractions only needed to get out the car once from the parking lost half a block away. Felt safe and pampered and would come back in a heartbeat.

Talbot Heirs is warm, personal, friendly, charming, authentic. We chose room #7 because a single room, combination bedroom sitting room, suits us. We loved the colors and character and comfort. Paintings by local artists line the halls. The hosts, Tom and Sandy, were great, helpful, personable. The location is ideal. We used the kitchen in #7 to prepare our breakfasts....

We spent 2 nights in Memphis on our road trip through the South - and stayed here over a busy weekend. Talbot Heirs is superbly located, in the heart of downtown, walking distance to Beale Street and other attractions, yet still fairly quiet. The accommodation was very spacious, comfortable and coolly decorated. Jerry and his wife are incredibly welcoming, friendly...

We stopped at Memphis on the way from Chicago to NOLA on the train. We were there to visit Beale Street and Graceland/Sun Studio. Talbot Heirs was the perfect base--Graceland, Rock & Soul Museum, Gibson Guitar Factory, Beale Street, Sun Studio. Except for Graceland and Sun Studio, everything was within an easy walk of Talbot Heirs and a free bus...

This is a wonderful unique place to stay. The guest rooms are funky, the art in the hallway very interesting and fun, and the help we got from Jerry planning where to go and how to get there was perfect.

This is a hidden jewel. Sandy and Tom are great hosts. They make you feel like family. Enjoyed the kitchen stocking of basic breakfast goodies. Very clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay here again. Loved it!

Talbot Heirs is a wonderful place to stay in Memphis. The hosts, Tom and Sandy, made us feel very welcome. Great advice on what to do (including the free ride to Graceland from the Sun Studios bus) and where to eat. It is not your typical guesthouse. The rooms are more like efficiency apartments than rooms. They are spacious and...
