We picked this B & B because of the video that talked about the owners liking to mingle with the guests. Our first evening the owner gave us each a glass of wine and a dish of peanuts. We talked to ourselves. We did not meet his wife. Because we were the only guests (which we discovered on arrival), we...

We really enjoyed our 2 night stay at the Devereaux Shields B&B. I found the place from Tripadvisor and highly recommend this place. We stayed in the Rose Suite and we were the only guests in the house for our 2 nights. The Rose Suite includes two bedrooms and a bathroom between the two rooms. We kept our clothes &...

Wonderful, quiet and delicious stay! We really enjoyed the staff and the authentic furnishings. Will definetly stay here again on a return trip. Aunt Clara's Cottage is a great addition to the Devereaux B&B.

We enjoyed our stay here. We have stayed in many B and B's over the years...so comparisons are easy. It is a lovely house with a nice location. Breakfast is just average. The complimentary wine greeting did not happen because of licensing issues. Nothing was substituted.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Devereaux Shields House. The B&B is located on a beautiful block. Ron and Eleanor are terrific hosts and have thought of just about everything. Early morning coffee service is available followed by a delicious breakfast. The property is dog-friendly as well.

Excellent quiet convenient location. Beautifully and comfortably furnished in a period (NOT old fashioned!) style. We had two large well lit bedrooms which was ideal for us as I am restless and 'the boss' snores! We could not have been made more welcome by the owner and his staff. We were in the main house and it is 150 yards...

My wife and I stayed here for her 40th birthday. The house and room were amazing. The house was built in the 1870's (I believe) and while it still had the charm of an antique house, it also had updated amenities. We had wireless internet, TV, and a Jacuzzi style tub complete with mood lighting. The staff was always friendly...

Very friendly staff and clean room and nice bed. We stayed away from the main house a few doors down in another home they have redone and where they serve breakfast for both houses. This was fine but the back door was locked leaving only one exit and worried me in case of fire. The breakfast was not bad but...

I'm sure there are many great B&B's in Natchez, Mississippi and we stayed in one we highly recommend. It is ideally located in a beautiful area of Natchez. It was built in the 1890's with a lot of historic ambiance. There was much effort put into making this a lovely restored home. The rooms are beautifully decorated with comfortable beds....

Very frustrating experience with the owners/management. We called over a month in advance and had a very long detailed conversation with the employee about our needs for accommodations re: our 3 children (ages 13, 11 and 8). We booked a suite of rooms so that our family could stay together/paid the deposit/received confirmation/etc. Upon our arrival, the owner acted totally...

VictorianComfort, Owner at Devereaux Shields House, responded to this review

Dear Jennifer, Clearly we are disappointed that your stay was disturbed by the miscommunication over whether you had accompanying children. We take our reviews to heart and Ron’s initial reaction can be characterized as “totally taken off-guard, shocked and hurt” by your husband’s aggressive confrontation at checkout. Especially over what we thought to be a minor miscommunication and after we...
