The reviews on Tripadvisor gave us high hopes for Talbot Heirs and our experience, if anything, exceeded expectations. We’d arrived rather early having travelled on the night train from Chicago but Tom was at the door ready to welcome us and haul our suitcase up the stairs. While we sat in his office, chatting, Sandy joined us and made tea....

Talbot Heirs Guesthouse is a gem find. Great location in close proximity to Beal Street and major downtown Memphis attractions. Managers Sandy and Tom are the most welcoming and friendliest of people. They are very hands on and attentive to ensure their guests are comfortable with the accommodation and with getting around the downtown area. The Guesthouse is definitely nothing...

Yes it's all true ! We can only endorse all the great reports you'll see elsewhere! Location is spot on - so close to Beale Street & lots of restaurants (Flying Fish - just downstairs is well worth a visit). Rooms are excellent - everything you could need (cooker/microwave/fridge/tv/cd player etc) - complimentary tea & coffee /cereals/milk/juice/biscotti - comfy beds/lovely...

We were looking for something not of the chain variety and we came up with this gem! Tom and Sandy were great hosts. Tom met us at the curb and helped get our bags inside. Check in was a breeze. We just had to move the car to the off site, but very close, parking garage. Our room was perfect....

There's a reason why Talbot Heirs has so many glowing reviews - it deserves them. The rooms are all like mini apartments with a well-stocked kitchenette, bathroom and living area. Little extras like a bottle of beer in the fridge, snack bars and tea and coffee made it even more special. The location couldn't be more perfect. Slap bang in...

I'd seen the door before, and seen the name, though never stayed here. My husband and I decided that Memphis would be nice for our anniversary. Talbot Heirs Guesthouse is perfectly located - across from the Peabody, a block from Huey's - right in the middle of everything. All of the rooms are upstairs - ours looked out on the...

My husband and I just returned from a short visit to Memphis where we combined some tourist activities and family visits. A friend of ours who is a retired employee for Fed Ex advised us to stay at Talbot Heirs, a guest house located central to Memphis and its attractions. At his advice, we selected one of their eight guest...

When we arrived after a five our car trip, we certainly didn't expect to feel relaxed and happy checking in. Tom and Sandy are B&B pros; warm, helpful, charismatic people who quickly feel like old friends. This is the only guesthouse we've stayed in, usually preferring the privacy of a hotel or airbnb, but we were lured in by the...

I just took a job in Memphis and, arriving 5 days ago, needed a place to stay until my apartment was ready. I consulted Yelp in advance and, on the strength of the reviews, booked my stay at Talbot Heirs. So glad that I did!!! The great Yelp reviews are spot on. The hospitality of Tom and Sandy is second-to-none....

Stayed two nights on our southern road trip. A unique B and B right downtown. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms are more like suites. A little old school but really comfortable and clean. Walking distance to Beale Street and the Civil Rights Museum. Also walking distance to Sun Records and their shuttle to Graceland. Jerry is a wonderful...
