The positive elsewhere date from several years ago. Sadly now (late 2012) this B&B seems to be occupied only sporadically and has an absentee owner. Much of the structure is semi-derelict and the photographs are misleading.

On our stay, we and our friends were the only guests and we had a terrible time. The toilet waste pipework was apparently blocked when we arrived. Our friends were told that their bathroom must not be used. In fact it was the macerator pump in our room that ran, very noisily, through the night, making proper sleep impossible.

In the morning (5.30am) we were told that there had been a leak during the night and that now there was no water anywhere in the house. We were given some bottles of mineral water each so that we could clean our teeth, but we were not able to wash or use the lavatory! We left at 6.00am in search of a gas station.

We made an immediate written request for a refund. The owner was very slow to respond, and then completely unsympathetic. She has now prevaricated for three weeks. Resolution was promised by a week ago but we have heard nothing and she fails to respond to our follow-up emails. We give up!

I just stopped by this house last week (October 2015). There was no sign of life to be seen. Peeking through the front door windows, I saw that it was dark inside. The porch ceiling was falling, so I'm not sure the house is a very safe place. I read that this is the largest house in Port Gibson, but I would be surprised if that is accurate. It's an interesting house to look at from the outside, but I'm not sure it's a place that is safe to enter into.
