Dansereau House is an Amazing place to stay if your ever in Thibodaux,Louisiana. The rooms are beautiful each room has its on history. The house has great energy and the staff is AWESOME!!!!. When i want to get away and get a peace of mind this is my spot.
Unkempt mansion with some nice touches such as huge rooms with chandeliers, comfortable beds..
However cleanliness is an issue especially in the bathroom. The shower stall has a rag instead of a curtain. It’s so slippery that it’s dangerous. There are no cups or glasses in the room. The light by the bed didn’t have plug to plug it into.
The supposed breakfast consisted of biscuits and gravy from the refrigerator and a pumpkin bread. No juice. When we arrived we were shown a cooler where they had soda and water and the coffee machine and told to help ourselves. Alas, when we wanted coffee later, there was no coffee to be found. The person who worked there was pleasant but told us that if we need anything to call him as he’s not around most of the time. There is a huge. Long staircase to the upper floors. There is a tiny antique elevator that you could take but it’s like taking your life into your hands.
We always use Trip Advisor but do you EVER-check out the the establishments you recommend. After this experience, I’m beginning to doubt it. YOU NEED TO LOWER YOUR STARS FROM 4 TO 2 or even 1 for this B&B. I’ll write the same review to Hotels.com who we used for booking,
Great historical house great welcome and the only one which offers oeuf à la coque for the breakfast in Louisiana the bedroom in the 3rd flood is magic with à huge bathroom also à car park de vas à leasanr stay
Arrived mid-afternoon, Parking places (about 6 or 7) are round the back on W 5th St. Enter through the back door. Reception was unmanned at that point, but our key was waiting for us, with a welcome letter. Room was absolutely charming, really loved it. No tea or coffee facilities in the room, but a flask of coffee and a coffee maker (with coffee and a wide range of teas) in the dining room for use. A lovely big balcony goes all round the house, accessed from the upstairs landing (think one of the bedrooms also has direct access onto it). We sat up there in the late afternoon sun with our coffee - delightful! Plenty of places to eat within walking distance. Only downside was that we were on a tight schedule next morning, and breakfast wasn't served until 9, so we had to go without. Note nobody comes into your room unless you put the sign on the door asking for fresh towels.
My wife and I stayed for two days in the Evangeline Room. Accommodations were very comfortable. The house is beautiful and it is worth the time to stroll through and look for some details that might otherwise go unnoticed. Breakfast was very good! On our second day we met a young couple from France and enjoyed speaking with them at breakfast. Linda was very pleasant, knowledgeable about the area, and attentive to our needs. The second floor wrap-around porch was a unique feature and a nice place to watch the sun rise!
