We spent 4 nights in Cypress House in one of the rooms with a private porch overlooking the street. The room was large and stylish with a huge and comfortable bed and a clean and modern bathroom. The private front porch was delightful and the pool area also very pleasant. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and we found it a particularly nice touch that they laid on free cocktails and nibbles by the pool at 4.30pm each day which was a nice way of getting to know the other guests.
The house is right in the heart of the beautiful historic district and is within a few minutes walk of Duval Street and Mallory Square which is where the majority of the restaurants and bars are located and is also not far from the harbour. Although this was very convenient the street could be a little noisy at night sometimes. The only other downside was that the breakfast provided was adequate consisting of toast, cereal, local pastries and bagels with one ready prepared hot dish each day, for example burritos or omelettes. We thought that, for the price, there should have been more hot food available or a better selection of pastries and ready prepared fruit.
All in all we would have no hesitation in recommending Cypress Inn.By: Karen Hay November 10, 2014
