Christmas getaway

Jan 7th, 2020

We have stayed at the Southern Mansion many times, and have never been disappointed! Wonderful, roomy, beautifully designed rooms, all with antique furnishings. The best bed and breakfast in Cape May, we will definitely return!! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Christmas Get Away

Dec 22nd, 2019

We recently spend a wonderful weekend at the Southern Mansion and enjoyed it very much . Inn was nicely decorated for Christmas and the staff was very helpful and friendly . Room was nice and spacious even through the bathroom was as small as a closet with the sink out in the bedroom ( room #9 ) .Quite often in older Inns that is the case but for one weekend it is fine . We enjoyed the breakfast very much , a nice buffet and a hot made to order main dish that was very satisfying . The lack of a pantry was a little disappointing . We have stayed in B & B 's where you can come in late at night and grab a snack , coffee or tea and or a soft drink , we missed that here but enjoyed the Southern Mansion just the same .

Lovely Thanksgiving Weekend

Dec 1st, 2019

My wife and I stayed at the Southern Mansion over Thanksgiving weekend and really enjoyed it. The Southern Mansion is an authentic historical mansion with additional rooms added on. All the rooms are decorated beautifully and there were Christmas trees on each floor and in the ball room. The public areas are beautiful and homey. We stayed in Room 6 on the second floor and it was very nicely furnished, comfortable and clean. Having the sink in the room and not the bathroom was...interesting. The shower was large but could use an updated shower head. Warning: there are nude paintings throughout the building which again is...interesting. The staff was warm and helpful, especially Jessica, who is very sweet and is always asking about guests' experiences in Cape May so she can pass along the information to other guests. Also, breakfast is plentiful and delicious and the wait staff is helpful and friendly. We had a great time and I would recommend the Southern Mansion for couples without hesitation.

Overall Excellent with just a few flaws

Nov 24th, 2019

We lodged at the Southern Mansion off season and it met expectations. Our room was well decorated in Victorian Period furniture and had an excellent comfortable king sized bed. The building and rooms are very clean, the staff was all very courteous and helpful and there was ample parking in the lot outside.The hot breakfast served at our table the next morning was very good. All in all this is one of the better if not the best Cape May BnB. The minus issues were small but annoying. The window in our room rattled and we needed to place a cardboard shim to silence it The shower had a tiny shower head that didn't make the shower the most comfortable, a far cry from the rain shower head at home or at some of the better hotels we stayed at. The television exhibited a rather snowy picture and the choice of cable channels was very basic. All the staff while extremely courteous and helpful do not dress very well. We don't see this at other top end lodging places. We would also not recommend this BnB for families with children under age 10. . All and all, the pluses far exceeded the minuses and we had am excellent stay. We would recommend staying here and hope that management takes our comments in a positive way TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
