Perfect for a romantic getawayPosted Aug 14, 2012
Would go again any time! Recommended for adults and older children. Very elegant and lots of stairs not good for small ones or the elderly. Food was wonderful. Staff very helpful.

Beautifull place! But we made a reservation for a particular room and this room was not available when we arrived. They moved us from the second floor to the third floor. The room was pretty but noisy because of all conditionnairs on the top of the house along our windows. We had no access to the porch on the second floor as it was with the room we choose. Disapointment. But they offered us a compensation, a bottle of champagne or a carriage tour,

Great stay, wonderful staffPosted May 2, 2012 on Hotels.com
The Governor's House was a lovely B&B for a mother-daughter get away to Charleston. We didn't even need to rent a car as it was walking distance to most downtown sights. The staff was very helpful in arranging tours/transportation for some of the further out plantations as well as restaurant reservations. I would hghly recommend it!

A very special place to stayPosted Apr 18, 2012
Pros: The friendly staff who made our stay very special and all the home cooked food served at breakfast and afternoon tea.
Cons: There weren't any.
Location: The location couldn't be better for either shopping, sight seeing or just exploring all the beautiful streets nearby.
This hotel is within walking distances of all the places of interest and good restaraunts and even the main shopping area. The house itself is beautiful and the very friendly staff cater to your every request and make you feel very welcome. We were able to meet some very nice people at breakfast, served in the beautiful dining room, and the delicious afternoon teas on the verandah. We went on the water taxi to The Yorktown at Patriots Point which was very interesting. The harbour tour is also very good.

The historic building is beautiful and there are lots of places to sit and enjoy the building itself. Afternoon tea was a very nice time to enjoy a glass of wine and visit with other guests. Room itself was quite small but nicely decorated. I enjoy a king size bed, which this was not. Queen size bed was comfortable however. |Location was perfect. Walking distance to anywhere we wanted to go and free trolley for the historic district came almost to our front door.

Downtown CharlestonPosted Jan 14, 2012 on Hotels.com
If you want to be within walking distance of anything downtown, this is the place to be! Great location! The staff were very pleasant and 4pm tea was great. Breakfast was pretty good as well. Love the period feel of most of the property. Well kept and comfortable. We stayed in the Independence Room; stayed warm (individual thermostat for the rooms) and comfortable bed. You should try out Bull Street Market as well. Excellect Duck Club!

Loved our stay at the Governors House Inn!Posted Nov 30, 2011
The Governors House Inn is historic and beautiful. We were in the Laurens room. The porch areas were wonderful (it helps that we were there in the fall with perfect weather and temperatures). The staff were friendly and helpful, and the location was great. We parked the car at the inn and didn't get in it again until we left to head home. I wish we had taken advantage of afternoon tea time at the inn, but we were having so much fun about town that we missed it. Breakfast was very nice both mornings we were there.

Governor's House B&B---Luxury, Service & HistoryPosted Aug 16, 2011 on Hotels.com
This B&B is the fully restored and internally modernized home of Edward Rutledge, signer of Declaration of Independence and Governor of South Carolina. The staff was very friendly, helpful with local directions and bookings and there were excellent amenities (Wine, home-made snacks, etc) available in afternoon and evening. Breakfasts were superb and unusual, but wilth alternatives for the less adventurous. We have already recommended this B&B to friends who enjoy this type of accommodation.
