The Governor's House Inn.....priceless !

Posted Feb 23, 2015
Pros: Location....beautiful rooms....delicious breakfast and teas. Superb staff that were helpful and informative.
Cons: We were in Room 7 and we could not get the room comfortable to sleep. We had to open the windows.
Location: Perfect location!!!!
We loved our weekend at the Governor's House Inn. The rooms are beautiful and well appointed and the breakfasts served are delicious and served with kind, informative, and helpful staff. Everyone that stayed there was so congenial at tea time and breakfast. Sherry is available after you return from your dinner and I would and will highly recommend everyone staying here when they travel to Charleston!! Paul and his staff are A+.

Southern hospitality in a beautiful setting!

Posted Feb 22, 2015
Pros: The Governors Inn is beautifully furnished. The food was all homemade and very wonderfully prepared. The host staff was warm and attentive.
Cons: I cannot think of one thing. All top notch!
Location: We enjoyed the walking tour and walking throughout the city ourselves. Our walking tour guide was wonderful, a recommendation from the hotel staff.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Governor's House Inn. We were met with wonderful southern hospitality from the moment that we arrived. Our room was lovely with time period furnishings and a balcony where if the weather were warmer we would have enjoyed sitting with a cup of coffee. We always appreciate a nice shower and top quality towels of which we had! The afternoon tea was spectacular with a caramel pound cake, tasty sweets and hors d'ouevres along with wine-a nice way to relax and enjoy the lovely dining room and meet other guests. Our breakfast was the best with a frittata-all of the food homemade and carefully prepared. Thank you for the recipes Governor Inn! We also appreciate the ideas and helpful suggestions of the hospitality team. It is obvious that those who work here love the place and what they are doing. This was a wonderful experience for a couple who are from the state of Washington. We had a 5 star experience!!

Wonderful night...

My husband & I stayed at the Governor's House Inn to celebrate our anniversary. This B&B is lovely and the staff are extremely friendly & courteous. The location is perfect for walking to local shops/restaurants. Breakfast was very tasty & homemade with fresh fruit. Would highly recommend for anyone wanting a little southern charm on their vacation.

An amazing experience; didn't want to leave!

Posted Jan 12, 2015
Pros: The room was very comfortable, well furnished, and private. The hotel was located within walking distance of everything in downtown Charleston.
Checking in, we met with Brian who couldn't wait to give us a tour of the house and share some amazing stories and information of the house and Charleston as a whole. Every morning we would venture to the dining room for a delicious home-made breakfast. Every afternoon was tea, and every evening was a glass of Sherry in the study. If we needed anything, the staff was steps away and more than willing to accommodate us.

Fantastic Stay

Posted Jan 3, 2015
My husband and I had a terrific stay at the Governor's House. We loved the location- walking distance to all the sights of historic Charleston, but not at the crowded, busy part. The inn was beautiful and maintained perfectly. The staff was all friendly and very accommodating. Breakfasts were superb- eggs Benedict one morning and Bananas Foster French toast the next day along with wine, tea and goodies in the afternoon. Can't wait to go back!!
