“Bloomsbury Inn is a perfect choice for a visit to Camden, SC.”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

The Inn is absolutely beautiful. The wide wrap around porch offers comfortable seating, lovely views of the gardens and quiet reading spots and conversation areas. The decor is lovely. The Innkeepers have acquired many furnishings from around the country. The rooms are comfortable, the Inn quiet and the breakfast is memorable.

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely. Some are more handsome than others. Or choose for bed size.

Bloomsbury Inn is wonderful! The home is beautiful and beautifully appointed with fine antique furnishings. It is immaculate; the food was absolutely delicious and its presentation was delightful! The owners were most accommodating.

The Bloomsbury Inn was amazing! The proprietors are fascinating and knowledgeable and they leave no detail for your comfort not considered.

The food and home are amazing! We learned so much about life in the south during the Civil War!

We have been very fortunate to stay at some marvellous B&Bs during our fortnight holiday, most of which feature in the Select Registry guide, however the Bloomsbury Inn tops them all. It is a fantastic house in a beautiful location but the reason it is top is due to the hosts Bruce and Katherine. Being reserved I was dubious as to the merits of a social hour but it was most enjoyable . In addition Bruce's tour of the house the following morning was fascinating. His extensive travelling made for some great anecdotes but not at all in an overbearing manner.

We just finished a get-away weekend in Camden for my husband's birthday and stayed at the beautiful Bloomsbury Inn. The Inn was spotless, and the breakfasts were out of this world. Bruce and Katherine made our stay so enjoyable. Five stars is not enough -- they deserve ten! Our stay was far above what I could have hoped for -- and I was hoping for a lot since it was my husband's birthday. We stayed in the General's Chamber -- absolutely exquisite and very relaxing. Bruce and Katherine are a delight and a wealth of information for enjoying historic Camden and the surrounding areas. We look forward to going back again. We had a wonderful time at Bloomsbury. Again . . . 10 stars not 5!

We booked this bed and breakfast based on it's location and trip advisor reviews and were not disappointed. Our room (the generals chamber) was huge and beautiful with the original 1930's bathroom in very good condition. Katherine and Bruce were exceptional hosts and we thoroughly enjoyed our "social hour" sat on the porch drinking wine and nibbles with them and the other guests. We took recommendation for dinner and ended up in a fab Mexican restaurant in town (where there also happened to be a blues festival this weekend). We walked the mile into town and back without difficulty. Breakfast was incredible! Apple dumpling to start followed by ham, eggs, tomato and Benedict's sauce. We left feeling very relaxed and very full! Thank you.

We were lucky enough to stay at the Bloomsbury Inn last week (sadly only planned one night there!). The house is beautiful and Bruce and Katherine are amazing hosts. A huge bonus was the awesome breakfast...the food was delicious and the setting was was wonderful. The conversation was fascinating, room was extremely comfortable, and Miss Kitty Stray was adorable...what more could anyone want?
