Loved the beautiful rooms of this B&B - we stayed in the room 3-1 - and it was just gorgeous. Check out the website - the pictures don´t lie at all, it is just that romantic. A little worn of course, but it just adds a lot of charming character. There are more fancy placed around town, but nothing that compares pricewise. And you truly get the Charleston-experience when sitting in the rocking chairs at the porch with a cup of coffee in the morning, just enjoying summer in December!
The location is great - you can walk to everywhere in town. But then again, as long as you stay in the downtown area, you are pretty much able to walk most places. But its location fours blocks from the main roads of King and Meeting is great, and we walked everywhere.
The staff are great - helpful and friendly, and really making you feel at home. Two things preventing a better score overall; The wifi did not work in our room - it just would not connect to any device (and we have several). And the breakfast - while served with great stories and friendly smiles - could have been simpler for our taste. Don´t really need the rather interesting pinapple and cheese tart in the morning, but could have done with just some toasts/freshly baked bread, jams and fruits. Great with coffee to take out on the porch however.
