We were greeted warmly and the property exceeded our expectations in every way.
The service was really outstanding, nothing was too much trouble.
We enjoyed a wine & cheese reception before being shown around and then escorted to our very well appointed and comfortable lodgings. Everything was clean and fresh, the subtle elegance of the historic Inn shone through.
We read rave reviews about this property in Australian Gourmet Traveller magazine, with emphasis on the stunning roof top bar, so we were eager to try it out.
To our surprise, the ambience didn't reflect that of the Inn downstairs.
It was somewhat ragged at the edges, with really irritating electro dance music blaring in the background. At 4pm in the afternoon, this was a little hard to take.
We made mention of this on the guest feedback survey, and received a very prompt reply, assuring us Inn Management had reviewed and was planning more appropriate music to suit different times of the day.
We received some excellent recommendations for dinner from the staff at the Inn, and chose to dine at High Cotton restaurant, just steps away on East Bay St. Sensational experience - WOW!
We also enjoyed a meal at the Roof Top Bar, and breakfasted at the Inn, both of which we thoroughly enjoyed.
The location was perfect, and we can't wait to return to the charming and delightful Vendue Inn to see more of wonderful Charleston.
