“Great Place, Brilliant Staff”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

The charm of this b&b is nothing compared with the warmth and attitude of the staff who work here. From the delicious breakfasts served, to the free wine in the afternoon - the ladies who serve and prepare everything make you feel incredibly welcome. They went out of their way to make sure we had a good stay. They arranged a walking tour, booked restaurants and taxis and were just generally helpful. Couldn't commend them enough. The Cannonboro Inn felt less like a b&b and more like an extension of home.

We stayed in a suite on the top floor, with a sitting room, kitchen and two beds and TVs. Innkeeper and staff were nice, breakfast was okay (not to the level of most good B and B's), wine and snacks were good in the afternoon. A healthy walk to many attractions. Could use new mattresses and a more ambitious breakfast, better cooking.

It is unfortunate the mornings you had breakfast with us that you weren't satisfied. We really take pride in our menu choices and cooking skills. Had you brought it to our attention during your stay we could have made you something more to your liking.
Our mattresses are replaced on a timely basis. I have taken your opinion of the bed and I am sorry the firmness wasn't to what you might be used to.
Thank you for the review and hope to have you return.
Safe Travels!

Great find for us and we will be back. We had a great time. Clean place and the people were very nice. We travel a lot to Charleston and it's right close to Upper King District which is really cool area. Great deal as well. Close to all the great restaurants here as well, The Ordinary, The Grocery and Two Boroughs Larder.

We just spent 4 nights at the Cannonboro Inn and once again we had another wonderful visit. As always, we had a delicious gourmet breakfast each morning and such comfortable sleeping accommodations. The staff are so helpful, personable and greet you with your name and a smile. This was our fourth visit to Charleston and each time we stay at the Cannonboro. It is so convenient to historic Charleston and to MUCS. We highly recommend this quaint bed and breakfast with so much personality and charm!!

We spent three nights at this quaint, historic B&B, and enjoyed the experience. Being an owner of a French B&B, I understand the challenges and the differences that went into our stay. I understand the Charleston market. With that said, our accommodations, meals, service, and shared time at Cannonboro could not have been any more pleasant anywhere else in Old Charleston. Lynn made sure things went smoothly and the rest of the staff [I apologize for not catching names] were helpful and efficient ... with one young woman greeting me in my native language ! Merci. We met owner Barry Carroll on our last morning; a charming addition to the stories being told around the table. Our stay at the Cannonboro Inn served our every need while enjoying the town.

We just spent two nights at the Cannonborough Inn last week. The house is absolutely beautiful & the owner greeted us both mornings at breakfast. Lynn was so friendly & just a wealth of information! Had afternoon wine & tea, along with cheese, crackers, etc. Beds were very, very comfortable! Breakfast on the piazza was so nice! If you stay here, you MUST eat at the "Hominy Grill" which is just a short walk from the inn. Everything there is homemade. We would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 3 on the second floor, which is quieter.

We spent three nights here, and had a lovely time. The room was spotless and the towels were very good quality!! Lynn's breakfast were very gourmet, and the afternoon wine and snacks was an added bonus. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to our friends.
