Loved every minute of our stay at the Ballastone Inn and in Savannah. The Ballastone mansion is sooooooo wonderfully close to absolutely everything and oozes southern hospitality in every possible way ... stunning architecture, quaint gardens, lush decor, delish cuisine, uber comfort, cheery and helpful staff, etc. etc. The Ballastone Inn misses no detail. Lovely.

Beautiful rooms, unique, clean and quiet. Fantastic location right in the heart of old Savannah. The staff are wonderful and friendly without being overwhelming. Very private and discreet. If you like truly old world charm and a place that feels like you dropped into the best of the 1800's this is the place for you. Do not stay here if you want pools, instant service and constant attention along with in-room movies and video games.
Limited parking but the parking passes for the street are cheap and we had no trouble finding a spot.
I would recommend the Inn to anyone.

Location was a easy walking distance to everything.The staff was very friendly. The food was incredible. The linen on the beds were crazy soft. I could go on but i will stop. My wife and I felt privileged to be guests at such a great inn.

Great location, fabulously appointed rooms, and wonderful personal service from the staff. I felt like I was treated as royalty! After staying in Scarlett's Retreat, I now understand why her state of mind was so "fiddle-dee-dee!" I love the afternoon tea, breakfasts and cocktail treats. I also stayed in the Victoria Suite, which was even grander. I will be back!

Room Tip: 3rd or 4th floor rooms are quieter

My husband and I were so pleased with our decision to stay at the Ballastone!!! We can't say enough good things about this bed and breakfast! From the moment we arrived the staff couldn't be any more welcoming! The service was incredible and the smiling faces from the staff that greeted us everyday was so wonderful!!! The food was absolutely AMAZING!!! The breakfasts we were served every morning were the best we've ever had!!! The room we stayed in was beautiful but while we were there the staff encouraged us to take a look in the other rooms at the inn. So needless to say I have my eye on The Victoria for our next visit! My husband and I want to extend many thanks to the lovely staff for making our stay a most memorable one!!!
Until next time.....

With many thanks,
Chris and Melissa Lorden
