“Nothing too much trouble”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

We stayed for two nights as part of a road trip and would gladly go straight back. Nothing was to much trouble for Lea or any of the staff. From helping with very heavy bags to moving our car for us. The inn is perfectly located with all of the squares and the river within walking distance. Make sure you have tea at 4pm and sherry later on!

This hotel is great. It's very small and intimate (it feels like your staying in someone's house in the 1890's). The staff is very friendly and the rooms have an authentic historic feel. We stayed in the China Trade room on the 2nd floor and it was beautiful with a four-poster bed and large seating area. The only downside to this room is the small TV located across the long room from the bed (it makes viewing TV difficult from bed) but that's only a slight inconvenience. The hotel is very well located in the historic district, just a short walk to restaurants and the River Walk. Breakfast is fun - you select a time and preferred room to sit in, and they seat and serve everyone in their 3 separate rooms on the first floor.

Room Tip: We were told that "Mrs. Anderson's ghost" sometimes walks the 2nd floor hallway"...

And already planning another visit during the holidays. This trip was a mama/daughter holiday filled with lots of art and small boutiques and walks through the wonderful garden squares. The staff is very sincere in helping you feel right at home. I even felt comfortable wearing one of the Ballastone bathrobes down to pick up a mug of morning coffee. Cannot wait to return for more of the same.

We stayed two nights in the beautiful Victoria suite. From the second we arrived to the moment we left we were treated like family. The entire team are gracious hosts and nothing is too much trouble. They really care that everything is perfect and are 100% genuine. Lovely treats for afternoon tea at 4pm and canapés at 6. Nice to catch up with other guests at those social times. Breakfast was good with different chef special each day. The bedding was sublime- it was cotton but so soft I would swear it was silk. We both slept the best we have in a very long time. A little slice of paradise in Savannah. I. Can see why so many stars chose to stay here. Free parking on site was the icing on the cake. Thank you Ms Melissa and team.

They did everything for us. They were so kind and friendly. Our room was amazing. The food was great. Thank you so much for making our Anniversary so special.

Room Tip: Talk with the staff there are so many different sizes and decor of rooms.

We stayed two nights here. There really is nothing I can complain about. They even have a few parking spots behind the place which is a rarity. After you park you are a 10 min walk from most everything, the river, the market, etc. You don't need your car at all.

The inside of Ballastone Is beautiful. Staff was extremely helpful and very friendly.

As a side note: I can see how breakfast would be somewhat limited for those who like some variety and larger plates. It was not an issue for us.

We highly recommend this place.

The staff at the Ballastone made us feel like royalty and like we were their only guest. it was turly the best experience we've ever had. They made all our reservations for us, gave us some discount cards to places we wanted to see and dine. Our room was the China Trade and it was large and just beautiful. Breakfast was always just great. Enjoyed the afternoon tea.
Miss Milissia was wonderful and really enjoyed making you feel specila, wish I could have brought her home with me. We will be returning again.

Room Tip: Loved the China Trade room
