This is a difficult review because I wanted to like it so much. I have stayed in many B&B's and know that they vary considerably in what they offer. There are several issues to consider. Some of the staff was very friendly and helpful while others seemed uninterested. Walter was particularly kind and accommodating.The house is very old but that is part of its charm. The public rooms were nicely decorated and the staircase is beautiful. Our room was large and at first glance seemed well appointed. However, the drapes need some work since they didn't all close properly. One of the two chairs had a cushion that was so old and dilapidated that it was like sitting on a board. The antique side table wobbled precariously anytime we tried to use it. The bed was comfortable and the turn down service was a nice touch. Breakfast was okay. The scones and muffins were dry and had little flavor, but the bacon, eggs, and grits were good. Fresh fruit would be a nice addition to the menu. One thing that really bothered me is that when the server removed anyone's plate, he had on the wet rubber gloves used to wash the dishes. The evening wine and appetizers are a nice touch. Nothing fancy, but adequate. The late evening dessert choices were cookies or a pound cake. Not very good but still the effort is nice. I don't necessarily regret staying there, but I won't return on my next trip to Savannah.
