The house has it all - what a wow factor. The bedrooms are great (we stayed in an antebellum room in the main house) but I would say the bathrooms need updating. Didn't expect a shower curtain, for instance. It is truly special to wake up in such historic surroundings, though. The first night, we went for great mint juleps in the bar (don't miss them!) and my husband looked round the door of the adjoining room only to be hustled out as it was booked for a group. Not very welcoming! We had decided to eat in the 1818 restaurant, and while we were finishing our drinks on the terrace, we saw the staff setting up two big tables of 10 for dinner. It transpired that one group hadn't booked to eat but were being accommodated anyway, which meant that it took an hour and a half to get to our main course, which was salty and cold. The three groups of us in the restaurant complained to our lovely waitress (who did an amazing job) and she had to go and ring her manager to see what she could do for us. We were then told that we only had to pay for our drinks. On checkout, this information hadn't been given to the girl at the desk, so we had to explain what had happened again so we weren't charged. I have to say that all the staff were very helpful and apologetic, but the evening was utterly shambolic. We had to tell the French family that ate at the same time (only 2 steaks and a salad - 1.5 hours waiting!) that we hadn't paid. They had only been offered free pudding. It's a great shame, as I understand that the food can be brilliant. Go for the house and gardens, definitely.
