                The staff were very helpful and friendly (especially Kevin the bellman). I enjoyed the breakfast, wine and cheese, and desserts in the evening. The furnishings were lovely. I booked at the Eliza Thompson House because it is a b&b in an historic building. (Note: The 'Garden Courtyard' rooms are not in an historic structure)

                I was very disappointed that our room was in an addition that was built in 1980. If I wanted to stay in a concrete structure, I would've booked a visit at a newer hotel. There is a section of the website that explains this distinction, but not within the individual room descriptions. When we arrived, our room had no towels and only 1 roll of toilet paper - this could've been stocked ahead of our arrival.

                Excellent location and very charming place, with a lovely living room and garden patio.

                The buffet breakfast was nothing special, with a kind of "supermarket food". It didn't match the expectation of having something special, in line with the decor and the charm of the place.

              • Older travelers

                The location was perfect, close enough to everything we wanted to do so that we did not have to move the car the entire stay, but far enough away to be surrounded by quiet. Eliza Thompson is large enough to have all the comforts of home, but small enough to be cozy. After settling in and requesting guidance from the desk Erin made our dinner reservations and booked our tour for the next day. Both dinner and tour could not have been better. When we return to Savannah we plan to also return to the Eliza Thompson House.

                The street parking can be a little bit tricky.

              • Group of friends
                9.6

                The traditional design of the house, quiet elegance, friendly efficient staff. The location is good - close to the river district and shopping.

                Our room was rather small.

              • Older travelers
                8.2

                You can not beat the location! The wine reception was a nice touch.

                The stairs could be cumbersome to seniors...

              • Older travelers

                Beautiful B and B on a beautiful street, well located for exploring the city.

              • Couple
                10.0

                The staff was extremely friendly and the hotel was just as adorable as it promised to be. Relaxing courtyard with fountain, big comfy bed in a cute room, wine and cheese in the drawing room, all the amenities we needed, and on a charming shady street... We loved it!

              • Single
                9.6

                The staff was fantastic and genuinely helpful. Everything is in walking distance and I encourage exploration. Such a beautiful part of America and rich in history. The Eliza Thompson house adds to the experience. Wish I could have one more day.

              • Older travelers
                9.6

                The previous question I don't understand? Chose the place because it was in the Savannah Historical District! Was on a trip from Sarasota Fl. to Charlotte NC to visit family! You may want to add a box for , "Location"?! The facility was great, everything was fine and comfortable. The only negative comment I could offer is that I would suggest that the front desk personnel be trained or instructed to be more "people friendly" to guests as they arrive. A friendly attitude and smile or two would be nice upon arrival rather than a "all business demeanor". I'll let it go at that! The young man "Brandon" I think, who showed us to our room and around the Inn, was very friendly,informative and helpful upon our arrival, and he was or appeared to be sincere in being of assistance. He should be recognized for being as asset to the Inn! We would stay again if we find ourselves back in the area!

                All great.

                Awesome courtyard; late-night coffee/desserts, wine/cheese, general location, friendly staff.

                Inconvenient parking; requirement of parking only on one side of the street on Fri/Sat...just for streetcleaners....Hotel Mgt needs to negotiate something different wiith the city; room was too small.

              • Older travelers
                9.6

                Cozy and comfortable with gracious welcome and generous amenities (wine & cheese before dinner, desserts afterward).
