We have family stay here regularly. They always look forward to their trip! Especially the pancakes and homemade breakfast! The grounds are so relaxing. It was nice to see the outside courtyard where we had breakfast that morning. The housekeeping staff was so friendly! Everything smelled so good when we walked in. We will be back again at the end...

I don't want to bash the property but it just was not up to par with other B&B's. I will say it still beats staying in a hotel but just was below average for what we expected: Pro's Nice breakfast great location to the downtown area Potentially a beautiful property Not so Pro: There are no phones in the rooms...

rothschildpoundhouse, Owner at Rothschild - Pound House Inn, responded to this review

Mark, I am so sorry that we did not meet your expectations. It is always disappointing to hear of an unhappy guest. Our property is almost 150 years old. Sometimes an historic property won't have that same "brand new feel" to it, as say a Holiday Inn would. That being said, a chain hotel would not be listed on the... More

Wow! if you have never stayed in a home that was built in the 1800's you should. A lot of history here indeed. We stayed up stairs in the big suite. It has a separate sitting room, fire place, and upstairs porch that are quaint. Many movie stars have been here too which have left really great photos.

I've been to Columbus several times. I've stayed at the Pound House four times and the Marriott several times. There is no comparison! The Pound House is a beautiful home with a fascinating history. Be sure to look at the pictures of the house being moved to its current location. The rooms are great - their website provides great descriptions... More

My wife and I returned to this lovely B&B just last week, after a two year absence. If you have any plans to be in this part of the world (we visit our daughter at Fort Benning) you would be best served staying here. Clean, attractive, convenient, service top notch. The list goes on. Heck, without knowing it, Mamie created... More

Tastefully decorated (but not overdone or museum-like); warm,knowledgable and friendly hosts. The bed was extremely comfortable. The breakfasts tasted great, with good presentation. The inn has a good location in that it is fairly close to restaurants, but not so close that you get any of the noise. The historic district is fairly large with many nice homes. A great... More

Our son and his girlfriend wanted to make a repeat visit to Columbus, Ga - having passed through and finding it a very amenable city. They invited us to accompany them. I thought, "Oh, no. ANOTHER day trip to Columbus". (I was there, often, on business from Atlanta). I said - find a "Pet Friendly" place to stay, and we'll... More

My husband and I and some others just returned home from a delightful couple of days in Columbus, GA. We went there for pleasure, after our son recommended it following a recent trip. I thought all Columbus had to offer was an Army base, but I was wrong. The first delight was the Riverwalk, but I'll review that in another... More

We had a lovely time here. The room was very elegant and large and the breakfast was delicious. It was really cool to hear about how these houses were saved and restored. We especially loved all the art work which was done by one of the owners. A very memorable place to stay and I highly recommend the Rothschild Pound... More

I have stayed at the Rothschild-Pound House Inn several times. The atmosphere is perfect. It is a very relaxing hidden jewel in Historic District Columbus, Ga.
