It has been a while since we stayed at Old Edwards Inn and Spa, but I wanted to post a review as it was the best customer service I have ver experienced. We stayed in the summer (late August) as part of a journey through the Carolina's to CHarleston and a Carriben cruise. Arriving at Old Edwarsd Inn and being... More

Four neighbors from Charleston, SC thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at Old Edwards! The spa is incredible, the food is amazing, the ambiance sets the mood for a good time and the staff is very attentive. The hotel and grounds are absolutely gorgeous. This is probably going to be an annual girl's getaway!

My wife and I recently stayed 2 nights for our 10-year anniversary. I have travelled to many destinations, experienced many hotel styles and a variety of star levels in many countries, however The Old Edwards Inn and Spa was by far the most relaxing. The reviews do this property justice, that's for sure. The amazing experience started with the customer... More

we had a wonderful anniversary weekend. The staff was very attentive and made us very comfortable. Room was gorgeous. The spa was great! We celebrated our anniversary and they made sure to acknowledge that all weekend. The town is adorable. We loved it! It might be even lovelier in the summer time. I don't like that you are making me... More

I must say, they know how to do things right. We stayed in the Cascade Cottage at the back of the property. Beautifully decorated, fireplace in room, heated floors in the bathroom, crown molding, mini bar, with Kuerig Coffee maker, etc. Upon arrival, they showed us the property...old, quaint, furnished beautifully, baby grand piano in the library, spa...WOW, rooftop terrace....

Stayed here 3 days for a business meeting and really enjoyed it. This place must be a dream in the summer. Interiors beautifully decorated, staff welcoming, humble, polite and helpful everywhere on site. Food in Madisons restaurant is worth writing home about, this accompanied by a great selection of international wines made dining here a first class experience. The hummingbird... More

Visited on a very chilly January weekend. Dined at Madison's, couples massage at the spa, nice Lodge suite, cocktails and music at two different bars. More to do in warmer weather, but plenty to do even in freezing weather. The suite was great - our first stay here, so I cannot compare it to their other offerings. Wi Fi did... More

I was browsing TripAdvisor and stumbled upon this "Best of 2015" hotel. It truly is a marvel with top notch facilities, service and quality. My wife and I rode the Harley down from Kentucky in 106 degree heat. The hotel was refreshing from the first sight, through the check-in process. The lunch in the open air restaurant was casual but... More

A tad pricey, but worth it! I stay in a lot of hotels nationwide for work, ranging from mediocre to high end. This is the most eleqeunt for sure. Stayed in the original hotel (built in 1800s), and glad I did. Not very private though...old hotel is romantic for sure, but thin walls. Hummingbird Lounge and The Library were excellent... More

On travelling up to the hotel from Atlanta we discovered this interesting new environment and a great feel of country. The hotel is centrally located in the Main Street, which is packed full of quality shops, and we were welcomed warmly and with a glass of champagne and escorted to our room. Our suite room was near there wonderful spa... More
