Old Edwards Inn is luxury at its best. The bar near the fireplace is great respite to enjoy friends and cocktails. The old wood look of the hotel especially the staircases are amazing. Service at the hotel is as good as it gets. Whether you are visiting the hotel for drinks or dinner or staying there you won't be let... More

We stayed at Old Edwards Inn in Highlands and had a great experience. Our spacious two-room cottage was spectacular, including heated bathroom floors. We used the spa services, the fitness center and dined at Madison's restaurant. This is a first class facility and the staff is professional yet friendly. Our experience at OEI was outstanding. And the Highlands area has... More

I flew into Atlanta and drove to Old Edwards with my girlfriend. We do a girls spa weekend every year. The inn and little town are so charming. We enjoyed our spa services immensely. Service was excellent. They have many employees doing internships from the U.K. and we enjoyed talking to them. Next time I will go when it's warmer... More

I was treated to a birthday trip to the spa. We did not stay at the hotel. It was a wonderful way to spend time with your daughters. We were treated royally to a fantastic girl day. Everything was perfect. I want to go again soon.

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!

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
