An island of gracious tranquility in a city that has little. The perfect spot to get away from it all and remember what life can be. It's a grand European escape without the airline nonsense. No hassle, no long flights. Just elegance and peaceful surroundings.

It is boggling to realize that Graylyn initially was a family residence, first occupied in 1932. Even during the Great Depression some people flourished. The property is magnificent, with beautifully maintained grounds and an impressive main house. Each room, we were told, is unique. Ours was very large and comfortable, in part because it was centrally air conditioned. The only... More

We loved this place and will return again! We were visiting Wake Forest on a college tour with our son. What a lovely surprise Graylyn is! We stayed for 4 nights as we toured all the colleges in the NC area. We used this as home base each day and were so delighted to return to the lovely hotel every... More

We travelled to Winston-Salem to visit our daughter at Wake Forest last weekend and stayed at Graylyn for the first time. We stayed at several other area hotels but this is clearly the best. The property is outstanding, the staff is incredible, and food was excellent. Staying at Graylyn was a true vacation compared to the other hotels in the... More

It's apparently really difficult to book a room here, so we felt lucky to have been invited for a weekend stay during a recent visit to Wake Forest U. The property is a converted luxury estate that once belonged to the Gray family, and its picturesqueness is matched by its hospitality. Our room in the Mews annex, formerly the stables... More

I finally secured a room at Graylyn. Our son is a sophomore at Wake, and I have been dying to stay at Graylyn. I was not disappointed. After many other Winston-Salem reservations at the local hotels, which cost less but have no personality, I felt like a special guest at Graylyn. I was in a corner room in the Mews,... More

Staying at The Graylyn is like being thrown back in time. I had only one evening at the hotel, for a meeting at Wake Forest University. I would recommend looking at their web site before you come. I was greeted in the driveway by a bellman that must have been working there for 40 years, and my reservation was handled... More

I just spent one night at this hotel while taking my daughter to visit Wake Forest University. We were really looking forward to our stay at Graylyn and I wanted to love this hotel, but it really fell short. First of all, I thought that I had reserved one of the antique rooms in the Manor House as I wanted... More

I stayed here last year with my family. We stayed in the mews. The mews are impressive from the outside. We had a room with two beds that was nothing special. I killed at least 5 spiders on the ceiling that had made webs in the corners of the room. No effort was made by any of the housekeeping staff... More
