My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights during the first week of August... I still cannot stop thinking about our wonderful stay. We had Room #7, but I would have gladly enjoyed any room in the B&B. The staff was first-class, the grounds were heavenly, and the entire atmosphere was welcoming. The breakfast at the restaurant was delicious... More

We spent three nights at the Wentworth Mansion and wish we had stayed longer. The grounds are beautiful, the staff are wonderful and attentive and it was just a fantastic experience. The rooms we stayed in (2 different visits over 4 days) were very high ceiling rooms with wonderful furnishings. Breakfast at Circa 1886 (included) was awesome. All the little... More

The Wentworth Mansion is simply a wonderful, gracious and calm setting for a beautiful vacation. Staff could not be any more helpful, remembering our names, our preferences and always ensuring our comfort and happiness. The cocktail hour is splendid- elegantly served and with excellent hors d'oeuvres. There is a full magnificent breakfast included with your stay at Circa 1886, and... More

I think I've stayed here about 10 times now, since 2000. The rooms are large, and I would imagine it would be impossible to replicate the decor and architecture if built today. The staff is perfectly wonderful. This is a very classy place. The location is great because it is not right on the main roads with all the shops/people... More

We had dinner in the restaurant Circa 1886. It was formal but not stuffy. the food was elegant and delicious with the wait staff being friendly but not intrusive. My husband and I also thoroughly...

This is converted mansion that became an office building that is now a hotel. It has 22 rooms and the rooms are quite large. The bed was very nice but the furniture needs some updating. It is a beautiful place and the employees were SO nice. The location is fairly central and the breakfast is excellent. I am not crazy... More

This historic old place offers a great combination of refinement and fun --just like Charleston itself. Very elegant and filled with all the right touches large and small: high ceilings, large rooms, big beds with fluffy comforters. Wine, cheese and chocolate. You'll definitely feel welcome (and a little spoiled). Take a rickshaw bike taxi around the ride basin and through... More
