We only had one night to spend here on our way back to NY from Florida, and sadly we had some car troubles, so we got here late and left the next morning, but what a stay!! It was amazingly beautiful, friendly and delicious!! Olivia waited late for us, and couldn't have been more gracious - or funny!! She is... More

Our stay was in August 2014 and we really enjoyed afternoon tea, as well as the staff. We stayed in the Orange Grove Room, located on the bottom floor. It was very nice! The food was well above average. The weather outside was quite hot and humid, but that added to the wonderful Charleston atmosphere! The one, critical, problem that... More

We stayed at the Governor's House in January and enjoyed every minute. Our room was wonderful, the breakfast was fantastic and the staff was delightful. I can't say enough good things about our stay here. This is my first time posting on Trip Advisor for a hotel and would give this a five star. Can't wait to go back!!!!

We had a wonderful time spending a quick weekend at the Governor's House Inn! My husband and I went in January after finding a deal on Groupon. We stayed in one of the smaller rooms on the the third floor and it was so charming! I was worried that the somewhat low, angled ceilings would make the room feel small... More

What an amazing place. We love bed and breakfasts, and this was one of our favorites. Our room was huge and had a nice porch, but it was too cold for us to take advantage of during the stay. The home is very tastefully decorated and rich with history. The staircase is exceptional but seems incredibly tall while dragging suitcases... More

We just spent a delightful three nights in one of the nicest inns we've ever visited. Friendly staff, comfortable beds, spotless everywhere, excellent breakfasts, afternoon wine and tea, an inn cat....what's not to like. Then there's the superb location right along Broad St with easy access to everything in downtown Charleston yet perfectly quiet at night. I imagine one could... More

It was truly like sleeping in a museum. Our room was in the attic and we walked up very creaky stairs to get there. But before checking in, we were given a tour of the public rooms and a history lesson. It was the home of South Carolina's first Governor, Rutledge. The staff was more than helpful in making reservations,... More

Excellent and friendly staff, great location and lovely house! The breakfast and afternoon tea served bring a special touch of southern flavor to the stay. Definitely recommend this inn, especially for couples and romantics in general.

Stayed for 3 nights in December. The Inn was decorated for Christmas and looked lovely. There was a large Christmas tree in the entrance foyer. We were very warmly welcomed by Victoria who is a true gem and an asset to the Inn. Supplied us with a map which she went through explaining all the places to visit. Our room... More

My wife and I ventured down to Charleston for our first visit and were fortunate enough to get a room at the Governor's Inn. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful in suggesting areas to visit. We enjoyed the afternoon tea shortly after checking in and had a wonderful time visiting with other guests as it is held in a... More
