The location, decor and staff are first rate. But the sleeping was disturbed by beautifully soft micro fiber sheets that were hot and sticky. The Duvet was covered in nice white cotton and in the middle of the night we kicked off the top micro fiber sheet and slept with the duvet. The air conditioning in Oglethorpe suite was also... More

My husband and I have stayed here several times and love it. The rooms are amazing each one has a unique decor. We have stayed in the Gazebo and China Trade Rooms, the Gazebo being my favorite so far. We are going back soon and have the Scarborough Fair booked. The staff is courteous, knowledgeable about the area, and will... More

What a wonderful place the Ballastone Inn is! From the time you walk in the door, you realize just how special it is. Melissa was truly wonderful and welcoming to us. We were able to get into our room a little early...thanks to Jackie, who did a wonderful job everyday. We stayed in the Mary Musgrave room on the 3rd... More

We stayed for two nights as part of a road trip and would gladly go straight back. Nothing was to much trouble for Lea or any of the staff. From helping with very heavy bags to moving our car for us. The inn is perfectly located with all of the squares and the river within walking distance. Make sure you... More

This hotel is great. It's very small and intimate (it feels like your staying in someone's house in the 1890's). The staff is very friendly and the rooms have an authentic historic feel. We stayed in the China Trade room on the 2nd floor and it was beautiful with a four-poster bed and large seating area. The only downside to... More

And already planning another visit during the holidays. This trip was a mama/daughter holiday filled with lots of art and small boutiques and walks through the wonderful garden squares. The staff is very sincere in helping you feel right at home. I even felt comfortable wearing one of the Ballastone bathrobes down to pick up a mug of morning coffee.... More

We stayed two nights in the beautiful Victoria suite. From the second we arrived to the moment we left we were treated like family. The entire team are gracious hosts and nothing is too much trouble. They really care that everything is perfect and are 100% genuine. Lovely treats for afternoon tea at 4pm and canapés at 6. Nice to... More

We stayed two nights here. There really is nothing I can complain about. They even have a few parking spots behind the place which is a rarity. After you park you are a 10 min walk from most everything, the river, the market, etc. You don't need your car at all. The inside of Ballastone Is beautiful. Staff was extremely... More
