This place is amazing! They made our wedding truly special! I loved most of the staff and they were so polite! I would recommend this retreat to anyone wanting a special place to take their wife, special someone, or anyone! Truly a four diamond visit for a bed and breakfast!

That was a major problem with our internet reservation. Melissa made it up to us in ways that made me glad that whole mess happened. Beautiful room and service. Friendly intimate atmosphere brings out the opportunity to speak with other guests.

The house is beautiful, the staff is exceptionally friendly, but our room was cold most of the time. We chose the savannah room on the ground floor because it was the only one with two beds which we prefer. But the kitchen and laundry were also on the ground floor. There was one thermostat in the hallway for all the... More

Centrally located, Ballastone in a delightful throwback to Victorian living not only in its physical accommodations, but also in how guests are treated. Afternoon tea, in a splendid tearoom, is done in fine Auntie style, with excellent nibbles and fine tableware. About the only thing missing is Manish, the Indian butler. Ditto excellent breakfasts, brought to your table of choice... More

We didn't feel welcomed here and there was a different person behind the desk almost every time we went in and out so there was not any continuity of service. Our room was fine but our bathroom was small and i am not sure the last time i stayed anywhere, where there were still shower curtains, we didn't know they... More

My stay at the Ballastone Inn was a surprise birthday present from my husband. This was the first time either of us have ever stayed at a Bed and Breakfast. As soon as we pulled up infront of the building, I was immediately in awe. We stayed in a room on the first floor, the Sorgum Cane room. Very charming.... More

Just returned from our 1st visit to Savannah, GA and an amazing stay at the Ballastone Inn! We were introduced to the Ballastone Inn after receiving a Gift Certificate several months ago & after doing some research on this property, the reviews were phenomenal, so we booked the 3-night stay. From the minute we walked through the front door, we... More

We had never been to Savannah before and the Ballastone Inn made it the perfect getaway. The staff could not have been more welcoming and accommodating. While on the expensive side for us, the value added by wonderful breakfasts (fritatta, french toast), high tea, hors d'oeuvres and wine bar, made it worth it. We stayed in the Mulberry Tulip room...

Lovely very old Southern mansion. We stayed in the China Trade room, an incredibly large, ornate, suite room filled with antiques and a gigantic 4 post incredibly comfortable bed. Staff was attentive, very helpful, welcoming, friendly and skilled. Wonderful nice touches like high tea and baked goods in the afternoon, port & sherry in the evening before supper made it... More
