My wife and I stayed for several nights at the Ballastone Hotel approximately a month ago and I have been thinking about the stay since checking out. From my experience, this place is not for everybody because they have check in policies which are simply not very customer oriented and it is very firmly enforced by the senior management. In...

Came here with my mother for an overnight stay. The atmosphere is beautiful and the people who worked there were delightful. My mother enjoys a good English tea. She enjoyed it so much the owner invited us to come after we had checked out to have tea again. The hospitality was simply wonderful. Thank you for a lovely stay.

This was our second stay here after several years, and how happy we were to be back! This was a business conference, at another hotel, that we just were not happy staying at. Jessica at the Ballastone worked her magic to accomodate us at the inn. This property is a beautiful opulent old inn which was built in the 1800s,... More

My wife had booked 3 rooms at this beautiful B&B for our Anniversary. Just happens to be St. Patrick's day🍀. We were here for 3 nights with my parents and dear friends. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed with open arms! The staff is superb. All reservations were handled properly, informed us about the history of the property... More

This was our first trip to Savannah. We had seen that the Ballastone Inn was a top rated bed & breakfast in the Savannah area and it seemed like a great place. We arrived earlier than expected (and earlier than check-in), Melissa the concierge was very helpful and charming. She directed us to a lunch location less than 50 feet... More

We had a wonderful time. Great location. I fell in love with Savannah thanks in part to the Inn. The Inn is delightful. The staff is outstanding. No detail was too small. They took great pains to help us with our needs. Breakfast was a delight. As was afternoon tea. The port and sherry at night made for a great... More

This is a perfect inn to stay in. Everything is just perfect. Location is ideal and if you get there early there is parking at the hotel. The staff are charming and very helpful. The room we stayed in was very nice. Cannot fault the place

Based on TA reviews we arrived at the Ballastone Inn with high expectations. As we entered the foyer, the welcome from an apparently inexperienced hostess was nonexistent, other than to perfunctorily ask, "Are you checking in?" as she walked to another room. We were eventually shown to our room and told where to park the car. Our room was spacious... More

Our total experience at Ballastone was warm, genuine, and most enjoyable. The breakfasts were generous and tasty, the room (named Gazebo) was large, beautifully decorated and quiet. Melissa and her crew do a stellar job making guests feel appreciated and welcome.

7th visit over the past 23 years. Changes in ownership over that period of time, but the standards in all categories remain the best. One of our two favorite B & B's in the country and we have been to plenty of them. Breakfast- great. Tea time goodies- great. Canapes with wine- (the wine is not free-c'mon, you can't have... More
