“Perfect guest treatment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012

We are frequent travelers and this is a place that surely makes you want to return. The staff is very attentive and their courtesy exhibits the best of the "old south charm". The facility is amazing and very well kept. The on site restaurant, Circa 1886, is alone worth a trip to romantic Charleston. Do not miss the breakfast!

Room Tip: I would reccomend either room 5 or 7.

We visited Wentworth Mansion 2/13-2/15/2012. Entire visit exceeded our expectations. We have traveled extensively throughout Europe, Caribbean, and U.S. -including Hawaii. Wentworth Mansion service staff professionalism matches any we have experienced. Entire property is very well maintained and exemplifies "old world charm". Our room was very spacious with fireplace and seperate sitting room. Bathroom very large with all modern emenities. Location is close to all restaurants and shopping but still maintains quiet elegance. We certainly feel our money was well spent and will absolutely return in the future.

Room Tip: Request fireplace during cooler months - a very nice touch.

I've been to many lovely, lovely hotels all over the world, but it's so rare to find one like WM which hits the perfect tone--it is confident in what it is, and delivers it w/ great style and generousity. First, the mansion itself is a one-of-the kind gem, the perfect scale and imbued with history, and beautifully restored so the rooms themselves so unique, and unlike the hardly memorable experience one has staying at a glitzy, chain hotel.

The staff could not be more helpful, but in a way that is not obsequious or phony but truly interested in seeing you have a lovely stay. I posed a challenge to the concierge, (Mark)before we arrived (what can i do with two teenagers?) and he took the trouble to send me a lengthy email with excellent ideas--even before we arrived! Christian and Stephanie also couldn't be more helpful...and interested in seeing we had a good time, but never intrusive. They picked up on our interest to have an "off the beaten track" experience and suggested several restaurants frequented by locales, and places we could go to to play golf on public courses. No request hit into their court seemed to difficult or too much.

And then, the niceties (cocktails, tea, chocolates, newspapers, free parking, lovely, generous breakfasts, great bathrooms, whirlpool tubs, great lighting) which, again, weren't over the top or inappropriate, but were just right. I had been there ten years ago and remember it fondly, but second time around it has improved with age. Wouldn't hesitate to return again, and think it deserves to be enjoyed by all.

I had to write this to let everyone know who is looking for a place to stay to be treated like royalty,this is the place to be. From the time of check in to check out you will not want for anything that the staff there is not more than willing to do, with a smile on their face.
Great attitudes of ALL the staff we came in contact with. Its like home away from home.
Very warm and welcoming. The rooms are huge and beautiful, and very, very clean.
4 blocks from King Street. Great parking...Wonderful breakfast and afternoon horderves.
You must try it!!!

Lovely spot. Room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. We were in a pet-friendly room and it was great - not the "second class" rooms one often gets with a pet-friendly room. We'll go back next time we're in town.

Words cannot adequately describe how perfect this place is. The building itself is gorgeous, the service, impeccable and overall nothing needed or could have been added to make this place even more perfect than it already is. The breakfast was great, the dinner at circa 1886 was divine! the rooms were comfortable with both fireplaces working. It's quiet and private and very romantic! I without a doubt would plan on returning to this place. Simply fantastic!
