We were in a Queen Room with no fireplace. It was a nice room but the water coming out of the tap was just plain foul and the bathroom had a very unpleasant smell. It had a very metallic taste and was slightly discolored. At first we thought this was how all of Hilton Head water was so we accepted it and used our bottled water to drink and brush our teeth.
Then next day we asked at the desk and the young lady said there was nothing she could do. After dining out we realized that other water on the Island was okay so the next day we again approached the desk to talk to a different young lady who agreed to move us midweek.
We moved into a Queen Fireplace which was very nice and thoroughly enjoyed the ambience of the fire as it was a bit chilly in the evenings. (The fireplaces are gas but manually turned on when a wall switch would make more sense). The water in this room was fine. The next day we talked to yet another person at the desk. (So far there had been a different person every day). This person finally admitted that they knew there was a water problem but that it was not limited to just one room, or the same room every time. With that information all I can say is if you experience funky water do NOT accept it and demand another room!
The breakfast served daily was good and had at least one item change daily. It certainly is a cost savings so you can use your money for dinner. Happy Hour from 5 to 7 got you 2 beers or glasses of wine. There were also cookies whcih were good but a strange sweet choice with alcohol. I would have much preferred fruit and cheese. There is a Harris Teeter within walking distance so we did get some cheese to enjoy with our drinks.
Each room has a small fridge but no microwave, which would be nice for reheating leftovers from dinner. Also, apparently only the King rooms have a jacuzzi but the bathroom is so large this property could easlly add those to every room.
If our room had a jacuzzi, a microwave, and there were no water problems, I would have rated this property as excellent.
