“The top B&B of our 8 stop fly drive”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

We have been very fortunate to stay at some marvellous B&Bs during our fortnight holiday, most of which feature in the Select Registry guide, however the Bloomsbury Inn tops them all. It is a fantastic house in a beautiful location but the reason it is top is due to the hosts Bruce and Katherine. Being reserved I was dubious as to the merits of a social hour but it was most enjoyable . In addition Bruce's tour of the house the following morning was fascinating. His extensive travelling made for some great anecdotes but not at all in an overbearing manner.

We just finished a get-away weekend in Camden for my husband's birthday and stayed at the beautiful Bloomsbury Inn. The Inn was spotless, and the breakfasts were out of this world. Bruce and Katherine made our stay so enjoyable. Five stars is not enough -- they deserve ten! Our stay was far above what I could have hoped for -- and I was hoping for a lot since it was my husband's birthday. We stayed in the General's Chamber -- absolutely exquisite and very relaxing. Bruce and Katherine are a delight and a wealth of information for enjoying historic Camden and the surrounding areas. We look forward to going back again. We had a wonderful time at Bloomsbury. Again . . . 10 stars not 5!

We booked this bed and breakfast based on it's location and trip advisor reviews and were not disappointed. Our room (the generals chamber) was huge and beautiful with the original 1930's bathroom in very good condition. Katherine and Bruce were exceptional hosts and we thoroughly enjoyed our "social hour" sat on the porch drinking wine and nibbles with them and the other guests. We took recommendation for dinner and ended up in a fab Mexican restaurant in town (where there also happened to be a blues festival this weekend). We walked the mile into town and back without difficulty. Breakfast was incredible! Apple dumpling to start followed by ham, eggs, tomato and Benedict's sauce. We left feeling very relaxed and very full! Thank you.

We were lucky enough to stay at the Bloomsbury Inn last week (sadly only planned one night there!). The house is beautiful and Bruce and Katherine are amazing hosts. A huge bonus was the awesome breakfast...the food was delicious and the setting was was wonderful. The conversation was fascinating, room was extremely comfortable, and Miss Kitty Stray was adorable...what more could anyone want?

Kristin and I just returned from a great weekend adventure in Camden and it included a stay at Bloomsbury. We were in town for the 2013 SC State Guard Hurricane Hike and had a packed weekend. Bruce and Katherine were simply the best hosts we have ever encountered at a B&B. I guess it helped that they are a military family and so are we, but we hit it off and had a great time. The home is a beautiful example of southern living that you see in books. We missed breakfast on Saturday with early events, but breakfast on Sunday was spectacular and relaxing on the wrap around porch was so relaxing. We will definately be back to visit Camden and our plans will include staying at Bloomsbury. Thank you for making our first visit to the area such a wonderful memory, we look forward to spending some more time on the porch on our next visit.

Room Tip: We had a complete tour of the house and all of the rooms are great. The front rooms are 20x20 and t...

On a trip to Charleston for our 25th wedding anniversary, we decided to spend the first night at the Bloomsbury Inn. What a great decision. The Inn is beautiful - topnotch in every respect - and the innkeepers, Katherine and Bruce, are friendly, welcoming hosts. We had a wonderful time at Bloomsbury and in Camden and highly recommend the Inn and area for a relaxing and luxurious stay.

I stay at the Bloomsbury Inn once a month on average for work. It is fabulous! Immaculate, comfortable, great food, and always great company, whether with Katherine and Bruce or with other guests. The house and grounds are beautiful. Katherine and Bruce are full of information about the area---where to visit, eat, and shop. It is just wonderful!
