“Beautiful History Mansion”
Reviewed July 18, 2011

I loved this mansion. The wood work and detail is outstanding. The staff was wonderful. There is a restaurant that was 5 star. The little touches sold me. There were free soft drinks in the room and free port and sherry set out every evening as well as appetizers. When you stay here you do not feel like you are in a hotel but rather a guest in a mansion. I have stayed in many 5 star hotels and this was one of my all time favorites.

Thank you for your wonderful review. The entire staff takes great pride in delivering great personal service whether at the mansion or at Circa 1886, our restaurant in the carriage house. We achieved our goal of making you feel like you are our house guest in a person's luxurious home.
We look forward to having you as our guests again.

This place was everything I was looking for. I have always wanted to stay in a plantation and they met this expectation. This place was beautiful and they treated us like we belonged there even with three children. Wonderful service and gorgeous rooms. The breakfast was wonderful as were the afternoon appetizers. I have not one bad thing to say about our stay. I definitely recommend staying there.

The garden suite was spacious and had its own entrance and sun room. A fresh rose was on the fireplace and in the large bathroom with a two person shower. The room had a tub for two and came with very comfy robes. When we went out to dinner, the bathroom towels were replaced, candles were lit, and a bottle of champagne and chocolates were in the room. Breakfast was wonderful and the staff members were exceptional. This was a great way to spend our 30th anniversary!

Room Tip: We loved the Garden Suite.

There places that are ok, there are places that are good, there are places that are great, and then there's the Wentworth Mansion. This places stands completely in its own category of excellence and accommodations. Frankly the people there serve you, they know their town, and they get you what you want. I have spent more on cruises and other vacations and so far only one other vacation in Hawaii has outdone this place (and that's mainly because is Hawaii). Other than that we had a fantastic time in just the few short days. The only down side but to be expected is that it can be expensive. Other than that I really don't think I could find something wrong with the place. If there was, they'll fix it, usually right then and there.

My husband booked a few nights at this beautiful Charleston, SC , mansion for our anniversary. Every detail was awesome! Brandon met us in the parking lot and called us by name! We experienced dinner at the on-site restaurant, which was fresh and presented with excellent service. My husband worried that he should have upgraded beyond the regular room. To our surprise, the room was a large suite, over 500 square feet, with both a whirlpool tub and double-nozzled shower, and included a fireplace and large glass sunroom. The place oozes with charm, and I could almost imagine myself as a young aristocrat in the late 1800's! Nice touches were robes, chocolates, fresh roses in the room and bath, and a nice selection of books placed in our room. The service was always perfect; unobtrusive and helpful. We enjoyed complementary breakfast in the dining room with Miss Betty (most delightful)! How refreshing that parking, drinks in the fridge, snacks, and WiFi were all complementary!! I took in a scalp/shoulder/body massage at the spa and found it equally excellent. For a romantic, impeccably clean place to stay, try the Wentworth Mansion!!! Our beautiful room was #2. Not sure how it compares with others, but we were very impressed!

Room Tip: Room 2 was below the parlor, but was very quiet.
