“Historic house with great staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2009

We chose this inn based on recommendations from a friend and it exceeded our expectations. The staff was one of the best ever, they were always present and ready to help. The inn keeper Jennifer Morgan was fantastic, recommending everything from a local nail spa for a pedi to a costume shop for some Halloween shopping. All the staff really went above and beyond, even the breakfast servers were exceptional ( when I couldn't decide between breakfast selections, they brought me a combination of both that I had wanted !) The breakfast itself was possibly the best B & B breakfast I have ever had , I will definitely be going there again just for that !. Our room was spacious and had a great jacuzzi tub for 2 ( we stayed in suite 9). Only down side is we wished it would have had a pool, we suggested this to Jennifer and she said they were considering one in the future. The inn itself is beautiful and has a great sense of history. A few blocks off the main road ( King street but an easy walk) Close to the college of Charleston for any visiting relatives it would be a great choice. Would definitely go to again and recommend highly to all, you will not be disappointed.

This is the third time my husband and I have stayed here and we love it more with every trip. The accommodations are lovely, large, and comfortable. The entire staff at the Wentworth is excellent; and they are helpful, pleasant, and obviously well trained.

I cannot say enough nice things about this place.

Complimentary breakfast, wine and appetizers, and chocolate truffles on your pillow at night are luxurious. The professionalism of the staff is impressive, and the mansion and its furnishings classy and elegant.

We live in Charleston and decided to stay at Wentworth to experience their July 4th picnic. The hotel was beautiful; we were welcomed with wine and cheese upon check-in Friday afternoon. Our room was very spacious and the bathroom luxurious. Everyone of the staff were gracious and welcoming. The picnic on the lawn was exceptional - in atmosphere and food quality! The huge array of pork, chicken, local shrimp, local vegetables, and desserts were all delicious. My only regret was I couldn't eat more. From the cupola, we had a panoramic view of all the local fireworks. We plan to stay again next year.

My husband and I historically stay somewhere else when visiting Charleston, but this time we wanted to bring Penny - our Boston Terrier. To our surprise, we found this beautiful historic mansion in the downtown Charleston area that allowed pets. Wentworth mansion is full of antiques, and rich history of the South. It has a beautiful cupola that you can go out on that has a breathtaking view of Charleston - the church steeples are magnificant from this view. The mansion has Circa 1886 restaurant on the grounds which, in my opinion, is an undiscovered diamond of a place to eat in Charleston. The food and service were excellent (pricey but worth it if you are fine dining), but it seemed that only guests of the mansion were in attendance. Their breakfast was incredibly good as well. Our room was decorated with lovely antiques, had a working gas fireplace. Iced tea was available most any time in the sitting room, and wine and h'or d'ouerves were served every afternoon at 5PM. Fresh flowers in all area of the mansion.... I cannot say enough about the level of service at the inn. Every need was attended to, and everyone there was friendly and they took the time to always speak to Penny and acknowledge her as well. The inn keeper made exceptions for us - for example, we missed the wine hour upon our arrival, so a glass of wine was brought to our room - no extra charge. We had our own private balcony and stairs that led to the garden patio. The other place we stay in Charleston charged a daily fee to park our car. Wentworth Mansion has free parking for their guests so this saved us money. The breakfast was free each morning - it was a FULL breakfast served at Circa 1886 with full waiter service. There is a spa on the grounds but we didnt try it this time. We will be back very soon!!!

My husband found this B&B online while searching for a place for us to celebrate our 31st anniversary. We knew we wanted to travel to Charleston, SC, and we also needed a place that is "pet friendly". We had the courtyard suite which is on the ground floor of the mansion with a backdoor that made it very convenient for taking our dog out to the grassy area in the courtyard. The suite was impeccable - very comfy sunroom, huge bedroom with king bed and double jacuzzi tub and a huge bathroom with a double walk-in shower equipped with two shower heads on opposite sides of the shower. The room had a wonderful stereo system and it was playing classical music when we arrived and each evening the housekeeping staff would have it turned on when we returned to our room for the evening. Housekeeping kept the room top-notch coming in each morning to clean and make the bed and again in the evening for turn-down service complete with chocolates. Each member of the staff was welcoming, friendly, courteous and extremely knowledgeable about the area. We were given excellent tips about where to eat and what to see. They were very accommodating also about making reservations for us and calling for the pedi-cabs to pick us up. The location of the mansion is an easy walk to downtown but far enough away from the hustle and bustle so you are not disturbed by it. We would definitely stay there again and have no reservations recommending it. Our stay included a first-rate breakfast each morning in their well-known restaurant and wine and appetizers each evening. Coffee was available each morning and cold drinks each afternoon as well as cordials. Be sure and check out the cupola on the rooftop - awesome views!!
