“Great place to stay in Columbia”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

We're only a night into a two night stay and already love the place so much we had to jump on here and leave our review.

The owner greeted us at the door and was happy to answer questions about the house and the inn, even though it was late. He was very friendly.

Instead of the typical "breakfast is served at ..." he asked what time we'd like breakfast and was happy to accommodate our schedule, which is always 'running late'. This morning, breakfast was served hot and ready to go, just a couple minutes after we sat down at the table, later that we had said the night before. He adjusted to our schedule again. (Sorry we were running late). :)

We are having a great time in Columbia and at 1425. We'll be back, for sure.

Thanks for being great hosts.

We reserved this room for our wedding night. We did not want to be bothered. This was the perfect place. We woke up the next morning to a nice surpise. David had cut out our wedding announcement and had it waiting for us with our breakfast. The experience was perfect. We could not have asked for more. Thanks 1425 Inn

My son graduated from USC on May 5th. and prior to this date I attemped to find a nice place for my family to have lunch and celebrate his graduation. When I called around to many of the local restaurants they were either booked or didn't not take reservations. I knew with a city the size of Columbia and with a college the size of USC that finding that quaint spot was almost impossible. I decided to check on the B&B's. When I googled B&B's in Columbia I saw where The 1425 Inn offered this service. I called and amazingly they were not booked and said that they could accommodate my party. I spoke with David on several occaisions and he was very friendly and helpful. I picked the meal which was a fresh salad, coffee crusted ribeye, smashed potatoes and steamed vegagtables with homemade cheesecake and fresh strawberries for desert. IT WAS FABULOUS! We arrived at the house a few minutes after noon, he had the tables ready. We had the best meal and service that day than any of the other many thousand graduates. The house was extremely clean, beautifully decorated and the food and service was extremely wonderful! David said that he had been in the restaurant business for many years prior to running this B&B and it showed! If you have an event that you need a quaint, beautifully decorated, and extremely delicious meal prepared, this is your place. We did not spend the night, but I am sure that would be a wonderful experience also! Oh, and the cost was very resonable! Thank You David for helping to make this special day a very memorable one!!!

David made us very welcome and we enjoyed his conversation. The rooms were very large and the beds extremely comfortable. We were surprised to find that the house was only built in the 1990's as the design and interior would suggest it is much older! The important things were immaculately clean, however, more attention needs to be paid to the finer details (for example, the clock/radio next to the bed was covered in a thick layer of dust), fresh flowers would be nicer than silk as they don't gather the dust!). The shower was disappointingly small in the Alexander room and had low water pressure. We were looking forward to sitting on the rockers on the front porch but found the furniture too dirty to sit on - we appreciate that it's spring and the pollen is a nightmare but a quick brush off wouldn't take long. Also, an overflowing bucket of cigarette butts on the porch is not very attractive! Breakfast was adequate but average - not what we have come to expect of bed & breakfast accommodations in the USA - especially given the tariff paid. Don't get us wrong, this was a nice stay and we enjoyed it but it was nothing special.

What a gem! Beautifully appointed rooms, great breakfast, and good conversation. We did a Carolinas road trip, and this was the best B&B of our journey. Rooms and bathrooms were large, and beds were super comfy. Artwork and furnishings throughout the house were so warm and welcoming. Wish I lived there! Definitely THE place to stay in Columbia, SC.

Room Tip: Any room is a winner.

This was a great little bed and breakfast. The house is very nice and the owners are very kind and friendly. The rooms were extremely spacious and the beds are literally the most comfortable I have every slept on. The only aspect of this bed and breakfast that could use improvement was the shower; the bathroom had a beautiful and clean bathtub if you desire, but the shower was off to the side in a cramped little space (other rooms might have been different though).

The 1425 Inn is excellent.

The place is very clean. The rooms are large and well furnished with chairs, tables, and good lighting. Even so, they feel warm and cozy. The rooms and open areas are quite relaxing.

Our home cooked bountiful breakfasts were very good – – bacon, eggs, omelets, fresh fruit, orange juice, large variety of cereals, coffee and teas. We would happily choose the 1425 Inn again.
