What a great place!
While driving on Gaston street I noticed a couple of B&B's however The Gastonian stood out. It was so beautiful! It has creeping fig on the walls of the mansion and the garden was amazing. So I decided to pull over and go inside. When I walked in a cheerful ready to assist concierge greeted me her name was Laura. She explained their availability and the room rate. I agreed to take the room for one night. (Eli Whitney). I always wanted to stay at a B&B so this was perfect!
While at the front desk I was greeted by the bellman Walter. He showed me to my room and helped me with my luggage. I must say both Laura and Walter were knowledgeable and eager to assist. (It’s hard to find great customer service these days.)
When I walked into the room I asked Walter what was the fresh smell in the room it was amazing. He said he wasn't sure but he'll speak with the housekeeper. Talk about going over and beyond your duties. Needless to say the bed was comfortable, the room smelled amazing and it was clean. (My type of place)
The decorations throughout the mansion added that special touch. Afternoon hor’derves were great as well. I didn't make it down stairs for dessert however I'm sure it was just as delicious. Saturday morning I ordered the Morning Glory and it was yummy. The kitchen staff was very friendly and they worked well together.
Overall I enjoyed my stay and I have already bragged about The Gastonian to my friends. I can’t wait to visit again especially to sit on the brand new verandah that’s under construction as of now.
Keep up the southern hospitality!
