“The only place to stay in Savannah”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

We spent four days at the the lovely Hamilton-Turner Inn in Savannah. This lovely bed and breakfast is a gorgeous historic home right on Lafayette Square. It is so centrally located, you can walk anywhere in the Historic District. The hosts and staff are extremely helpful and friendly and the gourmet breakfasts are something special.

What a wonderful surprise for a very special weekend. We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and could not have chosen a better place. The room we chose was perfect and matched the picture on the website so it met all of our expectations and more. The warmth and gracious service we received from the staff along with the Innkeeper cannot be described adequately, it is something you have to experience. The entire stay was delightful and with no worries, because they take care of everything! You will enjoy the "southern" cooking every morning too. We had a wonderful celebration, thank you.

The Inn is beautifully decorated and furnished from the parlor through the bedrooms. The staff was very attentive and helpful with recommendations and reservations. Jim is the perfect host for the delicious southern breakfast that changes daily and is served in an elegant dining room. My wife and I stayed over the Thanksgiving weekend, and, with the Inn's perfect location on Lafayette Square, we were able to walk all over the Historic District and to the riverfront for meals and entertainment.The location is ideal, but if you are not a walker, public transportation (some free) is available on the Square, as well as horse drawn carriages and bicycle cabs.
The rooms were spotless, and nicely furnished. We started in the carriage house in a smaller room, but it had the advantage of opening onto a courtyard with a fountain. During the stay we were promoted to a second floor, main building corner room with a beautiful view.
Tea, lemonade, and sweets were served in the afternoon, wine and hors d'oerves in the evening, and port at night. This was really special, and created a wonderful memory. We'll go back to see Gay and Jim again..

Room Tip: There is no elevator so if you have any limiting disability secure a lower floor room. Also, making...

I highly recommend the Hamilton-Turner Inn. Our room was comfortable and the service, throughout our stay, was exceptional. Breakfast was delicious-a baked good, fruit, yogurt and granola- along with a hot entree of the day. The first day was eggs and bacon on a croissant and the second day was peach French toast.
The inn is in a great location-It is an easy and enjoyable walk from the inn to shopping, restaurants, and historical sites. There are several restaurants nearby and the staff is very helpful with recommendations and reservations.

If you enjoy B & B's, you'll love the Hamilton-Turner Inn! The location on Lafayette Square is ideal - close to all the attractions but in a quiet beautiful square. The inn is beautiful, and the service excellent. Our hosts were so nice, and the breakfasts were perfect. We had biscuits and gravy and eggs benedict, both perfectly prepared. The inn also provides complimentary wine and treats at various times throughout the day - a nice touch. We thought Bryan and Jeremy were especially helpful and cheerful. We highly recommend!

Savannah has been a long time "home away from home" for me and my family. I have always admired the inn (adjacent to the church) as we have frequented the cathedral for mass throughout the years. Our visit to Savannah this past weekend will be one that will not soon be forgotten. The charm and elegance the staff provided was second to none. Our room and accomodations were perfect. It was by far the perfect 10th Anniversary gettaway we could have ever imagined. I highly recommend the Inn to anyone looking for a taste of old world charm and elegance in Savannah.

In the heart of the historic district, with Flannery O'Connor's childhood home right across the street, this inn is the perfect location to explore this lovely city on foot. As soon as you step in the door (and you'll have to ring the bell or knock, because it's kept locked against the hordes of tourists who want to peek inside) you'll be greeted with true Southern hospitality. Every little detail -- from the afternoon lemonade and cookies to the evening wine and appetizers to the late-night glass of port -- is there to make you feel right at home. Our room was huge and comfortable, and we really appreciated the free wifi and the box of candies. The staff not only emailed us with restaurant suggestions ahead of time, they lined up reservations for us before we arrived. Finally, there are the breakfasts, with traditional favorites such as eggs and grits or peach french toast. The portions are huge, so if you have a smaller appetite, you might want to request half portions.

My only criticism was that the mattress was a bit soft for me. When they get around to replacing their mattresses, they might want to opt for firmer ones next time.
