Planning a wedding? The manager will appear to sell you on using Brandon Hall for the perfect nuptials! Just staying for a night or two, you'll meet Mike, who cooks, cleans and will answer your questions. Tour, a bit of history, location of the Brandon graveyard ask Mike, you won't see anyone else! This is no rap on Mike, he was very friendly, forthcoming and helpful! We arrived at Brandon Hall around 7-7:30 PM, had the codes for the gate and our rooms. Had we not run into another couple who were on their way out to dinner it would have seemed as if we had stumbled into a place run by some unseen force.
The home is gorgeous, rooms are beautiful, the breakfast quite good, but the appearance of the manager only when an appointment with a potential wedding customer called her to the home left us feeling a bit unappreciated. I know that some innkeepers are so "in your face" that they are a nuisance but to act as if your stay really didn't matter is a bit disconcerting given the personal touch that most B&B's provide.
If staying in an antebellum plantation home of great beauty is on your "bucket list" then the Brandon Hall Plantation more than fills the bill. If you want to feel that your comfort was a concern to anyone other than "the help" look elsewhere!
My average rating for service had nothing to do with Mike he was great, but innkeepers or management that appear not to "give a damn" are a problem!
