B&B without the "B"

We stayed for 4 nights here in the Angel Oak Room.

All the earlier, positive comments about the house, the location, the off-road parking are correct.

The big issue while we were there was the lack of a full breakfast at the property. We had received an email about a week before we arrived explaining the voucher/3 restaurant system. Other guests had not received prior notification and were very disappointed . Some say they would have cancelled had they known in advance.

Coffee and pastries were promised but on our first morning we went down at 9.35 to be told that the service had finished at 9.30. The service was said to be available from 8.30 - 9.30. On our second morning we went down at 8.30 and left at 8.45 when nobody appeared to set out the pastries etc.

We used the vouchers each day and found that $15 pppd did not cover a full breakfast with coffee, juice, cereal or fruit and a cooked option.As a result we clearly spent more for our B&B than expected.

On Day 1 we went out in pouring rain and had to walk more than 10 minutes to Cafe Framboise as we were told that the All Day Diner had a 30-minute wait.

This is not what we expected from one of the" leading B&B's in Charleston".

It won't be for much longer if they do not sort out this breakfast arrangement.

October Road Trip

A gracious historical house. We were greeted warmly by Meredith & Josh. Meredith went out of her way to help us with a room change due to some maintenance issues with our original room. This necessitated a further room change 2 days later due to their bookings, and there was an unfortunate exchange regarding addition charges for the 'upgraded' rooms. We have not yet received a response to our emailed compliant from director Kimberley, but Meredith resolved our main issue. There is NO BREAKFAST HERE! Demeaning $15 vouchers per person are given for a choice of 3 restaurants at varying distances of between 3 and 15 minutes away on foot. Highly unsatisfactory and very disappointing as we were not informed of this in advance. Based on our experience and with regret, we cannot recommend this inn.

Best Inn for location and accessibility

This is an excellent place to stay for location and accessibility to restaurants, shopping, and easy walking to most historical sights. We have stayed here before and totally enjoyed our experience. This was the first time we experienced a problem with the "breakfast experience" due to staffing issues. We were given vouchers (2 per room per day) that could be used in select restaurants in the area. These were excellent restaurants and were good for any time of day, and the owners are very accommodating. The Inn has on-site parking that helps with worrying about street level parking.
