Service was wonderful, room was comfortable, all the modern conveniences, but still had historic charm. We loved the courtyard off of our room, the cooked to order breakfast, and even visits from Midnight, the cat. The Inn is within walking distance of just about everything in the historic area, but quiet, in a beautiful setting. We wanted to bring the wonderful staff home with us, but they decided to stay in Savannah.
Classic southern savannah style and hospitality, individually designed rooms to suit everyone, caring and welcoming staff that go out of their way to ensure that your individual needs are met, in particular the manager who is a fountain of Savannah knowledge! There is nothing that he cannot or will not sort for you, and nothing ever seems like you are asking him too much - he makes the stay at the Forsyth what it is - a charming, classic southern B&B of the highest standard. Would stay no where else in Savannah. Thank-you for lovely stay
We spent our 20th wedding anniversary there. It was a wonderful experience. We could walk about anywhere we wanted to go. The service was awesome. Libby was exceptional and helpful. The other staff was very nice too but we dealt with her the most. It was very pretty . We would definitely stay here again.
Staff was very helpful & courteous ... Room was clean, bed very comfortable, within walking distance to everything ... I didn't have a chance to try the onsite bar & restaurant but definitely will next time because I will be back again!
I thought I submitted a review already but here it goes again. The Galloway House was absolutely wonderful!! I had my own carriage house that was very clean, quaint and just perfect! The owners left breakfast items and a bottle of wine and all amenities were there, dishes, microwave, etc. which I was not expecting. You could walk to Forsyth Park and the street the B&B was on was very quiet and had a wonderful large porch I enjoyed wine and a good book on. I was also able to bring my lab which was wonderful! They even supplied dog bowls :) I would highly recommend The Galloway House and would def stay again!
You get every bit of your moneys' worth at this beautiful B&B. They are friendly, the rooms are clean and quaint. The ONLY thing I didn't love was having to carry my luggage up the stairs. Other than that it was absolutely outstanding! I would highly recommend it.
Two couples on our first visit to Savannah stayed in the Connor House for three nights and found it suited our needs perfectly. The accommodations are not as salubrious as some other historic B&B's in which we have stayed, but this was reflected in the cost and there was certainly lots of genuine character in the building. The staff were extremely helpful and cordial and we would definitely return to this B&B when returning to Savannah - which we would love to do, as we found the city fascinating, picturesque and loads of fun.
We have been staying at the Ballastone Inn for 10 years now. We love it! It is not only our favorite weekend getaway, but also a great place to celebrate special occasions...our 10 year wedding anniversary and my 60th birthday for instance. The staff is very accommodating, any special requests are taken care of. Chef makes amazing breakfasts and afternoon tea delights. Whenever we travel to Savannah, it is the Ballastone Inn for us.
The Inn was in a great location and the pricing was fair. Our room was amazing (though it was more like a loft than a room.) The service, however, was less than stellar. The girl at check-in was borderline rude and the breakfast system is a little strange, and could be quite inconvenient depending on your plans. All in all, it was not a bad experience, but I think I would look at and/or try another bed and breakfast before booking this one again.
Great location in the middle of Savannah Historic District. Most everything worth seeing is easy walking distance. Incredibly helpful and service oriented staff where there when needed. Morning breakfasts were special with a new entree each morning. We stayed in Tea Olive room, which was just as it looks on the web
Had a lovely stay at the 17Hundred90 Inn. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly, and the property was beautiful and historical. We did not eat the restaurant but had a few drinks in the lounge.
My wife and I had a wonderful experience at the Savannah B&B Inn. The two rooms we had were both very well appointed and comfortable. Friends told us to expect parking problems in Savannah but we had no problem parking in front of the Inn and then walking everywhere in the historic area. The food each morning was plentiful and well prepared. All in all a great experience which we would recommend to everyone.
We were only in Savannah for a day, but Keith made our stay incredibly pleasant. The house was gorgeous and extremely comfortable. We are actually considering visiting Savannah again just to stay at the Galloway House because of how relaxing our evening was.
This was the first time my daughter and I ever stayed in a Bed and Breakfast. We had the most wonderful time! The staff was pleasant and attentive, the morning breakfast was fantastic and the room was absolutely beautiful. We asked for dining recommendations and were thrilled with the results. They arranged for a tour of Savannah for us. We will definitely stay here the next time we go to Savannah! We stayed in the Turkish room - it is adorable. And the cats were fabulous.
I had been on a road trip of a lifetime, driving from the west coast, along the Gulf Coast, and finally reaching Savannah. It was heavenly to be in an environment that was more like home than a hotel. I will definitely be back.
Spent three wonderful nights in the relaxed setting of Roussell"s Garden. Bryan and Jan were the perfect hosts...ready to assist at any moment to insure that our stay in Savannah was very memorable...Jan's breakfasts were a highlight of the stay...superior to the two top rated restaurants in Savannah. By having only four guest rooms, it was delightful meeting some interesting couples as we enjoyed the cuisine. Spent an evening with Jan & Bryan at an Irish Pub doing Karaoke..what other hosts would do that? We'll definitely stay here again if we get back to Savannah. Barb & Hubie
We stayed here in August 2015 for two nights. It is a perfect place in the historic district of Savannah. Nice rooms and the terrace at the back is the perfect place for the good breakfasts they serve. Very friendly staff and we enjoyed our stay here. It is situated in the historic district and every place of interest in this area is on walking distance. Great value for your money!
The breakfast staff was so accommodating! I am fairly certain that they called someone in on his day off to make sure that I got the breakfast I requested. Wonderful location for wandering the historic district. Our room was lovely and was by far the best deal we could find even several months in advance for a suit with two ajoining rooms.
We (myself, hubby, Mom, and 2 dogs) stayed at The Galloway House from 8/22-8/27/15 in the main house apartment and it is absolutely beautiful! We have been renting homes for about 12 years and The Galloway House is, by far, the cleanest home we've ever rented...not spec of dust, not a stray cobweb, not a dog hair to be found. The beds are comfy, the kitchen is stocked with great breakfast items, and the furnishings are impressive. The house is located on a safe, quiet street with plenty of parking (on and off street) and several nice dining establishments close by. We have already recommended The Galloway House to several of our friends! Thanks to Jim and Keith for sharing this home with us while visiting beautiful Savannah!
My boyfriend and I stayed in Room 312 in the adjacent house to the Inn. It was beautiful and really private. We basically had a whole Savannah mansion to ourselves. Room was very clean and decorated beautifully. We had large bathroom with a huge jetted tub. We had maid service daily. We had to go to the main Inn for a continental breakfast of juice, milk, coffee and mainly pastries. Lounge area was nice and we enjoyed our complimentary drinks. We did not have an opportunity for dinner at the Inn but there were too many places in Savannah to choose from. Only complaint was the water in the bathroom had a horrible smell when you first turn it on. After running a while, the sulfur smell disappeared. It was a great experience and would definitely visit the 1790 Inn again. Unfortunately, no ghost sightings or hauntings.......
The Bed and Breakfast was a great place to stay while in Savannah. We loved the small touches of hospitality they offered. Breakfast was always good and there was always fresh fruit water/tea available and of course cookies with milk at night. It was the perfect location for walking around the historical district. We loved our stay and would enjoy a return to Savannah and this particular Bed and Breakfast!!
We came back for a second visit to this awesome b&b. Absolutely enjoyed the staff and the amenities to the fullest!!! Definitely would recommend this place to my friends and family!
My husband & I were so very pleased with our stay at the Tybee Island Inn. What a perfect place to celebrate our 10th anniversary! The Dolphin Room was comfortable & inviting. We especially enjoyed our morning coffee out on our private balcony. Under the shade of 200 yr old oaks with a breeze blowing in from the Atlantic, the front yard was the perfect place to spend a relaxing afternoon. Lee was the ever gracious hostess, always available to offer suggestions for area dining & activities. Additionally, Lee provides her guests with the comforts needed for the perfect beach getaway...towels, hats, chairs. It made traveling so far from home so easy! Hats off too to Chef Ashley for his outstanding, creative & bountiful breakfasts. The perfect way to start the day. We're definitely looking forward to another stay in the future!
Descubre Savannah, la ciudad de los fantasmas
La ciudad de Savannah es la mayor y también la más antigua del estado de Georgia. Fue fundada en 1733 junto con la colonia de Georgia y se convirtió, unos años después, en la capital de la Colonia Real de Georgia. Conocida como “la ciudad anfitriona del Sur”, por la tradicional hospitalidad de los habitantes del sur de los Estados Unidos, recibe cada año la visita de millones de turistas. Es además famosa por sus fantasmas, tanto como puede serlo Salem, en Massachusetts. Las historias paranormales se remontan en esta ciudad a sus mismos inicios, y los incidentes documentados son numerosos.
Cosas que hacer y ver en Savannah
Entre los cinco distritos históricos de la ciudad se cuentan 22 plazas, cada una asociada a un momento distinto de la historia, y a lo largo de toda la ciudad hay varias iglesias y sinagogas, además de viviendas históricas en perfecto estado de conservación. Probablemente la más famosa sea la Mercer House, principal localización de la novela “Medianoche en el jardín del bien y del mal”, convertida hoy en un museo. En el centro histórico de la ciudad se conserva un cementerio de la época colonial y a no mucha distancia del centro se encuentran varios fuertes que sirvieron para la defensa de la ciudad durante la guerra civil estadounidense. El antiguo Cotton Exchange, construido en 1887, es de obligada visita. Antiguamente era el lugar en el que se llevaban a cabo todas las transacciones comerciales del algodón sureño, y lugar de partida y llegada de esta carga; su visita, junto con el recorrido por el Historic Riverfront Park es toda una experiencia.
Especialidades culinarias en Savannah
La ciudad cuenta con restaurantes para todos los gustos y bolsillos, muchos de ellos situados en la zona de los bed and breakfast de Savannah. En cualquier caso, esta es la ciudad perfecta para degustar los típicos platos de la gastronomía sureña, como el delicioso pollo frito al estilo sureño o los tomates verdes fritos.
Eventos destacados en Savannah
El evento anual más destacado de la ciudad es la celebración el 17 de marzo del día de San Patricio, con una fiesta de carnaval (la segunda mayor del país) que puede recordar al Mardi Gras que se celebra cada año en Bourbon Street en Nueva Orleans. Los primeros sábados de cada mes se celebra el “First Saturday on the River”, una celebración familiar en la histórica River Street, con ferias de arte y artesanía a la orilla del río, el evento ideal para disfrutar en familia.
El clima en Savannah
El clima en esta ciudad es excelente durante todo el año, con veranos cálidos e inviernos con temperaturas muy tolerables. Puedes empaparte de todo lo que la ciudad tiene que ofrecer, incluido su ambiente más misterioso, alojándote en una casa rural en Savannah.
