“Second to None Bed and Breakfast Experience!!!”

5 on July 18, 2015

For anyone wanting to experience the quality of a Bed and Breakfast (B&B) at its best in Savannah, the Olde Savannah Inn provides it all. My husband and I decided to celebrate our 27th Anniversary at a B&B. We spent three nights and three days at the Olde Savannah Inn, which was built in the late 1800s. This elaborate yet quaint B&B is located in the historical district of Savannah and is near many of the key historical sites in the city. Kathleen, the Owner, Inn Keeper and Hostess of the Olde Savannah Inn truly made our anniversary and stay one to remember!!! Our room, “The Provence” Room, was simply beautiful and it provided a true touch of southern comfort. We would not change anything about it. Our day started with a formal breakfast in the dinner room set for four couples. The dinning room setting was set with crystal chandeliers, grand piano, candles and fine china. Breakfast was personally made and served by Kathleen. We can truly say that every breakfast was at a 5 Star level and Kathleen’s special Belgium Waffle recipe and home made whip topping was a memorable treat and a highpoint of conversation for all of the guests. To close out our evenings, freshly bake deserts with the option of coffee, tea or wine were waiting for you upon your return to the room. If anyone is planning a stay in Savannah that is looking for outstanding B&B experience, “The Olde Savannah Inn” will provide a personal touch of class and a historical living adventure. Kathleen and Mr. Cooper (B&B Beagle mascot) truly makes the B&B experience second to none and one that we look forward to doing again in the Olde Savannah Inn when we return to Savannah. Stayed July 2015


Perfectly Savannah

4.8 on April 20, 2015

My wife Nancy and I have stayed at Inn's all over the country, including Savannah. When I booked this trip, I wanted an Inn that was not only 5 star, there are many that make that claim, but also an Inn that had a personal touch. I visited Kathleen's website and it looked to be exactly what we were looking for. The Olde Savannah Inn did not disappoint. Kathleen has really captured the "Southern" charm. From the beautiful flowers and gardens outside to the exquisite decor of the interior, you immediately feel like you're home. Every day of our 4 day stay she made us feel special...exactly what I was looking for. I'm sure every review will rave of her excellent breakfasts because they are second to none! We stayed in one of the rooms on the lower level with no windows and never slept better. One morning my wife had to wake me up for 10:00 breakfast or I would have slept right through it! The best meal we had on our entire trip (Savannah, HH, and Charleston), Kathleen recommended and made the reservations for us at Elizabeth's. Don't miss the opportunity to dine there! Every afternoon we enjoyed a glass of wine on the rockers on the deck overlooking the rear garden. We spent $90 on the garden walk and had nicer flowers and gardens at the Inn. In summary; excellent decor, excellent food, excellent service, and you'll leave having a new friend. Thanks for everything Kathleen and see you next year.


Absolutely Love It!

5 on January 02, 2015

My wife and I stayed at the Inn for our honeymoon in December. We absolutely loved it. The atmosphere was quiet and relaxed. It was evident that Kathleen was very passionate about owning a bed and breakfast and tried her best to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Upon arrival we were welcomed with evening snacks. The next two days we were there, we looked forward to these evening snacks, as they were always delectable home-made treats. We stayed in the Provence room and were not disappointed. The room was quite cozy; the perfect size for the two of us. There was a fireplace beside the bed that was wonderful for the chilly, rainy nights that we experienced while in Savannah. The Inn is in the heart of the historic district. All of the amenities were top-notch. Our favorite things about the Inn were the amazing breakfasts and the loveable Mr. Cooper (Kathleen's loaf of a Beagle). We will definitely be staying here again the next time we are in Savannah


Very Disappointing Experience!

2.0 on December 31, 2014

Kathleen told us upon arrival the inn had been on the market for 2 years. Much deferred maintenance needs to be done. Direct TV had no signal both nights. Found same bath towels used previous night hanging on bathroom door. Questioned our request for a roll of toilet tissue. Slippers provided appear to have been used by other guests. Single serving of dessert provided upon arrival for a couple? She is very unhappy in her situation, however this should not be imposed upon guests. Made a guest feel uncomfortable in the presence of others because she was not counted upon to appear for breakfast. Today, she told remaining guests they would have no room service because she had 2 doctor's appointments. Told us she might have to discontinue serving breakfast in the near future for economic reasons. Have stayed at other B&B's. Never had this experience. Unable to recommend Old Savannah Inn to anyone. Our 1st Anniversary was a major disappointment.

Innkeeper Response
I greet my guests with a warm hug and settle them to their rooms. The property is for sale like most in Savannah. Due to economic situations, we have had to make cuts. Still serve a plentiful breakfast and a dessert daily. Wine and port are always available. I worked 2 hrs to fix their TV. Missed My doctor's appt. I hang towels as I am preserve our natural resources. I have gone green with all the other inns and hotels. I provide fresh towels to those guest who want them. This guest didn't request fresh towels. At room service, I provided a brand new roll, an hour later requested another roll, only an hour after service. Excessive use of toilet tissue for only 1 night (3 double rolls) Not good for plumbing. I serve more than 1 slice of bacon and a sausage. Read all the positive reviews. I had a guest who cancelled breakfast and changed her mind. I did the best I could on such short notice. I believe this guest wouldn't be happy no matter what I did. I apologize for the oversight with the slippers. I will never let that happen again. I hope this guest will be happy in another inn in Savannah. There are some people you will never make happy. I try my best with all my guests but sometimes it is challenging. I encourage you to read my 5-star reviews throught the intenet.


Honey, I Found Home!

5 on October 19, 2014

Absolutely the best stay imaginable. I could go on and on about our stay here but it's to early in the day to kick my feet up in front of the fireplace with my glass of wine just yet. Needless to say The Old Savannah Inn was that place where when your reading a really good book you just can not put it down! Savannah is truly breathtaking but without the right place to stay it just does not make for a wonderful picture perfect ending. My visit was truly that scene you only see in the movies. I never knew that would actually be possible. Kathleen runs this place all by her self and I do not know how she pulls it off! She has got to be the real life Wonder Woman but will not ever reveal this. Probably a good thing though because then her secret to life would no longer work. I will definitely be back God willing but next time I'm staying for a month! Ok a week but it sounded nice. Kudos to this women and her really cute friend Cooper x's 10!!! - Christina & Haley


My wife said it was her best birthday ever

Home Away from Home

5 on August 31, 2014

"Home is where the heart is." There couldn't be more heart at The Olde Savannah Inn and I couldn't have felt more at home. Before I even reached the front gate, I was warmly greeted by Kathleen, her bright smile and down-to-earth energy – the perfect elixir for a long drive and stressful life back home. My load was immediately lightened as my bag was swept away and I was guided through a front courtyard filled with the sounds of cascading water. My room, the luxurious Provence room, overlooked this charming garden space. A tour of my retreat and the upstairs living space ended with a glass of wine, homemade peach cobbler and a delightful conversation with Kathleen. Breakfast was an experience I will always remember – exquisite, yet comfortable, with an intimate energy. Kathleen's undeniable passion for pampering her guests with food, ambiance, design and great conversation started each day in such a magical way. The room was filled with laughter, engaging conversation and a brightness that lasted the whole day. Never have I enjoyed such a wonderful meal at a B&B where the guests felt so at home and immediately connected. I left with new friends, a warm heart and rejuvenated spirit.


Let me pamper you...

5 on August 11, 2014

"Let me pamper you," were the words Kathleen said to my husband and I during our amazing stay at this lovely inn. And pamper us she did! From the wine offered on arrival, to the bottles of water to take on our walks through Savannah in the heat of July, to the tasty sweets left by our bedside in the evenings, even the plush bathrobes and cozy slippers... no detail has been overlooked by Kathleen. If you need anything, she is there for you, from recommendations to reservations. Also, the home is absolutely gorgeous and breakfast is a dream come true. Delicious! Kathleen does a wonderful job with making your stay memorable. We will return!


Our First B&B...sold!

5 on July 12, 2014

My wife and I walked up the staircase and were welcomed by an aged wooden door, the kind of age that places the Inn in its historic venue and values the nostalgic. Upon entering the Inn, surprisingly, we were greeted by an actual, "Welcome to Savannah...Hi, I'm Kathleen..." and a cordial conversation ensued. She took time to make us feel at home, asked questions about our travel, and offered complimentary glasses of wine before we went out to dinner. The breakfasts at the Inn were great! The mornings the Inn served blueberry pancakes & Eggs Benedict were some of the best breakfasts I’ve ever enjoyed. The Coffee is French press for breakfast. We also had the best conversations at the breakfast table with the Inn Keeper and other guests. The Inn is also occupied by Mr. Cooper, the resident beagle. This dog is very well behaved, does not smell and is very friendly. We hardly noticed he was even there actually. If you're not allergic to dogs, and not turned off by knowing a dog lives here, you could literally stay here and never have to deal with Mr. Cooper...he's that discrete. We stayed in the Bellevue, "the coldest room in the house" and appreciated the AC after spending much of our stay walking around Savannah. The bed was very comfortable and the sheets better than what we use at home. The rooms are decorated with antique furniture that is classical in taste and thematic for the rooms. The parking is tight, but this is to be expected in a historic city not built for modern vehicles, but we had no issue moving the car on the day we went to Tybee Island. Overall, this is an excellent Inn that contains a wonderful irony. We visited Savannah for the first time, greeted by a Bostonian Inn Keeper who showed us Southern Hospitality, in a city founded by British colonialists, whose Boston Tea party began a revolution. The enigmas run deep I suppose. Visit Kathleen for a taste of the olde South, southern hospitality and an Inn committed to detail.


Reminiscent of the old cultured south

5 on June 22, 2014

Wonderful location - could walk to everything - restaurants, sites, river front. It was great to just park the car and enter the aura of the past. Kathleen was a great source of information on what to see given that we were there only one day - felt like we got the most out of our time in Savannah. Home is just so full of careful attention to detail and a very luxurious feel to all the rooms. Garden patios were relaxing and cooling with more than one fountain to enjoy. Kathleen had a glass of wine and ice cold water ready to greet me after a long day of sightseeing. Breakfast was lovely - coffee from coffee press, fresh fruit and homemade whipped cream on fresh blueberry pancakes. Kathleen made sure that everyone had plenty to eat. I especially appreciated that she had coffee ready for me when I woke up - very lovely touch from a special lady. Definitely would recommend and will stay with Kathleen again if we visit Savannah.
