Palmer Bed and Breakfast review - Awesome!!

5 on April 17, 2014

This was our first experience at the Palmer B&B, and it was great! The service was great, and we felt welcome from the moment we arrived. The rooms were clean, and made you feel at home! The breakfast was also magnificent. I will definitely be coming back!

Southern Hospitality....

4.6 on April 01, 2014

The Palmer Home was my first experience at a Bed & Breakfast. We had a party of five lovely ladies and three of us stayed in the Carriage House, the other two in the main home. key details: Hospitality, galore! Great Southern Breakfast, fine job you guys!!! Lovely Anitques! Wonderful location! Sweet and helpful staff! The fun scheduled wine service at the ready, while thinking of the evenings plans, with little snacks! The Views! The History of the Home and Family! Nice special touches, like the selection of teas available and cookies, wonderful bunt cakes and nut bread I found waiting on the dinning room table when it was late and just needed a little taste or a cup of calming tea. Loved my stay with you all. Thanks for making our gathering of friends feel so welcomed! I can say we had so much fun just staying in one night with the other guests.

Great Stay

The location along The Battery was great, the Magnolia Suite was great, and the hospitality was great. My wife and I really enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider coming back again in the future.

Amazing place!

Everything here was excellent - the room, views, grounds, breakfast, location. Could not have picked a better place to stay in Charleston.

We stayed for a weekend in early March in the club room right by the pool, and had such a wonderful stay. All the staff were very helpful! Joyce was particularly wonderful and accomodating!
