My family enjoyed the hospitality of Mr. and Mrs. Read in their lovely 18th century home. Our hosts were so gracious and made us feel most welcome in their home. We had a beautiful room on the 3rd floor with a piazza facing the Charleston harbor. Each night we sat outside enjoying a beautiful breeze. The room was immaculate and decorated beautifully. Mrs. Read prepared a lovely breakfast each morning in her elegant dining room on beautiful china and silver. We can't say enough about how nice our stay was with the Reads and will stay with them again if we find ourselves back in Charleston.

We stayed at the Thomas Lamboll House on Memorial Day Weekend 2012 and had a wonderful time in Charleston! It's location was perfect for a beautiful walk on the Battery or a nice walk to downtown shops and restaurants. I really got a feeling of what Charleston was all about by staying here. A large room with a piazza made me feel like I lived here. Truely the best way to stay in Charleston. Thank you to the Read's!

We had a wonderful visit, the Innkeepers were friendly and helpful, gave us a tour of the house and some interesting history facts about it. We had a lovely breakfast and were treated very graciously! Our room was beautiful, neat and clean however; we do understand that these older homes have their problems, but the plumbing needs attention, the toilet did not flush well and was not pleasant to deal with!

The house was built in 1735. I found it in good condition for a house of that age. We enjoyed our visit and the hosts of the home.
