Amazing B and B, 5 star gem

4.8 on April 08, 2013

Our first trip to Savannah. We are seasoned B & B érs, and this was the finest B & B we have had the pleasure to stay at. It was clean, comfy, right on the edge of EVERYthing, and the staff were top-shelf. We stayed in the Garden Room, and had our own entrance, our own small pond/garden/sitting area, too. Parking on site, which was great - we parked and never moved the car the entire trip. The staff were so attentive to our EVERY need, and even went beyond, with the unexpected extras that they did for us. The breakfast was outstanding - cooked to order, in front of us, every morning. The Chef was great, the banter back and forth between us, the other guests, and the Chef and wait-staff was so much fun! We would definitely recommend The Gastonian, and we would stay there again, if we travel back to Savannah. Thanks, Gastonian staff, for a great vacation!


Outstanding

4.8 on October 05, 2012

My family stayed at bed and breakfast in August.We stay in the Mary Telfair room.The room is spotless and very large.The bathroom had plenty of room if you need to shower and people using the vanity at the same time.We had a little problem with the rug in the room that gave off a chemical oder but they removed it right away. The Gastonian is a beautiful old historic home that is well kept.The breakfast to the food in the afternoon to the homemade cake and cookies at night were delicious.Drinks all day long.And the staff amazing.From Karen, to Walter is is a gem.I wanted to take him home.To the cooks in the kitchen who we got to interact with at breakfast.Plan on going back.Would not stay anywhere else in Savannah.Thank You for a memorable vacation.Will be back next year.Your friends from New Jersey.


Honeymooning in Savannah

3.6 on September 27, 2012

We stayed at the Gastonian in Savannah, GA in Sept. 2012, in the Flannery O'Connor room. The breakfasts were delicious--each evening guests are asked to choose the next morning's entree from a new menu. Generous hors d'oeuvre, wine, delicious desserts and digestifs are served in the parlor each evening. Our room had a ground-level entrance to the street, which meant that we didn't have access to the interior of the inn and, once, service all night. The bathroom was huge and luxurious, with an enormous jacuzzi tub and large shower, a number of fluffy white towels and cozy robes. We were provided with an iron and ironing board, but, oddly, no hair dryer. The other thing I'd wish I'd known is that there is no proper full-sized closet--you must hang your clothes inside the armoire next to the TV. My wedding dress was knee-length but if it had been more traditional, this would have been a problem. Overall, we would highly recommend The Gastonian, but next time we would book an interior room and bring a hair dryer.


Enjoyable

Very enjoyable. Staff, food, amenities were outstanding. Bathroom was showing its age, but thats to be expected after a 100 years. Be sure to see the bridal suite. Would definitely go back


Great place with a great staff!

5 on May 19, 2011

We stayed at The Gastonian and their sister property The Kehoe House during our vacation to Savannah and we couldn't have been more impressed! The food, the rooms, and the staff where definately the highlights for us. We stayed in the "Oglethorpe Penthouse" and all we can say is WOW! The room was the entire floor of one of the mansions (they have two mansions)! My wife's favorite part was the gardens and Karen, the concierge! It seemed as if there was NOTHING that Karen couldn't do. Need really hard to get reservations at Savannah's best restaurant? No problem for Karen! She got us right in. We met the innkeeper at breakfast and he and the breakfast chefs entertained us with stories about Savannah. It really showed that the innkeeper and his staff really love what they do and really care about us! It was nice to see a place where the employees and the boss had fun and made us feel like we were part of the family! We can't wait to go back to The Gastonian - our new "home" is Savannah!


Romance escape package

3.6 on October 12, 2010

The Gastonian was very beautiful and worth the stay. We probably would not have done the "Romance Package" again. The restaurant they booked us did not have our reservation and the turndown service was not done until we were already back to the room.


Great 3 Night Stay - We'll Be Back

4.4 on August 15, 2010

We had a wonderful 3 night stay - the property is outstanding - the food was very good and we did enjoy the afternoon hors d ouvers and the evening delicious home baked yummies! Staff was very friendly and helpful. We will be back!


We will be back!

Our experience at the Gastonian couldn't have been better. It is a wonderful place with great food and an awesome staff. We loved every minute and will be back.


Great time in Savannah!!!

5 on February 08, 2010

My wife and I had a fantastic time in Savannah. The staff at the Gastonian took care of all our requests. Wonderful restaurant recommendations, tours and interesting stories about the Inn. We simply loved it. We made friends with other guests and enjoyed the atmosphere of the afternoon snacks.


Best B&B in Savannah!!!

4.8 on February 01, 2010

We have been in Savannah many times before but this one was by far the best!!! We loved the location of the Gastonian and the service was first class. Joey had arranged for many tours and restaurants prior to our arrival. Karen and Laura were pleasant and very knowledgable about the city. It is a great team!!! The ladies in the kitchen were fun to talk to and they gave us many recipes form the Gastonian collection. Walter simply is a gem! Our housekeeper (I am sorry but I forgot her name) was charming and made sure everything was up to par! We also enjoyed meeting other guests as well the the general manager during tea time. Prior to this year we had decided to try another Inn each year while visiting Savannah - no more! We will come back to the Gastonian.
