Weekend with "The S. C. Girls"

4.6 on January 06, 2017

Sat.Two of my friends and I met in Richmond for a Happy New Year/Birthday Party. The Fan District is an ideal location. The owners of The One Bed and Breakfast have their business down to a science, from the private entrance with passcode, to the central parlor with soft music, and the presentation of their Continental Breakfast in a variety of covered antiques dishes. All was so cozy and well planned for a delightful stay.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at The One Bed and Breakfast. Polly and Sean were very attentive to my questions and needs. The Slumber Suite is so welcoming and comfortable, lovely. And its private bath has a nice deep tub. Soft towels, crisp sheets on the bed. I slept so well. A downtown establishment, it was nevertheless quiet. A very peaceful and welcoming B&B. And it's in such a great location: it's close to everything. Looking forward to our next visit.

Perfect Getaway

Great location. We were in Richmond to see the Faberge exhibit at the VMFA. The One was in walking distance. There were many restaurants nearby also. Great place to stay.

Wonderful weekend away!

The staff was super friendly any time we ran into them, going above and beyond offering us suggestions and making sure we had everything we needed. The hosts were delightful. The neighborhood is a gem, especially if you love walking to places! We spent two nights there and already booked another visit for next year by the first night! Can't wait!

A Most Happy Place

I had a truly good stay at The One Bed and Breakfast. The owners had thought of everything that would make a guest smile, from cheerful sayings and bright colors to helpful staff. There are so many extra touches, like book lights and plentiful bed coverings for a chilly night. Plus a fan if you're warm natured and a heater if you tend to be cold. The housekeeping is excellent. If you're a tea drinker, you might want to bring your own.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for taking the time to review our property! We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay with us and we hope you will come visit again soon! I'm always happy to pass along kind words to our amazing housekeeping staff! They do a fabulous job and we're lucky to have them! Just a note to others reading this review - we do have a large variety of both coffee, decaf and teas that are available for our Keurig machine in the guest Parlor. They are displayed on a spinning display and sometimes if people don't spin it around, they miss the side that has all of the teas! :(

We had a great stay at The One Bed & Breakfast

The room and common room are beautifully appointed a real pleasure for a relaxing stay in Richmond. Polly was a gracious hostess. We enjoyed dinner and a stroll in Carytown which is just a block away. I enjoyed a morning run in the park, including mountain biking trail which is just a few blocks away. It was a wonderful place to stay for our first trip to Richmond.

The best place to stay in Richmond.

Loved our time in The One!! Will definitely stay again !!

Only place for us!

The in is close to Museums, Carytown and great restaurants like Rowland and Deco which is why we return. True, being a 100 yo + house it creaks but that is part of the ambiance. The street noise doesn't bother us and we have stayed in different rooms. While there is a lot of decor items to move around, we've never minded b/c all our needs are met in a delightful and whimsical way. The breakfast has 2 forms of protein along with healthy yogurt & fruit. During the day, the parlour is open to everyone to relax, read, have a FREE glass of wine, munchies, etc. The ONE B&B is a bargain compared to other places and unless booked, the ONLY place we'll stay!

Visiting our daughter, who recently started working in Richmond and The One was perfect. It was almost next door, but even had it been some miles away, the combo of spacious room, quiet, and comfort would recommend it. Also, we enjoyed the stocked kitchen from which we could graze, rather than the standard fixed breakfast time. will definitely stay there next time.
