We stayed here 3 years ago on our way first trip for Thanksgiving together in Jacksonville with family. It was conveniently located to walk down to the river, enjoy the historic district and catch a sighting of Forest Gump. Then a quick 2 hour drive to Jacksonville the NE t day. The rooms are gorgeous and the food is terrific!... More

The Eliza Thompson House offers a quiet location that is still convenient. The property has gracious Southern charm and polite, helpful staff. The rooms surround a lovely courtyard. It is three stories, with no elevator. The rooms have a traditional decor, with the expected modern amenities. They also offer an unusual but appreciated one - Chargeports on the bedside table....

Fantastic location and outstanding service. Kelly, the concierge, is just wonderful and the evening receptions in the parlour are a great way to meet new people and gain insight into the city's attractions.

If you want to stay in one of those inviting, renovated Savannah mansions this is your place. Wonderful wooden floors, charm, artwork, amazing location, beautiful street. There is a well appointed and welcoming lounge - large overstuffed chairs and sofas - which serves pastries at tea time, wine and cheese in the early evening. Always available for coffee/tea/hot chocolate via... More

Really enjoyed the place and the staff was too friendly. Great location as it is within 5-10 minutes of river street and market place. Location is great. Breakfast is good and enjoyed desert from 8:30-10. Feels like Savannah

I really enjoyed my stay and the staff was excellent. Once we arrived we were given recommendations for where to eat lunch as it wasn't time to check in. After we were checked in Kelly offered to book dinner reservations for us and gave us the scoop on everything going on (suck as the wine and cheese festival and the... More

Had a great stay at the Eliza Thompson House, only 2 weeks after Hurricane Matthew and all was well. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful...lovely. Rooms are a little small and dated, but that was to be expected in a residence like this. Location was very good, close to everything, and just a pedicab ride away from all of the... More

The place is just awesome, Kelly our concierge and all the staff are beyond great . No disappointment here. I would highly recommend to anyone. Would recommending walking through the squares between here and the river instead of the trolleys if at all possible.

We stayed here for three nights. The hotel is centrally located on one of the nicest streets in Savannah. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Special thanks to Kelly at the front desk who went out of her way to help us find our way around the city. Our room was not especially large (its an old... More

I rarely write reviews unless it was very bad or very good. This B & B most definitely falls into the latter category. We've travelled extensively in the USA and stayed at some very nice accommodations but I can honestly say that this may have been the best . The staff were so friendly and helpful, food was just right,... More
