John Rutledge House Inn
Historic and comfortable house in a great location
The concierge, Jim, was absolutely brilliant. He is a great front of house and a real asset to the place. The location was superb and it was great to walk everywhere in this beautiful, historical town. The history of the hotel is very interesting and tea and snacks are served between 4pm and 6pm daily which is a lovely detail as was the complimentary chilled water. Our room was really comfortable and well appointed. We just felt that some attention to detail was slightly lacking. Small points but we had breakfast on the terrace on metal chairs. No cushions offered. The table mats looked slightly grubby and the food itself was pretty basic. I mention this as you are paying the kind of rates you would pay in a top hotel and for the price we expected a really tasty breakfast and more attention to detail and service.
