Wentworth Mansion

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

On a scale of 1 - 10, our stay at the Wentworth Mansion was a 20!! The very spacious room had an outdoor private patio, a separate sitting room/library, a HUGE bathroom with jacuzzi tub, separate walk in shower with shower heads at each end, and large vanity area. The complimentary afternoon wine and unique fresh appetizers and the always available port, sherry or brandy along with caring wonderful staff make this a once in a lifetime awesome place to stay! The spa and its staff were also exceptional. Stay included full breakfast with delicious pastries along with your full menu selection at Circa 1886 Restaurant. And more.

Deserves its rating. Great rooms and service. A great small hotel. All the great reviews are correct. We stayed at the Belmond for 4 days and Wentworth for 3. Both were fine. If you want the feel of Charleston in your lodging this is the place. Nothing wrong with the Belmond but it is a more typical modern hotel. In my opinion the Wentworth is the place, although more expensive, for a couples Charleston vacation.

Beautiful property within walking distance of the prime shopping and dining spots in Charleston. Wonderful amenities, fantastic full service restaurant on site and the nicest most attentive staff ever! Thank you Wentworth Mansion for a wonderful stay! We'll definitely be back!!

We spent two nights in Charleston at Wentworth Mansion. It was a wonderful place. The service staff was incredibly helpful. The room was great. The surrounding spaces were enchanting. It broke my heart to leave, to be truthful. It was a truly magical place for a special celebration for my wife and I.

If you are a lover of grand old structures, then this is the place for you. It must have been quite the place in its day, however, it is in need of a little TLC today. Despite the grand rooms and the antiques, it feels a little tired. With that being said, the staff was very polite and pleasant. Included in the room price are wine and snacks in the evening and breakfast in the morning.

We visited Charleston to get married. Our stay at Wentworth was by far the best hotel stay we've EVER had ! The entire staff was friendly from start to finish. Upon arrival they upgraded our room. The room was absolutely stunning along with the hotel ! After we got married on October 2nd, the staff left a card and champagne in our room. To us, it's the little things that make a big difference. This staff makes you feel like the most important person staying at their hotel. Not only is the city beautiful, the hotel is a perfect fit to the historical beauty of Charleston ! Thank You, Wentworth Mansion for making our stay memorable as it compelled us to send in a compliment. We will definitely be back !!

We loved staying at the Wentworth with its historic appeal. The staff is impeccably trained and were ever so gracious. I felt very valued and loved the intimate feel of the mansion. The breakfast next door at Circa 1886 is a wonderful experience (top-notch food) and we loved the 3 course meal we had in the evening. Would highly recommend!!!!

I can't say enough good things about Wentworth Mansion. They called us about 2 weeks before our trip to help us schedule activities, which was very helpful. We were scheduled to arrive early our first day (noon) and they had our room ready. The day concierge, Lori, was extremely helpful with finding good restaurants. The best restaurant was their own, Circa 1886. We do a lot of fine dining, and this was the best meal we've had in years. The demi glace sauce on the beef was divine, and the Smores dessert was incredible. Wentworth Mansion is a 5 star experience all the way around. Splurge on it, you will be very glad you did!

The building is stunning, both inside and outside. It's also a large building, it doesn't feel like a house but more like a palace. Rooms are massive, decorated with gorgeous period furniture and spotless. Service was fantastically welcoming yet impeccable. The rooftop terrace great for late night drinks. The restaurant is one of the best in town. Hard to find a fault with this hotel. Perhaps the location isn't quite in the centre of things, which may be a good or bad thing depending on points of view. Best place to stay in Charleston.

If you have a multi-stop destination, make this the last leg of your trip. The service is unmatched and the accommodations are beyond first class. If you start here and continue elsewhere, every other stay will be a disappointment. If you are in the hospitality or service industry, stay here and have your staff stay here. They wrote the book on excellent service. The accommodations include a full gourmet breakfast, a pass to the local gym, beverages in the afternoon, wine with hors-d'oeuvres, and conclude with a nightcap. The mansion is a historical masterpiece and the experience is life-changing. Best views of Charleston from the cupola!
