We are driving home from our 2 night stay at this delightful property. While the house itself is lovely and was nicely furnished it was something else that would entice us to return for a future visit...the staff and the perks! The staff made us feel so welcomed with their smiles, greetings and “above and beyond” approach to us and the other guests. And the value added perks made us feel like we had the deal of the century. The breakfast was both substantial and yummy. The early evening wine reception was so much more than expected with wine and cheese but also creative hot and cold hors d’oeuvres. We enjoyed them in the parlor one night and in the beautiful courtyard the next. Dessert and coffee was not just the typical cookies but 3 types of dessert. What a wonderful place to stay on a breathtakingly beautiful street in a convenient location!Reviewed by FLnaples on March 2018 via Tripadvisor
“Experience Southern Charm and Hospitality”
The Eliza Thompson House was a random choice for our first time in Savannah, and we couldn’t have made a wiser choice. Not only is an exquisite breakfast offered, but 5-7 pm they offer a wine and cheese assortment, followed by desserts, coffee, and teas from 8-10 pm! The home oozes Southern charm, the staff are attentive, friendly, and very accommodating. Walking shoes are all you need to enjoy Savannah. The rich history, architecture, and Spanish moss transport you to another time. If you’re fascinated with ghosts, (and I am not) it has an endless supply to entice you via several different venues. From it’s cobblestone streets, to its pristine kept mansions, there is something for everyone.Reviewed by Bobbber on March 2018 via Tripadvisor
“Great place to stay steps from Forsyth. Prettiest street in Savannah. Girlfriends getaway.”
Our group of 3 girlfriends stayed here this past weekend. The location was perfect! We walked throughout the area. Forsyth Park is a 5 min (or less) walk. We didnt rent a car and took Uber/Lyft for out of the way sites like Wormsloe or Tybee. City Market and the Riverfront was a short walk. The staff took immaculate care of us. Nell, Kelly and Kevin were always around to offer helpful suggestions or to extend a hello. They were super sweet and easy to work with. The daily breakfast, cocktail hour and dessert options were obscene! We found ourselves too full from snackland to eat out very often. The social hours also gave us ample time to meet other folks staying at the BNB. The cooks and waitstaff are beyond compare in their expertise/cooking and friendliness.Reviewed by msimonkey on March 2018 via Tripadvisor
“Beautiful, Southern Charm!”
The breakfast is served by the courtyard when weather permits & an exceptionally delicious one at that! In the evening there is wine, cider, etc, & delicious hors d’oeuvres & cheese & fruit. Also there were wonderful desserts served later for guests to enjoy. Cannot recommend enough!

“Best Service in Savannah”
What a wonderful bnb hotel! My husband surprised me with a Valentines Day trip to Savannah and we had the pleasure of staying 2 wonderful days at The Eliza Thompson House. The front desk team member Kelly is amazing!!! She really assisted us with our plans for a romantic getaway. She goes above and beyond extending courtesy to all guests and provides tons of helpful tips for Savannah site seeing. The bellhop Kevin is really awesome. And Del the house manager made sure we were able to enjoy the evening perks! There is a nightly wine and hors d’oeuvres coacktail hour. I am expecting and naturally could not indulge in the wine. However, the Del and Kevin made sure I wasn’t left out and provided me with apple cider! Everyone who works here is super thoughtful and their kindness was much appreciated. The food is amazing especially the breakfast. We stayed in the Chatham Room which has private access. I totally recommend selecting that room because of the privacy and street access. This hotel is conveniently located in great part of town. Everything is walking distance even river street is less than 1 mile. There are lots of great restaurants around and fun shops to visit. Don’t miss out on an opportunity to stay at this hotel!Reviewed by Breigh M on February 2018 via Tripadvisor
“Gracious and Friendly in Wonderful Location”
Eileen915 “Gracious and Friendly in Wonderful Location” This was our first visit to Savannah and how fortunate that we chose the Eliza Thompson House for our stay. Everyone was very gracious, the food was wonderful and the ambiance was so relaxing. The courtyard was beautiful with statuary and fountains and plenty of seating but not the least bit cramped. It was like entering another time with its warm and friendly atmosphere. Bring your walking shoes. Savannah is a wonderful walking city and the Eliza Thompson House is in a great location to explore. We walked to City Market, River Street, Forsyth Park and places in between. We did not rent a car and took an Uber to and from the airport. We were fine without a vehicle and did not regret not renting one. I would recommend the Eliza Thompson House as part of anyone’s Savannah experience. The bed was very comfortable, the water was hot, people were helpful and friendly...just a great place for a relaxing getaway.Reviewed by Eileen915 on February 2018 via Tripadvisor
