“Southern Charm that is usually forgotten.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2008

We stayed out the Houndslake during a soccer tournament. The staff was friendly and most accomidating. The word "No" was never mentioned for anything we asked for. Definately a pleasant expierence and when we come back to defend our title (again!), we will for sure book our accomidations here.

The Guest House is very comfortable with nice touches and well positioned for leisure and eating. Just a little bit different from the run of the mill hotel. Reception staff are exceptionally friendly.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2008

We spent two nights in Aiken, SC visiting friends. Had originally booked a chain hotel but our friends strongly recommended staying at The Guest House at Houndslake. We thought it would be too pricey being part of a golf resort/club (and we don't play golf) but were pleasantly surprised to find that it was actually $5 less than the chain hotel would have been per night!

The hotel has true older southern charm. We had a room on the second floor with a view of the golf course, viewed through wonderfully large windows in the room. We had two double beds, love seat, chair and table and chairs along with a desk. Very pretty drapes matched the bedskirts - this type of detail added a lot to the refined atmosphere here. The room was incredibly clean - probably the cleanest hotel room I have ever stayed in. They must have an incredible housekeeping staff. The hotel seems older and has that feel but it is in a very classy way. This was absolutely the quietest hotel at night that we've ever stayed at . When I woke up at night I couldn't believe the silence, you had to wonder for a minute where you were.

They do include a continental breakfast (coffee cake, toast, bagels, some fruite and some yogurt). Coffee pots are in each room plus coffee seemed to always be available by the front desk. You can eat breakfast "at the club" but you would need to be properly dressed (no jeans). We enjoyed bringing our "included" breakfast up to our room and just enjoying the room. They also had a basket of cookies at the front desk each night for their guests to help themselves to.

I would highly recommend this place - it almost had the feel to it that it was out of an old movie, but in a really really good way.

  • Liked — Room was quiet at night, beds comfortable and the sheets were very soft!
