"My new husband and I were married at The Gastonian. We had planned to check in on Friday and leave Sunday. We had such a wonderful stay and didn't want to leave so we stayed an extra night. We would have stayed a week if we could have.
Your accommodations were exceptional. Our room was not available on the extra night, but you moved us to "the Carriage House", which we loved too! It gave us another experience and another great memory. We loved your Carriage House so much that we plan to build try and build a small replica of it on our own land! We will keep you updated on it's progress once we start on the project.
Most importantly what made our stay so great, was the staff at the Gastonian. We would like to say that Lola was instrumental in making this work. She really felt like my wedding planner! Walter felt like our personalized Butler! He worked very hard for us! James felt like our personal chef! We came there to elope and had some misgivings about not including our family. We may have felt a little lonely had it not been for the wonderful people there helping to make our ceremony and our stay so special. There were other staff members that I can't call out by name that I know also contributed. I regret that I can't give every single person the credit they deserve. The Gastonian had to some really dedicated people working and we felt like they were all there for just us.
Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts!"
"Amazing... We have only praise for the Gastonian and Staff. Our Wedding was just PERFECT..from the Ceremony in their beautiful garden to the Champagne toast along with cake cutting... may I also say it was the best cake we had ever tasted. The Gastonian had made recommendations for local restaurants which were all out of this world superb dinning.
Prior to arriving for our wedding the Gastonian took care of making our SPECIAL Wedding Dinner arrangements at The Pink House which closed out the Perfect day. The food served by the Gastonian is wonderful it was so nice to have the choice of room service or to mingle with the other guests. All of the Staff at the Gastonian were very kind and willing to do whatever it takes to make our stay the best ever. There were a few employees that really stood out that we want to thank, Rachael and Karen for all the special attention to every detail we asked for to make our Wedding and Stay Perfect... Walter.. what can we say exceptional and AMAZING... and Sweet Sweet LaKeshia always there when you need anything.. Guy and I will be returning to the Gastonian in the near future. Anyone who is considering a small wedding or elopement I highly suggest contacting the Gastonian. I also recommend just staying at this amazing B & B.. Thank you to everyone at the Gastonian."
"WONDERFUL!!! We chose The Gastonian for our elopement, and could not be happier with our choice. I would highly recommend to anyone who is planning an elopement in Savannah. Every staff member I came in contact with made our special day one to remember. Walter & Hallie should be commended for their exceptional service and dedication to their job. They made our wedding absolutely perfect. True assets to The Gastonian. Hope their efforts don't go unoticed. The breakfast every morning was great, as well as the afternoon appetizers & wine. Only made it to dessert one night, but it was great as well. The Gastonian is very centrally located in a nice quiet neighborhood, walking distance to everything, even to the river. We are definitely going to plan a return trip to The Gastonian. Thanks for everything :-)"
"The Gastonian was the BEST place to stay for our small, intimate wedding. Everyone on the entire staff was helpful to us and all of our guests. Our family and friends all want to go back and stay there again, which is a true indication of how much they enjoyed their stay! Special thanks to Karen and Michael for making the 2 days we took over The Gastonian the best ever!"
"We reserved the Gastonian as our wedding night hotel room. It was absolutely perfect! We loved staying here as it provided the perfect atmosphere to unwind after the craziness of a wedding and it's small size ensured privacy and guaranteed that we would not run into some wedding guests the following morning. It was the most romantic place I've ever stayed - complete with a oversized jacuzzi, rose petals, and breakfast in bed! I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for somewhere private and romantic to spend the evening - wedding or otherwise!" cannot say enough good things about The Gastonian. It is a bed and breakfast that has an elopement package. The package included two nights stay with wedding night turn-down service with rose petals on the bed and chocolate covered strawberries, officiant, ceremony venue, cake, champagne toast, bouquet, and boutonniere. The staff went out of their way to make us comfortable and make our day perfect. We were originally going to have our wedding in the garden, but because of weather, we moved it inside to the parlor and I was so happy we did. It was decorated beautifully for Christmas, and really added something to our wedding. Everything they arranged for us was wonderful. The cake was simply elegant, the officiant at true southern gentleman and oh so charming, the toast was great and we got to keep the flutes. I just cannot say enough good things about The Gastonian. We will go back again."
