In 2017 we had the holiday of a lifetime! Two weeks in South Carolina and Georgia.
The holiday was in celebration of a BIG birthday, so we broke the bank, and went as BIG as we could afford with flights and hotels.
Six months in the planning, there's probably not a hotel in Hilton Head, Charleston or Savannah that we've not researched on the web, or read reviews about - so as you can imagine our choices were very well considered.
Our first stop, was just for one night on arrival in Savannah. We stayed at the Cotton Sail, on the Riverfront - as the name suggests this used to be a cotton warehouse and has been sympathetically restored. We arrived late, and checked in to our room a lovely executive room - facing a brick wall(!) - we went for a meal in their restaurant starting with a drink in their rooftop bar which whilst beautifully presented on their website, was quite disappointing in reality - not a good start, but hey it was only for a night.
The next morning we set off down to Hilton Head - the main reason for our trip was to attend the PGA RBC Heritage Classic and we booked 6 nights in a condo in the centre of the island owned by Kelsey Cottages.
Oh my, it way exceeded our expectations - everything we wanted - great location a short walk from restaurants, shops and the beach, beautifully decorated, fabulous views and supplied with everything we needed for an extremely enjoyable six night stay. Update - we stayed here again the following year (2018) - just as amazing..
Hilton Head is a brand in its own right - everybody we met, without exception, was friendly and helpful stopping to chat and taking an interest - it really added to the enjoyment of our holiday.
