Guest Testimonials

''I've stayed at a lot of nice hotels and this was hands down one of the best! From the moment we arrived to when we left we were treated like royalty. The staff and facilities are world class. Truly a gem! We will be back for sure.''


''Compares well with any place we have stayed, including the best in England and Scotland.''


''We have stayed at the Graylyn three times and each visit has been absolutely wonderful. I have never experienced such kind and yet professional service in such a beautiful setting. My husband and I feel the Graylyn is a perfect retreat''


''Oh My GOSH!! We just returned home from our visit to Graylyn and I am still on cloud 9! We came to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary, and it was not only so beautiful, but we will have fond memories of our stay. The room was gorgeous. Our evening meal was phenomenal - we were out on the porch by ourselves, very romantic and we felt and were treated like royalty. We cannot wait to return for another visit. It was such a wonderful, special weekend that neither my husband nor I will forget, ever!''


''We loved our room in Bernard Cottage and the ice cream snacks. The Living and Learning Package is a great deal and we look forward to returning in the future.''


''Graylyn is the most lovely and unique resort we have ever visited, and that includes the Jekyll Island Club Hotel and the Sanctuary at Kiawah. It was just beautiful. We couldn't be happier with the rooms we had at the Manor and the graciousness of the staff. Thank you.''


''Everything was first class, the staff, food, room, grounds, service, friendliness - everything.''


''I'm sorry that I failed to look at name tags, but I really don't think that it matters because all of the staff I came in contact with were all very welcoming and helpful. Disney in Orlando has a very similar philosophy or maybe training program. All of them were pleasant and helpful. Graylyn was certainly in that league.I really enjoyed my stay and I am really considering returning to you establishment for personal reasons rather for the conference I attended.''


''The food was outstanding, so compliments to the chef!''


''The ladies who kept our breaks supplied were fabulous. They made us believe that this was the only place they wanted to be!''


''Wow! Everyone was so helpful and courteous. Such a great experience. Breakfast was incredible and the bacon was amazing. Don't change anything.''


''The service and sincerity of your staff is truly amazing! From the time we drive up to the front to check in to the time we check out, everyone makes you feel as if they are there just to make sure your every need is met. The doormen, the checkin/checkout staff, the woman who cleans the rooms, the waitresses, the driver of the golf cart to escort you to your room all connect in a way that we have never seen before in any place in the world we have stayed.''


''This was one of the best experiences we have had staying at Graylyn. We brought friends that loved the hotel. The breakfast was terrific. We liked having the buffet in the sun room so you could still sit in the living room by the fire in the morning and have coffee. Everyone was more than accommodating. Thank you''


''Everyone we talked to was extremely professional and helpful. Well done. A special notice for the valets parking and retrieving our car every day. Best car service we've ever had.''


''I cannot overstate how impressed I am with everything about the Graylyn experience. I travel a lot and have been to a lot of fine inns worldwide and none have surpassed Graylyn in any regard---most cannot match it. Your staff has such obvious pride in Graylyn that it is infectious. EVERY person I encountered on staff was absolutely an ambassador for Graylyn and performed their tasks joyfully with grace.''


''WE love the history of the Graylyn and it is our favorite getaway in N.C. In fact, we plan to come back for my 50th birthday and have dinner in the Persian Card Room.''


''We loved our experience at Graylyn. It was a lovely break from a routine trip to stay on such beautiful grounds and be treated like royalty. We felt like we took a step back into history for one day. It was peaceful, leisurely, and luxurious to walk/ jog the grounds in the morning then be greeted by your wonderful staff for a relaxing and delicious breakfast while enjoying incredible scenery from the morning room.''


''The kindness and attentiveness of the staff at the Grayln was first class! It was also a delight to meet the chef each morning at breakfast.''


''Kudos to the grounds crew. Everything looks beautiful.''
