First let me state this place has the best mattresses and pillows of any resort or hotel that I have ever stayed at. Place is southern charm. Exceptional service. I arrived late, quickly ordered food for my room since restaurant was closing in 15 minutes. I asked if kitchen could give my a handful of fresh mint. Hostess said kitchen... More

I simply love this place. It is beautiful, historic, and welcoming. I personally recommend going on a Jazz night, each Thursday at 7 pm. The food is great, the drinks delicious, and the ambiance the best in the area.

The staff was very courteous and helpful, the décor was stately, the meal ordered the first night was delicious but the continental breakfast with the option for a hot breakfast needs to be revisited. The hotel room was beautiful and attended to without prompting.

We did not eat at the restaurant but we did stop in at the bar a couple of nights and really enjoyed it. The bartender was very good and friendly and we met some fun people and had a good time. The bar area is small and quaint but that makes it even better more meeting new people. We did... More

There is no denying that the Willcox is an Aiken institution, perhaps even an icon; however, does it live up to its hype? Shortly after I got here, Travel + Leisure named it the best resort in the South and the 7th best hotel in the world!!! It is picturesque, definitely. And the first time I went there with Mary...

Can't say enough good things about it. The food is superb, and the service is friendly and efficient. This is a place that you can eat anything from a salad to a steak. The filet is exceptional. The fish is always done properly as is everything else. Once you have had the pate, you are hooked. A MUST!
