Charming historic property with warm personalized service. Beautiful grounds and delicious breakfast buffet. Perfect hotel for campus visits to Wake Forest. Free ice cream is a nice touch and golf carts to get around property.

Stayed in the main house and had a large, comfortable room. The staff was very friendly. Breakfast buffet was excellent. The grounds and 1930's era construction are spectacular. Great place to get away and/or celebrate something special.

Absolutely beautiful and serene grounds, very peaceful and relaxing. The staff were all courteous and prompt. Our room was spacious and clean. The only recommendation would be an additional mirror for the bedroom walls and a mini fridge.

I am glad we stayed at the Graylyn before our Grandson graduates from Wake Forest University. This place has a special beauty, southern hospitality and ambience. The entire staff was there to assure our comfortable stay. To truly enjoy the place a two day stay is recommended just so you can experience all they have to offer.

We spent our wedding night here and the room was top notch. The staff is wonderful and very attentive. My husband left a very expensive belt behind on accident and they promptly found and returned it to us. We will definitely stay here again. If you're looking for a luxury getaway this is the place!

The property is absolutely beautiful and our kids had a great time. I recommend that the hotel provide dressers in each room as we only had one tiny closet for two adults and two kids in a suite. Overall, it's a nice property.

I am so glad we found Graylyn Estate in our search for a hotel in Winston Salem. It really felt like we stepped into a scene from "Somewhere in Time." From the moment we arrived, we were met by Butler Lawrence and everything was taken care of. We were taken to our beautiful, clean room at the Mews which are...

My daughter and I stayed recently while we visited Wake Forest. The valet/butler staff were fabulous, especially Lawrence. Checkin took a bit long as they checked on our room despite a late afternoon arrival. The first floor of the hotel is beautiful, as are the grounds. Our room was on the 3rd floor under an eve. Decorated nicely, but could...
