A Charming and Delightful Respite

4.4 on April 11, 2015

The Penny Farthing is a charming respite on a quiet, tree covered street. It was immaculately clean, the staff were very friendly and attentive and the breakfasts were wonderful. It is very conveniently located near the major St. Augustine points of interest. We stayed in The Catherine Bedchamber and the king-sized bed was plush and comfortable. It was set up a little differently than the photo on the web site and included a settee. Our only negative is that it was somewhat lacking in sufficient counter space for cosmetics, medications, etc.. However, we would definitely stay there again should we return to St. Augustine.

A Charming VIctorian in the Heart of St. Augustine

Dave made our recent stay even better than we had hoped. He went above and beyond in recommending a top restaurant for a special birthday dinner, as well as things to do in walking distance. Breakfast was quite nice, the rooms have charm and all the essentials. Nothing is rushed, we relaxed with afternoon tea or a glass of wine and enjoyed chatting and mulling about. The location is great, ample parking. We will return for sure!

Innkeeper Response
