Perfection

5 on July 05, 2016

My daughter booked a room here a few months ago for a girls weekend away. We had a fabulous time and were treated like royalty. The staff was always willing to assist rather it be a need in the room or assistance with our trips around town. The rooms were gorgeous! I thought this would be a perfect place for my husband get away to after a long illness to relax and feel pampered. I was absolutely right, he LOVED it. From the delicious breakfasts, the wonderful staff, to the beautiful fireworks viewed right from the front porch. They were there to help with every need, including those nighttime snacks, yum!! I cannot say enough about the Bayfront Westcott! My husband is already looking to plan our next visit!


Wonderful Service

Wonderful stay, we stayed in room 204 very nice room, extremely comfortable bed. The breakfast was delicious and so was the afternoon tea or social hour. Inn keeper Ryan was very helpful and all our needs were met. Would definitely recommend it, for the comfort and the accessibility to everything in old town. The only drawback was the partial view of the bay, it is really a partial view. But worth the money anyway.


Wonderful getaway

We totally enjoyed our stay at the Bayfront Wescott Inn! Unfortunately could only stay for one night, but will definitely be back for a longer visit the next time!! One of the best bed and breakfast Inn's that I have ever stayed at. Very much looking to returning for an extended stay.


Girls Trip

5 on April 27, 2015

We just completed a girls trip this weekend in the beautiful town of St. Augustine!! Could not have asked for a better experience!! We stayed in the Menendez Room and thoroughly enjoy our stay! The staff went above and beyond to make sure our stay was a pleasant one! The food was excellent! Didn't have anything bad to eat while we enjoyed our stay here! Zoey was on her "A" game in everything!! She welcomed us and explained things to us and always had a huge smile to give us!! Could not think of a better place to stay!! This is definitely a return place for us!!


Amazing experience

5 on April 24, 2015

I loved everything about this bed and breakfast. The location is walking distance to st George street but still far enough away that it is quiet at night. All of the staff I encountered went above and beyond to take care of my boyfriend and I. The staff I met included Joy, the owner, Lisa, and Zoe. They were all super friendly and helpful whenever needed. We ordered the breakfast in bed with mimosas for a small fee and felt so spoiled. It was totally worth the extra money and the food was delicious. They also have free drinks and appetizers on the late afternoon which was a plus. Parking was a short walk but really not far at all. No complaints at all about the room or our stay in general. We stayed in a room off of the main house and didn't hear any guests above us at all. We will defiantly be returning to the Westcott house and thank everyone who made our stay amazing :).


Wonderful !

We were fortunate to book a room at the last minute, and I do mean fortunate. Beautiful room with a view of the Bay. Within walking distance to many charming shops and restaurants. Breakfasts are fabulous, with really great choices. Also has a really nice appetizer hour in the afternoon. We enjoyed it both days of our stay. Lovey place with excellent staff. We hope to repeat our visit !


Brilliant stay on our honeymoon

5 on April 22, 2015

From the moment we arrived at the Westcott we were shown exceptional service. While waiting for the unloading "spot" to open up the innkeeper came out and met us with a reserved parking sticker so we could park close immediately and she helped us carry in our bags. We were offered more than we could have hoped and they never questioned us if we asked for something. The Westcott has some of the best employees we have ever witnessed. We are big in the service industry and we did not have a single complaint. We were never even asked our names. They knew who we were and made us feel like we really deserved to be there. The food was great every morning and the rooms always clean. We stayed in the Alexandra and it was a beautifully laid out room. Also the location is prime. We have stayed in b&bs else where in St. Augustine but the Westcott is definitely the one we will continue to stay at from this point on. Thank you to all who made our stay great!


30 Repeat Visits Says it All

Unless you require absolutely new (and boring), there is no place better to stay in St. Augustine. Gave the "4" for Onsite Dining rather than a 5 only because I am not sure breakfast-only counts as a true restaurant on site, but breakfast is always excellent. (You'll just need lunch and dinner elsewhere, but then, that's half the fun of St. Augustine.)


Great place

5 on March 18, 2015

Great views from the room we had. Awesome breakfasts. Easily within walking distance to attractions and restaurants.


Wonderful place to stay!

We loved staying here. It's close to all of historic St. Augustine. We didn't need are car to get around. Everything about this Bed & Breakfast was lovely. We found it enjoyable, loved the water views, and attention to detail.
