The Old Castillo Inn on the Bayou Teche offers a historic ambience, lovely grounds, large rooms, comfortable beds, generous breakfasts, and warm hospitality. The building is timeworn but very clean. The breakfasts feature authentic Cajun specialties such as pain perdu (French toast), beignets, and homemade preserves but the hostess ought to offer alternative options, too, such as fresh fruit and yogurt. Some of the plastic flowers should be replaced by fresh flowers from the beautiful gardens outside.

What a charming and historic b&b. We were warmly welcomed and enjoyed the conviviality of fellow guests at the inn. The recommendation for the St. John Restaurant was spot on and the location by the Evangeline Tree was special. We appreciated the introduction each morning to regional cuisine of Cajun Country. All in all it was a lovely and restful spot.

Easy to book. Had a variety of rooms to pick from. The room we had had a very nice balcony with a view of the bayou. Our room was large and beautiful with original antiques and a very comfortable bed. The staff was awesome and accommodating. The breakfast we got with the room was a large Cajun breakfast served on our balcony. The town of st.Martinville is quaint with lots of shops and eateries. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast,,
Thank you for your kind review. We are happy your stay was enjoyable and makes a B&B stay a good one. We hope to see you again sometime.

Coming from Paris, France, my wife,I and a friend of us spent 3 nights at the Old Castillo last March. We definitely enjoyed Peggy's hospitality and appreciated her welcome in French. The rooms are comfortables and we will not forget the savor of the breakfasts she served. Definitely the place to stay when you visit the cajun country.
Thank you so much for your kind review. We too, at Old Castillo B&B enjoyed your visit. It is always our intention to make our guests feel at home and are as comfortable as can be. Again, Thank You.

My husband and I stay here over Easter weekend. Peggy is a great hostess, and the staff was wonderful. Would stay here again. As soon as you walk through the door, you expect to see Scarlett and Rett. The B&B is right next to the river, and the grounds are just great. Thank you Peggy.
Hi Thank you so much for your kind review. We also enjoyed your stay. You are the kind of guests that make our job easy and enjoyable. Hope you can visit us again sometime and also tell your friends. Again thank you for your great review!
