Disappointing experience

1.6 on February 05, 2018

I expected a quaint home with good service. The place is run down and barely clean. We were met by a very nice lady who gave us our key and then left us alone. She informed us that breakfast would be a 8:30 the next morning. There was one bottle of water provided for two guests. The next morning we went to the dining room at 8:30 and were met with a man who offered us the choice of scrambled eggs or French toast for breakfast. We both felt sick the rest of the day from eating the three pieces of toast prepared for the two of us. The coffee was undrinkable. This was not an inexpensive stay--but cost what a upper end hotel would have cost.

Great Experience

We spent a few days at Castle Garden for our honeymoon and had a wonderful time. Bruce was great, as were his pancakes. He was very accommodating and always ready to suggest spots around town. Additionally, the location is EXCELLENT. Just far enough from the bustle of the Old City, but close enough that anyone can walk to various sites, including but not limited to, The Fort. We had an lovely time.

Very much worth the while

Not only is this a great deal in a B&B, but it has everything a good B&B should have. Bruce and his partner were very warm and welcoming from the absolute start. The accommodations felt cozy and romantic, just as we expected it. There's a nice seating area downstairs for relaxing between jaunts out to town, and the central air conditioning works perfectly (a real plus in Florida). Bruce makes a REAL mean plate of pancakes, and he customizes each breakfast depending on the group at the table or the day of the week. You REALLY need to try this place. It's sincerely awesome!

What a cool St. Augustine experience

Really enjoyed our stay here. Very quaint with an old St. Augustine feel. The pancakes and French toast were awesome. Bruce was a very attentive and accommodating host. Our first room was a little warmer than we wanted so he gladly moved us to a cooler one.

Great little getaway

My husband and I stayed here over a kid-free weekend and had a blast! This is a true bed and breakfast which was exactly what we were looking for. It offered the old world charm of St. Augustine which came with amazing hospitality. Bruce was so kind and welcoming! Not to mention he makes an amazing breakfast! Also, it is located right behind Ripley's and offers a great location for walking anywhere. We would definitely stay there again. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

Home away from home. Great Location & Service included.

Bruce is the best!! This was our first Bed & Breakfast experience. We will definitely do it again. I booked with about four hours notice. Poor Bruce scrambled to get the rooms ready for us. To top it off we brought our brats. I'm sure this is every Bed and Breakfast owners nightmare. Bruce was so accommodating, even when my daughter accidentally locked us out of our room at midnight. Location is awesome, we walked to the historic area. Breakfast... Lets just say.. we would probably make the trip back just for the pancakes alone. The only negative is that I got hear how horrible mine were in comparison all the way home. Thanks for everything! We will probably plan a trip back with my parents.

Staff is great!

Stay at the Castle Garden B&B

5 on February 21, 2016

My girlfriend and I decided to take a weekend getaway in Saint Augustine this weekend. We decided to stay at the Castle Garden B&B and I'm extremely happy that we did. Bruce was extraordinary from the start. He catered to our every need. The rooms were exactly what my girlfriend and I wanted, which was a historical B&B that was one block away from the historic district. It is in walking distance to literally everything you would want to do in Historic Saint Augustine. The B&B is quiet and gives you the at home type of feeling. Also breakfast was great. If you have the opportunity to stay at Castle Garden, do it!!!

Quaint with great location

My husband and I took a last minute anniversary getaway and found this gem. What a great location!! We didn't have to drive our vehicle at all to experience the town. The Inn was so cute and kept with the historical theme you would expect with the extensive history St. Augustine has. Bruce was an excellent host and we enjoyed his company very much over breakfast.

Would definitely recommend!! Bruce was fantastic and you are close enough to Old Town to walk but far enough to enjoy the quiet...
