This bed and breakfast offers comfort, relaxation, and a spectacular view of the bay at St Augustine. The service was excellent. The complimentary breakfast each morning was outstanding and the accommodations were both charming and elegant. We really enjoyed our visit and will definitely be back.

This place is okay, but I wouldn't stay here again. My girlfriend and I stayed her in May 2014 and we were looking for something romantic and close to downtown. We got a room in the house next to the main house and the room was nice, but not worth $300 a night. We should of checked around first and... More

I opted to stay at this so called "5 star b and b" and was disappointed to say the least. The staff wants to act friendly but the minute you ask them for something and you have to remind them to get it they get mad at you. not to mention that the prices for a one night stay in... More

We stayed here for three nights for our anniversary from August 9 through 12, 2014. We stayed in the Alexandra room (#109), which has a queen bed, with a deluxe jacuzzi tub and separate shower. The room was beautiful. My wife feel in love with it the moment we saw it on their website before we booked. This was our... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Bayfront Westcott and it was well-worth the money. It has an excellent location (especially for using one of the Trolley services if you have never been to St. Augustine) with a lovely view of the bay. The staff were MORE than accomodating. If I asked for something, it was happily provided. As I... More

This was the second time staying at this impeccable B and B, in St. Augustine . With waterfront location, most rooms have some view of water. We opted for a front facing room this trip, and enjoyed the space as well as the views. Guests can also relax on one of two front porches ( upstairs or down), for breezy... More

Thank you for your wonderful review! We do wish the parking situation was easier for our guests, but being in the historic district does not allow much opportunity for change. Come visit us again soon. Cheers! More

A beautiful B & B with a staff who goes the extra mile to make you happy. Beautiful view of the waterway, horse and buggy rides, and great restaurants. The room was dceored beautifully for the area. The shopping area was second to none in an "artsey district"! Loved it!!
