Peggy was such a wonderful host. We were visiting friends in the area and couldn't have picked a more charming B&B with such great history. Our friend's mother actually attended Old Castillo when it was still a school. The floorplan of the school provided in the room made it all even more interesting. Breakfast was superb and the hostess was... More

My husband and I loved our stay in the Chambre de Jardin. The king bed was super comfortable-the rest of the furnishings were surberb. Breakfast was a delight including homemade bread and cafe au lait !

We stayed here two nights while on a road trip in this area of Louisiana. I gave this an average rating for several reasons which I will mention but let me say that I would stay here again if I didn't fins something else that captured my attention more. On the plus side--the location is very good. It is right... More

Thank you for your review. I think the smell is just from it being an old building, but, we always try to keep up with it. Regarding the keys, yes, I am in the historic district, which allows for lots of visitors. That's great, but, since I'm not open for tours and I do live in the house, I like... More

House was so unique, clean, and lovely. Stayed in Gabrielle room with doors to balcony. Sheets and pillows were so soft and the blinds kept out any light. House was so quiet we didn't realize there were others there until breakfast. Food was delicious. Would highly recommend.

Thank you for your wonderful review. Our sheets and towels do get good reviews. And, happy to say, so do our breakfasts. So many times, guests will come down for breakfast and for the first time realize that we do have other guests. Wide wall, high ceilings, etc are the reason why, I guess. Makes for a nice, quiet, pleasant... More

My husband and I decided to explore Louisiana on our way to this year's New Orleans Jazz Fest. It was a wonderful road trip bumping around the country side. One of the things on our list of "things to do" was a swamp tour outside of Breaux Bridge so we needed a place to stay close by but still on... More

The house was in a lovely setting, very clean and full of history. Our room was very comfortable. We had full use of the balcony upstairs which was a great way to watch the world go by The breakfast was served personally by the owner and set us up for the day.

I read the bad reviews on this place after I had stayed here a few times, which reminded me of the axiom –– that you can't please everyone. Nonetheless, if you looking for a good night's sleep, a little culture, and some piece and quiet –– you're in for a treat. In my humble opinion, I think that this place... More

This is in a fantastic setting just by the Evangeline Oak, we could see it from our room! We were extremely fortunate to arrive Valentine's Evening and when we booked Peggy, the owner, invited us to join in the annual Valentine Social which celebrates all those who became engaged or married under the Oak.

Old Castillo is rich with history, southern Old World elegance and charm. Our room was spacious and lovely with beautiful antiques. It is an old building, of course, but our accommodations were comfortable and cozy. The history of St Martinville is beautifully incorporated in this quiet abode. Peggy, our hostess and owner, was gracious and down to earth, and completely... More

Old Castillo Bed and Breakfast is not corporate at all. No TV, no elevator, no hairdryer. The balcony overlooking Bayou Teche and the Evangeline Oak and the excellent home-cooked breakfast make it an excellent getaway. There are fun and delicious Cajun restaurants up in Breaux Bridge which is an easy evening's drive. St. Martinville has lots of history. Peggy, the... More
