I have to say the breakfast was really bad and...cold. We were not giving any choice in what we had. The room were not clean enough and bed was really old and it creaked every time you move. I will never come back to this B&B.

we felt like we could stay forever. Flawless. Location and purity of character was perfect. Although i have been in the area for a long time, it opened up new aspects of the culture and region with one short weekend stay.

My wife and I recently spent 2 nights. I wish we were able to spend more nights. The room, bed, and breakfast was great. Peggy made us breakfast each morning and the food was local dishes. We went to Louisiana to relax and have a nice quiet place to come back to in the evening. The Old Castillo Bed &... More

This bed and breakfast is in a historic property and we enjoyed that aspect of it. It is along the Bayou Teche and next to the Evangeline Oak park. Both are very nice for lingering along. The bed and breakfast also has a long porch that overlooks the park. We sat on the porch late in the evening and enjoyed... More

This is a place for history buffs. First off keep in mind this place is almost 200 years old. My wife and I loved it, creaky floors, and all. Bed was also old and creaky,but a comfortable mattress. Not for someone used to the high life, and probably not good for kids. Only one t.v. in the sitting area. Lots... More

My classmates and went to school there till we graduated in 1958. Every year for the past 7-8 yrs we have a "sleepover" there. Peggy does fantastic job of meeting our needs. The bldg is old and historic but adds to the character of the hotel. No complaints whatever. Thank you.

So disappointed. This place is a dump. Don't be fooled by the photos. If you don't believe me and decide to stay here, be sure to check out the layers of dust and filth caked on the ledge above the shower in the Gabriel room. Also, the chair in that room looks like it was pulled out of someone's trash... More

So sorry you did not enjoy your stay. You are right about the bedspread. I was in the process of getting new spread and curtains, but, I guess I waited too long. Sorry. There is only one airwick in the bathroom. When I checked it was set on high. We keep it on low. Guess someone fooled with it. Again,... More

Imagine my delight when I realized that the beautiful oak tree just outside our window is "the tree" from Longfellow's poem Evangeline! Our room was nicely appointed and comfortable. The upstairs veranda, accessible to all, is perfect for a sunset wine. Betty's breakfast was as promised .... wonderful.
