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

We arrived to find it unattended. Had to call a number on a board outside, not very welcoming. Hall very warm bedroom freezing. Bed old & seen much better days. Pillows reeked of perspiration. Bedspread falling apart at seams. Floor in need of a good clean and and only 1 bedside table. One of the windows was broken and had... More

So sorry you did not enjoy your stay. My front door is always locked. I live in the back part of my building. B&B is in the front part which is the historic bldg itself. So, phone is available to be able to call me as I cannot see the front door. Also, sometimes, guests are early or late from... 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.

I loved staying here. Our extremely large room opened up onto a verandah and it was just beautiful sitting out there. The hotel is steeped in history and Peggy was a great host. The breakfast was wonderful. I am a James Lee Burke fan. I had saved one of his books to read when I was in the area. I... More

Enjoyed our stay; easy to book, and really nice once you get there. Our more economical room was being painted, so we got upgraded to a bigger room with a king-size bed, which was very nice and we slept like babies. The sheets and pillows are very soft, and the place is very clean. I like the breakfast set-up of... More

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
