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. It was a very lovely experience... More

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

Off the beaten path, but worth the drive. The Old Castillo Hotel, built in 1827, offers the charm and decor of yesterday. Miss Peggy is a wonderful host, and serves a breakfast fit for a king. Reasonable pricing offers the traveler better value than staying in a cookie-cutter hotel, and the opportunity to taste a bit of history. Saint Martiinville,... More

The owner was very nice to make arrangements to be available to check in at a later time. Upon entry to the home it appeared a little weathered on the outside, but has that old charm! The inside was nice and had some nice articles on the home, and other memorabilia. No Tv in the room. Just thought I would... More

Lovingly maintained and genuinely a part of Bayou Teche country. Huge props to Miss Peggy and her family for continuing a strong tradition of hospitality and culture. If you're sick and tired of the same old cookie cutter franchised look that is difficult to escape in America AND abroad, choose Old Castillo and a stay in St. Martin. Breakfast IS... More

Thank you for your review. Your review tells me you toured our area in the right fashion. Took time to see what our Cajun country is all about. Sometimes to bayou beeps and croaks sing me to sleep. So glad you enjoyed our breakfast. It is a full plate, but, we try to give a little taste of all. We... More

As we visited in the off season things were very quiet. Peggy is very nice and very helpful. Breakfast was hearty, homemade, and very southern. Something with some fruit a bit lighter than eggs, toast, French toast, bacon, and beignets would have been fine. The room was large, clean and furnished with antiques. The hotel is a former school. It... More

I found the Old Castillo B&B in Tripadvisor very appealing. It turned out as a on of a kind experience: since the building is very old with antique furniture, it looked like a living museum. I was the only guest that night and the lady of the house offered me to get a drink or some wine from the kitchen.... More
