Stayed for 3 nights. Room was excellent. Quiet and comfortable. Food was also excellent. There was good variety in the breakfast serving. Coffee was available as early as we got up and turned the pot on. The place is located in the center of St Martinville with the church and church grounds across the street. A beautiful place to visit... More

Our experience with the Old Castillo B & B was enjoyable. The inn is very old and has a level of charm you don't often see. As noted by others, you must call Peggy in order to let you in once you arrive. There is also the responsibility of each guest to lock the door with a key should you... More

Thank you for your review. Sometimes certain things are asked of guests to make the overall experience as best as possible. Unless you know all the ins and outs of things, sometimes, some things are not understandable. The locking of the door, I think, is like most people do at home. Most front doors of residences (mine) are always locked.... More

We spent two nights at the Old Castillo whilst exploring Louisiana. We picked St Martinville as our Cajun Country base. The Old Castillo is a former hotel, which then became a Convent school and then went back to being a B&B. The house is very historic, with interesting historical pictures and plans of the house, lots of polished wood. We... More

Thank you for your review. Personal checkin is done when guest arrive at time they have requested. Sometimes when they don't come at the time they requested, I may have to do a self check in that they get instructed when they call to check in. For security reasons, we do not give out check in instructions until they have... More

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
