“A Superb Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

The Bayfront Wescott House is above and beyond what a B&B should be. The location is central to all you want to see in St Augustine. The breakfast is outstanding with a choice of a freshly prepared special of the day as well as eggs etc. any way you want. The rooms are excellent with lovely antiques and very comfortable mattresses. The attention to detail in the amenities and service is top notch with wine and cheese at cocktail time and cookies throughout the day and evening. The staff are superb and the owners terrific. One of the staff even helped me fix a cell phone problem - now that's service! I would challenge anyone to find a better B&B in any place.

Have stayed in many B&B's and the Westcott House, by far, has been the best. No amenity has been overlooked and the whole experience was inviting, charming, and all with very comfortable beds! The perfect location from which to enjoy and access St. Augustine. Breakfast is a true delight ; what you want and when you want it! The staff and owners are first rate in terms of being professional, friendly and truly hospitable.

Room Tip: There's not a bad room but you may want to request the main house for the most charm.

I hate to let the secret out, but must share this amazing inn with you. Everything is top notch, from the rooms, to the breakfast (save room for French toast), to the service, to the location. This is a perfect weekend getaway for romance and to explore a great city. It's worth every penny. I can't say enough. I've already said too much.

Room Tip: You can't go wrong, all the rooms are wonderful.

I have several requirements of a great bed and breakfast. First is a comfy bed and linens, with more than one pillow per person. The bed slept great and the pillows were fluffy and just right. Breakfast shouldn't be eggs and toast but a gourmet dining experience where one feels spoiled. Bayfront Westcott house made us feel like a kid in grandma's kitchen. Peace and quite is my last request, which was met perfectly. One does here the clopping of the horse or an occasional passerby but the night hours are quiet and restful. The bed and breakfast is removed from the noise but an easy one block walk to restaurants. We walked everywhere, even to the fort on foot, didn't use the trolley once. The massage was wonderful and the carriage ride at Christmas time a memory for a lifetime. The staff was helpful but not intrusive. We can't wait for a return visit to a professionally run, hospitable, relaxing Oasis. Thanks Bayfront Wescott House staff!

Room Tip: We stayed in Abigal's room. It was romantic and quite. The lavender was a nice relaxing shade of...

Beautiful, charming and cozy B&B with amazing, sweet and helpful staff always trying to make you feel special. The rooms are gorgeous with antique furniture, quiet and relaxing. Breakfast was just incredible and comforting. It is located just a short stroll along the bayside from the town main square. restaurants and shops are all within walking distance. We stayed 3 days and never used our car. It is a perfect way to experience the oldest city in Florida. I highly recommend it!

Arrived a little early and we got in our room on time and was treated woderful.
Melissa (my daughter loves to stay at b@b ) we have been to quite a few and by far this was the best. I was upset that it rained the first day we got there,but we had a nice fire place and a good Mother and Daughter visit.
That night we got to go see the light's and they were beautiful.
The next morning our breakfast was so good and the people are so nice and help you with every thing.
THANK YOU FOR A CLEAN PLACE THAT IS KEPT UP AND VERY GOOD SERVICE.

Arrived last night to the warmest welcome from Joy. She showed the available rooms but the first room, Catherine was love at first sight. I'd recommend this place 100%, the attention to detail is exemplary. Make time to enjoy the evening drinks and snacks in addition to the delicious cookies and breakfast. My only criticism was the walls being slightly thin could hear the guests of first floor talking and walking (stomping) around from 5.30am but that is perhaps their lack of consideration not the hosts!
Ultimately I can't wait for an excuse to return'

Loved the title of your review :) We agree- one night is definitely not enough! There is so much to see and do in this lovely little town of ours. But we're so glad you chose Westcott House, even if only for a night. Thank you for your kind compliments on Catherine's room, our refreshments, and breakfast, we're glad you enjoyed them. Sorry you could hear other guests, that's usually not a problem. We're glad it hasn't deterred you from wanting to return, and we look forward to getting to know you better. Cheers!
