“Best experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

The B&B is beautiful, the location could NOT be better! It is right next to Ripley's Believe it or Not and within easy walking distance of ANYTHING you could want to see, plus a trolley stop is right at the corner! Bruce was a gracious host, gave us all the information we needed, and we were even able to purchase attraction tickets through him. The breakfasts were wonderful and the room was very comfortable and charming. For less than what we would have paid for a hotel, this is definitely where we will stay on our next trip to St. Augustine!

The location is very convenient to walk downtown. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room was very quiet.

My wife and I went to St. Augustine earlier this month and had a great time. This B&B has a great location, less than a block from a trolley stop and right next to the Ripley's Museum. Bruce wa a great host. He cooked fantastic breakfast and is very attentive to our needs. The bed was comfy and the room had an old-fashioned charm. I would highly recommend this place,

This was a very, very rare opportunity for us to get away. My husband is a full-time nursing student and we have two kids, one with autism. This was only the second time in 6 years that we were able to spend the weekend away. So we were very careful about choosing somewhere we could afford on a student's budget. We were NOT disappointed. We felt like we were staying with a favorite uncle...who happens to make AWESOME pancakes and french toast. We parked our car and didn't look at it for two days. We were able to walk everywhere. Bruce sat down with us and a map and gave wonderful suggestions of things to do and see. Everything was clean and cozy. My favorite part of our room was definitely the gigantic tub to soak in after walking St. Augustine's historic district. I would definitely recommend Castle Garden to anyone and I hope we'll be able to stay there again sometime soon.

Room Tip: We were thrilled to be able to upgrade to a room with a Jacuzzi tub. It was ENORMOUS. It was aweso...

We have stayed several times now, in different rooms each time, and love it. Bruce is so helpful and accommodating and always makes our stay so wonderful. Breakfast is always delicious, too! We love the Peaches and Cream room with the whirlpool tub, and we can't wait to try out a few more rooms. The place is clean and very homey. It's by far our favorite place to stay in St. Augustine. It's within walking distance to nearly everything. Check it out...you won't be disappointed!

Saint Augustine is a hub of activity during the Christmas holiday season. After a busy day of touring, Castle Garden in the ideal B&B to rejuvenate and prepare for another day of touring. Bruce the proprietor is freindly, interesting, and customer oriented. The quiet was wonderful after 3 nights in a noisy hotel.

Our recent stay at St. Aug's Castle Garden B&B was, as the proprietor said, "like staying at Grandma's", you know, quaint with odd creaky stair and cozily stuffed with many antique furnishings.
Located on the north side of Ripley's, it's SO close to everything (without all the parking problems ... or meters !!).
Being just a few steps from the Historic FORT, it's a pleasurable 60 second stroll past the Old Cemetery and on to the north City Gate at St. George St., along with ALL else that downtown St. Aug has to offer (did I mention the ample FREE Parking ??)
After a 1st Friday Night excursion at the famed "St. Aug Artwalk", we had a peaceful slumber in a soft comforting bed and awoke to some great coffee and a multi-course breakfast being served in the dining room.
We were treated like 'family' ( the GOOD side, don't cha' know ) and DID enjoy our stay ... we would certainly stay there again.
