We were so happy to find this beautiful old b&b at the heart of St. Martinsville. Comfortable, charming room and great food in the southern, French tradition. Picture from the balcony is of the Evangeline Oak and Bayou Teche of the Longfellow poem. Excellent restaurant a short walk away.

Our stay at the Old Castillo was excellent. It is a beautifully kept home and the breakfast was delightful. Our host was very welcoming and I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this B & B to everyone who is staying in St. Martinville or passing through on a Deep South Road trip like ourselves

I stayed here for several nights for a business trip. A beautiful property and area. I found the accomodations very comfortable and relaxing. I plan to stay here on my next trip. Good restaurants and a bakery close by. Highly recommended!

Most of this review will be informational, and should not necessarily be considered negative, although it was for me. This is a very old, historical building, and, as such, cannot and should not necessarily offer all of the amenities of a newer property. I think if we had come in a warmer time of year, my review would have been... More

Thank you for your review. I am so sorry your stay was not pleasant. You cannot be comfortable if you are cold. When you commented that you were cold (at breakfast) I asked about your husband ( who was not down yet), but you said he is never cold. So I was not sure at that time if this was... More

We spent the weekend at the Old Castillo B&B for our 45th Anniversary. We had a wonderful time. Peggy is very gracious and accommodating. We have stayed here before and will certainly return. The breakfasts were outstanding and we went to a new restaurant in town that our hostess suggested. It was great also.

Old Castillo hosted my husband and I for Veteran's Day. This B&B is quaint, nestled in the heart of St. Martinville. We arrived in the evening, and had keys and instructions waiting for us. Our room was quite large, with a nice view of the garden. The town is small, and a large Catholic church is in the center of... More

We arrived later than we had said so had to ring the Innkeeper for instructions how to get in. This in itself was not a problem but, having left us the key, she had left no words of welcome, there were no tea/coffee making facilities in our room and there was no information about how we could make ourselves a...

Stayed for one night on our way to New Orleans...wish we had stayed longer. We had a large and very comfortable old room with a nice view out to the Bayou Teche. The ample home-cooked breakfast was quite good and the atmosphere at breakfast was very friendly. After breakfast, we spent a pleasant (and very moving) morning going through the... More

My friends and I stopped for two days on the way to New Orleans in St. Martinsville, and were so pleased we stayed at this lovely inn. Peggy Hulin, the proprietor and hostess, could not be more gracious and helpful. When we were going to be late for the restaurant (St. Johns---excellent by the way), she even went to it... More

We loved this place. Friendly, great food and a wonderful room. We loved the charm and interesting history of the building and the town. The frogs and cicadas sang as we sat on the bayou in the evening. It was beautiful.
