This B&B is totally worth a visit. The single rooms are all designed differently and historic. The owner is super friendly and helpful. The breakfast is outstanding, the pancakes were the best ones I ever had. Enjoy a bottle of wine on the balcony next to the famous oak!

We got two spacious rooms - one with balcony - though we arrived late in the afternoon. The hostess have clearly done a lot to make the place comfortable and stylish the southern way. Breakfast is free and you can get a glass of wine and a snack if you sneak into the kitchen late at night. We even negotiated... More

The wife and I have stayed in other bed and breakfast's in the past and we were impressed with the history of the Old Castillo house, the cleanliness, and how the owner did not hover or micro-manage our stay. The room and bed was quite comfortable and served our needs nicely. The breakfast was good although a bit less in... More

Thank you for your great review. Your suggestion about fruit is a good one. We will begin to offer a few at breakfast. Only a few requests are made for this, but, it is an easy fix.

We had a very peaceful and relaxing stay. Breakfasts were among the very best we've ever had at B&B's. The town and neighborhood is very quiet and low key. The only thing noisy in the Old Castillo are the old wood floors and stairs. Our room was enormous, bed comfortable, Wi-Fi quite reasonable.

Our stay was a bit on the crazy side, things uncontrollable by the owner. First, the water had to be shut off, so we couldn't use the bathroom, and thought we might have to move to another lodging. It was fixed, but the water stayed discolored until after breakfast the next day. Not something that could be helped, we understand.... More
