After months of working and living through the Covid 19 quarantine, I needed a break. The only place I feel safe staying is the Old Castillo Inn. Peggy has employed a super cleaning regimen for the Inn while maintaining the comforting, homey feel I always find there. Peggy is, understandably, keeping a distance, but is still on the property and is always available by phone. No one is neglected at Old Castillo B&B. I spent two nights and was the only guest. The quiet and serenity was a welcome change from the hectic life we have all been living. Most of the attractions are closed, so I spent time sight seeing in the lovely small towns. As well as St. Martinville, there is New Iberia, Jenerette, Franklin, Breaux Bridge, and so many others. If you are looking for a quiet, restful place to just take a break, head to St. Martinville and the Old Castillo Bed & Breakfast.

What a great old place in a lovely setting. It's a huge responsibility for Peggy, the owner, but she treasures it. There were colorful Valentines Day and Mardi Gras decorations, and she was glad to share stories and experiences about the inn and the area. In the morning, she'll explain each part of the lovingly prepared Cajun breakfast. We stayed in the enormous Evangeline room that was the French classroom in the former Sisters of Mercy School. It opened out onto an expansive balcony overlooking the Evangeline Oak and Bayou Teche.

Had reserved a room at this B&B in November 2004. For 150$ a night !! you get a old sinking matress that is probably older than the bed itself, squeaking every time you turn, towels not changed since the 50's, dirty carpets, paint pelling from the wall everywhere, dirty bath in particular toilet seats and a lousy breakfast to complete the picture. When we decided not too stay for a second night, owner still wanted to charge 150$ for the second night claiming a 15 days no cancellation policy!!. Do yourself a favor, stay away. In my 15 years of travelling the world, this is worst place I have stayed at.

Next day, we stayed at the Ritz Carlton in N.O for 130$ a night. Go figure!

So disappointed. This place is a dump. Don't be fooled by the photos. If you don't believe me and decide to stay here, be sure to check out the layers of dust and filth caked on the ledge above the shower in the Gabriel room. Also, the chair in that room looks like it was pulled out of someone's trash pile, the bed spread is tattered and stained. My throat was burning because of all the airwick plug ins used in an attempt to cover the stench. The bed was the most uncomfortable and squeaked loudly every time I moved. A disgusting place to stay.

So sorry you did not enjoy your stay. You are right about the bedspread. I was in the process of getting new spread and curtains, but, I guess I waited too long. Sorry. There is only one airwick in the bathroom. When I checked it was set on high. We keep it on low. Guess someone fooled with it. Again, so sorry you did not enjoy your stay.

Peggy was a wonderful host. Beautiful home with lot of history. If you like seafood, be sure to visit St John's restaurant down the street. Very best catfish I've ever eaten!! Other great attractions in the area as well. My sisters met me there & we took advantage of Veteran Day weekend special. Had a great visit here.

Old Castillo Bed and Breakfast is not corporate at all. No TV, no elevator, no hairdryer. The balcony overlooking Bayou Teche and the Evangeline Oak and the excellent home-cooked breakfast make it an excellent getaway. There are fun and delicious Cajun restaurants up in Breaux Bridge which is an easy evening's drive. St. Martinville has lots of history. Peggy, the owner, is a gracious hostess.

Excellent rooms in a beautiful old house. Myself and my fiance were a bit nervous staying here because of the two San Diego reviews, but since it was a pre-camping stay we figured it couldn't be worse than a tent in the swamp. In retrospect I think the San Diego reviews were probably a couple, and they probably fought and took it out on the establishment because nothing in their review was true. The place is very clean, very tastefully decorated, in a great location, and historically pretty fascinateing. The hostess, Peggy, was very nice, and whent out of her way to meet our needs, and at a very competative price. To top it off we sat down to a great breakfast in the morning, had a great conversation with her and the other guests, and then hit the national park for 2 days. AWESOME TRIP!!!

This building is full of history, well appointed, and we LOVED the innkeeper. Ms Peggy was a joy to meet a talk to. Her cajun accent and stories were great. Well be back!

We enjoyed our visit. It was peaceful and sitting on the porch in the late evening was wonderful. Peggy is a jewel and made us feel right at home, like visiting an aunt. Breakfast was simple, but very delicious, our plates were empty. While there we ate at St. John’s seafood restaurant and highly recommend it as well. Since we were birders, we went to Lake Martin after dinner. We were also close to Avery and Jefferson Islands too.

Thank you for your inquiry. It is about 10 minutes to New Iberia and 15 minutes to Lafayette. There are several restaurants in the area, but, in St. Martinville there is Kajun King and also St. John's Restaurant
