“Christmas in St. Augustine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2011

After a thorough search my wife and I selected the Westcott B&B. We were not disappointed. Location is within walking distance of all major attractions. Rooms were very well furnished. Ours, the De Leon, had a massive king size bed, whirlpool bath for two, and all the expected amenities. You select the breakfast time desired (unusual but it works) and each day was different. No complaints. Sarah was our server and she was delightful. Joy our hostess was eager to help with restaurants and so forth. It was Christmas and the the B&B was beautifully decorated. See pix. Parking is a small problem. But the solution works. The Westcott has dedicated parking about four blocks away and curbside unloading spaces. They even fed the meter when necessary. Our room was quiet; front rooms might have some road noise but this part of town is quiet. The B&B fronts the water. You will not be disappointed.

We come to visit the "Old City" several times a year and this was the best place ever. The house is beautiful and the staff's service is impeccable. Can't wait to come back!
Thanks to all

The house is beautiful, the rooms are comfy and the staff is genuine and seem happy to serve. You feel like your staying at a very wealthy friends and it is the perfect place to stay in St. Augustine and while it is expensive at peak seasons it is well worth it. It is a get away for us and we will return over and over again!

Room Tip: The top attic room has become our new suprise favorite... Very cozy and romantic!!!

My wife and I have been celebrating our anniversary at the Bayfront Westcott House in Saint Augustine for 15 out of the last 16 years. We tried another nearby B&B the 2nd year and found it could not measure up to the facilities and the service at the Westcott. We came back to the Westcott House in year 3 and have stayed here every year since then. The owners are not satisfied to be a good B&B - Andrew and Joy and their entire staff continuously surpass our expectations. Rooms are meticulously maintained and exquisitely furnished. Breakfasts are above average in quality and can be eaten in the dining room or outside on the wraparound porch or courtyard overlooking the Saint Augustine Bay. The location is within easy walking distance to everthing in the historic district but is much quieter and more scenic than most of the other B&B's in the area. By coming in December every year, we can experience the lights, parades and other scheduled events in Saint Augustine's old town that create a wonderful Christmas atmosphere. Treat your loved one to a romantic stay in the best B&B in Saint Augustine - the Bayfront Westcott House.

I booked this trip as a romantic weekend getaway to see the Festival of Lights - wanted to get into the Christmas spirit. There are lots of B&Bs in St Augustine - don't bother - go to the best. Best SERVICE, best VIEW, amazing. After giving us restaurants recommendations, they even made the reservations for us! We had a beautiful room, private and the romance package. We arrived to beautiful roses and chilled champagne in our room. Room was lovely, bed VERY comfy and the softest linens. At night we could hear the horse and carriages clippety clopping down the street behind our room. Joy and her gals did everything to make this a special time. They arranged our carriage ride (very romantic), and were always there to make this special. They make you feel like family. Breakfast was yummy and social hour a real treat with Joy bringing us a plate of cheese and crackers to the porch swings on the upper front level. They truely work so hard to please each and every guest. I am counting down the months till we can return!

Room Tip: We loved Rebecca's room. To the rear of the property and had a private feel. Can hear the carr...

We will go back and go back and go back again. The highlight of our Christmas trip to St. Augustine was staying at the Bayfront Westcott for four evenings. The rooms were clean, warm, with all amenities. The breakfasts were varied and very tasteful [you were given choices each day, I have never experienced that at a B&B], location of the B&B is walkable to all attractions and restaurants, sitting on the porch and watching the ships go by was a delight. Best of all........the staff......made you feel like family. We never felt like we were imposing when asking for an item, advice, or information. No doubt, the owners and all the worker-bees enjoy what they are doing.
