“Great B&B”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

Beautiful B&B on the bay. The owners are great, the breakfast and happy hour was awesome! It's in the heart of everything and you are able to walk to any historic downtown event.
The parking is a bit of a jog, but you can drop your bags at your room before you head down to parking (2 blocks away). The only complaint was if you are staying down stairs, you can hear what is happening above you... I will def stay there again, but will ensure we have a room upstairs! Other then that it is a GREAT place!!!

Room Tip: Pick a room upstairs...you can hear too much above you.

This was a first visit for my husband and myself to this lovely inn. We couldn't have had a more perfect experience! Everything was better than we thought it would be, and the owners and all the staff were friendly and accommodating to all our needs. We stayed in a wonderful room, and it was beautifully appointed, with lovely antique furniture, wood floors, and even a fireplace! The room is located in the front of the house on the second floor and we had a perfect view of the bay. We sat on the porch each day and were happy to notice dolphins swimming close to the shore!

The breakfast each morning was superb, and cooked perfectly according to our requests - and served promptly at our designated time. It was wonderful to be able to place our order in the evening and know that everything would be ready at a time and place of our choosing. We chose to eat on the porch and it was the perfect spot to enjoy the delicious food!!

We also greatly enjoyed the peppermint bark chocolates, gourmet fresh baked cookies, and evening appetizers with wine and various beer selections each day we were there.

To summarize, we had a fantastic, wonderful visit and we are already planning our next trip!! The only negative thing to report is that we had to return home and face reality and go back to work!

We stayed at the Bayfron Westcott House for 2 days to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. The staff was extremely helpful with all of our questions, and they were able to give us some great recommendations for restaurants in the area. The room was beautiful, and the breakfast was delicious! We will definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Alexandra, it was perfect!

So glad we chose the Bayfront Westcott House for our anniversary trip! We stayed four nights and just hated to leave.

I can't say enough about the divine breakfasts each morning. All of the staff that we encountered were so nice, but I sure wish I knew the name of the lovely lady that brought our breakfasts out to the side porch a couple of the mornings. She was so sweet. (She wore a long blonde braid.)

The location was great. I particularly enjoyed sitting on the upstairs front porch in the early morning and at night before bedtime. So pleasant! Even got to see the sun rise over the water - beautiful!

The evening social time was fun, too. The snacks were tasty, the drinks nice, and it was especially nice to have the opportunity to meet some of the others staying there.

The room was extra clean, the bed was very comfortable and the towels were fluffy. Who needs more?

Last, we appreciated that we could walk where we wanted to go in the historic district, but it was far enough away to be very quiet while we were on the property. We noticed the location of some other inns that seemed to be in very noisy spots in the thick of things. Very glad we didn't choose one of those!

I hope we have an opportunity to stay there again some day!

We were delighted when we read your glowing review! Thank you so much for taking the time to do that and especially for mentioning the details that made your stay with us special. We're glad you chose our Inn to celebrate your anniversary. The "lovely" lady you mention sounds like our Innkeeper, Angie, and we agree, she is very sweet. We're glad to have her as part of our team. Thanks again for the wonderful review, and we hope to see you both again soon. Cheers!

My husband and I and close friends spent another wonderful weekend inSt. Augustine, FL. For my husband and myself, this was our fifth stay at the Bayfront Westcott House. Joy and Andrew and their staff are warm and welcoming hosts. The rooms are cozy and the breakfasts delicious. Sitting on the large porch or patio overlooking the intracoastal waterway is lovely whether at sunrise, breakfast or with a glass of wine. Although we have stayed at other B&B's in St. Augustine, once we found the Bayfront Wescott, we have only stayed here. It is a truly special place.

Wow my husband and I were both blown away by the room we had, the service and the breakfast. Extras special touches made this weekend getaway so unique and wonderful. From the welcome fruit and cheese platter we ordered with Stilton cheese stuffed with dried apricots to the salmon pate with our wines during happy hour. We were so impressed. Chocolate covered strawberries delivered to our room, munching while we lounged in the jacuzzi was incredible. Our bed was so comfortable, I was in heaven. To top it off the fireplace was soo romantic and cozy.

Room Tip: The Caroline was incredible!!!

The Bayfront Westcott Inn Bed and Breakfast is an excellent choice for lodging in St.Augustine. They provided remarkable service for guests in our wedding group. People gave many compliments on the location, cleanliness of the rooms, delicious food and friendly staff. There are a lot of amenities to enjoy at the Westcott and we would highly recommend them to everyone!
