This was our first trip to St Augustine and we really enjoyed it. The Inn was very nice. The hosts very helpful, breakfasts were awesome.. Room very nice. We were in the Memories room, liked it all. Upon arrival he sat with us and explained the area, where good restaurants were, etc... very nice.

We have stayed in various places in St Augustine and do like to mix it up, we even have our own beach condo. On this long weekend we stayed in the Memories Room. Very good sized room and the bed was really comfortable. The owners are great, very welcoming and we enjoyed chatting with them every morning over breakfast. And with the other guests too! Breakfasts were lovely, never ending coffee and juice. My favorite was the muffins, especially with the glaze! The location can't be beaten, walking distance to everything as right in the heart of the old town. Will definitely be returning!

Absolutely love this B&B and it's innkeepers!Staying here is like stepping into a tale as old as time.... We spend one night in the Queen Ann Room and had a truly unforgettable experience! I recommend this room to all of those looking for romance ... Its like sleeping in Mr. Darcy's house!
The attention to detail is incredible and just so beautiful! You will not regret staying here.. Unless you are scared of ghosts! We definitely had that six sense experience here!
If you are planning on visiting our nations oldest city, you have to stay here - the old powder house will take you back in time!!!

We spent a weekend at the Old Powder House Inn for a wedding and had a nice time. It was a terrific location as the wedding was in the historic district. The innkeeper is very friendly and gave us wonderful recommendations for food and entertainment during our limited stay. They serve a wonderful breakfast in their dining room. It would be nice to have a little more space between tables as it was a tight fit with five couples all eating at the same time. But, we did get to meet some friendly people in those circumstances. My only real complaint was how the staff responded to a need we had to have our last breakfast outside of the community area. My husband had been stricken with a horrible stomach virus overnight and needed to eat. I didn't believe he should be in the tight breakfast area with other people. However, the staff informed us that no food could be taken into the rooms- inn policy. We ended up negotiating our way into eating breakfast on a chilly morning on the porch. The owners were not there and I think the staff felt unable to make special arrangements.

Our stay at the Old Powder House Inn with Bob and Suzanne was amazing. The breakfast was delicious and our room was beautiful. We stayed in the Splendid Time and we LOVED having the exterior door to come and go as we pleased. There was also snacks and drinks 24HRS a day. The location is perfect, just a 2 minute walk to St. George Street and close to everything. We loved it.

This was our first stay in a B&B and it far exceeded our expectations. The innkeepers were friendly, our room was absolutely spotless, the bed was comfortable and the breakfast was excellent! We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to going back!

We've stayed I many B&Bs over the years, and this one is definitely a winner and a keeper!
We're already trying to decide when we can make a return visit. Bob and Suzanne, the new owners as of August 2013, are absolutely delightful. They made us feel like we were old friends from the first time we met.
Location, location, location....in the Historic District within easy walking distance of all of the historic attractions, restaurants and bars with music, and more. The inn was decorated for Christmas in a traditional style using untraditional colors of turquoise, pink and purple along with white lights and silver for sparkle. It was beautiful and fun!
Breakfast is prepared and served with care. They even ask if there are any special dietary accommodations...how thoughtful. Oh, yes, and there was a delicious complimentary sherry in our room; and in the parlor always wine, sherry, coffee, and more. Our room was lovely and beautifully appointed; it even included a Jacuzzi tub, which we enjoyed after a full day and night of activities in town.
Truly, we had a delightful stay and would recommend a visit. Maybe we'll see you there...because we will be back:) Dottie & David
