“A real bed and breakfast.”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

Eleanor and Bill made us feel quite welcome in their home. I'm very particular about my bed and I must give a gold star where one is due! Very accommodating to our special dietary needs, and generous with knowing what comforts would make our stay enjoyable. Our hosts were gracious and our room was quiet clean and safe. An easy 5 stars.

If I could give this more than 5 stars I would. My (then) boyfriend (now fiancé) took me to Her Castle for a surprise getaway to Cambria. Every detail is taken care of! Eleanor goes far beyond anything you could possibly imagine. I've traveled the world and stayed at fancy hotels, but this was more than I could have imagined. It is nestled in this quiet area and the private patio is so beautiful for "pre" breakfast. The main breakfast is phenomenal. Everything is delicious and you leave feeling so content and full. And Eleanor has information about EVERYTHING. You almost don't have to plan anything for your stay. In the planning process, my fiancé told Eleanor that it was our anniversary so we had a beautiful sign and champagne and strawberries waiting for us upon arrival, a very thoughtful touch! It was so romantic and memorable, I know we'll definitely be back!!

We were just spending the night in Cambria but wanted someplace homey as we were traveling as a family. Her Castle is not perhaps a conventional or traditional (at least in my limited experience) B&B, i.e., kind of an old Victorian with wrap-around porch, but it has the feel of one with a great, spacious room with WiFi and cable TV, with nice large bathroom en suite with all the modern requirements. There's a private entry from the main house one level down with a nice porch and view. With all this you get a bonus: some of the nicest, warmest and welcoming hosts you could ask for. They care: about you and your comfort and went out of their way to make us feel at home ... and we did! Did I mention the breakfast: waffles, fruit, souffle ... good coffee ... we'll be back!

Room Tip: We stayed in the larger of the two rooms and it was perfect for the three of us ... could easily hol...

Recently we stayed at Her Castle, in Cambria. We cannot say enough about Her Castle and the host and hostess, Bill and Eleanor. We have never in our lives stayed in a hotel or bed and breakfast accommodation that supplied our every need - from band aides to luxurious linens. Whatever you could dream of that you might need - it was there! Whatever you've forgotten, they've remembered! Bill and Eleanor are so wonderful to their guests. They take care of you from a beautiful room to a sumptuous breakfast in their dining room. We stayed in the king room, which had it's own deck, coffee pot, refrigerator, microwave, pamphlets on things to do in the area, and more. Her Castle is situated in the redwoods, but close to the beaches with walking paths that are easy to get to. Her Castle is definitely your home away from home. We will definitely stay at Her Castle again and tell our friends to stay also! Dieter and Emily Papsch

Room Tip: A great host and hostess are as important as the good room. Her Castle has both!

We stayed 3 nights in the room with a luxurious king bed. It has a private entrance and a balcony with a fridge. Eleanor and Bill treated us like good friends and went out of their way to ensure that we were comfortable. They provided information about dining and local sights. Special touches included coffee, buns and yogurt left at our door each morning, followed by a delicious breakfast served in their lovely home. Available in our room was everything that a traveller might need - toothbrushes, razors, paper plates, cutlery, water, snacks, warm robes, and more. The balcony provides a nice view of pine trees and local birds at the feeder. Moonstone Beach and hiking trails are only a five minute drive away. Morro Bay is about a 20 minute drive and worth the trip to see the harbour and watch the seals eating the kelp. Hearst castle is about the same distance to the north and there is a beautiful beach across the road from the castle. There are sea lions to view along the way. It is a beautiful area and a wonderful B & B. We really enjoyed our stay!

Stayed here for a last minute trip. Very accommodating including drop off and pick up service if you would like to enjoy drinks with dinner. Breakfast each morning was great and meeting the other guests was a nice bonus. Coffee, tea, or whatever served to your room in the am. Just FYI, not walking distance to town or
Moonstone Dr. However, the value is extraordinary. And they are dog friendly! Do give them a try. I will stay again.

My wife and I stayed at the Her Castle B&B for two nights. Our room had everything we would want in a room to make us feel at home! It felt like that we had visited a relative/family!!! The innkeepers went above and beyond to make us feel at home (e.g. Bottle of wine upon arrival, plenty of snacks in the room, water & soda in the fridge, and many other extras). Breakfast was plentiful and delicious. Recommendations on local attractions were very helpful.
