Everything about Cheshire Cat Inn is fantastic! We stayed in the Prestbury Cottage. It was immaculate (the whole Inn was impeccably clean) and very comfortable with a full kitchen, a bath, living room, 2 bedrooms, and our own hot tub/spa with a sitting area. The food was delicious--breakfast had a very nice selection of cereals, yogurts, and bread to toast along with a fresh fruit cup and a special hot breakfast "entrée". The afternoon wine and appetizer hour was always delicious and a pleasant respite after a busy day out and about in Santa Barbara.
The grounds of the Inn are beautifully landscaped and maintained. It's a great location--away from the noisy tourist center of Santa Barbara, but a comfortable walk down State Street to shops and restaurants. For a longer walk, it is possible to stroll to the beach.
The innkeepers are all friendly and helpful. They offered many good suggestions for places to visit in and around Santa Barbara.
I'd stay at Cheshire Cat Inn again in a heartbeat and can't wait to return to this Absolutely Fabulous B&B.
