This place is okay, but I wouldn't stay here again. My girlfriend and I stayed her in May 2014 and we were looking for something romantic and close to downtown. We got a room in the house next to the main house and the room was nice, but not worth $300 a night. We should of checked around first and found a more reasonably priced room, and it closer to the downtown. The parking lot was 4-5 blocks away and the staff didn't have a golf cart or anything to help us with the bags or drive our car out there, especially so late at night when we returned from dinner. That was a scary walk back to our room.
Just make sure to check around available B&Bs before settling on this one, unless you like overpaying for a room and plan on staying in the room 24/7 to get your money's worth.

We stayed here for three nights for our anniversary from August 9 through 12, 2014. We stayed in the Alexandra room (#109), which has a queen bed, with a deluxe jacuzzi tub and separate shower. The room was beautiful. My wife feel in love with it the moment we saw it on their website before we booked. This was our first time in a "bed and breakfast" inn, so we didn't know what to expect. We picked the Wescott because it seemed a little bigger of a place, as far as number of rooms and thought it may be a good compromise between our familiar "hotel" experience and a bed and breakfast.

Let me say that this place is all the way a "bed and breakfast" and i say that as the highest form of flattery and compliment. The staff was very courteous, professional, and helpful for the first time i called to make the reservation. Zoe, Lisa, and everyone there is incredible. They will truly fulfill any request or desire and cater to your every need. I made a few requests and booked some add-ons to our stay like a couples one hour, in-room massage, a beach picnic set up, some chocolate strawberries, and a cheese and fruit platter for an event we had planned to attend. They took care of every request without hesitation and to my exact specifications.

The breakfast served daily is like something out of a 5 star gourmet restaurant. Everything we had was absolutely delicious! The baked french toast, the eggs benedict, and the four cheese egg pie were all great! The social hour they set up every evening between 5-7 pm is also great. They put out about four different wines and beverages, with assorted cheeses and snacks which are free for all guests to enjoy while they socialize or take some back to their room. We could not have asked for a better stay anywhere. We are now spoiled and will judge all other hotels and inns we stay at by this standard, which will definitely be hard to match or beat.

There is no question about it...we will stay here again as soon as we can, and HIGHLY RECOMMEND everyone to stay here at some point soon! Your special someone will thank you for the most amazing stay and memorable occasion once you do.

We can't thank the staff at the Westcott House enough for their hospitality and attention.

We had a wonderful weekend at westcott house! We stayed in carriage house and it was a bit more private. The breakfast was amazing. The location was perfect - we were able to walk everywhere. Great hospitality. Everything was perfect!

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Bayfront Westcott and it was well-worth the money. It has an excellent location (especially for using one of the Trolley services if you have never been to St. Augustine) with a lovely view of the bay. The staff were MORE than accomodating. If I asked for something, it was happily provided.

As I have not stayed at a B&B before, I have a sneaking suspicion that I am now spoiled as I feel the Bayfront Westcott has set a VERY high bar for other B&B's to aspire to. The rooms were kept very tidy and were just a delight. As we stayed over an extra day, we had the opportunity to "peek" into some of the other unoccupied rooms - all of which were unique and had their own charm to match what a traveler may want or want to spend.

In addition, they have a "Social Hour" where they serve wine, cheese, and various light hors d'ourves which made a nice touch - especially to meet and chat with some of the fellow Guests at the Inn. Many were fairly "local" (meaning within the state of Florida), but some were distant travellers. In any event, I thought this was a nice differentiator.

The staff had some good suggestions about local activities and restaurants in the area. As we had not been to St. Augustine before, they were very helpful with their suggestions. Our problem was we simply did not have enough time to do everything we thought we wanted to as we were only in the area for four days. Looks like we may have to go back. Darn, right? :-)

In any event, if you have the deisre to stay at a B&B, then I would highly recommend the Bayfront Westcott as a great destination in the St. Augustine area. Kudos to the staff for making it a GREAT experience!

Room Tip: Not all rooms have a separate shower / tub area from the bedroom.

My first experience staying at a bed and breakfast was at the Bayfront Wescott. I'm glad!. The property is beautiful, right across the bay, and centrally located. The people were friendly and very accomodating. Execellent breakfast choices, and social hour. Definitevely recommend.

Room Tip: Check out the rooms on their website. They are a true representation on how they look, and offer very accurate description. You will get exactly what's described.
