Me and my husband stayed here for the final leg of our honeymoon. We treated ourselves to the garden room - an absolutely stunning little home from home. From the moment we checked in to the moment we left we felt like a part of the Simpson House Inn family, and the staff couldn't do enough for you. It was a truly wonderful and homely place. Breakfast was beautifully presented and delicious to eat. We loved enjoying the wine in the evening on the veranda surrounded by the magical gardens. I cannot recommend this Inn enough, it was worth every single penny and more. Unfortunately we didn't get the name of the wonderful lady who checked us in, I wish we did because she was such a beautiful person inside and out that was extremely gracious, kind and welcoming. Thank you Simpson House Inn for the wonderful memories you have given that will last a lifetime.

We decided to book our stay at this Inn based on Trip Advisor reviews - my fellow Trip Advisor reviewers were spot on with their 5 star reviews! We are not typically bed and breakfast people, but this Inn looked so lovely that we thought it was worth trying. The great accommodations and the exceptional staff did not disappoint. The service was truly outstanding. Very personal. The staff anticipated everything we'd need or just like to have in order to make our stay a real pleasure. Our room was gorgeous and the grounds were perfectly maintained and manicured. Breakfast was delicious, served at our own table out on the charming wrap-around porch. The atmosphere is peaceful and quiet and the surroundings are just beautiful. Highly recommend.

My wife and I visited this Inn on our way down the California coast, and while it was only for one night, we left wishing we had stayed many more! the property is the perfect size and on the perfect location - carefully restored and detailed to perfection. We rented the master suite in the main house - the Robert & Julia Simpson room - which has a wrap around private balcony where you can have breakfast served to you and it overlooks the entire property. You really do feel like masters in here. The little details were all taken care of perfectly, from Kheils body lotions, to complimentary wine and snacks when you arrive, to intimate little corners around the property where you can sit and enjoy. We loved this Inn and would recommend it for anyone! Breakfast was including and very tasty as well.

This is cutest, more English, calm and precious Hotel you can Imagine in Santa Barbara. The service is just perfect, the rooms are nice, large and cosy, the breakfast is just what you need and sooooo British style. We were really sad to spend just one night.... If you go to Santa Barbara...don't hesitate....go to Simpson House Inn... You might find more modern, but you won't find as charming...

The Simpson House Inn is an enchanting and historic bed & breakfast. From the moment we walked in, the beautiful setting and the staff's manner put us at ease. Happy hour offering local wines and delicious nibbles helped us relax and refuel for a walk (45 minutes) through the town and down to the beach. We mentioned to the hostess at Simpson House that we were having dinner at nearby local favorite Opal Restaurant, and she told us that the Lemongrass salmon was her favorite (and a favorite of locals as well). I was happy she recommended it — it was amazing! Our comfortable room was in the charming cottage adjacent to the garden. It had it's own private sitting area. The grounds are incredibly well-kept and colorfully planted. I cannot imagine a better place to stay in Santa Barbara, and hope to return there again.
