TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 2 weeks ago

I have stayed here twice, most recently in December 2017 for three nights, and both times was sad to leave. Staff members are welcoming and helpful, the grounds are a gorgeous Garden of Eden blooming with roses, camellias, orchids and ferns, and the rooms are lovely, quaint and extremely comfortable. My first stay some years ago was a gorgeous room and bath upstairs in the main house, but last month I stayed in the freestanding Abbeywood Cottage across the garden from the main house, and then Weathervane, a roomy upstairs suite in an original historic out-building. Both rooms had gas wood-burning fireplaces, tricky and a little scary to light. Ask staff for help. Each also had charming outdoor and indoor areas for breakfast delivered to your room, if you prefer. We chose to have breakfast on the beautiful wrap-around porch of the main house, which has heaters for cool mornings. Breakfast goes far beyond continental and is served on beautiful old-world china. There are also bountiful hors d'oeuvres and wine at 5:30 and fresh-baked cookies and desserts later in the evening. All included in the room price! Prime location near North State Street, a shopping and dining Mecca, and a block from the scenic duck pond park. Simpson House is simply heavenly.

We booked the Garden Room and loved it! The bright and sunny room with vaulted ceiling has everything we needed for the stay. The hotel offers free Netflix too! My husband and I were truly delighted by the service and the personal touches we experienced during our stay, such as personalized breakfast menus addressed to each one of us. Every staff member we interacted with was super friendly and helpful. The property is quaint, quiet and relaxing. We enjoyed the hors d'oeuvre hour with wine tasting, and the deliciously well presented breakfast! My husband enjoyed his stay at the Inn more than our recent experience at a Four Seasons Hotel in Westlake Village. We plan to return!

During each visit, the entire staff is dedicated to making our stay as pleasant as possible. They go far out of their way to respond to our every request. We look forward to each visit as though we are returning to our second home in Santa Barbara. You will truly enjoy each element of your own stay at this wonderful Inn.

The Simpson House Inn is a small (15 room) B & B just off State Street in Santa Barbara. The grounds are idyllic and make one feel like they’re on a Victorian villa, with fountains and serene ambience. Yet walk out the gates, walk 1 and 1/2 blocks, and you’re on Santa Barbara’s main shopping street, with charming shops and great eats. We rented a cottage (the Simpson House Inn has both rooms and cottages), and we immediately fell in love with it. Private entrance, gas/wood burning fireplace, skylights, and a cozy interior feel won us over. And the service? Incredible! Friendly staff, breakfast included (go to the main house or have it delivered to your room), evening hors d’oeuvres and wine in the main house, turndown service—everything and more to make you feel good. And the “little” touches are heartwarming: 3 books for your reading pleasure that you can take home with you if you like, a personalized welcome note, chocolates in the evening turndown service, and lots of personal attention. In fact, I don’t think I should’ve written this review, as I’d like to keep Simpson House all to myself!

If you want a warm, luxurious, beautiful and very private place to stay, SImpson House Inn is perfect! Lovely accommodations, beautiful grounds and more amenities than you can imagine...all that and a delish evening social hour with local wine and fabulous breakfast! Goodies all day and stellar service... what more could you ask for?
