This was our first visit to Capitola. The Inn looked very inviting online. When we arrived at 3 pm our room was not ready. We had to wait 30 minutes until it was available. We were told breakfast was at 8 am at the earliest, but that pastries and coffee were available at 7 am for early risers. We were... More

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 25 April 2016 via mobile

The staff and the rooms here are absolutely wonderful. We stayed in the library suite and we found it to be spacious and interesting. It has three levels so there are some steps to negotiate, but my wife and I truly enjoyed the unique room. They arranged to have us picked up by the Shadowbrook restaurant, not a bad walk... More

From the king-size bed, a rarity in my experience of b&bs, to the fresh roses in our Capitola room, which was lovely and spacious, to the really excellent food and service, I couldn't have asked for a better experience. The inn is a quarter mile from the beach and the charming village, with excellent restaurants like the Paradise Beach Grill.

A lovely, well maintained former train depot. Great location. We were in the Costa del Sol room which was very comfortable and beautifully decorated. The breakfast was good and delivered to our room. The evening wine and hors d'oeuvres and later port and truffles were great. The staff was very friendly and welcoming.

We stayed here during the Capitola Art and Wine festival. What a wonderful place to stay! It's literally a few minutes walk from the cute coastal area. The hotel itself is very relaxing and beautiful. The staff is very friendly too. I recommend the Library suite with its hidden nook and seating area. They also cater for gluten free.

This place is amazing and every room is different and beautiful. It is not inexpensive, but very cool. They serve an awesome wine and cheese hour every day. And the breakfast is included and is outstanding.

This is a very nice inn, and I'm confident that you will enjoy your stay here. However, it is not the peak of luxury that you might expect from the descriptions and photographs on their website. I also thought our room was overpriced at $307 one night and $384 the other night, including tax. The inn has a charming look... More
