Braunschweig, Germany
Reviewed 30 September 2014

A very pretty, Spanish-style looking bed & breakfast. Beautiful courtyard with a little fountain, private balconies or patios, all the amenities one might expect from a hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff with lots of knowledge about the local wine and restaurant scene, very attentive and fast service. Terrific breakfast buffet with fresh fruit, pastries (sweet and savory), yogurt, bread/jams,...

Lindi H, Thank you for the thorough and kind review. I will mention that we are most definitely a Hotel and offer many more services than our friends at nearby B&Bs. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and hope that you will be able to visit us again in the future. Thank you, Brian Cogswell

The Spanish Garden Inn is a beautiful and charming hotel. The rooms are clean, large and nicely furnished. The staff is very friendly. The most charming thing about the hotel we found is the inner courtyard with beautiful plants and flowers. Breakfast can also be enjoyed here. The hotel is very centrally located, just a short walk to State Street....

I was just at the Spanish Garden Inn this last weekend. From the front desk people, Brian and Marley to the "Happy Birthday" set up for my husband, pure perfection!.

A beautiful, quiet hotel in the centre of Santa Barbara. We had a gorgeous room just near the pool, with its own terrace where we had breakfast. The bathroom was excellent, with a separate shower and bath. The room was perfect, with a wonderfully comfy bed and cosy sitting area (with a fire - not needed while we were there)....

Excellent place to stay in downtown Santa Barbara. Perfect location (3 blocks from State Street). The staff is truly world class. Everyone there was so nice and helpful. The rooms are wonderful and very comfortable. We would highly recommend this place to anyone who appreciates a slightly smaller hotel, with a luxury atmosphere. ps--the breakfast is outstanding.

A look at the rankings of the 724 comments posted to the Spanish Garden Inn says a lot; such was how I found it. The property is beautiful and sealed off from any street noise. I came solo in September, with my wife in April. Both rooms were spacious and each had a balcony for end of the day relaxation....

We love this Inn. Good location, just 3 blocks from State. Rooms are just charming and each of our three rooms were different. Beds are comfortable, huge bathtub, with great bath products and great bath linens. The Continental breakfast is great. Love the courtyards for sharing a glass of wine. Service was exceptional. I would stay here again and again.
