Customer service par excellence

The rooms are beautiful ......... the gardens are stunning ......... the breakfast as well as the afternoon wine and hors d'oeuvres are delicious. But best of all is the way the staff treats and pampers the guests at the Simpson House Inn. Everyone seems to love working there and it shows in the attention to detail and welcoming and helpful attitude of the staff.

Specifically regarding my room - I was determined to find availability of the Robert & Julia Simpson suite - and my perseverance paid off. The room has a private wrap around deck with a table and umbrella, chairs in the sun and a sofa in the shade. It feels like a private apartment. The bed linens are incredible - providing a very restful sleep.

Each morning there is a breakfast that rotates each day of the week - featuring a hot dish with other options of eggs and also steel-cut oatmeal.

Staying at the Simpson House Inn is worth the price!

Finally, a Room Worth the Price!

Actually, not a room, but a generous double story cottage sitting in a lush garden under the ancient English oak is something right out of the Cotswolds, but better. Authentic and genuine in every detail, the Simpson House Inn affords you a dreamlike respite from the rush, rush world of Southern California

Best ever

If you're looking for elegance and peace and quiet, this is the place. Lavish breakfasts and period-decorated rooms. Off the beaten path in a Santa Barbara neighborhood but five minute walk to anyhing you need.
