Fabulous experience; would definitely recommend

Reviewed 11 may, 2022

This was an expensive splurge for my wife and I but it was worth it. The grounds are immaculate and beautiful, the location is in a pleasant residential neighborhood, and the small cottage we stayed in on the grounds (with a wood-burning fireplace) was as cozy and charming as could be. We arrived in late afternoon just in time for wine and a wide assortment of appetizers, all of which were good. And in the morning had an incredible three-course breakfast on the front porch overlooking the garden. All together a very positive experience that we would highly recommend if you can handle the cost.

Most incredible experience

Reviewed 7 may, 2022

It's like going back into time where life had a more relaxing, upscale feel. The grounds are incredible..you can just sit on any chair and feel so relaxed. You just be. The porch is so great especially when they serve their delicious breakfast...unlike anything offered at most places. Throughout the day, there are homemade scones and lemonade...such a nice refreshing treat/amenity. The rooms do send you back in time a bit but impeccably done. If you're as fortunate as I was to get a wrap-around porch balcony overlooking the front and side garden, you'd want to entertain yourself and invite all your friends over. As if that's not enough, the afternoon wine and appetizers are presented with such an "otherworldly" experience.. other places just don't do this. It's upscale yet homey and welcoming. Only two blocks from State Street, you can walk all around and enjoy a lot of what Santa Barbara offers. Everyone on the staff is so friendly. I will definitely be back. Thank you for a great experience. Then to top it off, you are presented with a set of beautiful notecards as a memory of your experience. Incredible!!

Delightful and elegant boutique hotel

Reviewed 10 april, 2022

A most delightful stay. The hotel is small, elegant, beautifully decorated, with comfortable and welcoming public rooms. The staff are competent and very welcoming. There is a daily late afternoon drinks and snacks session which adds to the overall enjoyment. This hotel is a real treasure and so different from those marble-halled impersonal monsters that we are so used to. Delicious breakfast overlooking the garden. We would have stayed longer but, not surprisingly, they were full.

Outstanding

Reviewed 9 april, 2022

A long overdue return to this amazing property. A 3 night stay in Pendle Cottage. Everything about The Simpson House was perfect. Superb service from every staff member. Impeccable grounds that invite you to settle in, unwind, and simply relax. Breakfast and afternoon hor d’oeuvres were all delicious. Walking distance to downtown. It’s hard to imagine a more perfect getaway so close to home. The highest recommendation.

A special place!

Reviewed 8 april, 2022

Absolutely magnificent! Over the top helpful and friendly staff, their Happy Hour spread was great and the breakfast was first class. Very comfortable room with mini-fridge and wine available for purchase. We had a lovely and very large sun deck and can imagine it being fun to hang out and read. Sadly, the time we were there it was raining like crazy. Tip: bathrooms are very small
