Excellent location for historic St Augustine! Good breakfast! Spacious covered porch with plenty seating. Computer help with airline boarding pass. Small room, just enough for queen-size bed. Very noisy a/c, with locked out controls for fan and temp. Bath and closet combination (hat and coat rack) large enough. We saw no other bedrooms.

Just checked out after our 3 night stay at The Penny Farthing Inn and let me say it was a struggle to leave! We would have extended our stay if we could. The family running the inn consists of some of the kindest and most attentive people we have met. You can tell they really care about the Inn! Rooms...

Everything was perfect - the inn is charming and walking distance to Flagler College, sightseeing and restaurants. The inn keepers are lovely. Room was clean and pretty. Breakfast of eggs benedict was "over the top". We've stayed there before and will continue to stay there when we are in St. Augustine.

The host's were very beautiful people really made you feel comfortable. The guests also were nice. I would love to go back again. The room was like being in your own bedroom and the breakfast was perfect also the afternoon snacks they put out.

We stayed in the Attic Room which was like a miniature apartment. Even in August, the room stayed cool. The host and hostess were so wonderful. The beds were comfortable and the inn was quiet. I appreciated this after a rough week at work. The Inn is well situated near the Casa Monica and old town.
