I don't even know where to start. Everything about the Park Lane Guest House is perfect! Initially we just wanted a place to stay while we explored Austin but we loved our accommodations so much we found it difficult to leave and ended up starting our days exploring later than planned. My husband and I stayed in the Garden Cottage,... More

After our festival visit the nicest place to relax. Architectural jewel off the hectic city with many details which it is a matter to discover. The hosts are always there without being meddlesome. Thanks for everything, Arne + Arne

My husband and I stayed one night in December, 2013. We stayed in the Vickie Suite, which is a small house where the bed is in a loft. What a wonderful night we had. The suite is extremely clean and cozy. The bed was soft and warm. The breakfast the next morning (brought to us in our suite) was nothing... More

We are so glad we decided to stay here while visiting Austin for the first time. We stayed in the Carriage House which opens to the pool. Comfy bed, very relaxing room. Wonderful breakfast in the morning made from super fresh eggs from hens that also live onsite. Easy to walk to SoCo, downtown, great restaurants nearby. Wonderful time!

Beware, this facility has a 14 day cancellation policy and they are NOT flexible even due to a medical situation.

A quiet oasis where they have thought of everything. Very comfortable rooms and so tranquil to sit outside and relax in the garden after a crazy workday. Breakfast is always delicious and the location just of S. Congress can't be beat for walking to dinner, music, and ice cream!

The Park Lane Guest House is perfectly located off S. Congress. It is beautiful and peaceful. The breakfast was beyond delicious...so fresh. Shakti, the hostess, was delightful, full of helpful information and answered all of our questions. We will be back!
