from the moment you arrive you feel very special. we had a poolside room with a little outside seating area. so many great little touches; the spring water in the room, the little kitchenette, the fabulous fluffy towels...but the best thing was the bed--and the over abundances of pillows!!! the second our heads hit the pillows we were out.

I was going to see Bob Schneider for the first time at Threadgill's. Decided to do it right and book Hotel Saint Cecilia. From the moment I booked the room, the hotel sent me an email confirmation and gave me a call to confirm my booking. Read specific arrival instructions in the email. Went right to the hotel and pushed... More

We really enjoyed staying here and have no regrets. The room was quiet, spacious and tastefully decorated. The turntable was fun. We loved the turquoise tiled bathroom. The garden is beautiful. However, this is an expensive hotel and there are few small things that would make the room worthy of its high price tag, mostly to do with sleep quality.... More

Thank you for your nigh marks and we apologize that you did not fully enjoy your stay with us. While the Pool Bungalows can be great for their openness and light, we regret that the light was an issue for your sleep and that we were not able to remedy the issue during the course of your stay. Thank you... More

I cant begin to say how amazing this boutique property is. From the moment I contacted Kaleigh in reservations to the time I arrived and was greeted by Scott, no detail was missed. The pool is a perfect and quaint oasis, with a perfectly curated sound track. The drinks poolside were stellar. My room was spacious and perfectly clean. I... More

This is a very uniquely beautiful hotel. Pool is very cool with a lusted after soundtrack. Staff are incredibly helpful and attentive. Very expensive, especially at weekends, but worth every penny. We did not stay in the rooms which you have to access via the pool, so can't comment on this but I think I would find this frustrating. Record... More

Hotel Saint Cecilia is an unadvertised gem of a hotel with a delightful character. Three couples visited the quaint boutique establishment and we all agreed it was a wonderful experience. The owners of the converted old house have built additional rooms which sits on a beautiful piece of large oak tree property. The inviting landscape is perfectly manicured and offers... More

As an anniversary treat, my husband and I decided to visit Austin, where he went to school. I'd never been there, and when I checked out boutique hotels, Hotel Saint Cecilia came right up. A hotel that quotes William Burroughs, Leonard Cohen and Patti Smith is my kind of hotel. A peek at the suites and bungalows showed funky but... More

Went to Austin for a much needed vacay and came across Saint Cecelia via some blog reviews. I checked it out and loved the vibe of it so much that I immediately booked a stay there for two nights. Upon arriving at the hotel, I felt like I was walking into an oasis. The grounds have a very Los Angeles/Chateau... More
