Perfect B and B- our stay here could not have been more enjoyable...the owners Blaise and Bess are the most lovely hosts- making you feel welcome like family returning home! Our room was like a little haven- quiet, cool with simply the most comfortable bed on earth. We stayed in the studio. The pool is gorgeous and spa elegant. The... More

Our stay at Gateway Guesthouse far exceeded my expectations. After several frustrating days of searching for way overpriced and full hotels in Austin I stumbled on to a link for Gateway Guesthouse. There just so happened to be a room available and I grabbed it without any further research at all. Upon arrival I realized very quickly what a gem... More

Lovely little place. Very friendly inn-keepers who are more than happy to help with advice on restaurants etc. Excellent home-cooked breakfast. Within walking distance to South Congress. Nice stroll through a residential area. Note: they do have (very friendly) dogs in the house, in case you happen to have an allergy.

It was a pleasure to have you stop by and stay with us. We hope you continued travels were enjoyable. Just so everyone is aware, both of our dogs are hypoallergenic, as I too am allergic. The Standard Poodle Louie and the Soft Coated Wheaten Leo are both groomed dogs. So there are no worries about allergies. Thanks again and... More

If you're looking for a calm and genuinely welcoming place to stay yet close proximity to the city center of Austin, the Gateway is your best pick. Add to it the outstanding home cooked breakfast and the innkeepers willingness to go above and beyond to make their guests feel at home, you will not even want to leave at the... More

Wow! I have stayed in a lot of B&Bs over the years, and the Gateway Guesthouse is definitely one of my favorites. Everything is just perfect--the accommodations are lovely (and uber clean), the inn keepers are warm and welcoming, and well, I can't tell you how wonderful breakfasts are--you just have to experience them for yourself.

I just visited Gateway Guesthouse last weekend and everything was perfect. The breakfasts were so delicious and the master suite was spacious and relaxing, with my own private patio! The poolside lounge area is very Zen. I will go back!

The Gateway Guesthouse is the best B&B I've ever stayed in for a number of reasons. Bess and Blaise who run it, are two of the nicest, friendliest and loveliest people I've ever had the pleasure in meeting. The room was amazing and cleaned every day. The whole house is beautiful and the garden is great too. There's two gorgeous... More

This was our first trip to Austin which we loved and a key component to why we loved the trip so much was our stay at this gem of a B&B.
