I love this place. The owners and staff make you feel like you're at home. The best feature is the beautiful gardens, pool and fountain. James Strickland even offered us a glass of wine to drink by the pool. I'm definitely coming back!

I thought that several reviews regarding scrambled eggs, biscuits and a fruit plate for breakfast had to be an exaggeration. They were not. Two mornings and two breakfasts of the same fair did in fact occur. While the rooms were attractive and spacious and the beds were comfortable, it was difficult sleeping there the first night. Much of the property... More

I have stayed at many B & B's and unfortunately this one is close to the bottom of my list. The locations is nice. The house and property have great potential but the attention to detail and professionalism are lacking. As previous reviewers mentioned, the fluffy towels were abundant. The antique furniture was beautiful and the pool setting was eclectic... More

We came from another B&B which was very very nice, so it would be hard to live up to this. The location is very good, nice area, close to restaurants and shopping, easy access to down town etc. The hosts and the aid are very friendly and the house is very beautifull. We stayed in Lady Maes room. The room... More

Very casual and comfortable atmoshpere! We stayed in the Lady Mae for our first visit and then the Sir Soren for our 2nd trip! Both rooms were very clean and... More

Stayed at the Strickland Arms for Graduation. Very nice and accommodating owners. Nice rooms but best feature is the outdoor space at the rear of the B & B. Outdoor pool and several different seating areas under large trees. Hot tub for cooler weather. An oasis of quiet, yet only a couple of miles from downtown. Some of the other... More

What a friendly and sweet place to stay! I visited Austin and the first 2 nights was at Strickland Arms. A local friend found their website for me and I immediately loved the photos and description of the property. When we pulled up to the B&B the first impression was impressive - it's a beautiful house and I was immediately... More

This is a small B&B with 3 1/2 rooms (I think,see site for details).The room was quiet with it's own air conditioner that didn't keep us awake at night. The room was simple, queen bed, armoire for clothes small shower/toilet, Computer screen sized tv. But that was plenty for this lovely little B&B. Breakfast was simple, eggs, biscuits, fruit, jelly.Breafast... More

We stayed in Sir David's Room and was absolutely impressed by his hospitality. We had a beautiful view through the windows of the back gardens with the pool and trees. The breakfast was so nice with delicious coffee, yummy orange juice, fresh eggs, fruit, and amazing biscuits with jam. We would definitely stay here again, it was so soothing, a... More

I stumbled onto the Strickland Arms website when I was looking for a room for the Formula 1 race weekend. All of the hotel rooms were way overpriced ($499 for a room at La Quinta?!?!?!). I emailed Barbara and she had just had a cancellation so I snapped it up. I'm so glad I did! It seems that this is... More
