A wonderfully warm and comfortable place to say. Our group included five and we arrived very late, but were greeted with open arms by friendly staff who was very accommodating. David, the Manager & cook, even shared his recipes with us, as well as the history of the Dabbs. Would definitely go back.

We stayed at the Dabbs Hotel B&B May 24-26th, 2014. From the first time speaking with David, the manager, we knew we would be in good hands! Both he and his wife Susan were excellent hosts and his breakfasts were delicious!! We stayed on the first floor next to the front door. Because we arrived late, it was not too... More

My fiance (now husband) and I decided to get married at the Dabbs after being turned off by the prices we found in nearby Fredericksburg. All of our friends and family said it was one of the best weddings they have ever been to. The grounds were well taken care of and there was green plants and flowers everywhere. Phyllis... More

Wow. I read the other reviews of the Dabbs Hotel and was shocked. My experience was completely different than what I read. Arriving at the hotel, the proprietor, a very cheerful lady named Phyllis was there to greet me. After giving me the keys, she gave me a tour of the place, and it reminded me of boyhood visits to...

Forget everything you've read about Dabbs Railroad Hotel. Yes, it still retains the old charm of turn of the century Llano, but this bed and breakfast has undergone some major transformations over the past couple of years, all for the better. The old Dabbs that many remember from the late 80's and early 90's has all but vanished, replaced with... More

We were the only guests the weekend we stayed. We found the bed and linens to be very comfortable and inviting, as well as the bath. We most enjoyed our time reading in the chairs out on the lawn as we listened to the river. The manager showed up to cook us breakfast at our requested time, and it was... More

My sister and I were the only guests the night that we were there. We picked our room (double beds only) across from a large, beautifully remodeled bath. The hotel provides nice bathrobes for any late-night bathroom trips down the hall. The room was small, but nicely furnished. We could hear water flowing over the dam under the bridge, which... More

We stayed at the Dabbs 10 years ago. Was an interesting place. But now the new owner has restored the hotel and the place is wonderful. Tastefully decorated and charming. Please give this B and B another chance. Our group enjoyed the stay.

Disregard any reviews of the Dabbs prior to 2007---it's not a hippie flop house anymore! The new owner has clearly sunk considerable funds and energy into completely remodeling and upgrading the hotel as a wedding, reunion, or special event facility. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, the interior tastefully remodeled. But it's still as laid back and charming as ever: metal... More

My wife and I wanted a romantic getaway and had heard about The Dabbs. We heard all this cool stuff about Bonnie and Clyde and how it was all Period with great bar-b qs and live music. We made the mistake of going there. It was one of the worst hotel experiences of my life. There was not enough light... More

This 1907 historic railroad hotel changed ownership in 2007 and was completely remodeled, renovated, and updated, while at the same time,still maintaining its historic railroad hotel charm. Reviews written prior to 2007 most likely could have been accurate, However today, one may should not consider those when choosing the hotel for an upcoming meeting, family event, or as a simple...
