We love it when locals come to stay and see the city from a different point of view. It was so nice to meet you. We hope to see you during Fiesta next April and you can enjoy being in the midst of the King William Fair. More

My husband and I spent a week in San Antonio at the Brackenridge House. The house is beautiful, our room was quiet and comfortable and the meals that our hostess Lily prepared for us were fantastic. Pretty much everything was within a reasonable walking distance and Lily provided us with a list of local restaurants and shopping venues complete with... More

In quite a quirky and beautiful part of San Antonio. About 20 minutes walk along the river to downtown. A fine old house in a quiet street; parking no problem. A selection of cafes and restaurants, as well as a Texan beer garden called, I think, "The Friendly Spot" are within easy walking distance. The room was Victorian-ish in style.... More

Such a nice happenstance to meet folk from your own home town at Brackenridge House B&B. Adventures in a country other than one's own are awesome, but it is always nice to hear a familiar accent. Let us know if you meet up back in England. And we'd love to see you again. More

We stayed here for our 25th anniversary. Host was lovely and gracious. Each of the three breakfasts we had there far exceeded our expectations. It was also within easy walking distance to many of San Antonio's familiar tourist destinations. My husband and I would highly recommend this B&B and want to come back.

Wow, it is wonderful to be in business long enough for you to celebrate your 25th at the same inn where you had your Honeymoon. In 2016, Brackenridge House will celebrate its 30th Anniversary. We again wish you both a Happy Anniversary. Don't wait another 25 years to come back for another stay. More

I highly recommend the Brackenridge House B&B. Knowing that I was traveling alone, Lilly, the B&B's proprietor stayed later than usual to meet me, and upon my arrival, she showed me around the house, gave me maps to local attractions, and made sure I was comfortable before heading out that evening. Since other guests decided to leave before breakfast the... More

One of the best features of staying at our B&B is the security that single, female travelers can feel. We will always go out of our way to welcome you and to be aware of your comings and goings to the extent that you desire. Our perk as innkeepers is the chance to visit with our guests in comfort and... More

My husband and I live in Austin and went for a quick 2 night trip. The hotel was so cute and clean. The owner Lily was so nice and helpful regarding all the things to do in the area. The house is in a great location and we were able to walk to the Riverwalk, the Blue Star Arts District... More

This has to be the best b&b we have ever stayed at. Bluebird suite was spacious (and there were 3 of us) and comfortable. We loved the little touches, like stocked frig, cream cherri, chocolates, popcorn (in our room!), all the essential items just in case you forgot something (including shaving cream and all natural oatmeal soap!) Now to the... More

What a wonderful place to stay. The rooms all have the name of a bird. We stayed in the cardinal room. The antiques are wonderful and I loved the clawfoot tub!. We had breakfast out on the balcony. Everything was so green, blooming and beautiful in May, with nice breezes. I loved watching occasional people stroll by. German pancakes were... More

Excellent advice on the walking shoes! Isn't it great to stay in a location where you can see so much and yet have a cozy and comfortable B&B nearby to relax in. You inspire us to continue to share our knowledge of the city with our guests while providing a beautiful respite. Thank you for staying with us. More

The best thing about Brackenridge House was its location in the King William historic district. There are good restaurants (Feast, Hot Joy, Rosarios), cafe (Madhatters) and ice house right around the corner; it's also 10 - 15 minutes by foot to the River Walk. The property has nice porches in front and rear deck. Breakfast was fine. Wifi was functional.... More
