“Like a cruise ship on land”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

Great resort for relaxing and staying in one place. Lot's of restaurant choices, great fitness center, beautiful grounds. I seen some reviews where people thought the layout was confusing. I loved the old style décor and non traditional hotel layout. It was like an adventure walking through hallways and finding gems like granite ballrooms and hidden nooks throughout the hotel. The club House suite is amazing. What a view! The fitness center is great.

Wow, great service. Well trained and courteous from the reservations to the pro shop to wait staff. Kudos. Rooms was clean and well appointed and felt like we were staying in 5 star from the moment we arrived. Golf was terrific and breakfast buffet was too.

Great resort, especially for corporate events. The staff is very accommodating and on top of everything. We were never disappointed with the service and the location is beautiful. We had about 200 folks in for a 2 day corporate meeting. The resort property is huge and allows you to meet comfortably as a large group or small. You even have the option of going offsite (they had a meeting facility that was an old ranch home) and Barton Creek handled all of the transportation beautifully. I believe it will be the location of our next annual event

This was my husband's and my first trip to Austin, and also to Barton Creek. I'd read many mixed reviews of this hotel, and I agree, it could use some updating. The bathroom was on the small side, and there was no counter space for our toiletries. I pulled out the ironing board and used that as our counter! The toilet also flushed very slowly. There was a fireplace in the large room, and it added a nice touch. The view was beautiful of the rolling hills and tennis courts. The room was quiet (we were on the top floor) and the most we heard was other doors banging shut when people left. One of the elevators was very creepy; it shuddered as it moved and definitely needed servicing! The mattress was comfortable, but the pillows too soft for my liking. I used another pillow that was in the closet to boost up the one I had.

The food was excellent. We enjoyed the buffet breakfast, and 3 dinners as part of our convention. I loved the different pancakes or waffles and egg preparations that changed daily. There was an omelet station, and also a pianist played at dinner and on Sunday morning. The service was always very hospitable in the bar, the front desk, and at all the venues. I cannot say enough about Texas hospitality! When we realized my husband has left a very expensive pair of sunglasses in the room after we checked out, he called the hotel. They called him back a few hours later, and said they had found them and were mailing them back to us at their expense!

We were about 1/2 hour outside of Austin, but had shuttle buses as part of our package, so it wasn't a big deal to get into town. We loved Austin, the cool vibe, the great music, and the selection of restaurants and bars. If you want to be closer to downtown, this may not be the place for you, but if you want a quiet and scenic spot, then this is perfect.

We didn't use the spa or gym, or golf, so I don't know about the level of service at those places, but my husband enjoyed the nature trail for his walks.

Overall a great place, especially if you golf. Not much to do otherwise and some of the staff are less than friendly. Mostly the experiences were inconsistent. One day the gym attendant all but ignores you and there are no towels, the next they have a towel and headphones available and are pleasant and attentive.

My wife and I have stayed at many nice places in the past. The staff at Barton Creek was as friendly and attentive as we have ever experienced. We had a wonderful time and it was very relaxing. We would recommend Barton Creek to anyone.
