Our experience at this bed and breakfast was amazing! Definitely a place I will recommend to any looking for a place to stay in Austin!
We stayed in the Gothic Suite and it was the perfect room for us! The bed was so comfortable, the TV's built in DVD player made for great movie watching at night (the Inn has an awesome variety of DVDs available to watch, we chose "What About Bob" :D ), and the balcony was the perfect place to sit outside and enjoy the lights in the courtyard at night. The sun room with the day bed attached to our bedroom was also great! The room truly had a old-timey Victorian Gothic/Castle theme (enter suit of armor!)! Such a great room!
Every room in the house was decorated differently, but they all still seemed to flow into one another, keeping the vibe interesting and comfortable at the same time. It definitely feels like you're at home when you're there. The breakfast dining area was open all day, which was great to catch a quick snack throughout the day, especially if the delicious complimentary cookies were all gone (but they were restocked quickly!). The living area downstairs is perfect for reading a book or getting work done!
The outside of the Inn is where we spent most of our time! The seating outdoors is awesome and perfect for lounging and enjoying the night air! The hammock, with room for two, was a great place to lay and enjoy the sound of the fountains found throughout the space as well as the countless Christmas lights that illuminate the yard. The front yard porch swing was also a highlight!
While the Inn is found directly off of Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd, a rather busy street in Austin, there is hardly, if any, noise from the traffic. The location of the Inn itself is great! It's located right up the road from The University of Texas, minutes from downtown, and right up the hill from Pease Park. There is plenty to keep you entertained if you choose to wander from the Inn for a bit!
The service was amazing as well! The folks in the main office will do everything in their power to make your stay a memorable one! They are courteous, polite and ultimately there to answer all questions you have! You will have no problems getting everything sorted out with the amazing people handling your reservations, and if for some reason you do, they will solve it as soon as possible and you will be very pleased, I'm sure! The staff that worked within the house was great too! One woman in particular that spent a great deal of time replenishing water stations, cleaning and working in the kitchen was such a joy to be around! She had a great way of being welcoming and keeping all refreshment stations full and fresh. We never had to request anything, as it was all already done for us!
The ambiance of the Inn, the services provided and the folks that get you situated and make you feel at home are all amazing! I can't wait to stay there again and highly recommend this bed and breakfast as a place to stay!
