The personal touch that we were provided was second to none. We had a special anniversary weekend planned, and they helped make it even more special. The breakfast was the best we've ever had at any bed and breakfast, the rooms were clean, and the atmosphere was spectacular.

The loft is "quirky" and it's always good when guests who stay are part billygoat! We are so glad you enjoyed your spot and the deck and everything in Austin. We are proud of our Inn and our town!

A truly wonderful BnB... FIRST CLASS! Property is quiet, peaceful and very welcoming. Hosts have every detail covered expertly. Breakfast is elegant and world class, yet still casual and comfortable... not one bit stuffy or snooty, but not sloppy or typical. We stayed in the Master Retreat. WOW.

It was perfect. Bess and Blaise are gracious, accommodating, and fun hosts. They always had time to give us tips and ideas to make our trip more enjoyable. The rooms are lovely, comfortable, and immaculate. Don't miss Bess's gourmet breakfast! The Gateway Guesthouse is close to downtown, Barton Springs, Congress Avenue. We had a terrific time and would return.
