We stayed in the quiet and cozy Austin room. The whole place was unique and interesting. The location was ideal to walk around the town and see all of the beautiful murals. We would definitely go back!
I have stayed at Ant Street Inn on many occasions. Its proximity to shops and restaurants in downtown Brenham is a draw, and it's also a lovely place to stay when you're attending events in Brenham and nearby venues such as Round Top. The beautiful Victorian furnishings in this historic setting create a wonderful ambience in which to relax. Yet Ant Street has all the modern conveniences the traveler needs. The Brenham Grill is a convenient and delicious choice for dining while there. You get the personal touch from the owners, who remember the names of repeat visitors.
We recently stayed two nights in the Ant Street Inn in Brenham, Texas and cannot recommend it highly enough! The desk staff was very helpful (they let us borrow a little fan during our stay) and the room was beautiful. Our room had huge windows, overlooking one of the downtown streets and was within walking distance of several shops, restaurants and bars. Even though we were overlooking the street, we heard no street noise at all (maybe the fan helped with this). The room was large with a nice amount of counter around the sink to accommodate toiletries and the canopied bed was extremely comfortable. The furnishings were unique and beautiful. There was also a small room next to our room containing a fancy (but easy to use) coffee maker with a plentiful supply of different coffees and teas, microwave, a refrigerator stocked with soft drinks and Blue Bell ice cream cups, and many small items (like corkscrews and bottle openers) for the guests' convenience. There was also an area with couches, chairs and tables that would be appropriate for games or conversations.…
Our first time staying here. Excellent from beginning to end. Suzy, the owner, was incredibly helpful. My room was beautiful and very, very comfortable. It was a very memorable, wonderful stay. The “drink room” was a nice amenity. Highly recommend.
This was a quaint, clean and well adorned inn, and it enhanced our stay in Brenham. The room was beautiful, the bed comfortable, and the downtown was walkable. I would stay here again. The complimentary Bluebell vanilla ice cream was a nice touch.
We had the Mobile Room with 2 beds and it worked beautifully for my daughter and myself. We loved sitting on the veranda with a complimentary ice cream or our own glass of wine after a day of shopping Roundtop. It was convenient to have breakfast right at the hotel with a flexible schedule.
Although there was a mix up and we didn't get the room we wanted, we still loved it! We got to listen to the Texas Art & Music Festival concert from the balcony. This was our 2nd stay, and we're already planning to go again next year. What I always want to know about when I'm booking a B&B is the breakfast ... it's outstanding! Great service, choices, food, & coffee. We were there on a Sunday and a Monday so we got to try their brunch & breakfast (served at the Brenham Grill). I had the eggs florentine & migas and loved them both. The potatoes were delicious. I wish they'd had real butter for the toast, but that was truly my only gripe.
We stayed at the Ant Street Inn for 1 night (Saturday). My husband had stayed previously many times for work related meetings and had enjoyed his stay. The property is cute and centrally located. When we returned from dinner Saturday night the noise level inside of our room was unbearable. There is a bar across the street which was playing loud music (outside). It was as though the band was in our room. It was a little after 9, so I called the owners on the after hours number. I asked how long the music would be going and explained how loud it was in our room. The response was it should end at 9 (it was after 9 so that couldn't happen), then 10. In reality, it was after 11 p.m. I was told first, only a few guests had complained about the noise (which would seem like one too many...), then was told that they had reported this to the police and that there was nothing they could do. I asked if we could move rooms and was told nothing was available. I explained that they should have warned us about the possible noise (they clearly had notice) and instead of apologizing or trying to make it right with us, she hung up on me. I called back, explained that I would have to tell the truth about my experience and right a review and she hung up on me again. To be clear, I understand that there may be nothing they can do about noise coming from an adjacent bar. However, they could have warned us (other guests also said it bothered them at breakfast the next day). Some hotels provide ear plugs (when located near a train track) - note this hotel is also near a train track but you can't hear the train over the loud band. Very disappointing in how this was handled and certainly not acceptable for the owner to hang up not once, but twice on a guest.…
Our New Orleans room was right across from the lovely coffee bar and ice cream! Everyone was so friendly, breakfast was very good, and such a pretty town to walk around. We even had an alligator in the spacious bathroom (wooden). Not to be missed, Must be Heaven ice cream parlor across the street!
I have stayed here several times and always downstairs as I love this room. The bathroom is large with a separate shower and tub. The room opens to the courtyard and has comfortable seating. There is a table and we have had breakfast on the porch. The restaurant has a good menu and Bluebell ice cream is available for guests if the inn. The stats are so relaxing.
