This B&B is in a 1906 historic house. It is decorated with period pictures, furniture and other items giving it a slightly dated feel. The rooms could use a little maintenance in the fit and finish department, but they are quite acceptable. The inkeeper, Barbara, is very nice and friendly. The lovely grounds contain several statues and a fountain. There is a mellow dog and two friendly cats. The B&B is located in a quiet neighborhood and not in downtown Austin, but it is only a short drive or bus ride to downtown. I enjoyed my stay.

We cancelled a booking for the busy SXSW week in March 06 well in advance, (5 months) the managers admit they lost my details so without authority in Jan 06 they charged $719 to my VISA as a way of getting me to call them again from New Zealand. While they did refund the base amount there was no apology and no compensation for the $41 in foreign currency exchange and bank fees that I incurred. Except for one flat refusal they have ignored all communications regarding a full refund.
My experience is that The Strickland Arms record keeping is sloppy and unprofessional, communication is poor. You should not assume that any booking made or cancelled is going to be actioned. Be very careful about giving your credit card information to managers.

I have stayed there more than once. The old house is enchanting. Its been renovated so each room has its own bathroom which is not the norm for such places. Each room also had it own private phone line and cable TV. I noticed that compared to a lot other places that the rooms are very quite.
The owners live there and are still working constucting fountains and restoring an old stone water tower that is next to the house. If you can corner them try to get Barbara to give you a tour of her leaded glass studio and James to tell you stories of the Strickand Family which has been in Texas forever
