My wife and I spent two nights here while celebrating my birthday. I have nothing but good things to say about our stay. Great room with a great bed. Nice balcony overlooking the river. We enjoyed soaking in the large hot tub in the evenings. Complimentary wine every evening was very enjoyable. Breakfast was outstanding, with different hot offerings each...

I recently rented the entire hotel for the weekend and had my wedding ceremony on the property. My guests were overjoyed by the hospitality, cleanliness, comfort, and beauty of this property. Many were out of town from NYC and traveled far to come. Lindsay and her husband were a joy to work with through the whole process. My entire family...

We just returned from a quick overnight trip to float the river and spent the night at the GAB&B. We chose the "Broken Arrow" from the selection of themed rooms because of my affinity for the Native American culture, but had no real idea of what we would be getting. The online description (and this pertains to all the rooms)...

Nice decor different themes in the rooms. Only for two people per room. Stayed in the wild west room was nice. The breakfast was the lure when booking. Great Breakfast worth waking up for. There serve only for 8:30 to 9:30. Beat's any breakfast area in town. All home made and fresh. A little more than other bed and breakfast...

My husband and I stayed at the Gruene Apple B&B to attend a concert at Gruene Hall. Check in was easy and our room was decorated beautifully to fit the theme...ours was 1776. Tastefully done with a private balcony looking out upon the river. Breakfast was amazing. The time frame is only 1 hour - 8:30am to 9:30am - but...

My trip to Gruene was a spontaneous one. There was a group of us, I had 4 people with me and we literally drove up to see availability. I knew I could go to New Braunfels and get a room at a Hampton Inn or Hilton Garden Inn if I couldn't find rooms in Gruene, but it was worth a...

My husband and I stayed here several years ago and had an amazing experience. It was gorgeous and secluded, set apart from the hustle and bustle of Gruene. One could stay here and not look for entertainment elsewhere. There was a beautiful pool and jacuzzi, movie theater, billiards room, library, etc. A trip into Gruene was a little hike. We...

We are so disappointed to hear you were not pleased with your stay. My husband and I very recently purchased the property and had to make some decisions regarding a couple of the amenities. The pool/Jacuzzi you mentioned were required to be filled in due to certain ADA regulations and building codes that were not being met. It was determined...
