We really enjoyed staying here and have no regrets. The room was quiet, spacious and tastefully decorated. The turntable was fun. We loved the turquoise tiled bathroom. The garden is beautiful. However, this is an expensive hotel and there are few small things that would make the room worthy of its high price tag, mostly to do with sleep quality....

Thank you for your nigh marks and we apologize that you did not fully enjoy your stay with us. While the Pool Bungalows can be great for their openness and light, we regret that the light was an issue for your sleep and that we were not able to remedy the issue during the course of your stay. Thank you...

I cant begin to say how amazing this boutique property is. From the moment I contacted Kaleigh in reservations to the time I arrived and was greeted by Scott, no detail was missed. The pool is a perfect and quaint oasis, with a perfectly curated sound track. The drinks poolside were stellar. My room was spacious and perfectly clean. I...

Spencer, thank you so much for your review and we are so delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us. We hope to see you poolside again soon!

This is a very uniquely beautiful hotel. Pool is very cool with a lusted after soundtrack. Staff are incredibly helpful and attentive. Very expensive, especially at weekends, but worth every penny. We did not stay in the rooms which you have to access via the pool, so can't comment on this but I think I would find this frustrating. Record...

Hotel Saint Cecilia is an unadvertised gem of a hotel with a delightful character. Three couples visited the quaint boutique establishment and we all agreed it was a wonderful experience. The owners of the converted old house have built additional rooms which sits on a beautiful piece of large oak tree property. The inviting landscape is perfectly manicured and offers...

As an anniversary treat, my husband and I decided to visit Austin, where he went to school. I'd never been there, and when I checked out boutique hotels, Hotel Saint Cecilia came right up. A hotel that quotes William Burroughs, Leonard Cohen and Patti Smith is my kind of hotel. A peek at the suites and bungalows showed funky but...

Went to Austin for a much needed vacay and came across Saint Cecelia via some blog reviews. I checked it out and loved the vibe of it so much that I immediately booked a stay there for two nights. Upon arriving at the hotel, I felt like I was walking into an oasis. The grounds have a very Los Angeles/Chateau...

The bar patio was right outside my bedroom window in the "big house." Management was polite and I was promised the "party" would be over at 11:00. Didn't happen. Had to leave the hotel and find another near midnight just to get sleep. I guess the bar tab was more attractive than my room rate. Bad layout I guess. Nice...

We sincerely apologize that you were unable to enjoy your time with us. The lounge is generally quiet and we are sorry that was not the case the evening you joined us.

We were welcomed by the staff here who knew our names when we arrived and told me happy birthday (they had asked my husband when he made the reservations if there was a special occasion). Our room was gorgeous but comfortable with a private patio overlooking the courtyard. There were cookies waiting for us on our table, they give you...

I thought this hotel was a very nice boutique hotel in Austin. Here's how my visit breaks down: PROS: Best part of this hotel is that it gives you a resort-feel in the middle of a city. The rooms are nicely decorated and the grounds are very enjoyable. Each room has a record player and you can borrow vinyls from...
