We stayed at the Gruene Apple Inn for two nights recently. The stay was great. The breakfast is spectacular! But a word of caution. We booked late and they could not keep us in the same room both nights. The second night we stayed in the Victorian room. DO NOT book this room unless you are at least 6'-6", or...

We stayed here while visiting Gruene for a concert at Gruene Hall. First the location for that is perfect, it's a very short walk to the Hall and surrounded by a few cute little shops. The town of Gruene is all adorable, there are plenty of unique shops, restaraunts and live country music. We really enjoyed the visit!! The Gruene...

Nice place, large for a B&B. We stayed in the "through the looking glass" room over valentines weekend 2015. When I booked it I couldn't tell from the pictures how much Alice in wonderland decor there was. Almost felt like a little girls room, but it was ok. No patio in this first floor room, so I would recommend to...

we wanted to stay someplace special for Valentine's weekend and had heard of this place in Gruene. We got one of the last rooms available, staying in 202, "Room with a View". The pictures did not begin to do justice to the wonderful accommodations! We had a balcony overlooking the pool and river, a fireplace and a comfy king size...

Great clean property. Far enough away to keep away from all the live bands noise and yet close enough to walk to everything. Hotel has the be the nicest in the area, but perhaps the priciest. Non the less, we really enjoyed it for the one night we stayed. Hope to go back again. Breakfast was awesome!!! No kids allowed.

We spent New Years in Gruene . The Inn was very clean and a great location and walking distance to Gruene Hall and everything around the area. The breakfast was good, bed was comfortable. The rooms are themed and pretty funky I might add. The Inn is really more like a hotel that has been decorated to look like an...

We just returned from spending two nights in Gruene Tx. We stayed at the Gruene Apple Bed and Breakfast with another couple. This was our first stay and it was great. I would have to say this place is a cross between a hotel and a bed and breakfast. All of the rooms are themed. The place was very clean...

Such a special place is the Gruene Apple Bed and Breakfast. We had a wonderful two days there. I loved that they have a keen sense of detail in decorating and architecture. It was wonderful to just hang out in the great room. The fireplace was wonderful to look at. The first night we had wine and snacks. Then we...

We spent this past weekend at the Gruene Apple Inn. This place is great! Beautiful facility. The place is very peaceful and our room was clean. The innkeepers and staff are friendly and helpful.

My daughter and I spent one night here and really enjoyed our stay. The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars is because of the hard bed, but the great breakfast, friendly staff and good location make up for the bed. Easy access to town, we even walked to dinner.
