Wow! This property is incredible. We stayed in the Broken Arrow room and our friends were next door in the Wild West room. Each of these rooms had a separate porch, and private bath. Each was furnished in their respective theme, in every detail. The property is 3 floors. The lobby, office, library, dining and kitchen are on the first...

Great "bed & breakfast" type hotel with nice amenities and beautiful view of the Guadalupe River. The rooms are comfortable and nicely appointed with good sized bathrooms. The breakfast is awesome! Definitely made for a good start to the day. The location is perfect if you are interested in taking in all that Gruene has to offer. Everything is within...

I booked a room so we could spend the evening at Gruene hall. Pleasant atmosphere, comfy bed and within walking distance of the hall. What more could you ask! The staff was pleasant, helpful and went out of their way to make us feel welcome.

One of the best located yet quietly removed lodging spots in Gruene. Perfectly apportioned large guest rooms. Walking distance to everything. Stunning drop off stairs to private seating area down on the river. Owners are top notch folks! Great space to chill and relax, be quiet, or walk and play.

We had a group at the hotel and each room's decoration and theme was so creative! The owner's helped us in many ways to plan our time with our friends. The wine was good in the evening, but the snacks(trash) needed to be better. The breakfast was superb!! Everyone had a great time!

We were only there for one night but if we had realized what a great place this is, we would have planned to stay longer. I really hope to get back there and stay longer next time. The staff were friendly and helpful and everything was very clean. A real gem!

Quick trip to Gruene for mother-daughter time. Did some research on TripAdvisor for places to stay that was within walking distance and came across Gruene River Hotel & Retreat. We absolutely loved it! Very comfortable rooms, convenient location, delicious breakfast and a scenic view of the river. Will definitely be staying again!
