River Trip

4.0 on June 22, 2016

I would have rated some of these options such as service as outstanding but it would not let me click it. We had a few normal issues such as a clogged toilet during our stay and they were promptly fixed. Everyone there was courteous, friendly and I would stay there again any time. This is our second stay at this inn and we love the courtyard area the most!

We love to stay in places that are out of the ordinary and have stayed in many different historic hotels. The Prince Solms Inn was very unique, beautiful and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay and the hospitality of the innkeepers.


The perfect romantic birthday getaway

4.8 on May 16, 2016

We had a 50th birthday party on the patio in front of our haus, and the innkeeper helped with lovely flowers, wine and cheese. It was a great mix of history, lore, and modern comforts. It couldn't have been better.

Great last minute stop!

We had a wonderful stay here. We arrived before we cold check in and the gentleman at the desk let us leave our luggage in the room while it was getting cleaned up for us. He was very helpful telling us of things to do in the town and all the activities that were happening that weekend, We love our room! It was very clean and cozy. the only problem was that i could not talk my pregnant wife into climbing up to sleep in the loft:( .The breakfast was excellent the next morning. Thanks to the Prince Solms Inn for the weekend.

The Prince Solms Inn is our favorite B&B!

We truly enjoy the history of the property, with the main house (that includes a wonderful basement bar), cottages and Klein Haus all unique. Al and Nancy always make you feel welcomed and pampered!


Nostalgic

3.6 on February 16, 2016

Nostalgic location with impeccable attention to comfort. Entertained by a talented 3-piece Jazz band in the downstairs lounge that evening. Rooms were spacious and comfortable. Well worth the trip to New Braunfels to visit this timeless venue.


Best weekend away!

This was our third time to stay at the Prince Solms Inn, and as usual, it didnt disappoint! We were upgraded to a larger room at no extra charge. The breakfast was amazing, and the staff was very friendly. Even calling five minutes after we left to remind me I forgot some items in my room! Wolfgang had terrific jazz music which ended our night perfectly! Already counting the days til our next trip!
