We absolutely love Messina Hof! It was a great little romantic getaway. Just what we needed! The only thing I would suggest to improve would be the breakfast part of the stay. There was not much of variety of options. However everything from the cleanliness of the room and winery and staff were amazing. Very friendly and attentive. The pictures of the rooms does not do any justice, they are a must see/stay to really be able to take in the old Victorian beauty.

Such a great and unique B&B at a beautiful winery. I loved the acomdations we received (free wine tour, tasting, cheese plate, delicious breakfast). Only bummer was the restaurant being closed for most of our stay! Our wine tour guide was also a bit cranky :/. I've been on a tour before with a younger blonde college student who was much friendlier and knowledgeable. Overall wonderful stay-at-home thank you!

Nice Inn and winery close to College Station. Was a great start to our tour of the Texas Wine country. Friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere. Loved the antique setting and decor of the Inn and rooms.

We were celebrating our 5th year anniversary and had a wonderful time. It was over Easter weekend so it was very quiet and we almost had the place to ourselves. We will go back !!!!

It was a pretty B&B. The main problem was the smell of the "lake" -aka retention pond. We were looking forward to sitting on our patio with a glass of wine but couldn't stand the smell. Breakfast was also a disappointment - muffins, fruit, yogurt and undercooked sausage and biscuit. The glass of wine and cheese tray at the wine bar was very nice.

Check-in was confusing (no one was there) The lady who handles breakfast is not very personable. The breakfast wasn't great, coffee was empty and food was mediocre Bed is very hard and not comfortable Service was slow We liked Michael and Katy The atmosphere and grounds were pleasant The wine is good Overall, we would stay there again.

This website will not allow me to say Outstanding on cleanliness and dining! The rooms at Messina Hof are tired and dated, in need of a freshening and facelift. For the prices they had on the website, I was expecting more. The free tour, tasting and wine cheese plate was nice (even though they only had half the cheeses advertised). The complimentary breakfast was quite lovely. For the price/value, probably would not make it in my top picks.
