A lovely stay

5 on April 12, 2018

My husband and I stayed for two nights at Olivia mansion recently, and we can't wait to find time to return. We came across it while looking for another hotel in or near the New Braunfels area. I had never heard of it but we generally choose to stay in quirky, boutique hotels instead of generic ones. I'm so glad we discovered this gem! Breakfast each morning was fantastic, as is Melissa who serves you in the mornings. I also cannot say enough about the comfortable bed! Omg! We wished we could have brought it home with us. There isn't much to do in Seguin, but fortunately New Braunfels is just down the road and Olivia mansion is enough reason to go! We will be back.


Wonderful Anniversary stay

We had a wonderful sleep. The room and breakfast were in excellent condition and staff was very friendly. We have already told others about th our stay and recommended they give it a try.


This B&B made our weekend

5 on February 28, 2018

We were greeted when we arrive which this b&b usually doesn't have but it was nice. She gave us a mini tour of the beautiful building. And filled us in on details of the town. I think the best part was that we could come and go and as we needed with out feeling like we were disturbing any one. The breakfast was wonderful. I will say the staff make this B&B, the girls live their job and you defiantly know it!


Luxury and Romance

Private, luxurious, and so very Romantic!! We stayed in the Victoria suite. Every detail was perfect. The bed linens were lovely, the decor is beautiful. Downtown Seguin is so quaint and romantic. Perfect place to rekindle your relationship.


Our first getaway!

5 on December 04, 2017

This place was more than we expected. This trip was a first for my husband and I with no children and we couldn't have been more pleased with Olivia's Mansion. The breakfast is incredible, the rooms are perfect, and the inn keeper is very friendly and welcoming. We will be visiting here again and recommending this place to anyone headed to the area. Thank you so much for making our little getaway so perfect!


Delightful

I took my boyfriend for his 30th birthday, we stayed in the Madeline room and we absolutely loved it. Melissa was very helpful and recommended an excellent misuse in the area (keri). In addition she asked if we had any dietary restrictions for breakfast before hand. I would definitely be back stay, or possiblely rent the whole venue out. My only recommendation is that the owner add a Guest sign in book at the front, so everyone can sign it upon leaving. Thanks, Erika

Amazingly unique

5 on July 14, 2017

We stayed in Victoria's room , which had a queen size bed and a whirlpool bath tub in room . It was beautifully decorated and had a nice touch : two white robes . What made our stay truly unique was that we were the only guests that night . It was truly an experience we never forget- no ghosts just a beautiful mansion all to ourselves . Property manager was super nice and accommodating


My stay at Olivia Mansion

5 on July 12, 2017

Four of us recently stayed at the Olivia Mansion and I personally was blown away! So gorgeous and perfectly cozy offering several opportunities to stop and admire the decor and history. The breakfast that was serviced was way beyond my expectations. We are already talking about planning another trip to the Olivia Mansion only this time we would like to stay longer!

About the innkeepers

The Girling Family purchased The Mosheim Mansion in July of 2015. It was newly christened the Olivia Mansion, and immediately received a huge makeover. The previous owners utilized the place as a dog rescue; this is no longer the case. The restoration includes new flooring, restoration of existing hardwood floors, new paint colors though out the house, updated kitchen, additional antiques, new mattresses, new bedding, and many new room amenities. We think you will LOVE the changes!
