Charming B&B!

5 on August 26, 2018

Love this place! My husband and I went to celebrate our 22 wedding anniversary and had a great time. Breakfast is delicious! We love the antique collection, this place is really charming. We are planning to go back with some friends.


It was awesome the room and the atmosphere was absolutely amazing. I will definitely tell my friends about it will come back again.

Great experience!

Every little detail in that mansion is beyond amazing and just WOW, from the rooms to the customer service it was an all around great experience, so much that we decided to get a head start and book another stay for Labor Day weekend to enjoy more than just one night there this time around. We don’t love too far from there but this place made us feel like we were on a vacation. Thank you again for everything!


Amazing Breakfast

4.6 on July 02, 2018

We really enjoyed our night at Olivia Mansion. We had the place to ourselves so it was quiet and relaxing. The bed was a little too soft for our liking but the room was clean. The breakfast in the morning was so delicious. Melissa was super friendly and she was good to make sure we had everything we needed.


Great place

4.6 on June 22, 2018

This was a great place for us. Our room was nice, up to standard and during our stay we did not feel like we were in Seguin. It’s always cool and unique to stay at an old, historic home. Would recommend it to anyone coming into to town that has a bigger budget and wants a unique place to stay.


Great Relaxing Beautiful House

We go tot spend the night in this great house with some great staff for breakfast. The room are so nice and very relaxing. we got to tour the entire house and hope so say in all the rooms. The Inn Keeper and House keeper were wonderful. We got to spend some time with them and they were great. Highly recommend and hope you get to spend time with staff like we did.


Absolutely lovely

This was my first visit to a B&B, and every single thing about our stay was wonderful. We stayed in the Madeline room, which has an amazing tub. The decor is gorgeous, the beds are super cozy, and the breakfast was delicious. I honestly can't say enough nice things about our stay.


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

4.2 on April 09, 2018

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!

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!
