We have stayed at this Hotel twice. The best part is the Restaurant, with the clean white tablecloths, friendly service, and delicious food. We found the Parten Suite to be roomy and comfortable. However, there were only two pillows on the king sized bed, so fortunately we had brought a couple pillows of our own. I would also suggest bringing your own water bottles. There is a small fridge on the second floor, with a few random sodas for the guests, but no water bottles. The kitchen provided us with a bucket of ice when we requested it. This place provides a quiet and "homey" atmosphere when you're tired of the usual hotels.
I reserved a room for my parents birthdays and they had the best time. They said the grounds were beautiful and the lake was a nice surprise. They loved the decor of the room (The Antoinette) and thought the complimentary wine and cheese tasting was a delight.
The Villa at Messina Hof was an incredible experience. The service provided by the staff was top notch, including gourmet breakfast each day (one day we had crepes!). We are very lucky to have such a unique location and experience this close to Houston. Can't wait to go back!
Every time I walk into the Woodbine I feel like the clock has been turned back 100 years. Susan and her staff are wonderful, the food is terrific and the overall experience is not to be missed. Check in and imagine yourself in 1917...
Old 1904 hotel loaded with charm. Service and accomodations were excellent. The dining room was an added surprise. We had an excellent dinner. Susan the chef/owner puts her touch on everything. We will definitely be
My husband and I decided spur of the moment to stop over in Madisonville for the night so we search to find a hotel and found the Woodbine Hotel Listed. We had a small dog with us so that can be an issue with some hotels, but we were welcomed at the Woodbine. We had the most pleasant stay, and the breakfast in the morning was fantastic and I understand dinner is equally special. Gives us a reason to go back! So get off the freeway and stop in, you won't be disappointed.
We have always enjoyed staying at the Woodbine Hotel. It just seems to get better every visit! You will not find a more welcoming and accommodating staff. The food is fabulous, breakfast, lunch and dinner. The rooms are beautifully appointed and unique. A must visit!
I was on business between Dallas and Houston, and stayed at this delightful hotel. Everything was perfect - the room was big, comfortable, and beautifully decorated, the hotel was gorgeous, and the food was outstanding. Definitely will be back!
After reading reviews...I decided to book the Eagles Nest for our 12th year anniversary...so glad I did. We had a wonderful two night stay. Very peaceful and relaxing. The walk in shower...full hot tub in the room...the decor...the wrap around deck to enjoy the beautiful landscape and hear the birds singing every morning. Will definitely be back. The hostess was great and had a sweet spirit about her. The breakfast each morning was amazing!!
We came for Parent's Weekend at TAMU, and as that is a very busy weekend, ended up booking this gem of a B&B. The house is lovely, our room was fantastic. Such a lovely departure from staying in hotels. The distance is not far at all from College Station, and it was great to see more of the area than just the university area. We will definitely consider staying there again on a future visit to TAMU.
We were part of a group of eight. From the time we arrived till we left it was a very enjoyable stay. The winery tour was fun and informative. We enjoyed sitting on the patio for the wine and cheese reception, and were treated with very good service. Our room was immaculate and full of lovely antiques. Dinner was not rushed. I must say the champagne breakfast served the best crepes I have ever had. And the ladies did an excellent service. I emailed Jean Butler that I had left my phone charger, I had an immediate reply that she was mailing it to me. It has arrived. That sealed our feeling that Messina Hoff is five star business. Thank You
My wife, and 2 friends stayed there over Easter weekend and had an amazing time!!! Susan is such a great host and made us feel welcome from the minute we got there. Not a moment went by where our needs were not met. The food was absolutely the best part about staying here. The rattlesnake french toast was AMAZING and the Easter brunch has so many delicious items on it. I will definitely be booking here again and recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing weekend.
We stayed at the Villa during Texas A&M Family Weekend. This lovely place was a haven of peace and quiet. The room was well appointed. The antiques are lovely with an old world charm but never fear your free Wi-fi is near. We enjoyed dining at their vineyard restaurant. The food was exceptional. We visited the tasting room for a late night glass of wine with cheese which was included in our stay. We didn't get to go on the free vineyard tour but we hope to next year. I've already booked our return trip. Hurry don't miss out on this hidden gem in the heart of Bryan-College Station.
We recently stayed at Woodbine for the first time and loved every moment of it. Susan is the perfect hostess and all her staff are wonderful helpful people. The setting is peaceful beautiful and romantic. I highly recommend both the hotel and restaurant and we are looking forward to many more visits in the future!
The Villa at Messina Hof is a fantastic B&B that accommodates those who truly want to get away for a romantic weekend of peaceful relaxation, delicious food (during breakfast at the Villa & dinner at The Vintage House), and of course lots of Messina Hof wine! The wine tour and tasting (which is included with the stay) was fun & insightful. The Wine Bar (which is open until 11pm on Fridays & Saturdays) was another cozy venue to sample great wines & cheeses (a wine and cheese tasting is also included with the stay). The "Lancelot & Guinevere" suite, which has unique antique furnishings and a very large whirlpool tub, is the perfect respite after an activity-filled day. The staff were very friendly and helpful, always wanting to make our experience exceptional. My wife and I had our wedding ceremony & reception at Messina Hof, and we returned this trip for our 10 year anniversary! We didn't want to leave...
Loved our recent stay at this B&B! Service was extremely attentative but not hovering. Food was delicious, decor was tasteful and comfortable. Atmosphere is quiet, peaceful and off the beaten path. Highly recommend!
We spent two nights at the B&B, dined at the restaurant, took the tour, and enjoyed the wine bar. Can't say enough about the friendliness of the staff and the quality of the experience. It made for a lovely, romantic getaway and we can't wait to return! Highly recommended for wine lovers!
I've never noticed it before because it's off the highway but it's close enough so that's it simple to find. It was great to walk to the town square and the breakfast on site was PERFECT. Loved this place and comes highly recommended.
My wife and I had a wonderful stay at Messina Hof Winery and B & B. We stayed in the Thomas Jefferson room and it was great. The winery was fun and we had dinner there as well. Overall, it was a great stay. I would highly recommend this winery and B & B.
There was 11grounups in our group and we all loved the stay and will be staying here again! Susan and the staff were great and the food was great!!! :) In our group we were from Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana. Karen Griffith
