Thank you for our excellent experience at A Yellow Rose. We loved our beautiful rooms and the lovely neighborhood! The tub was wonderful. Your attention to detail is much appreciated!

We stumbled upon Dolores Del Rio going "the back way" to the River Walk, and since you had recommended it, decided to have dinner there! WHAT A TREAT! The meal, ambiance, and service were fantastic. Little did we out-of-towners know that massive, noisy crowds were just around the

Again, thanks so much!

Thank you very much for making my recent visit to San Antonio so special. The room was exquisitely designed and efficiently arranged. I particularly appreciated having the WI-FI access to research places I wanted to go or had just been for a more complete look. Your information packet was very thorough; good job on that!

I wanted to let you know that I got quite a bit of Christmas shopping done in San Antonio, both downtown and in that wonderful shopping plaza you told me about, Alamo Quarry. Future guests who want to shop should definitely check that place out. Great shops and a movie!
It was lovely, thanks again.

A sampling of guest reviews from
?Although called a "B&B," "A Yellow Rose" has exterior entrances and plays out more like a private retreat for each guest. The room was large and beautifully furnished. Parking is provided. As well, the King William District is, I think, the best of San Antonio: close to downtown but also its own world. In all, "A Yellow Rose" is a much better option than, say, staying at one of the downtown hotels.? April 2006

We had the opportunity to stay at a Yellow Rose B&B twice for business travel to San Antonio. The neighborhood is lovely and quiet (much quieter than the Riverwalk hotels), but very close to the heart of the downtown area. Great neighborhood restaurants and the B&B itself is wonderful. We've seen 4 of the rooms connected to the main house and all are comfortable with their own particular charm. I would recommend this B&B to all and leisure alike. April 2006

We stayed here for a quick getaway to celebrate our two year anniversary. Our room was larger than expected, with a spacious separate bathroom. The location couldn't be beat -- A Yellow Rose is surrounded by beautiful historic homes and is within walking distance to the Riverwalk. We chose the full breakfast option and were delighted -- there was more than enough to satisfy both of us. I have stayed at a number of bed and breakfasts and this one is my favorite. March 2006

Thanks so much; we had a fantastic time, and really enjoyed your b&b! Everything was great, and I can't think of one recommendation that I would make! Thanks again, and we hope to be back again!

Deb and Kit,
I wanted to send you a note of thanks for the wonderful weekend that Kathy and I had at your B&B. We really love the B&B experience, and y'all helped keep that spirit alive. The food was fantastic, service was very friendly, and the recommendations for local flare were right on the money. The overall package that we had was great for our anniversary and Kathy really appreciated it. The location is excellent with just the right amount of walk time along the river for a great experience walking into downtown. I think that we will be seeing more of you in the future!! Take care!

"Where do you stay when you have four couples and a family of four traveling together in San Antonio? A YELLOW ROSE B&B!
Thank you so much for such a wonderful stay. Our family visited San Antonio for my Mom's 80th birthday. I was lucky to find such a friendly, cozy place that could accommodate all of us, especially the kids, with all the comforts of home. Each room was unique and very comfortable. Everything was just perfect, and the special touches (refrigerator, goodies, coffee pot, coffees/teas, juices, soda, area info booklets, maps, beautiful furnishings, separate porches) - you can't get that kind of comfort at a hotel. It was great! We'll definitely be back again. It exceeded my family's expectations and everyone had such a great time.

Hello Yellow Rose! 
Thank you so much for the delightful stay in your warm, cozy home! It was much needed. And I am so thrilled to connect with another "savvy traveler". 
Again, great food, soft sleep, and such kind people--you made my weekend wonderful--thanks!

Dear Deb,
I've been meaning to write since we got back to thank you again for making our stay in San Antonio so wonderful. We were there Nov. 10 to 13 at "Bordeaux". I seem to have been congratulating myself for finding the perfect B&B and neglected to let you know how we felt. Indeed, we couldn't have asked for more. It was a wonderful room, so much so that we wanted to spend more time there than sightseeing. So comfortable, so attractive and so homey. You anticipated our every need/question. Many thanks again.

What a wonderful, relaxing experience...we felt so at home and so very comfortable - it is obvious that you and your husband have taken a great deal of extra care to have your guests feel so "special" - so many of your extras were so appreciated and not found in many nice B&Bs or inns that we have been to: the feather topper, refrigerator and goodies, coffee pot/coffees/teas/juices/yogurts, the numerous booklets [loved the walking tour of King William area], maps, beautiful furnishings, separate porches and oh-the bathrobes! All such a nice touch.
Your restaurant recommendations were right on - also, you certainly excelled in the breakfasts - what a wonderful treat...We are planning our return already!

Dear Deb and Kit,
We just wanted to thank you so much for such a wonderful stay. It exceeded what we expected and was so much like being at home. We were visiting San Antonio for our first anniversary along with another couple celebrating theirs. They stayed at a hotel and each night I felt so lucky to be going back to such a cozy and comfortable room with all the touches of staying with a friend. Although I've never stayed anywhere that left us fresh baked blueberry bread after a long day of sightseeing. It was great! Everything was just perfect... We'll definitely be back again.
P.S. It was so quiet and private that we actually never saw anyone...Another nice thing [privacy] that you'll never see in a crowded busy hotel.
Thanks again so much.

"My husband and I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful night we had at the Yellow Rose. It was our first anniversary and the stay was blissful. We hope to return every anniversary as a tradition since we had such a wonderful time on our first. The yellow Rose was so Romantic and beautiful. 
I also have to comment on the wonderful most delicious breakfast you made for us it just added to the beauty and perfection of the night I will remember forever."
Thank You,

"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Yellow Rose. We're still dreaming of the wonderful breakfasts being served to our room. What a wonderful treat not to have to get dressed and be presentable before breakfast. We had all the amenities of staying in one's home [actually better; I've never stayed anywhere where the host brings breakfast to my room] with none of the responsibility of spending time with the hosts. Our time was our own and it was wonderful. We hated to leave. Thank you so much for a wonderful time."
