Lovely Stay at Victorian Bed and Breakfast

5 on April 14, 2015

My girlfriend and I recently stayed a night at the Cobb Lane Bed and Breakfast. Though we were only in town for a quick getaway trip, our stay in this lovely house made it feel like home. Ira, one of the owners, was incredibly helpful from the moment we arrived. He showed us around the place and offered tips on local dining and sightseeing. Breakfast featured a packed house of 12 people from all over the world. We were all able to bond and share our stories - a memory I won't soon forget. Ira and Sheila deserve all the success this bed and breakfast has brought them - and will undoubtedly continue to bring them!


Getaway

We actually stayed at the Hassinger Daniels Mansion.


A Gracious Place

4.0 on March 31, 2015

The rooms are lovely, clean and well tended. But the real reason to stay at a Sheila Lane B&B is the breakfast. The food is very good, surpassed only by the breakfast hospitality. Ms. Lane joined us and gracefully led the pleasant, lively conversation; joining in was comfortable. We truly enjoyed learning about Ms. Lane's other guests.


Zebra room stay

4.2 on March 25, 2015

The only thing I wish I knew ahead of time about the Zebra room is that it was a basement-type room. Basements freak me out a little and I think I would have been more comfortable in the house.


Will stay again

We had a wonderful time and will stay here again when visiting Birmingham. Can not beat the value and charm.


Great place. Owner abrupt and inflexible.

3.0 on March 11, 2015

The hotel itself is very charming. It is clean and well located. The service you will get is absolute minimum once they have your money.Ira is a warm fellow who serves a very thin breakfast. During the day, there is no management on site unless called to their mobile. When I called to complain about the freezing temperature in my room, I was asked if I wanted to find another hotel instead. I don't feel this is the right approach in the hospitality business.


Great location for Stay

4.4 on February 25, 2015

We stayed at the B&B for the Mercedes Marathon. The location was perfect for getting to the race and our friends to cheer us on in several locations along the way. Price was very good and it was CLEAN. The Inn was quiet for the most part, but it is in a lively district for entertainment as well. We felt safe as it is across from one of the local police depts. I would most def would stay there again!


Great place to stay

4.4 on February 23, 2015

Great place to stay, very great food and service. Would recommend it to anyone.


Burmingham B&B

5 on February 12, 2015

My husband and I stayed at the Daniels Mansion, Mrs Chaffin's newest location. Everything about it was lovely and we defiantly enjoyed our stay. It was welcoming, peaceful, cozy; the water was hot, the bed was comfortable, and our breakfast was delicious. We are very pleased with our decision to stay here!!


Happy in Birmingham

5 on February 12, 2015

We had a lovely visit for our anniversary full of fun history and parlor games to add to the experience. Within walking distance to active 5 points area. Serene, quiet room with large bath was exactly what we wanted.
