Hassenger Daniels was terrific

4.8 on September 13, 2014

We stayed at the Hassinger Daniels Mansion of the Cobb Lane B&B. It is a really delightful house with many interesting items adorning the rooms and common areas. The sculpted carousel horses were especially interesting to see. Excellent breakfast!


Great B&B

5 on September 09, 2014

I went to Birmingham to see a concert. Sheila, was very sweet and accommodating. The trip was great.


Circumstances?

3.2 on September 07, 2014

I must start in saying that the B&B was a lovely place and that we had some circumstances that may have been unusual. We were traveling across the Sourh after taking our daughter back to college and planned to stay in Birmingham so we could meet friends there for dinner. The restaurant was in High Point so Cobb Lane seemed like a perfect location and property. We arrived after 6pm, but spoke to the innkeeper on the phone who had arranged to leave our key. Everything was great until we returned from a great dinner. We woke about 3am sweltering. We couldn't locate any way to adjust the temperature in our room or downstairs. We also couldn't find anything written in our room addressing climate control. My husband looked around outside our room and the thermostat control was located in a locked box, set at 76 degrees. It was a particularly hot and steamy night in Birmingham, but nonetheless it was so uncomfortable that we got up, took a cold shower, and left just after 6am opting to skip breakfast (which sounded like it was going to be divine). This made it difficult to use star ratings for "Dining" since we didn't eat here.


Great

Me and my daughter had the best over night stay we drove up there for a concert from Mississippi and I had reservation and got a free upgrade the bed was very comfortable and the room was very unique the owner was a very sweet lady and we enjoyed talking to her at breakfast, the breakfast was very delightful and delicious sorry my daughter didn't eat much she woke up with a tummy ach but I enjoyed it very much .


Wonderful

5 on September 04, 2014

A friend and I decided to stay at Cobb Lane for her bachelorette weekend. We were offered an upgrade to stay in the Enchanting Turret room at the Hassinger Daniels Mansion. The room was perfect (as was the whole mansion). There were so many small details of the house that made it so grand. Mrs. Sheila was so sweet and offered great advice as to where to eat and what to do while we were in Birmingham. The location is within walking distance of several amazing restaurants (I will recommend Ocean, we had AMAZING service there). We only made it to one breakfast because we went to church on one morning. However, after eating with the other guests the following morning, I wish we had made it to both! It was very special to talk with the other guests as well as with Mrs. Sheila. The food (and coffee) was also delicious. I will definitely plan another trip to stay!


Great stay at one of my favorite houses in Birmingham!

Great stay at one of my favorite houses in Birmingham!


Beautiful Home

3.0 on August 27, 2014

Loved my room and the house, but there were several details that should have been automatic in this price of room. Request soap and extra wash cloths because there was no soap and only 1 wash cloth. You are on your own getting your luggage up to the room...I was on the 3rd floor and I'm over 60 yrs. old. I was disappointed in the food served for breakfast. Was expecting a big Southern breakfast since this was a historical Southern mansion built in the late 1890's instead we were served a light breakfast w/o any type of choice. It would be a beautiful place to be married, but would present problems for a caterer with a large wedding because of the very small kitchen.. It would be best served for a small intimate wedding either on the grounds in the gazebo or in the front parlor. The gazebo is spectacular!


B & B in the city

4.0 on August 21, 2014

It was a very cool Bed and Breakfast in a trendy area of Birmingham within walking distance from some great restaurants. My wife and I were in the Camelot room which is in the front. It was very loud...and to be expected because of the location of the B&B. Very understandable. We did have a bit of an issue with it being so warm in that room. The rest of the house seemed to be cool and comfortable while ours was pretty warm. We got back late enough from dinner that we didn't want to disturb anyone. We had an oscillating table fan that helped. The décor was great...need to work on the circulation in that room. I'm assuming most of the other rooms were cool and comfortable. Great breakfast, friendly host, and a great experience overall.


Great Break in a, Long Drive Home

5 on August 14, 2014

This was my second stay at the Hassinger Daniels mansion and it was wonderful as expected. Decorated beautifully, very clean and beds were as comfortable as could be. My sister and I stayed on the 3rd floor and loved it. We had a large room, it was the perfect temp for sleeping at night and dark enough for a light sleeper to not be awakened by light or outside sounds. Breakfast was delicious and the coffee was perfect!


Very nice place to stay!

4.8 on August 06, 2014

House is beautifully decorated, rooms are comfortable, hosts are very congenial and knowledgeable about area. House is very short safe walk to great restaurants and entertainment.
