Very Friendly staff and hosts

Love the antique finishes. Could be a little cleaner but the staff and hosts more than make up for it.


Great First Experience in a B&B

5 on April 14, 2014

I have been wanting to stay in a B&B for over 20 yrs and finally booked this one on a business trip. For my personality which is outgoing and curious I absolutely enjoyed it. Sheila the owner was very accessible and actually served and at breakfast with us in the morning. I thoroughly enjoyed the process of dining with others and meeting new people. The B&B itself was absolutely gorgeous. I stayed not at Cobb Lane but the other one they own the Hunseinger Mansion just down the street. The rooms were very clean and you could tell a lot of passion went in to decorating and maintaining the home. A lot of history in the house and a fantastic place to stay which is close to 5 points and tons of stuff to do and lots of places to eat. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I will definitely stay hear again when in town and fully recommend this to anyone staying in the area.

Innkeeper Response
HASSINGER DANIELS MANSION BED AND BREAKFAST, 2028 Highland Ave South, Birmingham, AL 35205 was delighted to meet this very competent and well traveled business woman who was trying out a B&B for first time. She was warm, friendly, a great guest to host. Thank you for the encouragement as we start up our 2nd BB in a recently restored 1898 Victorian Mansion with 10 guest rooms on the National Historic Registry. Please come often when your business brings you to Birmingham. Thank you for comiong.


Bridal Party

4.4 on April 09, 2014

I am getting married soon, and my bridal party and I stayed in Enchanting Turret, Hara's Loft and the Vulcan Vista. We very much enjoyed our stay. The rooms are clean and well kept. Sheila, the owner, is very attentive and accommodating. I would definitely stay again.

Innkeeper Response
A beautiful bride-to-be and her 8 bridesmaids came to visit and enjoyed our larger 2nd BB, Hassinger Daniels Mansion Bed and Breakfast. Enchanting Turrett accommodates 4 guests, Hera's Loft 2 guests, and Vulcan Vista 3 guests. They were a lot of fun, we enjoyed having them come. Thank you for taking time to do a review and come back again.


Charming Victorian B&B

4.0 on April 02, 2014

I loved the Inn and the owners. I loved that it was so peaceful and quite. The other families and couples staying there were nice. The cleaning crew could do a better job dusting and removing hair from linens such as the comforters and from the bath tub. I'm not sure the owners are aware of this as they have a cleaning crew that does this. I believe they said it was college students which explain the lack of attention. We still enjoyed the B&B and plan to go back again.

Innkeeper Response
We are pleased you came, enjoyed the Inn, and other guests. We will train our crew to be more careful in their cleaning. Thank you for telling us.


1 night in Birmingham

4.2 on March 31, 2014

I had a lovely stay at this B&B in Birmingham. It was a great location, within walking distance from lots of restaurants and shops. The rooms were very clean and my bed was very comfortable. Nice, spacious bathroom as well. I very much enjoyed breakfast the next morning. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Birmingham, much more personal than a hotel.

Innkeeper Response
"I would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Birmingham, much more personal than a hotel". What a wonderful compliment you have honored us with. Thank you.
