We only stayed for a couple of days. The grounds and garden are very nice. The interior of the house could use a little TLC. Our room was adequate. The breakfasts were very nice. My only real complait was the extra romantic package that I purchased. The flowers were mediocre, the chocloate cake tasted like a cold molten chocolate cake and the champagne was an almond flavored champagne. Not something that I would have serve my worst enemy. A dry or demi-sec California sparkling wine might have been a better chioce.

We had an opportunity for a weekend getaway and chose Bissell House based on their advertisement in the Camerata Pacifica program. It was, for the most part, a delightful experience. Rooms are comfortable and quiet - and even the smallest room, despite its quirks, has a beguiling quaintness with the mini porch/sunroom. The overall ambience is great - a nice library, sitting room with a nice fire, tea available any time. The afternoon desserts, ranging from chocolate chip cookies to lemon cake, were quite good. Weekend breakfasts are also quite nice. Ours included a frittata, roasted potatoes, fresh fruit (artfully cut and arranged), and muffins. We had a bit of a problem contacting someone after hours when we had a problem with our room, but all was made right the next day, and the owners have assured us that the after hours contact issue has now been corrected..

The Bissell House is a beautiful, comfortable house with every amenity but with an old fashioned hospitality. It is perfectly located for every experience within LA and its surroundings. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer.

Great location, beautiful property, fantastic room...a very positive experience overall. I did think it was a tad overpriced and the breakfast was disappointing - two scrambled eggs, one croissant, and some yogurt. This was our first bed and breakfast experience in the Pasadena area. We would definitely come back but will probably want to try some other places in the area first

We loved the personalized service at the Bissell House. The ground floor rooms were perfect for hanging out and talking. We had a catered dinner at the house and it was a wonderful and relaxing event. The house is gorgeous.
