We recently stayed a week at Gladstone Manor during a conference at the nearby Kansas City Convention Center. Although I was working that week, the time we spent at Gladstone Manor amounted to 7 days of refreshment. Our hosts, the Rogers, were thoughtful and accommodating to the end, even providing us one morning with coffee-to-go and a delicious pastry when we found ourselves running late. Our room was tidy with lovely appointments and a comfortable bed. Breakfast every morning was tasty and served in quiet elegance. The showers were hot and the towels invigorating. And the grounds surrounding the home were a bonus, along with a library of interesting volumes that included photos and Kansas City history. All this at an extraordinary value. There is so much to see and hear and do in Kansas and Gladstone B and B is a great place to find your rest in between.

The Rogers, owners of this B&B, have a real treasure of a property on their hands! And the way they go out of their way for their guests proves they know it. Highly recommended.

The home and grounds are lovely and the hosts are quite friendly. However, we were not comfortable at Gladstone Manor. Firstly, the location is in a deteriorating neighborhood which felt unsafe. Secondly, our room choice (the billiard's suite) displaced the hosts' adult son which made us feel like we were intruding. Thirdly, the furniture, furnishings, and linens were ordinary. Overall, we felt like we were staying at our great aunt's house rather than at a B&B.

The innkeepers Veda and Bruce, were wonderful and very down to earth, they made you feel right at home. We stayed in the Billard room and we wished we could have stayed longer then one night to enjoy all it had to offer. The breakfast was filling and very good. Check out the garden and the pond also it is beautiful abd peaceful. We will be back, it is the best kept secret in Kansas City.
