Very Authentic

4.8 on July 22, 2016

We were a bit put off by the condition of their gardens in front of the house. The house does need some restoration on the outside but that did not impact the lovely interior which was perfect for the era of its construction. The Innkeeper was gracious and his knowledge of the home's history was given with devotion. When we learned that the Innkeepers also owned LaBinnah Bistro, we know the quality of the bistro would be a reflection of the Inn and we were right!

Love this B and B!

Great place to stay

The house was wonderful, rooms nice & comfortable. I was disappointed, thought there would be gardens to walk in, but the gardens that were in the front of the house were nice. The breakfast was out of this world. Felt we were having breakfast in a fancy restaurant. I would highly recommend this place to stay.

great experience!

This was our first ever experience with a bed and breakfast and we absolutely enjoyed this. The inn keepers were so nice and helpful. Really enjoyed learning about the history of them home they shared with us. Breakfast was fantastic! We will definately be returning our next trip to Hannibal. Thank you helping make our anniversary so special. Matt and Jenna Noah. Wentzville, MO

to clarify the dining experience, if one walks a block down the street to Labinnah Bistro then you will have meals far exceeding your expectations as the two meals we had there were superb.

Perfect Respite

4.6 on May 07, 2012

My wife and I had been on the road two days and needed something "unmotel." So we found a room was a available at the Garden House B & B and booked it easily online. From the moment we were greeted through the farewell, we felt completely at ease and thoroughly enjoyed the quiet house and lovely flower gardens. And after nearly two weeks in New Orleans, we could not believe that we scored our best meal of the whole trip at LaBinnah Bistro, one block from the inn. Amazing.

Special Birthday Getaway

I also booked a room at this b&b last minute. I was looking for a romantic birthday getaway. The host, Chris, was very accommodating with my reservation. He gave us a history of the house as well as a tour. He was very helpful in suggesting places for us to see and explore in Hannibal. His restaurant, LaBinnah, was excellent and I would recommend the stuffed chicken breast. The room we stayed in was very comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. It would be nice to have had a couple selections for breakfast, the only item I would have changed was the chocolate muffin for a blueberry. I would recommend to my friends stay here. Thanks Chris for the memorable experience!

Hannibal at its best

The room was beautiful, decked out with period pieces from the Mark Twain era. Each of the rooms is furnished uniquely -- our had a canopy bed. The house itself is on the old "Millionaires' Row" and is high above the river. The owner "Chris" is congenial and has his head full of the history of Hannibal which he is willing to share. His introduction when we checked in provided the lay of the land. His discussions at breakfast (wholesome and tasteful) resulted in another tour of the main floor with insights to the various object d'art of local artists that favored the walls and presentation points. Recommending this one to friends.

Weekend in Hannibal

4.6 on May 16, 2011

Our stay at the Garden House Bed & Breakfast was as lovely as it was accomodating. The service was exceptional, the food was delicious, and the location was great. Not much of a view, but all-in-all a very comfortable, affordable, intimate stay.
