Spent the morning at the BMW shop. My appointment was for 1 0am, I arrived on time and my bike went into the shop at 10:10am. The bike came out road tested at 11:00am. In the mean time I had wonderful conversations with their friendly staff and time passed so quickly it was a shame to go.

Historical Traveler Reviews Garth Woodside Mansion Estate Hannibal
This was our first experience at a B&B and I am so glad we chose the Garth Mansion. It was the most beautiful and romantic place for our Valentine getaway. John, Julie and Sean are the most gracious of hosts, they are so welcoming and friendly, you feel at home the minute you walk through the door. We had the John Garth room and it was amazing, the hot tub was wonderful, the fireplace, the feather bed... you really do forget the hustle and bustle of life at home and that was the sole purpose for us being here.
My partner and I were in town for a wedding. I'm from the area so am pretty in the loop. When I started having allergy issues staying with family who smoke, we decided to check out B&Bs in town. I'd heard so much about Garth when the previous owners initially turned it into a B&B, I wanted to stop by to check it out. We did not stay here and this is why.
My husband and I chose Garth to celebrate our 2nd anniversary because it had been ranked so highly. We have stayed in numerous B&B's before, and have never been so disappointed. We payed $190 to stay in one of their "honeymoon suites" during the week- it was a splurge for us. The bottom floor of the mansion is beautiful- but our stay left much to be desired. First, our jacuzzi tub was merely a tub of hot water, since the jets barely worked. Then, the "gourmet" breakfast consisted of fresh fruit, a muffin, and for the main course- sausage and scrambled eggs with cheese. These things would not have been a big deal, but when my husband and I let the owner know that we were slightly disappointed in our stay- she literally yelled at us and told us that we did not appreciate quality. She cited the complimentary toothbrushes as something that should have made us excited, and told us that we should have appreciated the fancy, imported cheese on the eggs. She also hung up on me and my husband twice, and was very rude. I must say that next time- I will save my $190 and will buy my own $1.50 toothbrush, and will scramble my own eggs. This inn was a big disappointment- but even worse was the mean inn-owner! Her attitude put a severe damper in our anniversary trip. Hannibal is great- just stay somewhere else!
This was a wonderful experience from the time we first saw Garth Mansion. The room was great as was breakfast and Julie and John along with their son Sean were all great - they couldn't do enough for us. The best experience I have ever had in a B & B. Julie also advised us where to eat in Hannibal a great little place called La Binnah (Hannibal spelled backwards) and it was also great.
Wonderful history and great historic mansion
My husband and I stayed here a few years ago; we were lucky to get the Mark Twain room with the actual bed Mark Twain used when he visited the original owners many years ago. My husband still talks about it as he is a Twain fan. The only drawback was the lack of a good restaurant nearby. I highly recommend it if you want a quiet and enjoyable weekend.
The best ever bed and breakfast
This was the best place I ever stayed at. Very friedly people, lovely rooms, wonderful food. The nicest people I've met. Five star out of five
Great Weekend at the Garth Mansion
My stay at the Garth was extremely enjoyable. My room was beautiful and filled with antiques. It is a pleasure to stay in such nice accommodations. The owners and staff made the stay very enjoyable. They served excellent food and provided good advice on local attractions and restaurants. The surroundings were well maintained and quiet for a restful stay.
I had the great pleasure of visiting the Garth Mansion in Hannibal, MO during a recent pass through of the area on business. Wow! I am not one to choose B&B's on a regular basis, but the reputation and incredible word of mouth I have head on the Mansion drew me in. While the decor is definatly mansion-caliber, the hospitality of the innkeepers was down-home and friendly. The breakfast was perfection...the perfect start to a busy day! I have since recommended and referred several friends and family members back JUST for the stayover...the breakfast...the cleanliness...the conversations...the good times. Garth Rocks!
Kansas City person is crazy!!!!
Not sure what this person's problem is, but we stay here twice a year.
More than enough to eat, and there are wonderful chocolate chip cookies that are warm and waiting for you when you check in. Fruit cup in the morning is the freshest fruit you will ever eat, and if they did not get enough to eat it is their own fault, there is always extra for those 'big' eaters. Previous guest must have been having a bad day; it is impossible to have a bad meal or visit at the Garth. Some people are just not meant to be guests at B&B's.
My advice: go somewhere else
i rate this the worst b&b experience we have had. after looking at the website, we had high hopes. room was $160 and was miniature, the bed was uncomfortable, air conditioning was poor. but the worst was the chintzy breakfast: a small fruit cup and a smaller quiche. all of us seated around the table kept waiting for the next course and realized THAT WAS IT! owner "entertained" the breakfast group with tales of how great the place was but worse, he speculated on how he could get guests to help out by working on the place! sorry i chose it. we've stayed in many more gracious places.
