The menu is blah. I ordered a tuna steak sandwich rare. It was supposed to be grilled but it came out blanched. It was served with tartar sauce, lettuce and tomato. You would think they'd serve it on some other bun with different garnishes, not ones typically served with hamburgers.
Stopped here for dinner one night with Mrs. Camper and some friends. The place was definitely hopping. Dinner was good, service was friendly, and the bar appeared well-stocked. Interesting bit of history with the building too (an old brothel).
I took my husband for a weekend getaway. It was his fiftieth birthday. I've always loved Hannibal and my husband being the character he is would appreciate staying the night in a converted house of ill-fame.
The staff were excellent and exceptionally personable. We spent the night in a second story suite (all the b&b rooms are upstairs). The hot tub, sitting room and bed were immaculate. Only drawback, the view of the river is limited by railroad tracks and trains can be a bit distracting.
The restaurant was excellent. We had a light supper and drinks. Everyone was wonderful. The people are easy to talk with (we met many new people and fellow travellers). PS..the dining room is very romantic: candles, cloth linens, the works.
The breakfast was also exceptional. It is fresh and made to order, ours was even prepared by the owner.
All and all a memorable experience and a trip well worth while. Also well within walking distance of nearly everything in Hannibal.
my husband and i visit hannibal every year and we always make sure we eat at lulabelles. the food is wonderful and the staff is very attentive. our glasses are never empty... i would suggest that anyone going to hannibal to stop and eat at LULABELLES.....
My husband and I planned our anniversary trip to Hannibal to spend a relaxing day seeing the sights and enjoying a bed and breakfast. We checked in at Lulabelle's in the afternoon and were greeted by a less than friendly bar staff person who took us to our room. The upstairs area where the bedrooms are was not very appealing with worn, dirt/brown carpet and a musty smell.
The worst part was from time we settled into our room that evening the train was going by every 20 minutes. The train is a stone's throw away from the building.
We ended up leaving at 1:30am and heading home. We left two messages that night on the manager's voice mail. We wanted to let him know we were leaving so they did not plan on breakfast for us. We asked that he return our call to discuss the charges. We called a total of three times and never received a return phone call. They charged us the full amount without an explanation or return call.
We will not recommend this establishment to anyone.
For the type of place that it is, this place was great and very much affordable. If you are looking for all of the fine amenities, then...maybe you should consider the Hilton. Going to a rustic river town and finding a treasure like this is priceless. Breakfast was really good and our host was very friendly. We'll be back again!
My fiance(boyfriend at the time)and I spent a weekend here and were very impressed with this place. Looking at the description as it used to be a brothel I was a little reserved but decided since it was my first time in a B&B I gave it a try. Boy was it wonderful. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the food is TERRIFFIC!!!!! It is in a great location with the river behind the hotel and now we are planning on trying to go back this year and maybe get married there.
My girlfriend and I recently stayed at Lula Belle's for a romantic getaway. We stayed in the Safari Room, which was a themed room in Belle's Secret (an offshoot of the B&B itself). The room itself was very comfortable and offered a tremendous amount of privacy. Each of the two mornings we had breakfast, the owner was there to take care of us. Very friendly guy.
I've seen some posts about the trains. Yes, they do come through that area, but it did not detract from our very memorable experience. I would highly recommend this establishment to anyone looking for a nice private weekend getaway. Belle's Secret is awesome!
We had planned a quiet weekend escape at the "secret" location. The room was ok, but definitely not worth the price. Then there was the noise. A train about half block away that went by every 30 minutes or so. The noise from people at all hours of the night in the street was terrible. When we saw "Lulabelle's train mufflers" on our nightstands, we knew that trouble was ahead. The mufflers were ear plugs.
Breakfast was awful. You are given no choice at all. We had requested lowfat food and received omelets and fried potatoes.
The room was clean and very cold. The bed was nice.
We will not be returning and do not recommend as a romantic getaway.
