My husband and I spent several days in Kansas City. We stayed at three different places. The Southmoreland was our first. It was so charming. We stayed in the Winstead room. It isn't very big, but really that was what made it special. There was more than enough room for the two of us. I loved the book that contained... More

We stayed at the Southmoreland many years ago and have been wanting to return ever since. It is difficult to book a room on the weekend, so we opted for a Thursday evening and were able to book into the William Rockhill Nelson room. We arrived an hour before check-in time, but were not allowed to wait in the living... More

My husband and I visited recently for our 3rd anniversary. Pros: Close to the Plaza shops and restaurants. This was the biggest reason I chose this place to stay. However, there were more Cons than I could probably list here: FIrst two mornings, we were woken up at 6am with concrete pouring at the complex next door. FIrst breakfast was... More

My fiancé booked the Clara & Russell Stover room in May, and he proposed to me that evening, so this place is very special to me! The people working in this bed and breakfast are so friendly and accommodating. I loved the small town feel of a bed and breakfast located in the middle of downtown Kansas City. We had... More

Being unfamiliar with KC, I was running (or booking) a bit blind. The website accurately represents the beauty and amenities but does not touch the wonderful service and level of attention to detail this group displays. Let me get the single challenge out of the way...parking. It is limited but we found street parking on two of three nights. Enough... More

We had a wonderful stay at Southmoreland. The staff were very accommodating and helpful. We stayed in one of the smaller rooms but it was very cute and cozy. We loved the special touches... sherry and fruit in the room, mint on our pillow in the evening. The breakfast was delicious. We will definitely stay here on future visits to... More

We loved our 4 night stay at Southmoreland on the Plaza this week. We came to KC for a few baseball games (father-in-law is a die hard Dodger fan) and found the location to be an excellent choice for our mini vacation. We ended up renting a car at the airport since we decided to do a last minute day... More

If you're visiting Kansas City for work or pleasure, this is an excellent place to stay. It definitely surpassed my expectations. What a great get-away location with a unique balance of relaxation and entertainment near by. The location is perfect! The Inn is nestled amongst the trees and beautiful gardens. You can easily walk to the plaza, museums, and river... More

My husband and I love staying at bed and breakfast inns (having stayed at 35 over the last 13 years) and Southmoreland is now in our top three. I booked our room because of the reviews on TripAdvisor and we were not disappointed. In fact, we plan to return next year. Our innkeepers, Mark and Nancy, and there staff did... More

We love B&B's and have stayed in many over the years...and this is our favorite. We have stayed at Southmoreland multiple times. The Inn has 12 rooms and a carriage house. All of the rooms are beautifully decorated in a theme, with wonderful beds, and full bathrooms. Many have covered balconies overlooking the big shade trees and gardens. The Inn... More
