“Pleasent stop along revolutionary trail”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2011

Very nice accomodations. Brandywine valley is beautiful even in the rain, tree colors were just changing due to wet summer. Musuem with the Wyeth exhibits was excellent, the orighinal illustrations were together for first time since first painted. Restuarants in area were excellent, home cooking style and 5 stars.

Although our room showed its age a bit, our overall experience was so wonderful that that didn't matter a bit. The room was huge with a fireplace and jacuzzi tub. The staff was extraordinary. We both agreed that this hotel was the best value we've ever stayed in. We've stayed in a bunch of really fancy places - paid for by someone else for business - and a lot of moderate cost places - on our own nickel. This was our own nickel. We'll absolutely stay here next time we're in the area. And, we do plan on traveling back since there's a lot to see and do in the Brandywine valley. It's close enough to Philly to go in and spend the day but without the $30 a day parking... We'd highly recommend it the Brandywine River Hotel!!

On line this place looks like a nice little escape but it certainly does not have the local customer service. In fact, the service is terrible. Prepare for there to be a mix up with your reservations, over charge of your room and a couple days worth of headache dealing with it afterwards. I hate to say this but the "big chain" Hampton hotel near by would be a better option.

Room Tip: Skip this hotel all together

I am very disappointed, was looking forward to staying here based on many great reviews. Even had bid on & won a fundraising auction gift certificate (that means I already paid for this!). It was due to expire in Sept. I called in early Sept & asked if they would extend the gift cert to 10.14 as we could not get a sitter earlier. I provided the cert #, very up front about the expiration & they confirmed it would be fine for 10/14, took credit card # as security. TODAY they called to say they looked up my cert & it expired in Sept, best they can do is a 25% discount. If they had told me that in early Sept, I would have looked for a different sitter, but they said it would be fine! Apparently no one wrote it down, so now they won't honor it. I can't turn back time to Sept & get a sitter now!! I even had names of the 2 people I talked to, to no avail. The GM/owner had the gall to say I was making "idle threats" that I would tell people how we were treated. This could be the 4 Seasons & I wouldn't go there now.

I've stayed at this hotel during business trips to the area a few times in the past and it's always a nice break from the usual big chain hotels that I usually stay in. It's like stepping back in time but with most of the mod cons that people look for. The Prime restaurant at the bottom of the parking lot is also superb.

We were THRILLED with how cute the lobby and the room were. Elegeant table settings for the continental breakfast were a pleasant surprise - so much prettier than we have seen anywhere else. Great value for the low cost. Only downsize - the fitness center is very old and out of the way. Machines could use replacing, but there IS a fitness center on site, so I can't complain.

We stayed for only one night, and had the king size bed with Jacuzzi tub. We thought the room was nicer than the photos on the site and were pleasantly surprised. The staff was very nice and accomadating. We also had dinner at the Prime steakhouse. We had the Friday night half price burgers at the bar. That made the dinner very reasonably priced, and the food and service was excellent. It was the best spinach and artichoke dip we've ever had! We also enjoyed the cookies and tea in the afternoon, and wine tasting at the Chad's Ford winery. We would definietly return!
