I hesitated to book at the Brandywine River Hotel because of some negative reviews. However, I liked the way the manager responded to the complaints, and I took his comment about new ownership to heart. Plus, the price was right and they had a vacancy. I am certainly glad I decided to give them a chance. We found the room clean and comfortable. I jury-rigged a cooler into a temporary refrigerator, but learned after I arrived that one could be rented for $10 a night. Perhaps in the future they can be included in the room costs. We used the business center computer to check some addresses. Front desk personnel were always helpful and courteous.
The breakfast must have been improved as we were delighted with the options: hot and cold cereal, juice, various muffins and breads (including a wonderful apple bread), hard-boiled eggs and a do-it yourself waffle-iron. The cookies at teatime were fresh-baked and delicious.
All in all, I would definitely return, and would recommend it to friends.
