“Pleasant Inn Keeper”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2012

I stayed at the Inn last month for a night and over all my experience was quite nice. If you are looking for a nice quiet place to stay, this is your place. The rooms are a bit run-down however but they are very CLEAN so that is a plus. In my opinion a little money would go a long way in fixing up the inn (new rugs, new wall paper, new paint job). With that said, the inn keeper was absolutely the best. She was very accommodating to my needs and answered all of my questions, she really made me feel very welcome and for that I will definitely stay again.

As we are locals so we do not stay in the B&B section, however share many special occasions in the restaurant.
I have worked for a large company that owns three award-winning hotels and 2 fine-dining restaurants in the Brandywine Valley for more than 20 years, and so am keenly aware of all that goes into a fine-dining restaurant and the preparation of the menu.
And I have to say the Duling Kurtz is the tops!
My recent Ahi tuna sashimi appetizer was incredible. The tuna slices were thin, large and moist. And every morsel of my entree, the herb-crusted shrimp and scallops over a cauliflower puree was perfection.
My husband who likes all his filets well done (a culinary sin to my way of thinking) ordered his filet mignon medium well. It arrived hot, succulent and tender.
Our server, who said she had been there fro three years, was professional, attentive and knowlegeable.
I have seen some negative reviews of this property in the past few years and can only think that some souls need to puff themselves up by putting others down.
We will return again.

Our family enjoyed the food and ambience at a relaxing Sunday afternoon dinner. Appetizers and salads were very good, perfectly complemented by fresh popovers. The side dishes were outstanding - garlic potatos, sauteed vegetables, roasted brussel sprouts were all top-notch. The main courses were very good, though my daughter's New York strip steak was somewhat dry. Prices were moderately high; dinners ranged from $28-35 per entree, and salads and appetizers easily bring that over $50 per person. For an occasional treat, the Duling-Kurtz is a pleasant place to go.

We had been here for lunch a few times so we decided to try it for our anniversary dinner. The food was excellent and the service was friendly. I have even gotten gift certificates for family members and the owner is always very nice.

Have been twice. Once for a weekend away and once for a personally planned large family gathering. Highs....somewhat like being transported to a location similar to the countryside of germany, great personalized service, good food, nice wine and champagne list and wonderful fireside dining.....lows.... needs a little more attention to detail in terms of upkeep and the food is 3 star not 4 star... in general, very happy to say I would recommend and enjoy...this is old world elegance and that is what you should expect. Its not a new shining example of modern chester county, its bringing you back in time and expect that.

This was our second stay and it was very disappointing. Not only did the owners fail to mention an ecoli problem with the water while making a reservation, they also failed to mention it upon check-in. I was provided 1 bottle of water and a letter from the Health Dept. and it seems the owner/innkeeper were nowhere to be found. Breakfast was also disappointing and lacked sufficient items to drink that were considered "safe." Room was also very cold and you were unable to adjust the temp. so you had to "deal" with the freezing temps! Sadly disappointed and will not be returning there ever again!!
