“Needs work”
Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

We had dinner there and did not stay there. We had been here many times before it had reopened.
It is a wonderful building with loads of character. The dinner menu is short, but offers beef, chicken and fish selections, possibly vegetarian. My $34 ahi tuna was overpriced for the size of the portion and slightly overcooked, not good for tuna. When my meal was served I was informed a tomato salad was substituted for veges and potatoes, what? How does that work out? My friend's dinner was a better portion, but average flavor.
I feel the place has no identity. With a near empty dining room possibly a less expensive menu and more choices would fit the typical weekend traffic. Not sure, but something's needs to be done or unfortunately the place will not last.

Stayed at the Mansion Inn on June 14 and 15 for a family wedding. The Inn was very nice but the service is a bit raggedy. Other rooms are lovely but ours was meh with a very tight bathroom and the air conditioner was not installed. You need this to cover the noise from outside if not for the heat. We asked but it was never installed. Also the invoicing was a bit screwed up and the room was not set up properly for the three people as requested. Breakfast is also a bit unpredictable. They need more help when the Inn is filled. On a weekend they were out of basics like eggs, toast, orange juice and they have no de-caff coffee which seems strange. Breakfast service needs a lot of work although it is well meaning. They do a big restaurant business but that leaves no place to sit if you are a guest and the seating areas are taken up by diners. Hopefully for the future they can get their act together.

Room Tip: Don't stay in the barn or the Balmoral room. The others are much nicer.

We just spent the last weekend in New Hope and had a great weekend. Our stay at the Mansion Inn was very nice and Alex was very accommodating. The new owners have only been operating the inn for 10 weeks and they are clearly still learning. The inn is very nice, but in need of some updating. The only negative aspect of our stay was breakfast. Since this is advertised as a Bed & Breakfast, there should be a formal breakfast. Instead, the server (who is also the cook) tells you he will cook whatever you want. They try very hard to meet requests, but they don't always have what you want and breakfast ends up a little disorganized. They would do better with a formal menu, so guests know what they have and they know what to stock. Also, the kitchen doesn't open until 8 AM, so they need to put out a pot of coffee for early risers. Regardless of this issue, our stay was very nice and I'm sure they'll only improve. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The Hampton Court Room is very nice.

We have never been to New Hope and this was our first experience of the town and of the Mansion Inn. The parking was great. We walked through the garden to get into the Mansion Inn to be greeted by a very warm and welcoming innkeeper, Mike. We immediately felt at home.

We stayed in the Hampton Court Room which had a queen bed and private bath.

Before our trip we read some negative reviews on here and on yelp that made us a little worried, but as soon as we met Mike and got into the room we were no longer worried. We couldn't even tell there was a kitchen fire or that it was shut down for a period of time. It was nicely painted and decorated. It had a modern feel without disregarding the beautiful history of the Inn. The place only has 5 rooms so it's a nice, quiet place to stay.

Our room was nice and clean. Sure the TV was a little small, but we weren't staying at the Inn to watch TV. We were there to explore the town and go on a winery tour. For both nights after we came back from dinner we took our wine out to the porch and drank while we people watched. Starbucks, a wine store, an ice cream store and two really great restaurants are immediately surrounding the Inn.

You will not be disappointed with your stay. You're going to love Mike. We wish we could convince him to have a glass of wine with us. The Inn has a lot of cool history behind it with beautiful details.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Hampton Court room.

My daughter Lisa and I escaped to New Hope for some rest and relaxation from our crazy schedules. We had seen The Mansion Inn on a previous trip to New Hope and thought it looked charming. We booked online and stayed there for two nights on July 29th and 30th, 2013. After we booked we heard they had had a kitchen fire and had just reopened a few months before, so we really did not know if it would be as we remembered. We were a little leery after hearing about the fire, as staying there was not inexpensive. We should not have worried. We were greeted by Mike, the new innkeeper who has a dynamite personality and could not do enough to make sure we were comfortable. We fell in love with the Inn, and Mike just made us feel so welcome! My only disappointment was the outside garden which seems to need some tender loving care, but I am sure the garden will get the care it deserves with Mike at the helm! I am a minister who does a lot of wedding ceremonies, so I immediately noticed the beautiful gazebo in the back, I would love to do a wedding there, it would be a beautiful setting,it just needs more flowers. We found the inn to be clean, comfortable and very relaxing. You cannot beat the location, and my daughter who drove was thrilled that there was so much to do, all within walking distance, we did not even move the car for the entire stay. We fell in love with the inn, and with Mike, and may make this our yearly retreat get-away spot! Do not hesitate to stay there, both Mike and the beautiful old inn will welcome you with open arms! We loved it, and will go back!

Great B and B.
Stayed here with my wife 4/13/13.
The owner Valerie is very nice and accommodating.
We stayed on the top floor, in the Windsor suite, which was excellent.
The location and parking they have can't be beat.
The breakfast in the morning was very nice and of course convenient.
Quite honestly, there really isn't any reason to stay anywhere else in New Hope
but here....

Room Tip: Windsor suite was quite large with a separate sitting room and gas fireplace. Loved it!!

We have been to many B&B's and this is the very first time I have ever had anything negative to say . My husband, myself and another couple came to the Mansion Inn for an overnight stay. When we pulled into the parking lot and saw the barn that our rooms were in , we should have left then . Paint was peeling , the blinds in the windows were broken , and green moss and dirt all over the stairs and railings. The grounds were horrible,broken junk in the yard , just a mess. We checked in and were taken to our rooms , when the door opened the first thing we saw was a filthy , dirty, stained rug . It was gross ! When I looked up I see the bed is 4" off the floor on one side and 10" on the other side. The TV was smaller than my computer screen . The room was null and void of any decor. Then we went into the bathroom , The toilet seat was worn and broken,there was a screw coming out of the back seat cover . There were a number of holes in the walls where curtain rods must have been. We went downstairs to ask for a refund because the room was too dirty to stay in, we were told that because we bought it through groupon , we could not get a refund. When we told the Inn Keeper there was not much of a response, she did tell us that the carpet was not dirty , it was just stained .It was disgusting. She said that no one had ever complained before us. I guess she doesn't read Trip Advisor we should have.
