Spruce Hill Manor
Ranked #4 of 25 Philadelphia B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 May 2011

I would totally recommend this B&B to anyone going to the Philly area. The inn keepers were so warm and friendly and made us feel right at home. The B&B is in a great location- close to downtown and a trolley ride away from all the main transportations. We also found great, cozy places to eat within walking distance from the B&B. We would love to stay here again if we ever find ourselves back in Philly.

Excellent experience. The table setting and baked goods for breakfast, the courtesy of the hostess, as well as her caring attitude and generosity, are exceptional. It's like being with friends.

This b&b is nothing short of superb. Janet is a wonderful host and very generous and caring. Nothing is too much trouble and she offers more than is advertised on the internet. The breakfasts, and indeed the choice of available snacks during the day, are varied and plentiful. The rooms are large and stocked with all manner of plates, glasses, cups etc. that you could need. If there was anything missing that you would need, Janet would remedy that immediately. The beds are very comfortable. She has an asset in her assistant, Pam, who is also warm and welcoming. And Adrienne makes the most delicious banana bread – thanks for the extra calories!!!
The accommodation is located within walking distance of several restaurants and we can highly recommend the Lemon Grass Thai restaurant. We felt comfortable walking to the restaurant and believed the near surrounding area to be safe. We also had no problem with the available parking.
We have been travelling across the USA for the past 5 weeks and this is by far the nicest accommodation we have had. I would highly recommend Janet, her team and her accommodation.

Ms. Janet was a wonderful Hostess!! Our flight had been delayed then cancelled so our arrival time changed from 4 pm to 2:30 am. I am sure that this is not this is not what Ms. Janet was looking forward too. She welcomed us upon our arrival like it was normal to come in at 2:30am! The next morning the house felt so relaxing. She had a Fabulous Breakfast waiting. Asked what we had planned for the day and gave us tips and directions to our destinations. Spruce Hill Manor was recomened to us from friends that had stayed here in 2010. Our main reason for coming to Philly was for the Penn Relays. To see our son compete, We had another family there with us that also had their boys competing. Philly was a great time and this B&B was tops!!! Carrie and Marlin

Room Tip: for this B&B Book early!

The Spruce Hill Manor is the perfect choice. The innkeeper, Janet, seems geniunely interested in the happiness and comfort of her guests and is very helpful and knowledgable of the surrounding area. The rooms are spotless, very large, and full of victorian glamour. I stayed there for 2 nights: one with my wedding party and the next for our honeymoon night. The picture opportunities alone were well worth the stay - the place is just incredible. There is even a beautifully kept back yard, tons of flowering bushes and sights to see. If you are getting married, traveling alone, or vacationing with family or friends and want to stay somewhere incredible, this is definitely the place for you. We can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Every room is perfect! Select any with confidence.

Having never stayed at a B&B I was not quite sure what to expect but immediately upon arrival I was made to feel extremely welcomed. Janet is an extraordinary hostess, willing to "customize" your visit in anyway possible to ensure your complete satisfaction. My sisters and I had a wonderful time and Janet went out of her way to make our Sisters' summit perfect from beginning to end!
