“Excellent as usual!”
Reviewed 27 September 2009

This was our second stay at the Brafferton Inn. This time, we stayed in the South Suite. As usual, the cleanliness, service, food, and friendliness of the innkeepers were excellent! We will continue to stay here every time we visit the area. I have read others say that the innkeepers were not freindly, but this is definetly NOT the case. They have always been very friendly and inviting to everyone I have seen them come into contact with. Most of all, I wish I could enjoy their breakfast every day!!

We stayed here a while back, and I'm just getting around to doing my review. Life has been busy, what can I say? Anyway, my husband and I stayed at the Brafferton Inn for our anniversary during our visit to Gettysburg and we were very impressed. If you want to feel like you are immersed in Gettysburg history, this is the perfect place for you. We enjoyed our room on the top floor of the house and felt like were were tucked away, which was exactly what we wanted. The ambiance of the place is great and we liked the artwork in the dining area. We also loved that we were able to leave the B&B and walk everywhere, do the downtown walking tour of Gettysburg, walk to dinner, etc. We would definitely return if we were ever in the area again.

It is a good think that I travel with a container of Lysol wipes. I really needed them to wash the bathroom floor! The furniture was old and uncomfortable. The rooms just appeared "unclean." We didn't know at the time of booking on line that our room would not be located in the inn itself, but upstairs in an adjacent property. The Inn is located on a very busy street. The two window air conditioners could not drown out the traffic noise. The street was a thoroughfare for semi-trucks.
The breakfast was superb with considerations for my food allergies.
The expensive room rate was not worth it.

InnkeepersGettysburg, Owners at Brafferton Inn, responded to this review, 29 July 2009
In response to this review, we as owners would like to state that all of our rooms and bedrooms are cleaned on a daily basis. The floors in the bathrooms are swept, mopped, and dysinfected daily.
All rooms are then checked either by ourselves or our innkeepers before guests check in.
In the over 50 previous reviews on Tripadvisor, or the 100's of reviews on other sites, cleanliness has never been an issue with our guests, and we take pride in keeping our house clean.
We are in total disagreement that the room or floors would be in that kind of condition.
Also, if the room was that "dirty", we could have been notified by the guests and switched them to a different room. We were not ever told by the guests that there were some issues with the room.
As far as decor, we are the oldest deeded house in downtown Gettysburg, built in 1786. The room that these guests stayed in is an addition built onto the main house in the 1850's. The decorating style reflects the period on purpose to fit the character of the house.

Thanks for reading our side.

If you like B&B's, the Brafferton is exceptional. The family who run it are incredibly nice, helpful, hardworking and super competent. The Inn is beautiful and in a great location. The breakfast is five star. Unlike most of the other service providers in the downtown area, these folks take great pride in their work and it shows.

Somethings you might not like (depending on personal preferences): this is an Inn, not a chain hotel and thus the walls are not sound proof. But the rooms are extremely clean and well maintained.

I've read most if not all of the other reviews of this Inn and they are spot-on.

My husband and I stayed one night at the Brafferton and we were very impressed. Our room was cozy, and we enjoyed having no t.v. for a change. Everything is decorated just perfect. The location is great, we parked in the parking garage and walked everywhere we needed to go. Breakfast was the grand finale of our two day trip, it was wonderful and we left very full! The lemon poppy seed muffins were AWESOME!! We will surely go back!
