Everything was amazing. The hosts were superb. Excellent service. Definitely plan to go back, but this time not for business.
Only drawback--window unit was annoying, but sorely needed to muffle other guests coming up and down stairs.
Jill and Eric were fantastic hosts. Always a smile on their faces. Good local advice. The breakfast is very good. The period building is beautiful.
Rooms weren't as clean as expected. Especially under the bed, in corners, etc.
Beautifully restored 1870 Victorian home in prime location within walking distance of Philadelphia Arts District and Drexel University, with wonderfully gracious hosts who did everything right, and socialized with guests, addresses every concern immediately, in probably the best B&B I've ever stayed. We had 2 bedroom Continental Suite which were perfect for my wife, each with a separate room and bed. The entire B&B is filled with historic pieces and more eye candy that there's enough time to see. Breakfast daily was always a surprise as Eric loved creating dishes to surprise us with, working in harmony with his beautiful wife Jill. The young couple are completely committed to doing everything right and making sure customers' stays are perfect. The warm, fresh baked chocolate chip cookies made for a great reception treat and ice, lemonade, tea, coffee, and biscotti were available throughout the day.
I think the breakfasts were a bit on the heavy side for my diet. I know biscuits and gravy and waffles are traditional but I try to avoid unnecessary starches. I'd suggest a little more flexibility and/or simpleness with some dishes. There was quite a large selection of buffet items so there was no problem finding plenty to eat, including various fresh bakery items and fresh fruit, juice, cereal, and a whole variety of snacks, some to eat later. When I dodged the waffles on the 3rd breakfast, Eric had no problem preparing me a special order of fried eggs. I've never stayed at a B&B where I could get an alternative breakfast, so that was a great plus. No alcohol was available for evening cordials.
Friendliness of owners, breakfast, help, cleanliness and location amongst beautiful trees. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming.
Thank you so much for taking care of my parents for their 50th wedding anniversary. They loved your B and B!
