This hotel is in a beautiful scenic area surrounded by great restaurants (Brandywine Prime/Antica) in Andrew Wyeth country but I put up a friend there recently and it went from bad to worse. Customer service is seriously lacking. There appears to be no supervisory staff and the staff that does work there just a little shady. Charged both my credit... More

My boyfriend and I went here for a birthday trip to explore the winery's. He chose this hotel based on the great reviews it had. But that's the point, this hotel was at one point probably really nice. It definitely needs A LOT of updating. It's hidden on the side of the highway. Not really classy. We walked in and... More

I highly recommend staying elsewhere.The staff is incredibility rude and treated myself and other guests with no respect. James, the staff member, working the night shift felt it was justified to barge into our hotel room. He walked right into the bathroom when a female was in there. He didn't apologize or show any concern. James needs assistance with customer... More

Upon entering the Brandywine River Hotel in the fall or winter, you are greeted with a roaring fire in the small, but cozy lounge; this is only the beginning of a lovely stay in historic Chester County, PA. Though a bit larger, it reminds me of a boutique hotel with excellent service. The rooms are large and attractive. An office... More

Staff is friendly. Clean; has a business center. But aside from the decor, not much different from the standard chain motel with a breakfast buffet. A few years ago you could get a glass of wine in the evening in their cozy little lobby, but no longer.

This hotel is located in a great area with 2 excellent restaurants in walking distance. Tea with cookies is served at 4:30 which is a nice touch. If you are traveling to Chadds Ford, this is the place to stay!

We were invited to share in a special occasion and it was being held at the Brandywine Prime. Due to different circumstances we were coming from out of town and knowing that we would be drinking that night we chose to get a hotel room at the Brandywine River Hotel. The check in was seamless, and the service was polite... More

The Brandywine River Hotel is set back from the highway; you must be careful that you don't miss the turn into the driveway. But that makes it quieter. It is a small hotel. Breakfast is served every morning. It is a selection of cereals, waffles, baked goods and fruit. Tea is served in the afternoon, with cookies. (complimentary) Our room... More

I have several friends in the Chadds Ford/Kennett Square area. This is a super locale to do the culture vulture thing, visit with friends and the price was extremely reasonable and it was not cookie cutter.
