We very much enjoyed our recent stay while visiting Longwood Gardens and the Brandywine River Museum. The hotel is perfectly located for these and other area attractions (historic battlefield, wineries). Our room was spotless and comfortable. As noted in another review, there is excellent food available in restaurants immediately adjacent to the hotel property. The staff were extremely friendly and... More

We recently went to this hotel December 2014. We had problem with the shower/tub either scalding us or freezing. We reported it to an uninterested desk clerk. She said the night auditor would review and credit us. Nothing happened! I called a week later and another desk clerk said she would tell the owner and call me back. She said... More

I didn't know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The rooms were awesome with relaxing Jacuzzi tubs and the most comfortable bed ever! We loved the fireplace in our room as well, made everything very cozy and made us feel we spent more money then we actually did! Such a reasonable price and I wouldn't hesitate... More

A romantic, tidy little gem with an excellent restaurant just down the hill that offers room service. Afternoon tea and breakfast served daily in the dining room. Clean, comfortable and a refreshing alternative to hotel chains for an affordable stay. The historic vibe is a great assest while staying in Chadds Ford. We will keep coming back to this place...

We had a horrible experience booking a room with this hotel, which we then had to cancel because they said they could not provide the room we booked because we were bringing a pet. We booked/cancelled through Travelocity, but the hotel claimed not to get the cancellation (which is amazing since it's all done on-line - how can reservations go... More

The hotel is outstanding. We love the honeymoon suite. Very quiet and clean, plus close to many things to do. We went to the Brandywine Prime for dinner the same night we stayed at the hotel. The continental breakfast is a nice touch.

The Brandywine River Hotel is in a great location, very close to area attractions such as Longwood Gardens and Winterthur. It is very reasonably priced and has very friendly service. Love the afternoon cookies and tea that is offered in the lobby by the fireplace.

This was our second stay at the Hotel. Rooms were lovely, service good, only downside was that the continental breakfast was not available until 8:00 (weekend) and the pillows just were not comfortable. Close to Longwood and Winterthur, which were within minutes of the hotel.

Very quaint hotel. Our stay was a gift in the premium room. The room was so comfortable, quiet and romatic with the fireplace and jacuzzi. It was also very clean! A continental breakfast was offered in the morning-nothing fancy but perfect if you want to grab something and get on the road. Also, there are two excellent restaurants within walking... More

We have just returned from three nights at the Brandywine River Hotel, and we expect to return again if we are in the area. This was our second stay here, the last one about ten years ago, and it is still consistently a fine lodging experience. We celebrated my birthday with a wonderful midweek stay in a room with a...
