Clean, well maintained, quiet (set back far from the road), mattresses are firm, the windows actually open, the staff was ready and willing to attend to every need. The location is ideal for visiting everything in the Chadds Ford area: Brandywine museum (5 minutes away), Longwood Gardens (15 minutes), Winterthur (15 minutes).

This is a darling 40 room hotel with a very friendly staff, continental breakfast and afternoon tea and cookies. Nice rooms and a large computer room. Short walk to 2 nearby bistros. Minutes from the Brandywine River Museum featuring 3 generations of Wyeth art, Longwood Gardens and many antique shops.

Four adults in our party rented two rooms: a deluxe double with two double beds on the front of the hotel, and an executive jacuzzi with queen bed on a back corner. Both were nicely furnished, with very comfortable beds, and quiet. The hotel sits back far from the roadway behind another building, so there's no highway noise. The executive... More

A beautifully maintained full service independent property, the Brandywine offered a clean, comfortable room with superb service, substantial continental breakfast, and late afternoon tea (along with fresh baked cookies), all for a most reasonable rate. This was my first visit to the area but there is so much to see and do in the vicinity that I will surely be... More

Next time you make reservations with us, feel free to ask for a “Pasture View” room so we know you would like to have a room facing away from the parking lot. We look forward to seeing you again soon. More

I took a few days off for some R&R and had heard about the Brandywine area's attractions. The hotel seemed like a nice place and I splurged for the very affordable king fireplace suite. Overall I had a very positive experience here. Yes, the decor is dated and the breakfast is nothing to write home about. Didn't make a difference... More

I am glad you were able to get away for a bit of R&R in one of our Jacuzzi suites. I will have our maintenance department take a look at the drains and make sure they are functioning properly for your next visit. I am happy to hear that Alicia was so accommodating; I have passed your kind words on... More

I had scheduled a much needed weekday break and decided to visit Longwood Gardens and the Brandywine River area. In searching for a hotel, I was a little hesitant to book the Brandywine River hotel, based on some previous reviews. But they had all the amenities I was looking for, so I took the leap. I am so glad I... More

The advertised wellness center is defunct, but still promoted on website. The decor is circa early 1980 and needs updating, the afternoon tea still advertised has been wiped out- new ownership that has tanked it- waste of money

Considering its in a very good area. I decided to go do some sightseeing with my husband to the Brandywine battle field and Wyeth Museum. We decided to do a little overnighter for a romantic evening.

This hotel has changed ownership & is not the charming place it once was. Rather disappointed & will probably choose the 'chain' hotels for future stays.

While it is true that we changed ownership in January 2011, we have attempted to keep changes to a minimum (or make positive changes.) If there is something that we have changed that you would like to see brought back, please let us know. More
