We stayed two nights, to see the Longwoood Gardens light show, and nearby Brandywine River Museum, and Hagley Museum. Mike is a fantastic innkeeper, and an excellent cook. Bed was very comfortable, rooms quiet, and reading in the chairs on either side of the fireplace was a special treat. Great location and excellent value.

This is a charming Edwardian home, beautifully maintained, extremely clean, and in an excellent location. The street it sits on is quiet, but within walking distance to Kennett Square, and only a short drive to Longwood Gardens and Winterthur. The innkeeper, Mike, is a very attentive host, and works hard to make sure that his guests are comfortable. The breakfasts... More

My elderly mother and I were visiting Longwood Gardens and chose the Bancroft because of its location. It is indeed only a couple of miles from the garden, and an easy drive. After reading these reviews (with one exception), I contacted the innkeeper to negotiate our visit. Our stay was exactly as I expected. We had negotiated the price in... More

B&B was clean, well laid out. We used it during the week for one night after a visit to Talula's Table in Kennett Square. The property was nice, the facilities nice, but the inn keeper, Mike, made this place very good. He was very knowledgeable about the area, about the history, activities. Mike also went out of his way to... More

We visit my numerous family in Kennett Square several times a year and over the years have tried several local hostelries. Now, however, we always stay at Bancroft Manor because we are always happy there. Mike Snyder has made Bancroft Manor our home away from home. We love the convenient location to the whole Brandywine valley; we love the woodwork... More

If you read my other reviews you will see that rarely do I give totally bad reviews. I'm much more likely to review a place we love rather than review a location based on what may just be a one off bad day. Bancroft however needs and deserves an accurate review. When you read the other reviews of a place... More

Michael S, Owner at Bancroft Manor Bed and Breakfast, responded to this review

To say that I am very disappointed with this review is an understatement. This is my first negative review in 10 years. I am very conscientious about providing an all-around good experience for my guests. I always ask and expect my guests to contact me directly during their stay so I can immediately address and correct any problem or issue... More

We LOVED the Bancroft house, appointments, innkeeper, and location. We were the only guests that day. It was impeccably clean, comfortable and convenient. Mike made every effort to help us out. The breakfast was the only bit of a letdown...brown'n'serve sausage, eggs ok but not hot. Watermelon was great. Just expected more with the price as well as the rating... More

I stayed here with my girlfriend for one night while visiting Longwood Gardens. The location is wonderful. It's not far from gardens, and it's a few blocks away from the main downtown area where all of the shops and restaurants are located. We booked last minute, and Michael was kind enough to offer us an upgrade to a bigger room... More

My husband and I and two friends stayed at Bancroft Manor B&B in early January 2012. The house itself is attractive; rooms are very nicely decorated, each one with its own character; the beds were comfortable; breakfast was delicious; and Mike, the owner/innkeeper, was very accommodating to our requests and last-minute changes in plans. We enjoyed chatting with Mike about... More
