The husband and I have been coming to this hotel for years. We've never stayed in the Suite Loraine but this time our favorite room The River Suite was booked. I'm glad it was because our new favorite room is now this suite. Gorgeous 2 story room with gorgeous views of the Delaware River. Very clean and beautifully decorated. We... More

I took advantage of their last minute rate, for a personal getaway, and I am so glad that I did. I needed a couple of days of peace and quiet, and that is just what I found. I am so impressed that this hotel is so close to Philadelphia, but that it feels a world away. I spent a few... More

I stayed here during the February big freeze. The hotel is located in a beautiful spot by the Delaware river. My room on the second floor was warm and cozy, with a balcony that overlooked the river. The bathroom was very well presented and well equipped with a walk-in shower. The room itself was very tastefully done out and so... More

We have been here for dinner 5 times now and stayed overnight on three occasions. What I find most impressive, especially during our most recent stay, is that whether it is full capacity or running light (as was the case this past time due to snow and bad weather) the quality of service and food are equally excellent. The food... More

This hotel is so quaint and wonderful. The rooms are clean and interesting. They are "old-fashioned" in the best way - not a gaudy Victorian setting but you still get beautiful claw foot tubs with with modern glass showers. It's beautifully creaky and cavernous. The old wood floors are stunning and big furniture beautiful. The room we stayed in had... More

We celebrated my sister's birthday here. She and her husband love this place. The service was impeccable. The drinks were lively. The atmosphere was relaxed and not stuffy at all. The food was excellent without any pretense. I could see why they chose the Black Bass. Very nice.

The Black Bass (on the National Register of Historic Places - see photo) combines some of the best modern hotel amenities (e.g., walk-in steam shower, large countertops) with the charm of a Revolutionary era inn. With its location on the Delaware River, adjacent to the Delaware Canal, you can imagine travelers going from Philadelphia to Trenton stopping here for a... More

I have celebrated the last 2 Thanksgivings at the Black Bass. Very good food, friendly and capable service in a charming atmosphere. You guys do a great job, considering the volume of meals you serve. However, you hurt your brand whenever you make menu decisions that are expedient for the kitchen at the expense of your guests. Last year, I... More

We spent last weekend celebrating our anniversary at the Black Bass. Our room was lovely with a balcony overlooking the Delaware River. The bathroom had a steam room in it and my husband was over the moon. This is a very old property with great updates and charm. The bar is a great place to visit -the pewter inlay is... More
