We give five stars to the Silverstone. The inn keepers are gracious and fascinating. They're from Poland (30 years ago) and are passionate experts on the history of Poland and Ukraine. They are great conversationalists. Huge rooms, very elegant, up to date on all modern amenities in a 175 year old mansion. Delicious breakfast. Easy walk to Septa train into... More

Having been to so many similar places all over the world, I can state with conviction that the place has a unique ambience and the friendliness of the hosts is unparalleled. Rom's breakfast omelettes are legendary. Andrew

Great victorian home tastefully decorated. All the amenities in a beautiful setting. We slept in a room which has a tempurpedic mattress which first felt weird but turned out to be very comfortable. Rooms are full of antiques and old family portraits. Hosts were very nice, it felt as if staying with family. Highly recommended.

Staying at the Silverstone B and B is a treat which we were lucky enough to enjoy this past week. Located in the historic and beautiful Chestnut Hill area of Philadelphia, the home is a great blend of Victorian charm and modern comforts. We arrived on a snowy evening and had no trouble reaching it; all was shoveled clear. The... More

I and my brother recently visited family in Chestnut Hill, PA and had the pleasure of staying at the Silverstone B & B. The accommodations were outstanding and the owners very friendly and very attentive. The home itself was something out of history and the breakfast was made to order and delicious. I felt as if we were staying with... More

It's a beautiful place, very nice looking house and quite nice rooms too. Location is good, easy to find, ample parking. The room we had was ok, with our own bathroom, it was all clean and ready for us when we arrived except that it was probably 10° C inside... (nobody actually met us, we were given the outside door...

My wife and I had a two day stay at the Silverstone Bed & Breakfast and were disappointed by the experience after reading the bulk of the reviews here. I will start with the positive. We were allowed to pick out our room as the Silverstone was not fully booked. Though the room and bath were not overly inviting, the... More

Because our guests were not happy with our service, we credited them for one night stay. However, we would like to add some explanation: Our guests have their own, fully-equiped kitchen. We usually ask them to clean this kitchen after their use, and most of them do it. If they do not clean after cooking – and sometimes they cook... More

I am very sorry that our guest from Kuala Lumpur (special discount, $115 per night, for the Institutes’ patients) did not feel at home in “Silverstone”. Its my fault, and, therefore, my apology and explanation is necessary: Quite often I treat our guests informally; I tell stories, jokes, anegdotes – without realizing that my behavior might be received as unprofessional....

What an incredible BB. We stayed as a couple over Thanksgiving. The hosts of the BB were amazing and they made our stay there a wonderful experience. The breakfast was extensive with anything you could ask for, the rooms were pristine, clean, with the character of an old Victorian mansion, the service was outstanding. We felt like we were treated... More

This place is the best hidden gem in Philadelphia. We were amazed and felt like we were in Europe. The Room was large and well equipped. The home made food was incredible . The coffee was best I ever had. You will be so happy with this booking, so just do it and see for yourself
