Our stay far exceeded our expectations. Our room was spotless, delightfully furnished and very roomy. Janet is truly and extraordinary host. She could not do enough for us. The breakfasts were outstanding. Fresh fruits, juices and a wide selection of the most delicious breads in Philly are just a few of the items served. I can think of nothing that... More

We happily add our voices to the chorus of praise for the Spruce Hill Manor. This incomparable B&B not only met all the marks for a superior stay (spotlessly clean, beautiful room; gorgeous Victorian near public transportation; delicious breakfast), but also continually delighted us with extra amenities (24/7 snacks, rides to the Barnes and the train station, late afternoon checkout)....

Janet is a terrific host, amazing cook, and wonderful person to talk with. She made our trip to Philly that much more special. I would highly recommend her B&B over staying at a hotel. The location is very convenient by metro to the city and having that feeling of welcomeness is something you just don't get at big hotels. The... More

Mrs. Janet is wonderful and runs the place wonderfully! The Manor is gorgeous and her wonderful personality and warm welcome made us really feel at home! She tailors the experience to our needs and even drove us around the city and to the station. Overall, a wonderful stay!

I can't say enough about Janet and her beautiful home. We were made to feel so welcome and she went out of her way to accomodate us and our unique needs. The home is historical and beautiful and very clean. I highly recommend a stay at the Spruce Hill Manor!

Not really a fan of B&B's but traveling with just my daughter, I felt like it would be a good way to go since we were unfamiliar with the area and would need a little more personal service. Bingo! Turned out to be a completely delightful experience. Janet the Innkeeper was like visiting your Aunt, she made sure we were... More

Spruce Hill is a great B&B with a very welcoming and accommodating hostess in safe neighborhood, convenient to Metro. My wife and I enjoyed our anniversary stay with a spacious, comfortable room and excellent food, including complementary wine and beer.

I don't know where to start! We searched B & B's in Philadelphia and felt that Spruce Hill Manor (SPH) would likely meet our needs. Little did we know, with having read other travelers reviews, that what others said was simply an understatement regarding the level of service, hospitality and graciousness that would be shown by Janet and her staff....

I stayed one night and have been to many bed and breakfasts but found this one very clean and the owner was sweet and accommodating above and beyond any expectations! Breakfast was delicious and I absolutely would recommend this place to anyone!

We spent 3 nights over the July 4 weekend at Spruce Hill Manor, celebrating my wife's birthday with our son and his wife. We had a great time. The Manor is well-located, with easy access to the subway and trolley systems and even walking distance to the museums. Our rooms were very large and comfortable, breakfast was tasty and the... More
