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

Upon arrival at Spruce Hill Manor, Janet welcomed me at the door by saying that her children were grown and her whole mission in life was to make me as comfortable as possible. She then drove me to my restaurant! Spruce Hill Manor is lovely and I felt completely at home and well-cared for.

Spruce Hill Manor is a beautifully decorated, detail oriented, immaculate, and homey place to stay on your visit. I stayed here the night before my USMLE Step 2 CS exam and Janet was there to welcome me from the moment I arrived. Her friendliness calmed my nerves and she was so sweet about making sure my stay would be perfect... More

Janet is a most solicitous and energetic hostess. Where else will your inn keeper drive you to your restaurant so that you don't have to worry about parking? Spruce Hill Manor is charming and well located in a safe neighborhood. We enjoyed two lovely nights and wonderful breakfasts where we met some delightful people. And the coffee was great! These...

Absolutely loved my time here Janet is the best, most helpful and accommodative host. If you need a charming place to stay while in university city this is the place. The room was extremely spacious and comfortable, free wifi, cable TV and you have your own little sitting room. What more could one ask for and the breakfast was great... More

A delightful B&B in a quiet but fairly central neighbourhood. Comfortable and spacious rooms and the breakfast spread is delicious and included fresh fruit salad, home baked quiche and options of cereal etc. You can help yourself to tea, coffee and snacks anytime of the day. Janet the owner is so hospitable and goes out of her way to make... More

Spruce Hill Manor is one of the best places to be in Philly! The house, the bedrooms, the garden, the breakfast and the neighborhood are perfect, but most of all Janet, the innkeeper, is what makes this place the most special B&B @ Philly. I lived in Philly and I also have been at other B&B in Philly, both in... More
