I want to preface my review by saying Janet was a wonderful host. She communicated via email very well and when I asked to have my room ready early she was more than accommodating. The B&B is very lovely and The Tiffany-Parish Room I stayed in was very clean and I loved the blue sheets. The tea that was readily... More

The whole B n B is so beautifully decorated with lots of porcelain pieces and the tables in the dining room are so elegantly set up. It is a joy to admire all the details in each room. Even the carpets thrown throughout all the rooms deserve to be admired. On arrival, there is a "wow' factor and Janet further... More

My daughter and I stayed at Spruce Hill Manor during a visit to Penn. She had an important meeting the next day and this was the perfect place to stay. The house is beautiful and the rooms very clean and nice. But it is the hospitality of the hostess that sets it apart. She was very welcoming and eager to... More

We have stayed with Janet on 3 separate occasions while our son was at Penn. It is a better alternative than the Sheraton or the Inn at Penn. Janet, Adrienne and Anthony go out of their way to make you feel comfortable as a guest in their home. The rooms are beautiful, the breakfasts are wonderful, the hospitality is outstanding!

Janet commented at one point to my adult daughter that since her children are grown, she now pampers her guests. No kidding. A beautiful and historic home is a nice benefit when it comes to B&B's, but it's really the host that makes or breaks the experience. I've stayed in over 300 B & B's over the past 30 years... More

First B&B experience. Janet is charming and a delightful host! Her home was beautifully decorated, clean, comfortable and welcoming. Could not have asked for a better or more enjoyable stay. Perfect location in University City and Drexel. Look forward to another visit.

This was my first trip to Philadelphia, mainly to see the Lion King. When we arrived, Anthony and Janet were very welcoming and helpful. Janet dropped us at the subway station and offered to give us suggestions on site seeing locations. It was a very delightful home away from home experience.

Usually when it's too good to be true, it is.....but not in this case. Believe all of the wonderful reviews travelers have written, because they are true. From the very moment we arrived in PA, which was early due to a red-eye flight, Janet worked to have our room ready for us. We were at our daughter's house on the... More

Janet was friendly and accommodating. She made us feel special as we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary. The home had lots of charm. We stayed one night in the Billy Holiday King room. Room was clean, bed was comfortable. Wine and cheese the afternoon of arrival hit the spot. Self-serve breakfast did not disappoint. Well done! Recommended.

Spruce Hill Manor is a lively 19th century manse that Janet and Adrienne, with the gentle assistance of Anthony, have turned into a floral feast for the eyes and laid back comfort for a home away from home. Janet and Anthony are constantly helpful and friendly. We brought family for an afternoon in the garden and Anthony brought out wines,... More
