We were visiting our son at college right around the corner and this lovely bed and breakfast was recommended to us. Janet greeted us like a family member and we were so pleased we decided to stay here instead of a hotel in the city! The room was well appointed, spacious, clean and just charming and we already booked another... More

Let me just clear the reasons why we stayed here. Most of the hotels we were interested in were fully booked and we therefore had to fall back on to this bed & breakfast. And frankly, we weren't disappointed. Our two rooms were clean, spacious and and had lots of character. Bathrooms were kinda small but you are in a... More

My wife and I just returned from our first visit to Spruce Hill Manor and we enjoyed ourselves so much that we are already planning to return. Janet was the perfect hostess, not only giving us advice on where to eat, and current events in the City, but also even driving us to the Museum so that we would not... More

I had a lovely two-night stay at Spruce Hill Manor. The house and service were impeccable. My room was charming, clean, well-equipped, and comfortable. The atmosphere was welcoming, yet private and calm. The hostess took pride in offering a personalized and discrete touch to her service. She was accommodating and helpful - even when my departure schedule was delayed. The... More

We had a lovely stay in Philadelphia. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable. Breakfast had a large variety and was delicious. The fresh baked warm cornbread is unforgettable. It is amazing how beautiful the house is inside and out. A lot of time and effort is put in the landscaping, furnishing and decorating by the sweet and attentive innkeeper... More

A wonderful place to enjoy the Philadelphia' life.The place is close from the center in a nice neighberhood: quiet and cute. The transport are close also: tram, trolley, so it's very easy to join the center. Jeanet is a really nice hostess who really takes care of her guests. I really recommand this place you will not be disapointed.

If staying in philly for pleasure or work, i would certainly choose to stay at Spruce hill manor again. We were visiting Philly with my family and our stay was excellent. Janet is the most attentive innkeeper I've met. From the welcome on the first day, to the maps, guides and advice, to the laundry, breakfast, etc. She strives to... More

I found everything about Spruce Hill Manor to be warm and comfortable, from Janet's welcoming to the room and bed to the special treatment afforded to accommodate my vegan requirements. The location is ideal for access to UPenn and I hope that I will be able to secure a stay there during my future visits.
