We were welcomed graciously; our room was comfortable and nicely appointed; the breakfasts are generous and freshly prepared; and the location near downtown Dover is very convenient for walking to drinks and dinner. The staff is friendly and attentive, and the whole experience is calming and serene. Even the bath products smell wonderful and create a sense of luxury. Definitely... More

Wonderful old home, built for a cotton magnate in the 19th century, room was excellent, breakfast lavish and wonderful...a little pricier than the Hampton Inn in Dover (which is perfectly acceptable just not romantic like this B&B). The owners, the Pridgens, were wonderful (Mrs. gave a lecture on the history of the property at breakfast). Will definitely go back, it... More

I've stayed in B&Bs before & I have to say this was one of the nicest I've been to. We had room 2, The Chamber, it has a... More

Went here to celebrate Mother's Day! Place is beautiful and the service is great! My husband and I had the asparagus quicker which came with a chive scone. OMG! The scones are to die for! I could eat a dozen or more, they were awesome! Parents had the crab salad sandwich and the spring vegetable melt. They said they were... More

Let me preface this review by saying that this was my first stay in a B&B, so I don't have any direct experience to refer to. I also think 5* is Perfect which no place will be. That being said, my wife and I had a great stay at the Silver Fountain Inn and Tea Parlor. We started off by... More

Many varieties of tea from which to choose, elegant china, flaky scones,creative sandwiches and rich desserts. Pam was attentive to our every need and encouraged us to wander around the inn to look at the elegant rooms. She provided a detailed and interesting history... More

This inn is a beautiful Victorian gem with many of the original details intact, the beds are comfortable and the rooms are spotless. The breakfasts are delicious. Pam and Jim will take good care of you and can offer excellent advice on things to do and where to eat. Highly recommend.

We booked a room at the Silver Fountain Inn at the last minute. On top of that we had a very late arrival time. Pam could not have been more helpful. She left a note on the door with everything that we needed to know to access our room. As soon as we stepped in the door, we knew we... More
