Great and beautiful resort. Excellent service and delicious food. About 90 people stayed at this resort all a part of the wedding. Grounds and the wedding venue are so perfect. Several couples have been there several times before and my girlfriend and me would now highly recommend it.

I recently stayed for two nights in late April. We were in the lower level of the Packhouse building. Our room had a great view with comfortable rocking chairs outside. The room was the biggest I have ever been in. My husband loved the giant whirl pool tub. The bed was very comfortable, the fireplace was really a welcome addition to the room. The bathroom was huge with lots of counter space. The breakfast, which was included in our package, was delicious. I especially enjoyed the blueberry scones. We ate in the restaurant twice for dinner and really enjoyed the service and the food. The grounds were immaculately maintained. We took several walks around the property and saw interesting birds and small animals. The help was exceptional. Other hotels could really learn something from this Inn on how to treat guests. We will be returning to this Inn in the future!

We visited the Glasbern Inn mid-week at the end of March 2022. I can highly recommend this place for a quick getaway if you live in the Greater Philadelphia area, or for a longer stay if you live farther away. The people really make a place nice to visit. All the employees were friendly and relaxed. We enjoyed meeting them. We stayed in the upper Packhouse Suite. It was very clean, spacious, and luxuriously appointed. It was cold during our visit so we really appreciated the gas fireplace. Our king size Sleep Number bed was comfortable. Only one sink in the bathroom, but tons of room to put our toiletries on the counter. The shower was nicely tiled. The room comes with a full breakfast included. We ate dinner twice in the Glasbern restaurant. The food and service were excellent. The only reason I didn’t give this place 5 stars were a couple of just slightly annoying things. First, the “hot” water was, at best, just warm. Also the switch powering the Sleep Number bed wasn’t labeled, so it took us a while to figure out why we were getting an error message on the controller. We plan to return sometime later this year when the weather is nicer. Thanks, Glasbern Inn, for a wonderful stay.

Just returned from a night at The Glasbern Inn and it was lovely. Surprised to see the recent negative reviews because our experience was wonderful. The grounds are exquisitely kept and even though it is winter and things are not in bloom, the grounds were still beautiful. The food was delicious and well prepared. We ate in the dining room for dinner and the service was top notch. We had breakfast delivered and it came hot and on time. The rooms were clean, comfortable and well kept. The only complain we had was that our room was not ready when we arrived. Otherwise it was the perfect place to escape for a night and we would not hesitate to return

i read with amusement people complaining about the dress code. it is clearly stated on the website so that should not have been a surprise. now for my review. i gave it 3 stars for several reasons. we were there for a special birthday, a party of 14 in the private room off of the main dining room. lovely ambience. i get it, everywhere is short staffed, but for the price point, we should have had 2 servers, not just 1. not once did she offer to top off water or coffee. several had the filet mignon which came with veggies & mash potatoes. 4 string beans were the veggie. 4. my veggie campenelli was good. many at the table ordered the chocolate tort for dessert. it was rock hard. all of us that ordered it were unable to finish. she spilled half the crackers off the cheese and cracker tray and i felt like she should have brought another out free of charge. there was a good selection of salads and the glasbern & winter salad were excellent. the wine selection was very good. i will probably go again for a very special occasion and it will have to be special because of the price, but will wait until they are better staffed

Glasbern My family loves impromptu spur of the moment get aways and have we've stayed in many different hotels of every level. Two years ago my wife and my son who was 5 at the time stayed here and had a great experience. so much we couldn't wait to return. We booked this trip about two weeks ago and asked about putting a roll away in our room like the last time we stayed. He said they couldn't put a roll away in the garden cottage. However, we can stay in the pack house. The reservationist never asked the age of our additional guest. On our way to the hotel my wife called the front desk and asked it was to late for the 3 of us to eat she said we were fine, they were doing seating till 8:30. When we walked in Amanda looked at us and said that children weren't allowed and we weren't dressed properly. Again I will reiterate that we stayed here once before, and the 3 of us ate in the restaurant in jeans and sweatshirts. Her attitude was rude and condescending. It was very unprofessional and discourteous to stand there in front of our child and make it seem like he had done something wrong. If the room wasn't paint for we wouldn't left right then and there but we tried to make the best of it because it was late at night and we had driven four hours. I would like to point out that Anthony at the desk is an absolute sweetheart, seeing how upset we were getting was trying his best to fix the situation anyway he could. We went to our room and ordered our dinner. The food wasn't very good, the complete opposite of how we thought the food was last time. I ordered the filet mignon it was tough. My wife ordered spaghetti primavera and a crab cake. She stated it tasted like catered food and not freshly prepared. The bed in the room was a sleep number bed and it was uncomfortable. Obviously we won’t be staying here again, since at this point it’s an overpriced adults only getaway clearly trying to be more than they are with an uptight dress code and poor quality food.

The Inn has an extensive description on the website describing their covid protocols, including that they follow cdc guidelines. When we checked in no one, neither guests inside nor a single member of staff was wearing a mask. When I asked the manager about this she said that the owner was not requiring masks any staff, even those not vaccinated, but that "most" of the staff had been vaccinated. The cdc recommends masks indoors for all unvaccinated people and for vaccinated people in areas of high transmission, which includes pennsylvania. We thought about leaving, but opted to stay because we would have forfeited a deposit of hundreds of dollars and we were staying in a separate cottage. We ordered room service for both dinner and breakfast instead of eating in the dining room. The food was OK, but arrived almost thirty minutes late for both meals. The room and the grounds were nice. The pool was closed and the main dining room was closed for renovation. At 8 am a service technician arrived to service a heating boiler in the basement of our cottage, which woke us up and generated a strong heating oil smell. We had to eat breakfast with the door open (50 degrees outside). Overall, not the experience expected from a high end accomodation.

My husband booked two nights at the Glasbern for a little getaway. The atmosphere was nice and the room was clean, but that’s about it. We ended up cutting our two night stay down to one and here’s why: We had a dinner reservation at 7:30. The lady at the front desk called to see if we wanted to move our reservation up to 6:00 since they had an opening. No big deal. We went down to the bar and had a couple of drinks before dinner. When we went upstairs to the dining room for our reservation, they told us we had to stay downstairs by the bar because of the dress code. We didn’t realize there was one, but we weren’t dressed sloppy by any means. I had a dress on and my husband had on jeans, a nice shirt and sneakers. Another gentleman who was seated in the dining room was wearing similar attire. Downstairs by the bar was empty. The dining room upstairs only had two other couples eating. My husband asked if he went to the room to change if we could sit upstairs and he was told no. Again, it’s not like the dining room upstairs was packed. 10 minutes later we were told by one of the staff members that the manager said we could be moved upstairs to the dining room. Now for the food: we ordered the crab and shrimp cocktail appetizer. For $19 it was nothing special. Pretty flavorless. We both got the duck for dinner which was over $30. Again, nothing special, no flavor, mediocre at best. You’d think for the price of the food and their strict dress code the service and food would be amazing but it was sorely lacking. We were pretty turned off by the place at this point but didn’t want to leave right away since we’d been drinking. When we got back to the room later there was a note saying sorry about the miscommunication regarding the dress code. It’s a new policy that hasn’t been 100% enforced. They gave us a $75 gift card and said they hoped to see us in the future. So if the dress code hasn’t been 100% enforced why was it so strictly enforced with us? Why did they say no when my husband asked if we could move to the basically empty dining room if he went to get changed? We stayed the night and quickly left the next morning. Other than the nice aesthetic this place has nothing to offer. We’d never stay here again.

So, I have stayed here more than a dozen times the last 15 years and Introduced multiple friends to the spot including my friends who booked both a 50th birthday and their daughter’s wedding here. Months before the wedding we called at least 8 times to book a room and no one answered. We had booked here before with several different couples and knew that unanswered callls and ignored voice mail messages was common, So, we kept trying. Just about to book an alternative hotel, the bride’s mother offered to book rooms for several wedding guests who had the same experiences. I’ve stayed in just about every room on the property and was surprised to find m, upon my arrival, that I was booked in a $375 a night room. I was familiar with the exact room having stayed in it several times before. I asked the registrar why I was not in the Packhouse at the wedding guest rate and she assured me that this room I was in was less expensive. This of course was not true as I had stayed in the exact room several times before. She also asked if I “wanted to have breakfast” and insisted that we pick a seating time. Although I did indeed want the breakfast that came with the $375 a night room, I had never before been asked to commit to a meal time. The wedding food and experience was less than stellar. Moving to cocktail hour I was offered a short rib, it was so dry I was choking by the time I was served at the bar. The remainder of the appetizers were reheated frozen items. The salad was bland and salmon moist but also tasteless. I dropped my fork on the floor and let the server know. She picked it up from the floor and set it on my plate. The desserts were nicely presented but dry snd also tasteless. Having eaten dinner and breakfast her numerous times I was looking forward to seeing what they could do for a wedding, I was not impressed.

Loved everything about this place. The grounds were gorgeous, the room was very nice, restaurant was great - the breakfast offered a ton of choices and dinner was delicious! We had a lot of fun playing pickle ball and enjoying the outdoor pool. Staff were friendly and helpful. We can’t wait to return!
