My boyfriend and I stayed at the Bancroft Manor this past weekend and had a wonderful experience. Mike was so helpful with directions and helping to plan our daily activities. Our room was very clean but cozy at the same time. The manor was the perfect location to downtown and we can't wait to visit again soon!

Room was spacious, clean, just wonderful. Breakfast was marvelous. Mike could not have been a better host. He just went out of his way to make our stay fantastic. Definitely would recomend this wonderful BnB.

Great house and proprietor. The neighborhood is quiet and conveniently located to Kennett Square. Visiting Longwood Gardens and Winterthur is highly recommended. Breakfast was very good. Only negative point is the on street parking. On the positive side, we did not have trouble finding parking, and a parking permit from the B&B is needed after certain times.

I called them to reserve a room. They told me that their inn is not suitable for toddlers. Basically they wont reserve a room for me since i have a toddler. It was disappointing. They need to publish this policy on their website so that they get know how much business they get.

The Policy pertaining to children has been on my web site for many years. There is a tab for "Rates and Policies" and on that page it is spelled out in Detail under the Heading Children as such: Children Due to antique furnishings, the B&B is not suitable for small children. Please call to discuss in detail. The person did... More

We had a very pleasant overnight at this B&B in the heart of Kennett Square. Michael was most hospitable and Frieda made us a wonderful breakfast, paying careful attention to my special dietary needs. Great location put us very close to Longwood Gardens and walking distance to several fine restaurants.

I'm confused by the recent post about the skimpy breakfast. I was just there (November 16-18, 2015) and the morning meal was very generous. We skipped lunch both days! I suppose someone who prefers a big hotel buffet might be disappointed, but that shouldn't be expected at a small, private b&b. We had fruit, a pastry and a hot entrée... More

The room was very attractive and the beds were quite cozy. The whole house was beautifully appointed with great attention to detail. The breakfasts were excellent and served in a pretty sun room. Michael, our host, was friendly, helpful and knowledgable about the area. We were able to walk into town each night for dinner. Longwood Gardens is about 5... More
