We stayed in a renovated room which was very beautiful and comfortable! From the moment we walked in until the time we left (just overnight) all of the staff from top to bottom made us feel like we were at home. The food in the restaurant featured a recently revised menu, and it was delicious. The calamari app was perfect,... More

We actually came across this place as an overflow from nearby New Hope and are happy we did. One can overlook a few items such as no elevator, even though our room was on the third floor, and floors that are not always level, in a building that is over 200 years old. But there are a number of nice... More

We only wish we would have seen Fox's show Hotel Hell with Gordon Ramsey BEFORE we ate at this place! Because we will Never eat there again. Food was mediocre at best and even though the waiter was efficient it dosent make up for the High prices, especially after seeing the filth of the place on national TV. This place... More

The wallpaper needs to be changed in the hallways and rooms. The shower pressure is bad and the water runs from hot to cold - really difficult to get warm water. The free breakfast consists of 1/2 a bagel not even a whole bagel and yogurt. My credit card was overcharged and I am still fighting to get my refund.

Moldy Don't do it!! No one there. Key left in envelope!! Bathtub faucet continually dripping. Peeling wallpaper, old sheets, dirty bathroom, lights not working. No breakfast. No response from owner. I read that a "Hotel Hell" episode was filmed in this place. Not familiar with the show, but it describes my experience.

This was a neat old place. Full of history. Almost 250 years old. George really did stay here. So did his Hessian prisoners after the First Battle of Trenton! This alone makes it a worth while place to stay. The place was clean and not in bad shape, contrary to other reviews. However, the room was never made up after... More

In Newtown for a funeral and, wandering the main street, saw this very inviting property. Had a wonderful dinner. We were the only people in the dining room, but there was a special party in another room. We worried that our service might suffer, but it did not. Both had filet mignon, which was perfectly done, with simple and tasty... More

I just don't know what to say. The place feels "heavy". You don't want to spend time in your room or in the hotel. Let me share. I arrived early and was told that the room wasn't ready. The guest had just left. No problem. I paid in advance for the two nites. Oh, I was told on the phone... More
