“The Standard by which we measure other B & B's!”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

The Woolverton Inn again proved to be a most special B & B. Staff ever so pleasantly accommodated our request for an early check-in. Bob, always the gracious host, let us know that the cookies were just about to be set out. (Sinfully delicious-- and Woolverton does share recipes.) Our room was inviting, spotlessly clean, fresh flowers on the dresser, a super-comfy bed, and two cozy chairs by the fireplace- the perfect setting to celebrate the anniversary of our first date. Breakfast the next morning was heavenly. The food here is top-notch, so selecting between two entrees is a challenge!
We have stayed at various B & B's in the tri-state area and inevitably end up comparing them to the Woolverton experience. While there are some very lovely places to stay, none has been able to match Woolverton's quality. They are still the standard by which we measure other B & B's.

Room Tip: The rooms in the Manor House are charming. If you prefer a newer or more secluded suite, try one of...

Unfortunately life has become very complicated and oftentimes we forget to slow down and enjoy life with the one that matters most. In the midst of this busy world my wife and I decided to do just that, slow down and enjoy life. Are we ever glad we did! Next week is our 26th year anniversary and we wanted to make it special and spend time with one another. We had heard about The Woolverton Inn and agreed to venture,out. We didn't share with the Inn keepers that we were celebrating an early anniversary and apparently we didn't have to. It appears that the way we were treated is the way they treat everyone who stays at their Inn. The house and grounds are spectacular and very romantic. The rooms are exceptionally clean. I can't remember the last time I slept so well, and if Bob thinks you need anything he goes out of his way to make sure that he provides. The breakfast was, and is, to die for. At check out Bob gave us a book describing and outlining the best Bed and Breakfast Inns in New Jersey. The truth of the matter, why would we look...we already found The Woolverton Inn.

Happy Anniversary! We are so happy you had a memorable anniversary and were able to relax and appreciate each other. One of the great things about the Woolverton, as well as the area, is that you can slow down and forget about everything if only for a short time. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience and we hope you will choose the Woolverton for many years to come.

$400 dollar a night cottage. What was wrong?

Ladybugs infested our cottage.
Windows don't close properly
Screens on the windows had more holes than swiss cheese
They didn't clean our cottage until mid afternoon. There are only 13 rooms!!!
Never used a vacuum in our cottage or the main dining area as evidenced by the cobwebs hanging over our table while eating breakfast.
Could you polish your silver?
Most important issue? No hospitality at all from the innkeepers. Absolutely none.
Folks our 25th anniversary $900 dollar 2 night romantic getaway was one to forget.

As always we appreciate your review of your experience at the Woolverton Inn.

We were shocked at the review that you posted on Trip Advisor. We thought that your stay with us was enjoyable based on the interaction you had with us as well as when we said good bye at check out. We truly feel terrible that you had such an unpleasant experience on your 25th anniversary, and hopefully we can make it up to you.

We do have to comment on the review you gave us. It is totally true that there were ladybugs in your room when you checked in. We were fortunate to have a wonderful weekend in November with unusually warm weather which brought the little critters inside. We immediately took care of the problem which you told us that all was well the next morning when we served you at breakfast. Your room was tided at 12:30 pm that day when you left to explore the area; therefore we are confused about the negative comment. The energy efficient windows are difficult to lock; however we would have been more than happy to have locked them had you requested. The screen you referred to has one small tear at the bottom of the screen. There are 8 windows in the room and I don’t think one tiny tear in the screen made your weekend a disaster. We are also dismayed on your comment on the hospitality. We had several encounters with you throughout your stay and thought everything was to your liking. We would like to make it up to you for your disastrous stay and encourage you
to contact us so we can possibly make amends.

BTW we polished the silver in the corner cabinet, it does look better!

My husband and I celebrated our 31st Anniversary here this past weekend. We stayed in Amelia's Room. Everything was beautiful and comfortable. The Innkeepers and staff were attentive and always helpful. Bed was comfy, fireplace inviting, window seat a treat. Afternoon tea and sweets were delish, and both breakfasts were AMAZING. The grounds were lovely, we even picked up a few goodies from the Stockton Market on Saturday and enjoyed them with a bottle of wine, out on the patio, just before sunset. This was a great relaxing option for dinner, after a nice lunch and lots of walking around the town of New Hope, PA earlier in the day. We hope to come back one day.

We stayed just one night here and regret not making it a long week end. The Cotswald Cottage exceeded our expectations. The innkeepers are especially gracious and recommended a lovely restaurant for our evening meal. After a comfortable night's rest on our four poster featherbed we were treated to the best breakfast we have ever had. We can't wait to go back again. There is plenty to do and see in the surrounding towns but we just enjoyed kicking back and relaxing on the beautiful grounds.

Carolyn and Bob run my favorite escape. My husband and I have had the pleasure of staying at the Woolverton Inn many times over the past 4 years. Every visit is exceptional. I truly cannot say enough about how welcome they make us feel and what a great time we always have. There is a relaxed elegance to the Wolverton Inn that is unique. At the same time the location provides amble opportunity to keep very busy-riding the rail trail, biking the quiet country roads, eating at local restaurants or just sitting and relaxing while watching the sheep graze.

We stayed here one night on our way home to Upstate NY. We were traveling with our German Shorthaired Pointer. Lots of fields for the dog to run. Beautiful rooms and a scrumptious breakfast. Very historic site and the innkeepers were extremely helpful.

Thank you for your comments. We are very fortunate that we are able to offer a dog friendly room to our travelers. When I travel I hate to leave Tom home, and I'm always grateful for pet friendly places. I hope your pooch enjoyed her little getaway.
