Just returned from a "girl's weekend" with my sister, friend and their grown daughters. We picked Doylestown as a charming town with lots to do and it and the surrounding area didn't disappoint.
First the pros of Hargrave House: location is great, walk out the door to shops and restaurants; beds are super comfortable although not sure they were all kings as advertised; great having the Keurigs in the rooms and mini frigs; very clean.
Cons: breakfast is not what I would expect from a high quality B&B, yes they make eggs to order or French toast but absolutely no baked goods like muffins, etc. breads were all prepackaged and when oatmeal was offered, at first they were going to use instant packs! Not what I have ever experienced at a nice B&B. In fact everything was from Costco. Wonder why they don't pick up some local baked goods from the bakery two doors away?
No comfortable sitting areas anywhere in the rooms or in a common area.
One of our group tried to take a shower one morning and there was no hot water. The response was somewhat incredulous as though my friend had to be mistaken and no real apologies made.
So overall, it is a relatively nice B&B but not sure it lives up to its reputation.
