Highly recommend this bed and breakfast. I have stayed at many, and this one is outstanding. Rooms are beautifully appointed, and the Christmas decorations were tasteful and warm. Mike is a gracious host. We'll be back.

Liked it. Selected suite because I needed to work, but the second room is another bedroom. Owner very accommodating and rearranged furniture to make a table a desk. Bed VERY high and a bit hard for my taste, but all in all, a nice B&B within walking distance of restaurants and shops in the area.

Pleasantly surprised when we arrived at Bancroft. Our room was IMMACULATE and very roomy (we stayed in the suite). Mike, the innkeeper was friendly and very professional. We were a little concerned about the steps to the 2nd floor, but Mike carried EVERYTHING upstairs for us! The bed was soooooooooooooo comfortable and the comforter and pillows were gorgeous! Mike even had a nightlight in the bathroom (smart), so we weren't in total darkness.
I would stay here again if I came back to Kennett Square.

Room Tip: The Longwood Suite was the largest of the three rooms at the B&B (could have easily had a child...

Charm, relaxation and friendliness are all thoughts that come to mind regarding our stay at the Bancroft. The manor has many glorious architectural treasures to admire, plenty of common areas for relaxation and reading, and Mike, the innkeeper, was most accommodating and friendly. Our room was very comfortable and clean, and Mike did show us the other rooms before guests arrived to check-in, and likewise, they were just as clean and cozy. Mike was also very helpful with suggestions about area attractions and restaurants. We also got some educational facts about Kennett Square from Mike. We had a very enjoyable stay and hope to return soon. Cheers, Ric & Nic

This beautiful B&B is impeccably clean and well designed for the comfort of guests. The rooms are graceful and full of character: mine had its own private sun porch. The B&B is within walking distance of the town of Kennett Square, which has many interesting restaurants and shops. The breakfast was delicious. There is coffee and soda available all day in the gracious dining room. There is a beautiful, old-fashioned front porch too. All in all, an extremely pleasant place to stay.

Very conveniently located in my parents' hometown. Can walk uptown to shops and restaurants. The owner, Mike, is always available to help with your needs. Rooms are a delight, with very comfortable beds, elegant pillows and linens, and modern private bathrooms. We have stayed here many times and will continue to do so.

Enjoyed our stay at the Bancroft Manor B&B. Room was very nice, clean, and cool on a 90 degree afternoon. Bed was comfy and the sitting room was quaint with a mural that reminded me of Longwood Gardens. Speaking of Longwood Gardens, the B&B is right down the road, town of Kennett Square is a short walk with charming shops and restaurant. Street is quiet--which is a plus as State Street in town can be a bit noisy. Mike is wonderful and very helpful. Really enjoyed our stay-wish it could have been for more than one night!
