We spent a weekend at the Bancroft Manor B&B recently and had a wonderful stay. The house has so much charm and is beautifully decorated; the rooms were so cute, clean and comfortable. The Innkeeper, Mike, is a terrific host, catered to our every need and was so helpful with restaurant suggestions and local activities. He also serves a delicious...

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!

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...

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...

“The room with the attached bathroom suited us well, but for families with children it would be too small; in the front of the house there are two bedrooms with a Jack and Jill bathroom. The Amish room (has Amish-built furniture) had a bath in the hallway. There is no downstairs powder room, so this was a slight issue for my elderly mother.”

“Our favorite room in the summer is the Amish Room, because it comes with its own screened "sleeping porch." This is a lovely place to sit at the end of a busy day, to enjoy a glass of wine with the cool evening breezes and the night-time sounds.”
