Located in a nice and quiet street, this is good place to stay for no more than one night. The bed was very comfortable, but there were some overlooked details that should have been taken care of by now but can be easily solved, such as the lack of a night table in one side of the bed. The room...

The innkeeper/owner is taking this opportunity to respond to this review. Concerning the "bit overpriced", I highly encourage you, the Trip Advisor reader, to visit the bancroftmanor.com web site. Perhaps this reviewer is unfamiliar with B&B rates for the Kennett Square and surrounding area. From the B&B’s web site, you have the opportunity to review the room rates. All rooms...

We took a few days before Christmas to recharge. We visited Longwood Gardens and then stayed at Bancroft. The quiet, gentle atmosphere gave us time to rest and recharge and to enter the Christmas celebrations with energy and joy.

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.

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...

“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.”
