Staying at the Silverstone B and B is a treat which we were lucky enough to enjoy this past week. Located in the historic and beautiful Chestnut Hill area of Philadelphia, the home is a great blend of Victorian charm and modern comforts. We arrived on a snowy evening and had no trouble reaching it; all was shoveled clear. The...

I and my brother recently visited family in Chestnut Hill, PA and had the pleasure of staying at the Silverstone B & B. The accommodations were outstanding and the owners very friendly and very attentive. The home itself was something out of history and the breakfast was made to order and delicious. I felt as if we were staying with...

It's a beautiful place, very nice looking house and quite nice rooms too. Location is good, easy to find, ample parking. The room we had was ok, with our own bathroom, it was all clean and ready for us when we arrived except that it was probably 10° C inside... (nobody actually met us, we were given the outside door...

My wife and I had a two day stay at the Silverstone Bed & Breakfast and were disappointed by the experience after reading the bulk of the reviews here. I will start with the positive. We were allowed to pick out our room as the Silverstone was not fully booked. Though the room and bath were not overly inviting, the...

Because our guests were not happy with our service, we credited them for one night stay. However, we would like to add some explanation: Our guests have their own, fully-equiped kitchen. We usually ask them to clean this kitchen after their use, and most of them do it. If they do not clean after cooking – and sometimes they cook...

Yolantaroman, Owner at Silverstone Bed & Breakfast, responded to this review

I am very sorry that our guest from Kuala Lumpur (special discount, $115 per night, for the Institutes’ patients) did not feel at home in “Silverstone”. Its my fault, and, therefore, my apology and explanation is necessary: Quite often I treat our guests informally; I tell stories, jokes, anegdotes – without realizing that my behavior might be received as unprofessional....

What an incredible BB. We stayed as a couple over Thanksgiving. The hosts of the BB were amazing and they made our stay there a wonderful experience. The breakfast was extensive with anything you could ask for, the rooms were pristine, clean, with the character of an old Victorian mansion, the service was outstanding. We felt like we were treated...

This place is the best hidden gem in Philadelphia. We were amazed and felt like we were in Europe. The Room was large and well equipped. The home made food was incredible . The coffee was best I ever had. You will be so happy with this booking, so just do it and see for yourself

I spent 3 nights here while in the area to provide care for a family member. I come to the area often and usually stay in one of the chain hotels nearby, but I am very glad I chose to stay at Silverstone B&B during this trip. The owners are very available and radiate such sincere and heartfelt hospitality that...

Sometimes I am feeling that it is a privilege to be a host in a B&B , because there are such a nice people coming to stay with us. Some of them need only a tasty breakfast, other are searching for a homy place different than a hotel. And meeting these people often makes me a better person. Rom Roman

First, I am not a B & B person! Having said that, I must say my five night stay was comfortable and relaxed. I enjoyed my room and the house. A private bathroom was included. Breakfasts were wonderful and plentiful. Host and hostess were polite and professional. Guests have access to a washer/dryer. Being within walking distance, or short drive...

Dear CatCalifornia, Thank you for your review. To hear from you (an experienced tripadvisor's reviewer) that new coffee was good and that our PR manager was doing a great job was a great reward, especially for Rom. He's showed your review to Renee, and forgot to show it to Yolanta (who,as an B&B owner, doesn't need encouragement). Truly Yours, Rom

“We had a corner, Queen-sized room, which I would ask for again.”
  • The floor is actually hardwood painted over, and the walls brick, also painted over.
  • Only two pictures of the enormous bathroom.  I should have taken more!!
  • The Suite was very large.  They called it a 'room' but ....
  • You be the judge, room or suite?
  • A very comfortable queen-sized bed and delicious comforter.
