"Cute, Charming Hotel located in the Brandywine Valley"
Overall Score3.5/ 5
The Brandywine River Hotel is located in Chadds Ford off of Route 1, within minutes of many attractions like Longwood Gardens or Chaddsford Winery. The hotel is set back off the main road behind some shops, an art gallery and a restaurant called Brandywine Prime, Seafood and Chops. This is not your typical hotel more like a bed and breakfast atmosphere. They are small, charming, historic, European style with décor that reflects the country setting and captures the essence of the Brandywine Valley. Amenities include continental breakfast, afternoon tea with cookies, and complimentary parking-plenty of space for busses, fitness center and small meeting rooms. I would recommend this hotel to any leisure traveler especially weddings or bus groups.

"It’s fine for the price."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The room was clean and pleasant;but it really needed some Fabrize. It had a slightly sour oder. If you had a wet face cloth, the only place to hang it was the rack over the toilet which would then drip on the person using the toilet. But the shower did have a grab bar. The mattress was very comfortable. Wish you had a paper copy of the TV channels so you didn’t have to claw through the MENU.

Lovely grounds, fabulous restaurant, and a friendly and helpful staff. Everything was perfect except for the bed pillows. They were hard and lumpy.
