My experience staying at the Burbridge Street Bed and Breakfast

3.6 on May 12, 2017

I really enjoyed Marney's hospitality, her smile, her dedication to make this a great staying for me. She is a very caring person, passionate about history, architecture and her job, which is making our passage in her bed and breakfast a very happy one. I appreciated her interactions, wanting to get to know us better and her vast experience gained while travelling in various countries and cities all over the world. I loved listen to her stories. The only one thing I struggled with was the presence of the 2 lovely cats that also live in the house. For allergic people like me, that could be a great challenge, even with medications to keep the sneezing at the lowest possible level. Overall, I nevertheless did enjoy my staying at the Burbridge street B&B and recommend you go spend a few nights and days at that place. Thank you Marney !! :)


PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!!!

This was the most wonderful experience. We had such a comfortable room and were really taken care of. Breakfast was beautiful with lots of great conversation and we received some great advice about what to see in Philly. The decor is fantastic and if I am ever in Philadelphia again I will not wait to reserve a room here. In fact, I am very tempted to go back to Philly just so I can stay here! My twin sister and fiance were with me and we will never forget Marney and how great our brief stay here was! Just perfect!


Burbridge street B&B

Found this little charmer last minute when needing a room close to the Philadelphia Marathon. Hotel rooms were overpriced and found this "best kept secret" in Germantown area of Philly. Our hostess was gracious , intelligent and recommended several modes of transportation to get to the marathon. I would definitely stay here every time I would need a place to stay anywhere near Philly!


Lovely house and great hostess

We loved it here. It was a beautiful old mansion with two adorable cats and and great morning conversation with the hostess and guests. All the breakfast fruit, preservatives, and delicious breads was also great.


very nice B&B

Marney was very nice and gave us a warm welcome by introducing the area and the city. She prepared a wonderful breakfast every morning and talked a lot about her life and the neighbourhood. The room was small but very nice with lovely furniture and sweet decoration. We really enjoyed our stay at Marneys :)


Regina's stay at the Burbridge St. B&B

4.6 on August 07, 2016

A neighborhood in transition, this house is real and honest. A lovely owner/host, who's knowledge of Philly is well worth the visit. A remarkable home, more than just a B&B; I am looking forward to going back and bring my family and friends with me for a stay and view of this historic area.


Exceptional B&B

I absolutely loved staying here. Mrs. Hague is so kind and welcoming. My friend and I were getting into town at some pretty crazy times, and Mrs. Hague was so accommodating and easy to work with. The house is beautiful and clean and has such a pleasant atmosphere. To top it all off, the room was very affordable. I wish I could have stayed longer! If I'm in Philadelphia again, this will be where I stay every single time, no doubt about it.


Two days with Marnie

4.6 on November 16, 2015

If you are a believer in B&B's you will love this one. Burbridge is warm and homey with Marnie extremely knowledgeable of Philadelphia's great sites. I only wish we had more time to explore the museums. Guess another trip needs to be planned. We had a fantastic dinner at a Jazz club and invited Marnie to join us, which she was able to do. All in all, a great place to stay with a great hostess.


first b&b experience VERY positive.....

4.0 on October 20, 2015

I WANTED TO LEAVE FIVE STARS ALL AROUND BUT THIS WEBSITE WOULDNT LET ME :[ dont know why.... So... this was my FIRST time staying at a b/b. it was everything i had envisioned and more. Marney, the owner of this home, and hostess; could not have been more lovely! The minute i walked in I felt welcome. Scent of blueberry muffins flood your senses as you walk in and lingered throughout my stay. The stately empire victorian home is 3 floors with plenty of privacy and it's clean / tidy. If you love cats, you'll be extra pleased. Cleopatra and Queen Bess greet every guest with a little meow and love to snuggle in your lap- if you'll have them. My room was darling and extra clean with every amentity you could imagine, Wi Fi, cable TV w. every station, a desk, water/coffee/tea, library, clock, ample lighting, hair dryer, persian rugs, tons of towels, blankets and pillows, plus ample storage for clothing. the bed was very comfie and warm. Lights were kept on in the upper halls so guests could see in the middle of the night. 3rd floor where i was, even had its own fully equipped kitchen. 3rd floor bathrooom was shared but presented no conflict whatsoever. I didnt have to wait my turn ever. it was nice and large too. Clawfoot tub was narrow for showering, but very doable! The BEST part though were the many guests i met from ALL over the world!! Every day different people graced Marneys breakfast table, which had every imaginable food on it - teas, coffees, breads, cereals, fruits, milks, jams, and more. Marney explaned in great detail all the touristy things to do- but i was not there for that. I'll be staying with Marney on all future visits. She's friendly, warm and gracious. I felt like i was in my grandmothers home and was treated as such....Her hospitality is impeccable!
