Great comfortable bed. Gracious host. Nice art work all around the house. Easy parking on the street and safe at night.


A most attentive hostess!

We enjoyed our stay and would go back. The room was filled with original art pieces as well as the requisite coffee maker, water and towels etc. The neighbourhood was worth a look itself and we enjoyed the stories Marnie tells of the local colour! Parking was free and we were right out the front. Train took about 20 minutes into downtown and was part of the fun. Breakfast could have used some more hot menu items but certainly you were spoiled for choice with the fruit and toast selection. Not for those allergic to cats but great fun for aficionados. Ask Marnie about "the other resident" or you know, don't. (:


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!


Charming European Style B&B

5 on March 24, 2017

My Husband and I found this adorable, homey little place for a short stay of 4 nights in Philly, although a blizzard greeted us upon arrival we found cozy sanctuary to come back to every evening after our long days. I titled the review "European Style B&B" because it did feel very much like a stay in Europe. Breakfast in the morning was a sit down affair with a relaxed conversational atmosphere. The rooms are airy and well furnished with a vintage style. Marney has two cute and clean cats who will give you as much attention as you give them. They have free roam of the house but stay out of the rooms when guests keep the doors shut. Marney has a wealth of knowledge about the surrounding area and a variety of topics so breakfast will never have an awkward moment. There is 1 (remodeled modern) bathroom per floor with bedrooms so you share with the other guests on your floor, she never runs out of hot water and we didn't have any problems with timing. Our experience was 100% comfortable and positive. This B&B is in a great location within a few minutes of bus stops, a gas station and a Septa station. The neighborhood is safe and pleasant. Definitely would book again and will be going out for drinks with Marney when we move to Philly in a few months to catch up!


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
