My husband and I always travel to the New Hope/lambertville area for our anniversary and usually try to stay at a different bed & breakfast. This was our first time at Chimney Hill. The innkeeper Rich was very friendly however did not offer to show us around the property or to our room like other places we have stayed at in the area. Our room was on the dark side (Renaissance room), however we did enjoy the fireplace in the room and the sheets/bedding was very comfy. A nice plus was the sangria and chips and guacamole provided at 5. We enjoyed the stone room with comfy couches and cozy fireplace. There was always bottled water provided along with complimentary liquor. The alpacas were cute and it was fun to feed them.
HOWEVER what could have been a 4 star review changed the next morning at breakfast. We arrived 10-15 min after the start time of breakfast and were told that they were already out of the main breakfast special which was a specialty quiche. This is completely unacceptable for the $350/night that the inn Charges! Breakfast is supposed to be part of the package price and all we got was simple scrambled eggs, 2 pieces of bacon and a few home fries. The inn knows ahead of time how many guests are staying there, so there should be more than enough for everyone to have the breakfast. As I mentioned we have been to a lot of B & B's in the area and this was the most simple and plain breakfast we received - especially for the price! We mentioned it to Rich when we left and while he apologized, it didn't make up for the experience or for the amount we paid to stay there.
Will we be back? Definitely not, when there are so many other choices to stay at in the area, for a much more reasonable cost.
