The Pennsbury Inn has some challenges. While we were there, one of the innkeepers was suffering from a physical issue, that impacted his mobility. Never the less, there were some things that were just not up to expectations for the price. Hopefully, as the innkeeper feels better, the inn will be able to improve.
The breakfast was not well prepared. Waffles were microwaved and smoothies were at room temperature, for example. Certainly, they did not even approach gourmet.
Upon entering the inn, there was clutter everywhere,old mail, boxes and other stuff, that made it uncomfortable. Some of the other public rooms were much tidier, but you had to go deeper into the house to see them.
There were other unrestful things as well.
That being said, the inn is in a good location for Longwood, which is wonderful, and other local interesting things.
Other reviewers have commented on the road noise. The innkeepers have provided options to help with this. The road noise did not bother us at all.
Hopefully, the innkeeper will recover and the inn will rise to its potential. It is in a great location for touring the area and it has the bones of a good garden.
