  • Not what it once was

    by 764bt on 2018-12-11 04:15 pm

    The Inn at Montchanin is a quaint and lovely cluster of small houses with nice gardens. The staff is very friendly, but the place is NOT what it once was. On a recent visit:
    - the fireplace did not work - the staff came over to fix, it worked for 15 minutes and then went out. the next day, we asked them to look into it again, we returned to the room with the fireplace going strong (who knows for how long) and the room temperature was 80+ degrees. We turned it off for the night, and it wouldn't work the next morning.
    - the phone didn't work - when we called to report the fireplace issue, we could hear the front desk, but they couldn't hear us - had to call on our mobile phone.
    - the furniture was worn - threadbare arms on the upholstered chair, chipped desk chair, and a terribly uncomfortable loveseat.
    - property showing wear - bed's coverlet was frayed at the edges.

    On the plus side, the sheets, towels, and robes are very nice, the staff very cheery and helpful (even though they couldn't fix the fireplace).

    This trip was a marked change from prior visits. The Inn has always been one of our favorite places, but it's clearly in need of some help from too much deferred maintenance.

    Also, Krazy Kat, the Inn's restaurant has fallen in quality and interest since earlier visits. The cuisine used to be a "wow", but not any longer. And service in the restaurant is just barely average.

    Hopefully, The Inn at Montchanin will return to former glory days and once again be the cozy, luxury destination it one was, but at them moment, it's a little sad by comparison.

  • Group Dinner at the Crowâs Nest

    Fantastic dinner with colleagues. Food was really good. Service was great. The only challenge was finding the entry for someone from out of town and parking.
    Would recommend the salmon and the chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting was fantastic.

  • Cute but waaay outdated

    No doubt it's cute in a 1950s, Beaver Cleaver sort of way. But let's be real, this place needs gutted and, even then, is not for business travelers or those who might arrive without a car (e.g. Uber).

    Let's start with the basics: lug your luggage up to the second floor to check in (nice front desk people) and then you are directed to what could be a several hundred yards to your building, which contains your suite. A courtesy shuttle would be nice, especially in the cold or inclement weather. And, that distance to the main building and absence of nearby dining alternatives, leaves room service as the only real option. Inside the room, welcome to your grandma's house, with old plaid couches, floral print drapes, an old Black & Decker microwave, TV trays (remember those?) and the cutest little TVs that were too old and too small 15+ years ago. The cheap cable package means a poor picture quality at any rate. Don't expect to be blown away by the free Internet (I'd pay for fast internet). Bottom line is that this is anything but ideal for business travelers and best when visited only during "good" weather.

  • Great Weekend Venue

    by jrjojo on 2018-10-29 02:27 pm

    Loved this Inn. Friendly staff; historic architecture; clever art; wide variety of rooms; fireplaces; towel heaters; stocked mini-fridge (non-alcoholic beverages).

    Wonderful food service at the Krazy Kat restaurant. Dinner and brunch (weekends). Good wine list. Imaginative chefs.

  • So cozy

    by Kim S on 2018-09-02 02:57 pm

    We have stayed at the Inn at Montchanin Village several times over the past few years and it is always a welcoming experience. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful. Our room was perfect with wonderful amenities. The location is excellant for visiting Longwood Gardens, Winterthur, Nemours, The Brandywine Museum and more. We always enjoy our meals at Krazy Kat's restaurant and the breakfast is fabulous. We look forward to returning again and again.
