New Hope is a quaint town famous for its antique shops and Bed & Breakfasts. I’ve never stayed at a B&B so I was curious to see what it would be like. Unfortunately though, since this trip was so last minute, all the cute B&Bs were sold out, and out of all the B&Bs I called to reserve, there was literally only 1 room left to spare in New Hope. Believe me, it is that popular!
So here is a little geography… New Hope is located to the west of the Delaware River in Pennsylvania. On the east side of the Delaware River is Lambertville located in New Jersey. Both cities, New Hope and Lambertville, are famous for their antique shops, quaint surroundings, restaurants, and B&Bs.

Our trip started Saturday afternoon where we arrived at the Inn At Hotel Du Village. Both my husband and I were blown away by the size of this estate and we thought we really SCORED a great place so last minute.
Here is the room with a Queen size bed. I thought it was okay, I wasn’t really feelin’ the whole country look, antique furniture, and wallpaper flower look, yes, as you can tell I am a novice at the whole B&B thing. However, I had to look on the positive side that I had just snagged the last B&B in New Hope.
The next day I woke up at 8:30 AM (that’s big) and was super excited to check out the breakfast at my very first B&B stay. I went downstairs and was pleasantly surprised how nice the main room looked in the morning. It had a more homey feel and didn’t feel as scary.
VERDICT for Inn At Hotel Du Village (B&B): 2 / 5
Although I was really happy to land a room in New Hope, the room didn’t have the look I was going for. Since this was my first B&B, I didn’t know any better. Going forward though, I know what kind of B&Bs to stay in, one with a slightly more modern touch and a TV.
The breakfast was definitely nice and the croissants were delicious. Warm croissants was such a treat early in the morning! Keep in mind many other B&Bs offer a lot more than just bagels and croissants for the same price, I’m talking about Eggs and French Toast. In addition, there is a French restaurant on the property, however I didn’t try it.
Personally, I wouldn’t stay here again because I like more modern style lodgings. This would make a lovely stay for those who want to be away from the downtown area of New Hope and are looking for a much more serene and calm environment. Also, if you love the country look with antique furniture, this is the place for you. Lastly, this Inn is about a 5 minute drive, less than 2 miles from Downtown New Hope.
