We live in Victoria, but decided to stay at the Gatsby Mansion for our anniversary. What a gem! We loved it there! The vintage accommodations, so carefully preserved and well-maintained. It was like stepping back in time. The complimentary "Breakfast Tea" in the morning was amazing. For an authentic, lovely and memorable stay in Victoria, that is close to everything...

We stayed in the motel suites at the back of the mansion house itself - it was well equipped and functional and had a small balcony with a view of the bay where we could see the sea planes landing and taking off. This part of the hotel felt neglected and the main mansion hotel was undergoing repairs and painting...

Thank you for your comments regarding your stay in the Huntingdon Manor. The Huntingdon Manor is a hotel not a motel and has undergone extensive refurbishments over the past two years. The Gatsby Mansion is presently undergoing refurbishments of some of its guestrooms and will reopen in mid February.

We took our family to high tea for the first time. It was casual which was good for us. Good food. Holiday tea was very good. Joanne was a great waitress. She shared a lot of fun Canadian facts. We will go back.

Thank you for your comments regarding your recent afternoon tea at the Pendray Restaurant in the Gatsby Mansion. The Mansion was once a private family home and although elegant and historic- it is not stuffy or pretentious. People coming for tea can relax and feel at home in their jeans or more formal attire.

Historic building. Beautifully decorated interior. A nice selection of sandwiches and sweets. My only critique is that I found the service to be a bit slow considering it was not very busy when I was there. I have been to afternoon tea at several venues in Victoria and know that it is an experience not to be rushed. Even so,...

We went to Victoria for tea and decided to get 2 rooms at the mansion. It was worth it. The rooms were elegantly dressed and the location was perfect. Everyone from the servers to the front deck to the gardener was very nice and friendly. This is an experience that we will never forget

Haunting atmosphere. We needed a key to get into the house which made it feel like we were staying in a house and not a hotel but still had the hotel convenience. Breakfast in the morning was included and was ok and very convenient for coffee juice and toast. Rooms were clean and comfortable.

We took the ferry from Port Angeles to Victoria for the day and hoped to have afternoon tea at the Fairmont Empress. It was booked, so the young woman at the Visitor's Centre suggested Gatsby Manor as an alternative. It was perfect, great tea & food and the young woman who served us was lovely. The location was perfect also,...

Thank you for your comments regarding your experience having high tea in the Gatsby Mansion. We are sorry that there was miscommunication regarding your sandwich selections.
