Gatsby Mansion
Ranked #12 of 92 Victoria B&B and Inns
Reviewed 4 October 2011

My friend and I stayed the Gatsby Mansion for 2 nights. It's a very charming B & B within walking distance of downtown Victoria. The breakfast was included and quite delicious! Rooms are fairly large, very cozy and clean. Loved the claw foot tub. Caroline, the woman working at the front desk is truly the "hostess with the mostess". She's excellent and helped make our stay great. I highly recommend staying at the Gatsby!

We love staying in hotels with character. This place has character and then some. We chose the least expensive option as we were only there for 1 night, and it was awesome. We had a queen bed with a separate little parlor with the tv and fireplace. Breakfast the next morning was included and we had any choice off the menu. Food was fabulous and plentiful. The only difficulty was upon entering it was very confusing to find the check in. Once we figured it out it seemed fairly obvious. Would highly reccommend the Gatsby and will definitely return. PS great view of the horbor even from the inexpensive room.

Room Tip: I think any room would be great--we had the cheap option and it was fabulous

We love historic B & B'S and this one surpassed our expectations! The staff obviously enjoys their jobs as they go well above and beyond to make sure you are completely satisfied. Very helpful with whitch local attractions to visit. The food was prep was attractively preapared and very delicious. Can't go wrong here for great hospitality. Our rooms were neat, tidy, and full of antique character to match the mansion's historic period.

Room Tip: Front rooms views the harbor. The top floor has more stairs to climb.

Thank-you for your comments, we apologize for the confusion that you experienced with the two properties being on the same block. However, the properties are very different from each other, are clearly signed and our employees are quite familiar with where they report. Thanks again for your comments, Rita A. Roy, Pres & CEO

After exiting the 90 minute ferry ride in the fog we arrived at the Victorian waterfront. From here we walked approximately 2-3 blocks to the Gatsby Mansion. We arrived to a charming, huge, old mansion. Upon walking up to the front desk we were greeted by Caroline who went above and beyond to make our first impression brilliant. We walked upstairs to the 3rd floor to a quaint 2 bedroom suite that overlooked the harbor. When we walked downstairs and out the door to begin our journey Caroline came running out after us to make sure we had directions, needed any suggestions or guidance. Truly fantastic. Upon returning that evening at 9:30 PM after a long day of walking around and touring Victoria we were greeted by Stan. My husband asked if it was too late to have a nightcap to which Stan replied, absolutely not, join me and the boys. We sat for another 3 hours and told stories, listened to stories and had great company. Caroline, Stan and the other 2 young men we had cocktails with made us feel like we were staying in their home. The next morning, after not feeling exactly on my A game, Caroline recognized this and offered me green tea for detoxifying. I will stay here every time I revisit Victoria!

Room Tip: You don't need a thing. You are staying in a hotel that is like a B & B.
