Bishop Victorian Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 September 2017

This is a very nice hotel. Be aware that there is no elevator and the 3rd floor is a bit steep. Room was very nice and roomy, newer TV, great kitchen setup with a small fridge a working stove with oven. Small but functional bathroom. Bedroom is small and would benefit from some rearranging. The mattress was VERY soft, needs to be replaced. We both had aching backs after 2 nights sleeping on the bed. The breakfast - touted as delivered to your door in a basket turns out to be instant oatmeal, a tiny container of orange juice and either a muffin or bagel. For the prices at this hotel, they could do a whole lot better without a lot of effort. Front desk folks were efficient but not terribly friendly. Will probably see what other hotels have to offer in the area on our next trip.

Room Tip: Top floor is pretty quiet but be prepared to hike up 3 flights of stairs. Pack light!

Dear Anansi,

Thank you for your review. We apologize for the mattress not being to your expectations.
We do not have a kitchen at the Bishop so we bring in the best products we can find to fill our baskets and to offer a selection to our guests.

We hope that you will visit us again and give us a second chance. Try the granola or pumpkin cream cheese muffins on your next visit.

Port Townsend is one of the best preserved Victorian Era port towns in America. If you like that time period, you will love the town and especially love this hotel. The building dates back to the 1800s and in fact the East side of the building still has the name of the cigar company that owned it back then. The inside is just as Victorian as the outside and the decor is awesome. Lots of photographs and furniture in the hallways from that Era. The only problem is that there were no elevators in the 1800 so this hotel doesn't have one either!

Decor in your room is just as good, yet the room functions just like a modern hotel. Microwave (with free microwave popcorn on the 1st floor), coffee maker, refrigerator, cable TV, WiFi, nice bathroom, etc. Our room had a modern heater, but the East side may have a fireplace (our room was on the west side but the receptionist said something about a fireplace when we came in and I saw some chimneys on the East side of the roof). So the atmosphere of the place is incredible.

Even better is the beautiful private garden in the back. There is a secluded gazebo that is surrounded by trees and plants, but it has LED lights that can make it brightly lit at night should you want to go out on a cool summer night.

Tip - ask for the 1st floor (No elevators) as there are only 2 rooms at that level. We stayed in #25, but I would imagine that #26 would be just as good - it may even have a fireplace.

Room Tip: 1st floor is easiest to go in/out as well as to go out to the garden

Thank you for your 5-star review. We are pleased that you enjoyed all of our amenities, except for the stairs of course. Yes suite 26 on the ground floor does have a fireplace and is very cozy as are our other suites on the upper floors.

The gazebo in the back gardens has become a welcoming place for guests to relax and chat with other guests and our doggie guests also enjoy the gardens.

We stayed at the Bishop with 4 people and two dogs and booked a two bedroom suite to do so comfortably. The place is right downtown with easy access to restaurant and stores and has off street parking. Service was great and the suite was nicely decorated, very clean and comfortable. Good beds. Dogs got their own beds and toys and treats. The price was a bit steeper than what we usually try for, but the quality of the place certainly made up for it.

Room Tip: Good room descriptions on the internet, rooms were not noisy but the hotel also offers ear plugs for...

I have been staying at the Bishop Victorian Hotel for years. Every time I plan a trip, being professional or personal, I stay at the Bishop. It's location is perfect. It's set back from what can be a very busy street but close enough to everything.
I love the staff and charm the old three story building has to offer. Every room is different. So If you're looking for a cookie cutter hotel, keep looking.

Room Tip: Every room is good
