Unexpected jewel for great price
September 27th, 2011

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 parlour 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 recommend the Gatsby and will definitely return. PS great view of the harbour even from the inexpensive room.

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 which local attractions to visit. The food was prep was attractively prepared 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.

The room was incredible. Comfortable, great view, location was across the street from the ferry which helped immensely. Staff was most kind and polite, the dining experience fantastic.

Great atmosphere, fine dining, and great service

When my husband and I walked past the Gatsby house it looked like a very picturesque place to dine. We thought we might be a little underdressed as we had been out touring Victoria all day. The kind staff never made us feel out of place, and the meal we had was superb. Then I did the thing that puts panic in every woman's heart; I forgot my purse at the restaurant. It was too late to go back that night to find it, so I had to wait until the next day. In the morning I got a message from the front desk of the hotel that my purse was delivered to me. What service. We will definitely stay at the bed and breakfast the next time we visit Victoria. Thank you from a very forgetful person.

Beautiful Setting and Delightful Food

My family took me to the Gatsby Mansion for the Mother's Day brunch and though it seems they lost our reservation, they smoothly and quickly found us a table. The inside of the Mansion is breathtaking! The details of design from that early era are perfectly preserved in all it's striking glory! It was a feast for the eyes! The food which was served in one room along three or four of the walls (I can't remember) was plentiful in variety and amount and richly flavored. Anything you could want was there and in all it's varieties. Eggs Benedict for example was made with smoked salmon or ham or .... etc. The service was excellent and the views from our window table were soothing and elegant. It was a great value for the experience and I recommend it highly.

Exactly what we were looking for!

This hotel is right on the harbour and was exactly what we were looking for. It is literally 2-3 blocks within all major attractions within downtown Victoria. The rooms were clean and comfortable, albeit the pillows were a bit old and flat and could use replacing. We had breakfast at Huntington Grill and it was very yummy. The service at the grill was great. The value was very good in terms of affordability.

I had made a mistake in booking my room. I thought I had booked it in August and had booked it in June. Needless to say, I didn't find out my mistake until I had checked in. I knew I made a mistake but the people there went out of there way to rectify it, not only was i able to get a room for the night but we got upgraded to a loft which drove our kids crazy with excitement. Perfect location, nice rooms and amazing prices. Would go there again and recommend it to anybody.
