Just spent two nights at The Virginia hotel as our normal favorite bed and breakfast was closed on the days we wanted to stay. Overall, we were very pleased with our stay. We really appreciated the off season rates-very affordable! The front desk was friendly and efficient, the rooms were extremely clean, comfortable beds, nice quality amenities in the bath....

Stayed during MLK weekend in room 208. The staff at the hotel could not have more professional and friendly. My problem was with the room, which I'm sure was specific to room 208. The stairway to the 3rd floor is next to one wall of the room, while an ice maker was on the other end. noise most of the...

This is the most charming hotel I have ever experienced. From the moment you walk in through the welcoming red doors, you will feel the comfortable yet elegant ambiance of this lovely hotel. The warm weather months are great to enjoy the front porch, and a warm fire greets you in the colder months. The location is awesome, walking distance...

The restaurant has been renovated and the food and service is superb. The hotel is also within walking distance of the beach.

Stayed for probably the tenth time at the Virginia, and have to say the excellence continues. The Victorian decor is elegant, and, being 3 days before Christmas, was extraordinary. The main thing that separates this hotel from so many others is the professionalism of the staff, from the desk, to the maitre'd to housekeeping and valet parking. They are obviously...

The rooms are in the old style and the attached restaurant is exquisite. Within walking distance to the beach, we did stay in December and I would not consider staying here in the summer due to the fact that I like to be closer to the beach and usually rent near the beach. This place was perfect for seeing the...

For two years we have enjoyed our stay at the Virginia Hotel Christmas eve night into Christmas day. It was a very special experience! Service is wonderful - even though it is the holiday and we feel guilty about "making" people work, we felt so welcomed! The queen bed room we have is comfy, spacious, and the shower is magnificent...

We booked the Virginia Hotel as we were meeting good friends from Lewes who ferried over for dinner and an overnight stay. From the cozy lobby with fireplace, the warm reception from Julia at check-in, the comfortable rooms, a nice bar off the lobby and breakfast served in the rooms, we found it to be a perfect rendition of what...
