“unexpected jewel for great price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 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 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.

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.

Me and my girlfriend stayed at the Gatsby Mansion two weeks ago. At first, we thought the resturant and the main floor looked very rustic and beautiful. After we checked in, we were not impressed. The room was so small, the garbage in the bathroom was full and the smell was disgusting. If there was a ghost living there, I'm sure it left because they couldnt bare the smell. We stayed for dinner and we were not pleased considering it was suppose to be a 'fine-dining' restaurant. The food tasted okay but the presentation wasn't great. Me and my girlfriend agreed that staying at the days inn across the street and going to Mcdonalds for dinner would of been a better choice. At least we would of saved money and had the same experience. To sum up, we will not be back any time soon!

Thank-you for your comments. I was disappointed to hear that our cleaning staff had let us down and want to express my apologies for their lack of foresight. Heritage houses aren't for everyone, as they are well over 100 years old, however we hope that you appreciated the location. Regards, Rita A. Roy, Pres and CEO.

This was my boyfriend's and I first time staying in a b&b and impressed is an under statement! Stan welcomed us immediatly and Caroline took care of us the rest of the time. We would definitely stay at the Gatsby Mansion again!
