“Better than average B&B choice”
Reviewed 14 September 2011

As is typical for many B&Bs, the Blue Gull features six rooms in a turn-of-the-century (20th) home that are a bit cramped for modern living. But if you are an avid B&Ber, this Inn offers well kept rooms, a nice breakfast and warm hosts. There is a sitting room on the main level, and the dining room is where hostess Renee offers up a delicious breakfast at 9am sharp. A steep staircase leads to the rooms we stayed in upstairs, The Angel and The Country. The Angel was a corner room with -- you guessed it -- angels on every table and shelf, It was a little too precious for our taste. The Angel had an attached bath with a whirlpool tub. The Country had just a shower. Both rooms were small , but were clean. The queen beds were comfortable. The Inn is located in a nice neighborhood within walking distance to the downtown area. But the after dinner climb back up the hill might prove difficult for some. Inn keepers John and Renee were warm,but not over-bearing hosts.

We stayed at the Blue Gull Inn for 1 night and had 2 rooms.
One the Rose is bigger, but the other, Teddy, upstairs had a bigger bathroom.
Both rooms were very clean, comfortable though I will never get used to these Queens,The house and porch really very nice.
The breakfast which is at 9 am sharp( was okay for us, because we had planned on going to Seattle on time), was really good and tasty and we enjoyed it very much.
Also the deer in the garden was fun(for us).
The "but" is that we in the Rose room had not been able to sleep for hours, because there was a loud and annoying noise coming from the room upstairs from 12 pm onwards.
When we told the innkeeper this, she said " oh yes when my husband came into the house this morning he said the whirlpool upstairs must have gone on."
We were a bit disappointed that she had not asked us herself if we had had any trouble being directly under that room and even when we said okay that must have been it, she never apologized. Perhaps she didn't realise how we felt.

Room Tip: The rooms upstairs are sure not to be under any whirlpool :-)

We had a lovely one night stay at the Blue Gull Inn. From being welcomed upon our arrival to our check out, everything was perfect. The room was spacious with a lovely bathroom. The wrap around porch was where guests gathered and chatted. And of course, over the wonderful breakfast, in the morning. I wish we had booked another night but we were leaving Port Townsend after one night. We plan on staying at the Blue Gull Inn again.

we will certainly return to stay at The Blue Gull Inn in Port Townswnd. Accomodations were excellent - service also excellent with goodies and coffee/tea available at anytime. Breakfast was delicious and John and Renees hospitality was outstanding. A very good experience - we stayed in Teddys Room because I make teddy bears and it did not dissapoint.

We read about the Blue Gull Inn from the Vancouver Sun Newspaper where we live
We have never stayed at a B&B before and were a bit apprehensive but the review prompted
us. We were so glad we did. The room was bright and large and spotless for a home
built in 1898. So impressed with the Inn Keepers (not sure if they own it or just run it)
but the baked goodies left out for a late snack were amazing. The yard is cozy and of course
Twin deer in the yard upon our arrival.
The morning breakfast was excellent and enjoyed talking and sharing stories with the other guests over the amazing morning meal.
The Blue Gull Inn was very affordable and very worth booking even for one night

Room was very comfortable. John couldn't have been more helpful in giving us maps, tips on sightseeing, restaurants, etc. But breakfast was the clincher - delicious egg dish, wonderful scones, and fresh fruit.

We booked this B&B based on other reviews and we weren't disappointed. Room was clean and cozy. Breakfast was wonderful! Would stay there again in the future. The view from our room was limited but we don't usually stay in the room very long.
