Gatsby Mansion Inn Victoria

We live in Victoria, but decided to stay at the Gatsby Mansion for our anniversary.

What a gem! We loved it there! The vintage accommodations, so carefully preserved and well-maintained. It was like stepping back in time. The complimentary “Breakfast Tea” in the morning was amazing.

For an authentic, lovely and memorable stay in Victoria, that is close to everything and still affordable, we highly recommend the Gatsby Mansion.

We stayed in the motel suites at the back of the mansion house itself – it was well equipped and functional and had a small balcony with a view of the bay where we could see the sea planes landing and taking off. This part of the hotel felt neglected and the main mansion hotel was undergoing repairs and painting so they were probably in the middle of seasons restoring the upkeep while it was quiet. Victoria was great and we enjoyed long walks in the local neighborhood and enjoying the sights and beautiful weather.

We took our family to high tea for the first time. It was casual which was good for us. Good food. Holiday tea was very good. Joanne was a great waitress. She shared a lot of fun Canadian facts. We will go back.

We love to stay in non-standard accomodations and Gatsby Mansion definitely fills the bill. The house was built in 1897, I believe, and has had several incarnations. Now it is a bed and breakfast and is part of the Huntingdon Manor hotel. The location is super and the parking was free. We left our car for the weekend and walked all over Victoria. It was very enjoyable and comfortable.

The entrance was not manned when we arrived so we checked in at the adjoining hotel. The lobby was pleasant and there was a nice fire in the fireplace with a place to sit. I also noticed a small lounge on the third floor where we stayed.

We booked the turret room. Spectacular view of the harbor and very quiet. The room was large and furnished with period pieces, including an armoire since there was no closet. The wifi was free and strong. The bathroom was well appointed and very clean. The tub was large and there was a tiled surround with plenty of space to put soaps and shampoos. For such an old house the water pressure was amazing. The bed was very comfortable and the pillows and bedding were fresh and clean. There was a plug-in heater which we did not need as the room was warm even on a cold day in February. There is also a ceiling fan and a freestanding fan. An iron and ironing board are provided as well as slippers and robes. The complimentary toiletries are high quality.

We had little contact with the staff but when we did see them they were very pleasant and polite.

Breakfast was provided and we ate there both mornings. There are three choices, scrambled eggs, pancakes, or fruit and yogurt parfait. The pancakes were the best choice. Bacon, sausage, and ham were offered. We tried the bacon and sausage and preferred the bacon. There was not much flavor to the sausages. The weakest item was the scrambled eggs. They appeared to be a foodservice product and didn’t have much flavor. Each table had their own pot of coffee which was a nice touch. Had the breakfast not come with the room we probably would have eaten elsewhere.

All in all, Gatsby Mansion is a very comfortable place to stay and is rich in history. Although there is no elevator they offered to carry our luggage up and down for us if we had needed help. For location and comfort and the uniqueness of the building I definitely recommend it.

For a building over a 100 years old, the Gatsby Mansion is a charmer and in very good condition. It was a fun stay!

Bed comfy. Large room with great view. Loved the historical connection and period building. Quiet and peaceful. Walking distance to places to see while in Victoria.

Chairs needed to be big wing backs, not little modern ones. Bathroom decor was a disappointment. Would like to see an old fashioned sink and tub/ shower. Not the modern style.

I enjoyed the complementary breakfast. Very nice staff. Loved the quaint antique atmosphere.

The room looked right over the Bay, was so central to everything! The Christmas lights were amazing and the room was huge and cozy!

We got there early in the morning and were able to park in their parking lot for free. We walked around downtown, had tea and pastries at Murchie’s, walked to Chinatown, went into many stores and by the time we came back, our room was available. There’s a beautiful tea room at opens at 11 a.m. Can’t beat the location of this mansion. Looking forward to tomorrow’s hot breakfast that’s included. The room has a mini refrigerator, Keurig Coffee maker, a very comfortable bed. My husband is downstairs sitting by the fireplace. We will definitely come back again. BTW: You need to go up stairs. There’s no elevator so if you can’t climb stairs, this is not a place for you.

Historic building. Beautifully decorated interior. A nice selection of sandwiches and sweets. My only critique is that I found the service to be a bit slow considering it was not very busy when I was there. I have been to afternoon tea at several venues in Victoria and know that it is an experience not to be rushed. Even so, the service that day was slow. It may have been just a one off type of thing. I would still go back.

We took the ferry from Port Angeles to Victoria for the day and hoped to have afternoon tea at the Fairmont Empress. It was booked, so the young woman at the Visitor’s Centre suggested Gatsby Manor as an alternative. It was perfect, great tea & food and the young woman who served us was lovely. The location was perfect also, practically across the street from the ferry for our return trip. Don’t overlook this spot for afternoon tea.

My wife and I have stayed here before, and The Gatsby Manor was as before. Read, mark, learn and inwardly digest the reviews that are here, and if you think this might be the place for you, grab a reservation now: a place this eccentric might not last in the world of today’s mainstream hotels.

We went to Victoria for tea and decided to get 2 rooms at the mansion. It was worth it. The rooms were elegantly dressed and the location was perfect. Everyone from the servers to the front deck to the gardener was very nice and friendly. This is an experience that we will never forget

Haunting atmosphere. We needed a key to get into the house which made it feel like we were staying in a house and not a hotel but still had the hotel convenience. Breakfast in the morning was included and was ok and very convenient for coffee juice and toast. Rooms were clean and comfortable.

We stayed in the Pendray Suite and felt it was the most perfect room in Victoria. Yes the Inn is old, there is no air-conditioning or elevator; but it as a true gem of history. We had a balcony overlooking the harbor and a first hand feel of being involved in everything that was going on; but we were sitting on our little piece of paradise enjoying a glass of wine! The building is beautiful and most passersby stopped and took a picture with us in it or waved. The location is perfect. We walked to the castle, Chinatown, everywhere. We left our car in Port Angeles and took the ferry. A buffet breakfast at the Huntingdon Manor is included and the staff was excellent. it couldn’t have been a better visit.

Perfecto location near center and near Fisherman’s wharf. Also in front of Coho ferry.
Very nice an authentic building, you feel like being in a novel.
Roons should be better decorated, the best one with four posted bed.
Breakfast buffet included in the next building but poor and not varied.
Reception in the next building, Huntingdon manor, really kind and very useful tips in restaurants,etc.

The Gatsby is located near the Inner Harbor, so right in the center of everything. The service is attentive and excellent. Included breakfast is a good buffet and the grounds are lovely. We stayed in Bedroom 3 in the Gatsby Mansion building. It was decorated with antiques and reproductions, including a high, four-poster bed.

But it is a 100 year old building, and you need to be ready for the quirks. No air conditioning, but there is a fan in the room. No elevators or ramps, so not suitable for anyone with a disability needing that assistance. There are electric plugs, but not as many as we are used to, with all of our chargers, electric razor, electric hair dryer, etc.

But if you consider the drawbacks to be charming eccentricities (we do) and enjoy the historical setting and great location, you will have a great time staying here.

Fantastic stay! Will be back for sure. The home has great character and was probably one of the cleanest places I have ever stayed. Staff were beyond helpful. The included breakfast was above and beyond.
