We were delighted to have found the Gatsby Mansion, a boutique Hotel associated with the Huntingdon! On the waterfront, beautiful stroll to restaurants, and a grand full breakfast! We'd absolutely stay here again!

This Hotel is nearly 100 yrs and is a wonderful place: think horror film mixed with Victorian charm. Now managed by next door Hotel, but okay for something different. Rooms good but bathrooms need updating - everything could use a lick of paint. No lift / escalator in this Hotel, just 100yr old stairs - so if you have mobility... More

The location is phenomenal -- literally steps from the Port Angeles and San Juan ferry terminal. The building and room is also beautiful. But the bathroom is seriously flawed--no real shower (just a tub with a hose and no curtain, so water sprays everywhere) and a flimsy glass shelf above the sink that caused a glass to drop and shatter...

This beautifully maintained mansion in part of a group of hotels right on the Harbour - beautiful gardens, friendly staff , breakfast was excellent (on the sunny porch!) - picture perfect. The price is right too.

Hotel is in prime location and beautiful from the outside. Upon check-in, the staff was not overwhelmingly friendly. We were pointed in the direction of the room. My mother was unable to get her luggage to the 3rd floor of the mansion. We were not offered any help and had to find the maintenance man to help us. We stayed... More

Our sincere apologies for the inconveniences that you and your mother encountered during your stay. When guests book at the Gatsby, the front desk agents are trained to advise the guest that there is no elevator and they then ask the guest if they would like assistance. Your comments have now established changes whereby the guest will automatically be escorted... More

You cannot beat the location of the Gatsby - only 2 blocks from the Legislature building and just across the street from the Inner Harbour. We walked to dinner every night. The breakfast is yummy and we ate on the porch overlooking the harbor. We had a large room with a small porch with a view however the black flies... More

Got a room on the second floor facing the water with a king bed for just over $100 per night. Just stayed one night but would definitely stay next time we are in Victoria if the price is the same. Place seems very old which it is but adds charm to the experience. Good location just a short walk to... More

I've always wanted to stay here, so I decided to treat myself & a friend to a few days mid-week. We got the Baker room on the 3rd floor. It was bigger than I expected.

If you enjoyed your stay in the Gatsby -- come back to our new look. The Gatsby will undergo refurbishment commencing in January of 2015. We will keep all the amenities that a Victorian Mansion should have but will make some changes in the bedding, window coverings and carpeting. We look forward to welcoming you on your return visit!

My husband and I got married here 12 years ago and have returned to The Gatsby Mansion many times since. We have tried out most of the rooms and the harbour view ones are our favourite, although each room has its own wonderful character. Our check-in agent (Catherine) on this visit was exceptional. The place is old-style and we love... More
