We did not stay at this hotel but only had an afternoon tea in their restaurant. The snacks offered with the tea and the tea itself was delicious, but we found the price quite expensive. You can visit the Gatsby Mansion for an afternoon tea in a beautiful old house with a nice view by the seaside. However, keep in... More

Thank you for your kind comments regarding our afternoon tea in the Gatsby Mansion. We introduced afternoon tea in 2014 and researched other venues in the downtown core in terms of their menu selections and pricing. Our menu is quite extensive and our pricing is below other hotels in the area offering a similar service. The Gatsby Mansion will be... More

The staff is very friendly. The Gatsby Mansion is in dire need of renovation and update. No shower in the bathroom, no space around the sink, the carpet was dirty. We were very disappointed with the state of the bathroom. We had asked when we made our reservation if there was a shower (we had read online that not all... More

Well, this place sure has an excellent outside appeal which can be deceiving! the moment you enter this beautiful mansion, the thrill starts to dissipate. For one thing, especially for senior like me, the absence of an elevator is a real pain! We had to climb three flights of stairs with our luggage ! The food is ok but overpriced... More

Price was good, staff was pleasant and helpful. Rooms and decor need some updating but overall we found the place to be lovely. We were a bit concerned with the restaurant downstairs as it seemed to be mostly empty at all times but found the food to be outstanding. Close to downtown Victoria, Royal BC museum and Parliament building. Lots... More

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...

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.

Our sincere apologies for the inconveniences that you and your mother encountered during your stay.

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.
