I stayed with my cousins at the Victorian B & B. Harold was our host and was attentive to our needs. The whole house was amazing.. A real collectors find. The rooms were spotless, the facilities modern yet in keeping. Afternoon tea was a delight taken in the drawing room with the most delicious cake and proper tea. Morning tea... More

From arriving for afternoon tea and home-made cake to leaving after a great breakfast a stay at this B & B is packed with Victorian discoveries. The whole house, as far as currently developed for guests, is completely and utterly in period and a joy to behold, in fact it's difficult to stop oneself staring around at the pictures, royal...

We stayed at the Victorian Bed and Breakfast for the first (but not the last) time in December 2013. The decor is fascinating, the service outstanding, beds wonderfully comfortable and we had the best breakfast for a very long time. The house is situated off the road - with off road parking - and within easy walking distance of central... More

This B&B is definitely worth a visit. The owner/host (Harold) is an ex butler and knows how to look after his guests. It is like stepping back in time... amazing decoration and artefacts and Harold has so much information about the things in the house and victorian times, it is really interesting. Afternoon tea is served on arrival. The breakfast... More

We were made to feel most welcome & Harold was happy to explain the history & significance of many of his extensive collection of artefacts. A thoroughly enjoyable stay, happy to return anytime.

Just returned from a most enjoyable week-end at The Victorian Bed and Breakfast. Our Host, Mr Harold Brown, was such a delight to meet and a fountain of knowledge. Made us feel at home straight away. We both loved the feel of the house. Victorian throughout and so many delightful artefacts in every nook and cranny. It has obviously taken... More

I use Trip Advisor a lot to check out possible destinations, but have never written a review before. My husband and I are quite particular about what we like, but charm and hospitality are vital elements of an enjoyable stay. The Victorian B&B is absolutely wonderful. It's stuffed full of the most amazing and original Victorian antiques and Harold Brown,... More

This is no ordinary "themed" B & B. Harold Brown has a love of the Victorian era and has carefully selected artefacts and photographs from the period to recreate a tasteful, elegant house which has been decorated in keeping with high quality textiles, soft furnishings and wall paper. But best of all - Harold was a Butler to Royalty -... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Built in 1861, the house in leafy Tunbridge Wells has never been as Victorian as it is now. Deep colours, rich velvets, marble tables, authentic wallpapers, tasseled lamps, portraits of Queen Victoria, tea and Victoria sponge by the fire. Be prepared to take a serious step back in time. ... more   less
