This is a great location for a B&B, right in the heart of Sonoma but quiet enough to give you some privacy. Enter off the street and find impeccable gardens and quaint buildings. Our room was a little small, but still nice, and there's a hot tub in the back and a great breakfast. People said the staff could be... More

Very nice setting and location. The gardens, according to my master gardening wife, were beautiful. We had a wonderful breakfast outside by the pool and could smell all of the flowers while eating a delicious breakfast. The location is excellent. Two or three blocks from the main plaza so walking enabled us to imbibe in more wine than normal!

We stayed here for a couple of days. It is located a short walk away from the town square where all of the restaurants etc are. Wifi was acceptable and it had decent air con. Really nice gardens (we took out breakfasts outside for example) which might be a plus if you have some time to kill. My main complaint... More

This inn is beautiful and a great value! The property and gardens are very well maintained with lovely amenities including a pool and hot tub. Our room was comfortable with many nice touches - fluffy towels and pillows and chocolates, too. Breakfast preparation sent delicious aromas throughout the inn and we enjoyed coffee on the porch. I highly recommend this... More

This place is exactly what is says, set up like a Victorian house with loads of "period" pieces even down to the decanter of sherry for the guests to help themselves to!

We loved our stay here! We arrived much earlier then expected and were greeted very well. The staff (so sorry I can't remember her name!) helped tremendously by giving us great information and a wonderful itinerary that helped us plan out our day. While the décor is not 100% our taste with all the white wicker, etc., it is certainly... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night, and my daughters and significant others were in two other rooms. Pre-arrival communication was good (email and phone), and the place is really nice. Beautifully decorated and very welcoming. We loved our room in the main house, and the garden and tower rooms are also wonderful. Nice gardens, grounds, and decor... More

We greatly enjoyed the Victorian Garden Inn. The room was comfortable. The full breakfast was superb. Fresh fruit and cookies are available throughout the day. Sherry is available in the afternoon and evening. The inn is located a few blocks from the plaza, which made wine tasting and getting home very convenient. We liked it so much, we plan to... More

Great B&B. They serve an excellent breakfast. They gave the option to eat inside or in the lovely garden. The staff is excellent. We needed to leave the B&B about 6AM as we were running the Napa to Sonoma Half Marathon and they offered to serve us breakfast when we returned from the run. We returned about 10AM which was...

We had a very lovely room on the 2nd floor. It was low season, so we had the house to ourselves. The breakfast was very good, with homemade preserves, and it was served by the pool, surrounded by fruit trees and a beautiful garden. At night, when we would be coming back from our outings around Sonoma square, we had... More
