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

We stayed for 3 days in the woodcutters cottage, the ambiance and staff were great. The breakfast was delivered to our room and was very nice. The problem is that on the last night of our stay some of our personal stuff (prescription medication that needed to be kept cool) was stolen from the communal fridge. This was a major... More

Victoria Garden Inn is aptly named so, because the garden does really take you back to the late 1800s. Recline with today's catch (read: wine, thats why you're here, isn't it!) while taking in the lovely flowers, or cool off in the pool. Breakfast is served in your room, in the garden or inside, your choice. ITS BIG! And nicely... More

Stayed for two nights at this inn in October 2012. The service was excellent. The breakfast was very good each day. There was a lot of personal attention by the young lady that was in charge of breakfast, checking in and out and pretty much everything. The owner was very pleasant and we did get a chance for a couple... More

My sister-in-law and I stayed at The Victorian Garden Inn for 5 nights and had a fabulous time. The gardens are just gorgeous and the setting is surreal. I didn't even miss TV because we stayed so busy. The daily breakfast was so yummy and nutritious, we couldn't wait for 9am to get there. We were only 2 blocks from... More

I was really looking forward to staying in this bed and breakfast, however, I was very dissapointed. I am generally forgiving of little things that are not "perfect", however, there was not much that I liked about this place. We went on an "event" weekend, with the benefit concert at BR Cohn winery , so we were charged $350 a... More
