Our second visit to The Queen Victoria was outstanding again! Anna Marie and Doug, the owners, are attentive to every detail and anticipate guests' needs with lovely amenities. This year we stayed for the Wine Blending Weekend--a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon experimenting with wine and meeting other guests of the B&B. We enjoyed the experience and are... More

Did another "Girls Weekend" at the Queen Victoria this weekend and, once again, had a wonderful time! If you haven't yet stayed here while in Cape May, I'm begging you to do so....

We happened on this wonderful B&B while searching on the internet for a weekend getaway. We were not disappointed with our choice. This is a beautifully decorated and well-maintained choice. It is obvious that the owners, AnneMarie & Doug care very much for the property. The buildings are well kept and immaculate. We chose a room, "Gilbert & Sullivan" --... More

We returned to the Queen Victoria for a short mid winter get away and as before we were not disappointed. Anne Marie and Doug should be teaching others how to manage a bed and breakfast. Ever friendly and helpful, they are neither overbearing nor neglectful and run a five star establishment. From check in to check out, everything was impeccable.... More

Love that review title! Judging from the number of reviews you've posted on TA, it is high praise, indeed, to receive such a complimentary and wonderful review from you. Thank you so much. We appreciate your repeat business even more than your great review. I hope we won't have to wait another 3 years to see you again! Doug More

I'm pleased that your visit to The Queen Victoria was a "Wonderful Getaway" for you. Thanks so much for becoming a returning guest yourself! Your observation about the number of returning guests is well founded, as over 50% off all reservations at The Queen Victoria are made by returning guests. We're fortunate to be able to count a great many... More

8 STARS. The absolute best deal we saw was in the first week of February -- and we grabbed it! And had a FANTASTIC TRIP! Cape May is "closed" in January, and just starting to re-awaken in the 1st week of Feb. in prep for Valentines Day, etc. VIRTUALLY NO OTHER TOURISTS! You can get front-row parking on Sunset Beach!...

Thanks for the great review. It was such a pleasure getting to know you both during your visit. The "Shoulder" season (our euphemism for "off" season) is a great time to see a side of Cape May that many folks never experience (by the way, WE are open in January). First of all, the rates are much better, especially with... More

We have been going to the QV for over 10 yrs. We have tried only about a third of their rooms from the smallest to the larger suites. All of the rooms have met our needs yet all are different.
