My husband and I recd a Queen Victoria gift certificate from our sons who had often heard us speak of our fondness for this most special B & B in beautiful Cape May. We went for a mid-week getaway, and were so happy we went there, as the amenities are outstanding! Every room and building we have had the pleasure... More

My husband and I stayed in the Queen's Cottage, and it was everything we expected it would be. The owners, Doug and Anna Marie, were extremely friendly and made EVERYBODY feel welcome to their B&B. The breakfasts & tea time were wonderful & delicious, and we thoroughly enjoyed having our meals on the porch of Prince Albert Hall. We loved... More

Thanks so much Jennifer. I'm so glad that you enjoyed your stay at The Queen Victoria so much. The Osborne room that you stayed in is one of our most popular rooms, probably because of the fireplace, the 2-person whirlpool tub, and the dedicated parking. It also has a unique decor that seems to appeal to just about everyone. I'm... More

We're a young couple in early 40s. I honestly thought that the place looked a little worn and needed sprucing up. We stayed at Prince Albert and it was smaller than it looked in picture and looked bit worn (different than the shiny pic). When we first arrived, the line was long, as there was only 1 person helping couples,... More

I'm sorry that your experience at The Queen Victoria was not a great one. I take it as a personal failure when our guests leave without having a wonderful time in Cape May and The Queen Victoria. I'm surprised that you felt that the Prince Albert building looked a little worn. We've focused a LOT of our energy on that... More

We just stayed for 2 nights and found the Inn to be amazingly clean and well-operated. The breakfast is great,and the coffee superb.

This was our first visit to Cape May. We have traveled many places in this wonderful world of ours but never to the New Jersey coast. We were given a "Select Registry" gift certificate for Distinguished Inns of North America and decided it was about time to see if all we had heard about Cape May was true. We frequently... More

What a wonderful place to stay. Doug and Anna Marie treat everyone like family. They can't do enough for you! The rooms are spotless and well appointed. Breakfast is always delicious ( the homemade strawberry jam~to die for!) It is conveniently located a block from the beach and 2 blocks from Washington Street Mall. They will make your dinner reservations... More

We have been staying at the Queen Victoria B&B for many years. We love Cape May and the QV and have enjoyed all of the QV rooms where we have stayed. Of course, we have our favorite which is the "Queen Victoria" room in the Queen Victoria building. It's a huge room with king bed, two person shower, beautiful furnishings... More

We just stayed at the Queen Victoria for the second year in a row, increasing our stay from 3 nights to 4 nights. This is truly a splendid B&B in the land of B&Bs called Cape May, New Jersey.

This is our 4th visit to Cape May N.J. over the years. Without a doubt, the Queen Victoria in Cape May has been the best of our visits, and superior to other B & B's we have stayed in over years, We stayed in the Prince Albert Hall building, one of a group of four that make up the Queen... More
