This was a beautiful old-fashioned B & B Inn. We had a very nice room and a lovely breakfast in a friendly environment. Like a trip back in time. One of the most efficient bookings I have experienced too! Oh, and I thought it was such a pleasure that the quoted room price is the exact amount you are charged.... More

My recent stay at the Debary Inn was for four nights and couldn't have been better. Jimmy the Innkeeper was fantastic and very helpful with restaurant and public transit recommendations. This was the perfect place to return to after a full day of meetings. Highly recommend room #17 at the top floor. Will be back.

This was a great B&B. I travel a lot for work, so I've seen my fair share of disappointing breakfasts, but the spread at DeBary is outstanding. They get breakfast cakes from one of the local bakeries, plus they have cereal, eggs, yogurt (greek and regular!), and great bread/spreads. Plus, the staff was super friendly and helpful. I'd absolutely recommend... More

I was quite pleased with our stay here. The BnB is a beautiful stately home in a quiet neighborhood in town. It is within walking distance to a plethora of boutique shopping and a wide variety of dining establishments. The Victorian Inn is beautifully decorated. The room (we had a full sized bedroom) was quite comfortable and welcoming. It is... More

This is a beautiful old home that is nicely decorated. My room was small but that was fine. The problems I had were the sheets were AWFUL. They were old and scratchy. I've had better at very cheap chains. The walls are also very thin so I could hear the TVs from both my neighbors. Guests must have been taking... More

I'm sorry Dorothy you had a less than pleasant experience with our 600 thread sheets. We have never had a complaint before but we will look into it. As to our coffee mugs, we inspect every mug every day, the mugs will stain after you have had your first cup due to the strength of our coffee. Our guests have... More

We were very disappointed and upset to find that our bathroom was not connected to our room. (It was across the hall and was accessed with a key.) When we said as much to the host, his response was that when you stay in a boutique B&B that is what you get. We have stayed in many similar B&Bs and... More

Room 16 is the only room at the inn with a detached bathroom, we clearly describe that fact in all our listings. We also price the room accordingly, it is the lowest priced room at the inn. Our policy is to upgrade a guest whenever it is feasible, but on the day of your reservation we were completely booked making... More
