Convenient location, both dog friendly and clean, toasty warm gas fireplace, friendly service, deep mini tub so appreciated. Slept on the hide-a-bed which was just fine, a nice surprise. I'm not a big fan of antique décor in general- makes things a bit museum-ish/grandma's attic to me, but it likely appeals to others. I plan on returning soon.

The Bishop Victorian Hotel, located in the heart of old Port Townsend is a delight. Maintained with an eye to the 19th century aesthetic, but updated with all the modern conveniences of bathroom and kitchen, it was a pleasant surprise to stay here. The staff are uncommonly friendly with good recommendations for restaurants and sight seeing. We spent a peaceful... More

This hotel has great customer service. The Victorian decor is beautiful. The breakfast being delivered in a basket outside your door is a lovely touch.The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is that the mattress on the bed really needed to be replaced. I tossed and turned and ended up switching at 2:00 a.m. the first... More

Terrific experience from check in to the picnic basket breakfast. The Bishop Victorian provided a step backward in time to a gentler time. Beautiful Room, gas fireplace, welcoming to our dog, suite with period furniture and beds. Comfortable, quiet and convenient.

It had been several years since we'd been back to Port Townsend, probably more than 10. We had stayed in the BV before and thought it was very nice and well located for the waterfront. We were very happy with all aspects of the hotel and the staff was most helpful. We took two of the suggested dining spots to... More

I enjoyed my stay in the hotel. The hospitality was great; breakfast at the door daily, complimentary coffee. The lawn was well kept and beautiful. Very serene environment. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to have a quiet moment.

Spent three nights here in March 2015. Is a neat old building, in really good shape for its age. Beds and bathrooms are nice. They deliver a continental breakfast to your door each morning. Don't know why especially, but the street outside was really noisy at night. Is a block off the main drag, but seemed to be a lot... More

Bishop's Hotel is a friendly well run hotel. We stayed for three nights with our Golden Retriever on Easter weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel has a pleasant back garden. We would definitely come back. Anna and Peter, Vancouver

Great place to escape the stress of life. Laura Lee was extremely helpful in setting up our reservation with only a couple hours notice. After our arrival, proceeded to tell us about our lodging and where to find places to eat. She made sure we were comfortable. Our room exited into a very pretty sitting area in the back. The...
