This is a lovely old church that has been converted into a B&B. It only has five rooms, but they are all unique and very well done. Our room, the "Fleur de Lis" was a great place for the night. Lots of antiques, a brass bed, a/c, and a door to the large back patio (shared with 2 other rooms)…..... More

This is a quaint and quirky spot, good for one night. The breakfast was excellent! Each room has it's own unique character, and some are very nice. Can be a bit noisy, it is in an old church, but lot's of conversation pieces around!

You can't help but like the charm of this building and the hosts were wonderful. The rooms were disappointing however with cobwebs and dust galore. It really needs a good cleaning. We were also disappointed that there was no wine offered as advertised. Nona explained that the State now prevents them from serving wine so they were going to change... More

My cousin and I had a wonderful 3 night stay at the Victorian Rose Bed and Breakfast recently while in Ventura for my daughter's bridal shower. We booked the Emperor's room and it was every bit as charming and descriptive as the website stated, including the 15' spiral staircase. Unfortunately for me, I was struck with the scary experience of... More

Travelers of every denomination can find something to love about their stay at the Victorian Rose. The unique (aka Gothic) ambiance of the interior combines stained glass, domed ceilings, a table set for a King, vintage couches, chairs and games, with even a Torah corner. After opening the door to our room we were pleasantly surprised with a beautiful gas... More

This bed and breakfast is in an old church, so all the rooms have beautiful stained glass, and arched doorways. Definitely something a little different! The innkeepers, Nona & Richard, are very friendly, and every afternoon there is wine and homemade goodies, the breakfasts are also homemade, and very filling, different every day. On the main street of Ventura, so... More

We stayed at the B&B for my birthday - I was greeted with a wonderful miniature birthday cake when we checked in although we could not enjoy the other snacks as we were going out to dinner with friends. This is a converted church and the stained glass windows in the main sitting area are gorgeous. We stayed in the... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the evening get together with other guests. It was a wonderful way to meet other travellers. Nona provided some delicious appies and varied ever night. Would definitely stay again and... More

My husband and I recently stayed 2 nights at this charming bed and breakfast while visiting Ventura for my 40 year high school reunion. It was a unique and wonderful experience! The location to the pier and downtown Ventura was perfect; and our room -- Fleur de leis -- was adorable and had everything we needed. Nona and Richard were... More

This is a difficult review for me to write. I have even considered not writing it, but I depend on others to give me honest evaluations and I can do no less. First, the whole place could be cleaner. Our room had hair on the bathroom floor and the toilet was not clean. The deck, which could be charming, was... More
