If your first visit to a B&B is at the Queen Victoria, the bar will be set extraordinarily high for any others you plan to visit. We stayed at The Queen Victoria last weekend and found it to be truly exceptional! Right from our initial view of the exterior our expectations were exceeded. We were greeted by Maria who was friendly, helpful and a delight. She provided great information on restaurants and points of interest and we were not disappointed with her recommendations.
Our room was spotlessly clean and very well maintained and appointed. There was great attention to detail. I especially like the inclusion of a pot of lip moisturizer along with lotions, bath salts etc. in the bath products. Because the bath/shower soap was such a high quality and good size bar, they also provided a little bag in which to take it home at the end of the stay, The bed was very comfortable. Turn down service and chocolates were provided each night and there was a lovely guest pantry in which coffee, tea, juice, soda and water were available at no additional charge. Every afternoon at 4:00 there is a lovely tea with special sweets, spreads and of course very fine tea. Breakfast is very filling and very good, home made casserole, granola (so good), cakes, muffins, yogurt, fruit etc-- a fine morning repast.
Doug and Ann Marie, the proprietors, are terrific! They both are very friendly and charming! They have also done a fine job in employing a staff that understands quality service.
The Queen Victoria is very well located. We could walk easily to most places in the historic area and the pedestrian mall. The only time we needed our car was to visit the light house and go to the winery. The B&B is also walking distance to the beach.
If you are looking for a special and/or romantic getaway, this is the place! We enjoyed our stay so much, we have booked another one. I highly recommend the Queen Victoria. It's really very special.
We liked the Knightbridge room as it was quiet and off of the upstairs deck/patio.
