My husband and I celebrated our 35th anniversary in Victoria and I was so happy with my choice to book at the Gatsby Mansion. It was the reviews that gave me that final nudge toward the Gatsby and I'm thankful to those travelers before me. The Gatsby Mansion was more than I expected in so many ways. The old mansion...

Reviewed February 21, 2017

We love to stay in non-standard accomodations and Gatsby Mansion definitely fills the bill. The house was built in 1897, I believe, and has had several incarnations. Now it is a bed and breakfast and is part of the Huntingdon Manor hotel. The location is super and the parking was free. We left our car for the weekend and walked...

I stayed one night at the Gatsby Mansion while on an overnight business trip and thoroughly enjoyed the historic vibe of the mansion as well as that fact that it is only a few blocks from the Empress Hotel and the Legislature Building. The beds were super comfy, parking was free and my business partner and I enjoyed a great...

My fiance and I have stayed here twice already, and plan to come back for our honeymoon... we love it that much! If you want something modern, sterile, without personality, you should go somewhere else. However, if you love old houses with charming details and little nooks and crannies, plus gorgeous wood paneling and antique accents, you couldn't find a...

We live in Victoria, but decided to stay at the Gatsby Mansion for our anniversary. What a gem! We loved it there! The vintage accommodations, so carefully preserved and well-maintained. It was like stepping back in time. The complimentary "Breakfast Tea" in the morning was amazing. For an authentic, lovely and memorable stay in Victoria, that is close to everything...

We stayed in the motel suites at the back of the mansion house itself - it was well equipped and functional and had a small balcony with a view of the bay where we could see the sea planes landing and taking off. This part of the hotel felt neglected and the main mansion hotel was undergoing repairs and painting...

Thank you for your comments regarding your stay in the Huntingdon Manor. The Huntingdon Manor is a hotel not a motel and has undergone extensive refurbishments over the past two years. The Gatsby Mansion is presently undergoing refurbishments of some of its guestrooms and will reopen in mid February.

We took our family to high tea for the first time. It was casual which was good for us. Good food. Holiday tea was very good. Joanne was a great waitress. She shared a lot of fun Canadian facts. We will go back.

Thank you for your comments regarding your recent afternoon tea at the Pendray Restaurant in the Gatsby Mansion. The Mansion was once a private family home and although elegant and historic- it is not stuffy or pretentious. People coming for tea can relax and feel at home in their jeans or more formal attire.

Historic building. Beautifully decorated interior. A nice selection of sandwiches and sweets. My only critique is that I found the service to be a bit slow considering it was not very busy when I was there. I have been to afternoon tea at several venues in Victoria and know that it is an experience not to be rushed. Even so,...
