I originally found this hotel on Hotwire and they were offering a pretty good room rate for a 3 night stay and the location, as well as photos provided by the hotel looked great. I should have read the other reviews more closely in hindsight. Upon check-in (at the adjoining newer hotel) I had to haul my luggage around the...

We found the Gatsby Mansion on Expedia, which gave us a Baker Room for $109. It was in the Judge's House, part of an old mansion facing the harbour; behind it, on the same property, was the modern Huntingdon, where we went to check in and park. We had high ceilings, a four-poster bed (no curtain) and a relatively smallish...

What a magnificent location! We couldn't believe the charm and character it had. Our view from our room was spectacular. We enjoyed breakfast and attentive staff. Quite a charming experience. I would have loved to stay longer.

My wife was visiting on business to help a senior relative at a care home, and this was a good price that we picked up on Travelzoo/Expedia. We've been in Victoria every month to take care of her, and we tend to check out a new hotel when there's a special deal around. The Gatsby offered a special for $99/night,...

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Gatsby Mansion inn for the Easter long weekend. We were very pleased with our stay. I believe it has changed management fairly recently so we did not encounter any of the problems the previous reviewers have listed. We stayed in the Baker Room, a spacious, yet quaint room at the top of the...

My partner and I stayed in a room at the Gatsby Mansion last September. The room was really cosy with rich rosewood antique furniture and sumptuous bedlinens. It was a small room, but elegantly appointed. The bathroom was small, but it had character. We ate at the restaurant downstairs that night. Expensive (white linen tablecloths) but the food was very...
