I am very easily "grossed out" by the smallest things when I stay away from home. If the room is not absolutely immaculate, I will not sleep for the entire trip. P-Town is notorious for rooms that are somewhat lacking in cleanliness. I've stayed, unfortunately, in some places that were filthy pits - dirty carpets, stained comforters, hairs on pillow cases, etc. The Queen Vic was a delightful surprise - it was absolutely spotless. And they certainly hold themselves to a very high standard, with white sheets, duvet covers, shower curtains, and bathrooms. It was a pleasure to stay in such a well-cared-for environment, and I slept like a log. My partner and I enjoyed our end-of-September stay very much.

The owners of this guest house truly care about the property and the experience of the guests. Aside from the cleanliness, the breakfast was delicious, served in a lovely dining room, with fresh fruit (hand cut, not the usual store-bought assortment). Homemade waffles added a very nice touch (so much for the diet). The rapport between the owners and guests was warm and friendly - and this at the very end of the season when most everyone who lives in or operates a business in P-Town has lost any semblance of patience or civility.

I was also impressed by the little things that no one would notice - very heavily padded carpeting in the hallways and on the stairs made it a very quiet stay. Although my room was right at the top of the stairs, I really didn't hear any hallway noise.

So many places in P-town look as if they were hobbled together by a bunch of blind carpenters with a Home Depot gift card. This place is very nicely appointed and quite chic in its décor. Everything was comfortable and well-thought-out. The rooms might be a bit small, but that's typical of P-town an I'd certainly rather have small and spotless than large and messy. Plus, on the website, the rooms are well-described, including a warning that one particular room is not for people traveling with a lot of luggage. My experience has been that most guest houses on town offer no such warning beforehand, much to the surprise and dismay of the guest.

As far as the location, it could not be better. It is just steps way from Joe, the fantastic coffee place with the patio, the Boatslip, shops, restaurants, and pretty much everything you'd want to be near in the West End. Yet, it's still quiet. It's such a pleasure to be able to run back a couple of blocks and grab a sweatshirt at the end of the day, instead of a half-hour walk.

I would absolutely stay here again, although I'm guessing vacancies will be hard to come by once this place catches on. I cannot wait to come back next summer - we finally found a great place to stay in P-Town.

Excellent location, our room, bathroom and the common areas were spotlessly clean, very comfortable, owners and staff are friendly, helpful, efficient & relaxed. Bathroom was a decent size, great shower and water pressure. Would recommend the Queen Vic to anybody.

Thank you so much for the great review. Josh and I are as most people can tell very happy to be a part of what we have tried to create here at The Queen Vic Guest House.

The house itself is a magnificent home. Once our guest walk through the front doors we want them to feel a sense of relief. It is our goal to make sure eveyone has a wonderful time here while they are in our home and surrounded by the magic which is Provincetown.

Safe travels and we look forward to the next time we see once another.

First time staying at this lovely historic inn. Our hosts Josh meet us at the door and help us with our bags. We quickly checked in and he explained or the amenities of the Inn.
We had a 3 room suite, lovely decorated with some antiques and modern furniture. Simple tomes of white, beige and dark woods with some metal accents. Clean and inviting, the bathroom was very large with a small refrigerator ion the corner.
Nice balcony outside our room for an evening drink was very welcoming, with access to the hot tub at the very nice garden lounge area.
Breakfast was very nice; fruits cereals, pastries, coffee, juices and they made to order waffles and eggs.
This was a weekend b-day celebration for me; our host gave us a bottle of white wine for the weekend.
Loved spending the better part of the evening at the front garden, sipping wine and people watching.
Enjoy this beautiful Provincetown landmark, you won’t be disappointed.

Room Tip: Stay at the Queen Suite

Usually when I travel to Ptown I stay with friends but it did not work out this time and I had to find accommodations.
My experience was great at the Queen Vic. The hosts were casual and relaxed which made me feel welcomed. The room #18 was on the top floor with water views and was appointed beautifully. Very comfortable with A/C and private bath. The location was perfect too, in the west end of town which is close to many shops and restaurants.
It was a weekend filled with good friends, good food and many drinks! I highly recommend the Queen Vic to anyone and it will be my preference to stay in the future.

We stayed for five nights on the cheap, Sunday through Thursday night. Right in the heart of all Ptown has to offer. Enjoyed "pre Tea" drinks at the new bar, and everything on Commercial is right at your doorstep.
Our hosts Josh and Stan were full of helpful hints and every accommodation requested. We'll be back for sure. Btw, Ptown is wonderful in Autumn too.

Thank you so much for the kind words and for reminding everyone how great Provincetown is in the fall.

It truely is one of my favorite and by far one of the most beautiful times of the year here

Also, we are able to give bigger disounts during the week and even on the weekends. Plus please always remember that as a return guest you will always be part of the friends and family discount.

We are so excited and happy you enjoyed the addition of the full bar. We thought it would be a great addition so everyone can relax, grab a cocktail and enjoy watching the "parade" of people coming and going everyday without having to leave the comforts of the front court yard.

Thank you again and we hope you enjoy the rest of 2015 and we look forward to seeing you in 2016.
