“Great weekend getaway!”
Reviewed March 13, 2012

My husband and I loved our weekend winter package at The Queen Victoria. The staff was excellent, Maria's tour in the beginning made us feel right at home, Doug was a perfect host at breakfast, and the maid service was prompt and efficient. They also did a great job of providing information about the going ons in town! We quickly filled our weekend with a beach side bike ride, a wine tasting, and delicious meals at local restaurants. Our room had a sitting area, which was the perfect spot for a cup of tea and cozying up for a movie. Overall we throughly enjoyed our visit, would absolutely return, and hopefully bring some friends next time.

Room Tip: We enjoyed Prince Leopold's room on the third floor in the House of Royals!

One of the best places I've stayed at so far ! I love Cape May, and all of Queen Victoria holds the spirit of this beautiful town. This place is like visiting friends - you want to be back as soon as you leave. A special thanks to all, staff and inkeepers, for all the efforts in making everything perfect.

We are returning for our 5th visit here soon, and find it different and perfect each time! There are so many different types of rooms so each visit is totally special. We love perusing their website to choose our next room. Their breakfasts and their tea time are phenomenal, and the quality of folks that stay there, work there, and own it lend to a friendly stay. If you want more privacy and have breakfast by yourself, you can always stay in a different house and have breakfast at bistro tables for two.
Check out their website to pick your next room!

This was our second time staying at the Queen Victoria. It's a very easy, friendly, and family-style atmosphere, and the service and provisions there are very thoughtful. You see great care and genuine hospitality in the variety of teas left in the pantry, the fancy coffeemakers that are available round the clock, the very social afternoon tea events, the amazing breakfasts, the beach towels and showers that are made available to guests in the summer, and the day trip suggestions we received during our recent Winter Getaway stay, prepared by innkeeper Anna Marie. While the atmosphere is very Victorian and low-tech, Wi-Fi and cable are made available, and the public spaces are very inviting places to read and socialize before turning in for the night. The off-season specials make Cape May an attractive getaway destination year round. We highly recommend being guests of Anna Marie and Doug!

Room Tip: Talk to the Innkeepers!

A lovely celebration of our anniversary! The room was beautiful, the breakfast excellent and the afternoon tea hit the spot! I would recommend this spot to everyone! The inn and the rooms are beautifully decorated and the staff is kind and caring. We will be back every chance we get! The location couldn't be any better. A block from the beach and local shops. Put this inn on your list of "best places to stay!"

From the moment we checked in, we were treated like royalty. Upon arrival, Maria gave us a tour of the building where we were staying and personally escorted us to our room on the third floor. Our room was spacious, clean, comfortable and quiet. We choose a room with a jacuzzi tub, which stopped working after 10 minutes of use. We reported the problem; it was repaired and in running condition the same day. The rooms are elegantly decorated, but not overly junked with Victorian embellishments. Staff is extremely attentive, but not intrusive. Breakfast was delicious, with an abundant variety of choices. The afternoon tea, sweets and savories were also a big hit with our group. Located close to beach, Washington street mall, restaurants and activities means you don't need your car. We will return for another five star experience!

We took advantage of an introductory offer and enjoyed an absolutely perfect experience. The Queen Victoria has to be the most beautifully restored and maintained B&B we've ever done. The accommodations and hospitality are equal to Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, the Breakfasts and afternoon tea were wonderful, we genuinely appreciated the convenience of courtesy bicycles with which to ride all over the island, and the guests we met shared our enthusiasm and added to the pleasure of our visit. We absolutely plan to make this a new tradition and repeat the experience many more times as a perfect getaway anytime of the year.
