We recently stayed at the QV to celebrate a big birthday. This was our first visit to a B&B and we couldn't have been happier. The entire staff treated us like we had been there many times before. What sets TQV apart is the attention to detail. The QV buildings are all spotless. Everything is decorated as it should be giving a welcoming feeling of home no matter which room you chose. They even have custom mattresses and pillows. Sleeping on a cloud is the best way to describe it. I usually have a lot of trouble falling asleep in someone else's bed. Not this time. I was out like a light. Anna Marie, to put it simply, is up-to-date on everything Cape May. By that I mean she keeps information on all popular venues and even their seasonal hours. She also has a suggested itinerary to make the most of your time. Top shelf all the way!

Thanks Justin. I'm so happy that The Queen Victoria was the perfect place to celebrate your "BIG" birthday. I'm glad that you enjoyed everything so much. Anna Marie does work very hard to be sure that everybody has the Ultimate Cape May experience during their visit, especially in the cooler months. It was a pleasure meeting you both. I hope you won't wait until your next "BIG" one to return!

What a wonderful first time experience at a Cape May B&B. They can't all be THIS good. They could not do enough for us. From Maria checking us in, walking us to our room, explaining everything as we went, to Doug, the Inn Keeper, with friendly conversation at tea, to Anna Marie , the Inn-ess Keeper whose knowledge of the Inn and the history and what to do around Cape May can not be matched. They recommended restaurants and made reservations for several guests we met. And our wine tasting at Cape May Winery was a very pleasant surprise. BTW, get the Cape May Red! Our room was serviced in the morning and at night with a turn down service. Breakfast was excellent, with good conversation and smiles. A great way to spend the morning. We've decided to make this an annual Christmas present to ourselves and we'll be coming back to the Queen Victoria!

Room Tip: The King Edward Suite was the best room at the Inn, according to one of the housekeepers. We agree!

What a great review Bob. Thanks so much. I'm so pleased that you enjoyed your winter visit with us so much. I hope Anna Marie didn't wear you out with all her ideas of fun things to do :) I'm thrilled to see that you're planning on making your visit to The Queen Victoria a tradition. See you next year (if not sooner)!

We've been vacationing in Cape May for several decades, but always in the summer and always in a rental house or hotel (and usually with kids/grandparents!). My wife and I recently stayed 3 nights in January at the Queen Victoria to celebrate our 15th anniversary. It's located very close to the Washington Street Mall and the beach. I thought it would be nice and relaxing to visit during the off season, as it gets very busy in the summer. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful and friendly staff and absolutely beautiful accommodations at the Queen Victoria! We stayed in the Crown Jewel and it's appropriately named. The web site doesn't do it justice. There are so many things included that we didn't have time to experience them all in our brief stay (afternoon tea, complementary bicycles to ride, etc) -- we will definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: The Crown Jewel is actually a separate building with private parking - very quiet!

Thanks so much for the wonderful review Rick. I'm glad that you and Judy "made the plunge" and tried the B&B thing this time. I'm so pleased that you found the Crown Jewel to be more than you expected/hoped for. It is a very special room, obviously.

Next time you'll have to be sure to take advantage of all the amenities!

I hope we'll have the pleasure of your company again soon.

The room was first class, the service was first class and the staff was first class. Did I mention everything was first class. We had a very memorable time and will be back again soon. Thanks to our innkeepers Anna Marie & Doug & thier wonderfull staff.

Room Tip: Try the Gilbert & Sullivan room for a great experiance. It has everything you could want in a B & B. The Homemade Strawberry jelly was out of this world, sorry I only took two bottles home.

My boyfriend and I spent a week over the summer in the beautiful town of Cape May. We chose the Queen Victoria from both reviews on TripAdvisors, as well as from word of mouth, and we were definitely not disappointed.

Room:
We stayed at the Prince Leopold room which is located in the House of Royals which is across the street from the main house. The room was located on the 3rd floor and was quite spacious. For being in the heart of Cape May, the inn was very quiet and private. Our room had a very comfortable bed, nice natural light, and beautiful Victorian decor. Upon inspection of the bathroom, we were pleasantly surprised by a flower floating in the toilet. We were always taken care of by the staff, as our room was cleaned two times a day and replenishments of fine soaps were always given.

Breakfast:
Every morning we woke up to a delicious breakfast. There was always a spread of fresh/ homemade granola, fruit, cereal, breakfast breads, muffins, coffee, and a variety of teas. There was also a hot breakfast casserole every morning (breakfast was so good we bought the Queen Victoria cookbook). We always made it a point to eat outside on the porch which was a wonderful way to start every day.

Parking: Please note that to no fault of their own (they are located in the center of town), parking at the Queen is an adventure. Prepare to spend a couple of minutes looking for a place to park. We usually found free parking on the side streets, and then took a nice 2-3 block stroll back to the Queen (which was actually a nice relaxing walk where we got to see some of the other beautiful inns in the area).

Things to Do in Cape May:
The beach was about 2 blocks away, and requires you to purchase beach passes for the duration of your stay. The Queen provides chairs and umbrellas for guests (but we brought our own). The beach itself was nice (a little rocky in some points compared to the beaches at Wildwood Crest). There was plenty of shopping to do in Cape May and great restaurants. Everything was within walking distance to the Queen which was very convenient (there was even a grocery story within walking distance). We also went on a carriage ride one evening which was a perfect way to end an evening. We learned a lot about the history of the town and almost felt like we were back in time.

Notable Restaurants:
Hotdog Tommy's (located on Jackson Street) an amazing hot dog place that you have to try. We picked up a couple of hotdogs and brought it back to the Queen to eat on the porch (as there is no place to sit down and eat at the stand). It was a great lunch!

Lucky Bones: A great place to eat pizza. Make sure you go early, as this place tends to get crowded after 5:30.

The Lobster House (outside): We ate here a couple times at the fisherman's wharf. We ate fresh seafood next to fishing boats docked on the pier. Great atmosphere. This place also gets crowded, so make sure you get here early. You do have the option of eating inside, but service sometimes is slow and the food is double the price. Eat on the pier, its a great atmosphere and excellent food.

This was a wonderful stay. If you want a great experience at a seaside town, look no further than the Queen at Cape May.

Room Tip: Prince Leopold room is spacious and quite, located on the 3rd floor in the House of Royals (across the street from the Queen main house).

I'm so glad that you're still remembering your summer visit to The Queen Victoria so fondly during a cold January weekend! You should seriously consider doing reviews professionally, as you really covered all the bases with yours.

I'm pleased that you enjoyed your visit so much. It sounds like you really explored Cape May and took advantage of all our beautiful seaside village has to offer. You guys will have to start planning a return trip, as there are still a lot of restaurants for you to experience. I hope we do get to see you again soon.
