“Victorian comfort and a great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

We had the opportunity to spend two nights there this past fall. Can't say enough good about the place. The suites are spacious and the beds comfortable - can't get much better than that!. The staff are extremely friendly and were able to offer good recommendations as far as restaurants, etc. I don't believe there is an elevator, so keep that in mind, but confirm this first.

Room Tip: Great location. Comfortable accomodations.

Having stayed at 3 other hotels in Port Townsend, this has been by far the best. The suite was tastefully decorated in Victorian style but still has all the modern amenities. Bed was comfortable and the gas fireplace kept the room cozy. Was surprised that the shower water pressure was good even though we were on the 3rd floor. Perhaps the only area for improvement is the free breakfast was a bit underwhelming (you don't get much, and quality is on the low side). Not anything that would detract from the overall stay however.

I cannot say enough good things about our stay at the Bishop Victorian from check in to check out.

A.J. Checked us in, told us about the attractions, circled key spots on the map and took our breakfast order for the following morning. She was warm and very helpful and a lovely way to start the weekend.

We then went up to our room which was very clean and very comfortable with a cozy little fireplace and lovely view of the garden.

After spending the rest of the day eating and drinking our way through town (I highly recommend the little wine bar about a block away and Sirens pub about a block the other way) we returned to the room which was warm and quiet all night. The following morning we found our breakfast basket filled with scrumptious pastries waiting outside our door.

All in all it was an exceptional little getaway! We will definitely return!

My husband and I just returned from a wonderful stay at the Bishop for our Anniversary. We couldn't have asked for much more. We really loved all of the victorian charm everywhere that you looked. The private garden was beautiful even being January. The room was very bright, cozy and comfortable. We loved our fireplace, and we used it everyday. The breakfast has many options which we enjoyed daily. The location is within walking distance to restaurants, shopping and the beautiful Puget Sound scenery. We love Port Townsend, and will most definitely stay at the Bishop Hotel again.

This hotel was amazing starting with the warm, informative, friendly receptionists. The suite was amazing (Room 24) with a living area (one brick wall) that included a table and chairs by a window overlooking the gazeboed garden, sofa, flat screen TV, a gas fireplace with great heat, and kitchenette. The bedroom with queen-sized bed even had a distant water view. It's two flights up but worth the small climb. A breakfast basket (with ample choices) is delivered outside your door at one of two times of your choice. The suite was immaculate. You can choose housekeeping or not. It's conveniently located one block from downtown. I shall definitely return.

I enjoyed every minute of my stay at the Bishop. My suite was so adorable in Victorian decor, exposed brick and a cute gas fireplace stove that kept the place toasty warm. It was very clean, which is very high on my priority list for a place to stay. I think it is managed very well. Bring ear plugs if a light sleeper since old buildings do not have insulation. Highly recommend.

This was an excellent experience from start to finish. Located within walking distance of all the interesting restaurants, shops and waterfront scenery in town, location is super convenient. There is off street parking and the staff are exceptional people. The wi-fi went down and one of the front office staff conscientiously tracked down the problem without delay. She also gave us some excellent dining tips! Squeaky clean, not overdone, Eco conscious...we did not take advantage of the complimentary breakfasts though had we stayed longer than three days, would have. The rates were off season and a great value. My only regret is not taking advantage of the deep tub....next time.

Room Tip: The bedroom in our suite ?224 was cramped but very quiet. The living space was ample otherwise. Woul...
