Both the hosts and the property made this a fantastic experience. We felt welcome even before we arrived, as the hosts contacted us to gather info shortly after we made the reservation. The rooms have a lot of character, every room is different, we stayed at the penthouse, which is is spacious and has a great view. The common areas...

It was one of my best friends weddings and this could not be a more perfect place. Alex and Dianna were so helpful and kind. I had lost an earring and they took the time to look and exchange information. Even going the extra mile to follow up with me the next day to see if I had found it...

We had our wedding ceremony here in early July, the grounds and house were beautiful. Downsides were that the rainshower head in our shower did not work and even after we asked about it it wasn't fixed during our 3 night stay. Also we found it difficult to get a hold of the Inn Keeper at times, we had champagne...

Our stay was wonderful. The Marco Polo inn was beautiful inside and out. Hosts Deana and Alex made our stay a very memorial one and we plan on going back to enjoy their wonderful hospitality.

This beautiful mansion was apparently a gift to a new bride in 1923. From the moment we drove into the driveway, we knew we had found a special place. We were met by Alex (Alejandro), and his lovely wife Diana. Alex conducted a thorough orientation of the property which allowed us to feel at home within minutes. The rooms are...

We stayed 3 nights at the Marco Polo. Hosts Deana & Alex were wonderful and could not have been more attentive and their breakfasts were to die for. We were in the Silk Road room and it was beautiful as were all their other rooms. We will definately return.

We stayed in the Alexandria room for four nights this June. Can't say enough about the old world feel, the service, a five course, homemade breakfast, the grounds and even the tame deer in the yards. Eliza, Alex and Deanna couldn't have been nicer. The chocolate every night on our bed was such a nice touch. Even soft music playing...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A leisurely game of bocce, a glass of amarone, a stroll past the reflecting pool of an Italian Renaissance garden, a massage in a romantic penthouse spa. Tuscany or Umbria perhaps? In fact, the exotic Villa Marco Polo, one of Victoria's most sumptuous inns, is located in Victoria's elegant Rockland quarter. This classically designed Victoria Inn, built in 1923 as a gift to a young bride, remains a favourite romantic getaway and wedding venue. ... more   less
