Stayed on a warm weekend in February. Cape May was empty which made for a very enjoyable trip. The B&B was exquisite. The room was clean and comfortable. The service was great. They had no trouble accomodating my gluten free needs.

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 March 2017

Another perfect visit to the Queen Victoria. Even though things in Cape May are very quiet in February, the warmth and character of the Queen Victoria is just as vibrant as the summer season. This time we selected the King Edward suite and was our first time staying in the House of Royals. Check in was a breeze and we...

Thanks so much Cindy. I'm so pleased that you enjoyed your latest visit to The Queen Victoria so much. The House of Royals is a very charming, elegant building, and the King Edward room is certainly one of my favorites. Some people never consider Cape May for a winter getaway, but it seems that you've discovered the joys and benefits...

We stayed for two nights and were delighted with everything about this tasteful and charming B & B. Some Victorian inns can be a bit too dark, flowery and frilly for our taste. The Queen Victoria is authentic with many antique pieces without being overdone. We can recommend the Knightsbridge Room located in the Prince Albert building. It is on...

We have been visiting Cape May for over 10 years. This was our 1st stay at this B&B. The owners have thought of everything to make you comfortable and feel at home. The place is beautiful. The breakfast was delicious, and the staff was exceptional! Stayed at the House of Royals, had a view of the ocean from our room...

Thank you very much for taking the time to post this review. I'm so happy that you found The Queen Victoria for your latest visit to Cape May. I'm also pleased that you felt so comfortable and "at home". I think that is one of the major differences between a hotel/motel and a B&B. It is very gratifying to know...

Warm welcome, gourmet breakfast, satisfying tea. Nothing is overlooked, from pantries stocked with water, sofa, and juice, to cookies upon guests' return from dinner. I particularly appreciate the Victorian decor. Each room has its own charm. Buildings and grounds are meticulously taken care of by staff. If you need a quick getaway, the Queen Victoria should be your destination.

great overnight romantic stay in wintertime Cape May. The room was wonderful, comfortable, and charming. Never had a better breakfast at any B&B. Staff was helpful and caring. Not many dinner restaurant choices at this time of year was only negative for a delightful trip.

Thanks so much for your review Anne. I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay at The Queen Victoria. Mid Week in January the restaurant choices are certainly more limited than you would find in our peak season. That is why we take so much time to prepare our "dining grid", which shows what restaurants are open what days/nights of the...

We had a nice stay at the Queen Victoria for my birthday weekend. The pocket porch in The Greenwich Room was lovely. The room was very clean and we loved the turn down service. The bed was comfortable. Housekeeping was generous with soaps, etc. We kept to ourselves with friends we were traveling with but had a great time.

Thanks for your review. It sounds like you enjoyed your visit to The Queen Victoria in every way. Though we're reasonably pleased with a 4 out of 5 rating, I'm wondering what we could have done to make your visit perfect. If we have the pleasure of seeing you again in the future, I hope you'll share it with us.

We just stayed for three nights on our mini-moon in the Empress suite. The room was cozy and romantic! We loved the fireplace and jacuzzi.

Thanks so much for your wonderful review. I'm glad that your "Mini Moon" was such a success for you. I'm sorry that you were disturbed by the door near the entrance to your room.

Another exceptional weekend at The Queen Victoria! This time, we stayed in the Osborne (in The Queen's Cottage building). The bathroom had recently been remodeled and it was amazing!

I guess I couldn't hope for a better experience for our guest than "Exceptional". The fact that it was "Another" one, pleases me all the more.
