In its day, this was probably a lovely place, but not any more. The gardens are overgrown with 5 foot weeds, the furniture and draperies are worn and the rugs need a good cleaning. There are a few signs of renewal and repair but not enough to consider a return visit.

      So, this was my first experience at this inn. At first I couldn’t find it—there is a sign on the main road, but not out front.
      There must be new owners here. The reviews from 2019 are very different than now. I stayed in the Cranberry room in the Carriage House—modern, no antiques—but everything was updated and clean.
      There is clear evidence of renovations—the stairs are all being replaced.
      At one point, the gardens must have been beautiful—but sadly they are now overgrown and full of weeds. I had to resist the temptation to pull some of the weeds. About 6 hours with a few workers would make a huge difference.
      At breakfast, the coffee is good—scrambled eggs only or cereal. After so many options for breakfast at other B&Bs, this is strange.
      The owners are not really present. The only one I met was a young man who checked me in, and served breakfast—btw breakfast seems to begin at 8:30- not 8:00am as on the paper in the room.
      Hopefully, if I return, there will be more improvements!

      Room tip: Ask about breakfast times—it’s not consistent.

      Disgusting, the place looks abandoned when you drive up. When we turned down the bed there was dirt in the sheets, not just stained but actual dirt so bedding had obviously not been changed. When we contacted front desk, no apology or excuse, just told to leave key in room.

      We stayed at the Victoria Inn on July 11,2022. It was extremely disappointing. The grounds are overgrown with weeds and unkept. The room looked ok as long as you didn’t look closely- under the bed was filthy, a sock was left under the small table, so the room had not be cleaned properly! When you went out for the evening to reenter you went to the side door with a coded lock but the code was written on the door for all to see And it wasn’t locked anyway! Really secure! The next morning breakfast was from 8-9:30 we arrived at 8:30 -4 other people were waiting. I looked around and there was no one in the kitchen- it was in darkness. We called a # and woke someone up . They arrived in 20 minutes. Breakfast was simple eggs sausage toast and fruit, but unable or unwilling to make scrambled eggs without the yolk for my husband - too hard! A taxi driver in Cuba once said “5 stars on the outside - 1 star on the inside” I think this goes for the Victorian Inn ABSOLUTELY NOT A 4 or 5 ⭐️

      If you adjust your expectations, this is a cute place to stay. Old reviews will lead you to believe it is a 5 star place, it is not. It has plenty of historic and pretty features that give it a lot of character. We stayed in the Carriage house, it was nicely decorated. Complimentary breakfast in their dining room was simple, but if you're fine with Great Value coffee and beverages (like powdered peach juice), it's an interesting space to dine in. The staff are friendly and I gather new to the space. The whole place needs a deep clean (quite dusty, marks on floors, walls, furniture, curtains), and attention to details is lacking - e.g, one hanging garden basket at the front was totally dried out, weeds in garden beds, curtain rod had really old cracked plastic casing). Lots of room for improvement. With everything just re-opening from the pandemic and new staff, I'd give them a little grace over other recent reviewers.

      Arrival at the B&B was ok. Person who took us to the room was pleasant. Entering the room, the door mat was filthy. Wiping your feet made them dirtier. This mat should be replaced or cleaned regularly. The room appeared to be ok at first glance. In the morning when we showered, there was mold between the tiles. A mat was provided to step into the shower but, like the outdoor mat, it was filthy. Usually a clean bath mat is provided. NOT HERE. Breakfast was supposed to be served between 8 and 9:30. When we arrived for breakfast there appeared to be no one around. Several guests were waiting. We left. Since no one was around to check us out, I phoned them. It sounded like I woke someone up. Also, the ground are in terrible shape. If the place is restored to its previous spender and service, it would be nice. Unfortunately it needs a lot of work. The owners should consult with someone with excellent B&B experience to bring the place up to snuff.

      Room tip: I would not recommend this B&B until it is brought back to its former self
