After exploring the inner harbour, taking a carriage tour, and doing some shopping, we were thrilled with our afternoon tea. The place was nearly empty and we had the veranda to ourselves. The food was delectable and the tea selection was varied.

We love to stay in non-standard accomodations and Gatsby Mansion definitely fills the bill. The house was built in 1897, I believe, and has had several incarnations. Now it is a bed and breakfast and is part of the Huntingdon Manor hotel. The location is super and the parking was free. We left our car for the weekend and walked...

My husband and I celebrated our 35th anniversary in Victoria and I was so happy with my choice to book at the Gatsby Mansion. It was the reviews that gave me that final nudge toward the Gatsby and I'm thankful to those travelers before me. The Gatsby Mansion was more than I expected in so many ways. The old mansion...

Thank you for your comments regarding your recent stay in the Gatsby Mansion. The mansion is unique in terms of its location, ambience and attention to detail. There is work under way to further beautify the Inner Harbour with the David Foster walkway which will feature a new terminal for the Clipper and Coho. The walkway will also be enhanced...

I stayed one night at the Gatsby Mansion while on an overnight business trip and thoroughly enjoyed the historic vibe of the mansion as well as that fact that it is only a few blocks from the Empress Hotel and the Legislature Building.

My fiance and I have stayed here twice already, and plan to come back for our honeymoon... we love it that much! If you want something modern, sterile, without personality, you should go somewhere else. However, if you love old houses with charming details and little nooks and crannies, plus gorgeous wood paneling and antique accents, you couldn't find a...

We live in Victoria, but decided to stay at the Gatsby Mansion for our anniversary. What a gem! We loved it there! The vintage accommodations, so carefully preserved and well-maintained. It was like stepping back in time. The complimentary "Breakfast Tea" in the morning was amazing. For an authentic, lovely and memorable stay in Victoria, that is close to everything...

We stayed in the motel suites at the back of the mansion house itself - it was well equipped and functional and had a small balcony with a view of the bay where we could see the sea planes landing and taking off.

Thank you for your comments regarding your stay in the Huntingdon Manor. The Huntingdon Manor is a hotel not a motel and has undergone extensive refurbishments over the past two years. The Gatsby Mansion is presently undergoing refurbishments of some of its guestrooms and will reopen in mid February.
