Great stay

4.6 on January 21, 2015

Very fun and relaxing stay. Chris and Lisa were both very warm and welcoming, not to mention Ping and Elizabeth Taylor. Overall a great experience.


Mount Victoria B&B is amazing

4.8 on January 05, 2015

Lisa and Chris are wonderful caretakers and hosts of their beautiful Victorian home in Eureka Springs. We have stayed there several times and they are always friendly and the food that Chris prepares for breakfast is amazing. We've been to Eureka Springs 17 times over the years and Mount Victoria is top of the list in quality.


Mount Victoria B&B 2 nites WE 12/12/14

4.4 on December 17, 2014

Really nice place and comparable in price (as around the US). Day one breakfast: awesome, day two ok. Check your room carefully if it has a shower; Chris the owner said it was difficult in some rooms to add a shower (in a renovation). Room was old but furnishings were nice. Overall, we would recommend as its close to everything and the owners were super nice. I did feel that they were hanging around every time we left or came; I am sure part of it was that they just wanted to answer any questions we had.. wished they just had some kind of bell if you needed help (in the lobby).

Innkeeper Response
We thank these guests for taking the time to leave a review complimenting our food and hospitality as well as saying they would recommend MOUNT VICTORIA! To be fair, we'd like to share that these guests admitted they did not read the web site or confirmation letter which both clearly state the suite they chose only offered a decadent oversized King Jacuzzi tub. We'd also like to share that we cleaned another room early so they could shower and then cleaned that room again for guests who were arriving / checking into the room later that day. We offered, they did not ask; the wife declined and used the oversized King Jacuzzi tub. The inn was built in 1902 which makes it not only "old" but historic. The inn is our Home and you will find us enjoying our Home whether it might be on the verandas, gardening, in the common area .... Or any other area. This is not a hotel with a front desk. Guests may see as much or as little of us as they wish as there is a secondary outdoor entrance. We do not "hang around" to intrude on guests' privacy but we are available to answer questions and help with anything guests may need. We are not "vacant" innkeepers. Upon arrival we explain to guests if they need anything to simply call us - there is a personalized "Welcome!" Sheet on guests' beds with the phone number. We do not offer a BELL. We wish these guests the best in future travels and encourage them to take the time and read what web sites describing what they are reserving, and confirmation letters, as they are both helpful tools!


Just Lovely

4.0 on November 19, 2014

My daughter and I had a very lovely one night stay. It exceeded my expectations and we hope to visit again for a longer stay. Our host were gracious and also left us to ourselves for privacy. The breakfast was absolutely the best I have had in many travels and places !!


Charming B & B!

5 on November 14, 2014

I recently had the pleasure of spending two nights at Mount Victoria. The house and decor is charming and cozy and felt like home. Upon arrival, we were greeted at the door by Chris and Lisa had prepared a delicious lemon bundt cake which was available to guests on the second floor along with any beverage you could want! The room was quiet and cozy and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was served on the veranda each morning and certainly didn't disappoint. The food was delicious and the presentation was amazing. The location is fantastic as you can walk or take the trolley which stops across from the inn. Chris was very helpful in suggesting places to eat and sites to visit. I would highly recommend the Mount Victoria to anyone!


As always, a perfect, relaxing stay at our favorite bed and breakfast inn in Eureka Springs!

5 on November 13, 2014

My husband and I have enjoyed several weekends at Mount Victoria Bed & Breakfast and are looking forward to yet another visit in December! I knew, from past experiences, my sister and I would have a wonderful time staying at this inn to enjoy nature's beauty during the peak season of the Fall foliage in the Ozarks! Chris and Lisa did not disappoint us! As soon as we pulled into our personal parking space, Chris was at the door to greet us personally and he showed us to our suite, all the while explaining the different "perks" offered at the inn. Lisa bakes the most delicious delicacies each and every day and guests are free to indulge as they relax away the afternoon either in their private suites or on the second story verandas. Lisa can be found most afternoons on the front porch and always has fun stories to share! Both Chris and Lisa are very friendly and outgoing, yet are very respectful to allow their guests the freedom to quietly come and go as they please. I've never stayed at Mount Victoria and not received great advice as to where we should spend our time shopping, relaxing in local spas, and experiencing fine foods at the local restaurants! Guests preferring to "dine in" for dinner have the opportunity to make plans when they book their reservations for one of the fabulous dinners Lisa and Chris prepare. My husband, along with three other couples, have had the pleasure of doing this and we were beyond satisfied! Every morning at 9 am, Chris delivers a scrumptious breakfast to your suite where you can dine inside or on your private veranda if you are on the second floor of the inn. Never once have we been disappointed with the food! It is always such a treat to see what both Lisa and Chris prepare for breakfast and it's always presented in such a beautiful fashion! As long as we continue to visit Eureka Springs, Mount Victoria will be our place to stay! It is a beautiful inn with wonderful inn keepers!


Not what I expected, nice guy but don't think it is worth the cost

3.0 on November 12, 2014

They have large tubs in the 2 3rd floor rooms, but there is not sufficient hot water to fill them more than 5 inches... There was someone else's hair in the tub, yuck!!! and there is no shower in the room for an alternate way to get clean. The breakfast was supposed to be the best part of the experience, a hard fried egg in in a roll is not to die for. It was really disappointing.

Innkeeper Response
We are certainly sorry this couple did not enjoy their stay in our Home, Mount Victoria. To be fair, we'd like to address their review. In nine years, we have not had a complaint about not enough hot water / only 5 inches of hot water. If this had been brought to our attention while they were here, we would have immediately addressed the situation. We carefully clean the rooms ourselves and are very sorry a hair was missed - if this had been brought to our attention while they were here we would have immediately re-cleaned their tub for them. Each suite's amenities are detailed on the web site, in confirmation letters, and on the phone when making a reservation. In addition, there are a plethora of room pictures as well as each room's Jacuzzi, tub and / or shower. If this guest had desired a room with a shower, and one was available, we would have placed them in one. The detailed suite information is there for all perspective guests to read. Our breakfast has placed us in "Southern Living" and we are sorry they did not enjoy their breakfast as the other 6 guests did. The breakfast this reviewer had was this: 2 organic eggs layered with cheddar cheese and scallions soft baked in hollowed out homemade bread bowls topped with more cheese & sauteed asparagus spears. This was served with fresh rosemary sweet maple roasted potatoes, fresh fruit & Snickerdoodle dessert souffles topped with real cream & caramel. When breakfast is delivered to the rooms each morning we also deliver a detailed Menu Card which provides a descriptive of what we prepared for them. To say they were served a "fried egg in a roll" is just as wrong as it is uneccessarily beyond rude. If this couple had brought their dislike of this popular breakfast to our attention, we would have happily made something else just for them. We try to please everyone's palettes but, unfortunately, it is not possible even though we ask about and accommodate dietary restrictions and dislikes. Last, but not least, our rates are comparable with other better B&B's in Eureka Springs during high season. We wish this couple the best in their future travels!


The PERFECT Weekend Getaway!! The BEST Food!!

5 on November 06, 2014

When I began my search for the perfect place to spend a special romantic weekend I was determined to find everything I wanted and I did! Mt.Victoria is a beautiful inn with genuinely friendly and easy going owners who immediately make you feel relaxed and welcome. Their dog, Elizabeth Taylor, is friendly too! The location is perfect and we walked everywhere. We stayed in the Clayton on the 3rd floor and it was beautifully decorated like a magazine picture, clean, and really cozy. Our bed was incredible and very, very comfortable with the softest sheets I've ever felt. We really enjoyed our big Jacuzzi tub and felt so spoiled! The food was the best breakfast we've ever had! The first morning we had a delicious sausage gravy breakfast pizza with veggies, cheeses, and egg (I know, sounds odd but it was VERY good!) and fresh fruit and Lisa's dessert which was what she called a deconstructed cherry chocolate pie! No words for how good THAT was! The second morning we had their eggs Benedict - very different - with pork tenderloin and a fresh lemon sauce and NO runny egg - instead it was an omelette! Dessert that morning was a pumpkin pie trifle with real cream and cranberry cake! Chris delivers your breakfast to your room every morning with a menu card that describes what you're being served and we loved that! The amenities are outstanding - movies, a station for our phones, robes, Waterford crystal (we felt so fancy!) sodas, water and ice always available plus teas and hot cocoa and apple cider and a lot more! And then there's Lisa's cookies! One day she made fresh cranberry white chocolate chip (it's my husband's new favorite cookie!) and the next day she made peanut butter with chocolate chips! Thank you Lisa and Chris for making everything so special for us! We will be back!!


Mount Victoria in Autumn

4.4 on October 22, 2014

Mount Victoria was the perfect place to have a long, romantic weekend getaway for me and my boyfriend. We were greeted by our friendly landlords as soon as we stepped out of the car (and a very friendly dog named Elizabeth Taylor) and given a quick tour and some general info. The room was beautiful and the bed was heavenly, we both slept like babies! The location to the main loop of Eureka Springs was great. The breakfasts were excellent (we were a little unimpressed with the coffee, although they do grind theirs each morning they said), Lisa's daily cookies are fabulous, and the two cats added to the charm of the place. It's a beautiful home, the room was comfortable, cozy, and charming. We really had a great time here. We didn't really see much of the landlords while there, but they were always quick to answer the phone if we had any questions. Cost was a bit pricey, but that's what you're going to pay for a nice B&B so I thought it was fine. All in all, highly recommend Mount Victoria B&B.


Wonderful breakfast and beautiful decor, but needs minor changes

3.4 on October 15, 2014

We enjoyed our stay, but felt that it would have been nice if we had options on what time breakfast was served. It came every morning at 9am and was incredible! Also, we loved having breakfast in our room, but thought it would have been nicer to have a knock at the door with breakfast left on the trey outside instead of having it brought into the room. Chris and Lisa (the owners) live there. It felt a little strange to hear hi and bye every time we came in and left the house. The tv was small and was inside the antique armore along with our hanging cloths. The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet. Nice place overall. Next time we'll probably stay somewhere a little more private, though.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for taking the time to post this review. Our breakfast is one of guests' favorite parts about staying at the inn. Guests love room service and we will not be changing that. We are not a hotel and, as at other B&B's, breakfast is served at a specific time. There is no misrepresentation of this on the web site. We are not a Hotel and do not leave food on a tray outside the door. You were guests in our Home, Mount Victoria, and we can't imagine being rude by NOT acknowledging guests when we see them. All tv sizes are on the web site for each suite and if you are accustomed to a big screen tv at home, then they might be considered small. We would not change anything {"suggested"} by this reviewer and wish this couple the best in their future hotel travels!
