I wanted to celebrate my 40th bday doing something special for me, and my family had given me a lovely gift of sleep, which was exactly what I wanted. I selected this B&B because I wanted to stay somewhere different, and I also wanted to be close by to my mom’s since she was babysitting my boys for us for the weekend. And I could have not selected a better B&B. The weekend we selected was of course the snow storm of 2016, but we made it to the B&B before the snow, and the weekend for us was perfect. Meldalina who is the inn keeper was an absolute gem. We arrived after 7pm, but she greeted us with such warmth and happiness that you felt it as you came into contact with her. She gave us a tour of the home, and checked us in. And she also gave us great recommendations for local restaurants since we arrived late at the B&B. The room we selected, the Georgiana Suite was perfect for us. The beds were comfortable and cozy. The amenities were also wonderful. Steps from our room we had a snack/tea/coffee bar, and that for me was a dream! In between naps and watching TV, I had access to snacks 24/7. This was quite awesome! Breakfast was delicious and filling. Since the snow started to come down the next morning, we had no intentions of getting out there unless we had to grab dinner. Meldalina had kindly offered to make dinner for us rather than having to go out in the snow, and we totally took her up on that offer. Dinner was delicious. She prepared a delightful tortellini chicken soup, with salad and garlic bread. She was great to chat with and we had some of the best nights at this inn thus far. I would wholeheartedly recommend this inn. I was pampered and fed like a queen and it was the best 40th bday celebration to date. There are not enough words to express how lovely Meldalina made us feel, and how gracious, professional, cheerful and thoughtful she is. This place is an absolute gem!!!

Enjoyed a two-night visit during holiday season. The inn was professionally decorated for Christmas and was featured on the local walking tour. Owners and staff accommodated a room change, helped with large bags, and were generally terrific. Breakfast was good. Room prices are somewhat high for Central Connecticut, but much of the clientele is associated with Choate Rosemary Hall (right next door) and the Inn is without a doubt the top choice anywhere within several miles from the school. We are already scheduled to return. Spacious, romantic, and well situated to the lovely small downtown. One of our best B&B experiences in recent memory.

Stayed December 5, 2015. Beautifully decorated for Christmas. Fabulous Victorian decorated with period pieces. Lots of nice little touches -- wine and cheese hour, chocolates, comfy robes in the rooms as well as any toiletry you might have forgotten... The list goes on and on. Had wonderful dinner at J. Christian's just a five minute walk away. The popovers were heavenly and my husband couldn't stop raving about the short rib tacos. If you are in the area for a concert at the Oakdale Theater staying at the Victorian Inn will make it a very special trip. Be warned, can be pricey depending on time of year, week.

This is a lovely B&B. The parlors and dining room are handsomely restored, my room was charming, and the in-room amenities and coffee service were great. The innkeeper, Meldalina, is wonderful. She is a marvelous cook, and warm and welcoming. I felt like we were friends after staying just 2 nights. You also must try her home made soaps and bath products ! I look forward to my next visit to the Wallingford Victorian.

Convenient location, comfortable rooms, and outstanding service make The Wallingford Inn the ideal overnight accommodation when visiting Choate Rosemary Hall. Breakfast is also always outstanding.

Stayed Oct 9-10, 2015... innkeeper Meldelina is fabulous, friendly and an outstanding cook. Breakfast was delicious and elegant. Wine hour from 5 to 6 was great, comfortable and we got to meet a very nice couple. Rooms were clean and well appointed. Only issue was glitchy DirectTV, but tv is not really what you stay at an Inn for. Wallingford is a wonderful town and very walkable... would consider living there even. Definitely have to visit Lyman Orchards during your stay. The Library restaurant was very good. Steer clear of Michael's Trattoria though. Meldelina can offer great recommendations and make reservations for you. We had a wonderful time and would recommend the Wallingford Victorian Inn to anyone.
