The Inn was very handy to the Square and the staff were very helpful, providing an umbrella for the rain and presenting an excellent breakfast.

We stayed for one night on a rainy February weekend. Donna and Janet were wonderfully friendly and accommodating hosts. After they saw how tall I was they upgraded us to a suite with a larger bed at no extra charge (being tall is good for a lot of things, but usually not so directly!). The room, the Woodcutter's Cottage, was cute, clean, and cozy, and the bed was quite comfortable. We felt like royalty in the super-thick white bathrobes. The food at breakfast was good, and more than we could eat. Even the coffee wasn't half bad, and I'm a bit of a coffee snob. The location is just two blocks from the main plaza - it was raining so we didn't walk down there, but you certainly could on a more usual day. Overall, a great experience!

A Victorian Garden Inn is a great place to stay when visting Sonoma. It's located four blocks from the main square and provides a beautiful and comfortable base for exploring the town. The staff is very accommodating. We will definitely stay here again.

Victorian Garden was our first B&B and it was very nice - especially the grounds! We stayed in the main house and shared a bath. The breakfasts were great - even our bag breakfast, packed at our request so we could catch our flight. The location was nice too - very close to the Sonoma plaza. We walked to great restaurants and shopping.

We have roomed at various B&B's over the last 20 years and this is a great place. My wife and I stayed here with our adult daughter for four nights and then continued on to San Francisco. Our rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet. We all took advantage of the on site massage and our tired travel-weary bodies were thoroughly relaxed and unknotted before we set out to explore the area. Breakfast was European style -- assorted pastries, toast, cheeses, hard or soft boiled eggs delicious yogurt, granola (cereal may have been available) hot coffee/tea and juice. It was plentiful and delicious. There are a selection of coffees, teas and hot chocolates available in the afternoon and evening along with a plate of cookies. The property has had the same owner for 29 years and sits on a manicured acre in a quiet neighborhood, two blocks from downtown. The interior is restored and decorated with period pieces. With all of the antiques and baubles it would be a challenging place to manage small children. The owner and her staff were very nice, polite and helpful. We walked to and from the many wonderful restaurants and shops several times- the picturesque town square is energetic with people all about. The porches are perfect for reading, drinking a glass of wine or a cup of coffee. It is also a short drive from Napa if you are so inclined. While we researched the area before our visit, there is no substitute for locals who know the area. The owner and her staff were very helpful, suggesting wine tours, places of interest, restaurants and providing some history and prospective of the area. We will definitely stay there if we are in the area again.

We were only able to stay in Sonoma one night but glad we chose this place to do. The grounds of the house/cottages are gorgeous. The location was very convenient, and service/attentiveness from the staff was superb. Cute little breakfast in the garden in the morning. We'd recommend this to anyone.

We thought the room was very quaint, and romantic. The staff made you feel like you were in your own home. We had the Wood Cutters Cottage which had its own access, so it was like your very own. We were minutes from our dining reservation, and the square to visit the next day. The breakfast in the morning was cozy out on your own patio where everthing was already on the table on tine from their very friendly staff. they brought you as much as you wanted as requested. and it was totally private with your spouse. Nice!! I will go back there. Very relaxing!!By the way, order one of there packages. Very affordable!!

Our stay was great. Room was comfortable and clean. Good service, welcoming and kind. Breakfast was good, but the same both days. We would return! Thanks.

The Breakfast is not what I would expect based on our other B&B experiences. It consisted of a hard boiled egg, cold cereal and little Danish from the Supermarket. When my wife and I were there for several nights, one evening it rained and the ceiling in our room was leaking all night. Donna did have a bucket placed in the "Garden Room" to catch the water. The location of the B&B to the center of Sonoma was convienent for walking purposes but that was the only positive thing I remember.

After hectic days in San Francisco, the change of pace and scenery we experienced in Victoria Garden Inn was wonderful. The room decor seems to take you back in time -- but still all modern facilities are available. All in all a friendly, comfortable and pleasant inn. Definitely recommendable!

We so enjoyed our stay here. Our room was beautiful. The gardens are outstanding. A hidden oasis. We loved having breakfast in the gardens ever morning. Very peaceful and relaxing!

My husband and I spent two wonderful nights in the Woodcutter's Cottage. We travel quite often and always stay at B&B's and I must admit that this is one of the best in my experience. Upon arrival we were greeted by their two adorable cats and the owner. We were taken on a tour of the whole property and then shown our room. It was amazing! The room had the most comfortable bed, a nice little fireplace, and a private patio. The staff was very helpful with finding a place for us to dine and wineries to visit. (You must go to Benzinger Family Winery. It's one of the most interesting wineries I have ever been to.) When we returned in the evening we found coffee and tea, cookies, and other goodies left out for us to snack on. The breakfast was served to us in the dining room at 9am as we had asked and it was very tasty. At the end of the day we put on the robes they provided for us and snuck out to the hot tub to relax after our long day. Overall our stay was made extra special by the wonderful owner and her staff. I can't wait to return again when the weather is warmer so that we can enjoy the pool and the gardens a bit more.

We expected a standard hotel, this was absolutely beautiful, charming, and small. We felt very special. Perfect walking distance to Sonoma centre for excellent restaurants, wine tasting and lots of unique shops. Breakfast was delicious and we evn got a packed breakfast when we went out early one day. I cannot fault it!

The inn is located not far from the town square and in walking distance to many great restaurants but still in a very quiet neighborhood. Perfect Location. Donna and her staff were very friendly and helpful at all times and the service was great. It's a very romantic and relaxing setting that we can really recommend.

I was a little leary after reading the previous tepid review but my husband and I could not have been happier with this property. Donna and her staff were warm and welcoming and made every effort to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We stayed in the Garden Room which felt like our own beautiful, private English-countryside guest cottage set in a stunning English garden. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the bath had a wonderful claw-foot tub/shower with unlimited hot water. The continental-style breakfast was sumptious and centered around an abundance of fresh locally grown fruit. About a 5-min walk to the town square.

Inn was quiet, room was private. Nice walk to the town square. Continental breakfast was adequate and staff very helpful. Would recommend.
