I'm still new to the B&B scene so I don't have more than a handful of experiences to go off. Overall this place was pretty decent and the service was wonderful. The breakfast was tasty and Miss Abilene herself gave us all the options for dinner. If I find myself driving through that area again I will definitely stay there again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Abilene and at the Victorian Inn B&B. The Inn's location was perfect for our activities and walking distance to downtown area. Bonuses: - Breakfast was awesome when we were able to participate - Place was spotless - Large rooms - Loved the 1930's and 1940's LIFE magazines. Slightly less than perfect: - Bed/mattress was creaky and not the most comfortable (maybe part of the charm) - Set breakfast time so were unable to attend 2 of 4 morning due conference schedule and need to travel. Though we did appreciate the granola bars and coffee it fell short of expectations after the gourmet breakfasts we did enjoy.

The house is beautifully decorated and as true to the period as can be allowed. The breakfasts were elegantly served and outstanding presentation. All our needs were met. Very large rooms and plenty of space for relaxing.

Adrian was the perfect hostess. She went out of her way to check for dietary restrictions and made a delicious gluten-free breakfast for us. The Inn is beautifully decorated and impeccably maintained. The price is the same as the Holiday Inn, but you get a gourmet breakfast, excellent company, and a delightful ambiance along with a clean, well-appointed room. In addition to all this, there is free wireless, cable tv, and and an extensive video collection. I will be back!

It reminds me of Southern hospitality all rolled in setting of the old Victorian mansions of old. The chef is a beauty queen gourmet delight. The morning breakfast are something out of the finest gourmet establishments. The hostess is not only a wonderful chef but a gracious smiling angel sent down from heaven. Deena and I would suggest that anyone and everyone try this B&B or you have missed out on a glorious stay in the quietness of Abilene. Deena and I have stayed in over 75 B&Bs and this is absolutely this better. John and Deena Baird Arizona

We enjoyed our 2 night stay so much. From the comfortable, friendly atmosphere to the delicious breakfasts with lively conversation, we are hooked on staying at bed & breakfasts!

We could not have picked a nicer place to introduce us to Abilene, and could not have met two nicer people as our hosts. There is not enough room here to thank them for their hospitality, not to mention the wonderful food. And we were fortunate to share all this with other great guests. Because of all this, we intend to return to Abilene - possible over the Christmas season - all see things we did not have time for on this trip. Hopefully we'll be able to stay here at that time.
