Another wonderful experience at Queen Victoria

5 on October 29, 2014

My husband and I celebrated another wedding anniversary at the Queen Victoria. The owners make you feel so welcome, like part of the family. The staff is all so pleasant and everyone provides excellent customer service. The food is always great---breakfast and the sweet and savory snacks at tea time. We have stayed many times and this is the best bed and breakfast that I have ever stayed at. They think of everything from bath beads to bicycles and beach chairs. The location can't be beat either---between the ocean and the commons (Washington St. Mall). We already have a return trip in December booked. We can't wait to be pampered again!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much. Anna Marie and I are very pleased that you've selected The Queen Victoria as your anniversary celebration destination. We're also glad that you feel so welcome here. You certainly are! I hope we get to see you again soon (you don't have to wait for your anniversary!)


35th Wedding anniversary

5 on September 20, 2014

My husband and I celebrated our 35th wedding Anniversary at the Queen Victoria on September 8th. I always wanted to stay at a bed and breakfast in Cape May NJ, and fortunately picked the most beautiful one there. It was an outstanding experience!! Our wonderfully decorated room had a small deck with an ocean view,The delicious breakfast was served in an ornate dining room by a most courteous and friendly staff. And we looked for to tea time every afternoon,where we gathered around with people from all parts of the country, and shared with each other conversation and most importantly , the tasty deserts offered that day,. And most importantly the owners Anna Marie and Doug made us feel relaxed and welcomed. Thank you for a great experience and cant wait till we go back again!

Innkeeper Response
I'm very happy that your 35th Anniversary celebration at The Queen Victoria was such a wonderful experience for you. We're always honored and thrilled when people choose to celebrate the special moments in their life at our inn. The balcony rooms in our "House of Royals" building are great places to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning, or perhaps a glass of wine in the evening as you gaze down at the ocean. Tea time is always enjoyable, I'm glad that you thought so too. I hope that your wait until your next visit won't be a long one!


Best B&B in Cape May!

5 on August 31, 2014

The Queen Victoria in Cape May is the B&B that all others in the tourism industry should use as their benchmark. The rooms at the Queen are a delight; clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated with vintage pieces, reflective of the Victorian time in history. Each one is unique and we love to try a different room each visit. The breakfasts are delicious and tea is not to be missed. It is the best in Cape May! Very centrally located, the Queen Victoria is a short one block walk to the beach, two blocks to the shopping mall and a quick walk to many wonderful restaurants. As a matter of fact, once you park your car you really don't need to use it since everything is near by. At the heart of this B&B are the owners and staff of the QV. Always pleasant, helpful and available, their attention to detail is amazing. They work seamlessly to make your stay perfect in every way. We can't wait to go back for our next visit!

Innkeeper Response
I love the title of this review. I'm so glad you feel that way. Cleanliness is incredibly important to us, and we focus an enormous amount of energy and time making sure that our staff are keeping up the standards we've set for ourselves. It sounds like you've been "sleeping around" (an old innkeeper joke)the inn, trying out lots of rooms. Each one has its own charms and character, as you've no doubt discovered. Thanks so much for this review and for your loyal patronage of The Queen Victoria.


Wonderful experience at the Queen Victoria

5 on August 30, 2014

From check-in to check -out our stay was perfect. Anne Marie & Doug make sure your every need is met. Our Osbourne Suite was delightful, very private& our own parking space. The room was spotless. The inn is one block from the ocean & one block to shopping, perfect location. Doug made our dinner reservations & his choices were perfect! Will see you again real soon!

Innkeeper Response
Perfect is a word that I LOVE to see in a review. I'm glad you felt that way about your stay at The Queen Victoria. Osborne is one of our most popular rooms, so you chose a great one to start with. I'm also pleased that my dinner suggestions worked so well for you. I hope that we will get to see you again soon! Thanks!


Outstanding B&B in the heart of Cape May

5 on August 26, 2014

Our stay at the Queen Victoria was amazing. We got there before check in but we were still able to drop off our stuff, use the bikes, beach towels, beach chairs, and the outdoor shower. We also had access to the pantry to grab a couple waters and coffee before we left for the beach. The room we stayed in was beautiful. It was very clean and the bathroom was newly redone. We loved the turn down service and we were even pleased to find our bed made after breakfast. The breakfast was fantastic. There was a good variety of food and all of it was homemade. Last but definitely not least, the staff was amazing. Everyone was so kind and helpful. We are definitely going to make this our B&B choice every year!!

Innkeeper Response

cleanliness

5 on June 29, 2014

It is so imporant to me that my room is very clean! The Queen Victoria is the Inn for me! Not only is it clean, the rooms are comfortable, elegant and relaxing. Anna Marie and Doug ate gracious hosts and we look forward to chats with them when dining on the delicious breakfasts!


FAVORITE B&B

5 on June 16, 2014

We love staying at The Queen Victoria. Doug and Anne Marie set a most gracious tone, every detail is lovely and commodious. The location is central to beach, shopping and dining. Free bicycle use is a really fun offering. The breakfasts are delicious and varied. We'll be back!


30th Anniversary

5 on May 26, 2014

My wife and I spent our 30th anniversary at the Queen Victoria, we reserved the Regent Park which was actually a detached cottage, a pleasant surprise. The McMain's have developed a wonderful system and have great staff that met all of our expectations and provided us the perfect anniversary weekend. Coupled with the town of Cape May it is a winning combination. we really enjoyed breakfast on the terrace and talking with the other guests, who came from all corners of the country.
