Arrived Thursday afternoon and met the owner Bill McLeod and his wife she had the flu and was laying on the sofa. My wife has a problem with stairs so Bill made arrangements downstairs for us, and my 2 granddaughters. The granddaughters didn't stay with us. The next morning we had breakfast with Bill and the other guests. Bill had made a great breakfast for us and even fixed my wife gluten-free muffins. Had a wonderful experience there and will stay there again.
We stayed while the hosts were away and there were innsitters hosting the inn. They were great and very gracious. We felt very welcomed and we had a very positive experience. I would recommend this inn to friends and family looking to stay in Victoria! The house is old and the facilities are likewise but it is a very charming place none-the-less.
Lovely old house but needs much work and updating. Very cluttered and messy. Towels and linens all need to be replaced. Breakfast is eaten with the owners, which we found unusual. Also the doors to your room can not be locked when you are gone. They showed us all the rooms, even though they were rented. We were disappointed and will not return.
I recently stayed at Friendly Oaks and was so pleasantly surprised. Mr. and Mrs. McLeod were both so sweet and friendly! I felt like I went to visit family. Mr. McLeod is the chef, and he's outstanding! I truly loved staying there! I wish I could've stayed longer and certainly would stay there again if ever I visit that area for business or personal reasons! I highly recommend it!
Staying at the inn was a wonderful experience. We enjoyed the historic ambiance very much- we enjoyed the detailed history of the town and the state of Texas presented by our knowledgeable hosts. The breakfast was divine. We will recommend to our friends and family!
The room was comfortable but the room seemed cluttered/dusty and closet smelled like mothballs. The breakfasts were excellent. I've stayed at other B&Bs with owners on site but in this case I felt like I had to check in and explain my comings and goings. I had to request a key for the house and you are unable to lock the door to your room when you leave. The owners were very kind but a bit too chatty for my taste.
Lovely visit in a quaint period house. Hosts were very knowledgeable and friendly. Absolutely wonderful breakfast served on the porch and enjoyed visiting with other guests. House is full of wonderful items, many unique.
Hosts were very friendly and charming people;however, a bit too chatty for me. I wasn't aware they actually resided in the house and that was not comfortable. The room and food were good. Porch area, kitchen and other areas were too cluttered.
This was my first time to stay at the Friendly Oaks, and I can't say enough great things about my experience. Bill and CeeBee treated me like one of their family and I will continue to stay here when traveling in and around Victoria. I can't wait for my next trip, as well as my next stay at Friendly Oaks! Thanks Bill and CeeBee! Craig Harris- Plano, Texas
We (my wife and I) have stayed at Friendly Oaks on two occasions in the past two years while traveling to the south Texas area. The first was by chance and the second by reservation. Both visits have been completely enjoyable and relaxing. The hosts are friendly, helpful and sincerely interested in the comfort and enjoyment of their guests. They are kind and very interesting persons. Next time we go that way (we live in Houston) we will include a stop at Friendly Oaks in our travel plans even if it requires a little additional time.
I just returned from a lovely two night stay at Friendly Oaks. This B&B is located in the historic section of Victoria, within easy walking distance of interesting architecture. The hosts were friendly and knowledgeable of local restaurants and other points of interest. Absolutely fabulous homemade banger sausages Scottish royal pancakes. The accompanying citrus Drambuie syrup was a unique treat!!!
