About

An elegant Victorian Bed & Breakfast Inn located on the village green in Chester, where you’ll find great restaurants and fascinating shops. We have eight romantic guest rooms and suites all with Queen or King bed and furnished with beautiful antiques. Each room has its own charm and unique features: all beds have 1000 count sheets with feather toppers, several rooms have fire places, cable, LCD flat screen TV, CD, DVD, Ipod docking alarm clocks & WiFi. Two first floor rooms have a private deck with hot tub. All have private bathrooms, (some larger than most B & B bedrooms!!!) with quality toiletries, fluffy towels and guest robes. We give you a choice of claw foot tubs, huge double showers, soaking tubs or Jacuzzi made for two. Enjoy gourmet breakfasts (our specialty!), with English antique bone china, crystal glass and silver table ware. We serve afternoon tea with non stop home baked goods. We can arrange dinner or light supper (by prior request). But best of all is the warm and genuine “Royal” welcome to your “Palace” in Vermont. Visit our website for more information at .innvictoria

Very disappointing breakfast

3.0 on August 16, 2018

Selected in part because of food reiews. Maybe we had a bad day. One reviewer spoke of thick waffles. Read that so dense it was like multiple layers of cardboard pressed together - waffles are suppossed to be light. First course was home made bread, again so dense was inedible. Nice fruit, but came covered in marscopone, would have been nice on side or asked if wanted it. We scrapped to side, but no one took hint, waffles came topped with whipped cream. ASK. Or have a menu out so can defer. No menu. No indication of what we would be served. No eggs offered. No choices. Food just came. Only people at breakfast and still took forever. 5-10 minutes between each 'course'. Left hungry with most food only partially eaten. No one asked how liked or if a problem. Wait staff too busy chatting in kitchen with each other to worry about guests.

Innkeeper Response
Dear unhappy guest. It really would have been great to speak to Dan directly with your issues as things don't get so blown up and you don't go away unhappy. My mother was dying so I was away and Dan had to be the all in all. In our rooms there is a note on every bed when you arrive that tells you that you may ask for eggs or ask what the breakfast is going to be so that you can request something else. We do not put marscapone on our fruit, it is Cabot Vanilla Bean greek yogurt. Once again, just ask to have another fruit delivered if you didn't like. We will always aim to make our guests happy, it only takes asking. Often it is hard to decide how to many minutes to wait in between courses, some people get angry if we serve too fast. Others get angry if we con't put whipped cream. The best advice for your future stays at bed and breakfasts is to talk to the innkeeper ahead of time and let him/her know your requests so that you get the experience you are wishing for.

Wonderful romantic weekend with the wife

5 on May 05, 2018

My wife and I stayed in the Prince Alfred room for a weekend. The room itself was beautiful. The large (and very clean) bath tub was a nice touch that my wife really enjoyed using to relax after a long day of fun. Penny and Dan were very charming and accommodating hosts. They made us feel very much at home, and they were very friendly. When we mentioned that we were heading to Buttermilk Falls, Penny shared a fun anecdote about it that made our trip a little more interesting. Breakfast was always delicious. High Tea was also very fun. The great accommodations and atmosphere really helped me give my wife a great romantic weekend, so I really appreciated everything.

Innkeeper Response
