Hotels >The Victorian Rose
We had a lovely stay at this gorgeous Victorian hoome. The accomodations were great and the hospitality was lovely.
Doris was very nice and shared some of her travel experiences with us. Excellent breakfast, large bathroom, and very clean!
sitting on the spacious front porch and watching Mount Joy "go by" and then going into the comfortable dining room for a glorious breakfast was a great way to start the day. Their slogan is, "Where our guests are like family" and I told Doris this was accurate; she bossed me around just like my wife does when we're home!
The Victorian Rose is a lovely bed and breakfast in Mt. Joy. The innkeeper is an older woman who can serve a good breakfast. The whole house is decorated for Christmas including a tree in the living area.
Our room (the Elizabeth) was very clean
and ornately decorated. There was a tree dedicated to the red hat society in it that was very pretty.
Our room had a bathroom in it. The other rooms are larger than the Elizabeth but the bathrooms for them are across the hall (they each have a bathroom but you have to go across the hall to get to them.)
The owner was very friendly and prepared a bountiful breakfast for us. We had strawberry shortcake, a large plate of cut fruit, delicious french toast with real Vermont maple syrup and crispy bacon. She even offered seconds but we declined. The owner has obviously painstakingly decorated the entire house. If you like victorian, you'll love the victorian rose.
The place is spotlessly clean. Our bathroom was gleaming. Our bedroom was crisp, neat, and totally clean. This is an incredibly important factor in selecting a place. I give top points to this establishment for cleanliness.
The breakfast is large and filling with lots of coffee, fruit, eggs, potatoes, bacon, and apple cobbler.
for less than $100, you can't go wrong here. The place is clean, centrally located, and if you have a lighthearted sense of fun and quirky humor, you too can find amusement in the ruffled decor and perma-Christmas theme.
Terrible experience, will not go back. I just stayed at this B&B and the hostess, Doris, was so rude and obnoxious that it ruined our visit. Also, the bed was very hard and the bathroom is down the hall, making it very inconvenient if you need to use the bathroom late at night. My opinion is based mostly on how rude Doris was. She told us to park in the back of her house, then refused to let us enter the back door, and scolded us for telling her how strange this was. Then she yelled at me again for needing to go through her kitchen to get to my car. She stood there, in my presence, yelling at and berating some man who was washing dishes for her. She didn't ask us anything about us or our trip, but talked "at" us at length about how much she hated having a B&B and how terrible her life was. The final insult was when she scolded another couple at breakfast for trying to use a gift certificate from bedandbreakfast dot com, a website that Doris advertises on. The entire experience with Doris was simply bizarre.
Editorial Review. Victorian gothic church turned B&B features stained glass windows, a steeple and library. Rooms have heating, air conditioning and fireplaces.
