Your boutique Bed and Breakfast in Beautiful Victoria, BC.

Staying at the Gatsby Mansion is truly like taking a trip back in time.  The prestigious mansion, with its rich history and Victorian era charm, offers a unique bed and breakfast experience in Victoria BC.

The Gatsby Mansion is both elegant and charming, appointed with nine rooms, each uniquely decorated to portray their distinct personality.  Dating back to 1897 the mansion was built in a Queen Ann style (1880-1910) with every detail reflecting the architectural influence of the time, from its asymmetrical facade to its wainscot paneling.  The stained-glassed windows are all originals, boasting the Pendray family name, the original owners of the mansion. The main level of the mansion currently serves as a Tea House, offering traditional Afternoon Teas for a quintessential British experience. You can find in the landscaped gardens surrounding the Gatsby Mansion the original roses planted by Mr. Pendray over a century ago, complimented by carefully crafted topiary sculptures.

Renovations at the Gatsby Mansion

The Gatsby Mansion is undergoing exciting refurbishment. With the renovations, we are dedicated to maintain the building’s heritage characteristics while implementing modern comfort and amenities. So far, the Queen Ann, Garden and Belleville suites have been completed, each with its own colour scheme, while the remaining rooms should be completed by the end of the year. Renovations are being conducted in a manner that does not affect our in-house guests.
