Jamestown is a good resting place between the majestic grandeur of Yosemite and the history of the gold rush towns, although Jamestown itself is steeped in railway history. Victorian Gold is a homely B&B with a range of nice rooms (or at least the ones on the ground floor we saw were nice). As with most B&Bs, the owners 'retire' for the night reasonably early but are available should you encounter a problem. We didn't thankfully, but we did make use of the free coffee and cookies that were available through the evening. It's location is good, just a few minutes walking up a hill from downtown Jamestown so you won't need to drive to your local eatery (we recommend the National Hotel; it was one of only two open the night we visited Jamestown).
Breakfast consisted of fruit juice, coffee or tea, an absolutely gorgeous apple cake (I was tempted to go back for seconds but that might have denied another guest their piece) followed by a fairly standard cooked breakfast. You have a choice of sitting 'inside' or 'outside', the latter being the conservatory. We sat inside and were joined by three members of a family and enjoyed lively conversation. It was a good start to our day.
