“Loved Victoria's Keep”
Reviewed 2 October 2008

1892 Victoria's Keep was just what we needed for our Honey-Moon. Slightly secluced, but close enough to walk to anything in Manitou Springs. We stayed in the Royal Chambers which had it's own entrance which allowed us to feel like the only people alive if we wanted to. It was perfect for spending time together as newly-weds. The Breakfast was amazing every morning, don't miss it. The tub was awesome, but the bath salts provided were a little harsh while using the jets. The decor was quaint and all the little touches made us feel right at home. Carmels in a candy dish, fresh made cookies, board games you could take to your room were all little things that really showed they cared about their guests. The staff was amazing, and we have to give a special kudos to Heather. She was very friendly and shared lots of information about the B&B. She always went the extra mile to help us out from printing up a coupon for us, or making a suggestion for where to go for dinner. Without her outgoing personality our experience would not have felt complete. We are planning on returning for our Anniversary, and we hope to hear about your stay in the book that is out for guests to right in. By the way if you stay here you should go to the Iron Springs Chateau Melodrama. It was hillarious.

After looking online for B&B's in Manitou Springs my wife and I decided we liked what we saw and took the advice of other reviews to book 3 nights at Victoria's Keep.

It was the best decision we've ever made when staying in Manitou. We have done local motels before, but this was a great experience for us. We love staying in B&B's and enjoy the relationships that are established, not only with the owners, but the guest too.

Jay and Karen (owners) were terrific as well as their 1st assistant Sheenga. They all went way beyond what others would do to make our stay pleasent. They called ahead to make dinner reservations for us and one morning we were not able to make breakfast, so they packed us a sack of goodies to take with us....fruit, bagels, peanut butter, yogart and of course coffee that's available at 8:00 a.m. each morning.

I will refer all friends to stay at Victoria's Keep, so you need not worry about making reservations to stay there. The rooms are very comfortable (great beds) and there are always cookies in the afternoon for you to snack on and they are homemade.

We were extreamly pleased with the attention and service we received. IT'S AN A+ B&B.

My wife and I stayed in an upstairs room and daughter and son-law downstairs for three nights.

It was fabulous. The inn keepers and staff were terrific, the breakfasts were wonderful. The location is great - a short stroll to main street restaurants, shops, etc.

I particularly liked the common room, internet access, endless cookies, comfortable furniture.

All-in-all, a wonderful B & B experience - and we have been to many, many B & B's.

PS. It's not the B &B's fault, but I would avoid the Manitou Iron Springs Chateau meal and show. I guess the vaudeville show is OK in a campy sort of way, but the meal is way below par.

From the moment we went into this B&B to the day we left it was amazing. We booked the Royal Suite for our 9 year anniversary and were totally thrilled that we did. The room was beautiful with a large bathtub for two and it's own private entrance. The service was amazing and the innkeepers were extremely friendly and helpful. They made us feel right at home. There was lots of yummy treats and of course homemade cookies. The breakfasts were original and very yummy. The B&B is located right at the edge of town so it is a short walk to almost anywhere. I would highly recommend this place to anyone that is looking for a relaxing getaway.

We stayed at Victoria's Keep on our wedding night, as our reception was just down the road in Manitou Springs. We booked the Royal Chambers Suite, which was beautiful and had its own private entrance (which was great, since it was almost midnight when we got back from the reception). The staff person who helped us was wonderful and accomodating...we had to be at the airport at 11am to leave for our honeymoon and asked if we could have breakfast in the room so we could sleep in...muffins, orange juice, coffee, and fresh fruit were left in our room for us to enjoy. Our stay was short and we wished we could have enjoyed the Inn longer, but it was definitely a great choice for the start of our honeymoon!

  • Liked — Everything!
  • Disliked — That we couldn't stay longer...but we'll be back for our anniversary!

We loved everything about the inn right down to the complimentary cookies. We found the place online and planned our whole honeymoon around it. The owners and staff were wonderful. They helped us find restaurants and looked up information on the local attractions. The room was fantastic. The beds were extremely comfortable especially after a long day of sightseeing. Each room is unique in its own way. After seeing all the rooms it's hard to say which is the best. You can't go wrong by booking your next vacation at Victoria's Keep Bed and Breakfast.

  • Liked — Great central location to all surrounding historic sights!
