My partner and I stayed in room 1 with private bath and it was perfect for our visit over Independence Week. It's a quiet location on Standish street yet centrally located. As mentioned in previous reviews you are literally in the very heart of Ptown, with Commercial street just a few feet away. The large queen bed provided for great sleeping after nights out on the town. Some very nice bonuses were the large mini fridge, the large shower and the air conditioner worked great! We really needed this during our stay as temps climbed into the 90's on many days. In addition the room was immaculately clean and tastefully decorated. There is also a very nice continental type breakfast spread on the back terrace every morning which consisted of croissants, fresh fruit, different pastries every day, juice, cereal, greek yogurt and coffee. You will not find a better value in all of Ptown and will definitely have a very comfortable stay. Victoria House is one of a kind for this central location and felt like staying in a friend or family's guest room, rather than a guest house.
Also, kudos to Jim for being such an accommodating host! From the time I booked the visit way back in February he went above and beyond providing very useful information via email and over the phone. Jim made great suggestions to ensure our visit went seamlessly. This was quite useful as first time visitors to Provincetown. Jim also went out of his way to suggest a great restaurant the last night of our stay, Fanizzi's by the Sea, which looked delightful. Unfortunately we didn't get in... We'lll have to go there next time. Victoria House would definitely be my first choice next time in Provincetown.
