“Great location, disappointing room”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2013

The location was great, centrally located and close to the stairs that lead to uptown. The staff were nice and friendly. We stayed in room 16, a 2BR Suite, the room was very outdated and the furniture was very old. It was pricey for what you got.

There are some kinds of charm that just can't be faked. This is a true Victorian hotel, and our accommodations were just lovely. We stayed in #18; this was especially nice, because it gave us the extra air circulation of a corner room (no air conditioning, not an issue for us). We didn't mind the stairs, but folks with health concerns should request a room on the lower floor. Port Townsend is fun, quirky, and beautiful! And the Bishop is a perfect fit!

Room Tip: Corner suite was lovely!

stayed in room 11
which was one of the "dog friendly" room
Decor was tired and sad
sheets were rough
decor felt like you were staying at grandma's house rather than charming turn of the century.

great location and very quiet still, we couldn't wait to check out

Our drive from Cannon Beach took a little longer than expected and we arrived early evening with no reservation. The staff were very friendly. It was a Wednesday in May so we were lucky to find two choices of rooms available. We chose the King suite on the 3rd floor - #18 - and it was very large and beautifully decorated (the stairs are wide and grand). The bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet. There are wonderful sitting areas on every floor with fresh coffee and tea available. Movies and popcorn were free. Fireplace was cozy. Breakfast is delivered to the door at 7 or 9 and was more than enough to get us going for a day walking the beach and exploring Fort Worden as well as the many shops and restaurants. We had planned to stay only one night but quickly decided we had to stay for two. We ate at all of the recommended restaurants and all were very good. The food at Alchemy Bistro (and the wine) were extra special. The ferry was very convenient as we were headed home to Canada. Would definitely stay at the Bishop Victorian again.

We stayed at the Bishop Victorian for one night during a weekend "parents' escape". It was great. Just a block from Water Street in downtown Port Townsend with plenty of off-street parking, a spacious room and bathroom (ours was #26, a suite), TV with extensive cable channels, DVD with a large collection of movies, free WiFi, in-room breakfast, puzzles in the lobby, and great service start-to-finish. The breakfast was offered at 7am or 9am - 9am worked for us with no little girls to wake us up! We enjoyed the farmer's market, Saturday night gallery walk, drinks and dinner in nearby restaurants, and the wonderful ambience of Port Townsend. We would definitely recommend it and look forward to staying at The Bishop again.

I had a recent overnight stay at this quaint hotel. It was great. Everything from parking to the room to the service. I can't say enough about it. It was quiet and enjoyable even when it was sold out this weekend on Memorial Day. Highly Recommend. Comfortable bed, nice bathroom, everything you need...including a continental service delivered in a basket.
