“Just lovely!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2012

We loved everything: the unique building, the beautiful decoration, the Victorian Rose room with very comfortable bed, the quietness, the wonderful hosts, the excellent breakfast and afternoon snacks. What other reviewers didn't mention so often: we very much enjoyed the afternoon talks with Nona and Richard as well as fascinating other guests. And as the unique place seems to attract unique guests, there is always a good chance for interesting conversations.
Little downsides: not much space for our big suitcases in the room; only window that opened was the patio door; the lock on the patio door didn't work, we couldn't do more than pull it closed though the patio was shared with other rooms and accessable from the street...
Nevertheless we would definitely stay there again, and we very much hope that we really will make it again though it's pretty far from home in Germany...

The Victorian Rose is such a unique and lovely B & B. I can't say enough good things about Nona and Richard. They really go all out to make certain everyone is comfortable and welcome. The decor is so unique and historical.
Both Nona and Richard are so very helpful to guide one to the best places to eat, and visit.

One of our favorite places to stay, we will be back soon!

Room Tip: All rooms are unique.

Excellent hospitality, warmth and breakfast, great wine and cheese reception, convenient location to beach and downtown, bed in Wysteria room should be replaced- sinks 4 inches when you sit on it, no mattress topper, uncomfortable. Deck off of room a nice addition, plants on deck need some attention, decor a bit worn- could benefit from a deep cleaning, air circulation in main room absent. Incredible ambiance with sunlight filtering through stained glass windows, clean and unusual bathroom. Peaceful setting. Welcoming.

Room Tip: Choose room on NW corner of building. No streets neighbor this side of the building and it has it...

Looks like a fantastic place but... I made a reservation on their website that appeared to go through. I called them to verify and was told they were sold out and I didn't have a reservation. So if you are planning to stay there just call them to make your reservation until the web is updated.
I was disappointed but will try again some other time.

This was my second stay at the Victorian Rose. This was a relax and loaf around Ventura weekend. I felt my shoulders drop 2 inches when I was welcomed by Nona! The room and deck were just what I needed. I slept SOOOO well - the bed was delightfully comfortable. You couldn't ask for more gracious hosts or a more peaceful environment. And then there were Swedish pancakes....need I say more!

Room Tip: Rooms opening onto the deck are wonderful

My wife and I stayed at the Victoria Rose B&B during our 1-week vacation in late March 2012. The accommodations were excellent and the breakfasts, prepared by Nona and Richard, are fantastic (and filling)! That's ok - Ventura is a walker friendly town - lots of places to walk to and see. Richard willingly shares his wealth of knowledge about places to see and where to eat (and where not to eat!). Overall, a great experience.

We stayed at the Victorian Rose Bed and Breakfast and we were amazed at the labor of love. The Inn Keepers, Nona and Richard were warm and hospital. I had a dietary restriction and Nona went out of her way to cater to my needs. The room was fabulous (we stayed in the Victorian Rose). Each room has a life of it's own and tells a different story. The home made goodies served at the Wine and Cheese Hour were wonderful. Breakfast was fantastic. I plan on going back again as soon as I can. If you haven't tried this place.. you should. You will be pampered beyond your expectations.

Room Tip: The Emperors Suite and Timeless Treasure have jacuzzi baths. Our room was the Victorian Rose we had...
