We have been coming to the Virginia since the 90s. A few years ago we had a bad experience and decided never again. Since we frequent other Cape Resorts establishments (Congress Hall) we decided to give it another shot after receiving a promotional email. There were not many rooms available since they were pretty booked. So we booked 6/23/14-6/25/14 a...

The management and proprietors have no compassion. We had stayed in the guest cottages during summer for several years without incident so I recommended it to my sister for her anniversary. She bought a special promotion advertised for February. Her dog became very ill the week before the scheduled visit so she asked management (Ms. Rothberg) for an extension into...

Lalapuj, Thank you for taking the time out to write a review. I am so sorry for the loss of your sister's dog. Our pets are our friends and they are certainly family members and when they pass it is sad. My condolences to you and your sister. Had I know of the severity of the situation I certainly would...

Wonderful Victorian ambiance if a little tired. The porch/veranda is lovely and in the shade during the hottest part of the day. We loved the breakfast routine. The evening before you check off what you want. It is delivered to you in your room, in the lounge, or on the porch. If you are looking for a B&B or a...

The hotel is tired and needs to up its service. Our greeting was a front staircase matt with a large hole in it. The bathroom had cracked tiles, the breakfast is a joke. Sorry they ruined what should have been a lovely stay. The best service was from the valet.

My Aunt and I visited the Virginia Hotel, in the Pink Cottage, from May 26th through the 29th. things went wrong from the moment we entered our rooms. Lose door knob, noisy air conditioner, incomplete coffee set up, cheap furniture and no telephone in the rooms. Never had dinner in the Ebbitt room because we had to wait 20 minutes...

Recently discovered the Virginia Hotel with an excellent restaurant called the Ebbitt Room for outstanding food. This is among a collection of hotels privately owned with the Congress Hall among them. The hotel is meticulously maintained, with an emphasis on pampering and trying to meet high expectations. Continental breakfast is included which can be served either in your room but...

We had a wonderful two night stay in mid-May. the room is cosy, but very comfortable. The linens are high quality as are the room amenities (e.g., Bulgari bath products). The continental breakfast was tasty (yummy muffins and artisanal bread). The inn provided free valet parking. We had also brought our bicycles and were able to lock them up at...
