Royal Victorian Manor
Ranked #1 of 4 Woodstock B&B and Inns
Reviewed 24 July 2016

My husband and I ended our whirlwind vacation with a weekend at the Royal Victorian Manor, and it was the perfect way to wind down and mentally prepare to return to our "real lives." The house is absolutely beautiful, tastefully decorated without clutter, impeccably clean, full of real wood (LOVED the hardwood floors throughout the house.) We loved the spacious, quiet common areas, which were great places to curl up with a book or a laptop or to play a board game (the hosts have several classic games available, which we enjoyed.) The front porch is also perfect for enjoying the sunset or the sound of the rain.

Our room was as lovely as the rest of the house, with a bed that was both ornate and comfortable and a bathroom with a luxury shower (three jets) and plenty of hot water. And the breakfasts were some of the best we've had -- we cleaned our plates every day!

The home is within walking distance of the historic square, which has lots of shops and restaurants as well as a movie theater. It is also close enough to the train station to walk.

Room Tip: If you are a fan of"Groundhog Day," see if you can book the room with Bill Murray's &q...

This place is really nice! It is spotless! The rooms are fantastic, the breakfast was wonderful and the owners were so very kind! I would highly recommend this place if you are looking for somewhere to stay at or near Woodstock, IL. I look forward to staying there again sometime!

The house was more than I could ever expect. So beautiful and clean. The owners Carla and Everton were friendly, helpful, and had great personalities! They were very helpful in giving us tips of where to eat and what to see in town which is a short walk from the house. The breakfast was lavish and amazing. Our room overlooked the front arch and was pristine. This was the most amazing bed and breakfast I have ever stayed at. Highly recommend!!

I have a trip to Illinois coming up in July and was really excited at the prospect of staying at the inn featured in Groundhog Day. Their website has no booking facility so I sent an email well ahead of time in March. The swift reply said they only took booking 90 days from the date in question and that they only took these by phone. Fair enough. So when it got to exactly 90 days from the date in July, I called. I was told to call back the following day, for reasons unknown. I called again the next day and got voicemail, so I left a message. I then reverted to email and they did then say that I could give card details in an email to secure the booking. All the while I was assured that the room I was interested in was available - indeed I assumed it had been at least provisionally booked for me given the fact that I had made so many calls (from there UK) and sent so many emails. I only recently remembered though that in spite of all the communication I hadn't actually sent those card details - which I would have happily given on day one if I'd had the chance - so I emailed these through at the weekend. Now they tell me the house is unavailable for that date due to a private function. What would have happened I wonder if I'd secured the booking a few weeks back when we were last in touch - presumably they would have got in touch to tell me that the booking had been cancelled retrospectively. Anyway I totally understand that it is an independent bed and breakfast run by a couple but I really think they ought to upgrade from pencil, paper and ansaphone for bookings. All very disappointing and more than a little frustrating.

This B&B would not need it's notoriety from the movie Groundhog day to be a success but it only adds to the character. The grounds and Inn are impeccably kept. The furnishings stand out. The Owners/Host's make sure everything is to your liking and entertained us with stories and information about the house, the town and of course the movie. Very comfortable rooms. Every thing about the place has been updated and even though you get the historic feel of the house it has all the modern amenities. The town of Woodstock is everything a small town should be. It is as if you are back in time. Everything here created fond memories of our time spent at the house and in the town. Well worth the visit. Would not mind repeating the day.
