We stayed in a 2 bedroom condo, upper level (as suggested by tripadvisor reviewers). We enjoyed the space. Everything we needed for 3+ night stay was ready for us. The coffee I made was terrible for some reason, even with bottled water, perhaps the maker itself produced somewhat chemical tasting brew, not a big deal. There's coffee available on site.... More

The resort is undergoing some transformation due to new ownership. We had one of newer units. Comfortable and spacious. Appliances need updating. Surrounding area will not allow you to be bored. Local to everything. Great experience. Staff was both helpful and knowledgeable of the area. Minutes from Busch Gardens, Water Country USA, Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown. Less than an... More

The tour consists of a brief history of the Manor house then reported ghosts that are at the Manor house and surrounding grounds. The Manor house is the oldest building on the premises and is over 250 years old. The tour costs $10... More

I'd give this review 4 stars aside from the 'sell' at check in. Our family of 6 (2 adults, 4 kids) stayed in the two bedroom upstairs. First The good: - The condo was superb. It was great to have dishes, pots/pans/silverware, a toaster, microwave, dishwasher and all the amenities we needed to do all our meals at the room.... More

not the best, not the best this property is owned by Diamond resorts and they want to sell you a timeshare/points, etc. you can choose to get some good discounts on admission to Busch Gardens, etc. if you go to the 3 hour sales pitch. We saved over $200, so, if you are willing to spend your time for that... More

We stayed at the historic Powhatan resort while on a week long trip to Busch Gardens. Check in was easy! Staff was amazingly friendly. This is a time share resort but not once during my stay was I asked to participate in any presentation until check out. We rented a 2 bedroom 2 bath unit. Not filthy but did have... More

A little bit of something for everyone. Rooms were beautiful, and so was the common areas. With so much to do like mini golf, the pool, daily activities and a restaurant there was something for everyone. I especially loved the tour of the manor. A little onsite history! Our tour guide Mary was very knowledgeable. Historic Grounds has GREAT coffee,... More

This was our third time staying at this facility. The grounds are well kept and the staff attentive. The units are spacious and well equipped. Our unit had a hot tub which we put to good use everyday after a lot of walking while sightseeing. The pool area is very vibrant and kept the children busy. For the first time... More
