This was our second stay at the Fife and Drum and once again we were not disappointed. The beds and showers are great and the location in Merchant's Square makes this the best place to stay in Williamsburg.

Billy was extremely friendly and did a great job providing advice of what to do in Colonial Williamsburg. The Inn was very clean, and the decor was really nice. We had a great stay here! Location was awesome - just a very short walk to the shops and sites.

The location of the 'Fife & Drum Inn' is so convenient, right in Colonial Williamsburg & the accomodation is very tasteful, comfortable and clean. Billy's efforts to help us make the most of our visit were outstanding & his advice most helpful. All food offered was beautiful -perhaps a wider range of breads at breakfast would have been good, but... More

Located within steps of the College of William and Mary, and at the edge of Colonial Williamsburg, you can't beat this bed and breakfast for location. Rooms are well sized but still cozy; and decorated with antiques without being fussy. The hot breakfast buffet is varied, tasty and filling. (But, late sleepers beware, it's only available till 9am.) The owners... More

Breakfast was delicious. The free cookies hit the spot every afternoon. The staff was really friendly and they let us check in early. The only thing that could have made our stay better was to have better coffee in the afternoon. But then again, Aromas was right down the stairs so the coffee situation really didn't feel like a set... More

Recently stayed at the Fife and Drum and it was amazing. Fantastic staff, nicely decorated rooms accompanied by a great breakfast. Located right next to multiple restaurants and shops and a quick walk to Colonial Williamsburg.

Besides being in a super convenient location for visiting Colonial Williamsburg, and being ultra clean, well laid out, and so nicely decorated, the Fife & Drum Inn has superb customer service. We arrived well after the town had shut down at night, but found an envelope with our name and a key posted on the front door, and freshly baked... More

My wife & I recently stayed at the Fife & Drum Inn during a business trip. Although we have stayed in Williamsburg numerous times over the years, this was our first encounter at the Fife & Drum. Accomodations were wonderfully warm & charming. Billy & Sharon displayed true Virginia hospitality with a delicious breakfast as well as lemonade, coffee &... More

From the hearty breakfast to the towels tied with twine, Billy and his staff know how to provide an atmosphere that is warm and friendly. Have visited four times now in the last three years and have stayed in just about every room and very pleased. This place is right in the next to colonial Williamsburg and William and Mary.... More
