Colonial Williamsburg is only a half block away, Market Square is across the street and one of the best restaurants in town is directly opposite the Fife and Drum Inn. The rooms were spacious, the decor was very charming and breakfast was excellent. Billy and Sharon are greats hosts and always ready to help with information on things to see... More

Great location! Clean and fresh! For those who like the idea of a bed and breakfast but like comfort,privacy and modern conveniences too. This is the place!!!! The owners have out done themselves and should be very proud creating a wonderful escape.

Billy and Sharon were so gracious as hosts. They were very informative About places to dine and how best to get around. The inn is at a great location so we did not have to use our car while there! Breakfasts were varied and delicious. The rooms are very comfortable with a "Williamsburg" atmosphere. Will definitely return!

Great location and excellent accommodations. The Fife and Drum has it all. I am planning to return again and again and again as I have a daughter entering as a freshman at William and Mary in the fall, and this place will make the visit with her even more special and something to look forward to. Also, the breakfast was... More

This was my husband's and my third time to stay at the Fife and Drum and in fact we made our reservations for an October trip before we left. The convenience of location is amazing. I love parking our car in their off street lot and never having to drive again until we are ready to leave. Billy and Sharon... More

clean, comfortable, quiet. Billy is a gracious and helpful host. Breakfast is good. I would stay here again because I can walk everywhere in Williamsburg and W&M. Ask about the different rooms. Some have more than one bed. The drummers cottage is large, private, and comfortable but I missed breakfast and the wifi.

We had a great time at the Fife and Drum. Our hosts were friendly and provided great information and insight to the local area. The room was clean, comfortable, and well maintained and the perfect place to rest after a long day of sight seeing and had a self controlled thermostat. Breakfast in the morning was a great way to... More

You cannot beat the location of this wonderful B&B! Right next to the College of William and Mary in the historic area of Williamsburg... easy walk to anywhere! And this place is SUPER clean. Billy and Sharon are wonderful hosts, and will give you the skinny on what to do and see in Williamsburg. Kid friendly as well, with several... More

Loved the location of this property, and the reviews were good so we thought we would try it. This will be our go to place to stay in Williamsburg from now on. The only downside is often there is a two night minimum stay and sometimes we are just going for one night. The proprietors, Billy and Sharon, are wonderful,... More
