We stayed at the Fife and Drum this past weekend for our 45th wedding anniversary, which included a train trip from Alexandria, Virginia to Williamsburg. We were so happy we stayed here, since it was an easy walk from the Amtrak station and another easy walk to get to all the attractions and restuarants in Colonial Williamsburg. The hosts left...

Spent two days at the F&D in March, 2014. We have been here many times as the location and atmosphere is great! We always enjoy being here. Parking is around the corner, rooms are small but comfortable. Breakfast is always good, although simple. The only complaints we have is that the facility is on 2d floor and would appreciate replacing... More

Top notch... Clean, friendly, great breakfast, so much to do in the area. This was our second visit. Once for Christmas and we enjoyed Christmas town at Busch Gardens. Second was for our anniversary. I would highly recommend

We stayed at the Fife & Drum, in The Cedar suite, for a special occasion and it was wonderful - quaint & cozy but not too small. Our room was on the back of the B&B, away from the main street and we did not hear any street noise all night. We walked to dinner on Duke of Gloucester street... More

Having traveled throughout many countries and countless hotels and bed and breakfasts, this one is one of the top. I would for sure stay here again in a heartbeat. - The rooms had a few extra touches that put it over the top and worth the money spent. Be sure to check out the Conservatory Room if you stay here.... More

With an in-town location, everything was steps away - restaurants, shops, Wm & Mary, and Colonial Williamsburg itself. The inn is totally charming. Sharon and Billy conception and decor was remarkable to us every time we entered and reentered the establishment. The lodfging is not just accommodating and comfortable but visually "fun". You will see what we mean. Breakfasts were... More

Breakfast in the morning was excellent and the gyn awaits as I try to lose those extra pounds. The Inn is wonderfully located, one bloc from the histories district to... More

I live in Va Beach and wanted a short get away for my boyfriend's birthday. Williamsburg is about 45 minutes so I chose that area. I was interested in the Outlet Mall and Williamsburg Winery as well. Fife and Drum Inn is the only B&B in the downtown area of Colonial Williamsburg, and a short walk from the very well... More

The Fife and Drum Bed and Breakfast is conveniently located to the College of William and Mary and Colonial Williamsburg and many wonderful restaurants and shops. But best of all, the owners, Billy and Sharon and their right hand person, Rhonda, will do all they can to make your stay as comfortable as possible. They are very knowledgeable and helpful.... More
