The Fife and Drum Inn was an excellent choice for my recent trip. It was comfortable, cozy, convenient, and the owners Billy and Sharon were full of helpful information on points of interest and restaurants. The beds were comfortable, the inn was clean and charming with its decor, and the breakfast was great! I will definitely be coming back again... More

Billy followed my wishes and had special items in the room upon our arrival. 30 roses placed beautifully throughout the room and a fruit chocolate and chz tray along with a... More

My husband and I visited the Fife & Drum for a romantic weekend getaway. We stayed in the Conservancy Room, which the owners rated one of the more romantic rooms. The bed was very cozy! We just loved the historic look of the Inn and the rooms within. The breakfast on both mornings was delicious! One thing we really loved... More

Can't say enough about this wonderful B&B! We stay here each time we visit Williamsburg. The rooms are clean, large and the staff is outstanding. The breakfast is homemade and the owners will sit and chat over the meal. It is convenient to everywhere in Williamsburg. I would recommend this to anyone!

Spent 3 nights over 2015-16 New Years at the Inn. Situated at the edge of the Historic Area, this INN is in walking distance of just about everything Colonial Williamsburg. The Innkeeper is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are decorated with appropriate furniture and colonial colors. Breakfast is simple but good. Love the homemade ham biscuits. There is free...

Initially had a hard time locating this delightful inn, but once found, was surprised it was on the second floor on top of stores on a busy street. But that didn't matter at all--in fact, added to its charm. Once we opened the door and climbed the stairs, we were met by Billy, the proprietor, who is gracious, accommodating, knowledgeable...

After a year's absence, we returned for our annual trip to Williamsburg and the Fife and Drum. As with a fine wine, the Fife and Drum improves with age. The usual excellent characteristics remain - convenience to Merchant's Square and the Historic Area, well thought out rooms (now with flat screen TVs (but we were so busy we never turned... More
