We found the Fife and Drum Inn to be wonderfully located in Williamsburg, on the edge of both the colonial village, the campus of William and Mary College and the very nice commercial area. We stayed two nights. A nice cross between boutique hotel and a B&B.

Lovely bed and breakfast. Close to everything. Hot breakfast and parking included. There is no elevator and 17 rather steep steps which can be difficult for some. We found a less steep back stairwell which worked better for my mother. The hallway can get noisy in the morning so you may want to request a room away from the dining... More

My husband and I stayed one night at the Fife and Drum Inn in July. The location is excellent, near the shops and restaurants and museums. Free parking right across the street. The owners were wonderful and friendly. Our room was beautiful and we had everything we needed. Breakfast was great. We loved our stay!

One block away from all that Colonial Williamsburg has to offer you couldn't wish for a better location. Our hosts were helpful and friendly with details of this historic area and well as practical details such as parking, local eateries and a wonderful breakfast to start the day. Our room faced the rear of the property with a lovely shared... More

We stayed one night at the Fife & Drum, after a long week travelling. The owners were super friendly and even reached out to communicate when we were arriving later than expected. They made sure to leave our keys out for us and the room was ready and wonderful. A really great location near restaurants and within walking distance from... More

Had a lovely vacation here at Thanksgiving! We booked the cottage, lots of privacy and the kids loved the bunk room, even the 16 yr old! It felt like we had the whole house and were part of the colonial village! Loved it. The only down side is breakfast. There is a full one if you stay at the Inn.... More

Very clean and roomy Bed & Breakfast! The management is very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast buffet is of top quality! Only downfall we could see was it is not Handicap Accessible. We didn't need it to be but don't remember reading it when we booked our vacation. Very steep staircase with no elevator. One lower level cottage which is... More

Best place to stay in Williamsburg. You can't beat the convenience of being so close to Colonial Williamsburg, and Merchants Square. The rooms are so clean, and the breakfast offerings are fantastic. We've stayed for as many as 6 nights, have stayed for 6 different vacations, and won't consider any other place the next time we visit. Billy is a... More

The location was perfect....easy walk to shops, restaurants, Colonial Williamsburg, College of William & Mary. We stayed in the Yorktown room, which had a double bed and a single bed. The room looked historic, which we liked. Very comfortable. Bathroom had a shower (not a bath), everything modern. It was so nice to be able to return to our room... More

A superb location for visiting Colonial Williamsburg as well as William and Mary College. A walk out the front door and there you are! The atmosphere of the inn and individual rooms is quaint and charming. Everything is clean and cared for by the staff carefully. No details are overlooked and ready access to the Inn's host and hostess (owners)... More
