We stayed in one of the small suites. Very comfortable and convenient to Historical Williamsburg as well as retail shopping and good restaurants. Nice common room with coffee and snacks, delicious breakfast.

This little spot is really a gem. Rooms were very clean and updated. Quiet atmosphere. Weather was extremely humid so it was nice to come back to this inn to cool down and enjoy some lemonade before heading back out in the humidity. We picked this place because it was out first trip to Williamsburg and we did not want... More

Very conveniently located to Colonial Williamsburg and The College of William and Mary, where our daughter goes to school. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, breakfast is great and the staff is very helpful and kind. This is our second visit and we are looking forward to our third, booked for next month. Outstanding place to stay!

Great location for walking Colonial Williamsburg and not worrying about having to drive. I will definitely go back and stay here. Hosts are very knowledgeable and will help you with anything you need.

I booked this B&B for my wedding weekend. My step-daughter and I stayed in the Conservancy Room on the night before my wedding. My husband and I were supposed to stay there on our wedding night, but unfortunately a family emergency prevented that from happening and we had to travel home. However, the one night I got to stay at... More

I stayed here for two nights to enjoy Colonial Williamsburg and Jamestown. Breakfast was great. I really liked being so close to Colonial Williamsburg and all the places to eat! The owner was really sweet and made good recommendations about what to do around town. The bed was really nice.

Usually people spend 1 or few days in here... I have spent 2 weeks. The B&B is cheap, the location is perfect (in Williamsburg downtown) and their breakfast is very good: every day they prepare something slightly different. The room and most of the things in the B&B remind the colonial period, so if you like a bit of history,... More

Is a few doors down from famous Aroma's Coffee Shop and short walking distance to all things Merchant Square related, which is great! Each of their rooms have patriotic furnishings and unique furnishing attractors like claw-feet bath tub, or antique armoire, etc. Our room was very nice, albeit unusual bathroom entrance like a double closet has been made into a...

Wow! This place is terrific. The food was very good but location, location, location was outstanding. I would stay here over and over again. The people are so nice and the parking convenient. We could walk to the best eating places and to the bus that travels through Williamsburg every few minutes.

My husband and I decided to stay at the Fife and Drum after noticing the great reviews, convenience to Colonial Williamsburg, and the reasonable rates. We arrived after the front door was locked, but we were greeted with an envelope on the door with our name and room keys. The area is extremely quiet and the bed and breakfast had... More
