I arrived late, after the front desk staff had gone, and a wine dinner was taking place, so I ended up feeling a bit like an interloper. Charming building, nice location for walking downtown for shopping and dining out. Lovely staff at breakfast. I'd stay there again, but wouldn't go out of my way to do so.

We stopped in Fredericksburg during our road trip around Virginia. We were undecided if we would spend the night here until we happened upon this lovely B&B, right on the main street of Fredericksburg.. First we had a tour, conducted by the Innkeeper. A very personable lady with a great sense of humor. Luckily ,when we returned several hours later,... More

We've stayed at the Richard Johnston Inn two times. Both have been wonderful experiences. It's in the center of old town Fredericksburg. Walking distance to just about everything. Their breakfast is amazing and the staff is so friendly and helpful. I highly recommend it.

We enjoyed our stay 100% and have recommended the Inn to friends upon our return home. The location makes a vehicle an option for the weekend. We walked to restaurants, shops and parks. It was the perfect setting to spend time together. We have been to many B and Bs...you will not be disappointed at the Richard Johnston Inn.

Came in for a long weekend get away. Easy to locate with ample parking which is not always the case at B and B 's. Easy check in and friendly service. Very nice property in the heart of the historic district. Made it very convenient for the walking tour of Fredericksburg which had more of a colonial period emphasis. Only... More

I loved my stay at The Inn and will always stay there when I visit Fredericksburg. The rooms were spacious and beautifully appointed. The location can't be beat. Smack dab in the middle of the historic district....perfect. The breakfast was beyond outstanding....spinach and Feta omelette with roasted tomatoes on top was one standout offering. There were always two of three... More

Stayed here the hotel was very comfortable and quaint ..... However the breakfast table only sits 10 and they needed to serve 24 breakfasts. The staff turned up late and the Cook was also having to check quests out, this really let the inn down and needs addressing.

My daughter and I had a FANTASTIC stay in the Richard Johnston Inn!! We strolled down the historic town streets with its antique shops and boutiques. At night we ate dinner at Foodes, a wonderful small restaurant suggested by the Inn. The Inn couldn't have been nicer...so friendly, a very helpful staff, a perfect location for walking around the town,... More

My husband and I stayed at the Inn on March 7th, 2015, and we loved it! The furnishings, the food, the staff were all A-One. The convenient location is perfect, and you can walk to just about any place in historic Fredericksburg. I highly recommend the Richard Johnston Inn, and we will definitely be back!

...places like this are the reason why. Places like the Richard Johnston Inn have spoiled me rotten, and for that, I have no apology. Everything was immaculate. Our well-appointed and beautifully-decorated room was full of amenities, including a kitchenette with coffee, a complimentary decanter of bourbon alongside some chocolates, multiple sources of entertainment (two TVs and its own stash of...
