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...

We brought my mother-in-law here for her birthday and rented two of the downstairs suites. all of the wonderful Christmas decorations were still up and we enjoyed the Christmas trees in our rooms and the decorations all over the inn. They thought of so many little comforts: bubble bath in the bathroom, nice bed linens, candy bowls throughout, Kurig coffee... More

I was so surprised to find a tree and Christmas decorations in my room. The whole house was beautifully decorated for Christmas. Very warm and cozy. We were contacted by the inn keeper and used late check in which worked perfectly. The location is very convienient to walking around downtown.

We spent two nights here before Thanksgiving. We stayed in the Virginian room on the top floor fronting on Caroline Street. It had its own bathroom which we liked. Although we had read about possible noise, we were not bothered except by motorcycles and ambulances which fortunately were few. The house was decorated for Christmas, with plenty of trees, lights...

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Virginian room which was beautiful with a big comfy bed and a historic look to the room. The inn provided movies, sitting areas with reading material, and bourbon in our room. The dining room had cookies, coffee, water bottles, and tea. Our breakfast was delicious and plentiful. I had the raspberry french toast... More

Richly appointed and luxurious, the Inn makes you feel like you are in your own Victorian getaway. Stocked with lovely extras: nightcaps, chocolate, cookies, movies, bath powder, witty and entertaining coffee table books, a library, a reading / television room... I have stayed in the Canopy Room and the The Loft. The Loft is my favorite: it is a two-story... More

Weary of hotel chains and the plain rooms with lack of personality this hotel is a treat to stay in. We stayed in the loft and loved it. Our bedroom was on another level accessed via a staircase and we had a sitting area downstairs with bathroom. Was lovely and quiet considering its location and everything was supplied that we...
