My husband and I recently stayed at Bentley Manor on our vacation to Colonial Williamsburg. We had never stayed at a bed and breakfast before, and venturing away from his old standby Embassy Suites was difficult for my husband at first. I did extensive research online and the excellent reviews convinced me to try Bentley Manor. From the moment of our arrival, we knew we had chosen wisely. Fred and Jane greeted us enthusiastically and were very accommodating of our arrival late on a Saturday night. They were extremely knowledgeable about the area and our stay was vastly improved by their wealth of knowledge. We stayed in the Thomas Jefferson room and my husband raved about the plush towels. The only negative thing I could say was the pillows were not as comfortable as we are accustomed to, but this was a trivial problem. The room was bright, exceptionally clean, and comfortable. Perhaps the highlight of the stay was Jane's breakfast. Each morning brought another delightful and challenging choice between a "sweet" breakfast or more traditional hardy breakfast. We both absolutely loved the sweet potato pancakes! We thoroughly enjoyed the company of other travellers over breakfast. The coffee is the some of the best my husband ever tasted and as a tea drinker I was pleased to find an excellent assortment of teas. Overall, the delicious breakfast is a wonderful way to start the day on a full, happy stomach! The inn is just a brisk walk to Colonial Williamsburg but conveniently off the main roads. I also cannot say enough about Fred and Jane's hospitality. We had to leave early to catch out flight and they graciously offered to have breakfast prepared 30 minutes earlier than normal to accomodate our departure. We loved our stay in Williamsburg and as we did not see even close to everything while we were there we will definitely be making plans in the future to return. I wouldn't dream of staying anywhere except Bentley Manor Inn!
